Penguins Fly at the Igloo!
Attribute it to the mojo at the Igloo or the raucous Pens fans, but whatever the case, the Penguins played a fantastic game at home last night with a 3-2 win. The game was exciting and action-packed to the end - exactly how a Stanley Cup Finals game shoud be! Pen's Captain Sid the Kid scored 2 goals and Adam Hall tipped in the third. Detroit looked like they might come back any minute to take it and saw another great performance from goalie Osgood. The Pens were throwing some wicked hits with the return of veteran D-man Darryl Sydor to the lineup. I hope they can keep up the energy and great defensive work in Game 4 on Saturday to make this a don't-miss series!
Of course, one of the highlights for me personally was the guest appearance of our own Alex Ovechkin during period breaks. Check him out with all his new bling! Ovie did a great impression of a cat and as always, had great comebacks for Mike Milbury, who hinted that the Great 8 needed a haircut. Dude, he got a haircut! Alex, this hockey mom thinks your hair looks fabulous. I love that despite your big salary, you still get it cut at the Hair Cuttery. And the new George Clooney do is working for you! Hockey moms and Caps fans world-wide are so proud of you. Don't worry - you'll be hoisting the Stanley Cup soon. In the meantime, be careful with your new trophies and don't take any lessons in transporting them from the Spokane Chiefs!
So this hockey mom is thinking about doing the Adult Learn to Play Hockey clinic. It's a very scary thought as I am quite lacking in my backwards skating abilities...but I'd really like a pair of those Easton pink gloves. I'll keep you posted on my progress!
