  8. Juiiicy Jussi!!

  9. Test.


  10. Real nice period by Penguins to take what the Rangers were giving and not be too aggressive in the neutral zone.

    Fabulous goal because of the move to spin off the defenseman along the board behind the net and make the pass to a wide open Jokinen.

    2-0 Pens…. and Engelland isn’t on D.

  11. I enjoy 2-0 1st period leads. That is all.

  12. The blog atmosphere is awesome!!!!!

  13. JUicy Jussi X2!!!!

  14. SCIRE YET AGAIN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Lundquist beaten like a rented mule.

  15. Brian Gibbons…. on fiya

    3-0 Jokinen again.

  17. What is wrong with Maatta?

  18. Go gibby go

  19. SCIRE!!!!! Sidney!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. CROSBY SCIRE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  21. Pens are on fire!!!

  22. Well if Lucky was following along with the old 1-3-1, we just lost him.
    Oh ho ho ho State game just started.

  23. Flutter puck – that Crosby kid has some potential !

  24. Flower was in full bloom in the second. Kept ‘em under control until we got it together again.

  25. Penn Hills Cheerleaders are cheering at the Orange Bowl. My Alma Mater. Go Big Red. That is all.

  26. Maybe a bit early – but … 4-1 … don’t need to see a lot of Sid rest of the way..
    Injuries .. ya know….

  27. Kunie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  28. What a wild series of plays that was!
    KUNITZ !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And Lundquist is mad. :)

  29. Lundquist has given up three or more golds in nine of his last 10 games. And this is all after he signs his new big contract. He does not look Olympics ready. And it does not look like my Rangers are playoff worthy.

  30. Well this is not a good thing Crosby slugging it out with McDonough.

  31. I’m proud of Sid

  32. Pens keep on chuggin’, even with injuries, and new players.
    Fleury looked good, and I like this new top line.

    That is all. ;)

  33. PENS 5-2… nobody hurt … 2 points…
    Goodnight all yinz fultter-puckers word players … THAT is alll!!! :)

  34. Sweet Dreams everyone,

  35. Night all! Stay warm.
