Don't hate the zebras

I was lucky enough to take my 7-year-old son, Danny, to the Penguins/Flyers game on March 16 and sat against the glass.

Towards the end of the first period, one of the linesmen, Pierre Racicot, saw my boy and tossed a game-used puck over the glass. I gave the disc to my son and said, "See? Don't hate the zebras."

To me, this was a class act and it made my kid's day, not to mention the stellar performance of the Pens.

Thanks to Pierre and thanks to the Penguins for a great effort. Go Pens!
