Cole's Plus/Minus: Pens vs. Isles for #15
 
Plus

+ Vokoun: Wow what a game by TV. Just great to see this guy live up to why we overpaid for a backup goalie. We needed someone to step up and he has. He's so calm, cool, and collective out there. Vokoun has a small shaky period after his Philly collapse and then has been stellar ever since. Wonderful game. A game we needed.

+ Matt Cooke: Cooke single-handedly changed the tide of the game. His 2nd period efforts started the inspiration the Pens needed. Then he comes out and matches it in the 3rd. One of the best games I've seen Cooke play in a long time. I also like that is he back agitating. Great game by #24.

+ Team defense: I really like what Murray does for this group. We are clearing the crease and all 2nd chances. It's made a huge difference. Eaton, too, had one of his best games of the season. Especially on the PK.

+ Dupuis: Loved #9 today on the PK and 5 on 5. He was great. Great speed and tenacity. He really focused after Sid went down.

+ Morrow: I love what Morrow does. I have no clue what Dallas fans saw because it's not happening in Pittsburgh. He wins so many battles down low and is a beast in front of the net.



#15 baby! What's better? #16

Minus

Nothing. I think the team effort was tremendous. Let's hope Sid is okay.

The Penguins just swept March.

Isles embarassed themselves by trying to score on Vokoun. Just take the shutout and be on your way.

And for those keeping score at home, 15 is indeed better than 14.

+ Isles fans whining. It's glorious.

Hope Sid's okay.

+Got to give massive props to Vokoun. He had a stretch where his play was nothing short of an abomination, but has been amazing for the last month or so. Seems like he was nursing a lower body injury in that bad stretch, because he was excruciatingly sluggish then, he looks much quicker now. THIS is exactly why he was traded for and signed.

This stretch of minutes without giving up a goal is the longest shutout streak in Pens history as well. Great that it is shared between Flower and Voky.

15 in a row!

- i missed the game because...

+ i was at Hershey Park most of the day (still here too)

hopefully Crosby only lost a tooth or a few teeth. if that's the issue, he shouldnt be out too long. also i will have to see what Kunitz's boarding major looked like before i comment on it

Good win guys. Hoping to catch the rest of them this season!

Ogrezilla 03-30-2013 02:38 PM

can we set up a kickstarter to fund a DVD narrated by Morgan Freeman about this winning streak?

Shrimper 03-30-2013 02:38 PM

First team to sweep a month?

Griffin6612 03-30-2013 02:39 PM

What a game. So glad I got to watch the whole thing. Just great battles.

Common Sense 03-30-2013 02:39 PM

I'm not sure I've seen this team play better hockey. That PK was insane.

leafspensfan 03-30-2013 02:39 PM

this is the true march madness

roready 03-30-2013 02:39 PM

++++to toughness (already had Cooke)

About a week ago, I thought we needed to add some toughness - then we got Morrow and Murray - I said why not add Clowe - so this were my posts on the Clowe speculation trade thread:

The Pens have a new strategy. Take the lead in the 1st period and then beat up the other team. The Pens will start winning games 1-0 or 2-0 (maybe 2-1).

The Pens still need Clowe to help with the toughness,
so what do you say a 1st + Glass for Clowe?

bathroomSTAAL 03-30-2013 02:39 PM

I hope Eugene Melnyk was watching this game and destroyed his house

gopens66 03-30-2013 02:39 PM

This just in: 15 is more than 14!

Go Pens!

IcedCapp 03-30-2013 02:39 PM

Boing really matters. Anyone can see. Nothing really matters. To me.


Is my brain wrong, or have the Pens given up 1 goal in the last 5 games?

Everything.


First team in league history to ever sweep a month and we have as many shutouts this week as we had all of last season. There's really not much more that needs to be said than that.

Giskard 03-30-2013 02:40 PM

Get rid of the blue 3rd-jersey before someone gets killed!!

This can't be stressed enough. Way to go Pens.

+ Playoff hockey seems to be here the rest of the way.
