    Great shot by 81 there! Talbot looked awfully deep in the net, which helped I'm sure...lots of speed out there in OT with these two teams....happy to get the big W!

    Just saw the replay.......absolute no man's land for Talbot with Kessel in on the break. PK has a lot in his bag of tricks, and I don't know how a goaltender decides to play him. Pens outshoot the Oil 44-30.

    Both Schultz and Letang left the ice......Schultz earlier in the game and Letang in the 3rd. From listening to Mike Lange and ol' 2-niner, it sounded like Schultz may indeed be injured.

    I did see Letang head to the locker room under his own power, and not seeming like he was laboring. But when the words "Letang" and "hurt" are used in the same sentence, it's not a good development.

    Saw the replay of the game winner again......man, did Geno make some kind of pass to Kessel. Just flipped it dead flat to a spot where Kessel takes it in absolute full stride with Lucic in his vapor trail.

    @Irwineer2, gotta love when Letang scores a goal for the other team. Horrible play by him.

    Then he gets caught cheating down and the Jets get the puck past him for a 2 on 1. Dude got lucky we were able to get a stick on the centering pass or they score.

    What's up with the stick to the hand penalty? That lasted less than 1 week it seems. Patrick Laine was laying the lumber to Sid's hands (3 times in one shift) and really nailed Kessel as he scored the game winning g goal. Not one time did a refs hand go up.

    Also sticking it to Matt Cullen would help also.

    I have not watched one second of a PSU game since the Sandusky crime. I refuse to give an ounce of anything to them. When we play them in a couple of years, I will not watch it. Program should have been suspended for several years.

    Tie game thus far, but I don't think the Pens are all that fired up to play a Wild team who kicked their asses twice last season.

    Not being fired up to play seems to be the theme of the day.

    ANOTHER collapse in progress.......I wouldn't think anyone in the universe is happier right now than Antti Niemi.

    Murray did nothing in his first ever back to back start giving up the first 4 GA, but the Pens defense got blitzed in the last 5 minutes; from Letang to Troutman, they were completely lost as a group. Oh, and DeSmith gave up the 5th goal (on the first shot he ever saw in the League).

    Just hoping the Steelers bring a little more tonight than the Guins.

    Through 1 period tonight, the Pens have been outscored 27-6 in the second game of their back-to-backers thus far this year.

    Granted it's the kid's first ever action.......and in a blowout, no less......but DeSmith isn't showing much indication he's got any business in the NHL.

    Listen, you can feel however you choose about Letang......meanwhile, I happen to agree he had a lousy game last night, and it wasn't his first of the year. But if you're anxious to see him retire, I question your knowledge of the game.

    Uh oh...I sense a disagreement lol......
    Allow me to interject by saying I have no idea wtf he was thinkin on that particular play...I see the ref there but let's face it, thats really no excuse whatsoever. More like rather than make the proper play IMO and circle back round the net , with his partner partner Maatta to help out he got damned lazy, and figured he knew better.
    I honestly also wonder how his thought process is working now after having his bell rung in a serious manner several times. Is it affecting him more now? Maybe....doofus play by what is supposed to be an elite D man no doubt. Puss? Eeesh...not 58, with the abuse he's taken over the years IMO.

    Nonetheless the last 2 games concern me a bit, vs decidely weaker opposition. Zero jam outta them...

    only pens fans think he's elite. hockey canada sure doesn't think so

    I'm tired of watching him make stupid mental mistake after stupid mental mistake. too bad the pens couldn't get a used puck bag in return for him or I'd still be yelling for a trade like I have been since the 2012 meltdown in philly.
