Pens Win

Final score Pens 5 Toronto 4

Pens and Toronto

Well, wednesday was a good game with the Pens winning over the Leafs. The game was a bit heated, but it was good. I don't really have anything to make note of, though I know my post is a bit late.

Currently, the Pens are tied with the Leafs late in the third at 4-4.

Also, earlier Kennedy was signed to a 2 year extension.

More later...

Pens Lose Preseason Game Vs Tampa 4-3 in a Shootout

Well, the Pens seemed to be off to a great start taking an early lead. We then started to fall behind. Two of the Tampa goals were a bit shaky and I think the changes in the goaltendin equipment are a factor. Gonchar took one heck of a hit and left in the first. Hopefully, it is not serious. Beech got 5 for boarding and a gae misconduct late in the game. It was a preseason game that was far more intense than the usual level of play. I did like the way Satan fit into the powerplay. That is going to be key later on. All in all it was a strong game and far more intense than I expected. It looks like it is going to be a good year...

Town Meeting

Sorry, for such the delay in my posts, but I lost power Sunday night and just got it back yesterday evening.

I attended the Town Meeting at the Arena yesterday. The stuff about the arena was all old news about the groundbreaking, for the most part. Shero is optimistic about the Penguins upcoming season.

The players that were there for the Q&A were, Crosby, Fleury, Talbot, Malkin, Whitney, and Orpik. The questions were previvously selected. Most focused on favorite playoff moments. Talbot's was Fleury fall going onto the icec in the finals. They talked about training and the upcoming season. It was all routine and fofr the most part answers that you would expect. It was still fun and worth going.

That's it for now. See everyone at the game tomorrow.

The Time has Come

Yes, the Penguins are back and the full training camp begins on 9/16. This week the Penguins made a classy move again this year by havivng the players deliver some of the season tickets. Sadly, UPS delivered mine. The team seems to be ready and in good spirits after the short summer, after our disappointing loss, which we must all put behind us. A new season brings many new possibilites. The losses of Ryan Malone, Gary Roberts, George Laraque and others will be felt, but with the guys coming up from the minors and the off-season acquisitons, the team seems to be set for another great season. Ryan Whitney's inability to begin the season following foot surgery will also be felt and as much as many complained about him and his game, many will realize the contributions he made. I will have updates throughout camp as things develop. Are we ready for some hockey? I know I am. Let's Go Pens!
Thank you for visiting Penshockey, please stop back.
