Pens make it a series

How can you not win with Mike Tomlin in the house?

Whew! What a game. We don't think our hearts ever stopped pounding the entire time. Talk about being on the edge of your seat. This was basically a must-win for the Pens, and in the third period they came out victorious. You will now hear until game-time on Thursday that the last five Stanley Cup winners lost game 3 and that this is the exact position the Pens and Wings were in last year. The Pens win game 3 and we all know what happened in game 4. That was last year, this is now. You can't argue that the Pens are a much better team and have shown they can play with the Wings, whereas last year, well...not so much. This was not the best game the Pens could have played by any means, but two defensemen and Max Talbot stepped up big and sealed the win for the Pens.

It's now all about game 4. Win game 4 and the Pens are going back to Detroit with all the momentum and it's a best of three. Sounds pretty good, right? Of course the Pens can do it. But if you listen to the doubters, this is last year and the Wings are too scary. You can bet your money that the Pens aren't listening though. This may just be their year. Besides, no one ever said it was going to be easy. Hang on because we've got ourselves a series.

Thoughts up later.

Go Pens!
