Pens fan here. What we've done lately has been more than just a streak imo. Ever since one of our writer's called the team out in the media and said the Pens were thinking about giving the "C" to someone else since Sid was out the Pens have been simply unbeatable. We're 20-4-1 since that article.
I still doubt we catch you guys though. We have to beat you in the two remaining matchups and imo it's likely you guys will take at least one of those games. Looking forward to Thursday though. The atmosphere in MSG if Sid comes back for that one is going to be intense. Nothing like playoff hockey before the playoffs even start, eh?
Impressive run. I doubt the article was anything more than a coincidence though. We actually had a similar run earlier in the season of 20-5-1. That seems like a distant memory now. I'll actually be surprised if the Pens don't take over #1 by the end of the year. If the Pens were hot and the Rangers went even 1-1-1 in the last 3, I might be singing a different tune.
Is it just me or is it super annoying that opposing fans post on our board...
For all you non-Rangers fans out there, keep your history lessons for your own board. Little tidbits and nuggets of info isn't going to make me say "Oh, golly gee...."
I mean no disrespect to any other poster in particular, but I do think its kind of annoying when other fans post here and be like "dont worry you guys have a good team" or "you guys are still going to finish." This team is playing the worst hockey of the season, and I don't think its helpful when people say stuff like that. But whatever, people have the freedom to post pretty much anything they want.
