First game not on National TV, maybe some of the pressure is off?
But Byslma is arguably (with Trotz, Tippett) the best coach in the league and the Jets have yet to implement even a basic defensive zone coverage that the 10 year old kids I coach were getting on my case about being too easy yet. That leads me to believe we will be outcoached. At least Jones is out, thank god, and Byfuglien is NOT paired with the worst defensive guy that is dressed for the first time this season(Oduya/Jones), actually has someone to cover for him. Kane missing is gonna hurt.
Pens win 5-2. Scheifele scores early, Pens get 5 in a row and Little scores a late one when nobody cares. At least that'll be closer than the home opener
I live by the iconic words of Vince Vaughan "I found that if you have a goal[ or expectations], you might not reach it. But if you don't have one, then you are never disappointed"
Pens are staying at the fairmont.
They are taking a bus to the arena
OMG that is hilarious! Saw a bunch of them today when I went to get a coffee at the Tim's in the Richardson Building. Musta been headed to the morning skate. Judging by the amount of AHL players I've seen over the past few years I expect to see a bunch of visiting players this year.
I can however kind of see why they would bus it. You don't want them walking down there with the fans headed to the game. They would never make it to the game with the autograph/ picture requests.
