There's something about Victory that just feels good. I'll tell ya, when the Canadiens kept tying the game into the 3rd period I was ready to break out the crying towel to go along with the Pepto cocktail I was getting ready to make. But the guys never quit, and they never trailed. They kept up the pressure and threw about 7000 pucks at Price (ok, it was only 28, but it seemed like more). Mad Max and Sarge both scored (insert Snoopy happy dance here) Malkin was an absolute BEAST on the ice. El Sid was flipping pucks every whichaway and Marc Andre was doing his imitation of a schizo goalie... making some tremendous saves, but letting in a couple it looked like he should have taken care of. Weird. But I don't care. I like the way these guys played this game. It's going to take them a little while to get used to all the ins and outs of playing this style, but no more of the 'ok we've got to protect the lead' stuff. Wooooo Hoooo!!! Don't kick a team when they're down? Like hell! When they're down is when their butts in the perfect position for kicking! (ok that got a little out of hand, time to take the medication and calm down) You know, I'm still not sure the Pens are going to make the play-offs, but at least it's starting to look like they're going to fight for the chance. If you're going to go down, go down fighting and take as many of them with you as you can.... heh heh heh..... (ok, still over the edge, dial it back a little) GO PENS!!!!!!! Yeah, that was much calmer..... As usual, more to come when the highlights and stuff are posted.

He looked like one of those Looney Tunes characters when they try to walk on the ice.... combined with some sort of drunken club dance I've seen tried at 3 am... I'm just glad to see him score a goal again. Way to go Maximus!
