Subway Sandwich of the Game...


Pens 6 - Blue 3

Well it's official the Pittsburgh Penguins are 1-0 when Janne is on their roster. Janne did not have the breakout game we all hoped he would, but he has been practicing with this team for one day so we need to give him time to get some chemistry... One thing that we all noticed due to the shameless subway advertising was the physicality of the North American game is no biggy for Janne, as he won the prestigious Subway Sandwich of the game (he also had a good hit in the 1st period by the blues' bench that was really good)... Anyways there will probably be some pictures up tomorrow which we will post, but all in all it was a good night, Janne got a lot of face time on the camera, and got a solid amount of time in the 1st and 2nd period, so the "Great Depression" is seemingly over for the time being and we are moving into an era of great prosperity...

EDIT: Janne is -1 currently but the goal wasn't his fault... and all in all this was the most complete game the pens have played this season

Kevin's Edit: 
Tonight the Pens played  their second complete game with their first being the Carolina game. Satan had a nice game with 1 goal and 2 assists. We finally seen Janne in a Pens uni. Janne, as he wasn't a force on the offense as we had hoped, I'm sure better days are ahead. Pessi did have  a couple of nice hits along the boards during the first and second periods. We are not not sure where he will fit in right now, just hope the brass gives him a chance to practice and get use to his new diggs. So now we wait till Thursday to see the continued improvement of Janne. Oilers better beware Janne and the Pens are 1-0...

After the game Pessi was informed that he goes back to the WBS, because Pens will play their next game not until next Thursday. And same doom(?) for Minardi too...

Update: "Pittsburgh placed Pascal Dupuis on the injured list with an undisclosed ailment and recalled forward Janne Pesonen from the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (AHL)..." Minardi's doom have not been confirmed yet.

I kinda of figured this stint for Janne and Minard might be a short lived one since they were both called up due to injuries. As long as he is getting looks by management that is the main thing.
