Is it The Flyers or The Leafs?

The Pens skated to a 5-2 win over the Toronto Maple leafs on staurday night, giving the Pens 4-1 record to start out the season. Much to my surprise the Leafs reminded me a lot of the Flyers in their goonery. Although from what i could see there was no biting. The spear to Letang should have gotten Rosehill sent to the locker room, But instead he gets a 2 min roughing call. It seems like the Leafs are going to be a joke again this season, but instead of just losing, They are gonna fight and lose. Atleast it will be a little more interesting.

The Pens power play was clicking on all cylinders going 3 for 5 with Crosby getting 2 of them. I wouldn't put to much stock into it, afterall, it is the Leafs. Fleury made 18 saves. hardly a days work for him.

Tonight we take on the Ottawa Senators for the first time this season. The Sens beat the Thrashers Saturday night. Newcomer Alex Kovalev got his first goal in a Ottawa. I guess he's the replacement for Cry baby Danny heatley who just had to get traded. He didnt like how the coaches were using him. Thats a shame. If i was in that situation there would be 4 million reasons (or whatever he makes) why that wouldn't bother me. Lets not forget another biter and ex-Penguin Jaarko Ruutu play for the Sens still.

(we still remember this....Right?

Thats the way he played when he was a penguin and we all loved him for it.

The Sens are on a 3 game winning streak, but i cant forsee the Pens having a tough time with this team.

Go Pens
