Dave Molinari is really good at what he does ! he has an incredibly dry Wit, but I don’t think he would tweeted that without knowing for a fact that was true, Not like it was Rob Rossi

also it took the Pens “Official” a half an hour after game started to tell Josh Yohe that, That was after all hell broke loose on twitter

I’m going to assume it’s his shoulder from the hit he took the other night.  If it was really sunburn, then I don’t even know what to say…

I went to the game in Tampa and the Pens were staying at our hotel. Malkin, Crosby, Murray and maybe another got in a cab to go out after coming back and changing. (We also saw these guys heading out as well: Fleury, Sutter, Adams, Glass, and a couple others.)  We saw them get on the bus the next morning and Malkin looked quite hungover and didn’t even remotely acknowledge the autograph seekers. The other guys seemed alright.
