I'm so glad Detroit didn't get the early game today. Last year they had the early game on the same Saturday as the Green and Gold game and got booted from NBC in my area. Today it's just Caps/Isles. No big deal to me to have to watch it elsewhere.
It drove me nuts to miss the Wings to watch the NDSU college football team play itself.
We actually have a good record against the Rangers this year, so I wouldn't mind playing them. I just want the Pens out. They're a streaky team and if they would somehow come back and win this series, they'll be a pain to knock out. And as much as I'd like to listen to NBC praise the greatness of Crosby, I'd rather just see the disappointed look on his face during the handshake after Game 5.
