So, I sat down and started to watch last night’s game and was immediately rewarded with a great feed from Phil Kessel to Sidney Crosby ending with a goal scorer’s goal at the edge of the Florida crease on the power play a mere 6:46 into the game.

It has only been a couple of months since our Penguins hoisted the Cup, now we are only about a month away from raising the banner from that championship–and the curtain to defend that championship.
