Oh, hey, what do the Isles and the Titanic have in common? Nothing, but there were more people on the Titanic than there were Islanders fans at the game.
There was excitment when the Pens traded for and signed Tomas Vokoun in the offseason. That excitement shifted to excrement after some less-than-solid performances from Vokoun in the early part of the season.
But against the Islanders, in this game, Vokoun showed what he can do.
He kept the Penguins afloat during a really rough patch in the first period. Getting out of the first only down 1-0 was huge because the Pens played like Amanda Bynes.
The Pens were able to right the ship. Sutter with another GWG. 11 straight in your mouth.
The Flyers are coming into town Sunday night.
It's a chance to kick them in their sac.
******** for the entire first period. Pens were outshot 97-3. Pens were skating in mud.
