- The Pens were out shot 46-22. That smacks of another lack of effort. They were dominated in shots all three periods, so it's not like they collapsed at any specific moment.
- Therrien seems to be willing to give them a pass right now, so it's tough to be too critical. He said that they were going through a rough stretch, and that losing so many player was catching up with them.
- Sabourin played pretty well, all things considered. The score could have been much worse. If you watch the embedded highlights, you can hear the Carolina announcers saying Sabu is known for a weak glove hand - I think that's the first I've heard that...
- Was the Laraque fight any good? I missed that part of the game.
Next up: A rare Sunday night game in Buffalo.
Here are the highlights
