Who would have thought you could go to a nice little country like Sweden and turn into beasts?
Strangely, that is just what happened to the Sens this week as we got a real good look at what Hartsburg's team is going to look like this year. AND WE LOVE IT!!! 3 out of 4 points from the team that swept us from the playoffs last season and I can safely say the Pens don't want to see us again anytime soon. Yes, they got us in OT the first game but they paid for it big time in the rematch and Sid the Bib really wishes now that the Pens had resigned Ruutu.
The final scores were as follows:
Pens 4 - Ottawa 3 OT
Ottawa 3 - Pens 1
Gerber did not gain any supporters this week but Auld did, and Smith is now officially Stooli's new man-crush (sorry Brent). The fickle fans of Ottawa went from dread to elation in 24 hours but we now seem to have the team we've always wanted: maybe not the most talented but certainly no push overs. Even in defeat this year, I think we'll be proud of our boys!
Stooli is back with his first edition of the News and first time e-mailers rule, especially Jane who may have some explaining to do to her husband.
Grab the band-aids folks, this is going to be a whole different experience this season and it's gonna hurt them more then us!
WE'RE MADE OF DIRT!
