10/20/09-Blues vs. Penguins: W 4-1

Is it time to get a little overconfident? The Penguins yet again dismantled their opponent and did it to a greater extent than in other recent games. The Penguins outshot the Blues 20-3 after the first period and generally were all over them for most of the game. The bad part is that Sergei Gonchar will be out for about six weeks after taking a hit from David Backes and injuring his hand/wrist.

Without Gonchar, we’ll see if the Penguins can keep the momentum going. If they can however, I’m thinking they haven’t played too many rough opponents so far. The Rangers are off to a good start but we all know they’re not in the same class as Pittsburgh. The Blues are a possible playoff team, but they’re very raw and young so they’re going to have ups and downs. I’m most interested in this Saturday versus the Devils, and early November matchups against the Ducks, Sharks, Bruins (2), and Devils again.
