Talk amongst yourselves: Crosby, Penguins top Rangers 5-2

29 Comments

The comments section is open. Go say what you think. No big whoop.

We’ll give you some topics:

—- Sidney Crosby moved around the lineup quite a bit, even though he played a big chunk of his time with Tyler Kennedy and Matt Cooke. Who would you play him with if you were the Pittsburgh Penguins?

—- Kris Letang’s return was a smash-hit, with an assist and a +5 rating while leading the Penguins in time on ice. Is he a top five defenseman in the NHL when healthy?

—- The Carl Hagelin-Brad Richards-Marian Gaborik line combined for two New York Rangers goals and six points combined. Are they becoming the most dangerous trio in the NHL? Could they be more dangerous than Pittsburgh’s current top line of Evgeni Malkin, James Neal and Chris Kunitz?

—- Crosby had an assist and a +3 rating in the game. Has he set the bar high enough that this was a disappointing performance?

—- The Penguins are now just four points behind the Rangers with a game in hand and one more contest left against New York. Will Pittsburgh take the Atlantic Division or could the Blueshirts hold on?

—- Obvious question alert: does this win convince you that the Penguins are “the team to beat” in the East? If not, which team holds that spot in your mind?

Now go, talk amongst yourselves.
