GameDay (23) -- Thrashers @ Pens



The Thashers were left for dead early on, after starting the season like poop.

But then they fired their head coach.
And now they're clearly in the playoff picture.

It may have been a matter of players disliking their coach and tanking games to encourage his firing.

But whatev.

We get to see (and worry about) Kovachoo tonight.

Awesome Video

Sid's passion for hockey is one of the things other teams love to try and exploit or hate about the kid.

I think all the sidfanatics and Pens-fans agree that his love of the game to an extent where he gets so upset is one of the things we absolutely love.
I dunno about everyone else, but it reminds me a lot of a young Lemieux who got hot-blooded a handful of times as well.

Should be a great game tonight. Hossa is just getting hot and Kovulchuk is insane right now. Luckily their goaltending is iffy right now (a situation we relate to).

After the Ottawa game I'm just excited to see the Pens take the ice again, and if we win the rest of our games 5-4, 6-5, or 7-6 I'm A-OK with that. better than "trap hockey"

big game all around. Colby showing why he belongs the lineup and Staal finding his way out of the Rest Area he's been trapped in.

nicholas, the only thing better than Sid's passion for the game now will be when he's consistently able to harness it to own games. That only comes with age and experience. Was there anything better than seeing the progression of Mario's expression from disgust to "fuck this shit," steely-eyed swagger? That face meant "game over."

Right now when Sid gets pissed you still can't quite predict what he'll end up doing, but I don't think anyone doubts he'll get there. It's difficult to imagine that he could become even more fun to watch, but he will be when that happens.

Love the wins, hate the lack of momentum the week-long layoff gives us. Hopefully it won't have any effect.
