Pens 3, Canes 0; Game of the Year ??

May very well have been.

I mean, it wasn't the blowout win like vs. the Flyers, but against one of the best teams in the NHL, that was one complete team win by the Pens last night.

The Pens last night hustled their asses off, the thing that when they've lost, was one of the main culprits. They got nearly every loose puck, and if not for Cam Ward's efforts, might have made this game 6-0, or worse.

I don't know if I've ever seen the Canes that sluggish, they just did NOT have it last night. But it's those games that the Pens have to take advantage of.

Oh yeah, that Crosby kid was pretty good again. Three more points, ho-hum. Of course, I'm joking, he juked Ward out of his jock on his first goal.

MAF was stellar once again. Great time for him to get on a roll, the schedule doesn't get any easier, with the Sabres on Friday night.

I want to see the Pens put another complete game together and knock off the Sabres. I don't think they're going to get rid of that inconsistency until they see that they can beat the best team in the Eastern Conference.
