Hey everyone. Sorry I haven't posted in a while, I was really busy last week, so here are some of the things that went on the past few days.

Trade Deadline

Additions
LW Niklas Nordgren
C Krystofer Kolanos
C Andy Hilbert

Subtractions
D Cory Cross
RW Mark Recchi

We all know we felt the Recchi trade coming at same point on deadline day. At least he's in Carolina though, now hes got a shot at winning the cup. =)

March 8
Unfortunately we lost that night vs. the Washington Captials, 6-3, who the Pens had beaten 3 times this season and Sidney Crosby lost the 4th and final round between him and Alexander Ovechkin. AO had a goal and 2 assists, while Sid the Kid had just 1 assist.

March 11
The Penguins play a good game and defeat the New Jersey Devils with a score of 6-3. Sidney Crosby had 2 goals and a assist and Sergei Gonchar, Ryan Malone, Michel Ouellet and newcomer Andy Hilbert all had 2 point nights. Marc-Andre Fleury also had a amazing night and stopped many of New Jersey's great scoring opportunities.

March 12
The Pens played their last game, in their only set of back-to-back home games against the Philadelphia Flyers. Colby Armstrong had Pittsburgh's 2 goals as they went on to beat the Flyers 2-0. Fleury was the first star and recorded his first shutout of the season and second shutout of his career.

*Colby Armstrong is now on a 8 game point streak (5 goals and 7 assists). This ties Alexander Ovechkin and Boston Bruin's Brad Boyes for the second-longest rookie point streak this season. Teammate Sidney Crosby owns the longest, which was 10 games.*

Next game for the Penguins is Thursday vs. the New Jersey Devils again at 7:30.

till then-

Geez, the boys are on fire.

I'm so proud of Colby. I watched him develope from a forward that had limited ice time in the AHL to a gritty forward who chips in when needed in the NHL. I couldn't be happier for the guy.

And Sids? Getting assists on all Colby's goals (pretty much) and then getting a few of his own? Wow.

I was pretty pissed that Recs got traded. He'll be back next season.

I like Andy Hilbert. A goal and an assist in your first game as a Penguin? Shows that he wants to stay here. What the boys needed.

How screwed up is it that Cross scores a goal in his first game since being traded!? That's a real slap in the face!

I know am so proud of Colby too. My friends and I just luv him and I really hope his point streak can continue.

yeah Sid has done really well the past few games, which is good if he wants to catch up to Ovechkin...though I doubt he will unfortunately. He's 8 points behind now I think...AO had 3 points 2night.

Hilbert really did play well that game I was happy for him and lol, yeah that does kind of sting that Cross scored on his first game since being traded.

If I remember right, Recchi and Jackman played against each other their first games on other teams. It was kinda funny to watch.

The guys are on fire and it's awesome to see!!~ They are all doing so well.
