Sabres 3, Penguins 2 (OT)

Another day, another OT loss for the Pens. This one was 20 seconds away from a shootout, which I felt really good about considering the way Fleury was playing. Very exciting game, to say the least. The Pens seemed to turn it on in the third period, but could never do enough to get themselves over the top (and into the lead).

You keep watching this team and thinking that they're going to be fine, and there are no problems that time won't solve. At some point, you have to think that maybe they're just not that good, but I really have trouble saying that with a straight face. They have the two best players on the planet by far. They are massively talented. The only thing I've noticed is that they're sometimes lax defensively, and they don't always seem to be very fast.

Anyway, they're off until Friday, so maybe during the next few days, I'll take a look at how some of the divisions are stacking up so far, along with a look at the Baby Pens in Wilkes-Barre (if I'm feeling ambitious, at least).
