After lack-luster performances where the team looked like a disorganized bunch of ants, the Penguins came back and reminded their fans why they should keep cheering.
Evgeni Malkin got the Penguins on the board early, and even got physical with Marc Staal. It looks like “Geno” is starting to return to his MVP form of last year.
Tomas Vokoun performed….well…is there really a word? Maybe the closest one is fantastic. As was the case in recent years, the Penguins fans have started talking about whether or not the starting goalie job should go to someone other than Marc Andre Fleury. Not that they wouldn’t be right to question Fleury’s play. In the past years he has played terribly and given up some horrific goals.
If Vokoun can keep up his current play, look for No. 92 on the ice between the pipes while No. 29 takes a seat on the bench.
