Game 33: Pens @ Sabres

Game 33: Pittsburgh Penguins @ Buffalo Sabres (7:00-Versus/WXDX).
The Penguins will attempt to get their heads out of there asses and play some hockey when they travel to Buffalo by the bus load. A little bit of team bonding before the game maybe?
The Buffalo Sabres lost to the Montreal Canadiens Saturday night 4-3 in OT. Ryan Miller has been playing his balls off lately, a 40 save shut out against the Kings and a 42 save performance in the loss to Montreal. After making atleast 40 saves 2 games in a row, Pittsburgh 20 shots tonight should seem like a bit of a break.


The Penguins are in some kind of funk right now that has them playing some terrible hockey. They got beat up against the Leafs on Saturday in what was about as embarrassing as it gets. Its about time for the Pens to start a run of about 12 wins in row. Maybe that loss to Toronto woke them up a little who knows.

We are getting closer and closer to seeing Ryan Whitney back on the Blueline for the Penguins. He had one assist in his only conditioning game in WBS.

Sidney Crosby Passed Jaromir Jagr for the most votes for the all-star team. Yesterday, but better than that. The Montreal Canadiens lost another starting spot. Marc Andre Fleury passed Carey Price for the top spot for starting goaltender. Only seems fair since Maf'er is a better goalie. Read some of the comments on the TSN article about Crosby beating Jagr, good times. and it shows just how stupid some people are.
