GameDay (60) -- Panthers @ Pens



7:30

TV:
FSN

Radio:
[ WXDX ]




The Panthers fall in line with their geographical position.
Next to the bottom in the Eastern Conference.

Definitely not a jobber game, since the Panthers are only like 4 points from the top spot in the Southeast Division.

Sidney Crosby isn't playing tonight, which is no surprise.
Christensen's out till next week sometime.

Conk in net.


-- Eric M. --

Tomas Vokoun is a maniac.
We get to see his antics again.

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


It's a go.

great reference with that king of the ring picture at the mellon.

(To Judas Priest- Breaking the Law)

Geno was completely streaking, only 1 point down
All inside, he's so frustrated as he storms from town to town
To be the scoring champ, he has dreamed of his whole life
So he might as well score 2 goals, then go and bang Vokoun's wife

Taking the lead, taking the lead
Taking the lead, taking the lead
Taking the lead, taking the lead
Taking the lead, taking the lead

So much for that hefty contract, Ovie no make playoffs
Geno would have 50 goals, if he took 3 million shots
Noah Welch for Gary Roberts, Florida get a clue
Jokinen, zip up your pants, you've been Conkblocked too

Taking the lead, taking the lead
Taking the lead, taking the lead
Taking the lead, taking the lead
Taking the lead, taking the lead

I'm Ushering Tonight Most Likely Section E29 But Every Time I Say Where I Think I'll Usher, I Get Moved So Just Look Where The Pens Shoot Once.

Huge Game Tonight, How Great Would It Be To Be Tied For First In The East With A Win. Granted There Be Four Teams Tied But Still It Would Be Nice. Go Pens!

This game is a day late.no work monday but no pens meant was stuck watching the lak and phx.

everytime i think of "breaking the law" i think of beavis and butthead

Lets Go Pens. Geno for Scoring Lead.

Mike Georger said...

whatever happened to noah welch(welsh? welzych?), he floating around in their farm system?

Eric K said...

yeah Welch has played only 4 games with the Panthers this year. no points, 7 PIM. King Shero saw that coming

thaaaats a shame

you roll the rare triple post there?

Hip said...

Welch was a Hip family fav - he showed such promise.

Go Pens.

Anonymous said...

I heard Welch got hurt and was to miss the season. This was awhile back on one of the radio shows when the caller was complaining about gary roberts

nu said...

Welch has been injured; his stats aren't entirely his fault.

Hoping for good things tonight. A simple Pens win and Philly loss'll be fine - anything else is extra.

Isn't it GameDay(60)? Groundhog Day must've gotten in there somehow.

WAAAAAAAAAAIT FOR IIIIIIIIIIT...

yeah tripled up on that one, damn you Al Gore.

any1 got the dirt on Adam Hall? not that anyone misses him, just curiosity i guess.

vinnie said...

KISS morning show hosting tonight at the arena, for those of you headed over there.

Jersey Bill said...

Between the Priest stuff and the WWF stuff from the earlier c-blogs, it takes me back to a time when I was...well...dare I say it...in the best shape of my life. And buying up some sweet Kevin Stevens shit from that little sports shop on Fifth across from the Medical Arts building.

Flyer Hater said...

Wooo, I was there in 98 and that Hell in the Cell match changed your life. Tonight could be huge, a win and you know what.

Flyer Hater said...

Oh and if anyone watched Channel 11news (I know, almost noone does) was you know who doing the sports casts? Because if that special someone is, we're good.

Your sense of drama must have been set to stun tonight...

SWISH!




LET'S GO PENS!!!

Flyer Hater said...

Chris E just won this game.

Malkin 2 and 2 tonight. Write it down.

Eric... great job on the Priest parody!!

Hey... has anyone here gotten any merch from cafe press? My WWGRD shirt came today and the lettering isn't even close to being Vegas gold... it looks more like Constructicon green. Anyone else notice the same with their shirts?

Eric P said...

Cena will win at Wrestlemania.

Ryan said...

hahaha yes!

game over.

Anonymous said...

got a Rock out/Conk Out shirt and the lettering was definitely a "Mr. Yuck" green, not vegas gold.

Brett said...

It's not a hockey night in Pittsburgh until Errey talks about jack straps.

Anonymous said...

did i hear Errey say something about getting someone out of their "jock strap"....could charlie please look into this?

GO PENS!

chris e said...

Let's do this shit!

Steve In Denver said...

JFK vs John Wilkes Boothe at the Ford Theater. Wow.

Flyer Hater said...

We're not scoring tonight

Mike Georger said...

pp is playing like shit, they need to stop slobbering all over it. theyve given up more shorthanded chances than offensive ones. terrible.
bad bad bad game for whitney thus far
ugh

I can't handle watching the third period, this is worse than the Boston game.

Anonymous said...

