Pens Points: Fleury's Play Not Enough

New, comments

Your daily look at Pittsburgh Penguins and NHL news and stories.

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Marc-Andre Fleury allowed two goals on 32 shots, one on a breakaway, the other on a 5-on-3. He stopped everything else, but it wasn't enough. Aside from actually scoring, I don't know what more he can do to support this team. Here are all the recaps from last night:

Three Impressions from Bill Guerin

Post-game thoughts from Pens Nation

Full recap with goal gifs from Penguins Sauce

Last night's game was disappointing because the Pens again let the opponent's dirty plays and the refs indifference take them off their game. Another coach, same struggle. [Hockey Buzz]

Count Todd Reirden surprised that Crosby and Malkin were separated on the power play. [Trib]

Christian Ehrhoff participated in game-day skate yesterday and is generally moving in the right direction, but the timing of his return to the lineup remains undetermined. [PPG]

Could Jeff Petry be one of the Pens trade targets? Mike Colligan explores. Another Oiler? Sure, why not. [The Hockey Writers]

Pekka Rinne was magnificent as well last night, but he also got plenty of those magical things called goals for. Predators remain atop the NHL. [On The Forecheck]

I forgot to include this yesterday, but Marc Methot and the Ottawa Senators have agreed on a 4-year extension. [USA Today]

One more story of "play well and hope to be traded" is playing out in Toronto, where many trade candidates are on display. [Canadian Press]

Datsyuk to the Devils, Perry to the Oilers, and other crazy NHL blockbusters that almost happened. [Grantland]

This Saturday, all surviving members of 1980's Miracle On Ice team will reunite in Lake Placid for the first time. They will also honor teammate Bob Suter, whose jersey will be raised to the rafters. NBC's Hockey Day In America will broadcast. [Sports Illustrated]

There were many tributes paid to Steve Montador, but this might be the most wonderful one yet, from long-time friend, the great Hayley Wickenheiser. [FB]
