If you are a Penguins fan, or a Pittsburgh sports fan in general, the last Wednesday night game made you grin. The Pens crushed the Ottawa Senators 8-2 at the Mellon Arena on 12/23.
Malkin got the 4th hat trick of his career. Bill Guerin scored two power-play goals and had two assists – all within the 2nd period! Marc-Andre Fluery is a true athlete, though. Can you believe he had a total of 45 saves?! Without Fleury the score could have been 45-8. Just Kidding. All joking aside, this game would have been 9-2 but one Crosby/Malkin score was thrown out in the first.

Big Steelers game the same day, 1:00 PM at Heinz Field vs. Baltimore Ravens. It will be a busy traffic day in Pittsburgh! And a slow day for local businesses.
