Evil Penguins:



Marc Andre Fleury will lead the 'Evil Penguins' from between the 'Evil Goalposts' tonight against the Habs. Joining them for the first time in quite a while will be Luca 'You'll sleep with the fishes' Caputi. Tyler Kennedy is being spanked for one game for doing something well deserved to one of the Laffs in Saturday's game, so Caputi will jump right on the fourth line. Actually, 'caput' is 'finished' in German, so maybe I should call him Luca 'the finisher' Caputi... I'll have to think about that. The Croz was named Second Star of the Week for his........ well, his boyish demenor and I guess he was just too damned cute to say 'no' to.... Ok so it was for the 8 points (3 goals 5 ass.) which led all scorers last week.

Evgeni Malkin has been named 'permanent' alternate captain for the Pens. After trying it out on just about everyone starting with Geno and Orpik, HC Therrien has decided that Geno is 'the man'. Sergei Gonchar has been named the to the other 'A' jersey, but until he marches back into the line-up Brooks will hold onto it for him.

Speaking of 'Sarge', the training staff has taken away his 'red shirt' allowing Sergei to participate in contact type practices. Ok, I realize the whole 'baby steps' concept, but now I'm starting to get impatient because it seems as though 'baby' has been making a lot of those 'steps' recently. As a matter of fact, 'baby steps' seems to be tear-assing across the floor. And now I want 'baby steps' to get his Russian butt back on the ice where I can see him.

News From Canadia: It seems that the Canadiens will be without their top scorer indefinitely. Robert Lange suffered an Achilles tendon tear Sunday. He was, evidently mashed into the boards by Stephan Yelle. Carey Price hasn't been the same goalie that shut down the Pens since coming back from an ankle injury and doesn't quite have the same mobility side-to-side. I hope no one will think me too mercenary when I say that I feel for Robert and Carey, but have absolutely no sympathy for the Canadiens. Their problems as a team just make me giggle. Speaking of problems.. I hope they don't trot out those eye-melting uniforms they were wearing when they played the Brunes.... It looked like Boston was playing some bizarre convict team...

More to come as stuff dribbles out of my brain....

Man that was frustrating but it did help in someway cause the Panthers lost. If we could have tied it up we could have make it count. I know how we played but be careful that you dont say they "sloppy" or NHL might fine you somehow (just kidding!)

But 'sloppy' is such a good word... Habs just had more jump the whole game than Pittsbugh did, there's no way to put it a nice way.... They played a sloppy game and they lost....
