Pens lose to Canucks

Canucks 3 - Pens 1

Suffering their first regulation lost in 9 games, the Pens lost to the Canucks 3-1.

What was being hyped as the showdown between Pens captain Lip and Vancouver's G/tender Roberto Luongo lasted a less than 5 mins when Luongo left the game with what is being reported as a groin injury. Canucks back-up G Curtis Sanford and son was called to action, but there was little action by the Pens.

The game started with some buckshot as Cookie Monster sent a Canuck player ass over tin cup, when it was all said an done after a few fights. Cookie's alumni game was over quicker that is had started(25 secs into the game).

From there on Vancouver played a very solid road game with 2 goals Pavol Demitra and a goal from Daniel Sedin.

The Pens tried to pull some of their old magic and wait to the last period to rev it up and it almost looked they would pull it off with a Early 3rd period goal by Big Daddy Zigomanis beating Sanford just 22 secs into the period.

That was the first regulation lose for the Pens in 9 games. They are winless in their last 2 home games losing to the Wild 2-1 in a SO.

Ugly and the Lip were held scoreless for the second time in three games.

I know he was only on the time clock for less than 3 secs, but Cookie gave me more entertainment today than the rest of the team did for the other 59 mins and 35 secs.
