A secret lies with Ken Wregget.
2-0 all time in Game 7's in Mellon Arena.
For the love of God, get Ken Wregget in the building on Wednesday.
And have him put on a Pens shirt.
 
About nine million thoughts running through everyone's mind. We're there, too.

How many times can we hear it:

Canadiens won the first game in the Civic arena.
Canadiens won the first game in the Civic arena.
Canadiens won the first game in the Civic arena.
Canadiens won the first game in the Civic arena.
Canadiens won the first game in the Civic arena.
 
Only way to supplant this Canadiens/Mellon Arena curst is to start a vicious internet rumor that Mario is the actual father of all of Jacque Martin's kids.
 
Unpleasant memories of 1993 and 1996 dance in your head.

Basically everything points to Montreal pulling this off.
 
Some Pens fans may jump ship. Some will begin to reason with losing.
Some will blindly guarantee a Penguin win just because.
 
Truth is, to each their own.
Game 7's make people do crazy things.  It can completely destroy your mind.
 
The only thing we can take from our experiences last year is how not to think.
 
Remember the arrogance of Detroit fans last year?
Go read The Chief's gameday from last year.  We ain't linking it.
 
But do you remember the fear that Washington felt?
Go read a few Capitals blogs from last year's Game 7 with Pittsburgh.
And go read the blogs from this year for the Montreal Game 7.
 
 
The only way we are going to approach this game is simple.
It's one game at the Mellon for the right to move on.
It is finding the right balance of fear and confidence.
 
We know we're not the only Pens fans that can rattle off every Game 7 the Pens have played since we've been alive.
Embrace this Game 7 for the theater it is.
 
We are pumped as shit for this game.
Nothing to be afraid of.  Nothing to be tense about.
The Mellon Arena owes the Pens a bounce or two.
 
It is going to be one hell of a time.
Blog may be going dark until Wednesday Gameday post.
