We're gonna get all emotional with everyone in the coming days.
Where has the time gone? Weren't we just watching the Winter Classic?

Whomever in Cblog first saw the similarity, make your presence known.
We're looking for a sick Ed Harris pic right now, so we can't search comments.



Notice how he refuses to confirm that he's actually a male.
Not that we want any visual confirmation of any kind.

And, damn it, we refuse to post the pictures,
but G-Dubs has a screenshot of Conference Champion hats.

Foist...uh FIRST

Whistler said...

As we prepare for the upcoming game, let us pray..

Our Roberts, who art in Pittsburgh, Gary be thy name.
The Playoffs come, The cup be won,
to Pittsburgh in the Arena called Mellon.

Give us this day our daily Pensblog
and forgive us our reporters as we job those who job against us
And lead us not into Philly, But deliver us from the whiners,
For thine is the Crosby, and the Malkin, and the Fleury for ever and ever.

AMEN!

Now, LET'S GO PENS!!!!

Antonette said...

NOTHING TO SAY BUT
LETS GO PENS.

I've got Mike Lange on the comp on standby.

This is what we've been waiting for for god knows how long.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

(first?)

Eric P. said...

Let's Go Pens

Sweep their asses.

PHUCK
FILLY

stokes said...

The Gary Roberts Terminator PShop is fucking fantastic.


What an Ed Harris picture. He's so money and he doesn't even know.

Jonny V said...

Good call on the switching to Lange with 3 minutes to go.

Mascara boy will be crying tonight.

Sooska said...

LET'S GO PENS!! EUREKA!

nailersfan66 said...

Oh my God, I just re-lived puberty with those Topanga pics.

Christina said...

Staal with the GWG.

GO PENS!!!!!!!!!

zach said...

TOPANGAAAAAA!!!!!

Stillson said...

Mascara boy must've gotten waterproof mascara, but that won't stop that giant walking vagina from crying his eyes out.

eileenover said...

Where is Chris E.

TheNWChica said...

Shit...I never thought I'd get here. Bah!

Thank you Whistler!

somechic said...

DO IT!

Kristen said...

It's our time.

"BEAT THEM WHITE ASS BITCHES!!!!!!! TAKE THEM HO'S DOWN!!!!!! FLYERS ARE PUNK ASS BITCHES!!!!!!! DO IT!"

PittHockey said...

I'm hoping for a sweep. We need all the rest possible before the wings.

Jimmy Hugs said...

It's a hockey night in Pittsburgh... philly...whatever.

PENS FTW!

Dr. Turkleton said...

dr turk with the Whitney-eque outlet pass...
BNG66 BURIES IT [with the Hairy Gary PS]...I was hoping someone would do it!

Ain't it grand how in all 3 rounds, the opposing media makes mention of the whole 33 years between comebacks from being down 3 games to zero? '42 - '75 - '08? [a philly comcast dude talking with Stan on FSN-Pit just dropped that piece of 'information']
would've been nice for Stan to say 'Yeah, we've heard that the last 2 rounds & have ignored it!'

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

[Hossa: Col. Jessup may have saved lives, but Big Poppa Pump is going to ruin lives & make grown men cry tonight!]

All systems go.

Go Pens.



Hossa.

mdpensfan said...

LET'S GO PENS

soooo pumped for this game

Carroll said...

chica - I know that is one of your favourite Don Cherry's jackets. Pepto is always attractive.

Go Pens Go!!

eileenover said...

LET'S GO PENS!!!

Ed Harris FTW

The Seeker said...

SHOCK & AWE tonight Penguins!

Jimmy Hugs said...

Hail Gary, Full of Anger,
LeGame is with thee.
Blessed art thou among Penguins,
And blessed is the fruit of thy loins, Crosby.
Holy Gary,
and Malkin and Staal,
play for your city now,
and at the hour of victory.

RAmen

cg said...

7:38 and I already feel the need to buy some dockers

TheNWChica said...

@carroll: I think I used to have a beach bag made of that same material. lol

Antonette said...

Okgod, the Dockers commercial is on already.

Okay, really going to watch the game now. WOO.

TheNWChica said...

I'm telling y'all....richsports and the Ceeb! It's way better than the tools on VS.

Johanna Montana said...

