Pens Points: Playing with Fire

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Oh goody. Just as the D was anointed the hockey version of the Steel Curtain, the 6-4 games are back. Poor Marc-Andre Fleury. Let's not send him to the shrink again after the season, eh boys? Here are your recaps:

PPG recap from Dave Molinari

Trib recap from Jason Mackey

Three impressions from the Pens staff

Recap with all the goal GIFs (and that's a lot of giffing) from Penguins Sauce

Post-game thoughts and player assessments from Pens Nation

Reuters recap from Shelly Anderson

With his assist on the Crosby goal, Geno Machino became the 4th player to record 700 career points with the Penguins. You know who the other 3 are. [Pro Hockey Talk]

Love Benjoy Ben Lovejoy made his Pittsburgh home debut. As he returned to Sleel City, he managed to get lost driving and locked out of Consol. Good times for #12. [Trib]

Johnny Boychuk receives a 7-year deal from the New York Islanders. Good for them. [USA Today]

Christian Ehrhoff was cleared to play but held out for precautionary reasons, and looks to be activated on Saturday against the Bruins. [PPG]

Latest on the playoff push: the Rangers and the Predators are watching nervously as the Bruins and the Kings are looking to grab the last spots in their respective conferences. [The Score]

It doesn't look like the Red Wings are heading in the right direction. They seemed sluggish and slow in the last couple of games, and were dropped at home by the Blue Jackets last night. [Detroit Free Press]

Nazem Kadri is the latest player in hot water over responsibility, punctuality and such. Here are stories about guys kicking in doors and being followed around by private investigators. [Sportsnet]

In all seriousness though, is Shanahan overreacting a bit with the whole punishment thing? I wish he was this unforgiving when it came to player safety. [Sportsnet]

Sabres are bidding farewell to their universally hated third jersey. These are still 500x better than those awful Lakers-wannabe outfits the Kings were wearing the other night. [USA Today]

Check out the ridiculous Derek MacKenzie goal last night. []

Elliotte Friedman's 30 Thoughts are up, and although he doesn't mention the Pens in this installment, it's still a worthy read. [Sportsnet]
