The Pens lost, but please don’t despair.
They were so far down the list last year that to make it to the playoffs this year was in and of itself an astounding feat. You must look at it in terms of the big picture. They went above our expectations for them.
See, Pirates, we’re not saying you need to win a pennant or even have a winning season just yet, but my God if you could just play .500 ball, I’d slap each of you so hard on your backs your contacts would shoot out. Seriously.
Also, here’s something you don’t see every day: A goalie doing some checking.
And not just any checking, but some checking that looks like it might knock the teeth out of Ouellet.
And Lukey? Please go shave your skeevy beard.
(Translation: God, I hope so.)
