Sharks 5, Penguins 0

So what happened?
Right from the start, this was not a good night for the Pens. Rupp was tripped on a scoring chance in the slot about 20 seconds in with no call. It didn't get any better from there. Before all was said and done, Fleury was pulled, Letang was hurt and the Pens had lost two straight for the first time under Dan Bylsma.

Who scored?

Any surprises?
The Pens had several good chances in the early-going, but couldn't cash in. I guess we can't call that a surprise given their recent mini-slump.

Any change in the standings?
Division: 1st (two point ahead of New Jersey)
Conference: 1st (tied with Washington)
League: 2nd (tied with Washington)

Who's next?
Back east to play the team with the worst power play in the NHL, the Boston Bruins. Game is on Tuesday night.

  • The Sharks are really good, but it's just the regular season.
  • When Fleury was pulled, you were thinking that maybe if they could find a way to get a goal... but then Johnson allowed one and you knew that was it.
  • Hopefully Letang isn't badly hurt.
