I'm rotting for Geno because A) His game kind of reminds me of Lemieux and B) I have an irrational adoration of him.

I guess I am showing my age (44), but I am old enough to remember when Lemieux had 97 points with 3 games to go in his rookie season (84/85) and rooting for him to get 100 (he got it with a point in each of the last 3 games). I remember the next few seasons when rooting for Lemieux's personal achievements was the only thing Pens fans had to cheer for late in the season.

The Pens aren't in that distressed state anymore so I could care less who wins the scoring title (no Flyers of course), even if it is Ovechkin. I just want to see the Pens win and it doesn't matter to me if Scuderi and Goddard score all the goals.

If Scuderi scored all the goals it would be AWESOME!

They probably figured the guy never had full posession on both cases, and I didn't think Gino touched the puck on the Letang goal. But like I Said, they gave him one right back. Phantom assists all around!


Phantom? Watch the play again he did all the work at the boards and passed it to Sid.

I like the tradition of penguins winning the Art Ross~ but if this team wants to start new tradition of collecting stanley cups, that is fine by me.

Right now they are about the same. Malkin has more room to get better than ovy and crosby. We'll see if it happends.


qué? How do you figure?

Apparently the Flyers board is making a big issue out of the Letang goal also.

It was pretty obviously a giveaway by the Rangers D-man.
