RECAP: Preseason hockey. PENS WIN.

 
Not much to say about the game except that the Pens won, 4-1, and Jordan Staal scored two goals in the same game.  Cooke scored a goal.  Kennedy scored a goal.  The first two periods of this game rivaled a Rush concert as the most uneventful occurrence in the history of CONSOL Energy Center.  Then shit started happening.
 
Some quick thoughts…

This girl was so intense.  Banging on the glass in frustration after the Blackhawks scored.
 
2. Tyler Kennedy

2 goals.  Solid game.  Basically wore the "C" last night.
 
 
 
SOME NOTES

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-ZlIFpwZC8hQ/TmlCCqZ_0dI/AAAAAAABt2s/VSHBrFE4KsM/puck.pngIt sure felt good seeing Michalek on the ice.  Only problem was that he was basically in a babysitting role the whole game.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-ZlIFpwZC8hQ/TmlCCqZ_0dI/AAAAAAABt2s/VSHBrFE4KsM/puck.pngWe sure wish Eric Tangradi would score a goal or something.  Got fed a tidbit from Errey during the game that Tangradi is at the bottom of the list when it comes to potentially cracking the lineup.
 
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-ZlIFpwZC8hQ/TmlCCqZ_0dI/AAAAAAABt2s/VSHBrFE4KsM/puck.pngMatt Cooke saw his first action in a while and looked good, scored a goal.  He's still a hit away from being on Shanny's Corner.
