Tonight the Penguins (6-2-0) look to make it six wins in a row when take on Ryan Reaves and the Las Vegas Golden Knights (5-3-0). Puck drop is set for 7pm from PPG Paints Arena.
Folks, I think the Penguins are good at hockey again. Honestly, with the way their roster is currently constructed, I have no idea how they continue to play this well but here we are. Last night, the Pens beat the Stars by a score of 4-2. Goals came from Jared McCann, Patric Hornqvist, and Kris Letang who scored twice, including the game winner which was absolutely beautiful. Matt Murray was pretty sharp. He made 22 saves, one of which he robbed Tyler Seguin who had a wide open net following a rebound that would have put Dallas up 2-0. With the loss last night, the Stars now sit at just 1-7-1 on the season lol. Yikes.
Looking ahead to tonight, the Penguins welcome the best goaltender to ever play the game, who smiles a lot and has a ton of charisma, Marc-Andre Fleury. I fully expect Tristan Jarry to start tonight opposite of MAF though because Mike Sullivan is soft and for whatever reason he doesn't like to play goalies in back-to-back games. The Golden Knights last played on Thursday, beating the Senators 3-2 in a shootout thanks to a Jonathan Marchessault goal. Vegas is always fun to watch and with the way the Penguins are currently playing, this should be a very good game.
Third jerseys tonight.
Mark Stone leads the Knights with 11 points on the year (5G, 6A). He's definitely pretty good.
Speaking of good, I know I can't say this because Murray lovers will get pissed but Marc-Andre Fleury is having a hell of a season. He's currently sitting at a .926 save percentage with a 2.46 goals against average.
Apparently some guy named Valentin Zykov was suspended 20 games for violating the league's performance enhancing substances program so that's fun.
I want to see Ryan Reaves fight tonight tbh, preferably Jack Johnson.
He beat the living piss out of Scott Sabourin the other day.
I was going through old gamedays and never ever forget when the Penguins had Derick Brassard LMFAO
The Penguins don't play in Vegas until January. We want to go but that costs money.
Looking forward to the social media misspellings "Flurry or Fluery" and "Reeves."
