Tom Barasso was inducted into the hall of fame
4 in a row baby!! Couple shut-outs in this mini win streak.
I always remember he was involved in one of the stranger plays I ever saw in the NHL. The puck hit his helmet and bounced to the goal post where it bounced off that right back into his helmet and when he shook his head the damn puck went into the net. We were up by 4 goals so we got a good laugh out of it.
That was incredibly sad. I remember all too well when Malarchuk was injured. Very sad it cost this young man his life. Damn dangerous game when you think about it. Surprised it doesn't happen more often.
Glad they don't take players personality and overall attitude into consideration, or he'd never get in. Grateful that he backstopped the Pens to back-to-back Cups, and I enjoyed watching him play, especially his awesome puck handling skills, but he's a complete a$$hole of a human being.
That aside, the boys are playing much better. I've been impressed with Jarry, first for standing up and saying, "I need to be a lot better", then going out and doing just that. Need to keep it rolling.
Very entertaining game tonight. Sid's deflection to take a 4-3 lead late in the third was just sick. He gets the hat trick. I don't know how the hell these guys do it. Like Karlsson scoring on a 45-50' slapper and hitting about a 1/2' by 1' area. That was all the space he had.
5 in a row baby!!!!
Well, reality has set in again after the last couple of games against playoff caliber teams. This team simply does not have the speed to play the way they try to. It leads to lots of turnovers, one shot and done offensive zone visits and too many odd man rushes against.
Maybe they can move out of the metro to the western conference
And yet another shut out over those sin city boys.
Team is very confusing so far.
I understand all good things must end but I really got use to the Pens being a shoo-in to make Playoffs. Odd seeing them down at bottom.
I can't believe the Bolts didn't score more than two goals in the first last night the way the forwards and defenseman were standing around. Credit to Jarry for that. Then, they outplay them in the second and the third with Jarry becoming the first Pens goaltender to score a goal. Unreal.
And Carter scores the game winner to pass Sid for #2 on the active list with 89 goals. Go figure.
They are going nowhere as long as the PP is an absolute dog
