ESPN Game Recap

Roughly seven hours driving time from Pittsburgh

Tsunamis, hurricanes, deadly viruses, and war in the Middle East. The signs are all around us. I didn't know what to make of it all...until I read the box score for tonight's game:

Andre Roy - 0 G, 1 A

The apocalypse is upon us. Roy recorded an NHL point when he assisted on a goal by Ryan Stone in the second period of the Penguins 2-1 victory over Philadelphia.

Whachew gonna do when Andre Roy runs wild on you

After a scoreless first period, Ryan "Kidney" Stone got the Pens on the board. Later in the second, Philly's Geoff Sanderson scored on the powerplay to tie the game. Our old buddy Petr Nedved assisted on the goal.
The third period looked like it was a snooze-fest until Johnny Chocolate LeClair scored on the powerplay with 5 minutes left. The most appealing thing, looking at the box score, is the fact that Penguin Daniel Carcillo got a double-minor for high-sticking with 2:40 left in the game. Hitchcock probably pulled his goalie at the 2:00 mark, and the Pens effectively killed off a two-man advantage for the last two minutes of the game. That's intriguing, if that's the way it went down.

  • Nice to see a Pittsburgh sports team that can win.
  • Sid Kid Did not play
  • Jordan Staal - 1 A
  • Jocelyn Thibault - 18 saves, improves to 2-0 in preseason
  • Shots: PHI 19 - Pens 12. 12 shots.
  • Powerplay: PHI (1 for 6) - Pens (1 for 6)
  • Less than 11 days until the season opener against the Flyers

Two preseason games left
9/29 - vs. Buffalo
9/30 - @ Buffalo
