Pens Points: Bruins Game Day

Daily source of Pittsburgh Penguins and NHL news and stories.

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning one and all,

With Bennett and Fleury on the shelf, the Pens have recalled Matt Murray, Conor Sheary and Kevin Porter from Wilkes-Barre. [PPG]

The Bruins look to take advantage of the injury-depleted Pens. Here's your game preview. [CBS Sports]

A fair number of Elliotte Friedman's 30 thoughts are related to the Pens. Lots of things about the Jets and Byfuglien, Ladd and Trouba asking a combined $152M. [Sportsnet]

Geno has made it into the mainstream media. It is such a shame he doesn't speak English more fluently because then we'd have the best interviews ever. [GQ]

Trevor Daley felt he was never really given a chance with the Blackhawks, and the blueliner has actually requested a trade out of Chicago. [Second City Hockey]

Rob Scuderi made his Blackhawks debut last night and it was glorious. Skate at 10 mph, get hemmed in your own end, ice the puck, screen the goalie, rinse, repeat. Hawks got shut out by Avs and a certain scoring streak mercifully ended. [NBC Sports]

The state of the Penguins and their fans has never been described so aptly. Mainly miserable, easy to please for one night only. Great stuff by SG. [Sporting News]

James Neal was at his dimwitted best last night, delivering a blow to Mark Giordano's head while skating to the bench. His well-timed penalty set up a long 5-on-3 with the Preds up 1-0. Flames won their 6th straight. [YouTube]

Stamkos was in Toronto last night and it was a circus. And here is the most hilarious FA recruitment video ever made aimed at no one in particular. [Sportsnet]

For the end, we go back down the memory lane to that time a weird NHL free agency loophole produced a series of bizarre trades. [Down Goes Brown]
