Pens Fall to Thrasers on the Road

Hey pens fans,
Tonight, the Pens lost to the Thrashers 4-1. Conklin was in net and stopped 16 of 20 shots. Whitney had the only goal (Christensen, Talbot). The Pens had 30 shots on the night. They played a fairly good game. With the injuries, I thought it was a good effort. One thing that is positive is that thtey never gave up and played until the bitter end. No one should be upset with their effort tonight.

I'm Back/Pens Fall to Flyers

Hey pens fans,
Well, I am back in the States after my few weeks in England. The Pens seem to have done well. The injuries are a bit of a blow. Crosby being out is going to hurt and Sid needs not to rush it. I had a very sismilar injury about 4 years ago and I did not do as I was told and my ankle is still a problem today.
Tonight, the Pens fell 4-3 to the Flyers. Malkin, Sykora, and Whitney had the goals. Laraque had a few great moments. It was a good game. We just fell short.
I will be leaving for Atlanta to attend the All Star Game. I will have full coverage when I return.

Away

Hey pens fans,
I am writing this as my last post before I leave. I am going on a trip to London for a few weeks for a class. I am leaving tomorrow and will not return until the 23rd. I will return a few days before the All-Star game and will travel to Atlanta to cover the game. I will post on all major happenings with the Pens upon my return. If anyone hears breaking news they want to share with other readers, please post it as a comment to this post. Let's Pens!

Pens Win Winter Classic!


Hey pens fans,



Well, the drive to Buffalo was definetly worth it. The Pens emerged victorious 2-1 in the shoot out. Conklin played an amazing game. The team, as a whole did, as well. The NHL should consider more outdoor games, but I think it should only be every five years or so. That will keep it special. I think if the league did this every year, it would lose some of its magic. Penguin fans travel. Interstates 79 and 90 were like a giant Penguin caravan. Every stop I made, I found Penguin fans along the enitre way. The way there was great with fans waving and showing Pens pride up the interstate. I would guess that there were about 15,000 Penguin fans at that game. That is impressive. The way home was a little dicey, at times. Many cars went off into ditches and hopefully all are okay. It wasn't quite the fun celebration down the initerstate I had ennvisioned. Below are some of my pictures from the game.
