In Honor of Tonight

We're playing the New York Islanders tonight, the first of eight meetings this year.
It's only fitting we show this clip that was recently added to YouTube.
The extended highlights of Game 7 back in 1993. Glenn Healy plays out of his mind, and Barrasso gives up a Tom Fitzgerald-esque goal to Benoit Hogue. Sickening.




We received some encouraging news about the slots license, as Derek pointed out in a moonlight post last night. The pieces are falling into place; slots license is awarded on December 20th.

As Derek stressed, tonight's game is an important one. The Pens shouldn't lose this game. In fact, they should win handily.

You seriously just brought back all the anger, pain, and hatred i had from 13yrs ago...i hate glenn healy to this day. And the Isles are my least fav team b/c of that series. Well lets inflect some pain on them 2nite!

Adam linked me to this a few nights ago and I am still mad at him hahhaa... The memories of this game are foggy to me, but wow... how bad was Tom Barasso... A glen helay.. wow... does anyone realize that if the pens with this series and beat the candians.. which would of been Mario vs Roy and the whole nation of canada... the stanely cup finals would of been Mario vs. Wayne... I'd still be talking about that series... I may have to write a whole column on it... anyway go pens...

Big time character tester tonight.. esp if they get down early..

Go Pens.

Fleury will start it net tonight in a game that we need to win and show that we're not as bad as we've played.
