[JMO from Dormont]

The only change?
Chris Osgood might dry a double tuck instead of a triple.

Not enough time.

It's only fitting that the season lies in the hands of this man.
He's come through with some serious victories all season, and we are giving him the reins.

WINGS ON PARADE

Wee Gary Bettman has made some calls, and would you believe it the fix is in for Gary's Baby Boy. The refs are going to hand one of these next two games to your team on a platter. And I am willing to bet it is Game 3.

We will witness more "hooking", "obstruction", and "slashing" penalties (quotation marks intended) against the Wings than they have taken all playoffs. Because, and I have been watching, the Pens more often than not benefited from weak calls made by the refs during this season.

Shock... Awe!! I said it... the refs haven't given the Pens' opponents as much rope as they have given the Pens. And I am not even talking about this series. Yet. But it will happen and mark my words.

The WINGS ON PARADE (to the penalty box) is what I call this game.

The league can't have Gary's Baby Boy go down 3 games, even if the Pens play better today, expect the refs to be the extra man on the ice for the team.

I promise not to complain during the game about it, as I am venting in advance.

LET'S GO RED WINGS!

FUCK

Chase said...

I was in front of the jobber tour bus today. I looked in my rearview mirror and could see my giant pens sticker on the window and the bus behind me. It was beautiful. I think it's an omen of good things to come tonight.

meecrofilm said...

Gentlemen. It's time....


HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Hip said...

Believe.

Go Pens.

Whistler said...

Ladies and Gentlemen,

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 Red Wings,
For thine is the Crosby, and the Malkin, and the Fleury for ever and ever.

AMEN!

Now, LET'S GO PENS!!!!

Dr. Turkleton said...

chica-

hahahaha!!!!

oh, man!!!! that's toooooo funny!!!!

I THOUGHT about wearing my Yzerman jersey, newly purchased #19 Yzerman hat & getting out the White RW towel from Monday to work the reverse-karma....

BUT.

Then I thought WHEN the Pens WIN...I'd have to wear it to the Mellon on Saturday [c'mon tailgateblog?] for the game & that wouldn't be good....

thanks for your comment...that was a good ice breaker as the tension over here [ & I'm sure in TONS of homes in Pens Nation] was thicker than Holmstrom's ASS....

Jawsh said...

Pens goal in the first 10 minutes. mark it down.

smitty said...

Dr. T, WTF, Holmstrom's ass, I was eating!

Christ, I'm dieting again!

TheNWChica said...

Tool on the Ceeb said that Syd talked to Modano to get some advice against the Wings. Hopefully it works.

RaCHeLeYoS said...

do the damn thang pens!!!!

do it

PittHockey said...

WWGRD signs everywhere

nu said...

Frivolousfunblog:

Hey, can anybody watching the CBC keep an ear out for the Penguins "Favorite players as a kid"?

If the network deigns to let us know...

True story: One of the Wings said Gary Roberts.

PittHockey said...

modano is now my hero

Sooska said...

Oh! and GO PENS GO!!

J.S. said...

WWGRD signs everywhere outside of mellon

PittHockey said...

TheNWChica said...

@nu: unless it goes down, I'm watching the Ceeb, and Carroll will be if she's not already.

Docciavelli said...

Milbury, you're just like all these dummies who think a team can skate over the blueline on Detroit. Dump and hard chase worked in 2nd & 3rd last game. Keep it up Therrien. With matchups, we'll beat their asses to a pulp with it.

Do it. Now.

Dr. Turkleton said...

@smitty

hope it wasn't Rump Roast.....

OR.

Swedish Meatballs.

Oh, and they're showing the tunnels.

Jawsh said...

Hey guys...if I'm looking for pants to wear working, on the weekend, to dress up, and to go golfing..any idea on what kind to get?

Dr. Turkleton said...

3...2...1...

McGuires head EXPLODES !!!!!!!!!

TheNWChica said...

Not sure how loud it is on NBC, but on the Ceeb, it's giving me goosebumps.

PittHockey said...

@chica

I want cbc :(

PittHockey said...

nbc interviewed gary.

nu said...

@nwchica:

I commend you for putting up with Bob Cole all evening long!

nu said...

nbconlineblog:

Mellon is resounding.

TheNWChica said...

