Rally Called for Tomorrow


Tomorrow is "Black and Gold Day"

The Pittsburgh Penguins, along with city and county officials, are organizing a rally for 5:15 tomorrow.
The rally will take place in front of the big screen outside Mellon Arena.
Inside the arena, there will be a white out for game three.

Hopefully there will be a large crowd outside and a loud one inside.
The Washington Capitals, with their sirens and horns and bells and whistles, are feeling pretty proud of their "Rock the Red" campaign.
Pens fans need to be just as loud and just as proud without the aid of airhorns and sirens.

Chris Kunitz will be fined, but not suspended, for crosschecking Varmalov yesterday.

Ilya Kovalchuk says that the Capitals will "easily make it to the finals."

Should the Pens ask to measure Ovechkin's stick?

An SI player poll says that Chris Pronger and Steve Ott are the NHL's dirtiest players.
Jarko Ruutu, Sean Avery and Scott Hartnell round out the top five.

The NHL is pretty happy with how Crosby and Ovechkin are performing.

Kris Letang is questionable for tomorrow.


"I think you will enjoy this story on a dedicated grandmother. … She had a heart attack. At the hospital, all she was worried about was missing Penguin games. She actually bawled because she knew she would have to miss a few. … For game one we had a little Penguins playoff party in the hospital. She insisted on getting off her oxygen and out of her nightgown so that she would wear her Guerin shirt. Here is a picture of her room all decorated and her watching the game."



This is a race to four.
Washington has to win two more. We have to win four.

Go Pens.
