Let's do this shite!!!

Wiki-wiki... jyeah...

Flyer Hater said...

There is more buildup to this game than the sequel to National Treasure. This game will change everyone's life.

biff said...

Do it.

cragger said...

T minus 2 hours and 9 minutes till the puck drops and life in philly stops.

Got my fresh pressed Geno shirt on.

I'm even bringing my cheap pens hat for the mad hatter trick I think geno has up his sleeve in aces.

LETS GO PENNNNS!

WIKI WIKI.

in the blue corner, weighing in at the combined weight of the Penguins team resting on the shoulders of Evgeni Malkin, hailing from the Steel City, managed by Charlie in the white spandex, the witty, the gritty, the Gary Roberts lovin', Conk blockin', Fumanchu-in supportin' S.O.B's...the Pensblog

and in the red corner, weighing in with the combined weight of all the trash on the city streets, hailing from Flithadelphia, managed by Don Cherry and Daniel Briere's babysitter Molly, the shitty, the cheap-shot takin', suspension gettin', scared of Laraque-in', unwaranted booers of greatness...Flyerblog

Let's Get It On

DeathByEmu said...

Hi Folks..Pensblog noob here. I have been harassing Flyers fans for months on the Fox Sports boards. My brother sent me the Pensblog hyperlink a week ago..I am in awe. I have truly been put in my place..I never dreamed smacktalk could attain these great heights. AWESOME!!
GO GENO GO!

Ex-Pat Pittsburgh Girl said...

I'm still stuck in the office but I have the DVR set to start recording since I'm on the west coast and will miss the start.

Just saw on the the Post-Gazette on-line that the Pens will open next season in Sweden against the Senators!

Johnny Wrath said...

BGL was a very popular figure in the nightmares of Flyers' skaters last night. How his right arm was seven feet long, and how it gripped their collar. That first crucial right could reach all the way to Chi Town and rope Ben Eager.

This whole Sweden thing seems like a cheap ploy. Pittsburgh is going to headline every publicity-rich event for about 10 years.

I suggest the NHL fortify North America before they start going balls out for Sweden and The Czechs. I suggest having the Florida Panthers play a special regular season game in Hamilton, Ontario 41 times.

stokes said...

i've haven't been this pumped for a 'meaningless game' in January since the eight grade picnic(Winter Classic does not count in any way shape or form).


LET'S GO PENS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

slush said...

Good God is right.

Go Pens!

Johnny Wrath said...

Here's a great idea to promote the NHL in Europe:

Have the New York Rangers™ host a golf tournament in Europe during this years' Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Hip said...

Holy hell, I don't think it's possible for me to be more jacked up right now. Unreal... and I'm all alone in the hellhole know as Bootymore. It's probably a good thing I can't see the game tonight. I might not survive.

Go Pens.

BlacknGold66 said...

Johnny Wrath you have come through again in efforts to make me laugh.

The Florida Panthers belong in Canada (oh here in Cleveland, but really, who am I kidding. Nobody here knows that we've had the Lake Erie Monsters playing all season.)

Hip- sorry you can't watch it. Damn shame that is.

Damn shame.

If you were serious about letting someone post a Flyers recap on her I feel that it is the equivalence of getting in the car with Danny Heatley after a few rounds of Jim Beam

according to yahoo, the game is available on the net tonight.

im gonna have to look up the flyers blog for tomorrow's recap......or boycott pensblog for a day. im a little afraid.

Let's do this shit!

Hip-

That sucks that you won't see the game...open invitation to come watch the game at my place here in Centerville, VA.

chris

wilsmith said...

Baltimore? Seriously? I've never felt so bad for a person in my life. You must have an in-depth knowledge of Joe B, that's terrible.



Anybody need a buddy icon? Found this gem in my photoshop folder from a couple months ago.

searaven35 said...

FIGHT!!!

BlacknGold66 said...

Pens look like ass.

WTF?!?!

Did anyone else notice Scoods limping?

Shit.

LET'S GO PENS none-the-less!!!

BlacknGold66 said...

That's more like it.

Ruutu... you are the man.

Troy Loney said...

Does Biron's pads have flames on the bottom?

Didn't know Hot Topic sold goalie pads.

Flyer Hater said...

We really got our legs underneath us in the last half of that period. It's a shame Malone took that really stupid penalty. 1-1 at the end of one, i'll take it.

