Before we start anything, big thanks to Ben Franklin for creating daylight savings time so we have to lose an hour of sleep.
Unreal coat, dumbass.
Here we go. Another round of inferiority complexes. Rumor has it that some creative Caps fans will be handing out pacifiers and tissues to people in the crowd. If they KNEW Ovechkin was better than Crosby, then there wouldn't be any need for all the theatrics. It's kind of sad to watch.
A lot of people will look at the standings right now and say, huh?
Yeah, that's right. Despite a five-game winning streak, if the playoffs started right this second, we'd all be golfling. But win or lose today, this is what the next month is going to be like. So get used to it.
Thanks to everyone who sent this in.
Tyler Kennedy loves his stick.
After the jump just a brief announcement concerning Pens fans going down to D.C. tonight.
The news came across the wire on Friday
that Gary Roberts will be hanging up the skates.
We would have gotten a stirring retirement ceremony together.
But it's Friday night.
What did the Pens do wrong in this game? Not too much.
Except Sykora was obviously drunk.
If you're getting scoring chances while minimizing
the decent chances the other team gets, you played a good game.
The Pens didn't make any glaring errors in this one.
And they haven't done so in a while.
The Pens have won 5 in a row. 7 of 8.
This is happening exactly when the Pens needed this to happen.
You can call it peaking at the right time if you want to.
Sunday's game in Washington is the game for many reasons. Bring it.
Sid's playing tonight.
Kunitz and Guerin played with him in practice.
Gonchar had sex with his wife after the Stanley Cup Finals
and is paying the price for it now.
Goligoski got called up.
If anyone knows the line combinations circling around for tonight,

There is a scene in the movie Gladiator where a broken-down Maximus
screams to the crowd after dispatching another joke,
"Are you not entertained? Are you not entertained? Is this not why you are here?"
That is Ray Shero.
No matter what he does, there will always be some fanboy that needs more.
And that sucks. If you're upset with Shero's moves at the deadline, get real.
Think back to three weeks ago when the Penguins were eating their own poop halfway down the steps to the basement of the Eastern Conference. A lot of Penguin fans were writing off the Pens as a playoff team. The same people are now wondering why Shero didn't make some blockbuster trade to make the Penguins a prime Cup contender. That's just not realistic. It wouldn't be worth it.
We'll get lazy now, and instead of capping this off with our own conclusion,
we'll just quote what Greg at PUCK DADDY said about Shero's moves on Wednesday:
Shero has now added Chris Kunitz, Craig Adams and Bill Guerin to this team. Give the man credit: He realized his decisions last summer neutered this locker room, and has reinserted a spine into this franchise. If that puts the Penguins back in the mindset of last season's team, then Pittsburgh's dangerous.
Does any team in the East seriously want to play a 7th- or 8th-seeded Pittsburgh team? THE CONFLUENCE echoes that sentiment. Lots more on Guerin and everything else after the jump.
It's no coincidence our site was jobbed on one of the two biggest traffic days of the year.
This wasn't Bloguin's fault in the least. Bloguin is the network of blogs. A host is where we put all of our pictures. The layman's explanation is that we were seeing more traffic than the host expected, and they were like wtf and shut us down.
We've been told to keep posts "light" in the next couple days. We think that stupid flash with all the logos swirling around was a deal-breaker in addition to all the traffic we received.
In a way, we can be jumping for joy that so many people are coming to the site. But when we jump, we hit our heads on the ceiling in the room that our host keeps us in. The problem is easily remedied: upgrade city.
We're exploring all options so this doesn't happen if the Pens get into the tournament thing
We'll have a post coming later.
Hopefully our host doesn't make us put in morse code.
Special thanks to Rick from PENGUINS EXPERIENCE. He will go down in history as the first person in our blog's existence to piece together five consecutive coherent sentences.Add a comment
