Pittsburgh Penguins: Still soaring in NHL Eastern Conference
Despite a rash of key injuries (Kris Letang, Pascal Dupuis, Paul Martin) Pittsburgh continues to rule the East with a 40-15-4 record. Admittedly a little tired of the outdoor games, we hope both clubs survive what will be another game played on bad ice, in freezing cold weather, by million dollar assets. The Pens posted a 6-5 OT loss against the Montreal Canadians in their first post-Olympic game on Thursday. We are happy to be getting pucks here.
