    This is as good as I can find, even a couple of days later:

    And it would appear that Bergevin is actively looking to trade Pacioretty. No intensity or level of engagement in his game anymore, the league has changed and he hasn't adapted at all.

    ^ wow...

    So Sprong is back in the NHL, it'll be interesting to see how he does since he has been tearing it up in the AHL.

    Schultz and Letang are both at practicing again and Murray is back tonight.

    Long term I actually think Jarry is likely to be the better goaltender...

    Interesting, Jarry got the start tonight. Wonder if Murray's last horrible performance against the Wings cost him his starting job since Jarry was good while he was out...

    I hope Niemi didn't teach him anything.

    Yeah the defense in front of him isn't good, but he just looks bad. It's really funny watching fans that know nothing about hockey defend him too... currently he's slow side to side, over commits and gets out of position easily, and his glove hand is terrible.

    Then again the whole team looks tired this season.

    I can’t believe they are dead last in 5v5 goals.

    As of today only 56 of their 114 goals are 5v5. Their PP is over 25% and 1st overall, so that is keeping them from being Buffalo/Arizona bad.

    Pens looked good tonight, Sprong on Crosby's wing was killer. It'll be interesting to see how they do on Sunday against Boston since consistency seems to be seriously lacking.

    So last year the Flyers won 10 in a row and missed the playoffs. This year they lost 10 in a row and might make the playoffs.

    That would be a very Flyers thing to do.

    Great win by the Pens last night against Boston. Not pretty as it was 6-5 final but they didn't quit when they got down and kept coming and filling the net. Downside Jarry gave up some terrible goals and got pulled... but they limited shots on Murray once he was in net to 6 :lol:

    :rofl:

    Oilers have lost 6 of the last 7 and have a historically bad penalty kill. See you guys next year.

    I'm already looking more forward to the offseason than the rest of this one :squint:

    I am still hoping the Pens make the playoffs, but it also wouldn't surprise me if they don't. It's going to depend entirely on consistency, which they really haven't shown lately. They finally won two games in a row again going into their bye week, but that 6-5 win over the Bruins, while showing great character, also showed some really shaky goaltending.

    So does anybody else just not care at all about the All Stars game?
