START THE DAY Good morning everyone! After playing eight of their last nine games at home, the Pens have traveled to New York City to play the Rangers at Madison Square Garden tonight at 7:30 p.m. Despite playing last night, Pittsburgh is scheduled to hit the ice at 11 a.m. for morning skate at Chelsea Piers, the Rangers practice facility. It's my first real game day of the season (my last trip was an afternoon game), so I'm excited to bring everyone all the updates.
I watched the Beyonce documentary "Life Is But A Dream" the other night after Game of Thrones premiered (incredible show - do any of you watch it?), which sparked me into listening to Jay-Z this week. I want to start the blog with an older song of his, a collaboration with Coldplay's Chris Martin: "Beach Chair." Best line of the song: "Life is just a dream and you really don't want to wake up." That's how I feel about the streak the Penguins have been on. Enjoy.
