It's a great day for hockey! Your Pittsburgh Penguins, finally, begin their quest for the Cup. The puck drops in Philthedelphia this afternoon as the Pens faceoff against their interstate rivals, the Cryers. It's a chance to exact some revenge as the Pens try to wipe the the memories of their 1st round playoff exit from their minds and begin a new season. These are the keys to the game. 1)Don't get sucked into playing the Cryer's type of game Stick to the game plan. Play Penguins hockey! 2)There were 2 different Penguins' defenses in that Philly series last spring. One looked like swiss cheese, full of holes. The other was invisible. Wipe the slate clean and don't forget to play defense, too. Tighten up, D! 3)Reigning MVP Evgeni Malkin is already in mid-season form as he was tearing up the KHL. Captain Sidney Crosby hasn't played in real game action since last spring and is totally healthy for the first time in months. Here's a chance to get them both in gear. The Pens need to come out and start both today's game and the strike-shortened season, guns-a-blazin'. Finally, it's time to cue the Crue! Go out and score Goals, Goals, Goals! Let's Go Pens!!!
