Good to see Lefebvre off to a good start. He really slumped bad all year last season.

Is this a preseason game or is it the regular season?

Games Over WBS wins 5-2. Fleury made 15 saves on 16 shots. Chiodo made 12 saves on 13 shots. WBS looking good between the pipes.

Sounds like the powerplay is clicking on all cylinders. Lupaschuk and Whitney should be a fine pairing.

I kind of like Lefebvre. I think that he could slip under the radar and be a pretty good player for the Pens. While not overly skilled he has some good sense and is willing to get his nose dirty. Players like that are hard to judge but they just put up points. I hope that he can keep it going.

Normally I wouldn't do this for a preseason game, but since it's pretty much going to be the opening night roster:

Surovy-Beech-Armstrong: Beech and Surovy were really off their games tonight. Surovy in particular was very weak on his skates. Out of the four lines (which were rolled evenly) this was the least impressive. Armstrong was good on the PK.

Murley-Endicott-Ouellet: Were solid both ways. Didn't do much in the offensive end, except for the Endicott goal, but did maintain most of the pressure there.

Abid-Talbot-Hussey: IMO the best line on the ice. They did everything you'd want a line to accomplish; crisp passing, cycling down low, good work against the boards, solid forechecking, you name it. Talbot made a great pass down low to set up Hussey's goal.

Lefebvre-Christensen-Paddock: Surprisingly, the most physical line by far. Neither of Lefebvre's goals were impressive by any means (an open net from 2 feet, an open net off his skate), but he was AMAZING through all zones. His checking was the best I've seen, and it's great to see him pull it together. Christensen had a very active stick which created a number of opportunities for the line.

Nasreddine-Whitney: Whitney was the number three star, but I didn't think he played too well. He was holding the puck too long before he made a play, and the second goal was a result of him mishandling the puck and falling down. Nasreddine played up to his usual standards.

Scuderi-Kelleher: Scuderi was his usual self. Kelleher seemed very tentative on both sides of the puck.

Koci-Lupaschuk: Lupaschuk was the best skater on the ice for both teams. It seems Ross learned to play defense in the offseason. Great. Koci brought the usual "I'm going pound you into the glass and make you like it" aspect. Too bad he couldn't find a dancing partner.

Chiodo: Wasn't tested all that much. On the goal he allowed, he was left all alone down low and the forward just waited for him to commit and put it past him. Most of Hershey's shots on him were from a pretty far distance out.

Fleury: Definitely improved on his positional game. Had a couple of moments where he dropped down too early and tried getting up, while in the meantime a shot was on the way. On the goal he allowed, Whitney had a brainfart and left the puck for the forward to come in all alone. Fleury tried the pokecheck, missed, and unsuccessfully tried a Hasek-esque rollover on his back. Tested more down low than Chiodo.

It was a halfway decent game from the Pens for a preseason tilt. They seemed to lay off a bit after the 1st period. Hopefully that won't be a sign of things to come.

Thanks for the updates. I'm not going to spend the time to actually listen to the games now, but it's good to get a recap of what's happening.

Nice job on the lines.

They look different from what I was figuring the lines would be, but I like Therrien's thinking. They've got 3 potential-30 goal scorers in Abid, Surovy, and Ouellet, and they're all spread out. Good thinking.

Just think of how good they'll be when they get Beech and Surovy rolling.

I think that when the season starts they're basically going to have one too many forwards with Eaves coming back. I hope what Therrien does is basically have a turnstyle-esque rotation between Talbot, Eaves, Paddock and Christensen. Maybe some of these guys only get to see 50 games of action in the season, but in those 50 games they'll be able to see quality minutes.

The defensive pairings are what I expected.

Great job and thanks. When you hear that Lefebvre is scoring you can pretty much bet that they are garbage goals. Thats something that the Pens have been missing since Bourque, Erry and Loney have left. I was hoping that TK could fill that role but if GL can get his game back it would be a huge +.

Yeah i hope Beech starts to become the player he's supposed to be, within his own talents i mean. The guy can be a good playmaker some day, i hope he does good this year in the A.
