"Team Players" Beat "One Man Band"

The Pens have extended their winning streak to ten games now with a 2-1 win over the Capitals. It was a great showing by the Pens without two of their key players in Geno and Tanger. Sid assisted on both goals and had an empty net chance, but he was robbed by the goal post. Flower stood strong in the net and the Pens PK came up big after giving up the first goal to Ovechkin. Interesting enough NBC announcers said they were tried of this Sid and Ovechkin debate. Milbury said there is none and Sid was the better of the two. As the title above they said Sid was a team player and Ovechkin was a one man band making Sid the better hockey player. There you have it and said by Milbury himselft, shocker isn't it. It feels good to be a Pens fan and hopefully they keep this streak going. Geno and Tanger getting healthy is the next step and would put the Pens in even better position.
