Penguins: Lord Stanley Has Returned To Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh PenguinsThere are no words that can describe the feeling I had seeing the final seconds of the 3rd period and the excitement all the players had as soon as they knew. This was an amazing series. As I had said before, to be the best you have to beat the best. The Penguins did just that. This series was one that was won by not just Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, but every single player on that Penguins roster. That is what was needed for this team to win the cup against a very deep Red Wings team. Zetterberg did an excellent job of shutting down Crosby which meant that everyone else had to step up.

I do believe that this series turned around at one single highlight….when Jordan Staal scored a short handed goal in game 4. I feel like that is the play in which should highlight this series.

Once the celebrating is over, back to business the Penguins must go. I will have a follow up post sometime soon that will discuss this team’s offseason and UFA and RFA players.

I would also like to say thanks to everyone on this forum and how supportive and friendly they have been. I have found a place to where I can discuss my feelings on my team and even though we are all fans of different teams we all love the wonderful sport of hockey. I look forward to doing this again next year and just want to thank everyone.

We all get to look forward to the off season and then another wonderful year of hockey!

The Pittsburgh Penguins Are Stanley Cup Champions!!

  2. I am sooooooooooooooooooooo happy the Pens won!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That series was *almost* better than my Ducks (ok. but I had to say it!) and of course, I was happy to see Kunitz win the Cup again. Didn’t I tell you he’d be a great addition??

    YEA PENS! All I can say is this: Hossa, thy name is KARMA!

  3. Duxrox - Glad to see you have returned! Kunitz was a great addition and even though he was held to only a few points this post season he played a much needed role on this team.

    I have had no hard feelings for Hossa switching teams and just as he mentioned after the game if he would have signed to Pittsburgh who would say they would be anywhere near the Cup this year?

    I feel for him because I can only imagine how painful that has to be. I would like to see him raise the Cup before the end of his career. I feel like he would probably be better off taking less and staying in Detroit for a longer contract.

  4. Thanks, pittpen. Life became insane. I will defer to you on the Hossa issue; you’d know better than I. I do agree he’d be better off staying with the Wings. As I like the pomp and circumstance, I love that Crosby was the youngest captain to raise the Cup. Love that!!! :)
