Engellend gets his second goal as a 4th line winger. Really liking him at that spot. It's good to know he can be versatile.
And you're right Killer, Malkin is completely snake bitten right now. I felt so bad that he couldn't even get the empty netter last night. I thought for sure Jokinen would pass it back to him for a tip in or something. But no go lol.
Loved the fact Pittsburgh recorded a shutout. Zatkoff did play well, I agree. He's progressed over his 3 starts this year. Looks promising as a backup to Fleury, for the time being. I was going to say it is important for a strong team like Pittsburgh to have a reliable backup goalie. Hopefully Zatkoff can fill that role while Vokoun is on IR. The Penguins will need it!
