Really, really love for Zatkoff to get that shutout. Did anyone else see him looking at the scoreboard over and over again like he was starstruck at the final buzzer? Awesome.

Can't wait to go to Columbus someday. Seems like a great arena, great area, and good fans

2 days late but just a few thoughts:
- maybe one of Maata's worst games and yet it isn't a shutout if he doesn't get his skate to the post on the wraparound. He is just going to keep improving so the thought of the Pens sending him anywhere but with the main club grows dumber by the day.
- not understanding the love for Jeffrey or Orpik. Both played games you would expect any pro to play and now we have to feel good about them? Reality is, once Bennett, Neal and Kobasew return, I don't see Jeffrey doing anything more than deciding what suit to wear to the press box each night.
- Speaking of returns, what exactly are the Pens going to do if everyone actually starts to get healthy? Would they consider the unthinkable and actually sit Adams? I think DB would sit Crosby before Adams. :)

So Megna's nickname is Megnito now, as he seems to kind of just attract the puck?

Happy this team is 11-4 without being 100% healthy.

Didn't they say that Megna preferred "Flaming Hot Megna"? (which I'm sure is an LGP'er given name as I know I saw it on LGP gamechat one day).

While I am rooting for Megna, and I think he's got upside, Neal will replace him in a heartbeat once he returns, so I'm not going to rush out and get Megnito on a jersey.

In a game where its a defensive struggle, anything you get from Jeffrey, and that goal was definitely started by his "uncharacteristic play". So while I don't agree that there are piles of love here for him, I do give the man credit.

Usually takes me 3 hours. It is a great area. Stayed at the Crowne Plaza a couple of times for Pens games and at the Hyatt Regency for Pearl Jam. Both are nice and within walking distance to the arena district. Having the bars and restaurants so close to the arena provides for a festive atmosphere before and after the game.

Bill Guerin gave him that nick name last year in WBS.

I wonder if Blysma will start to get Megna into the PK rotation.

Megnafying - Glass would be a great combo.

So I decided to look through the pictures on my phone from the game. Which one of you jabronis was in the Gumby costume?
