"Last time the Pens played in Vancouver, every time Crosby touched the puck, some select people in the crowd booed him. Why? Who knows, it's not like we have some hate on the Penguins or on Crosby. I hope people going to the game will have the respect just to enjoy a good game, but there are always a few dumb people at GM Place, so I won't hold my breath. Funny thing is, those same people will be cheering for Sid in less than a month's time at the Olympics."
Asked if he felt any extra pressure due to an inexperienced back-up, Curry said: “Not really. I'm not planning on using the back-up goalie.”
Pechurski has played well for the Russians in international tournaments, deploying a hybrid style that makes him very versatile as a netminder. Flexibility is his greatest asset, and he moves about the crease with unwavering ease. His future in Pittsburgh could never be more than as a backup to Marc-Andre Fleury, but he’s a very interesting player to keep an eye on. He has NHL-caliber talent, but there are several questions surrounding him. Foremost, he may or may not ever make it to North America from Russia.
Ungodly flexibility and poise between the pipes.
Smallish stature…doesn’t always take good angles…fundamentals could use refining.

Ron Cook is such a douche.
After his Malkin-bashing earlier this week, we have had enough.
We learned from an unnamed source that Cook has been to one Penguin game all year.
Meaning, he has no ground to say Malkin is sulking.
Haven't had a 'shop expo in awhile.
This one felt good.
