The Last Time The Pens Played Without Crosby and Malkin

Huge tweet by our boy Hooks Orpik:

The best thing about the NHL is that it has video from that fateful night. And the recap.

That is why we hate Mark Recchi, right there.

Not sure if the complete video even works, but that clip should be enough to drive the point home. Ouellet and Ryan Malone scored for the Pens. Then, surprise, the Pens blew the 2-0 lead and lost 7-2. Mark Recchi was a -3. Just saying. Not sure why Crosby missed this game. UPDATE: Crosby was sick.  Malkin wasn't in Pittsburgh yet. Unreal that it has been that long since a game took place without either being in the lineup.

Bad times
