Penguins 8, Flyers 2

Kick 'em when they're down. That's what those nasty Flyers would do to the Penguins if the situation were reversed. That's also just what the Penguins did tonight.

Sidney had his first hat trick (hard to believe he didn't have one of those yet), and Evgeni continued his goal scoring streak. In fact, pretty much everyone got in on the act (when you score 8 times, everyone does something good, I think).

Max Talbot continues to show that he doesn't want to return to Wilkes-Barre... ever!

Boy, the Flyers were b-a-d tonight. Watching Forsberg and Gagne collide pretty much explains how their season has been in a microcosm.

The Pens will now embark on a difficult three game West Coast trip, playing the Kings, Sharks and (don't call them Mighty) Ducks. If they can somehow come out of these three games with 3 points, I'll be willing to think they're for real.

Next up: at Los Angeles on Wednesday.

Watching Thorburn get the best of Hatcher was about the best thing I've seen all season!

1) Amazing that people still think Hatcher is a top 4 defenseman
2) this guy sucked in the old NHL. Now he's a skating pilon in the new NHL

I though Hatcher was a beast back when he played in Dallas because he could hook, slash, and cheap shot with the best of them, but now in the "new" NHL those kinds of D-men are out dated... just like Cairns.
