the Blues lost last night, so with this win, the Pens Officially will finish 2nd to last. guaranteed 3rd pick or better

Anybody else notice that Boguniecki has some impressive arms?

I hope the guy who won Nordgren's jersey will cherish it forever.

Wow.

I don't even know what to say. I just got back from the game. There was an aura in the arena tonight. Something that is only in there at certain times. You could feel the crowd willing Sid on, and Sid feeding off it from the start of the game..

1:44 in(I think)...Sid was off to the races...

After Sid hit 100, I hugged people I didn't even know. I lost my voice and the arena felt like it was shaking. It was a playoff type atmosphere that I haven't felt in that building since back in the 01 season, with the Montreal shootout being the closest I can think of.

Just an amazing game all around. The Crowd and atmosphere were second to none, and it's nice to say that I was there for goal #1 and point #100.

I may have only seen a handful of wins in the 20+ games I went to this year, but damn what a blast.

Crosby is the youngest player in league history to hit 100.

how is 100 more significant than 99 or 101?


Cause 100 is considered a milestone achievement....

Why is 40 goals important? 50 goals? How is 50 more significant than 49 or 51?

Did the guy put it on and then immediately become the invisible man?

No, but he was hit right into a wall by a guy running at full speed.

I was at the game. that's why Crosby had 3 points. Thank you, no autographs please.

I even lost sleep to stay at the late game.

Is the jumbotron year-end movie on the web yet?

And speaking of the program...why in the hell was Endicott on the cover as part of the "Building for the Future"?
