  • Slapshot

    I didn’t think the hit on Havlat was that bad. The Hawks claim the puck wasn’t in the area but if you watch the replay it was within a few feet.

  • Clean hit. Bad call.

  • breakaway

    I think Winnipegers need to be wary of getting their hopes too high. I think they are just pawns being used soon to be sacrificed.

  • Calihockey

    Duhatschek point is a good one as I too see many similarities between this Pens team and the early 80’s Oilers.
