Above: Martin Biron slammed the door on the Penguins last night including 18 shots in a first period Penguins onslaught.
Above:"The Butcher" didn't play bad last night. It was Martin Biron's turn to stand on his head in goal. But make no mistake about it, how he plays will be the biggest factor in determining if the Penguins advance.
Statistically, it would be very interesting to see how the home court, home field, home ice advantage plays out among all the major sports and colleges and what the overall combined winning percentage is for the home team. It's probably a lot closer to .500 than you might think.
So enjoy dressing up, painting your face and making signs. Just don't think you had anything to do with the team winning. You were just fortunate enough to witness it live.
