    This team is looking awfully good right now...

    Fifth straight win. They are 7-1-1 under new coach Dan Bylsma. Getting the mojo back. Now have a 3 point cushion between them and 9th place. Only one point behind Montreal for 5th seed! The game against Washington on Sunday should be a war. Ovechkin didn't play tonight, but I can't imagine that he would miss a game against the Pens.

    Excellant! I love Penguin playoff hockey.

    Crush your enemies, see them driven before you, hear the lamentations of their women.

    Yeah, for a while there it wasn't looking good. To go from the Stanley Cup finals to out of the playoffs entirely would have been awful. Now, it looks like this team should not only qualify for the playoffs, but they could make some noise once they get there. The proverbial "team no one wants to play."

    They're flying right now Ruthless. The coaching change/signings really seemed to give
    this team a fresh start and a new energy. I'm looking forward to this game against the
    Capitals as sort of a measuring stick kind of a game. Ovechkin has owned them recently
    and it would be great to see the Pens come out of there with an Ovechkin smack down
    as well as a win.

    Could you imagine a Pens-Caps playoff series? We owned them in the playoffs back when Gonchar was still in Washington, but there is a whole new intensity now. I can't think of another rivalry in any sport with as much vitriol between teams that are not even in the same division.
