Penguins Notebook

Backchecking the Penguins: October 12th



Patric Hornqvist back in a big way for the Penguins!  Plus a quick look at todays game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.





Patric Hornqvist had an impressive return last night against the Capitals.  The Penguins had an impressive power play performance.  In fact all 3 goals were on the power play.  Patric Hornqvist had one of those goals, and also had an assist on another one.  With Patric Hornqvist back in the line up it appress that power play is firing all cylinders.  The Capitals give up a lot penalties and the Penguins were able to capitalize (pun intended) on it.

Kris Letting had his first goal of the season.  Patric Hornqvist and Bryan Rust had the assists on the goal.

Then there is this curious play by Braden Holtby.  This play caused a delay of game penalty.  It reminds me of a similar play from a while back.



Chris Kunitz speaks about facing the Penguins.  Sounds like he will be taking it easy on his old friends.  <- sarcasm.  Tampa Bays star defense men Victor Hedman speaks on the mindset of the team going into tonights game.


With back to back road games, Antti Niemi is expected to get his second starting shift in net.  The Penguins will rest Matt Murray.
