Is there a Dumoulin timetable? I'm asking for Kris Letang, who is marking the days on the wall of his prison cell, playing with Johnson.

For how good of a shot McCann has, he sure does shoot it right into the bellies and pads of goaltenders a bunch.

Things you see or hear rarely at a Pens game-Brett Keisel clean shaven and Max Talbot announcing the Pens goal over the PA.

Riikola has a cannon. Didn’t go in but even Price was like “damn”.

Zucker with his first as a Birdie.
Nice play on the blue line by Simon

Dude makes the play at the blue line, great drop to Crosby and charges hard to the net.

What more can you ask for on that play?

Talk about sinking the choke back on the neck after the Habs cut the lead in half with less than minute.

Am I out of my mind to think that Lafferty might have the best snap shot on the team? Did you see that one that just went up into the netting?

GMJR really wanted Zucker for a while, because like Tanev, system fit. GM and coach are on the same page last 16 months.

I got a feeling...

Can’t agree more. It’s two games in, but watching a ton of Zucker highlights he is built to be on this team. I think he’s going to be a Penguin for years to come and will have a lot of success here. Almost like a version of Kessel.

Can you imagine this roster with Dumo and Guentzel in the line up? Dumo will be back soon and so will Kahun. This team is deep.

This is what I like. That was a hockey trade.

They had a feature yesterday on NHL.com about the Pens making more trades. The 'experts' said the way the team is made up another trade is not necessary because each of them thought the Pens are a favorite to win the cup. Not trying to get ahead of myself but I was surprised they were thought of that well.
The only thing needed according to the group was a little D depth.
