Pens Points Monday: Should the Pens Call Up Despres?

Dilip Vishwanat

No word on the length of Paul Martin's injury, so, is it time to get Despres back from exile? Jagr and Brodeur play like it's 1999. Remembering Pelle Lindbergh.

Well, the Pens still lost but at least the game was close, so in theory we're going in the right direction. Here's a recap that also has a possession chart and many nuggets to chew over. [HockeyBuzz]

The Pens forward corps is returning to full health, and the lines are shaping up. No news yet on Paul Martin. Time to get Simon Despres back from exile? Sound off in the comments section. [PPG]

Jagr and Brodeur play like it's 1999. No kidding, with a beautiful goal against the Preds, Jags tallied his 1700th career point and now sits only 23 behind Mario, good for 7th all time. Just imagine if he hadn't gone to the KHL for three years... Marty Brodeur registered his second consecutive shutout, and has given up 2 goals on 80 shots over the last three games he played. Great, we play them on Saturday. Super. [Fire & Ice]

The NHL GMs are set to meet in Toronto tomorrow, and the future of fighting in hockey is in the crosshairs. [Globe & Mail]

He died in a horrific car crash on this day 28 years ago, but Pelle Lindbergh is still remembered by hockey fans everywhere, especially those who bleed orange & black. [THW]

Here are all your scores and recaps from last night. The Sharknado has quieted down considerably, so it seems. The Avs win again, and Ovi is not a happy camper. Canadians are excited to have their top 3 centers lead the league in scoring, but if they just focus on that, come Sochi that won't be enough. [NHL]
