Well, like every game this season, I'm going to be looking to see how we play against Ottawa. Leave the score out of it. Win or lose, we played pretty reckless hockey against them all last season. Similar to what we did all last season against Ottawa.

I'm sure if we get to our game, then things will be better.

Side note: One of the ugly games against Ottawa, I remember a sequence where Nick Foligno completely undressed the Pens in their zone. He doesn't do it a lot, but he's capable of doing it once in a while. It dawned on me then that, outside of Sid and Geno, the Pens had on their roster no forward more offensively creative than Nick Foligno. Think about that. Even Neal, who's a top forward, is a top forward because of that shot, not because of any great individual playmaking ability. And, then we wonder why, when the Pens aren't 'playing their game', why Sid and Geno go off the reservation.
