The surprise was that he kept Recchi with that unit. Therrien's respect for a pro's pro is admirable, but the Penguins need more than Recchi is giving them in such a key spot. Crosby is too fabulous as a playmaker for a winger not to score a goal or two with him.
That move had me shaking my head yesterday. You take him off the first line which I completely agreed with yet you keep him on the #1 PP unit. Roberts as least parks himself in front of the net. Granted, Roberts is bigger than Recchi but that's no excuse to not go to the net and make hell in front of the goalie.

The respect and admiration for Recchi is cute, but it's not going to win you games come playoff time. Therrien shook up the lines yesterday, he could have done so by just moving Recchi, not the Roberts-Talbot-Armstrong line which has played great. But we don't want to make it look like the decision was made purely because Recchi is conking out come late March.

IMO, Therrien went a little overboard with the line changes. While I stated I wanted a big shake up, I didn't want the whole damn line-up overhauled. My big shake up simply meant taking off a veteran who was never pulled from that first line for the last 15 games and simply replacing him with another player (Staal, Christensen).

Once again, thank you Ron Cook. It's good to hear somebody speaking up and not simply sitting back and making excuses for this team. I strongly doubt Therrien, Shero and every player on that roster are making excuses for this teams scoring problems. It would be a completely different story if they did not have the talent to net goals. But they do and that's what makes this whole situation frustrating.

Now let's break out of this little slump against Boston.

Who needs full strength? Let's play power play hockey. Honestly. almost the entire first period was played Short handed on both sides. But the Penguins must know how to actually play on Power Plays. They're 3 for 3 today and up 3-0 at the Intermission.

Sid the Kid makes it 5-0 Pens with 8 minutes left! I think it's safe to say this one is in the bag! We will be officially tied with NJ for the lead in the Atlantic Division (though technically, NJ would win the tiebreaker if it came down to that).

Great work by the line of Ruutu, Talbot and Laraque in the waning minutes to keep the puck in the Bruins' end!

WAY TO GO PENS!!!!!

Well, I have nothing to say, except I swear that all I was doing was showing concern over the team's scoring problems. It was nice to see/hear the team finally break out of their slump in a big way, and I hope it continues!

It's good to see they can get this kind of game.

Great game by the Pens. Crosby also adds to his lead in the points race.
