Taste good TK?

We couldn't resist starting out the post with this great picture of Tyler Kennedy. Why he is licking his hockey stick we have no idea, but it obviously tastes very good. No word on whether that helped his game at all. We're also going to give credit of that picture to Seth over at Empty Netters and the person on who spotted it. We just borrowed it for this post.

Geno continues to dominate everyone else in the NHL but he's still reluctant to talk about himself. He should get to 100 points soon but he doesn't like to talk about it. He agreed to answer one question about it for PG's Shelley Anderson and he said, "I try because it's good for me, good for [the] team, I play with good guys." When asked if reaching 100 points a season or leading the NHL was something he aimed for he playfully said "one question!" before saying "I'm not thinking about 100 points or trophies." What a humble guy.

You probably heard last week that recently acquired Eric Tangradi's favorite team was the Flyers because he is from Philly. Over at the PG they have a nice article on him and his Philly roots. Should be exciting to see how he turns out.

Remember John Curry? He has tied Sebastien Caron for the top spot on the WBS franchise's all-time wins list with 48, surpassing Marc-Andre Fleury, Dany Sabourin, Andy Chiodo, and Rich Parent. That's definitely something to be proud of and at this rate he'll be a great backup to Fleury in the near future. We definitely liked what we saw when he played for the Pens earlier this season.

Let's Go Pens!

We like John Curry a lot. Garon lost his first game against the Maple Leafs 5-4 we believe. He relieved Fleury against the Caps the last time they played them and played well, allowing no goals. We're not exactly high on Garon to say the least, especially for what they gave up for him. Hopefully Curry is able to step up in the near future.
