There was a pretty lousy Penguin game last night, unless 5-2 losses in Dallas are your thing.
Fortunately, we came away with one video clip for the archives, that of Sidney Crosby throwing down with Matt Niskanen at 12:33 of the second period, with the Pens firmly in a three-goal hole. It was one of four fights in the frisky game's first two periods, the main event of an undercard featuring Jamie Benn-Tyler Kennedy in the first period, Benn vs.Chris Kunitz in the second, and Brenden Morrow and Kris Letang later in the second. I never realized there was so much animosity between these two teams, but if it involves disliking Dallas for any reason, I'm on board.
The 6-6-1 Pens are back in action Friday night at 10 against 5-7-1 Anaheim.
