I wonder if Coach T was watching

The Pens skated to a 5 to 4 victory last night on home ice. After giving up leads all night long Gonchar finally got the game winner in the 3rd period, It would be Gonchars first goal of the season. Bylsma gets his first win as the Pens head coach. Shero is already typing up the 3 year contract.
The Game was all about taking the lead and letting the habs back in it. getting an early one goal lead from Sykora to start, The Pens did just what they had to do, get the first goal. The Pens got 2 goal lead early in the 3rd period with goals by malkin and Staal. Malkins goal was one of beauty and the pass from Crosby was equally as impressive, but the pens leat the Habs come back with 2 goals from Kostitsyn and Plekanec to tie the game a t 4, But Gonchar would end all hopes of a comeback when he delivers a heavy slapshot from the point that beats Price for the 5th time in the game. A win is a win and the Pens need a lot of them to grab one of the top 8 spots in the east.
The Schedule doesn't get any easier with back to back games against philly and Washington coming this weekend. We will get to see Mike Richards diving across the ice all afternoon, and Captain Caveman taking runs at everyone with nothing called because he is who he is.

Is Sid the Kid a wimp? I wish he didn’t back down from OV in the game.

I don't think Crosby is a wimp but between hm and Malkin, Ovie should have been on his ass a time or 2
