And even so the Pens still almost managed to lose
Wide open net and he flubbed it!
Can't complain too much being down two goals in the first period. That's 5 games since the start of 2016 the Pens have erased a two goal deficit. I don't think we saw that once when they were playing under Johnston this season.
They've definitely squandered some much need points under Sullivan though.
They're definitely better than they were... they just need to be better in their own end. The offensive zone play and zone exits are much better than they were under Johnston. Unfortunately they're still not a defensively strong team. Despite the press crowing they weren't under Johnston either, they had one of the worst shots against per game in the league (IIRC 27th or 28th) and fantastic goaltending gave them a great goals against average. They're still 25th in shots against per game.
Oh and they need a backup goalie
Oh my, Matt Hendricks got a real close call.
I just came here to post that lol. Injury woes continue for the Oilers, who lead the league in man games lost due to slapshots to the dick.
He is a magnet for injury. That slapshot to the ankle that ruptured his skin earlier. He ate an Ovechkin shot to the ear in DC when he was here.
So what is everyone's take on this juicy little morsel?
Wideman's argument that he was dazed, confused, and didn't see him until the last second seems completely contradictory to the video, in which Wideman seems quite deliberate in the way he skated to the official and shoved his stick into his back. Fascinating.
Wow that was just bizarre. I doubt Wideman was rational and deliberately hit him, but still just really bizarre.
Watching it again, Wideman definitely took a nasty hit in the corner before skating off, so I suppose it's possible. But from that rear camera angle...it really looks to me like he was skating to the bench, the linesman cut him off, and he just cross checked him instead of trying to get out of his way. Just my third-party, after-the-fact observation. It is very bizarre though, everyone is suggesting that Wideman may (and probably will) be slapped with an outrageous suspension along the lines of Raffi Torres this past preseason.
It looked like he hit him on purpose to me, although I believe he may have been concussed and not thinking clearly.
That's what I was thinking as well...
So yeah, that All-Star Game. John Scott...
Didn't watch any of it, saw the stories afterwards. Good for him.
I could watch 3 on 3 with highly skilled players all day.
They actually skated pretty well, unlike the usual all star games as of late. I think the 3 on 3 format forces them to move or look stupid. John Scott showed some skill as well. If anyone hasn't read his article in The Players Tribune (awesome site), it is worth a read. While other players may have been more deserving of an appearance, the way the NHL handled the situation was an embarrassment. They wanted the fan voting and didn't like the results.

I thought naming John Scott the NHL player of the week was a bit much. There is pressure in Montreal to call up John Scott to play... I would be surprised if it happened, but wouldn't mind
Anyone else find the timing of the announcement of Bettman's contract extension distasteful?
^Agreed. It was good to see everyone have fun and all but I still can't look past the cheap shots he has pulled especially the one against Jackman.
I did lol at this
And when Bettman came out
No, THIS is a bit much.
^ Honestly it has movie written all over it. It's Rudy.
