    That 7-2 scoreboard did not tell the story of the Leafs beating the Jets.

    Can't be taking 8 penalties a game and expect to win.

    If this is how Murray plays all season you will be a happy man :lol:

    He has not been sharp at all through training camp and has given up four tonight so far...

    They clocked him going 41 KM/h for that goal then stops on a dime and doesnt touch the goalie.

    McDavid is such an amazing talent...

    and WTF Simmonds had a hat trick last night :nuts:

    The Pens just looked off... bunch of great opportunities missing the net, Kessel shanked the puck past a wide open cage, bad passes, that kind of thing. If it was later in the season I would be worried :lol:

    The Pens looked out of sync last night. Crosby was as good as always but just about everyone else looks like they need a few games to get their timing back. That Greg McKegg looks alright though, he made a few nice plays to set up scoring chances.

    Matthews with 3 points too. Looking forward to watching those two for the next 20 years.

    My Sharks opened with an L, lets hope the B's doesn't follow suit, but we've got Berg/Backes/Krug all injured so it's hard to be optimistic about going against Nashville :(

    Yep. Going to be interesting to see if Eichel's talent catches up with his ego and puts him in that group as well :lol:

    As a division rival of Matthews, not me :facepalm:

    Definitely McJesus though as he continues to overshadow Crosby, I'm just really burned out of hearing that name.

    Well Niemi certainly impressed in his Pens debut... gave up 4 goals on 13 shots in less than 10 minutes for a .692 save percentage :facepalm:

    I'm actually curious if that is some kind of franchise record...

    Murray hasn't been much better... 8-1 at the end of the second :facepalm:

    I'm pretty sure Ovechkin just told those damn kids in this league to get off his lawn with that hat trick.

    :wag:

    Without having looked, is it safe for me to say that all 3 were one-timers on his off-wing, fed to him on a silver platter while he camps, per usual? :tomato:

    Only two nights into the regular season and there have been a ridiculous amount of hat tricks :eek:

    One was a feed from from corner, he was all alone in the bottom of the circle. One on a passing play from directly out front. One from top of circle after stealing a puck of the boards. All even strength in about a 6 minute span during the 3rd. And a shootout goal for good measure.
