Thats more like it

I don't talk about the The Devils because I don't recognize what they do as actual hockey, therefore i didn't remark on what took place this following Saturday, It had nothing to do with the final score. That thing they do in new Jersey can have an effect on hockey teams, sort of like Kryptonite for superman. All you Devils fans bask in the glory of winning games 1-0 and 2-1, but just remember THAT ISN'T HOCKEY.

And now on to what happened last night. Hal Gill and the Montreal Canadiens came to town on a 4 game winning streak to face the Penguins for the first time this season. Well it didn't work out so well for them. The Pens scored early and scored often. It took Crosby a little under 2 periods to get a hat trick and the Pens to rack up a commanding 4 goal lead. Maf was back to his normal self and all is good in Penguin land. Maybe the biggest thing from last night is Kunitz getting his first goal since the Montreal Wanderers swept the Ottawa Victorias in 2 games (1908 wasn't that long ago). Not only did he score a breakaway goal, he also racked up an assist on each of Sids 3 goals. Ironically he was on my Fantasy team until Monday morning. If that's what it takes to break his goal drought, I'm happy to Oblige.

But again, with the good comes the bad. this appears in the paper today.
Penguins center Evgeni Malkin will miss "a couple weeks" because of a strained right shoulder, coach Dan Bylsma announced after practice today at Mellon Arena.

First Gonch and now this. Everyone says the Penguins have great depth all around. Well they are getting a chance to prove it.

Go Pens.