This is the lamest, most uninspired game I have seen in a long time. Why does it seem like nobody cares about this game (not only the team)? THIS IS A BIG GAME considering the schedule this week! WAKE THE FUCK UP! Steigerwald & Errey just keep going on talking about nonsense (hats and shit). The crowd has to be the dullest crowd ever! MAKE SOME GOD DAMN NOISE! PAY ATTENTION AND GET INTO THE GAME! Just another example of the Pens playing down to other teams' levels...

chris e said...

Sorry guys...fiance's birthday today and the gameday post wasn't up before I left for dinner. Apparently this game will do down as being my fault...I guess I can handle that.

Anonymous said...

All that anyone cares about is Crosby coming back...Well I have news for you, we have important games to win until then.

chris e said...

Any by the way...the chris e at 7:11 is a fraud...I didn't get online until after the game started.

seeker said...

Someone MUST murder Steigy and Errey!

Saying "every time Staal goes in the box the opposition scores" at the beginning of the penalty is like rooting for Florida!

DeathByEmu said...

WHOO! 'Russian' into the points lead! Evgeni friggin Malkin.
ps. IF Geno had taken 400 shots this year like A.O. he would have 50 goals too.

Flyer Hater said...

It's nice to see that the Armstrong goal didn't distract us from our mission of looking like garbage the whole night.

i'm expecting to see a photoshop of geno in a speedo and in a pool/on a diving board.

malkin is fucking possessed

wow its about time

NOW Malkin really IS leading AO!!!!

That's what life is all about right there.

Philly - Ottawa tied at 2....going into OT.

Philly gets at least 1 pt.

Anonymous 9:16, I believe they woke up.

Come back when you feel like committing to the Penguin for ALL THREE PERIODS.

chris e said...

Wow!!! Fucking awesome!!!

Oddly it seems the scoring started right after the 'real' chris e made his post....

paekhead said...

wooooooooo fucking sweet!! go pens!!

Mike Georger said...

maybe espn will put malkin in the top five for hart candidates now. i mean i know hes not nearly as impressive as iggy and lidstrom, because leading the league in points doesnt mean shit. jackasses.

Anonymous said...

Gotta Love it. Geno is the man. Malone with 2 huge goals. Gotta love the Whitney play working for the hundreth time.


Rangers/ Habs in OT. Rangers had a 5-0 lead in the 2nd.

seeker said...

Yeah Chris E...had they lost, we'd have held you responsible for breaking tradition.

You owe Malone one now!

NEVER do that again will ya?

Flyer Hater said...

Bows head in shame

PittHockey said...

wow at everyone that gave up on the pens tonight.

Malkin showed you.

blufftalk said...

  If you missed this one, shame on you for six weeks. The kind of game where you have to change your pants. That TV shot of the crowd flipping out after Malone's goal was what life was all about.

Nate said...

gotta love both the cryers and the rangers both losing in the shootout after that win

Jonny V said...

I came in the house after we scored the second goal, and saw the game winner by Mayday Malone. Must have been twice as nice to watch the whole game and see the comeback...I'm in class learning about atrial depolarization and SA nodes and friggin' purkinje fibers, and some of yinz are actually complaining about watching the game tonight? Come on! How many times have we been down 2-0 this season only to come back and win the game? At least Melvin recognized his buttheadery and hung his head in shame.

Chris E, good lookin' out on the trademark phrase. That was a close one!

BobFarls said...

John Fedko, what is there to say other than "what a jackass".

He said the pens would go on a season ending losing streak starting with the Buffalo game.

Suddenly we've won every game since Fedko made that gloriously wrong prediction.

If you haven't guessed it yet, I have a personal vendetta against Fedko and his fagerstrom kronies.

GO PENS

Anonymous said...

Go Pens!!!. hahahah. heard on CenterIce...."it's all on the tiny shoulders of Danny Briere." seconds before he gets stuffed in the shootout w/the Sens.

Mike Georger said...

wow carolina has played three more games than the eight seed and has less points. worst division ever.

BlacknGold66 said...

All the money I dished out for Center Ice was paid for tonight.

The slow-mo of the crowd when Malone scored the go-ahead choked me up a bit. Not gonna lie to ya.

I love this team damnit!!!

J.S. said...

Rangers = stunned.

Rangers had a 5-0 lead with 14:57 left in the 2nd and lose in OT.

Nate said...

Dear ESPN,
Thank you for continuously updating me every ten minutes for a week on one possible NBA trade, while showing an average of 27 seconds of NHL highlights a day. It's a really boring league anyway. I really appreciate it...


...jackasses

Flyer Hater said...

Seriously, I wouldn't be surprised to see the Rangers not win another game this season after that collapse.

Pensblog Staff said...

PCNC 11:30

Nathan said...