OMG, y'all, I think I'm gonna crap myself!

M. Vanderlasser said...

Amen, Whistler!

xuscbausp said...

dont be detroit tonight, pens

Jonny V said...

For Dan

chris e said...

holy balls!

TheNWChica said...

Hey Carroll....do you think maybe we'll get our boys Jim and Craig back for the next game? I miss Jim, and now I'm only going to be able to see him on Saturdays now.

xuscbausp said...

no game day chat tonite?

xuscbausp said...

PP

eileenover said...

Briere: WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Matt in N.C. said...

Gray Hoodie of Victory was late to the party.

Had to work a little over.

WOOOOOOO!

GO PENS!

I can't believe it took a whole 4:57 to get a Timonen reference...

TheNWChica said...

Hey....is the Malkin shirt on???

Pensgirl said...

66 buries it (on both counts)

Carroll said...

Chica - I think who ever we have sounds better then the vs crew. And I love the fact I never see a dockers commercial. I will take the repeating Timbits commercial anyday.

Carroll said...

crap!

eileenover said...

Our defense is shit right now.

TheNWChica said...

Damn it Fleur!

Johanna Montana said...

Son of a freekin' gun!

BlacknGold66 said...

I ain't scurred.

BlacknGold66 said...

I ain't scurred.

johnny said...

Let's Go Pens! Blow these dudes off of their own ice.

Delenda est Philadelphia!

Johanna Montana said...

BlacknGold I like your icon.

TheNWChica said...

Why do they always do this in the first? I have that queasy feeling, yo.

Pensgirl said...

You know, this could be a good thing. The Flyers are finally skating and challenging our passes, which means we'll have to be crisper. And you can be damn sure we'll need that crispness moving forward.

Johanna Montana said...

That was holding? Hmmm...

BlacknGold66 said...

@Turk: That was one helluva pass by you. I couldn't miss.

Let's Go Pens!!!

BlacknGold66 said...

CBC announcer after seeing the "hold":

"There it is. Hmmm... wow." (not a penalty)

Jimmy Hugs said...

Where's my tin-foil hat?

jumonvillechick7 said...

Gahh! Why do all the video feeds hate my computer tonight :(

TheNWChica said...

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK

JYo said...

I already have Lange and the ol 29er synced up with the VS telecast! WOOOOOOOOO! I'm prolly seeing things 10-15 seconds later than I could be, but whatev, no crap VS sound!!!

Johanna Montana said...

HCMT needs to give the kiddies a little talk.

JYo said...

Time for comebackblog to crush their soul and close out the series. Fleury is having a shaky start, but they'll settle down and get the win.

Matt in N.C. said...

Matt in N.C. = stunned

The Seeker said...

BS goal by Briere...that's interference on the goalie.

Antonette said...

Nauseablog.

HCMT will get them to get their shit together. Because we are on nine different planets right now.

I trust 'em.

BlacknGold66 said...

Since Flyer Hater isn't here I'll say it.

Pens aren't making the playoffs.





WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

M. Vanderlasser said...

The next goal will be HUGE!

Antonette said...

Also I like how Briere laid on Fleury during that goal. Nice.

Pensgirl said...

Yeah the D needs to help Fleury out more but all it should take is to get one back to settle him down. That's all he needed in the first Rags game.

Hip said...

Nothing to worry about.

We can score two goals in our sleep while dreaming about McDonald's snack wraps.

We're just facing a little bit of adversity right now which is something we should relish. Nothing is going to come easy if we move forward.

That being said. Let's get our shit together out there boys.

JYo said...

Looks like the conspiracy wagon is fired up...in aid of the Cryers. I guess the Pens have to play the Cryers and the refs, etc. etc.

eileenover said...

What the hell is clipping?

JYo said...

WTF is clipping?

TheNWChica said...

Kill Maxie Kill!

Johanna Montana said...

Mad Max is Mad.

BlacknGold66 said...

GET 'EM GONCH!

The NHL wants the Flyers to win.

eileenover said...

THANK YOU

JYo said...

Lange is on top of his game. He is criticizing the scoreboard operator and the folks who make decisions on TV timeouts. Awesome, he's fired up. I'm glad I have him on tonight.

BlacknGold66 said...

