There Are No Words To Describe This Debacle

Penguins VS Bruins

Jumping Penguins


I can't even begin to describe the train wreck that took place inside of Mellon Arena today. It started off good for about the first 10 minutes of play and then the wheels came off. Therrien played musical chairs in the net with Fleury playing in the first and third period and Sabu playing in the second neither which looked rather sharp in the game both letting up 3 goals. There was mayhem at the end of the second period with Talbot dropping the gloves for a long fight Campbell and 2 seconds later Crosby mugged Brett McClean off the face off.


Talbot Fight


Crosby Fight


Crosby's little dance with McClean gave him 19 minutes in the sin bin, a 10 minute game misconduct, 5 minute major for fighting, 2 minute instigator, and a 2 minute unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. I don't know maybe this is what the Pens needed to get back on track this season, but after this game I see no reason why it is not time to push the panic button and do something whether it is trades or bringing guys up.

Here are the highlights of the game if you care to partake in this blood bath.
