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.
LW Niklas Nordgren
C Krystofer Kolanos
C Andy Hilbert
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. =)
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.
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.
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.
