Penguins 2 - Flyers 0: Armstronging Philly

It's always sweet when the Pens beat the Flyers. I love the Flyers as much as cholera, measals, and a turd sandwich.

Colby Armstrong was the offensive hero with a deuce of goals on the night, both assisted by Herr Sidney Crosby.

Crosby has been a horse since Recchi was traded. On the night, he played 24:41(!) and had 5 shots on goal, 2 assists, +1, and went 14-for-20 on faceoffs. I guess to making Sidney more effective is to take any player over 26 years of age off of the roster.

Michael the Hockey Fanatic had a fan's perspective over at his 'confessional' blog.

The Flyers frustration, thanks to Fleury, turned to chippy feisty behavior. Several Penguins and Flyers pushed and shoved with 5:15 left to go in the period. This would certainly be the key to the game. If one player on either side were to lose their cool, it could cost them a penalty kill. This is crucial when the Flyers saw their locker room still down 1-0 at the end of the 2nd period.

Colby Armstrong has really proven himself an offensive force lately posting his second goal of the game early 2:50 into the 3rd period. Crosby helped out with Rita on that goal earning Sid 2 points at that point in his race to chase Ovechkin.
