GAMEDAY 13: Do Better

PITTSBURGH PENGUINS VS WINNIPEG JETS

BELL MTS PLACE – WINNIPEG, CA

7:00 PM EST. AT&T SN PITTSBURGH

The early season back to backs just keep rolling along. The Pens lost last night, 2-1 in Minnesota, and HCMS was pretty pissed off.

The Pens have traditionally responded pretty well to early season, get your shit together, ass chewings from Sullivan. Safe to say tonight should at least be an inspired effort one would assume.

The NHL continues to give the Pens the middle finger though. The Jets were idle last night, meaning again the defending champs walk in on a back to back to face a ready and rested team. If the NHL was a halfway competent organization I would be pretty mad about this. But, it’s not so there’s no reason to get pissed off.

I mean we are talking about the same league who thought these were a good idea.

Lemieux-Hendricks-Dano

Morrissey-Trouba

Enstrom-Buff

Kulikov-Myers

Hellebuyck-Mason

Another weird schedule quirk, these two teams just played each other like a couple hours ago. Pens won 2-1.

The Jets are young and fast and generally pretty fun. Wheeler is underrated, Laine feels like if Patrick Kane were finnish and not gross. Big Buff is great, Ehlers is a fun little player. Hendricks is still an asshole though so there’s that at least.

Stat: On the 2nd half of back to backs this year the Pens are 0-3 and have been outscored 22-6.
