And, unfortunately, I turned out to be correct. Pens lose 3-2, blowing another 3rd period lead and really looked lethargic today. So their afternoon game woes continue. I suspect they will look much better tomorrow night against the Rags.

I was listening on the InterWeb, and early-on, the Ol' 2-Niner said the Penguins were really flying, then I was distracted with long-distance phone calls until the game was almost over:
what-happened?

The 2nd and 3rd periods happened, that's what. They were badly outplayed in the 3rd especially - were outshot 18-5 and were outhit by almost 3-1. They had a 5-on-3 PP and 4 minutes of PP time late in the 2nd and couldn't score to give them a 2-goal lead, and the Isles took control of the game after that.

Oh well, it was not their day today. If they're on their game, they smoke the Isles, but it is what it is. And with the Devils winning today, their lead is a single point in the Atlantic. Hope the Bolts do us a favor and beat the Rags tonight.

..... at the end of the 2nd period of play, the score is Tampa Bay 4 (Stamkos, Foster, Szczechura & Downie), New Rat City no-score (King Hank is chased after the 4th goal)

Awesome! Hopefully we'll be able to inflict some more pain on the Rags tomorrow night.

How about Stamkos, though? 16 goals already after scoring 23 in his rookie season, with most of those coming in the final 25 games of the season. And it looks like yet another game where VL4 doesn't show up on the score sheet. What the hell is going on with him?

Stamkos has improvement ahead of him, but he is quickly becoming the real-deal, with an extremely quick release & accurate shot:
working-out with Gary Roberts no-doubt helped his body, and mind.

Lecavalier is playing much better in recent weeks, much-more physical (when Avery came looking for him during a scrum, VL4 started throwing punches, gloves-on, first), but I don't think his mind-set & style mesh with Tocchet's idea of playing forward:
sometimes, VL4 wants to skate in circles on the perimeter and set-up a pretty play, where Tocchet wants the puck throw at the net, then everybody look for ugly goals, like Bugsy is getting, and finishing checks (which Lecavalier avoids at-times)

Tampa Bay is not a bad hockey team this year

From the Pens' website:

Quote:
The Pittsburgh Penguins have re-assigned defensemen Deryk Engelland and Ben Lovejoy to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League, it was announced by Executive Vice President and General Manager Ray Shero.

Engelland made his NHL debut Nov. 10 at Boston and recorded his first point (an assist) Nov. 16 vs. Anaheim. He posted two assists and 17 penalty minutes in nine games with Pittsburgh.

In eight games with Pittsburgh, Lovejoy collected three assists and a plus-5 rating. During his stint, Lovejoy saw action on the Penguins’ power-play and penalty-killing units while averaging nearly 18 minutes per game (17:53). Lovejoy notched his first career NHL point (an assist) Nov. 14 vs. Boston.
Well shit - I was hoping to see Skoula waived and Engelland kept up here. I liked Engelland's game a lot - physical, tough, reasonably solid in his own end and will fight. You can never have too many guys like that.

Anyway, the good news is that these moves mean that both Kris Letang and Alex Goligoski will be returning to the lineup tonight, leaving Jay McKee as the only defenseman still on IR.

EDIT: Just read on the Pens site that McKee hopes to return Monday night, which means we'd finally have our regular D corps together for the first time since October 20 when Gonchar got hurt. No word on Kunitz and Kennedy and when they will be back, though.

EDIT #2: TK is back in as well!
