Welcome back to your 2nd dose of weekend gameday. The gameday that like the vaccine makes you violently ill the 2nd time around. (Note: get the vaccines so I can go back to dive bars)
The Pens did the good bit again yesterday with another comeback win, beating the flyers 4-3. Evan Rodrigues hit the post on an empty netter and screwed me out of $108. He is now on official notice.
With the 2 points yesterday the Pens are inching closer to a top 4 spot in the insider trading division. Tied with the flyers (who have two games in hand) and just 3 points back of Washington (who take on the flyers today).
Tonight the Rangers come into town to complete a full weekend for the Pens. They beat the Devils yesterday.
This is an all star game of losers

Hard to imagine the Pens change it up much from yesterday.

The rags are without one of the most dangerous players in the east, winger Artemi Panarin because he’s feuding with the russian government I think? I don’t know it’s real weird. Shesterkin might not play either.
Chris Kreider is killing it.
With the 2-0 goal;
Ryan Strome scored his 7th goal and 16th point in 22 GP
Chris Kreider has scored 16 pts in 22 GP
Kaapo Kakko has scored 4 pts in 15 GP#NYR

Great chance to keep some good vibes rolling and get within a breath of a playoff spot. Gotta take advantage of any games against the rags but especially when they’re shorthanded.
