GameDay (43) -- Pens @ Lightning



[tbl.png]
19:38

Tampa Bay is in the storm cellar of the Eastern Conference.
But it doesn't matter.
The St. Pete Times Forum has been very unkind in recent memory.

Crosby is headed into the fire tonight,
as we can expect the Vinny Lecavalier lovers to boo the hell out of him.


J. Schiff M.D.

...................................................

Maxime Talbot will be in the lineup tonight.
Kennedy and Christensen have the flu.
Ryan Stone in the lineup.

There's always a solid contingent of Pens fans down in Tampa.

Go Pens

I took the year off from going to Tampa. Maybe this will actually help us there tonight.

Hey, themesongblog, where'd you get that time machine. It's amazing that you've traveled here from two years ago.

Hip said...

Good to see Max get back into the things tonight with flu kids out. Hopefully they're being quarantined.

Go Pens.

Ovechkin in Washington: 13 yrs, $124 million. That's 9.5+ per.

Really hoping we can keep it going. Have a bad feeling but I'll be hangin here for a while.

FrankD said...

To further support our shared hatred of Eklund...

Two days ago:

"I can tell you this much. There are some legs to this rumour. It could turn out to be enormous. The players vary depending on the source, but the bottom line is Ovechkin and Kolzig to the Preds...

Today Ovi signs with Caps for a ridiculous amount of money:

"Congrats to all Caps fans!"

Tool...

TheNaturalMevs said...

I'm really hoping that we keep it going. I have Stanley cup dreams this year. I can honestly see it.

Brett said...

I'm an idiot.

I could have been listening to Mike Lange broadcasts in synch with the game this whole time.

I have one of those devices that can pause and rewind live tv, and I of course can stream Lange's great (though 15s delayed) audio broadcast. So I simply pause the game for those 15 seconds then resume play, synch'd with the audio broadcast. Presto, we're back in 1991 again!

this beats the hell out of the pot luck of getting the opposing teams' broadcasters with center ice.

chris e said...

Great idea Brett!! I never thought of that...too bad I have to watch the Pens in the dungeon...where there is no DVR box.

TheNaturalMevs said...

i knew i had a bad feeling

jim said...

georges gotta get it to staalsy earlier for the natural hatty!

BlacknGold66 said...

Staal came out of the cave he was hiding in. You could feel it coming.

I HAVE to succumb to my cable company and but the Center Ice package. "Watching" the game on espn.com is absolutely killing me.

Let's Go Pens!

Errey goes "Conklin gobbled up the rebound like a hungry hungry hippo!"

I love that game. Can someone please photoshop that for me????

Stoosh said...

(Cue Mike Lange)

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

He showed up to work wearin' shorts!

RYAN MALONE!!!

Stoosh said...

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

In Russia that's called "an empty net goal"!

EVGENI MALKIN!!!!!!!!

Stoosh said...

In light of the Ovechkin extension, I've been on the horn to Vegas here at Castille de Stoosh, and my sources in Vegas tell me...

Over/under on the first "I thought the lockout was supposed to prevent big salaries" column from some national media hack who wouldn't know a puck if Al MacInnis whalloped one into his giggleberries = 11:00 AM Eastern Time Friday

some guest said...

great win. staal malone and sykora all with great games. nice to see staal score. love the conk block on vinny. biggest thing i saw though, the amounts of shots blocked. the spirit of eaton is with us.

It was so nice to see one of our draft picks finally come through this year.
Does anybody know who wears number 11 in black and gold? They should really think about keeping that guy up he is really playing swell as of late. I guess we should cancel that amber alert, well lets wait till he gets home

on it. I'm sure other people are too!

stokes said...

The Great Wall of Conklin strikes again. What a Conk Block on Vinny!!

after a so-so first, the pens played pretty well. huuuuuge penalty killing going on tonight.

Good for Ovie. Thoughts about that signing: not only will he never play with anyone to help him again, but he'll be stuck in that rat hole DC for 13 years. a 13 year contract is a joke.

thoughts about the pittsburgh penguins: they kick ass.

GO PENS!

Jeffry said...

thats got to be some hard work to sync up lange off the internet and dvr'd tv. i dont think i have that kind of patience. it might just be easier to kidnap steigerwald

macdstv said...

So, to compliment the WWGRD wristbands, who's gonna make the "Rock out with your Conk out" t-shirts?
Wait, maybe not. We see what the wristbands did.

Nathan said...

Of course, you all do realize that Ovechkin's monster contract will mean that he'll be the only thing worth watching in Washington for the next 13 years. At least he's an entertaining player -- I just wonder how long it'll take him to get frustrated with the fact that about the best the Caps will be able to do for a supporting cast will be guys like Tom Poti and go Alexei Yashin on them. George McPhee ought to go ask Tampa how loading up on a couple good players is working out for team success.

At least we can look forward to 13 more years of Caps fans whining about Crosby vs. Ovechkin and the NHL trying to create a rivaly that doesn't exist. Oh, and 13 years of beating Ovechkin and the Hershey Bears.

homesprout said...

Great effort from the Pens tonight. I hope Lord Therrien keeps Malone, Staal, and Sykora together for the next couple games to see what they can do.

Damn Devils keep on winning.....

Nailer News said...

King Conk is the man. What a stud.

wingergirl said...

i feel bad for Ovie.

he's never going to win the cup now.

poor kid.

Anonymous said...

If anyone in the league is gonna get 9.5 mil a year, it should be Alex the great or MAYBE a handful of others. That doesnt bother me.

What does is scott gomez getting 7.5 mil a year(a measily 23 goals in last year and a half) and brad richards making 8 mil a year(-24 this year). AO is a force and is only gonna get better. Teddy KGB says "Pay dat man his money".

ruutu has been solid.

vinny is a cherrypicker.

i say we get a petition going to send to FSN to get them to say conkblock instead of save every time conklin stops the puck

Adrienne said...

Amazing, amazing, AMAZING game and HUGE win tonight. I haven't been this happy about a game in a long time.

YAY! :D
