The Steelers’ Ben Roethlisberger threw for 340 yards and six scores and set an NFL record for touchdown passes in consecutive games in an awesome victory over the Ravens this last Sunday.
Mean Joe Greene’s #75 was also retired this last weekend during halftime. This legend of Pittsburgh got a great showing at the game and everyone was abuzz about this event on Monday.
And now onto the Pens!
They have had 2 shutouts in a row now against the previous reigning champs of the Stanley Cup, the LA Kings, and the Buffalo Sabres, because that’s what they get. We’re also in the middle of what may be another win tonight!
Fleury has been on a hot streak. Crosby and he made it on the lists this week for 2nd and 3rd NHL stars of the week. In this 4 game winning streak, the Pens have outscored opponents 19 to 3, and have gone 14–14 on the penalty kill (100%).
And the apple of all of our eyes Olli Maatta himself made quite the story after he found out a few weeks ago that he had a tumor, which news reports were saying had a 75% chance of being cancerous. While most might take a little break, Maatta opted to play hockey a few more weeks until his surgery, which culminated in what seems to be a safe removal of the tumor today. #OlliMaattaStrong
