Amazing what a few days will do to the psyche of a team…
I really expected the Pens to have a chance to ’steal’ a game at the Joe. I really thought the youth and playmaking of the wunderkinds would have allotted to a couple of goals.
Boy was I wrong.
Detroit has totally dominated the Pens in every stretch of the word. The Wings are just so good in transition, as well as making great plays from literally nothing. When it seems that this team is beginning to run around in circles, BAM, not only does a play emerge, but it results in a goal. They just know how and when to pounce on an opponent.
And with this team filled with many ‘vets’, fans are just waiting to see the ball drop on them. However, someone comes out of the woodwork, and makes an impact. Once someone leaves, some late round draft pick will take over and step in like the chemistry NEVER changed.
Pittsburgh should be happy to be at home, and be able to make the last change, as well as get the fans onto their side. They need this big time.
See what happens tomorrow. Will we get a sweep, or will Pitts make a series out of this.
BTW – Islander fans, there will be a Lighthouse Meeting tonight. Here are the details, courtesy of the Islander web site:
The time to support the Lighthouse at Long Island is now!
The Lighthouse project, the exciting redevelopment of the 150-acre Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum site from a parking lot to a vibrant destination, has its second Public Scoping session at 7 p.m. on May 27. It will be held at the Nathan L. H. Bennett Pavilion at Town of Hempstead Town Hall, One Washington Street, Hempstead.
These sessions are open to the public and anyone interested may enter for consideration their comments regarding possible impacts of the project.
We need you to join us in making the Lighthouse a reality so we can all start to experience the countless benefits of the project.
I hope to make it… See you there!
