Default Re: New Official Pens Tidbits Thread

I couldn't stay up for the game (wish I had now!), but the Pens held on to beat the Flames 5-3 in Calgary last night.

CALGARY -- The Pittsburgh Penguins countered Calgary's opening-night pregame laser show with some second-period fireworks.

The Penguins used a four-goal middle period to beat the Flames 5-3 on Saturday night, spoiling the start of the new season for the sellout crowd at the Scotiabank Saddledome -- just as they did two nights earlier in Vancouver, when they beat the Canucks 4-3 at Rogers Arena. Pittsburgh, still playing without Sidney Crosby as he recuperates from a concussion, will try for a perfect swing through Western Canada on Sunday night in Edmonton.

Jordan Staal and Matt Niskanen had a goal and an assist as the Penguins received goals from five players. Marc-Andre Fleury made 17 saves as Pittsburgh outshot Calgary 38-20.

The Flames opened the scoring at 15:32 of the first period after defenseman Mark Giordano slid between Penguins forwards Craig Adams and Arron Asham and fed an open Curtis Glencross in the slot. Glencross one-timed the puck behind goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury.

But the Penguins awoke in an explosive second period that saw them outshoot Calgary 16-5 and beat Miikka Kiprusoff four times.

Way to stick up for Cookie, Geno! (even if it did suck lol)

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.  3365
