Penguins prospects fall to Ottawa 4-1 - but not without a (six) fight(s)

Hopefully some clips will surface overnight.  Until then, special thanks to Peter from Silver Seven Sens for live updates throughout the broadcast.

Edit (11:38): Ottawa Sun has the recap (yes, 12 fighting majors handed out)

Once again the only Penguins goal came on a tip-in from a Robert Bortuzzo shot.  Not sure who received credit for the goal, but Peter believes Dustin Jeffrey may have been involved on the play.

Apparently this class of prospects is trying to get it done with their fists rather than their sticks.  In this game alone there were six fights, which combined with the video clips Seth provided on Empty Netters this morning makes for a rough total of 8-10 fights.  Fight total aside, they have only scored two goals in two games.

But let's be honest here.  You don't win the Cup with your best players still playing in the system.  That doesn't necessarily mean the Penguins have exhausted the farm, it just means that if the prospect Pens start winning games 6-1 or 4-1 we'd all be wondering why those scorers aren't playing for the big club. Given the fact that they aren't exactly lighting up the board (although they are putting a ton of shots on net), maybe this is an opportunity for coaches to see where certain players need work.  That's what this whole camp thing is all about.

In other words, no worries.

Besides, if you're stressing out over a prospect game you probably need therapy.
