Pre Season NHL Hockey is like kissing your sister, but we are going lol. Myself, Big Al, Donna, Nicole and Brady Douglas are going. This is Bradys first Penguins game.
Penguins Players who are dressing tonight vs Tampa Bay
Forwards: Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Pascal Dupuis, Jordan Staal, Janne Pesonen, Ryan Stone, Kris Beech, Jeff Taffe, Miroslav Satan, Petr Sykora, Bill Thomas and Eric Godard,
Defensemen: Sergei Gonchar, Ben Lovejoy, Alex Goligoski, Brooks Orpik, Mark Eaton and Darryl Sydor
Goalies: Marc-Andre Fleury and Dany Sabourin.
Tampa Bays 1st overall pick will be in the lineup Steve Stamkos. No Vinny or St. Louis. also Tampa is now Penguins South and from the looks none of them in lineup. Ryan Malone, Mark Recchi, Gary Roberts, and Adam Hall did not make the trip to Pittsburgh.
I"m personally looking forward to seeing Janne Pesonens North America Debut tonight. This guy has all kinds of talent. He was a stud in the SM-Liiga. He was Rookie of The Year in 03-04, Playoff MVP in 07, Leagues Leading Scorer in 08, and has won 4 Finnish Championships. Lets see if that can carry over to the National Hockey League.
I cant wait for another fun season and more great memories. last year was unbelieveable, to bad they lost in the Cup Finals but they lost to a better team.
Favorite moment for me from last season: being at game 5 of the stanley cup finals and the Pens tieing the game up with like 45 secs left, then Petr "Man Crush" Sykora winning in in Triple OT.
