Again, Mike Lange. I bow to you. The man is a god when it comes to speaking, I swear. Mike said this about Ottawa before we played them earlier this season. How true his statement is, I guess we'll find out tomorrow night. We did beat them 4-1 on October 12th.
Highlight of the day: Crosby carried the Olympic Torch for Canada tonight which is pretty awesome. He's kind of a big deal... I'm so proud to have him as our captain. 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, who's ready? Check out some video footage of Sidney and the torch.
In other news, Cupcake McKee is out for 2-4 weeks with an infected finger. Really? 2-4 weeks? It's amazing we have any defensemen left! Mark Eaton is the only original D-man left standing. I guess Skoula was around, waiting to be used, but still. In related news, Sergei Gonchar could return tomorrow night against the Sens which would certainly help us out. We've all been missing him very much and especially at the point on the power play. Gonch is clutch, ok. He wears an "A"! Also, I wanted to mention that Nate Guenin has been doing a good job stepping up. Alwyas liked him, especially what I saw from him in the preseason. Hopefully Max Talbot will be back tomorrow as well. Having the two of those guys back will really change the game I think- for the better- of course.
And now for the most adorable thing to grace your computer screen in a while...
The Salvation Army's "Project Bundle-Up"
The Pens and Dick's Sporting Goods helped kids pick out new winter garbs and there are glorious pictures available. This is a great idea and is so exciting for the kids. It's a great event.
Bill Guerin looks kinda hott in that picture, not gonna lie!
Sid looks so natural with the kids. Love it.
It's nice to see some faces that have been missed this season, like TK.
Here's the video from the event.