Hip said...

blackngold66 - damn shame indeed. Fortunately I'll be moving to Pitt in late May to start residency. This will not be a problem next year/during DC finals this year.

chris e - just a stand up offer. Thank you kindly. Sorry I couldn't take you up on it. Greatly appreciated. :o)

wilsmith - Joe B and I go waaaaaaaaaaay back. When you grow up in Maryland and you love hockey, you watch the Caps. No way around it. Don't let him color your opinion of us though - I promise I'm at least 2X cooler, maybe 3X on a good day ;o)

Johnny Wrath said...

Excellent second half of the period. Philly has a glut of young forwards who are great all-around players.

Christensen shouldered some Philly bastard to the ice. Good times.

Hartnell tried to grab Geno's ass after that goal. Referee may have impeeded him from getting a tight "BGL grip".

Briere is Hard Gay™. I can't wait till those fans turn on him. Go Pens.

chris e said...

Hip- That is a standing offer.

chris

wilsmith said...

Only 3x better than Joe B? C'mon, it has to be more than that.

Is this game being played in a morgue? I thought all of philly would be there, the place seems dead. Or is this another case of awesome FSN audio?

Johnny - from what i've seen on the espn boards, it looks like a lot of Philly already dislikes Briere. Funny

Hip said...

chris - that's hot. Thank you very much. If I can find the time to make the drive too, I would love to watch some hockey with a fellow Pens fan. Welcomechangeblog.

Hip said...

wilsmith - it's only polite to be modest right?

BlacknGold66 said...

New title for the 3rd period...

"There Will Be Blood"

Ashley said...

"I suggest the NHL fortify North America before they start going balls out for Sweden and The Czechs. I suggest having the Florida Panthers play a special regular season game in Hamilton, Ontario 41 times."

haha that's awesome!! The Hamilton Panthers...sounds good to me!

Mike Georger said...

bullshit if BGL gets suspended for that hit, especially considering who it was on

who wants to see malone beat the piss out of rj?

justincredibleh said...

downie = murdered

HAHA_CENA_HURT said...

I really wish Philly didn't get rid of Eager right about now.

The next 20 minutes = blood.

Erica said...

After that hit, when I saw it was Downie, all i could say was... now THAT is karma.

geezer said...

Hope the PK is up to the task. Close and intense game. Heart is racing at times. This PK will be big! Lets go Pens!

BlacknGold66 said...

GOAL Motherbitches!!!

Beren said...

You people are pathetic. I don't recall a hit on a penguin that could land a 20+ game suspension in the last game, and you're proud of smashing Downie's head and neck straight into the boards? Way to rise above and show any bit of class.

Just like you showed class in the 3rd period last game, hacking and slashing and making the Flyers keep the best out their to put you down.

Flyers showed class by dumping an idiot like Eager...

Anonymous said...

Did anyone else just see that little blond girl in the Flyers t-shirt?

Childabuseblog.

Beren said...

And Downie STILL kicks your ASSES!!

(and awesome no call on your interference/goal off moorings. Karma was getting it back immediately a-holes)

Anonymous said...

this is such dirt. such dirt. we better win this. go pens.

Mike Georger said...

that wasnt an ass kicking, stone still managed to land a punch with his jersey over his head. regardless it was downie versus a guy who just got the call, gtfo

BlacknGold66 said...

Go home Beren. Learn the rules.

Nobody here wants to see someone (even a fucking Flyer) get hurt. Our guys aren't the ones punching players while they're on the ice.

Douchebag.

Anonymous said...

What I CLEARLY don't get is...FUCK THE NET,how's Biron supposed to make that save with Jordan Staal taking a nap in the crease? I mean, yah sure, interference has been a call that the refs haven't remembered damn near all night, but I'm just sayin. I think that's what the fans were booing, not that the net was OFF persay but that there could have been a case made for interferece, but you never know in that home town of mine.(God I'd sell my soul to go home right now...ST. LOUIS SUX!!!!) Either way, I don't care what anybody says I'm Philly til I die baby!!!!

LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!! YEEEEEEEESSSSS!!!!!

Dr. Turkleton said...

BGL..aka Lt. Slaughter just gave Downie a 'FREE' hearing-aid adjustment...Douchie flew arms 1st into the boards...he looked like superwoman
Downey < Cote < Eager < Scum

@beren
come back when you learn NHL rules...the net has to be COMPLETELY OFF it's moorings BEFORE the puck crosses the goal line....clearly, it wasn't

Mike Georger said...

wait you think that hit could land a twenty game suspension? without an injury its rare to get that, ESPECIALLY if the dick comes back in the game and fights someone, they take that into consideration
philly is the dirtiest team in the league by a country mile and their fans criticizing anyone else's class is a joke, which is par for the course

ReaverOfSouls said...