Bring out the BGL

Pensgirl said...

Paul Holmgren = Judge Doom

Antonette said...

[from wiki]
Clipping is a penalty in the sport of ice hockey. It is generally recognized as hitting an opposing player at or below the other player's knees.

That's Letang. Dirtydirtydirty.
Or something.

PittHockey said...

wow, the vs. bias towards philly continues

M. Vanderlasser said...

Megadethh blows.

Joose said...

NOBODY GIVES A FUCK ABOUT HOCKEY CENTRAL!!

Pensgirl said...

Amen, Joose.

Should I have linked this version of the judge?

M. Vanderlasser said...

Sorry, "Megadeth".

Antonette said...

This feels like Europe on the verge of WWI.
North and South on the verge of the Civil War.

Shit is going to go DOWN.

Chris said...

Now we know the real reason Dave Mustaine was kicked out of Metallica...he's just a pathetic Philly loser.

eileenover said...

Who got the damn penalty this time?

eileenover said...

Nevermind.

Stillson said...

These refs are so bad.

Pensgirl said...

Brooks gets hit in the head and HE got the penalty? That's fucking ridiculous.

Jimmy Hugs said...

Can we get ONE call tonight?

BlacknGold66 said...

What the fuck ever.

Thank God for CBC because they are agreeing with me that these calls are garbage.

Stillson said...

Wow.

TheNWChica said...

Oh my God...

eileenover said...

I'm about to start crying I'm so pissed.

Matt in N.C. said...

Wow. We're getting our ass handed to us.

Antonette said...

So this is shit.

Intermission will be the best thing to happen to us this period.

Jimmy Hugs said...

Are the Baby Pens playing in philly tonight?

JYo said...

The Pens are going to win this game.

BlacknGold66 said...

I still ain't scurred.

Get that one goal and open up the flood gates.

C'mon Cblog....


LET'S GO PENS!!!

Pensgirl said...

There's 40 minutes of hockey left, and this team has come back from this deficit before. HCMT is going to light some fires in the intermission.

And even if we don't pull this one out, just remember: there's no way that team can beat this team four times straight. Aint. Gonna. Happen.

JYo said...

Now the refs don't even know what the hell is going on so they just stop play.

BlacknGold66 said...

Nice High Stick asshole.

Jimmy Hugs said...

comicbookguyblog

Worst. Refs. Ever.

Johanna Montana said...

So why wasn't that a high sticking call?

The Big K said...

Thank you refs for 2 of the 3 goals!
How the fuck does Orp go off solo after that scrum?

But this game is far from over.
The Pens can light it up.

However it has the feeling of Pens Rags game 4.

Conklin time.

BlacknGold66 said...

Alright Cblog.

Everyone go pee.

Go smoke if that's your thing.

Put some ice in your drinks.

We were down 3-0 to the trap-happy Rangers.

This ain't shit.

Regroup and bring it all out in the 2nd.

Let's Go Pens!!!

michelle said...

dude if there's any conspiracy tn, it's that the refs are keeping the shitty teams alive for a game five

WTFblog

DO IT PENS. We know you can sweep these dumbfucks.

BlacknGold66 said...

P.S. --- Petr Sykora.

Hip said...

Plenty of time. People are going to get ripped a new asshole by HCMT and come out flying in the second.

Let's get the first one.

Stillson said...

First period was absolutely surreal. We'll get it back.

Brett said...

My buddy took a pic of a Stop sign in Indiana, PA that had two words written in black sharpie on black paper. It made the Stop sign look like this:

CAN'T

STOP

PENS

I thought it was cool. We should do that to every stop sign in the area :)

Gio said...

Dude, seriously, does NBC have this much influence on the games. First last night with Dallas taking down the Wings, and now tonight...

I'm not saying the Flyers aren't playing balls out, but the refs have no fucking clue what is going on anymore. This is ridiculous.

Lets get the 2nd going already.

JYo said...

You know how it works, the Pens want to win this game, the Cryers have to win this game. That is the best the Cryers could hope for. They get all the calls and take advantage of it. The Pens can easily come back though. They are just that much better than the Cryers. Hell, the Rags were better than the Cryers and the Pens did it to them.

Brandon said...

Looks like Philadelphia is pretty pumped up over California legalizing gay marriage.

