Penguins Game 47 Recap - Devils 3, Penguins 2
-The game for the most part was a boring one. I mean Devils games usually aren't all that interesting but even though the Penguins got out to a 2-0 lead you never really had that feeling that anything was on the line. Actually nothing was on the line so I guess I feel OK thinking that.
-There is no reason to be concerned about this. Well, any time you blow a two goal lead there is something to be concerned about but when the Penguins 15 game win streak was snapped they lost a pair of games back-to-back so it's not like this hasn't happened before. The good thing about the season is that the Penguins haven't lose three games in a row so I feel pretty good that they are able to bounce back on Saturday night against Carolina. Other than that it wasn't all that eye opening to see them lose. Would have liked to see them keep their focus a little more but it is what it is.
-Marc-Andre Fleury was alright tonight but he wasn't as sharp as you would like him to be. I am one of the biggest defenders of him there are but the second goal he let up needs to be stopped. The game winner he couldn't do anything about as it was tipped off Brandon Sutter's stick but at this point I am nit picking a little bit. He played a pretty good game but you would like to see him shut down the third period and give the Penguins a win.
-Evgeni Malkin looked really good for the second consecutive day. The only thing he wasn't doing was finding the back of the net but he looked really good playing with Jarome Iginla and Pascal Dupuis.
-Jussi Jokinen scored another goal tonight. Dude has been unreal good.
-Kris Letang just makes the back end so good. The pass he made on the Jokinen goal won't get talked about but it was absolutely beautiful.
-Season finale on Saturday against Carolina. Then the playoffs. Wooo.
