WHY THIS WEEK DIDN'T SUCK -- Dec. 22-27

We actually do feel positive about this week. Believe it or not.

Here are five reasons why you need to stop complaining.

1.) Fleury got himself a badass shutout.

And he'll probably get a lot more, because he's kind of a beast.

2.) Ryan Whitney is back. Need we say more?


3.) We feel that this is the start of something greater. Over the past week, save for the Tampa Bay embarrassment, we've seen something in the Pens that we haven't seen in a damn long time. And that's effort. That's heart. That's making the other team work for what they get. We're going to hazard a guess and say that the rest of the season looks really, really good for the Pittsburgh Penguins. They've found the pieces of the puzzle, and if they can keep it up, it's solid all the way. Playing the way we played against the Habs means a lot of goals and a lot of wins. Maybe not all the time (see: Habs game) but a lot of the time.

4.) Tampa Bay still sucks. They need a miracle to make the playoffs. And can we just laugh at Steven Stamkos for awhile?

The man with his mouth open above Stamkos' head is also pretty clutch.

5.) 2009 is coming. We love New Year's and new beginnings, clean slates if you will. The Flyers are preparing for the New Year correctly by getting shut out by Columbus. Congratulations. Especially Steve Mason. Crank this shit.

So yeah. Things are looking up. Stop crying.

Zherdev v. Stamkos. The Goon Blogger is not amused.