Anonymous, all I can say is if they didn't call goalie interference when Hatcher bullrushed Conklin, they shouldn't call interference on Staal for being falling into the crossbar.

GREAT no-call.

Beren said...

Oh sure, speak for yourself black, but your fellow bloggers think a hit like that was "karma".

A guy who was knocked out by that hit, came back and FOUGHT your bitch asses. That's not a hack. That's a hockey player.

In philly, this gay website and you crying fans were ripped on for being a bunch of babies after the last game.

BlacknGold66 said...

Yeah, "In Philly"

Dumbass. Go home.

Troy Loney said...

Beren,

So why are you posting on a gay website?

What does Pensblog Charlie have to say about this?

Bobaloo said...

If YOU can tell the goal was NOT off the moorings, you're a freaking superhero with x-ray vision. No camera angle showed it clearly.

Obviously, there is some bias in the direction the call went.

Keep it up Beren. I hate these fucking pricks.

Mike Georger said...

for what he did to Dean McAmmond he deserves to get cheap shots thrown at him the whole season, what he did was unnacceptable and should not be tolerated.

Mike Georger said...

bobaloo i think they give some deference to the call on the ice and the ref was adamant on that call that it was a goal, just like football i dont think you can overturn something that close

Beren said...

Wow. One of our players committed the same hit earlier in the season, with zero intent to hurt the player, but at the last moment he put his head down...20+ game suspension, and all of you thought it was well deserved and Philly is just dirty...

bobaloo said...

You'd think with the non-call interference, and having to see it repeatedly while looking for the mooring issue, you'd swing your vote to waving it off for total bull..

gootman said...

Eat it, losers.

Mike Georger said...

that was a shit call on malone. dont get me wrong philly played a solid game all around, but there was some shit officiating.
i am off the orpik and scuderi bandwagon for good. i say fuck it if the rangers want orpik trade him for jags, and seeing as scuderi likes to play goalie instead of actually defending people down low, suit him up as the backup

Beren said...

I guess we WON'T get to read a lame excuse recap of this game on Pensblog tomorrow...pens lose. So sorry you looked forward to this for so long...

Let's go to F&H for some beers bobaloo...

BlacknGold66 said...

Hey Flyers posters...

Go get ya fuckin' shine box.

gootman said...

blackngold66: The pens fate is the same as Billy Batts. 4-0 this year, you can talk when you win.

justincredibleh said...

not a bad game at all. i liked when talbot was pissed and broke his stick. last goal was on conklin. should have been poke checked but i still love him.

as for downie, he's fine. he still got murdered. and i loved every bit of it.

Mike Georger said...

cant we all agree on this: at least jersey lost

Mike Georger said...

wow montreal has more points than anyone in the atlantic, i really wouldnt have guessed that

Ryan said...

Lol flyers fans complaining about a bias towards the Pens on PENSBlog. Fucking morons.

Nobody was happy that Downie almost died...people just said it was karma. Karma basically = what goes around comes around. Don't make excuses for his 20 game suspension. He's a douche, just like you guys.

Go home to the murder capital of the world.

Hip said...

chris e - would you hold me after a game like this? I'm just sick right now. I don't think I can watch the recaps...

Feb. 10th can't come fast enough as far as I'm concerned.

ReaverOfSouls said...

Yea, I can enjoy Jersey losing, but damn if this game didn't leave a horrible taste in my mouth.

It was like there was a party in mouth... and everyone threw up.

Mike Georger said...

compounding this terrible loss is the fact that i just realized there is no midnight showing of rambo in state college tonight. yet there was one for 27 dresses last week, i was really counting on some gratuitous violence to make me feel better. fuck

bobaloo said...

oh man...more like philly pooped in your mouth...

leave for F&H yet Beren? Answer your cell...

Make that shit look like fuckin' mirors

im not goin' to F&H tonight...why dont you come over & we can shave each others backs & stuff, k?

Hey, if dude can talk when we win, why are you opening your mouth, you should have stayed silent for what, the last 33 years? Suck it

bobaloo said...

ok...you have razors & whipped cream...er, SHAVING cream...you feel like doing the Heath Bar tonight???

