Pens win 4 to 1 and are just dominate! Kennedy and Staal are on fire early this season which I think really relieves the Pens when Crosby and Malkin are not on the scoreboard.
Pens records improves to 5 and 1!

Pens' opponent this-coming Saturday evening, Tampa Bay (now 2-1-2), win 3-2, coming from behind, with Malone scoring the game-winner against Floriduh, and Niittymaki gets his 2nd straight start & win:
with me getting the Bolt games on TV, I'll give previews & updates regarding the Lightning as I can, as they play Ottawa Thursday, before headin' to 'da Burgh

I believe that game Saturday night will be the first game this season with the Guins wearing Columbia Blue sweaters

You are correct - they will break out the blue sweaters for the first time Saturday night. As for Tampa Bay, they should be much better this year than last, but I still don't think they have enough to make the playoffs, being in the same division with the Craps, Canes and an improved Thrashers squad. I hear Victor Hedman has looked real good, though.

As for the Pens game tonight, a very solid effort all-around. With 3 of the 4 goals coming from the 3rd and 4th lines, they made a strong statement that they do not need Sid and Geno to carry them, that they have more than enough depth to win when the Big Two have an off night. Fleury again was solid in goal, and of course got a couple lucky breaks with Ottawa hitting 2 posts. Just a businesslike effort, and more along the lines of what we have seen since Bylsma has taken over as HC.

Next up - Carolina, in their first meeting since the Pens swept them out of the playoffs in the ECF. My guess is that Bill Cowher will NOT be cranking up the warning siren this time.

I had to record the game to watch football, but, to be honest - Pens really got lucky on all the bounces.

It was just one of them nights where everything rolled in - remember this game when it goes the other way.

Sens looked pretty good with Spezza and their goalie - LeClaire? They looked good.

But a win is a win - even though Geno had some less than genius plays going on and Sid couldn't buy a goal.


Now the Canes on Wed - I wonder if Cowher will be cranking the siren again.

I've seen 3+ of their 5 games, and the Lightning PP is for-real..... Hedman plays Left-point, the Left-handed VL4 plays the opposite point, St, Louis gets along the Right-wing/half-boards, Malone pesters the goalie's Left shoulder, and Stamkos (the only Right-handed shot) slides in the slot, cranking shots at-will, taking passes from StL or Lecavalier:
very-potent.

the rest of the team is improved, and at 2-1-2, they could be 4-1-0 with any luck, and the ability to score in the shoot-out (both OT loses, I believe):
G Mike Smith has recovered from his concussions of last year, Niittymaki has played solid in both wins (Smith got run-over last week, and has been rested since), and Tocchet has instilled a new spirit in the team

We've been on the business end of a lot of those games, so yeah, I'll definitely take it. But I'm not concerned about Sid and Geno - it's Kunitz and Fedotenko I'm worried about. Only one goal between them - not good, and certainly not when they're playing with the 2 best players in the world.

I really wasn't all that impressed with the Sens - other than Spezza's line, they really aren't that good. Alfredsson looks extremely slow, Cheechoo still looks as if he hasn't rediscovered his scoring touch and Kovalev pretty much mailed in his effort last night, as he has done way too often over the past few years. Their defense is very suspect to boot. Unless Leclaire channels Martin Brodeur or pulls a Steve Mason from last year, that team is going nowhere.

OK, so it should be a good matchup Saturday night and a nice test for the Pens. I still think we will beat them, though.

I remember the limp Sens from last year - they looked better than that, that's all.

I'm not like, In Love, with them or anything
