@mariolemieux666 I thought TPB calling #16 "Darryl" was a sophisticated reference to Darryl Sittler (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darryl_Sittler), not a mistake.

@orby I thought Sid got his stick on it but would need to see it again. Does the league look at the goals again post-game? Sometimes I see the credit changed afterward.

This evening NPR's All Things Considered did a piece on NHL players playing in the KHL. It's a good topic, though not breaking news. Somehow (perhaps having to do wth the program being produced in DC) most of the piece centered on Alex Ovechkin and how dissatisfied he is with playing in Russia. The story link is below. Somehow the reporter couldn't discover that the reigning NHL MVP is in Magnitogorsk not having a bad time.

@NYinzer I'm hoping Russia wins. I've seen very few minutes of the matches, and none with Slovakia. How dangerous are the Slovaks?

Not sure why I'm still here after the end of the Pens season. It's only partly for playoff hockey comments. I have lurked through killer insect blog and Gladiator blog and the invention of a new hockey stat. This is an odd and interesting place.

 

Real (spam) email from NHL.com on Sunday - Subject: Hit the Course with the Latest Pittsburgh Penguins Golf Gear!‏ Ouch. Thanks, NHL.

 

I was at work earlier and didn't vote on the buttons, but I think it would be nice to have a ZFG button.

I was about to suggest a silver-lining exercise to lift the gloom, but then the phantom penalty.

 

Still: how about ... PK so far so good....

 @Ev0luTioN37 Thanks for the suggestions! I joined the Penguins Meet-up Group in DC today. They're meeting at The Mighty Pint for the game tomorrow. I also heard that Crystal City Sports Pub is a Pittsburgh-friendly sports bar, on the Virginia side of the river. Looking forward to trying different places during the playoffs. Go Pens!

Preparation in the Northern Viriginia/DC area: any recommendations on a sports bar/restaurant to watch Pens Game 1 on Wed.? Looks like they won't be on my NHL Center Ice....
