First, let's talk about last night's game. Even with all the snow and road issues in the area about 13,000 fans made to the igloo for the game, myself included. It was a good game. Kunitz had two goals and Malkin added pone to give tht Pens a 3-1 victory. Fleury played a solid game. There were definetly a few uniquie moments, but it all turned out well. I think that Adams played a pretty good game and he has been failry silent in his ice time recently. Orpik played an aggressive gamew, but he took a few penelties that were not something to be entirely pleased about. Dupuis played a few particulary impressive shifts, but unfortunetly he could not keep it up all game. The whole teamed really did seem to step-up. Kris Letang and Tyler Kennedy both played some very good hockey and worked hard on both ends of the ice. This was a game where there is very little negative and it is a great mommentum to carry into the remaining games until the Olympic break.
In trade news, the Pens traded defenseman, Nate Guenin to the Blues for defenseman Steve Wagner. Wagner is 6'1" and 25 years old. He will report to Wilkes-Barre.

Well, the past few days have been a bit hectic with all the snow. So, let me summarize the past few days. First, the Pens fell to Montreal. I will be honest with all the snow and issues caused by it I did not see any part of the game, at all. From what I have seen in clips and such since then I can't form a really good opinion, but I can say that it looks like that we made a fairly good effort. Now, the trip from there to DC was quite the trip for the guys: flying into Newark and bussing into DC and still being on I 95 outside Philly at 11:30 at night with a game at 12 the next day. I give them credit for playing such a good game. I expected the team to be completely drained. It was a tough game and I hate that we lost, but at least it was in OT and we got one point. The only thing that really angers me is that Ovechkin got the HT. Tomorrow, the Pens will be at home against the Islanders. It should be a good game and they have had a couple days to rest after the hectic weekend. It should be a good game. I hope everyone is able to make it to the game tomorrow, with the impending forecast. Drive Safe and Let's Go Pens! See you at the game...

Well, my post is a bit late, but that is better than nothing, right?
The Pens topped the Sabres 5-4 last night. Sid had a natural hat trick, in the game. This was a tough game game to win and leave it to Crosby to make a good show. The whole team played a solid game. I will say that on definetly one of the Sabres goals that Fleury probably should have had it, but he played well otherwise.
