Not a bad game by Vokoun last evening. He made some stellar saves in urgent times. I don't think the second goal he allowed was his fault. The defense did not box out Josh Bailey in front of the net. Other than that I am pleased with Vokoun's play as of late.

Too bad Malkin and Letang are still out. Would love to see them return as soon as they can. It's great to see this team is holding down the fort while they are injured. Guys are stepping up and making plays. Sid has emerged as the best player in the league, MAF is shining. We're not taking as many stupid penalites as we did last year.

The next 4 or 5 are at home. It's time to re-establish to the league that we can win at home. I'd like to see this team start to play more comfortably there. It's inevitable we will have home ice advantage throughout the Eastern Conference playoffs if we keep up our winning ways. Definitely something great to have, and I think it's something the Penguins can benefit from.

Keep it goin' boys!

Interesting that Malkin is now on IR. I heard earlier this week he was skating with teammates. So it looks like he will not return as soon as I thought. Hmm. Might as well rest him up for the playoffs if that is what it takes. Hard to believe the Pens only have 16 games left.

Initially, I thought Letang's injury was worse than Geno's. Because I don't believe a timetable was given on Kris' injury.

Agree it was an ugly win. Seems like every time we play the Isles at NY we always go down early or trail. So glad we won't have to play in that building much longer... Pens have a pretty poor record there, anyway.

Haha, that's great. In a sense it's not difficult for a goalie to assist on an empty net goal. All they have to do is make a long pass that is well placed, like Vokoun did the other night, and scoring an EN goal is a possibility. Dupuis has 15 goals now. Wow. I believe team lead is Kunitz with 19.

I expect Flower back in net tonight. Dear Penguins, please play defense tonight. You will need to in order to win.

#Flyers say Briere has upper-body injury and won't play tonight

#Malkin and Letang out. Fleury will start.

#Penguins Kennedy will return to Pens' lineup tonight.

Dallas Stars forward Brenden Morrow has waived his no-trade clause to help his team complete a trade with Pittsburgh that sees the veteran sent to the Penguins.





He has spent his entire 12-year career with the Stars. In 835 career games he has 243 goals and 285 assists.

A member of Canada' Olympic Gold Medal-winning team in 2010, Brenden Morrow also has 78 career playoff games under his belt. He has 17 goals and 25 assists in the post-season

The Pens also receive a third-round draft pick in 2013 in exchange for prospect defenceman Joe Morrow and a fifth-round pick in 2013.

12-0!

OT is fine with me

8 games in a row allowing less that 3 goals - Fleury is playing solid....that and a patient Pens team is all it takes.

Sid is blazing

Pens are hot right now. This win streak is giving Malkin some much needed rest and recovery time. When he comes back ( and Letang ) this team will be scary good. I also hope that Brenden Morrow can bring some veteran leadership similar to what Billy Guerin did a few years back. Keep it up Pens.
