Great win yesterday. Its always fun for me to see the Wings beat the Pens and even nicer when its 5-1. I'd be mad about all the crap the Pens pulled yesterday, but honestly, that's all expected. When you play them, you know you're going to get that kind of sportsmanship or lack thereof. They've developed a reputation as being this whiny, emotional, uncontrollable team that loses their composure as soon as things start to go south for them. What's really tough for them is the type of coach they need is the type of coach Crosby, Malkin and others won't want to play for. Its a tough spot.
Fortunately, for us, we have a great group of guys, good mix of young and old. Mrazek was great yesterday, but he was terrible the last time he played in Pittsburgh, so let's all keep that in mind before we go banging the drum for Howard's departure. As far as I'm concerned they both need to work on their consistency. Pulkkinen should never wear a GR Griffins jersey again and we need to find Zidlicky the fountain of youth and keep this guy around as long as we can. On that 3rd goal, I think he broke the space time continuum. I thought I saw the puck hit the back of the net before he actually shot it. I was kind of whatever when we acquired him, but now I can't imagine our blueline without him.
If you're having a bad day or just need a smile, ask Siri "Who won the Red Wings Penguins game?" I've done it like 10 times yesterday and today, it never gets old hearing "The Red Wings crushed the Penguins by a score of 5-1."
