Craig Adams scored two goals in a game for the firt time since 2006, and Marc-Andre Fleury was nearly flawless as the Pens beat the Winnipeg Jets 3-1.
Beau Bennett looked good in his NHL debut as well. James Neal's powerplay goal in the third that put the Pens up 2-0 was the eventual game winner.
The debris from the meteor today in Russia was more impressive than Eric Tangradi's Winnipeg debut.

During a win over the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday night, Cooke threw what appeared to be a clean hit on Ottawa’s Erik Karlsson, but the replay revealed that it was more...
GM Ray Shero stopped off in Minnesota while the rest of the team headed to Winnipeg on Thursday. He spent some time meeting with former co-workers, Wild GM Chuck Fletcher and Coach Mike Yeo. Word has it that he was doing a little scouting while there as well and that he might have interest in either Devin Setoguchi or Pierre-Marc Bouchard. Neither would cost the Pens more than a...

Nothing strikes fear like a bunch on Penguins but if the Winnipeg Jets hope to turn their listing ship around a win against one of the few teams they have previously beaten would help. Life is tough right now for the second year team as they search for answers to the myriad of questions about why the offense fails to lift off.
Yesterdayâs media storm around the team had to do with...
