--Continuing an unreal week of hockey, the Pens beat the Flyers, 5-4, in a dramatic shootout at the Igloo. Kid Crosby continued his dominance of the Flyers, leading the way with two goals. Geno Malkin extended his scoring streak with his 6th goal of the season, Matt Cooke added his first, and Dany Sabourin was perfect in the shootout. The Pens are now 10-4-2 and just four points out of the conference's top spot.

I find it funny that they have Pitt as high as #2 in some polls, but Lunardi has them as a three seed.

What's even more laughable is that Doug Gottleib doesn't even have them ranked.

I think that ball would be worth more $$ if they were all on different balls.
