Penguins 5, Canadiens 4 (SO)

So what happened? Dustin Jeffrey, Kris Letang and Evgeni Malkin happened. Two of those happenings would not have been possible just a week or two ago, so it's nice the see the Pens getting important contributions from some of the guys recently returned from injury.  Richard Park is another player who has provided a few important goals. Jeffrey had the best night of...

Ooo eee, ooo ah ah, ting Letang, walla walla bing bang

Kris Letang had what I would call a triumphant return from concussion.  After missing 21 games, Letang played over 24 minutes with an Assist and a +2.  And don’t forget, Pooty-Tang was a Top 10 fantasy Defenseman last year and was well on his way to doing the same this season.  Then he took a shot to the head.  The bad news is concussion comrade Crosby looked great in his...

Friday’s Three Stars: Jeffrey, Malkin take over for Penguins; Ponikarovsky to New Jersey

No. 1 Star: Dustin Jeffrey, Pittsburgh Penguins The Montreal Canadiens jumped out to a 3-1 lead in this game, but they couldn't stop the Penguins' dominant centre. No, not Evgeni Malkin -- Dustin Jeffrey, who scored twice and added an assist to keep the Penguins in the game. Speaking of Malkin though, he eventually went into beast mode and scored the game-tying goal. Rawr...

Montreal blows another one

The Canadiens blew a 4-2 lead Friday night, losing 5-4 in a shootout to Piitsburgh. The Habs have now won 1 of 8 shootouts, and scored 4 goals in them. But who’s counting? Many will blame PK Subban for this loss, pegging him for the Dustin Jeffrey goal that started the comeback. I think that’s bunk. Scott Gomez was out of position, and the rest of the team basically stopped...
