The Pens made their first visit to the dumpster of Joe Louis Arena last night. They had a 3-1 lead late in the game and let it slip away, and eventually lost in overtime. Normally we would go and recap period by period events but we aren't gonna do that this time. Instead we are gonna take a different route and try to explain to the degenerate in this fan base that are acting like the world is coming to an end.
So before the game ended tweets started appearing like "This team is a joke" and other things along those lines. Then the Pens lost and it just got worse. Whether it was on twitter or the special needs people on the Die Hard Pittsburgh Penguins Fans group on facebook, people were losing their damn minds. And for what? A random game in Detroit in October? Get real. The Penguins have played 6 games. 6. SIX. 6. SIX. S. I. X. You got that? 6 games in an 82 game season. If you are drawing your conclusion on what the Pens season is gonna look like based on a random game in Detroit in October well:
You're probably gonna be completely wrong in your assumption and you'll wind up looking like a jackass. To reiterate. The Pens have played in just SIX games this season. They have a new coach and a completely different system. There are going to be some growing pains throughout the season and the Pens may struggle a little bit. We are here to tell you that its going to be okay. While some of you think the Pens should go 82-0-0 then go 16-0 and win the Stanley Cup well, once again:
This might be hard for some of you to fathom but the Pens aren't gonna go 82-0-0 and 16-0-0 to win the Stanley Cup. This isn't NHL 15. You can't quit the game and go back and start over just so you win. It doesn't work like that believe it or not. An NHL season is a marathon. Not a sprint. That why the cup wasn't handed out last night even though 96% of Pens fans acted like it was. Games like the one in Detroit last night are good for a team. Again. That might be hard for some people in this degenerate fan base to understand. It's about being ready for April. Not game 6 out of 82. No team has ever won the cup without facing a little adversity. The Pens are going to be just fine. They may struggle, they may lose a few here and there, they may blow a game or two but again. It's October. The Pens still have 76 games in front of them to work things out, grow into and learn the new system, and become a better team. The world isn't ending folks. Just sit back, watch the games, and try not to lose your mind over a game in October.
Pens head to Nashville tomorrow night.
