For Non-US people, you can listen to the Penguins radio feed on their web-site.

I swear this team was better when they played 3 in 3. Now that they only play 2 they don't seem to have the same intensity.

Quick impression

Kilhorn looks like he is ready to compete for an NHL spot. He was noticeable everytime he was on the ice.
Barberio was put in every situation and spent most of the night paired with Aulie and they looked great.
Johnson and Panik were buzzing all night and got stopped on some good chances.
Labrie was one of the others I noticed doing the little things well. Fight, battles, throwin the puck on net.

Tokarksi looked meh. He made some easy saves look very hard and didn't make any game savers or momentum boosters.
Connolly also didn't do anything impressive. He still does the one handed forechecking reach that I hate! He needs to skate through people and battle. Not poke check and pretend he is trying to get the puck.

Overall, had a good time. Met some guys after the game, and it really made me miss hockey. Obv this is a one game impression since I don't live in Syracuse but as a lightning fan I figured some would like my opinion lol. Any questions I'll answer too from what I saw

Quote:
The Crunch's puck-possession style results in allowing the fewest shots per game in the AHL, at 25.21. ...

Although goalies appreciate it when quality chances are cut down, most of them like to see a lot of pucks to help them stay sharp. This is where pockets of inactivity can be trouble when the opponent puts together a quick flurry of shots.
Quote:
"For a goalie, that's where the challenge lies, to be ready for the scoring chances,'' said Tampa Bay goalie coach Frantz Jean. "You're trying to stay engaged in the game as much as possible. There's different ways of doing that. But it's not an easy thing to do. You get good at it with time. You try to keep your body active as much as possible.''

Frantz said goalies have different coping strategies. Some will make an attempt to play the puck more, and skate side to side in the crease or toward the corners during stoppage of play.

Crunch goalie Riki Helenius said he has a few words he repeats to himself, although he wouldn't reveal that mantra.

"I guess the biggest thing is not trying to think about it too much,'' he said. "You just try to focus on the next shot, keep your mind on the next shot. I talk to myself all the time. I have a couple of lines I keep repeating, but I'm not going to tell those.''

Added fellow netminder Dustin Tokarski: "It's just about strong focus. I do what I do if I'm facing 10 shots or 25 shots. I'm always into it. Nothing changes in my game, You have to be into it.''

"You expect to win all of them at home,'' said forward Cory Conacher. "Christmas could have been a little better if we got that last one before the break. Our whole team, we hate losing. For that to happen at our home rink was something tough to swallow. Coming back from Christmas, that first game back guys have to be much more prepared than you think.''
Quote:
One thing Cooper said he isn't worried about is Conacher's scoring touch. Conacher has two markers in his last 15 games. After potting five in his first six contests this season, the reigning league MVP has the same number in his last 22.

"Cory's been fine,'' Cooper said. "He's just not getting points. Whenever he's not getting points, everyone's like, what's wrong with Cory Conacher?''

Conacher said he not dwelling on the drought.

"I think about that. But at the same time, I worry about doing good defensively, doing what's good for the team,'' he said.

First team to 40 points.

Hope he can get that fixed soon.
