Sidney Crosby undresses Marc-Andre Fleury in shootout, coach Bylsma stoned by Flower

I attended Thursday’s practice. Pens seemed to be in a good spot. Hundreds of elementary students attended the workout and an hour-long din ensued. Evgeni Malkin showed no signs of injury. The suspended James Neal took part in practice. Fans loved Marc-Andre Fleury’s antics in the shootout. Coach Bylsma and his assistants even tried beating Fleury in the shootout.

Rookie blueliner, Brian Dumoulin, skates at practice Thursday. He hasn’t yet debuted for the Pens but is working hard in the event he does. Big body, would like to see what he’s got.

Kris Letang has two goals and six points in his last seven games. What’s encouraging, at least at the offensive end of the zone, is Letang’s 31 shots in his last 10.

Evgeni Malkin was a blur in practice. Didn’t hear what kept him out two games but wouldn’t be surprised to hear he tweaked one of his knees.

Bylsma shoots it off Fleury’s pad and is denied. Trust me. Bylsma would beat Flower with another attempt, leading Fleury to throw his stick straight up in the air.
