Re: New Official Pens Tidbits Thread
Pens won their season opener last night, 4-3 in a SO. Was an absolutely fantastic game to watch.
The good: - Fleury was spectacular. Some of the saves he made were just out of this world. He looked focused and confident. Definitely glad to see him in that shape (mentally and physically) to start the season.
- Cooke had a fantastic game as well. He had 2 goals, one a power play goal, the other a shorthanded goal. And he was all over the place...his name was called all evening. Glad to see him stepping up.
- Geno's shootout goal. It was just spectacular...and the fact that it was Geno doing it (he typically isn't very good in the SO) made it even more spectacular. He also had a nice assist on the first power play goal to Neal.
The bad: - Geno the rest of the game. It was painful to watch. Constantly getting beat, constantly losing the puck and constantly falling down. Lot's of things he still needs to work on. I'm happy he got some confidence and redemption out of the SO goal though...he's going to need it.
The ugly: - Nothing really, unless you want to just consolidate the bad and the ugly...cause sometimes it was just bad and others it was really ugly lol.
Here's the video recap for any who missed it.
Just realized that vid cuts off the end of the SO. Here's the entire SO.
People assume that time is a strict progression of cause and effect, but actually from a non-linear non-subjective viewpoint it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly timey wimey...stuff.
