Game 3 of the series between the Pens and the Sens was intense. It’s got to be frustrating having the emotional advantage of the crowd, getting Danny Alfredsson back, and scoring the first goal. Yet, playing with the desperation that the Senators played with proved that the Penguins in this series can handle anything thrown at them. I’m a huge supporter of Conklin and having him start a game or two because he helped us get to where we were with Fluery out. But, Fluery has been absolutely playing out of his freaking mind as of late.

If and when the Penguins make it to the next round, I’m pretty concerned as to who we are playing against. It could be the New Jersey Devils or the New York Rangers depending on if Montreal wins their series. Either the Devils or the Rangers are both opponents I’m pretty afraid to see in any play-off series given the fact that the Pens always have an incredibly tough time with them.

On the other hand, no Gary Roberts in game 3. It’s a bit selfish of myself, but what he has shown the Pens at age 42 is awesome. That guy is as tough as nails, and am so glad to get him back at a vital time in the year!

has got to be one of the best bands I have recently discovered in a very long time.  They have captivated me from the moment I popped in the cd.  Their new album called “Fortress” is a screaming/break down laden/ heavy bass line tribute to what rock really should be.

The intricacies of the breakdowns/riffs, are mind blowing compared to the run of the mill bands that seem to be popping out albums faster than ever for their record companies to conform to the commercialism of this world today.

I have been frustrated lately with this kind of music, and I must admit, took a chance upon picking up their new cd in fear of it being more of the same.  I’ve heard their old stuff on Myspace (http://www.myspace.com/protestthehero) and was immediately drug in to the music upon it hitting my ears.  I was kind of worried that it was going to be a few songs heavy and the rest of it laced with boring unoriginal tracks, but upon the first go around was dead wrong.  From the way everything was produced to signing and playing their respective instruments, every single member of the band is as clean playing as the next.

I just couldn’t believe it, I have simply found a band so great,  among the mundane and simple.  Keep on rocking Protest the Hero.  Come to Pittsburgh, and I’ll gladly pay anything to come see you!
