Pens Points: Full sized candy bars for trick or treat

It's all treats and no tricks for the Pittsburgh Penguins after a 3-0 win over the LA Kings

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome back to practice, Beau Bennett. [Post-Gazette]

And Jayson Megna is up until Bennett can return as the depth body at forward. Andrew Ebbett, we hardly knew ye. [Post-Gazette]

Paul Martin's future with the team seems unclear, in a contract year. From everything we've heard it sounds like the player is ready to move on, and with a pipeline of prospects, the team can probably absorb the loss if it comes to that. [PG-Molinari]

Pens too much for Kings. [Tribune Review]

Shutting out the champs is a true measuring stick win for the Pens. [Beaver County Times - Metzer]

And 3 impressions on the game from Penguins writer Sam Kasan and Pens assistant coach Gary Agnew. []

Justin Williams tangles with Evgeni Malkin in a battle of Conn Smythes. [Puck Daddy]

And Darryl Sutter making a classic Darryl Sutter face after the scrap. [The Pensblog]

Assistant coach Rick Tocchet wants Kris Letang to shoot more on the power play. Don't we all, Tocc, don't we all. [Trib]

The best a really good offense. [Trib - Rossi alert]

A Pittsburgh detective and his two adopted sons treated to a Pens game and suddenly it got all dusty in here. []

Thomas Vanek is tied up in a money laundering scheme. Not sure how this plays out, but never a good situation to be in. [Puck Daddy]

The Devils 18 game shootout losing streak is over, they finally won one. [TSN]

Congrats (?) to old "friend" Marian Hossa on career point 1,000 last night. []

In Nelson Muntz "HA-HA" fashion, your other Metropolitan scores: Steven Stamkos scores 2 goals and leads Tampa over the Flyers and the Islanders look more like the Islanders getting shutout 5-0 at home to Colorado.

The Flyers are hurting on D, so they signed Carlo Colaiacovo to help. That would be like if fire department pumper can't draw water, uses gas to fight fire. [Broad Street Hockey]

Alex Burrows puts a high, late hit on Alexei Emelin and, yep, that's gonna be a suspension. [Eyes on the Prize]

With all the injuries to Columbus, they might look for a trade to replace Nathan Horton and add a forward. But are they really going to bring in a name as big as mentioned here? Sounds ambitious. [Jackets Cannon]
