I really don't like Geno's line.

Should be:
Kunitz- Malkin- Neal
Dupuis- Jokinen- Iginla

I still hate Orpik-Eaton.

Great period by Morrow and TK.

Meh period by the Geno line.

Morrow seems to have found his game tonight. Playing hard and generating a offense.

Jokinen looks incredible for a guy who's only been with the team a day or two. Errey even mentioned he's asked a lot of questions about the system on the bench.

If Im a dman and I see that many players standing in the neutral zone, I skate that up myself. Someone's going to have to move eventually and something will open up. Worst case scenario is dumping the puck in deep rather than an odd man rush the other way.

Orpik needs to watch a game from the press box. He's been a liability out there for too long.

We have 4 guys who can skate the puck up and 3 of them are in street clothes

If you have Letang or Martin or even Despres, this is feasible. With our current crew, though...

I wouldn't say ass, but he is playing like a guy who doesn't want the puck. He looks like he is playing hurt. He also seems a little confused out there,so some settling in confidence issues maybe?

Morrow looked really good in the first period. The team as a whole looks much more determined than they did the past few games.

But ten periods of play and Geno's line still hasn't worked.

1. Our breakout SUCKS! (What do we expect when our top 2 puck moving defensemen are out).

2. The Neal-Malkin-Iginla line is just frustrating. Neal/Iginla are redundant. Morrow is playing his way onto that line. He had great chemistry with Malkin/Neal in that one game.

3. Kunitz-Jokinen-Iginla, Morrow-Malkin-Neal, Cooke-Sutter-Duper, Who really cares (but good job TK).

Pens must be the most snake bit team in the league this week. The ranger net repels close zhots. Those are going to start going in.

Do I have to be the guy that has to regretfully hope a guy gets hurt so he's taken out of the lineup?

Vitale-TK-Adams would be a pretty annoying line to play against.

****ing Christ I honestly don't remember a more useless player than Tanner Glass.

Give Iginla more time with Malkin and Neal than Zach Boychuck, guys.

Making a lot of mistakes lately. If Letang and/or Martin were healthy, he'd probably be in WBS getting some ice time.

Its hard to do without without Crosby, Letang and Martin. When that wall play doesn't work the Pens have to carry the puck up ice. I'm hoping the Pens pull a reverse and come up the other wing.

Good period for Morrow. I hope that this is his level of play for the rest of the year.

Lots of chemistry issues with the Pens right now but I think having the weekend off is going to be huge.

Kunitz-Malkin-Neal please!!!!
