The Cult of Kessel by @Nick422

12:00:00 PM 0
As she skated down the ice, down 2-1, on Wednesday night (Thursday morning?) the difference between silver and gold was on her stick.  Amanda Kessel may have felt the pressure but as she fired her wrister glove side, beating Shannon Szabados, to tie the shoot out at 2-2, she showed zero signs of nerves.


While the country was watching around 2am Eastern time, the United States of America's women's hockey team broke the Canadian's streak. The stick of Amanda Kessel was a large reason why. Only two places celebrated more than the rest of the country: Madison, Wisconsin and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Does the Regular Season Even Matter? by @disgruntledbill

12:07:00 PM 0
The WBS Pens have dropped all three games of their three in three this weekend. This is the first time the team has managed to look truly mediocre this year. The Pens lost to the Amerks 12-3 (yes seriously) in a humiliating game. Then the Pens lost to the Comets  (4-3 OT). This was especially problematic because Pens fans were upstaged in WB by a rowdy bunch of Vikings from Utica…who chanted UTICA for 2.5 hours and were louder than anything else in the building. To round things out the Pens were run out of Allentown  Sunday night (4-1 L). The only part of the game worth watching was when Tux scored a goal in the mascot game between periods. All in all Tux is a world class heel, so we have that going for us which is nice.

Casey DeSmith played in all 3 games this past weekend. 


Before the team turned into an unrecognizable dog pile, the Pens were competing neck and neck with the Phantoms for first place in the division and were making noise to have the best record in the league. Only the Marlies and the Moose had better records than the Phantoms and Pens prior to this week, so having the best winning percentage this season was not outside the realm of possibility.   
Wining the NHL’s President’s trophy seems to sometimes matter, at least if you’re not the Caps. Since 2000, 4 NHL teams have won the President’s Trophy and have gone on to win the Stanley Cup. But what about in the AHL?
