Here are a few interesting highlights from last Thursday's game against the Carolina Hurricanes:
- the crowd total was once again 17,132; the Mellon Arena's 72nd consecutive sell-out!
- it was Marc-Andre Fleury's 80th win
- overshadowed by Crosby and Malkin's benchmarks last week, Miroslav Satan reached a benchmark as well last week with 350 career assists
- According to KuklasKorner, everytime the Staal brothers face-off against each other, a Gatorade is up for grabs; and from Thursday's stats, it appears Eric owes Jordan 2 Gatorades (Jordan was 4 / 6)
- the Penguins (Max Talbot, Pacal Dupuis, Tyler Kennedy, Eric Godard, and Paul Bissonnette) were out delivering Pizza Hut pizzas once again this year for those waiting in line to purchase Student Rush tickets
- the three stars of the game were (1) Sidney Crosby, (2) Evgeni Malkin, and (3) Max Talbot
- and, of course, BizNasty's fight against LaCouture!!
