It felt like everything was in place tonight. The city was buzzing, the crowds were unusually large downtown, the bars were packed and the Igloo was alive with excitement. The whole place was white.
All the ingredients were there for a big win against the Ottawa Senators. Apparently, the Penguin players did not feel that same excitement that I was feeling. The Pens played more like they were playing the Atlanta Thrashers in a meaningless game at the end of the season.
The Pens were badly outplayed in this game……..at home……against a team that many think is inferior.
Here is to hoping that the Pens decide to “flip that switch” on Friday and make this a good series.
- Congratulations to Craig Adams for scoring tonight. He had no goals in the regular season, but is an unsung hero for this team.
