Islanders 5, Penguins 3

Didn't see the entire game - only parts of it. I think I'm going to add Satan to my most despised list - he likes to deliver big / cheap hits and then won't take the resulting fight like a man. He looks all tough and then just holds on for dear life, even against someone like Mark Recchi last night. I really would have liked to see Welch get a few good swings in on him last week - he would have pummeled Satan.

Anyway, Pens lose. Close game. Need to win. Blah blah blah - this song is getting old.

I saw a stat in the Post-Gazette today that said the team was 4-7-4 in their last 15 games. That won't get it done. Maybe they were a flash in the pan earlier in the year. Maybe they really miss Mark Eaton. I don't care - they really need to get a few wins consecutively.

Next up: vs Florida at the Igloo. The Panthers are stuggling BIG time - the Pens have to get a win.

"this song is getting old" is dead on. Don't get me wrong, it's great to see them actually compete in games compared to last year but it's almost harder to watch them lose.

Satan is a punk but he'll get his one of these days. I could see Army laying him out at the blue line some game.

Florida is up next and they are playing worse than the Pens so expect Jokinen to put up 4g and 5a.
