Who woulda thunk it? Our Pens are 3-3 to start the season. Way better than last October. What's even better is that it looks to be impossible that the Penguins could have a 6 or 7-game losing streak this year that have become a staple in recent seasons. They look like a hockey team this year.
Thanks to GHOST OF RANDY CUNNEYWORTH in the comments for pointing this out: The Pens are 3-1 vs. the Atlantic Division this year. If we keep winning 3 out of 4 against the Atlantic, we'll be staring the playoffs in the face. Very encouraging.
...Segei Gonchar got NHL.com's #1 star last night...
...Sidney Crosby is ranked 6th in this edition of TSN.ca Center Rankings...
...It's hard not to enjoy the Flyers' woes this season...
...The Buffalo "Indianapolis Colts" Sabres take on Carolina tonight...striving for a 7-0 record...
...The other undefeated team, Minnesota, takes on Anaheim in a late game...
...Thanks to Mondesi's House for finding this gem: Maxim Online rates hockey's toughest bastards. No real cohesiveness to the entire list, but fight your way through the boobies and legs in the advertisements to check out who is #1. (You too, lady readers.)
...And, finally, Ryan Malone showed up last night in Uniondale, NY, deftly killing penalties by killing time in the offensive zone. Our first Ryan Malone sighting of the year.
