With guys who bite people and smack their own teammates in the face with their stick? Sorry, I'll stick with the Pens. LoL. I can't say too much cause I'm a noob but I'm learning some things here and there.

I'm streaming the game right now. If anyone else is interested:

PENS WIN IN OT 4-3!!!! James Neal with the game winning goal. Good back and forth game. Pens looked a little flat at some points but they came up big when they needed to the most.

Very slow effort considering Canes on a 7 game losing streak.
Crosby shuffles to Neal 3-4 times, finally gets the game winner.
Any how Fluery gets his 500 game....

Fluery definitey kept the Pens in the game. They gave up a few points but the Canes were spending a ton of time in the Pens zone and getting a lot of shots off.

Pittsburgh has a tendency to relinquish the lead late in games. It happened Friday night and on other occasions throughout the season. Yeah they still won, but it would be great to see this team develop an iron grip on 1 or 2 goal leads late in the game (or in the third period). I think that is an aspect of the game that strong defensive teams control like Boston, the NY Rangers, among others. Part of my thinking is their style of play: Pittsburgh likes to score, score, score. Concentrating much of puck control on going up and down the ice kind of takes away from defense. We've seen this team get burned doing that. i.e. versus the Islanders at CONSOL earlier in the season. Maybe when the defense is fully healthy the team will focus on this a little more.

It would be nice to see a Pens team that's healthy. It's obvious the injuries are causing some struggles.

With key injuries Balyma has to adjust the D and all the line shifts at bad timing is why we have trouble with Rangers, Boston Ect.

That's the thing, the Penguins have played well without being fully healthy. A lot of their younger players have stepped in and it looks like they have not missed a beat. But I agree it would be great for the team to have the quantity of injuries decrease relatively soon. They will need it.

Yeah I supposed you're not in 1st Place in the Metropolitan divison without everyone playing pretty well. It'd just be scary to think how good they'd be at full health.
