I have three thoughts about Saturday's loss to the Minnesota Wild, and only three:
1) When Sidney Crosby is out of the lineup, you need to split up Staal and Malkin.
2) If the power play was "struggling" with Crosby, I'm not sure there is a word for what it's doing without him.
3) Add Cal Clutterbuck to the list of guys on GTOG's "Would love to see them in Pittsburgh" wish list. What a name. And he's dominating the league in hits the way Crosby is dominating in scoring.
The best thing you can say about the game is that Jordan Staal narrowly avoided another terrible injury. If you haven't watched it yet, just erase it from the DVR.
