not taking anything away from your enthusiasm but you have pittsburgh

Wings beat them a few days ago. The Pens' minor league team is near me. There are two kinds of Pens fans I've dealt with over the years. The ones who suffered through the dark days of Dick Tarnstrom leading them in scoring from the blue line (I've had some great hockey chats with them), and those who bandwagoned after Crosby and Malkin came along (the vast majority of whom run their mouths and don't know squat about hockey). All of their tears were delicious after the buzzerbeater a few days ago.
That said, I do expect the Pens to show up with their A game to avenge that loss. It should be a good game in any case.
