Pens Fall to the Leafs

Hey pens fans,
Tonight the pens faced the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Mellon Arena for the 3,000 game in franchise history. The final score was 1-0. Marc-Andre Fleury played a solid game for the pens. It was an unusual game. At the end of the first period the pens had a goal disallowed, because time had run out. I am not saying the refs were wrong, but it was awful close. The power went out twice during the pens 5 minute penelty kill in the 2nd period. The rest of the 2nd period was played at the start of the 3rd. It was a heated game. It was quite odd, because there were probably just as many, if not more, Leafs fans at the game than Pens fans. It is not a good sign whe the chants of "Go Leafs Go!" drowns out the "Let's Go Pens!" The game winning goal was scored on a Penelty shot by Chad Kilger. The fact that the shot was awarded was questionable at best. I think we deserved a tripping penelty, but I did not see grounds for a shot. However, it is not my job to critique the officials, though in this case I disagree with their call.

Pens Beat Montreal

Hey pens fans,
The pens won last in Montreal Saturday night by a score of 5-4. The pens were up early with a 2-0 lead and just as fast it was 2-2. It was 5-4 by the emd of the game.

Pens Fall to Devils

Hey pens fans,
The Pens were in New Jersey tonight facing the Devils. Marc-Andre Fleury was in goal for the Pens and the Devils had Brodeur. The final score was 2-1 Devils. Rita had the Pens only goal tonight. It was a tight game and the Pens fought hard. The Pens play there next game on Saturday, in Montreal, agaist the Canadiens. The pens havee been playing well, as of late. So, this could be a good stretch to end the season, even though we have had no playoff hopes for a while now.

The pens scoring began a few second into the game with a goal by Crosby, who had 2 on the night. Hilbert, Armstrong, Ouellet and Malone had the rest of the Penguin goals. It was a great game to watch. They were not playing like the Penguins we are used to watching this season and that was a good thing. We played a solid 60 minutes of hockey.

I also have heard that Recchi has interst in him and there are a few teams that may want him, but no word on if the pens are actually willing to deal him. Philly may be involved in something with the pens but wat is hard to pin down. Too many people are saying too many different things.
