    I'm not sure Iron Man is an appropriate reference given his first career game against Philadelphia resulted in 37 games on injured reserve. :lol:

    Srsly though, has anyone else seen the newly redesigned NHL.com and NHL app?

    I echo this sentiment.

    Yeah it's terrible :agreed:

    Also the Pens can't catch a break... Malkin and Fehr both out for back to back games against the top 2 teams in the Atlantic :wallbash:

    EDIT: the entire bottom 6 are AHL call ups tonight...

    Pens vs. Flyers outdoor game confirmed. Not sure if it'll be the winter classic or not. Also, it really is right up the NHL's alley to take some unique and special and drive it into the ground. "Hey the winter classic has been a huge success, let's have 9 of them a year instead of one!"

    That, and it will be the fourth or fifth outdoor game for the Pens while most teams in the league are still waiting for their first. The same applies to the Flyers although they still haven't been in as many as the Pens. I don't mind the outdoor games but I wish they would start mixing up the teams more. So much untapped potential...why not something like the Wild hosting the Dallas Stars? I bet Minnesota hockey fans would eat that .... up and tickets would be sold out within hours. Hell, that's a game I'd even want to watch without having any connection to either team.

    Pens beat Florida in overtime :woot:

    With two full lines of AHL players and a fourth line center taking Malkin's place...

    Sidney Crosby = hottest player in the NHL right now


    I would love to see that game happen in the future. At the least, Dallas is one team that should be getting a taste of the outdoor game exposure.

    Habs just got big time screwed by a ref.

    Final 1:30 of the game, down by the score of 5-4, 6-on-4 players, sustaining lots of pressure with scoring chances, a cleared puck hits the ref at the center ice, catching the last man back completely flat-footed and allowing for an easy empty net goal :mad:

    That crap happens so often it's almost not even worth bitching about now... Warsofsky is STILL out for the Pens with a concussion because a linesman fell and tripped him and he slammed his head into the ice :facepalm:

    Yeah I suspect he will be gone shortly... GM JR said we will "be seeing more of Murray after the trade deadline"

    Also good to see the Pens still can't beat teams like the Rangers and Bruins... it will be interesting to see how they do against the Rangers next week when they're not missing their second and third line starting centers.

    Yeah that Chi/DC game was boring and slopping the first pd. 2 and 3 were good though. I also can't complain having grown up in Chicago...

    Caps need to lose a few, they have looked like garbage since the snowstorm hit and they played once over 13 days. They have been real sloppy defensively.