Pensblog Staff said...

hahahha woooooooooooooooooo

Dr. Turkleton said...

BGL...just said Douchie 'Jumped into the boards'....says he's not worried about getting suspended....he might get a game or two for 'intent'...but this is exactly what screw-ball Cherry said these young punks are doin' now...going into the corners with their chest parallel to the boards to 'draw' penalties like Douchie did....he was to much of a wuss to play the puck normally, knowing he was going to get drilled by BGL

BlacknGold66 said...

I'll be at the game Feb. 10

Any flyers fans want to rumble?

Hahahah... GOD I love hockey!!!

Pensblog Staff said...

Downie couldn't even beat up Ryan Stone.

He no question jumped into the boards.

What a joke

Ricks1883 said...

Staggy really needs to shut the fuck up. Before the flyers scored on the major penalty Staggy said "Oh, well the Penguins power play is really looking good tonight"...20 seconds later, flyers scored. THEN (if that wasn't bad enough), after we tied it up and the PK ended, he said "Well bob, it really looks like everything is going the Penguins way tonight..." 16 seconds later, flyers scored...I'm blaming this one on him...JUST SHUT THE FUCK UP AND CALL THE GODDAM GAME!

jim said...

who was wearing that beautiful geno jersey in section 215? you looked devastated after the game.

once again, geno played like a beast.

Dr. Turkleton said...

maybe some photoshops of Downie will start to appear????

Anonymous said...

10 minute misconduct instead of a penalty leaving the flyers with that garbage 5 minute powerplay..

philly is a joke. wake up.

Just-a-Jobber said...

Why do Flyer fans come onto the PENSblog and run their mouths.. this isn't a game thread this is the PENSblog.. a place where PENS fans unite to talk PENS hockey. No one gives a monkeys scrotum what you are doing tonight douche or what you thought about the game. Go to a flyers site if you wanna talk about the flyers.

Well timed 4 day lay off for the club in my opinion. We are still in good shape.. as much as I hate to admit it we just battled a good flyers team to a game that really could have went anyway.. in no way shape or form do I see us going anywhere soon without Sid like that consitpated looking jobber Duff said we would.

In Geno we trust!

Go Pens!

hextallfan said...

hey jobber - Haven't you ever looked at the Philly blog comboxes after a Pens/Flyers game? They're filled with whiney Pens fans.

Malkinian said...

We really don't even need to bother w/ douchbags like Beren and boboloo or whatever the fuck the name is because PHILLY DOESN'T WIN ANYTHING. They're a regular season city in all sports and most of the time they suck at that too. I'm up at State College w/ these losers and all they do is continue to talk shit even when their teams suck ass.

Flyers last Cup - 1975
Phillies - 1980 (their only one)
Sixers - 1983 if anybody cares
Eagles - "NFL Championship" in 1960 before the Superbowl existed

I know the Buccos are shit and haven't won since 1979 but we don't run our mouth about them and the Pens are 15 years post-cup but it's better than 32. Actually win something assholes

well, it looks like it will be flyersblog for 1 day due to losing the game/bet with 700level....should be an interesting read

hextallfan said...

Downie "jumped" into the boards? Interesting. If the shoe was on the other foot, you'd be singing a different tune.

The Pensblog = Stunned

Pensblog Staff said...

Yea most likely Hex.

But I hate Steve Downie. So who cares

Anonymous said...

i fuckin hate the flyers. hate em. i feel like they are dirty bitches. all the time. also, the flyers announcers are just putrid. coates comes to work drunk and on crack mostly, and the play by play guy tends to lean ever so slightly towards insulting/criticizing the away team. al morganti is ok. overall philly is a big joke. with too much traffic. and people. and dirt. go pens.

stokes said...

Beren and bobaloo:

Does F&H stand for Fag and Homo? Because that's what it sounds like after reading your asshole comments.

Downie=JOKE. he completely DOVE after BGL PUSHED him! Pushed not checked. downie is a complete piece of shit.

I will give it up: a good game and a 'decent loss'(if there is such a thing) to a good team.

Staal had a solid game.

cragger said...

Hey lets not forget about the phillies this year. They played like their asses were on fire the last 22 games of the season, beat out the mets.

And then choked on a fat colorado rockie...

