    Boy, what a crappy call on the Pens during the overtime with the Debbies – has the league office stopped giving all the calls to Pittsburgh since Cindy is out of the lineup and Mario criticized them for not calling more penalties!?

    We beat Philadelphia by 1 + an empty net. Avery puts up another point, Boyle and Dubinsky both light the lamp.

  3. aw crap.
    just read from Gross
    that Kreider broke his jaw.
    hope it’s not really serious.
    maybe McCabe can give him some good advice

    here’s the quote:
    Also, word that Chris Kreider broke his jaw playing for Boston College tonight. Not sure how long he’ll be out but there’s a chance he’s played his last college game, if he decides to sign a contract with the Rangers this summer.

  4. How sweet was Zukes’ goal?!? That move he pulled in the corner to dodge the check was sick! (however, the guy he beat, Condra, is AHL-er) I am just hoping MZA builds confidence off of that and makes it consistently happen. Man, he is such a creative little player…and he CAN finish…
