Pens Crush Islanders 7-3

-The Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the New York Islanders 7-3 last night at the final regular season game in the 41 year old Mellon Arena. Sidney Crosby scored a goal and recorded three assists. Bill Guerin scored two goals and recorded one assist. Bill Guerin's first goal was originally credited to Crosby, but Crosby told the ref that that the goal belonged to Guerin. The goal would have been Crosby's 50th of the season. What a great guy Sid is. He is a really classy guy. If Ovechkin was in that situation, I doubt he would say a word. Evgeni Malkin, Tyler Kennedy, Alex Goligoski, and Brooks Orpik each scored a goal. Malkin's goal was impressive as he intercepted a pass and went down the ice and scored a shorthanded goal. Marc-Andre Fleury made some impressive saves as he stopped 32 of 35 shots.

-The NHL announced that the 2011 All-Star Game will be held in Carolina. The Consol Energy Center was one of the contenders for the game.

-Next Game: At Atlanta Thrashers Saturday at 7:00.
