The Moose is my favorite former Penguin, but I'm afraid he's gonna get eaten alive tonight.
I have a question. Is it ok to wear my Hedberg (Pens) jersey to the game tonight, or is that being a bad fan?
Wear it. Everyone loves the Moose. He's a stand-up guy.
Wear the Moose jersey, he did well here for us so he deserves the love.
Good story about young Moose for you though. I worked with the man, the myth, the puck off the head playoff game coaching legend EJs son Joe a few years back. And he and I were talking about the team of course and he mentioned a good story about Johan when he was here. It was after some party the team had that Joe left early and had taken his dad, EJs, car home. Now for those of you know that know Upper St. Clair it has it's nicer communities that have the grand entrance to them and what not. Upon getting to the entrance where he had to put in a code, swipe something or what ever Joe notices a taxi stopping behind him and someone stumbles out.
That person was Johan who was apparently smashed beyond belief. So Hedberg spots the car, thinking EJ was inside. He walks over to the car yelling for EJ, but Joe looks out the window instead explaining that he's EJs son and what not. Johan just looks at him and starts to walk away towards his house, Moose was renting someones house in the community for his stay in Pittsburgh mind you.
So Joe drives on to his house and pulls in the driveway. After getting out and before going into his house Joe looks back to see Johan trudging across the neighborhood just charging through peoples yards, running over bushes and what not.
This isn't the greatest story and I'm sure others have better ones but to me the very thought of a couple looking out their window late at night to see some young kid walking through their flower bed is pretty good. I can see the woman asking 'Honey, who is that man?' The man looks up only for a moment, recognizes who it is and goes back to watching TV 'Oh that's just the Penguins new goalie who's on a tear for us. He'll be fine.'
The Moose is a stand up guy....who likes to have a good time to.
Thrashers looked extremely strong against the Caps last night.(without Kovalchuck)
I'm a little nervous about tonight, but I think the Pens can pull it off.
If anything, last night could've helped us. That type of win is talked about in the locker room. The Pens will know what the Thrash did & <should> be prepared for this one. Trap games happen when you underestimate an opposing team.
Anyways.. it's always a battle for the Pens so why would tonight be different? I'll guess 4-3 Pens.
Build from center. That's the one mistake the Thrashers have made. Their wings have always featured at least 1 star, and their defense is actually coming along nicely. Lehtonen was a lights out kind of goalie a few years back... but with Savard out, they are without a doubt the weakest team in the league down the middle.
If anyone has time, please hit the Heidelberg sign on 79 and do some....redecorating. I hope the Moose gets a nice ovation because he was great for the Pens especially during the 2001 playoff run. After that warm welcome, I hope he forgets how to stop hockey pucks.
