Live from development camp

Hey, Pens' Fans,

It's be awhile, but I'm here to watch the development camp scrimmage. Will try to keep this going through the scrimmage as well as get some pictures out to you. Please leave comments for me with questions or any thing you have to say or want to know. Who's ready for some hockey? Let's Go Pens!

The scrimmage is underway here. We are about 5 minutes in and I like what I see. Good fan turnout today. I would guess around 5000. Teams today are coach by Billy Guerin and Alain Nasreddine. 

Here is today's roster for you. 

Black team up 1-0 with a goal by Matia Marcantuoni. 

White team ties it up with a goal from Scott Wilson on the penalty shot. 1-1

FYI no pp today penalty shots instead  D'Augustino one earlier on from being tripped. 

End of one now doing a 6 player shoot out.  No one scores I the shoot out. 


2nd is underway

Garnet Hathaway scores on the penalty shot to make it 2-1 team white. 

Team black ties it at 2 with a goal from Dominik Uher. 

Seconds later Bryan  scores to make it 3-2 team white. Then jayson Megna scores to make it 4-2, right after that. 

Lots of scoring in a very short span. 

Goal from Jean-Sebastien Dea of team black. Score white 4 black 3. 

The puck rolled into the empty net toile it 5-3 black with less than a minute to goal. Goal is by Jayson Megna. 

Now, a six player shoot out to conclude the day. 
First shoot out was scoreless. In this one 
Jayson Megna and Dominik Uher both score. 

That's it

Bettman's Third Lockout

Hey Pens Fans,
As you are aware, the lockout is on. We heard the word lockout and suddenly have flash backs to theresa of seven years ago and the cancelled season or back even further to the shortened season of 94-95. In 18 years , we have had three lockouts. That is absurd. What other sport would stand for this? Should the first priority of the commissioner be to make sure the sport is played. Come on Bettman. How that man still has his job continues to astound me every day, but I digress... The focus needs to be on the lockout. Right now it is not as bad as it was 7 years agos. The side are not as ridiculously far apart. Last time the players made some huge concessions and anyone will say that the league obviously came out the winners. That's also part of the issue. Yes it's not as bad with the separation between sides, but the NHLPA is not budging much as of yet. Why should they? The league needs to make comprises and are asking for more and more and wanting less and less for the players. Right now only some preseason games are cancelled and we are from having to cancel or shorten the season yet, but that is what we thought last time too. Honestly, I don't think this time will be as bad. Again a major point of contention is the salary cap. I will have more details on what the issues are as the sides resume meeting. For now, keep the faith that the season won't be lost.

Hey Pens Fans,
I hate to be he bearer of bad news but it looks like another lockout is eminent. So far, this will only result in he cancellation of the preseason and hen it hinges on th coming weeks. I first came to you all during the last lockout trying to help spread the news of saving the season. It will be the same this time around if it comes down to it. Lockout watch is officially on...

Quick recap

The pens have had a pretty good go the last couple games. The whole league is buzzing with talks of Malkin's play with the returning MVP rumblings. Fleury has been strong in net and looking like he goalie we know and love. Its been a good couple games for him. Kunitz has been very strong the past couple games after being fairly silent for a bit. Nice to see him stepping it up a bit. Tomorrow is the unveiling of the Lemieux statue at noon and the Pens take on he Leafs at 7:30. Hoping to get you more live from the game.


Sid has been cleared for contact. No time table for return. Post on last 2 games to come later this evening.
Thank you for visiting Penshockey, please stop back.
