Senators 4, Penguins 3

Wow - this one was exhilirating, yet frustrating. To summarize somewhat quickly (since this is being posted late):
  • The Pens spot the Senators a four goal lead going into the third, only to come roaring back, thanks to... Andre Roy and Jani Rita? I can honestly say that's a sentence I never thought I'd write.
  • The Pens outshot the Sens 30-26, though how many shots do you need to take when leading by four goals?
  • The Pens didn't take many penalties - they faced just four short-handed situations. They allowed goals on two of the four. Not cool.

Overall, it was an exciting third period to watch. You could feel the energy the team was playing with and sense that they had the momentum. Why can't the produce like that for an entire game? When they figure out how to put it all together, they could be scary.

As for the lateness of my post, work is nutty. Clearly, I need to rethink my priorities if work is getting in the way of posting on the blog...

Next up are the Canes on Saturday night.

This was an interesting game. Though I didn’t see the whole game in its entirety because I was working, but I caught most of it. I like the lines we had out, including the makeshift ones that scored 2 out of 3 of the goals. If we had some more productivity from our top line in that game I bet we would have won. But hey, Here we go draft pick, here we go!!!
