That’s about as much an indication a player is mad about
losing, mad about the score, as you can get, without mind reading.

I’m glad McCann isn’t 250lbs and skating top speed, but that’s a
totally, almost cartoonishly gratuitous elbow to the head, and where Samheim is
puts him in danger of a double hit into the glass, which it looks like followed.

Gotta suspend the guy and make it more than a game or so.

What also stands out is:

Jarry is not off to a good start!

The Pens did some addition by subtraction on D, then followed it up with some
subtraction by addition, and made it a long-term investment.

Did moving out Kessel for very little help solve their chemistry? Did trading Hornqvist? Looks like: no and no. What if a team built around Crosby, Malkin, and Letang just isn’t good enough any more?

Do they have any high picks or top prospects these days?

Do they even make the playoffs? This could be an ugly decline in Pittsburgh.

That’ll show’em

Heated rivalries are great, but drop the gloves,
McCann, if you’re that po’ed.

Hard to think Philly won’t file this one away and look
for a chance to pay this back.
