Hey pens fans,
On a positive not, I would like to wish a Happy Birthday to MArio Lemieux.
Now, onto the game...
Tonight, the Pens lost their season opener 4-1. The Pens' lone goal came in the third period. It was scored by Mark Recchi and assisted by Gonchar and Malkin. Fleury was in goal to start the game, but after letting in 4 goals on 26 shots in the first 2 periods, he was pulled. Sabourin finished out the game stopping 7 of 7 shots faced. The team seemed to take some time to get their legs going. The were a bit sluggish and it was easy to see it was their first game. The Canes had previously played Wednesday. In the third period, the Pens really began to come to life. Hopefully, that continues tomorrow night, when the Pens take on the Stanley Cup Champion Ducks, at the Mellon Arena.
