  • You know the Penguins are missing this guy. I can't say I feel bad for them. 
  • Since 2003, the Canucks are 4-0-1 overall against the Penguins including a 2-0-0 record in Pittsburgh. Yeah, these teams don't play eachother all that often.
  • The Canucks are 9-11-5 on the last games of road trips that are at least 3 games in duration. Just a funky stat to digest/sweat over.
  • Dan Hamhuis rested his foot on Tuesday but will play vs Pitts. Speaking of Hamhuis...this writer thinks it was well worth it for the Pens to send a 3rd round pick Philadelphia's way for the negotiating rights to Hammer prior to July 1st. He makes a good point.
  • "What we'd like to see from him is, obviously, [is his] mobility, but [also] that intensity, that grit, that heart, good gap, really assertive on the ice. That's what we're expecting from Keith." -Alain Vigneault after deciding Ballard will play against Pittsburgh. The Penguins game is going to be a physical affair. Being the bitter jackass that I am, I hope somebody runs Malkin. I hope they bang the bastard around all night. Speaking of that....
  • VIDEEEEOOOO

Ballard makes Crosby and Malkin his bitches:

NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

The slaughter of the Pens' 3rd string goalie:

Crosby vs Luongo, December 8, 2007

You're gonna get yours, Malkin, you dirty maggot!

GO CANUCKS! Finish this road trip in style!