Dr. Turkleton said...

@BNG66...well done, my friend...well done!


no excuses.

no blaming the refs.

not stooping the the Cryers & their fans level.

Orrps has to be smarter there. They ALWAYS get the 2nd guy.

the pens collectively are playing like SHIT.

if only Hossa buri....forget it.

Mario looked like he wanted to lace 'em up.

40 minutes to get 3 goals?.



[Hossa: DO IT! ]

Stillson said...

Malkin is going to take the game over. He has to.

michelle said...

It's like that one Sly Stallone movie where he's on a wire and the chick is hanging on and they come out swinging and you think maybe she'll make it
then she falls and dies
and rocky gets all woe is me
well, tonight, the flyers are that chick that fell.

DO IT

The Seeker said...

Well, if they aren't going to call goalie interference when someone runs right into a goalie, then the Pens ought to do it to Biron too.

I won't sound like a Cryer fan and complain about reffing, but they are saying that's legal so let's do it too.

ghenygator08 said...

i wonder if darren eliot is going to come down from the announcers booth and blow briere during the intermission, cause he was doing his best attempt over the air during the broadcast.

Antonette said...

Max with the goal that starts it all.
Orpik with the hit that shakes the whole state.

Justtryingtobreatheblog.

I'm ready for the second. Coach T has this.

eileenover said...

@Brandon

Hahaha thank you for making me laugh.

Johanna Montana said...

GO PENS!

I need a power nap.

GO PENS!!

Pensgirl said...

Turk I really didn't think the Pens were that bad. They did seem a bit taken aback at the Flyers' effort but that's just 'cuz it's the first time they've seen it. I'm sure they'll adjust and turn it into a contest. It's not that long ago we beat them in a game like this.

Keith Jones looks like he's about to orgasm. Someone come in and knock him off that chair.

TheNWChica said...

Pottied and gots a snack!

The Seeker said...

What defenseman let Briere put the garbage in the net anyhow?

michelle said...

Fiji water for everyone. FILL THEIR WATER BOTTLES

thegreenseas said...

There we go with the flyers "no-talent-required-clusterf*ck-front -of-the-net-scrum" style of play. It really makes my blood boil. TURN IT AROUND PENS! LET'S GO!

TheNWChica said...

Maybe changing my icon will help too.

eileenover said...

Yeah I changed mine too.

Carroll said...

That John Deer commercial was a total "66 Buries it" moment.

Jimmy Hugs said...

Looks like French Toast is using those bricks he made in his pants the last three games to build a wall.

TheNWChica said...

Holy crap....Sykie! You animal!

BlacknGold66 said...

I know HCMT hasn't had him do it all throughout the playoffs (and I know you don't fight as much in the playoffs)

But I'd really like to see BGL throw down to clean this shit up.

BlacknGold66 said...

WOOOOOOOOOOW!


FLUERY! FLUERY! FLUERY!

BlacknGold66 said...

Can someone send me the Chatblog link please?

Thanks.

TheNWChica said...

Come boys! DO IT!!!

Johanna Montana said...

Well, at least Fleury showed up.

eileenover said...

They need to actually shoot the puck. They keep trying to make pretty passes and it's driving me nuts.

Johanna Montana said...

Shooooot the puck. Hahaha...

AdamSocial said...

This blowjob VS is giving Philly must feel REEEEEEEEEEALLLY good.

TheNWChica said...

Okay...here's a thought that I just had.

Could the pneumonia/flu/tummyacheduetobadkimchee be the cause of the sort of lacklusterness we're seeing tonight. I know that I have a hard time just sitting in my cube at work when I'm sick.

Lloyd said...

BlacknGold66 said...

That didn't work Lloyd.

Johanna Montana said...

What was up with Brier's humpin' on Malkin?

Antonette said...

The shots of the classy crowd make my life.

Nice late hit on Sid as well.

JYo said...

Yet another hit after the whistle. Apparently those are legal now.

Jimmy Hugs said...

Did French Toast get his own meth lab today?

BlacknGold66 said...

GOD DAMNIT! They've gotten away with no less than two slashes on our boys wrists.

First on Max. Then just now on Dupuis.

Garbage.

eileenover said...

