Pens v Flyers

Quote of the month:
Siddo is the Harry Potter to Ovechkin's Draco Malfoy.
~ Friend of The Show 66Pens87's analogy of the Penguins Captain to the new Capitals captain
I don't know about you, but I simply couldn't believe that just WEEKS after a pair of hits and a suspension that led his own coach to publicly question whether or not he was a dirty player A-hOle™ was named captain of the Washington Capitals. It's a complete disgrace. Some people may call him "vanilla" but at least our Captain is someone we can be proud of.

(Late Edit: Many thanks to good Friend of The Show Joeceff for pointing out my unfortunate typo below!)
The victory over the Flower THRASHERS was even sweeter because three of the role players who have been contributing SO MUCH without any results (disregarding that disastrous road trip) finally got some results, and the WBS call-up made a big contribution as well. Another highlight from that game: Steigy was telling a story about something (the subject matter escapes me at the moment) when he gave us a stat just as FSN was going to commercial. When they came back, Steigy informed us that he was incorrect about the player's name (BIG surprise there - he's wrong about who's on the ice 70% of the time) and that none other than Troy Crosby had texted him the correct information during the break. :)

Tonight we're facing our vintage archenemies. Gonch isn't quite ready to return, and now Tank is out with a messed up knee. Expect a nasty match. The ones versus the Broad Street D-Bags Bullies always are...

GO PENS!!!!!!!!!!!
