Hurricanes 5, Penguins 1

Out-shot.

Out-hit.

Out-played.

Out-hustled.

Out-worked.

Out-scored.

Just out.

The Pens didn't have it from the get-go tonight against the defending Stanley Cup champions. That's going to happen to this team from time to time. What really stinks is that they couldn't generate enough offense to score more than once on their 8 or 9 power play chances. I know that Ward was playing well, but still... this team just isn't on track yet with the offense. They weren't on track with much of anything tonight. I'm not sure what else to say about it.

Wasted opportunity.

They looked like they did most of last year. I actually thought they were going to come back when they were down 3-1 and got a 5-3 PP, but I was terribly wrong. I don't know if it was the type of D Carolina was throwing at them or what but a very lame game to watch. Even Army's hit ended up feeding Carolina instead of the Pens. Anyone hear if that dude was ok? Last I heard he was moving hands and feet.

1) We agree that these kind of games will happen fro time to time with a young squad
2) The Hurricane were about due to turn it up a notch, and the Pens became the 'innocent' victims
3) we look forward to seeing what a difference the addition of Malkin brings!
