If You Do the Math...We are Still In It

The Phoenix Coyotes skated to their second victory last night, The Pens were there don't worry. They just decided to take in the game as a spectator from the Penalty box. The Coyotes controlled the flow from the drop of the puck to the final whistle. There is not much more that can be said about that. Brent Johnsons debut was good. He had a few good saves and one stellar glove save to keep the Pens in it early, But the rest of the team didn't care to be in it at all.

Another bright spot of last night was Chris Bourque Looked good in his 1st game. Actually by the end of the game I thought he was our best skater on the ice. Enough about the Yotes, I'm fully aware that the Pens didn't show up because they knew they were traveling to Philly today.

Tonight the Pens faceoff against the hated Flyers and their band of Goons. I'm sure Philly will want some revenge from last seasons early playoff exit from the hands of the Penguins. The Flyers haven't lost a game yet, as opposed to last year being the final to to actually get a win. There are some newcomers for Philly this season. Chris Pronger comes to mind. One of the best defenseman in the league, but also one of the dirtiest in the league. Why did it take him so long to get to the Flyers, seems like a perfect fit.

Another future inmate in starting goalie Ray Emery. Pens fans remember him from 3 seasons ago when he was with Ottawa, and they ended the Pens playoffs in 5 games of the first round. Fresh of a season in Russia, because nobody else would sign such a head case. Never fear, That is a perfect fit in Philadelphia.

Lets not forget the rest of the rejects that play for Philly, Mike Richards is the Captain of the futere inmates, Jeff Carter is the leading goal getter of a season ago, Danny Brierre is Captian of the Philly Cheer Team, and last but not least, Scott Hartnell. There are no words that can express how much of a D-bag the thing is.

Tonight is the biggest game so far in this young season. I can deal with any loss some worse than others, But a loss to Philly is unacceptable. We lose to the Flyers, i consider it a losing season no matter the Outcome.

Go Pens..
