Chris Conner has been returned to WBS.
"(My shoulder) feels great... It's not sore, no pain. We'll see (Saturday) at the morning skate. Maybe I’ll be playing. (Saturday) is a big day for me. We'll see after practice how my shoulder feels and if it feels good then I'll play."

There is a scene in "Jurassic Park" where Dr. Grant, Tim, and Lex are rushing like balls to get off the electric fence before the power gets back on. Big-time drama. Dr. Grant and Lex make it, but Tim gets fried.
Dr. Grant then proceeds to give him mouth-to-mouth. Tim comes back to life.
What does this have to do with where the Pens are right now? Nothing. We just have always thought that the relationship between Dr. Grant and Tim would have been grounds for some big-time investigation if it happened in today's world. In 1993, it was fine to give mouth-to-mouth to a little boy. But now people would be asking if Dr. Grant maybe stayed down a little too long. Maybe he enjoyed it a little too much. Fact.
Think about it.
You'll never watch the movie the same way again.
Trust us. We watch the movie twice a week at least.
Too close, man.
We are far from professional writers. We're not even professional bloggers. We ask people to send us pictures of Sidney Crosby peeing on things. We just don't feel like talking about the Pens right now. We should be doing the same old bridge-jumping, highs-and-lows stuff right now. We don't feel like it. We don't have a reputation to protect. We've been around long enough for people not to accuse us of being the ever-feared fairweather/bandwagon fan. It's friggen November. And the Pens suck right now. If you feel slighted, lick us. Or lick Tim.
No clue what to even talk about right now. We aren't gonna force mundane analysis about an NHL team that is duct-taped together right now. There's too many injuries affecting the lineup to even think this current losing streak means something. It doesn't. Who cares.
Actually, our apathy toward the Pens is centered around Chris Bourque. New rule: We aren't recapping a game until Bourque scores, retires, or is sent to the minors. Being a healthy scratch is not part of the negotiation. Yeah, he had an assist in this one, but even a broken clock is right twice a day. Wide open net. wtf.
Geno could come back Saturday. This would make it the best weekend since Jesus came back.
At 6:45 of the third Kunitz dropped a "Oh F*ck." Some needs to get that one on YouTube.
Dating back to '07-'08, including this season, the Pens are 15-15 in November. Whatever that means.
New Jersey's system is flawless right now.
Watched entirely too many Devil games in our lifetime.
Crosby hit two posts on the same powerplay. PP is 0-27 without Geno
Eric Godard did play:
3:26? That is rough.
Lovejoy kicked a puck in his own net. Tough break. Defense did what it could. Thought Engyylllyyanland had a good game again.
Keven Veilleux is a monster.

You can submit questions via the discussion tab for the Crash the Net segments or Penguins Hotline after the game.
Back at home.
The parade of injuries continues.
Brooks Oprik will miss two weeks of action.
The Penguins website has put together a handy chart to keep track of the wounded:
That leaves us with one defenseman (Mark Eaton) who played in game seven against Detroit.
Ben Lovejoy has been called up from WBS.
The Devils still haven't lost on the road.
People are already suggesting that Brodeur could tie the shutout record tonight, since the Penguins are having trouble scoring goals.

After the jump.
Engage yourself in the photoshop expo.
Kneel down before the work of the PSers.

Now that the absolutely unthinkable has happened and the Penguins have gone over two games without scoring a goal, the Internet has exploded with "Crosby Sucks" comments and demands that the Penguins make a trade before everything falls apart.
But the reaction around the web is to be expected.
The world loves watching the Pittsburgh Penguins struggle, no matter how brief or unimportant the struggles may be.
Remember last year, when people were calling for the Penguins to trade Sidney Crosby?
Remember the glee around the Internet when the Pens sat out of a playoff spot in February?
Of course, now that the Penguins have lost a couple of games, the Crosby love comes out in the comments of almost every major hockey website.
A few of our favorites after the jump:
Haven't seen this anywhere else.
The league is the SPHL. The team is Louisiana Ice Gators. The coach's name is Brent Sapergia.
Kind of reminds us of a wrestler leaving the arena. How pissed is that trainer dude?
According to to [OurSportsCentral] Sapergia has been suspended. But he is still the GM somehow.
Sapergia was unhappy with a call. No shit. He should try dealing with Bill McCreary on a nightly basis.
