After last nights collapse against the Flyers, I figured it would nice to have a little chuckle. I am sure that many of us caught this little "oops" this past Sunday against the Florida Panthers, but I thought I would take advantage of the situation and have a little fun at Scott Clemmensen's expense. It is unfortunate for the downtrodden Panthers that Tomas Vokoun would have to sit out for the extra, extra stanza of the game with a back injury, but I am sure that Pens fan's ears perked up when the news of Clemmensen limbering up on the bench was announced. (2-6 in the shootout this season, stopping only 10 of 23 shots, including Sunday's shootout and yesterday's shootout loss to Columbus) The Penguins took advantage of the shaky goalie situation by ripping two shots past Clemmensen and putting the game in the books. The poor guy added insult to injury by making this tiny mistake just after being spun around by Alex Kovalev. Kodak moment? I guess you could say that. Hope this made someone laugh!
Just a little side note: I used to love having Kris Letang as our first guy on the shootout. In the past he has been too good not to notice. Now however, I feel that we may have a few more talented shots in the skills contest. He has had his best year to date, but It kinda feels like Tanger has lost some confidence in this part of the game. Should I re-assess this?
