We won the second part of the Stanley Cup series on Wednesday, 6-2 against the Washington Capitals.
Yes, I’m talking about hockey.
It was a seven-game stretch with both teams playing to their full potential. Lots of torn up ice covered both rinks. Yet the Pens pulled ahead in the end and won.
Yes, I’m still talking about hockey.
Even more incredible was that the Pens won both series on an away game in hostile territory, with the home team cheering --first the Flyers and then the Capitals– only for the Pens to take the game away. Then they shook hands and shared hugs and left with such a wonderful feeling knowing they were moving ahead.
So now we will play the next team – Carolina Hurricanes. They are the last team to compete against to win the Eastern Division before meeting the Black Hawks from the Western Division for the Stanley Cup Finals. It will be the BATTLE OF THE BIRDS!
Er, wait. Oh, yeah. We might go against that other team from the West. What was their name? Red Dings? Bed Wings? Wed Rings?
Hee-hee! Buck is so going to slam me about this!
Whatever . . . GO PENS!
