General Manager Ray Shero left his mark on the Pittsburgh Penguins roster yesturday, now its time for head coach Dan Bylsma to Make the Run towards the Stanley Cup playoffs once again. GM Shero did not make the huge move adding a Marian Hossa, but made a couple of moves that should prove helpful in this stretch drive. The only problem is tonight we can't see Shero's moves in action, because Alexei Ponikarovsky (Poni) is stuck in Canada because of Visa problems. Should have used MasterCard.
Here are the highlights from February 12 and the PensUniverse recap.
My keys for tonight are really keys for the rest of the season.
- Forecheck - keep the pressure up, hit early and often.
- Power Play - set up, pick a spot, score, and celebrate
- Will Marc-Andre Fleury be rusty after getting screwed in the Olympics? Hopefully not.
Anyone else see the ratings from the game on Tuesday? FSN Pittsburgh drew a 11.73 rating, with over 134,800 households watching the game. Only Mario's return from retirement drew a better rating....wow!!!