BGL needs to bring the pain NOW.

mess07039 said...

nice dive by crosby on the shove after the whistle...

JYo said...

Try this BNG.

JYo said...

Cool how the trolls come out with a lead in one game of the series. Hows that 3-0 series deficit tasting?

Hip said...

hugs: your man crush on Toast is showing

We need to get one here.

Carroll said...

chica - now I want kimchee.

Jimmy Hugs said...

@hip
Sorry. I'm not a Philly fan, but he is playing great tonight.

I'm just not good at jobbing, I guess.

LETS GO PENS

Johanna Montana said...

I've never gotten the Chatblog to work. Is it b/c I have Firefox?

JYo said...

Nice shot Richards! Super Star!

JYo said...

I didn't know they were calling slashes in this series. Not that it wasn't deserved...

J.S. said...

dammit

that is all

eileenover said...

These Cryers fan are hilarious. They whine about EVERYTHING then act like our players are whining. That's funny because I didn't see our players whining.

malkinian said...

flyers resilient flyers resilient flyers resilient flyers resilient. For fuck sake let it go. And why no Biron highlights from this series??

Johanna Montana said...

Eileen, it's frustrating isn't it? They cry about everything and still we're babies. Makes no sense.

Worst power nap ever.

Still 20 minutes left, so whatever.

eileenover said...

Sorry everyone, I've been really bitchy on here. I just know the Pens are better than this.

Antonette said...

My favorite part is how they're acting like the Flyers are one win away from the Cup final.

Wait- that's us. Whoops.

malkinian said...

and really the crosby sucks thing?? how bout the crosby infinitely better than any douchbag on the flyers & up 3-0 in the series

Joose said...

HAHA Ruutu looks like he has been through 10 wars, and I love it.

JYo said...

And why no Biron highlights from this series?

Because they would have nothing to show.

Lange and 29 say Cryers are playing as desperate as a team can play and the Pens intensity has taken a step backwards. I can't argue with that assessment.

Jimmy Hugs said...

Gary Roberts says "DO IT!"

eileenover said...

I need some chocolate.

Steve In Denver said...

The Pens need to either bring hustle, get dirty, and get in Marty's face, or they need to get physical, throw down, and make a mess of the Creamsicle, er Wackoffia Center.

Mess07039, the troll kibbles are to your left, under the bridge. Enjoy your 40 minutes...it's about time your team realized they were in the effing Conference Finals.

malkinian said...

jyo:

totally agree. would have loved to seen them come out smokin & just put em away but tough to keep up that intensity again & again, especially up 3-0. but we have 20 more minutes to get it done here. maybe time for geno to get back into it

Matt Gajtka said...

If I know one thing in this life, it's that I never feel like the Pens are out of it.

Especially not this team! DO IT and let's watch the Wings and Stars beat each other up with smiles on our faces.

Whistler said...

buckle up but enjoy a motorcycle ride helmet free.


Dicks!!!

JYo said...

3-0 lead in the 3rd period of a game they absolutely have to win and it sounds like you could hear a pin drop in that arena.

Antonette said...

@jyo
I was just about to point that out.

Jokes.

eileenover said...

YESSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Antonette said...

WOOOOOO.

Johanna Montana said...

Staalzy!!!!!!!!!

JYo said...

Get on the comeback train. WOOOOO!

eileenover said...

Do it for Grandpa Staal Jordan.

Matt Gajtka said...

Good for Jordan with all he's gone through...LET'S KEEP IT UP

Jimmy Hugs said...

Gronk kills it, stuffs it, and mounts it on the wall!

Sooska said...

yo yo yo cbloggers! Literally, I just got home and put on my Malkin shirt to start the 3rd & Staalsy scores. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

freddy's mole said...

big goal jordan

JYo said...

Sooska! The shirt is on, the Pens can start playing now! WOOOOOOOOOOO!

Antonette said...

Wow, I'm getting seizures from these camera angles.

JYo said...

Biron does look solid tonight, but really not all that spectacular. The Pens haven't really tested him all that much. A couple of quality shots could tie this game up.

Sooska said...

@jyo - I KNOW I was dying alive when we were out watching at a bar..no Malkin shirt and surrounded by Phlyers phans.

smith said...

win this period...first step to a spit-shine