Lets go kevin curtis! WOOOOO WOOOO YEAHHHH WOOOOOO. Westbrooke's going to tampa bay, just wait eagles fans, it's going to happen, he's sick of being the teams work horse... Hell this eagles season even hurt dawkins feelings, and that guy is a beast when he has some HELP in that back field.

My insides still hurt.

Our defenseman tonight played like poopy.

Hey Bucci is hosting Sportscenter, god still loves us.

Anonymous said...

Bucci is a beast an nat.

Thamajor said...

obviously I am not an unbiased in my take of the game being a flyers fan. I thought both teams played well, obviously the pens did much better than their last outing with the flyers. Rivalries like this are definately great for hockey post lockout. Something that I have come across over the years watching steelers/eagles, pens/flyers, to a lesser extent due to both teams for the most part playing in the toilet phillies/pirates is each others absolute hatred for either the actual city of the team. maybe I have a rarity but I can get over the hatred of ones sports team at a I dunno say a nice bar with a nice beer. so I will say this next time one of you guys are in philly look someone up and go to a nice bar and have a lager then trash talk the team. everythings better with a beer

Anonymous said...

Barry Melrose said BGL looks like the bad guy on that hit because he out weighs the other player but don't discount the fact that the other player went into the boards the wrong way and should have heard in "football" terms, the foot steps of a big man with the missle lock on and thats why he called it a border line call...

Oh well, i am sure barry is biased towards the pens...

cragger said...

I live in philly, i love torturing eagles/flyers/phillies fans! Especially eagles fans!

aunt penny said...

now you kids all settle down...why not send these visitors some t-shirts so they feel better....http://www.drunkenbleachers.com/images/products/tpf5/tpf5_largebk.jpg

Randall said...

I can't help but to have respect for Philly fans. Especially the ones on here. Most likely they are between the ages of 18-30, so really they have no idea what it's like to celebrate their city winning anything since most were either not born, or at the oldest about 6 years of age, and that's the Sixers and Phillies, two sports no one cares about.

Johnny Wrath said...

·Philly really, really turned it around fast. They're going to have a shot at highest point turnaround from one season to next.

·I thought I saw Mike Knuble tonight?

·Why would Downie look up at Laraque then skate face down towards the corner? Would you do that? And if you would, what part of Ohio are you from?

·I'm sure there are Penguin fans who frequent Philly's message boards. Tomorrow, unfortunately, will be such a time. Good game.

·That doesn't mean you aren't a whoreson. Go Pens.

·What was with Kieth Primeau stopping in with Bob Errey? I thought fraternizing with the enemy was a cardianl sin?

·Our role players tried to play a whale of a game tonight, and it didn't work. I don't think Therrien knows what he has in Ruutu. I think he needed to see a lot of Gagne tonight, but he saw a lot of hard hits instead.

·Finally, Staal and Filewich came so, so close. Jeff Taffe looks like some dude seen on "To Catch A Predator". You know, the show where men show up to sex down underage girls who look a lot like Danny Briere...

besides for the regulars this c-blog here looks like PSI's vomitblog.

0-4. but still 4 to go.

Downie is a joke. and Steigy needs to SHUT THE F*** UP TOO! he's killing me

Anonymous said...

Ok well I will say classless
Philly fans are trash for simply filling in the box on our blog.
I say our blog because this is exactly what it is. So what pens lose 4 in a row to philly. Also I will be the first to say if we had crosby it would have been diffrent. so I am almost over it. it may take a couple hours of sleep but we will be just fine.

Themajor said...

I don't know why we are all classeless I came on here and said nothing disrespectful or trashing the pens, yes this is the pensblog and I am not a frequent visitor just when our two teams meet up. the kinda play were are seeing between the flyers and penguins is nothing but good for hockey. And yes I am 23 and it absolutly sucks to watch your team come very close so many times in your lifetime and not win a championship but we are there game in game out minus the sixers but ehh college hoops is much better and we got what ever is left of the big five.

Damnit Johnny Wrath!! Why the Ohio comment man? I'm from Cleveland.

That's it, I don't want to be your bestfriendblog anymore.

At least for a day that is.

Anonymous said...

I may be a little bias because I love Jarkko but was anyone else excited about him stepping up tonight? That had to have been so hard for him to resist beating the shit out of Hatcher. He still gave the assist after that one. Hatcher is a douche why didnt anyone kill him tonight. Slamming Ruuts then slashing Talbot in the face and him sliding into Conklin to cop a feel. Atleast the Devils lost.
Og Ruutu er en skjønn mann!
