Pens vs Blues, March 23, 2014



Marc-Andre Fleury had a chance to get real familiar with Blues captain David Backes Sunday.
In fact it was a tip-in by Backes that provided the only scoring of the day
as the top team in the Western Conference came into Consol Energy Center
and managed to push the Pens around a bit on their way to a hard fought 1-0 victory.
We were there and managed to get a few photos from the cozy confines of section 105.
Check them out after the jump.

Pens vs Lightning, March 22, 2014

Any game that ends with a Geno interview is a good game.
And any day spent watching hockey is a good day.
That's just what Knitting Lady and I got to do this past weekend
after a 3-month hiatus brought on by the Olympic break and a generally crappy schedule.
The Pens didn't disappoint in this one.
Sure, we have some key injuries,
but there were enough stars shining Saturday afternoon
to get the win against a Tampa team that is comfortably
ensconced in a top-3 spot in the Atlantic Division. 

So sit back and enjoy our pics from the game after the jump.

Pens vs Flames, December 21, 2013


The Penguins entered Saturday's game against Calgary with a few streaks going.
They had won six in a row, nine straight at home.
Sid had a nine game point streak.
Knitting Lady and I had our own 18-game regular season winning streak on the line.

Luckily the Pens played well enough to get the win and keep the streaks alive (though Ottawa would ruin that a few days later).

This one presented a great chance for us to see all the new guys who are getting their shot due to injuries and suspensions.  
This would be our first chance to see guys like Dumoulin, Sill and Samuelsson at the NHL level. 
And it would be our first look at Zolnierczyk and Conner since they joined (or returned to) the team.

It would also provide a good 1-game tryout for the Canon SL1 that KL got me for Christmas.

So there was plenty to be excited about.  Check out our photos after the jump.

Pens @ Blue Jackets, November 2, 2013


It was the second of back-to-back nights between these two teams.
Zatkoff got the start for the Pens.
For Columbus it was their backup McElhinney, who had played most of the game the night before after Bobrovsky defecated in his crease.
Probably the most excitement in this one came pregame when the security guard told us they don't allow fans to have signs larger than 8x10".  I'm guessing this was some kind of response to the Pens last visit when Pensblog Charlie signs filled Nationwide Arena.

Check out the pics after the jump.

Pens vs Blue Jackets, November 1, 2013


Replay may have shown that Geno's third period power play shot didn't cross the goal line, keeping him off the board and extending his goalless streak to seven games, but that didn't keep him from racking up two assists and earning first star of the game honors in the Pens 4-2 win over Columbus at CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh Friday night.

Check out our photos from the game after the jump.

New season sock pics.


Knitting Lady and I made a late decision to attend the game against Buffalo Saturday night and it paid off as the Pens posted a solid 4-1 win over the Sabres. We also got a fresh batch of sock pics with some of the new guys, including assistant coach Jacques Martin.  Joining him above are Maatta, Kobasew and Zatkoff.

Game photos are still to come.
