Pretty successful day to be a Pittsburgh Penguins fan. Detroit comes to town and the Penguins, for the most part, had their way with them.
If Chris Osgood was in net today the Penguins would have won by nine. Jimmy Howard was in net and he did a great job getting the Red Wings a point in the game. Howard folded a little in the shoot out where he was owned pretty well by Bing and Geno, but then again who wouldn't be.
Here are the game highlights thanks to GhostWalker40:
and from the shootout
Man Bing is dirty. Or I guess he is called Cindy Rosby in Detroit? Is that still the cool thing to call him?
Good win for the Penguins as the Devils fell to the Kings 3-2 today. Currently the Penguins hold two games in hand on New Jersey and they are three points back, so it is not as bad as it was a couple of weeks ago.
The Penguins have six more games to play before the Olympic break and that will continue tomorrow with the Buffalo Sabres.
On to more of the game
-The defense played really well only giving up 21 shots, 11 through two periods.
-MAF was pretty solid all game. Didn't get tested a great deal but did what he had to do to win.
-I think it is impossible for MAF to get a shutout. Absolutely impossible.
-NBC was an absolute joke again. I found out via [SLBD] during the day that in certain markets, namely WBS, that the Penguins/Wings game was not being shown and instean a 700 Club Marathon was being shown. What a joke.
-I think we have all (and by all I mean all hockey fans, Penguins or not) takin a lot of crap from CBS, so if you went into SLBD's link you can get all the contact info for the NBC people but if you are too lazy the contact info will be posted here to incase you want to let me know how you feel.
