The Pens traveled to sunny Florida last night to take on the Panthers. Both teams had a vomit inducing 1st period but somehow the Panthers were up 1-0 after it. Then the 2nd period happened. James Neal tied the game early in the 2nd. Then the Pens took about 3049287 penalties. The Panthers then found themselves up 4-1. The Panthers were like 4 for 8 on the power play last night or something like that. The Pens scored a power play goal too. They have scored a power play goal in 12 straight games. The Pens eventually mounted a comeback. Dustin Jeffrey, The Paul Martin Redemption Tour, and Chirs Kunitz all netted goals in the 3rd for the Pens to tie the game at 4 going into the 3rd. The Pens had a chance on the power play to take the lead but failed. After the power play was over Tomas freaking Fleischmann scored to make it 5-4. Tomas Kopecky netted an empty netter for a 6-4 final and a hat trick.

- Someone threw a rat on the ice. If that didn't make you sick to your stomach then turn in your fan card.
- Tomas Vokoun started in net for the Pens. He didn't get any help from his defense at all. Not much he could do on any of the Panthers goals.
- The Paul Martin Redemtion Tour rolls on. He had a goal and was a plus 3 in 27:33 of ice time. (Led the team).
- 2 point night for Best In The World.
- Best In The World-Neal-Kunitz line all had 2 points last night.
- Simon Despres was a scratch for some reason. Don't expect to see him or Bortuzzo much any more now that the Pens signed Mark Eaton.
- Good game from Dustin Jeffrey. He had a goal last night but when everyone is healthy he'll be the one that sits. Not Tyler Kennedy.
- Speaking of Tyler Kennedy. Last night may have been his worst game ever. He had an absolutely terrible give away and took an extremely stupid penalty that led to the Panthers 1st goal. Paul Bissonette only has 1 less point than TK and Biz has only played 12 games to TK's 20.
- Beau Bennett got an assist last night.
Jordan Staal and Carolina Thursday at 7.
