Jay Mckee is like a final boss in a '90s video game right now.
Nearly impossible to beat.
Mike Rupp is scoring like it's his job.
It is a good time to be alive.
It is still way too early to be sucking each other's jarg-ons, but with every win, the Pens are creating a cushion for the tough times that can befall a hockey team throughout a season.
As for this game, Tampa Bay thought it would be a good idea to give Steve Downie playing time.
Medics rushed to the Bolts' locker room to see if they could find a pulse on Vinny Lecavalier.
Sarge Gonch had another big night, and the Pens kind of just put it in cruise.
Dating back to when he returned in the regular season last year,
the Pens' record with Sergei Gonchar in the lineup is 25-5-1.
That is staggering.
What's even more staggering is that Malkin and Bing haven't even gotten hot yet.
