Pens vs. Blackhawks; 3 Stars

The Pens were able to hold off an 8 minute Blackhawk barrage in the 3rd period to hang onto a 3-2 win at Consol tonight.  The Pens are now 2 games out of 1st in the division and I believe 3 games back in the East.  The Hawks, despite the loss, are still statistically the best team in hockey.  Tonights 3 stars Crown Royale style...


3. Viktor Stalberg - - this guy was a beast on the ice and if it wasn't for the posts, the game would have been 4-2 Hawks.  He deserves it.


2.  Marc-Andre Fleury - - Fleury, as usual, is a beast in net for the Pens.  He continues to dominate in the absence of many players due to injury.  Clearly the MVP of the team thus far.


1.  Evgeni Malkin - - He has definitely stepped it up in Crosby's absence.  He had 6 shots on goal and 3 assists to show for it.  He also took a high stick in the face which led to a 4:00 penalty, that eventually saw the game winner scored.

  1. I wish the Hawks would have showed up for the first 40 minutes. But the last 20 were some of the best they've played all year. Flower should be the 1st Star in my mind, he made some huge saves in the 3rd, but it's hard to argue with 3 assists from Geno.

    And I'm posting this live from the Hawks / Habs game and it feels so wrong that the Habs coach doesn't even speak French!!

  2. I thought that was a damn good game. Sure, the 'Hawks lost and were pretty flat the first period, but overall I thoroughly enjoyed the game.

    Also, I hope John Scott was able to wash Derek England's blood out of his jersey :P
