Final thoughts from Detroit
I’ve been to a lot of games in my lifetime but last night’s Penguins 7-6 win over the Red Wings is near the top. Great up and down action that saw the Penguins come back from 5-2 and 6-4 deficits.
Jordan Staal broke out of his offensive slump scoring three goals and 1 assist. Last night was the best hockey I’ve seen Staal play since his rookie year. He was skating with confidence and was a force in the offensive zone especially in front of the net. Staal set up Ruslan Fedotenko for the game winner in overtime.
Michel Therrien had a lot of line combinations throughout the game
Those are the lines Therrien will likely go with against the Flyers Thursday night.
The Latest on Brendan Shanahan

Whispers that the Penguins made a no risk offer to Shanahan worth close to 700k for the season. Penguins sources are denying it but that’s a rumor out there. Shanahan has a few offers in the $1.4 million range.
