Tom Barasso was a crazy SOB, but one of the best playoff goalies ever. If you got anywhere near his crease, he'd whack you with his goalie stick - no questions asked. LOL!

I think this series is going to go 6, probably 7 games, as both teams are extremely talented and driving for the finish line. It's gonna be a good one! LETS GO PENS!

Defenceman Sergei Gonchar took a third consecutive day off on Saturday while his teammates returned to practice at Mellon Arena in advance of their Monday opener against Carolina.

Dan Bylsma said Gonchar's absence from practice yesterday shouldn't be viewed as an indication of his readiness, or lack thereof, to play against the Hurricanes. - Tribune-Review

Thanks for the info Killer. Hopefully, Serg will be ready to go tomorrow night.

I'm really looking forward to this series and am hoping beyond hope that the Pens can start out 2-0.

LETS GO PENS!

Home ice in the ECF - after barely making the playoffs? - gotta love it!

And now we'll find out how much having Gonchar playing on one leg will hurt us.

And I always said from the start Cam Ward is scary good. Got to send guys to the net.



More news...

The Pittsburgh Penguins have recalled forwards Chris Minard, Jeff Taffe, and Dustin Jeffrey from Wilkes Barre/Scranton of the AHL. Goaltender John Curry and defenseman Ben Lovejoy were also recalled.

The Baby Penguins’ season ended last week with a loss in the seventh game of a playoff series with the Hershey Bears.

The five players recalled don’t figure to get into game action barring multiple injuries, but they’ll be “Black Aces” and stick with the team for as far as it goes.

Gonchar practices, optimistic about playing Monday
Sunday, May 17, 2009
By Dave Molinari, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Penguins defenseman Sergei Gonchar says he is optimistic about being able to play in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference final against Carolina Monday night at Mellon Arena.

Gonchar, who had been off skates for the previous three days, participated in the team's practice at Southpointe today, then expressed confidence that he'll be in uniform against the Hurricanes..

"It looks promising," he said. "I don't want to say anything (conclusive) right now, but there's a good chance."

Gonchar missed Games 5 and 6 of the Penguins' second-round series against Washington after a knee-on-knee hit from Capitals left winger Alex Ovechkin during Game 4. He returned for the Penguins' 6-2 victory in Game 7, but played little more than 15 minutes, barely half his usual workload.

Also, the Penguins recalled forwards Dustin Jeffrey, Chris Minard and Jeff Taffe, defenseman Ben Lovejoy and goaltender John Curry from their farm team in Wilkes-Barre, which has finished its season.

It's the playoffs. If you can breathe, you can play.

I guess with this stupid schedule we can afford to keep dressing 7 d-men without the risk of wearing out our forwards

GO PENS!!!
