Penguins still have a pulse


Shocking score in quite an entertaining series. It likely would be more entertaining if the Penguins were leading or even tied in their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series with the Philadelphia Flyers.

Unfortunately, they trail 3-1 after shellacking the Flyers 10-3 in Game 4.

Evgeni Malkin scored twice, Jordan Staal had a hat trick and the Penguins exploded on offense.

Marc-Andre Fleury played well in net, too -- at least after the first period.

It's just too bad this win, the first in the series if you haven't been paying attention, came in Game 4.

If this had happened in the first three games, then I'd give the Pens a shot to rally from 3-1 down.

It's nice they get to return home for Game 5. It'd be even better if they won it.

A nice 5-1 win, or even better, a shutout, would do wonders after a laugher like Wednesday.

At least the Pens aren't going down without a fight.

But I tell parents, you can have the right helmet, the perfect pads on, and still end up with a paraplegic kid. There’s no correcting it. There’s no helmet that’s going to correct it. There’s no teaching that’s going to correct it. It just comes down to it’s a physically violent game. Football players are in a car wreck every week.
