Let’s go Pens

The Penguins got lucky on Monday night. They looked like crap except for a ten minute flurry in the first period which gave them enough of a cushion to survive playing lazy defense against a team that was jumping on the counter-attack.

So now that they stole a game that they really should not win, let’s see cheer them on tonight as they try to reduce their magic number to two.

    That hooking penalty on Malkin was pure horseshit.

    Pittsburgh can’t buy a faceoff win. It’s getting embarrassing.

    Yossi cross-checks a Penguin four times in a row, finally gets called, and chips his teeth at the official on his way to the box. Maybe these guys would rather be playing one of those games at the end of Rollerball.

    How did Guentzel trickle that goal in past Rinne?

    @geg6: IK,R? Guys are beating the shit out of each other with their sticks right in front of the officials.

    Pens break the tie in first 10 seconds of third period. Guentzel again.

    Grew up in Pittsburgh (though first years in MA so I don’t have the distinctive, much mocked and mostly exaggerated accent). Anyway, a lifelong Pirates, Steelers and Pens fan. Hell, I was even a Pittsburgh Rens fan in the crazy Civic Arena (Rens=Renaissance as in the city’s modern motto) . Haven’t lived in the city for many years (but periodically visit) so am watching this with interest (especially since the rest of my family car Caps fans as I live in the MD suburbs of DC).

    Kessel and Malkin score within 16 seconds. Rinne chased.

    OK now that the Pens are up two games will the commentators stop calling them the lesser team?
