Quick Observations from the Game
-Penguins are in 1st place for the first time since late November of 2002.
-Evgeni Malkin = Lemieux Esque.
-The Penguins found their top flight winger they have been seeking: His name is Evgeni Malkin
– The 4th line of Thorburn – Talbot – Ruutu was very effective.
– Leclair and Recchi are playing better every game in their established roles.
– Nils Ekman created offense for his line mates and was rewarded with a 2pt night
– When Crosby and Malkin combine for over 4+ points, it’s going to be a automatic ‘W’
– Jordan Staal proved once again why he deserves to stay in the NHL.

Rumor alert: The Buzzontheburgh has learned that the Penguins are talking to a Western Conference team and a minor trade may be in the works between the ‘two’. More on this rumor and the team involved in the afternoon.
