Well folks, somehow I completely missed it but we're already halfway through the regular season. We have the Oilers tonight, Flames tomorrow, and Caps on Wednesday. The games tonight and tomorrow are at 10 and the Caps game is at 8, all weird start times.
I was planning on doing a little special thread showing where we stand in a couple different categories but just a quick look:
We currently have a 7 point lead in the East and are 4th overall
4th in goals per game
8th in goals against per game
2nd in power play percentage
2nd in penalty kill percentage
(That's great special teams work)
Crosby has an 11 point lead in the overall leaders
A lot of close games lately. The pens seem to have a hard time closing out games and letting the opponent scratch back to tying or blowing the lead. With that being said they have quite a lead in the division. Just hope they find the killer instinct come playoff time which there is plenty of time to find it
Crazy game tonight. Being down two with what, 10 minutes left and then to have Maata score the game winner with about 2 minutes just capped it all off. Crowd seemed into it as well, booing Ovechkin every time he touched the puck
good game for pens hey we won that's what matters. Pens should start a mistake jar every bad play or lack of hustle play drop a bill in the jar. The first goal was bad pass by letang and lack of hustle by malkin. we were on a dam pp.
On a side note I cant wait until we are 100 % healthy and got are chemistry and all players going same direction.
In other news, two AHL players were sent back down today (don't feel like typing out their names lol), as well as Despres. Despres probably means that Martin will return, which is a good thing, but it's a shame he can't stick up here
