Pens vs Sabres, February 17, 2013

 The Pens may have blown an early 2-0 lead but Marc-Andre Fleury stood up to a 17-shot 3rd period Buffalo onslaught, allowing Paul Martin's goal to hold up as the game winner.  Pittsburgh improved their road record to a very impressive 8-2-0.  Hopefully they'll take some of that magic back to Consol Energy Center as they prepare for a 3-game homestand starting Wednesday against the Flyers.  

I probably could have trimmed this post down a bit, but on a day where Sidney Crosby picked up three points against his frequent whipping boy, Ryan Miller, it seems appropriate to include 87 pics from the game.  Check them out after the jump.

Where the Buffalo sock pics roam.

We knew it would be tough to match the sock pic from our 2012 Buffalo trip, featuring Fleury, Duper, Knitting Lady, Martin, Sully, Neal and, of course, the sock.
But with the help of Bortuzzo, Jeffrey and Vitale, not to mention a few other guys pictured below, we made a pretty good go of it this year and there is certainly no disappointment in the results.
Might have to make this Buffalo adventure an annual thing.
Check out the rest of the photos after the jump.

Bye Bye, Benny.

Just got the news about Ben Lovejoy being traded to Anaheim for a draft pick.  He's a great guy and we'll miss him.  Good luck, Rev.

Pens vs Caps Feb 3, 2013

Pens fans haven't had that many chances to celebrate following a regular season game in Washington, D.C. in recent years but we got to do just that today after Chris Kunitz picked up a hat trick (and possibly a 4th goal that was credited to Paul Martin) to lead Pittsburgh to a 6-3 win over the stumbling Caps.

(Update: Kunitz has been credited with the goal)

Knitting Lady and I wrapped up our own whirlwind weekend of hockey by joining our fellow Pens fans on the steps across from the Verizon Center and treating the departing Caps fans to a jolly good bit of jobbing.

Stick around below for some of our photos from the game, plus a video of the Kunitz hat trick goal.

Pens vs Devils Feb 2, 2013

Knitting Lady and I made it to our first game of the season today and were rewarded with the Pens first home win of the season, a 5-1 beating of the New Jersey Devils.  It also featured the first NHL goal by defenseman Robert Bortuzzo, whose celebratory lap by the bench is pictured above.

It's a quick turnaround not only for the team but for us as well, since we need to rest up before hitting the road to get to the game against the Caps at Verizon Center tomorrow.  So I'm just going to toss up a bunch of pics from today's game below.
