It's not every game you see Big Georges pot the insurance goal on a breakaway.
The three stars tonight were actually a pretty good indication of the sort of game it was, with Laraque named No. 2 and the suddenly hot Jarkko Ruutu the first star.
The Islanders were close on the shot count, but really didn't come to play. And I believe the win puts the Pens in top spot in the conference.
It's been a rainy night in Pittsburgh, but Seth Rorabaugh from the Post-Gazette did his best to play host and show us around the 'new' stadium district. The Pirates and Steelers have had their new homes for a while now, and you really get the sense hockey fans here are excited for the new building in 2010.
The city actually just demolished an old hospital where the new building will go, and we had a good look at the rubble across the street from Mellon Arena. (Where they also happened to be shooting scenes for a movie tonight.)
This is definitely a Penguins town at the moment, at least in the NFL's off-season, and it's been great to see. Thanks to the fans that stopped by to see us way up in the top of Section D.
