The power play is still a comedy of errors, but the Pens stood tall on the PK, won face-offs and Marc-Andre Fleury was fleurying. Pens win in DC, and here are the three impressions with the keys to the win. [Penguins]

Kris Letang played in his 500th NHL game last night, which in and of itself isn't that big a deal but considering that less than 2 years ago in January 2014 he suffered a stroke, it is kind of a big deal. [Trib]

The Pens go right back to the grind tonight when they host their former coach and his new team, the Buffalo Sabres. Currently at the bottom of the Atlantic at 3-6-0, here's your official Sabres scouting report. [Pens Inside Scoop]

A weekend with PK Subban and a great video showing the fun, human side of the NHL's premier defenseman. PK Subban is the asbolute best. [VICE Sports]

October is "Hockey Fights Cancer" month, and last night the Capitals honored Andi Lambert, wife of coach Lane Lambert, who passed away in September. This is a story of one woman's courage while fighting cancer for 17 years and enduring more surgeries than one could count. [CSN MId-Atlantic]
