Baby Pens survive!

The Baby Pens won their first round series against Bridgeport, coming back from 2-0 and 3-2 defecits. This is actually a double bonus for the big club, as those young guys will again get a longer taste of playoff hockey, and perhaps more importantly, Marc Andre Fleury was the winning goaltender in both elimination games. Take a look at their website for more.

Of course, in the fine tradition of our local Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, there was absolutely no news I could find on the Penguins or Baby Pens in the Sunday paper. The seventh game of the series was Saturday night. Of course, I'm not being fair - Saturday was the NFL Draft, and your beloved Steelers traded up to pick Santonio Holmes. There was no bigger news than that in Pittsburgh over the weekend. How sad. (disclaimer - I am a huge Steeler fan as well - I just get tired of the single-minded yinzers thinking that the Steelers have to dominate everything to do with sports around here)

Sounds like the Russians are getting a little greedy.
