Pens Points: Home Stretch Awaits

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

The Pens have two days off before beginning the stretch of the last 16 games before the playoffs. [PPG]

Derrick Pouliot is here to stay and that's a great thing. How the young stud has emerged to carry the flag for youth on the blueline with Maatta sidelined with injury and Harrington and Dumoulin back in the AHL. [Trib]

The Pens are getting better defensively to be sure. I still think calling them the Steel Curtain is, um, a slight exaggeration. []

When will Matt Murray be ready? And where does he fit on the organizational goalie chart? [The PensNation]

PA Parenteau is kind of in a rut in Montreal. Would you like to free him from there and bring him to Pittsburgh? [Hockey Buzz]

People want to see more of Rangers and Islanders at the Coliseum. A playoff series would be great. Preferably in the first round. [NYDN]

A year after collapsing on the bench, Rich Peverley is trying to stay involved in the game. [Yahoo Sports]

The Los Angeles Kings create their own luck at the draft and keep getting rewarded for it. [THN]

Ondrej Pavelec gives up a game-winning goal from center ice. Yipes. [CBS Sports]

How would you feel if you got traded from a contender to the Leafs at the deadline? Three players who've been there were asked this question. [Canadian Press]

But hey if you have a daughter, get that kid to write letters! The daughters of the Toronto Maple Leafs are asking for their dads to be traded out of the "mapley hockey hell". Satire alert. [Sports Pickle]

Nazem Kadri could be the Leafs top line center next year. Instead, he also is trying to get shipped out of town. After being held out of the game for lateness, he gets to sit for two more games. [The Score]

And congratulations to New York Rangers' Jesper Fast on winning the coveted NHL Dive of the Year! [SB Nation]
