Too soon to make too much out of this. Could very well be simply that Kris Letang's "lower body" (read: groin) injury is worse than originally anticipated. Matt Niskanen has been skating the past couple of days, but may not be ready to return to the lineup soon.
Interesting: #Penguins have recalled 2011 first-round pick Joe Morrow, a defenseman.

I can’t even describe my emotions right now. Despite a killer blizzard, the old saying goes, “The show must go on.” Well, it did and that game was a beauty. Two teams, the Pittsburgh Penguins and the New Jersey Devils, both came into this game on big win streaks and high spirits. The winner would enjoy the Atlantic Division and Eastern Conference lead for the...
Finally we now have a levels systems. We're open to making changes on it and would appreciate feedback.
The standard is at least 150 games played with the Pens:
For last week, Paul Martin is in the Money Zone:
He is doing everything he has been signed to do. Move the puck, eat big minutes, and chip in with some points.
We will end with this interesting...
