Just wanted to say thanks for the numerous kind words about our crowd. It's absolutely amazing sitting in that building. Every game feels like the playoffs!

Someone here said this was a boring game...'Zig66' or something? Anyways, I don't know how you could call it that. I thought it was exciting, and not just because the home team won. It had a bit of everything. Big saves on both ends, crazy scrambles, a scrap or two.

It was just missing some very notable superstars. Without your stars these teams look like a good match. Add those two guys in and this score would be very, very different. Penguins took some control from the end of the first and for a lot of the second.

Neal looked real dangerous out there for some shifts.

I liked how we moved Burmistrov to wing. Gave him some more room out there. And he's terrible on face-offs, lol.

I was concerned when Hainsey went off with an upper-body because most here consider him to be our most reliable d-man.

Some bad calls and non-calls both ways.

Pavelec had to stand on his head several times.

MAF's post-to-post speed is great.

And yeah our PP sucks. Seems like they have no plan.

And yes our crowd is loud. It's like a mini-compressed Montreal.

While I can't speak for all of Pens Nation...speaking personally, I'm jealous of your crowd. Our barn is like a funeral parlour 99% of the time.

I agree, us Pens fans have the quietest, most boring crowds. We don't try to get into the opposing goalie's head. We rarely taunt the other teams players.

Our fanbase, though loyal, sucks lol

Congrats to WPG on the win. Deserved and earned it.

Definitely not a boring game, rather the opposite really! Congrats on the win and it's good to see hockey back in Winnipeg.

How can we be loyal if we're texting?
