From the Point Too
Entries with the tag: arron asham
The Penguins’ morning skate produced some good news and some bad news… let’s start with the bad: Arron Asham suffered his second concussion in less than a year and will miss tonight’s game and beyond. Asham’s is just the latest in a long line of concussions that have afflicted this team this season. He joins a list that already featured: Sidney Crosby, Zbynek Michalek, Robert Bortuzzo, Tyler Kennedy, and Kris Letang.
Though the Penguins didn’t come away with the victory tonight they picked up a couple of small victories. First and foremost, they were able to pick up a point in a game in which they looked as if they were destined to lose. The second came in the form of how they picked up that point – two goals from James Neal.
Neal, who has been maligned to a certain extent by fans and media alike since his arrival in Pittsburgh last February due to his meager goal output, is quickly showing all involved that he is a pretty capable goal scorer.
