Pens nip Rangers 6-5 on Sid's deflection goal !!!!; Malkin re-evaluation tomorrow ?

Wow, what a hockey game.

On a goal by Sid that seemingly only the great ones get, with 3 seconds left in the game to boot, the Pens moved to 2-1 on the year after beating the Rangers 6-5.

Cap it off with the 1st NHL goals by both Jordan Staal (short-handed) and Kristopher Letang (power play), and it was an excellent road win for the Pens.

The power play finally starts to click for the Pens, going 4 for 9. While the penalty kill did give up a couple of goals tonight, overall the special teams did well again.

MAF gave up 5 goals, but in this guy's opinion, most of them he couldn't do much with. There was only one goal that I really considered soft, that being the dribbler that got behind him. He's still playing outstanding.

By the way, in addition to Bob Errey's pregame comment concerning Malkin being back in 7-10 days, the MSG announcers stated that Malkin's reevaluation is being moved up to tomorrow, and they repeated the contention that he'd be back in 7-10 days. So, we shall see.
