Penguins Report: First CONSOL Practice

The 10 a.m. scrimmage is over. Here are some highlights (courtesy of Jason Seidling):
16:50: Chris Collins was all on alone on a breakaway but Brent Johnson made a nice right-pad save.
4:22: GOAL! Arron Asham found his own rebound behind the net. He got the puck to Maxime Talbot, who found Mark Letestu on the doorstep. Letestu buried the shot.
0:44: Zbynek Michalek boards Talbot, giving him a penalty shot. But the puck rolled off of Talbot's stick before he could get a shot on goal.
7:32: Crosby and Dupuis carry the puck on a two-on-two. Crosby draws in both defensemen and slipped the puck to Dupuis in front of the crease. Dupius made a move to his backhand to get Modig down on the ice, then sneaked a shot under his stick. The puck rolled along the goal line and hit the post. The ref ruled "no goal" and the fans weren't very happy.
1:00: Michalek was tripped by Collins. Crosby was awarded a penalty shot (Group B was not too happy). The crowd went crazy in anticipation. Crosby sent a hard wrist shot off the mask of Modig.
0:00: The game ends with Group B taking a 1-0 decision on Letestu's goal.
Note: Cooke and Asham have looked good together, and seem to have some quick chemistry in all three zones. See what happens when you "hug it out."
