Lot of people on twitter saying he went to the hospital for dental work.  Hopefully that is it….

Geebus Oprik what were you shooting at?

That said, the Pens need to dump those alternate blue sweaters pronto; every time they wear them…

50 seconds into the video-

Looked to be already fluttering before it passed Boyes. I don’t think it touched him…

Guess I’m seeing a different video.  At 53 seconds, it looks like it hits Boyes to me.

I’m hearing an unconfirmed report that Sid is having his jaw repaired in surgery right now…  And looking at the super slo-mo, looked like it hit on the right-hand side of his mouth/jaw…..

.(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) Yep NEVER got deflected Orpik is just as Dumb as a Box of Rocks as he proved later in game by being out beyond the blueline looking for big Hit & taking a tripping Penalty while being SHed already because of the 5 minute major to Kunitz

Shelly Anderson’s recap on the PG says Crosby’s issues are probably dental, and the PG is loathe to make **** up like the Trib. Good news if true.

It is believed Crosby’s issues are dental, but there was no further information available.

teldar you are Blind as a bat too

the steigy and errey said it was deflected, but watching the replay it looks like it was just a horrible missfire by orpik.  either way, i am not surprised that evilpens hates another penguin.

Gonna agree with mrfluffy. Deflected or not, I don’t know what Orpik’s doing shooting a high slapshot in the direction he shot that. Or a high slapshot at all, really. If you ain’t gonna score on a shot from the point (and let’s face it, that’s going to be true of every slapshot Orpik ever takes), you never, ever want to shoot it high, for exactly this reason. This counts double for shots that are at the complete wrong angle to ever reach the net.
