Pens 8, Devils 3

Not a typo. So, this was fun.

* Devils scored nine seconds into the game. We recovered.

* Seven Pens scored goals, including members of all four lines. (Downie scored his first as a Pen! Also: Adams!!) Twelve Pens got at least one point.

* Our power play was 3/7, and that's including the last one, which was played by the PP unit otherwise known as "the fourth line and bottom D pairing." (Announcers said Zach Sill was all grins when he came off the ice. Those were surely his first NHL PP minutes ever.) Sample sizes, regress to the mean, yada yada, but in the meantime our PP is sixteen percentage points ahead of the next PP in the league.

* And hey, our PK has killed of 18 in a row now, tying us for 12th! Not bad for a team that was worst in the league 4-5 games ago.

* All the goalies were bad. Flower was marginally less bad (0.842) than Schneider (pulled after second period, 0.783) and Clemmensen (0.700 - maybe should have left Schneider in, eh?). The difference was that our offense was having a heck of a lot more fun than theirs was.

* If we hadn't already passed the point of adding insult to injury, that final goal by Crosby on the breakaway surely did.

Kings on Thursday. I'd say they'll probably give us a harder time, but they've been losing to some pretty mediocre teams, so we shall see.