The Pens' comeback and the dueling shootouts in Montreal and Ottawa on three consecutive channels on Center Ice tonight. It's nights like this that are why I get that package every year. Even on TV, that crowd in Montreal brought the goosebumps, and the "It all rests on the tiny shoulders of Daniel Briere" comment from the Ottawa announcers was absolutely priceless, especially when Briere showed why he's the anti-Malkin and killed his team with the game on the line.

I'm now watching the Phoenix-Calgary game to come down from those three games so I can go to sleep tonight.

Flyer Hater said...

Flyer Fans hate Briere

Oh man.

emily said...

pitthockey at 10:12 -

Word.

Great game. OT would have been cake. But Malone said suck it.

Pure, unadulterated awesome.

Fleury29 said...

Games like that make life worth living. Just when you think you're gonna throw yourself in the Monongahela for Tom Hardy to find BIGGETTY BAM! Army, Malone and then, holy shit, MALONE again!

The jobber bus just keeps on rolling.

At this point, anyone who doesn't believe in the Pens can, to quote Stoosh, "go fuck themselves with the business end of a Civil War-era bayonette."

Let's go Pens.

Just got back from the game y'all.

I think Malone heard me when i siad, verbatim, with one minute left, "This game isn't going into overtime."

You wouldn't believe it, but people were leaving with 5 minuted left. I wanted to kick some asses. LOSERS!!!

I didnt think the Pens played particularly badly. Sure the defensive end looked sloppy, OFTEN and the PP looked terrible, BUT they still had chances and Vokoun(sp) played very well. He's no Conk Block, but, then again, who the hell is?????

Huge win against a bunch of turds. They had better plan on showing up for 6 periods over the next two games, or it may get ugly.


My throat hurts. Florida=STUNNED.

Can't wait for 11:30.

Dr. Turkleton said...

just got back from the game [takes hit from oxygen mask]
those 2 KISS(?)FM guys are straight out of a SNL skit [inhale, exhale]
as soon as bugsys goal crossed the goalline....my bro & I bolt for the exits....he says "are they reviewing it?" & we put the breaks on & slip inside a black curtain near b18....as soon as we see the ref point towards center ice, we were like, lightning up genos ass in the 3rd period, out the door!!!
great accomplishment for getting 2 points after being M.I.A. for 45:00....
got my #8 Recchi & #19 Whitney hats for $2.00 ea.....maybe they'll be a buck on Saturday?

will alby oxenbloxen take a call tonight? or will we be entertained by david johnson again?

Fleury29 said...

Dr. Turkleton, you got your Wreckin' Ball hat for $2? Wow. $1 less than I paid last week. I think they will be $1 next week.

Didn't see any Whitney hats, guess I didn't look hard enough. Would have preferred Whitney to Recchi but oh well. A hat's a hat. Maybe I should mail my friend $1 and tell her to get me a Whitney hat. LOL.

Flyer Hater said...

Fuck, Oxenjoke is on again. He better take some calls, PROCEED WIT JOBBING AS PLANNED!

stokes said...

I dont have the authority to call a halt to the Tour, but i thought the purpose of calling was jobbing Fedko, because he's a complete toolbag, a know-nothing ass wipe that somehow has a phone-in show. Calling and jobbing Fedko is about trying to ruin his show and generally make him look like a fool. maybe i have the wrong impression? Alby is just filling in and, as far as i know, does not job the Pens nearly as much as Joke Fedko....

Flyer Hater said...

Well Oxenjoke isn't taking calls again but he did say that Fedko should be back tomorrow. Don't give up people, these trying times will ultimately make the supreme jobbing that much better.

Dr. Turkleton said...

@fleury29
hahaha....funny they were $3 last week & now $2, when they were originally $20....not that bad of a hat, either....unstructured, just the way I like 'em....
the #8 is for my dad, who always was on his case when he came back until he got picked up by A-T-L...so this will be a little reminder for him...
the #19 is for me: Yzerman [along w/ Mario] was my idol growing up in the 80's...& I am 1 of the few who does like Whitney

MadMax said...

"Many people tuned in last night for our antics and tonight might have been disappointed" If they only knew the real reason...

speaking of hats, this might be the most ballinest hat I've ever seen:

Ummmmm Malkin has more points and he still can gain the respect he deserves..... Sad sad SAD!

Edit my last post and the word is

CAN'T! Can't get respect!!!

PittHockey said...

where were these 92-comment games when the pens were in last in the division?

Stanley P. Kachowski said...

I think Fedko is calling in sick because he's caught wind of the tourbus gassin' up.

nu said...

The front page of NHL.com has a nice new addition.

Geno taking the scoring lead in addition to that third period = sweet, sweeeet extra...

canaanregulatesblog said...

flat-brimmed hats are so gay.

MadMax said...

If Malkin took as many shots as A.O. he would have ~~58 goals right now.
P.S. Flat brimmed hats are amazingly gay. Canaan speaks the truth

Chase said...

that's the beauty of flat brimmed hats: they don't have to stay that way if you don't want them to.
