Very impressive win by the Pens tonight - I honestly thought it wasn't a good matchup at all for them, particularly defensively. I thought the Preds would skate all around them, but I was happily proven wrong! Everyone stepped up and played solid team defense, and matched Nashville stride for stride. Our D may not be as mobile as Nashville's, but they've shown that they aren't slouches, getting to loose pucks all night and playing good, positional defense while not taking a lot of penalties. Fleury was solid again in goal; Crosby, Staal and Malkin were great again and the ageless Mark Recchi had another good game. This might be their most impressive effort of the season - they pretty much dominated the top team in the league from start to finish.

Next up are our favorite whipping boys, the Flyers. Let's hope the Pens don't have a letdown - the Flyers have actually been playing some decent hockey lately and should not be taken lightly.
