Thibault Facing Pressure

from the Tribune-Review,
The Penguins will score their share of goals this season. However, if they hope to prevent enough goals to make the playoffs, Thibault will have to go to work. Of course, if Thibault works in Pittsburgh the way he did the past five seasons in Chicago -- specifically, start 50 or so games in goal and stop the majority of pucks sent his way -- then Pittsburgh might play host to its first Stanley Cup playoff game since 2001. No pressure, though. "Kind of, but it's a kind of pressure I'm looking forward to, for sure," Thibault said Wednesday, the second of two successful house-hunting days he spent in Pittsburgh. "It seems like the Penguins are really trying to win this year, and it's been a while since I've been in an exciting environment like I am now.
