Goal oriented - 12-14-08

Written by Seth Rorabaugh on .

While the Penguins' 6-3 loss in Philadelphia was a lot less competitive than the score would indicate, it was a nine-goal game which is something you don't see a great deal of in the "new" NHL.

Primarily the reason for such potent offensive output was the collection of offensive talent on the ice. The Penguins' Jordan Staal and Philadelphia's Scott Hartnell each reached the 10-goal mark this season yesterday and joined four other double-digit goal scorers on each roster. That moved the Keystone State's teams into a tie with the San Jose Sharks for the most individual players with 10 or more goals on their roster:
