PITTSBURGH — Dominik Simon darted towards the net and snapped a hard wrist shot over the blocker of Philadelphia Flyers goalie Brian Elliott. Simon had a three-point game, and the tally was Simon’s second this season. The young Pittsburgh Penguins winger from the Czech Republic already has nine points (2g, 7a) in 13 games.
Tuesday night, the Penguins 2015 fifth-round draft pick was one of the stars of the show as the Penguins beat the hated Philadelphia Flyers, 7-1. Before the game was put away and Philadelphia was left hapless, Simon scored a goal and set up Sidney Crosby for another.
Simon isn’t one for many words or amusing stories. There is s still a little bit of a language barrier for Simon, but he spoke to a few reporters after the game, including PHN.
