No, really, he means it. Vitale will dress next game. You see, the shortened bench prevented him from playing with Geno. Makes perfect sense if you think it through. #BYLSLOGIC

Still think Scuderi to Malkin to Gill was better.

Oh, and + to the Pens FO for removing Jags from the locker room ... maybe the first home game Jags hasn't scored?

Remember when Craig Adams didn't score for two years? On pace for 82!

Got better as the game went on. A little uneasy early, but that should be expected. He is smart beyond his years.

Loved his game. Stick always moving and breaking up passes and plays, solid first pass. Not the most physical guy but we knew that already. Glad he didn't get hurt in the 2nd when he received that big hit

+ Fleury's performance tonight

- Steigy and Errey spending the last 5 minutes acting like Fleury hasn't had major problems the past 4 years.

Plus you want a guy to struggle a little. Tyler Myers really didn't and now he is a train wreck.

He was calm and controlled in net, rarely out of position, and swallowed up a lot of pucks. Aside from the one pass to Niskanen, he kept puck movement quick and simple. All in all, it's exactly what we needed to see from him; now he just needs to feed off it and power his way to a career year!

Reminds me of a guy like a young Teppo Numminen, who debuted at 20. Nothing sexy to his game at all but the things that stand out are his mind, his positioning, how he works with his stick, and his calm presence. Unlike others, even tonight, he never once looked like he was chasing or struggling to see how the play was developing or losing track of guys.

Very impressed. He's very poised for such a young guy. He looks like he has years in the league, already. Certainly some nerves, there but overall he was solid. He even largely did a great job covering up his own (very occasional) screw-ups. Very nice first pass, too. And a great stick... very active and crafty.

They look like they have a keeper, for sure. He (should) make it tough on them when it comes time to make a decision, if he keeps it up.

Bate and hook.


Moving along, it is nice having two 3rd line wingers who'r not one trick ponies. Not so much Cooke, but definitely, Kennedy.

I'm quite excited to see this Bennett, Sutter, Kobasew for 82.

Let's hope he has a better ticker.

I think it also bears mentioning that, for all intents and purposes, you basically had a rookie third pairing back there and they never found themselves in a situation where the middle of the ice (the prime scoring areas) was unprotected.

Not good but not bad. Made some mistakes but bailed himself out of them. I think/hope he'll be returned to London eventually but for now he's getting good experience and more or less held his own tonight.
