Pens come from behind and win. Again.

There seems to be a trend in Penguins games lately, and that's playing from behind. The Pens fell behind 1-0, and then 2-1. If you thought the Pens were done, then you haven't watched Pens' hockey lately. They ended up scoring four unanswered goals in the third period to beat the Sabers 5-2, including an empty netter by Jordan Staal that was set up by none other than Evgeni Malkin. Speaking of Geno, he now leads the league in scoring, passing Alex "I have a really big mouth" Semin who didn't play last night in Washington's loss. Geno also kept his point streak alive and is one game away from Mario's record. Geno is quite modest when it comes to his accomplishments and always giving credit to his teammates saying, "Thanks to my teammates, they pass to me and score on my passes." Like you wouldn't pass to Evgeni Malkin, league points leader. And like having someone of his caliber wouldn't make a decent hockey player look good. FSN had a few questions with Geno and if we can find it on YouTube, we'll be sure to pass it on. Between that accent and those facial expressions, it's quite magical. Even Paul Alexander said something along the lines of "I really enjoyed that, I'm not sure why." Because it was awesome, duh! We're finally seeing Geno's personality and it's a good one. ; )

There are a few players you wouldn't expect who are ready in case their number is called in a shootout.

Sean Leahy has reported on his blog that a Canadian media outlet is reporting that the Pens have traded Darryl Sydor to Dallas for Philippe Boucher. You can check out his post here.
