Before the Pittsburgh Penguins could wrap up their calendar year and head off into a much needed week off, the team had to ward off the Montreal Canadians. It was an exciting game and I was fortunate enough to have been able to watch it live inside PPG Paints Arena. The contest would end up being yet another come from behind (and overtime) 4-3 victory. The team finished off the month of December with a record of 12-1-2.
Once the game was over and the gear was thrown into carts to be washed and sanitized, our boys went their separate ways to relax, unwind, and recover from their various illnesses and injuries.
One can only imagine the kind of night that was enjoyed. Talk about starting the new year in style.
