Jeff Zatkoff had his first statement game as a Penguin. On Wednesday, he came into the game after Fleury was pulled and played well. Tonight he made 39 saves on 40 shots and looked very comfortable.
The Penguins scored 2 early goals. I did not see them, as I was watching the chaos that was the ending of the Alabama-Auburn football game. A power play goal by Chris Kunitz and a goal by Joe Vitale gave the Penguins the lead.
Too Strong Moment: This penalty on Sidney Crosby was called 'interference.'
I call it 'being too strong and outworking your opponent.'
End to End Moment: Evgeni Malkin went end to end and scored a beautiful goal.
Disallowed Moment: Brad Boyes had a goal disallowed, having ruled that it was kicked into the net.
Not sure I agree with the call, but I won't complain.
Using Your Head Moment: Chris Conner blocked a shot with his head.
This is the most work Chris Conner has done in a Penguins jersey in years.
Simon Despres has been great since being called up. Playing very responsibly.
Great game by Jeff Zatkoff. 39 saves.
4 points tonight for Malkin. Ho hum.
Crosby and Malkin #1 and #2 in the NHL in points at the moment.
Not really an exciting game. Happy to see the Pens sweep the road trip though, seeing as they have a tendency to play badly when in Florida.
The Pens will have the next two nights off before heading to New York to face the Islanders on Tuesday.
