Still in catch-up mode here, but how huge is that goal right now. Without it, the Beloved could've been looking at a 5 game losing streak. I fucking love Staal. Remember a few years ago, he was the center a lot of Burghers wanted to trade for an upgrade at winger. At $4m / year, I don't believe he's the one you want to trade. What a bargain. One of the best defensive forwards in the NHL, and was a very worthy candidate for the Selke last year. Now he's finding his grove. It's a shame he's playing with a short deck, minus all the injured Pens.
But the 2-1 win over LA was a balls-out, guts-to-the-wall W over a team that's playing some great hockey right now. MAF came up big, once again. Every 2 points right now is sweet relief.
