Wednesday night, we were all treated to a great hockey game. Friday night, we got an ordinary one. No one would talk about this game ever again if it weren't for an apparent big-time injury to Evgeni Malkin. Malkin went crashing into the boards early in the third period. It looked horrible.
This game had a good pace to it at the beginning, but Florida was on the second night of a Pennsylvania back-to-back. They looked like they were just waiting to die. And Matt Niskanen fired the shot that killed them. The Pens got another GWG from the defense this week. Two more points in NHL bank city.
Interesting reports by some folks on press row that Blues GM, Doug Armstrong, was in the house watching the game.
St. Louis GM Doug Armstrong and scouts from 10 other teams are scheduled to attend Penguins-Panthers game.
