And their offense hasn't been all that great all year, except on the power play. And with Mario out, their power play isn't working because Mario IS their power play. For example, they went 0 for 7 on the power play against my Bruins on Thursday.

So, in summary, they aren't producing 5 on 5 and can't get the job done on the power play without Mario. Don't ask me why this is. They have some other players there that should be getting the job done, but it ain't happening without Mario.

ARRRGH Between not having a team to watch, not seeing the Pens and seeing several of the teams I despise do well, this is not a good hockey season.

If you have digital cable, some services carry a bulk of the hockey games. I think at least one satellite system does too. Luckily I'm in a major hockey area and in the same one as my team, so I get my fix without having to dig too much.

Direct TV has the NHL Center Ice package. It's great - almost every game is aired.

Yes, I just can't afford the sports packages. I am a lowly state of Florida employee and while I have DirecTV the sports packages are a luxury. I would much prefer to have my ECHL team back

I agree-----add to this mediocre goaltending and the Pens are lucky to still be in a position to be fighting for a playoff spot!

Mario is hit and miss. The Pens are really hurting with the loss of Alexi Morozov; he was on a tear. Now they're shopping Alexi Kovalev and it looks like that'll be about it for this year.
