10 Games in a Row!

Wow what a game for the Pens!

Sid and Tanger make their returns. Of course Sid has been a very long waited return! It is nice to have our captain back on the ice.

Sid lines started things off with Cooke getting the first goal of the game.

It was a good game all around. Pens had some times were they were turning the puck over way to much in my opinion. That lead to the Rangers scoring two goals.

The Pens held strong and kept pressuring the Rangers. Bylsma started mixing up lines, which seem to frustrate the Rangers. Neal, Geno, and Kuni stayed the same, but everyone else moved around. I think Bylsma was trying to get a feel for where Sid would fit best.

Sid recorded an assist on Kuni's goal! He made a beautiful backhand pass to Kuni, who roofed on. He also won a big face-off which lead to Duper's goal!

Tanger also had a great night. He earned an assist and had a +5 rating, as he was on the ice for all the Pens goals.

Flower was solid in the net once again. Getting his 9 win in a row. He has been great in the net for the Pens and showing why is an elite goalie. Very underrated in the NHL. He is second in wins with 38 only one behind Rinne with 39.

Pens have a hard schedule going into the playoffs! Hopefully they can keep this streak alive and with a healthy roster gets more wins and move into the division lead. Time will tell. Pens take on the Devils on Saturday at 1pm.

Updates to follow tomorrow, as always
