Pens win....

Ok boys and girls here's a quickie from your boy Snack to hold you over till I get around to posting some links this afternoon...and come back to PNA this weekend for our new top 10 list (Diego is putting the finishing touches on it now) which is sure to blow yinz away (like always)...

Last night, the Pens won 4-3 in OT...I personally didn't think we played all that well, but Sydor came through in the third to score the tying goal on a slap shot that banked off a defenseman...

Ty Conklin played OK in net, but one thing that was noticed was that 2 of the goals scored against us were because Sergei Gonchar turned the puck over in our own zone, giving the likes of Alex Ovchenkin open shots...You can't do that and expect to win, but thankfully Gonchar came through in OT by plowing one past Ollie the Goalie from just beyond the circle...

Now all we can do is hope the Pens' New Years Resolution is to get a goal scoring winger and a badass defensemen (Hossa and a Pronger-type would be nice) and maybe even a goalie who can stop the puck (Moose Hedberg anyone?)... Go Pens!

Until lata...

I'd move a couple of bodies. The Pens haven't played a 60 minute game but a handful of times this season, and they're way too comfortable. They're like the Pirates, not talentwise - they have some - but in that the minor league players that should be pushing them are all on the major league roster now. They need something to light a fire under them. And why did they not resign Oullet?
