WOO HOOOOOO! What a great game by our D and especially The Flower. I was so impressed by their tenacity and their determination to win that game in enemy territory. Great job Pens and congrats on sole possession of 1st place in the Atlantic and a playoff berth!

I am more and more impressed with Hal Gill each and every game. He has really come on strong in every aspect of his game.

AMEN Matt - I was thinking the exact same thing.

The Dirty Rags lose to the Flyers in OT 2-1. Sens win in Buffalo 6-3.

Eventually I think the Rags might be number 7.

It paid off tonight.

AMEN Matt - I was thinking the exact same thing.
Now you see what happens when the team puts out maximum effort for 60 minutes? They got the job done, and in truly impressive fashion. That is why I was so angry with them last night, because I knew they could play better than that - it's not being a "doubting Don". Mailed-in efforts like last night's game simply cannot be tolerated at this stage of the season. If they had played last night the way they did tonight, there's no doubt in my mind they'd have beaten the Isles.

Hal Gill definitely has been solid over the past couple of weeks - he and Kris Letang work very well together and they arguably have been our best D pairing over that span. He has done everything the Pens had hoped when they brought him here - blocking shots, being physical in the corners (though I think he could be a little more aggressive there) and clearing the front of the net. It must have rubbed off on the rest of the guys, because they did an outstanding job of clearing the net and clearing rebounds away from Fleury. Of course, Fleury himself was terrific, making several tough, key saves when they were needed. They basically out-Deviled the Devils tonight.

Now that they've clinched a playoff berth, they may as well go ahead and win the division. But first, let's hope they extract a little revenge on the Isles on Thursday night and give them the beating they should have gotten last night.

EDIT: Not only did the Sabres lose, they gave up 5 goals in the final 7:40 of the game after being ahead 3-1!

All of our trade acquisitions have been really impressive

After a rocky start, Hal Gill has been really solid especially on PK

Dupuis is a hustle guy who can actually score

Hossa hasn't lit up the scoreboard but has played well back-checking and handling the puck

Sid will be in the lineup tomorrow night against the Isles!

Looks like Whitney has been "demoted" (per se) to left wing. He played pretty well in that position last night against the Devs, so technically, we'll be going with 6 d'men.

Crosby's back, Whitney's still at left wing
By Mike Prisuta

TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Wednesday, March 26, 2008

Penguins defenseman Ryan Whitney will continue to wing it, at least for the time being.

"I'm not playing 'D' any more right now," Whitney announced after an optional practice this afternoon. "I just gotta keep trying to improve, keep a good attitude and wherever I play, play as hard as I can.

"If I get a chance to play 'D' again I'll be ready."

Head coach Michel Therrien was unavailable for comment.

Whitney played left wing in the Penguins' 2-0 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday night.

He remained one of the point men on the top power-play unit and assisted on Ryan Malone's power-play goal in the first period.

Whitney signed a six-year, $24 million contract prior to becoming a restricted free agent last offseason.

Sidney Crosby will play his normal center position when he returns to the ice following a seven-game absence when the Pens host the Islanders on Thursday night.

"Yep, I'm playing," Crosby said. "My ankle feels great and the conditioning is as good as it can get without playing. I feel good."

Crosby suffered a high-ankle sprain on Jan. 18 and missed 21 games, returned for three and then left the lineup again prior to the Penguins' 7-3 win over Buffalo on March 12.

The Penguins are 16-8-4 without Crosby in the lineup.

Whitney played 11:29 against the Devils, 2:54 on the power play and 8:35 at even strength.

He's averaging 22:44 of ice time a game this season.

The Penguins' blueline became crowded when Rob Scuderi returned after an 11-game absence due to a fractured finger on Monday night against the Islanders. Whitney cited some perceived "inconsistencies" as the reason for his becoming the odd man out on defense.

"That's my assessment and the coach's assessment," Whitney said.

Whitney said it's up to Therrien as to when a switch back to defense is made. "When he wants me to play 'D' again I'll play 'D' and I'll try as hard as I can," Whitney said. "I don't know when that will be."

"I'm not thrilled playing forward but to win that game (on Tuesday night), it was awesome. It was a great feeling in the locker room and I was a part of it. It's still nice to be playing and clinch a playoff spot and be in first place. "I'm frustrated but I'm not going to let that stop my effort and enthusiasm. It's kinda on me to play better. I'm just going to battle through it."
