So much going on for the Pens these days.  They’ve been a busy bunch.  They have a couple days until their next game on Friday, so hopefully a couple are getting some much needed rest.

  • The Captain may not be playing right now, but Sidney Crosby is doing his good deeds still.  He was named a Youth Olympic Games Ambassadorfor the first edition of the Winter Youth Olympic Games in Innsbruck from 13 to 22 January 2012.  The Pens website said he isn’t attending so this doesn’t mean he won’t be back by playing by then.
  • Rookie Simon Depres got punked a little bit today.  His street clothes were hung from the rafters at Consol.  Marc-Andre Fleury has some advice for the young rookie.  For some reason I have a feeling MAF may have had something to do with them being up there:

It’s bizarre.  He should just put them in his locker instead of hanging them up there.  We’ll show him where his locker is, there are hangers in the locker, so he doesn’t have to go through the trouble of putting his clothes up there.

  • James Neal aired his frustration on twitter with the stupid people and their stopping at a yield sign.

Why does everyone stop at a yield sign when merging onto the highway. It kills me every morning.

  • Ben Lovejoy was back in the lineup last night against the Blackhawks but he was tweeting his appreciation to those that helped him during hi bout with a broken hand.

Jay Caufield, @train_esi, and Pascal Dupuis for tying my skates when I only had one usable hand.

  • So it looks like Geno is taking up the trumpet.  It’s good to be well rounded I suppose.

  • The Pens are doing their own version of the HBO series 24/7 as a continuation of last year.  It’s pretty solid and still gives you great insight to the behind the scenes of the players and franchise.  It’s called ‘In the Room’.  Below you will find Episode part 1.  For the rest visit the Penguins website.
