Senators 4, Penguins 1

So what happened?
Two steps forward, one step back.

Tonight we saw signs that all may not be right yet with Marc-Andre Fleury's injured finger.

We also saw the Pens unable to apply consistent pressure in the offensive zone and turn the puck over too much.

All told, you'd have to call it a disappointing effort in front of the home crowd.

Who scored?
Malkin (19)

Any surprises?
The Pens inability to match the speed of the Senators. Of course, it doesn't help when Kunitz, Kennedy and Goligoski are sitting on the injured list.

Any change in the standings?
Not much...
Division: 2nd (three points behind New Jersey)
Conference: 4th (two points behind Buffalo)
League: 7th (one point behind Vancouver)

Who's next?
Another two day break before the Red Wings come to town.

  • The schedule really favors the Pens, who play just twice in the next 9 days. Hopefully the injured guys can get better in that time.
  • The face off results were unusual tonight in that Sid had an off night and the rest of the team did reasonably well.
  • McKee and Skoula out there together certainly don't seem very fast, do they?.
