Penguins 8, Capitals 1 + game #51 preview

Wow. Where has this output been? Of course, the Pens haven't been playing teams like the Capitals. This is going to be really short, since Blogger was down and I'm trying to write this on the tail end of my lunch break.

Last night, Sidney Crosby showed why he is a worthy successor to Mario Lemieux as the next player to be the face and heart of the franchise. He had an insipired performance. Marc Andre Fleury also played a great game, making some nice saves. For the most part, it's hard to criticize anyone for their play in this one.

Of course, the Blues also won last night, so the Pens are just four points out of the cellar in the NHL. They need to develop some consistency, especially on the offensive end. Tonight they play the Islanders. Should be a fun one to watch to see how much the team has left in the tank after the game last night. The Islanders aren't a very good team, and they've struggled lately (3-6-1 in their last 10).

Let's go Pens!
