Jussi Jokinen scored two goals and added an assist, Pascal Dupuis had a goal and two assists, and the Eastern-Conference leading Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 6-3 Thursday night.
Brett Connolly has extraordinary talent. But we can't help but wonder if he would have been better served in the Western -- and not National -- Hockey League last year. At some point, he'll be a first-line winger, but this year, he's destined for the third or fourth line. Or even some development time in the AHL. It could be another rough year for the sniper.
