Good morning, we survived game one. The Penguins are taking a day off practice today, and after being hit 47 times by Columbus last night and with two days in between games, that will be a welcome decision for the players, I'm sure.
Game 1 looked different, in a good way. [Post-Gazette - Collier]
Moving Beau Bennett to play with Brandon Sutter was a really good adjustment. Bennett twice sprung Sutter right up the middle for great chances - one that could have been called a penalty shot (but wasn't) and another on which Sutter scored the eventual game winner. [PG]
More Bylsma praise: his strategy to have the Pens hit Jack Johnson at every possible chance (call it the Mike Green strategy) is putting money in the bank that will pay off later in the series. [Trib - Kovacevic]
Columbus was really, really physical last night. [Tribune Review]
Richards on the GWG "I’ve seen him make that save 1000 times. A thousand times. It’s one that got by him". And happily for the Pens, he didn't that time. [Pro Hockey Talk]
Montreal GM Marc Bergevin celebrating his team's OT goal last night is pretty fun. [Eyes on the Prize]
The selfie craze has gone too far and must be stopped. [PD]
