and third series we lead 3-0. Thats an amazing feat for sure. The game last night, seemed to just drown everyone in the Wachovia Center in their tears except for the Pens. It would be awesome to see another sweep this post-season, and move on to the finals for one of the most anticipated matches of the last couple of years. Two hard-working blue collar towns facing off in the rink, Detroit vs. Pittsburgh.
Although these two teams are riding high with confidence, only one can win, and I honestly believe that the Pens have the talent to shut down or atleast slow the Zetterberg line down. It’s going to be tough because of how well skilled Detroit is. The only thing I believe suspect are their goalies(Osgood/Hasek), and they small defense.
I just hope we can bring another championship to a town that is riddled with winners. I’ll exclude the Pirates because there not going to be winners for a long time(unless you move them to Triple A). But the Steelers and Penguins are winners, and there is nothing better to have championships in two different sports, within years of each other.
It just changes the city, and everyone is much more personable and alive, we can all relate to at least on thing in this world, and for very brief moments at time time, we can all adapt and get along with each other. I really don’t even mind the commute into the city(1hr and 30 minute drive here from Greensburg) when DVE rocks the information about the Pens and the things that they say during the times of their games and after games.
On the topic of DVE, I like Mike Prisuta, as a Journalist, he often brings different aspects to his writings and he actually has a personality that shines through on the Air. I guess thats why he’s on the radio. Yes this went off topic, but Go Pens, heres to making a run at Lord Stanley’s Cup!
