Pens lose to Florida, that's about all we have to say

By Finesse

The Florida Panthers. They evoke less passion from us than anyone in the league, except when it comes to the fact that their mere existence is ruining the possibility of an equitable realignment.  Even when the Pens came back from down 4-1 it was still blahh.  A few thoughts below.

Vokoun was shaky even if all the goals against him were on the power play ... Letang is maddening.  He goes from best player on the ice to doing something really dumb within a matter of seconds ... In fact, he might just be really dumb ... I dare you to tell Artistry that Dustin Jeffrey's goal was lucky and one that Theodore should definitely have stopped ... the Pens took 9 minor penalties ... Paul Martin was a +3.  He also has the same amount of points this season as Kris Letang ... Patrick Kane is 585th in the league in "Corsi" rating.  Tyler Kennedy is 245th.  Do you think we could get Chicago to also throw in a late round draft pick in the Kennedy for Kane trade? ... If you don't know what Corsi is, read this ... If Tanner Glass is going to use his ice time to contribute nothing but bad penalties, wouldn't it be better to give that ice time to (gasp) Zach Boychuk?  He hasn't shown much, but it might be helpful to have someone with some skill on the ice while Geno is out.

Pens go to Carolina on Thursday and then to Montreal on Saturday.

Artistry and I are going to be in Montreal on Saturday night for the game.  See the sidebar for details.  LGP.
