The score wasn't pretty but atleast they showed emotion. They'll bounce back from this loss

Huge disappointment. Asham was lined up with Morrow to start the period and...they talked. Godard hit Morrow once and did nothing more. Nobody really said anything to Ott. What happened to all the second period fire? Coach's orders? What looked like a growing team-building experience just went away. The Penguins rolled over and got smashed by a weaker team. I'm not sure why the issue wasn't forced on Morrow, Ott, and the Stars, but in spite of the effort shown by Crosby and Letang, the team went to hands and knees and got sodomized. Lovely.

Slight edge Kennedy for being more active and good to see him take that fight against a bigger guy... Benn had just laid a nice hit on Malkin and someone needed to step up.

No way Letang should have been fighting.. he let his emotions get the best of him, but he never should have dropped the gloves... his hand is screwed up... I would have liked to see the fight with a healthy Letang, even though I think Morrow would have taken the win whether Letang was healthy or not.. but Letang is pretty scrappy.

Crosby edge/win... he was more active and landed more.. but not much. Nice to see him fight again...

Probably an edge Benn.. he seemed to have landed more(not by much), then tried to take Kunitz down but Kunitz was too strong and stayed up and landed a few to the body/back.

I caught that, too. I'm sure that helped fuel Crosby a bit during the scrap.

I never thought there would be 4 fights in a Pitt game and none involving Godard, Rupp, Adams, Engelland, Cooke, or Asham who were all dressed.

Weird.

especially godard.

morrow got some good punches on letang for sure. crosby definitely won. i thought kennedy won his fight against benn. benn won his second one though.

Letang looks like an uglier Tina Fey with a mexican beard......thats his name now, at least to me.

Tyler Kennedy vs Jamie Benn -Kennedy 100%
Tina Fey vs Brenden Morrow - Morrow raped Fey
Sidney Crosby vs Matt Niskanen - the kid did well
Chris Kunitz vs Jamie Benn - Benn

Yeah! Never seen that before, that was a first! Can't tell if it was tossed to him or if it just popped out and the stripes just happened to be at the right place there...pretty funny stuff.

Very interesting seeing an inter-coference game get rough like that, but still can't believe none of the usual suspects were involved - least of all Crosby. I think he socked Niskanen pretty good before they went down to the ice and thats a clear win for him, imo. Looked to me as if Niskanen underestimated Crosby's strength, he was getting rag dolled a little there....
