    ^ Nice save

    Well, that game against the Flyers wasn't pretty but I'll take the win. Pens REALLY need to get better in their own end and stop taking stupid penalties.

    If he and the rest of the Habs can maintain this pace and not repeat last season's embarrassment, I'll admit defeat. :lol:

    Also, did anyone catch Connor McDavid's Senators-caliber defense on the Leafs' OT goal last night? Burned badly by Nazem Kadri and then goes straight into sour grapes mode to the referee. Not his finest night.

    I'd say we have another 20 or so games before complete collapse :ugh:

    He truly is the successor to Crosby :fawk:

    Yup, Kadri grabbed his shoulder and pulled on it to get leverage and throw him off balance because he knew he couldnt beat him in a foot race. A holding call 99% of the time.

    It didnt even upset me because the entire game they were giving him late hits and so much clutch and grab and nothing was being called anyways.

    Im sure it will happen. It seems like every young star player that comes into the league lately has a problem with the refs not giving them calls. I wouldnt expect anything different.

    Haven't scored in a few games? Don't worry, the Pens will give up 3 to you :facepalm:

    Interesting to see that so far this season, for the first time in I don't know how many, the Eastern Conference teams have better W-L records than the West.

    Yeah several of the East teams look really good this season. It's going to be interesting to see how things shake out, lots of cool story lines to watch and a crop of new superstars in the making. Definitely a fun year to be a fan.

    He's manhandling the rest of the league right now. Give it a month and he'll be leading the rest of the league in scoring by at least 10 points.
