This is Three Rivers Philosophizer - A weekly review of stuff that is going on in my brain... at least the stuff that has to do with hockey. If you don't like it, I don't blame you.



This Week In #FartNoise:

Predators @ Penguins 

 


It was Superbowl Sunday, but the big game was the Pens vs. the Preds.
After the Predators jumped to an early 2-0 lead, the bad news just kept coming.


The 2nd period was uneventful until the Preds scored again with only 40 seconds left to push their lead to 3-0.

By the time it was halfway through the 3rd period, when the Preds made it 4-0, the game was basically over.  This is a Pens team that is having major trouble scoring goals.  They are getting chances, but no puck luck.

Penguins @ Oilers

Advanced stats can't save us from the Pens not scoring.  After the 1st period it was still 0-0.
Malkin put the Pens on the board early in the 2nd, assisted by Letang:

Letang also assisted on the next Pens goal, a deflection off of Perron with .4 seconds left in the 2nd to make the score 2-0 Pens.

And so that streak bites the dust:
In the end it was all Pens.

Penguins @ Flames

During the 2nd period, with the score 2-0, Pascal Dupuis tweeted this about Sutter's goal:
For those who don't understand the meaning behind this, it's because last season RootSports broadcast a naked Sutter on live TV.  Forgive me for not sharing the picture as it's obviously NSFW.

The game, however, was an easy win for the Pens.
