    As far as the defense, I'm not sure if their problem is the guys playing defense or the fact that defensemen jump into the play and often times end up below the goal line playing the puck leaving the Pens vulnerable on the back end, or a combination of both. Either way, something has to change, either philosophically or personnel wise. This team is not set up to play the way they did in 2016-17. Couple that with the sloppy play and turnovers and getting pinned in their own end for extended periods, and you get games like last night's.
    I’d chalk it up to the D men jumping into the play. Leaves an opportunity for the opposing team to have a break away. The Pens championship teams got away with it cause they were fast. Not to mention the team lacks a real strong forecheck. There is no speed for dump in chase. We’ve gotten slow up and down this roster. Sullivan needs to change the philosophy to a more puck possession oriented team. These guys play their best when they can cycle

    Problem with that is we built as finesse passing team, smurfs compared to most teams, lose the puck battles on the boards. Now that all teams are copying the speed offenses we don't have the D to hold up anymore, teams are beating us with stretch passes now. Don't have the muscle to fight in front of the net either.

    1-1 Pens and Ducks. Pens are on their 6th PP.

    Yeah 1/6 on the PP. The 5 on 3 was atrocious. This could be a long season.

    Tanev has good speed.

    Listening to Mike and Phil call the game, have NFL game on the tube with volume down. Switch over to NHL stream when the Pens score. Cold beer in glass. All's good.

    ZAR needs to go away. He hasn't been the same since Wilson broke his jaw

    You got to hear Mike and Phil when Murray had the puck somehow get in his jersey.

    Yeah, he’s fast.
    That Kahun break away was impressive speed too.
    Pens got it, can they piece it together though is the question

    Solid effort by the boys last night. Was the first game I actually got to watch this year that was more than a period or highlights. Murray looked rather tough and the Pens were just solid in front of him. I don't know how many wins they will get with the WBS guys, but they looked good. I am a little concerned that Sid is playing so many minutes. Hope he doesn't wear down.

    Sid is a beast.

    This is how they are going to win. They need to play solid defense in front of Murray. If not you get the other two games. Glad to beat a good team at home.

    Just caught the last few minutes of the 1st. They look to be playing spirited hockey with the new kids. Good to see

    They are playing really well right now. Sid with a goal and an asst. tonight. They need to be better on the penalty kill. The wild are 1-1 on the PP. 2-1 right now pens.
