Last night was his first game back from injury. He, like the rest of the team didn't do much. Pretty lackluster game from a Baby Pen's POV. Overall I think he is doing well in his first season as a pro. You see him flash the skill from time to time.
And I think his skating is getting better. He is progressing nicely.

I'll be at the rematch tonight if anyone else is going.

Last night was rough, Grant was not good in his own zone, Morrow as well. Love Farnham, I see a Matt Cooke in the making there. Bennet was pretty invisible but I think he's good enough that is is more of an anomaly than the norm. Theissen could have been better but he wasn't really getting a lot of help.

I really don't like how Pirre Robert Luc Earl Leternou Sam Leblond Smith handled himself. Bunch of dudes going after farnham. When it starts to get dicey between farnham and another player an enforcer goes after farnahm? WTF? Then when Mac goes back after said enforcer dude backs down? Pretty Gutless hockey from Norfolk in that situation if you ask me. Loved Farnham pulling the dude out of the scrum to fight him though. Can't wait to see him next to our lord and Saviour Joe Victory in a couple years. Really looks like he could replace a lot of what adams brings on the fourth line.

Is there likely to be a stream of the WBS game anywhere?

Grant wanted blood there.

As usual, Big Mac is the ugly girl at the dance. No one will go with him.

Farnham was terrific, I thought. But you're not going to win many games when a 4th line pest is your best player.

I probably sound like a broken record, but I really hope Farnham gets an NHL deal here soon.

I'm breaking down and buying this game, hopefully they look better than last night.

Bennett with two big hits in this period.

Gibbons....that little monkey can skate. So can Megna, both of them can fly.

Dumoulin has this weird bow legged, awkward skating style. Kinda funky looking.

Maatta has a funky skating style to. I hated it at first, but it works for him.

He isn't a bad skater at all, just... well, funky.

Absolutely. It is a style that works for him. He gets around just fine.

Nice play Beau. Baby Pen's score, not sure if it will be BB's goal, it may have been tipped.

Caputi off the upper body, goes in, but does not count.

Luca Caputi sighting!

He almost had a goal, but they called it back. It seemed more like it hit his forearm, even though Grace is saying he batted it down with his hand.

Caputi and Samuelsson just fought. Both guys kept falling down, Samuelsson controlled most of the fight until he fell down and Caputi landed most of his punches with Samuelsson on the ice.

Luca Caputi and Sameulsson square off.

Kinda awkward looking as neither are fighters.

2 on 0 shorthanded goal by Norfolk.

Grace ragging on Morrow, but that play is definitely on Kolarik.

Crosby is actually a bow-legged skater, but you don't notice unless you watch him in slow-mo.

Just about to post the exact thing.

Stupid play by Kolarik. He can see all of his teammates in deep and he is only one back, and he decides to take a low percentage point shot, with the lane blocked. Stupid.

Did you see Morrow fly to get back?? I love seeing him skate. He is a world class skater. No doubt.
Shades of Duncan Keith, with probably a smoother skating stride. Although he has A LOT of work to do in his own end. But to see him skate is a joy.

It stands out more with Dumoulin because of his size. He is a lanky dude.
