Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Ron Cook of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,
Shame on me for looking so far ahead. It’s November 22. There still is much hockey to play, 61 regular-season games before the playoffs. A lot can happen. Heaven knows injuries can happen.
I realize all of that.
But if you watched Crosby and the Penguins blow away the Islanders, 5-0, how could you not at least be tempted to look ahead? How could you not begin to formulate a picture in your mind of Crosby holding up the Stanley Cup on Consol Energy Center ice?
I pictured it quite clearly, actually.
That was the Penguins team Monday night, their whole team. With defenseman Zbynek Michalek and that Crosby fellow back in the lineup, they were complete for the first time this season. And they were spectacular.
“You saw it, man,” winger Matt Cooke said. “You saw in relative quick fashion the potential of this hockey club.”
