First things first.
To all the anonymous Caps fan trolls that inevitably lurk on TSCS any time the Pens play the Caps: if you don't have anything nice to say, DON'T SAY ANYTHING AT ALL. Look, it's fine if you hate our team (because, BELIEVE me, we loathe yours), but I will not tolerate any insults aimed directly at us simply because we are Pens fans.
I and 99.999% of the Friends are sick of it. If you violate The Friends' Zone policies, your comment will be deleted.
The funny thing is that we've actually had friendly rivalries in The Friends' Zone with fans of just about every other team in the Eastern Conference, as well as some from the Western Conference, too. We've even had cool Flyers fans show up here, and they're supposed to be the bad ones! In truth, we welcome the friendly rivalries here. (Go back to any post where we've faced the Red Wings for proof.) So if you're a mature Caps fan who can handle it, you're more than welcome to join us for some fun.
Just so you know, I get an email after every single time a comment is left - even ones left on the 2 year old "Sid v Alex: The Fashion Files" post that I didn't even write - so I'll know about any comment you post. Besides, there are plenty of Caps blogs where your opinions will be valued, so please - grow up and stop wasting your time spewing your bile here.
Now onto more important things.
The new aggressive style of play that the Pens are implementing under interim Head Coach Dan Bylsma looks really good so far. (How great has it been to see the Boys playing strong for all 3 periods?!) They'll need to keep it up today against the Capitals, with one minor adjustment: they're going to need a strong defense in front of the Flower, mostly because of A-hOle™. It's worth noting, however, that A-hOle™ is third in scoring again. Siddo is 3 points ahead of him and back in the #2 spot, and Geno is on top leading A-hOle™ by a full 11 points.
