Pens Still Rolling

In Pittsburgh's 100th consecutive sellout, the Pens beat the Eastern Conference leading Boston Bruins 6-4. Riding Chris Kunitz's first hat trick since joining the Penguins and Bill Guerin's quick goal and two assists, the Pens showed the conference they are back into the same form as last year. Apparently, they took Kunitz's first goal away from him and gave it to Sergei Gonchar, so Kunitz didn't get the hat trick, sorry for the misinformation. They scored two power play goals and Matthew Garon stopped 21 shots in his first start in 19 games due to Marc Andre Fleury's dominance between the pipes.

The Pens also honored Eddie Johnston at the beginning of the game for his 25th year of service to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Now, I don't like blogging by telling you game by game analysis, I figure that is the big sites job. I want to point out what I think about the last couple games and refer to what's ahead. We came back from a hard loss against Ottawa where we securely had a 3-1 lead going into the 3rd and let them creep back and steal a shootout win against us. There is good things and bad things about losing, we gained a point in the last two losses because we went to the shootout. Like I have said in the past, if we are going to lose, do it on overtime, we get something out of it then.

We have gained 4 points out of a possible 6 in the last three games, moving us into 5th place in the East. If the playoffs started today, we would be once again beating the Philadelphia Flyers in the first round of the playoffs. The way we are playing mow, I think we are ready to take on anyone.
