Ohhhh, HAT trick. I thought you said PANT trick. That’s how my jeans ended up on the ice. Could I have them back?
Nealmobile had a hat trick last night! It was the second of his career and first with the Penguins, for a whopping 37 goals on the season.
Goal #1: Stand There, Look Pretty
James does a great job of being open in the right spot. But look at that passing! Sid, no-look to the outside to Geno cross-ice in the slot… I weep, it’s so beautiful.
Goal #2: Yaaaaaaaaaaay!
We heart rebounds. Listen to the fan yell when he scores, “Yaaaaaaaaay!” That’s either Kermit the Frog or me.
Goal #3: If You Just Smile
… and have a wicked wrist shot. Look at him trying not to smile.
Post-Game: Aw, Shucks.
Some other guys played pretty well last night too, in the Penguins 8-4 win over Winnipeg. TK had 2G, Geno had 2G/3A, Crosby had 4A. Pucks were flying and TK came thisclose to a hat trick of his own.
Pittsburgh is one point behind the NY Rangers, who take on Detroit at home tonight. Go WINGS! (Haha, what?!) The Penguins host the Predators tomorrow – lets hope it brings them a shot at the #1 spot in the Eastern Conference! I’m holding on to the Penguins/Capitals first round dream (and bank account).Tags: Evgeni Malkin, james neal, Pittsburgh Penguins, Sidney Crosby, Tyler Kennedy
