Penguins assistant Gilles Meloche was a long-time NHL goaltender and no slouch with 270 wins.

The Penguins placed Sidney Crosby injured reserve. It’s hard to look at this most recent development as good news for anyone.
Penguins captain Sidney Crosby, out since Dec. 5 because of a recurrence of concussion-like symptoms, was placed on the injured list on Saturday. Crosby has already been out the required time for someone on the injured list, so he could be activated at any time. He missed his fifth game, since his latest injury, on Saturday when Pittsburgh hosted Buffalo.
So what happened?
This was a surprise. The only other game this season that was this lopsided was Crosby's return against the Islanders.
The Pens dominated almost from the drop of the puck. Chris Kunitz established a physical tone early on, and the team (and crowd) fed off of that and never looked back.
It didn't hurt that they were playing against two goalies...

The Penguins' injury report grew again when defenseman Paul Martin missed Saturday's game against Buffalo at Consol Energy Center.

If you were to pick three goaltenders who you'd want on your team from watching this season, who would you pick? I'd pick two of the three guys who are starting in net in Detroit's game tonight: Jimmy Howard, Jonathan "I'm Not Slow" Quick, and Tim "I'm Gunna Hit You" Thomas. What do they all have in common other than being very good...