@pitthockey: If you're not up here with me, you can see it here.

http://www.justin.tv/richsportsonline

@nu: I would rather Bob Cole than the doofs on NBC. But I do miss my pal Jim Hughson something fierce.

racheleyos said...

jawsh....

i'm thinkin dockers?

TheNWChica said...

What? No Steven Crosby?

TheNWChica said...

Gee Nathalie....can you look more bored? I'll take your place up there with 66.

smitty said...

Dr. T , no, neither one...EVER!



GO PENS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

nu said...

Hey, lets all remember Pens are undeafeated on the Peacock. :) And two nights of Bob Cole was enough to make the NBC braintrust seem like an appealing change.

Sooska said...

chica- I didn't see Steve! where's Steve?

TheNWChica said...

Alright ladies, let's play some hockey!

PittHockey said...

chica: I'm unfortunately spoiled by HD

TheNWChica said...

I guess Steve stayed home tonight Sooska. ;)

PittHockey said...

dive!

VooX said...

WINGS ON PARADE

Docciavelli said...

Franzen forgot to crumple 3 seconds after being touched

Sooska said...

perhaps the evil twin Sidney showed up instead.

J.S. said...

I hope Malkin was at the end of his shift. There's no reason other than that why he shoudl have missed that.

PittHockey said...

look at sydor keep that puck in like letang can't!


oh wait.

TheNWChica said...

Nah...I like to think Steve is the evil twin. He only comes out once in a while.

Dr. Turkleton said...

MULE = ASS

J.S. said...

roughing? boooooooooooooooooooo

RaCHeLeYoS said...

sure did look like malkin got slashed before he got off from his shift.

powerplay=mud. c'mon guys. shoot the damn puck!

TheNWChica said...

Gronk! WTF?

PittHockey said...

i like the invisible replay nbc showed.

bluzdude said...

Good God, if we don't stop turning it over like we are, we might as well pack up.

Hold onto the #$%^& puck!

Sooska said...

any which way you look at it Sid/Steve had better play like they are both out there.

Docciavelli said...

Gill = Beast indeed.

J.S. said...

free candy!!

TheNWChica said...

I want a shorty!

J.S. said...

Holmostrom, showing what he learned at the Osgood School Of Diving.

Sooska said...

The Igloo looks and sounds terrific tonight!

PittHockey said...

I want a Hossagoal

PittHockey said...

I got a genover. :|

Docciavelli said...

TK is no joke on the forecheck. I swear he's on every puck before the D.

PittHockey said...

wtf edge rep...


FAILURE

TheNWChica said...

Mike Modano called Syd his 'travel mum' when they played together in DFW, since he always worried about little details.

Carroll said...

chica - just got here. missed the first 10 minutes.

babysittingblog SUCKS!!! Gotta love the family but seriously last 2 games these kids are getting in the way of watching hockey.

What was Don Cherry wearing today?

J.S. said...

LIKE A SOUND YOU HEAR THAT LINGERS IN YOUR EAR................CALIFORNIA SOUL!!!!!!!

TheNWChica said...

@carroll:


DonCherrysuitblog: Butter yellow shirt, and a madras plaid jacket in the same colors as a roll of LifeSavers 5 Flavor.

Sooska said...

chica- sounds like he toned it down tonight.

TheNWChica said...

TREVOR!

ILU Trev!

Jawsh said...

haha max is the best

Sooska said...

shit- just as we are showing something...

J.S. said...

bad call

DET on the PP

Carroll said...

chica - thanks, I just read the previous comments and noticed you said it earlier. Thanks for reposting for me.

Now I can't wait to see it for myself.

Steve/Sid do this shit!!! That sounds like a really nice twin combo. I'll take either the good or the evil anyday!

J.S. said...

That thing was 3 ft offsides, WTF?

TheNWChica said...

No worries Carroll...it's actually kind of pretty. I wouldn't mind a sundress made of that fabric. ;)

Jawsh said...

MAF is regulating right now

PaulinMiamiBeach said...

That thing was 3 ft offsides, WTF?

that was the worst blown offsides call I've ever seen. do they keep records for that kind of thing? sheesh. how did the linesman get that far out of position?

TheNWChica said...

Carroll? Can we please shoot the ranger???

TheNWChica said...

Fuck.....66 buries that.

Sooska said...

that was overwhelmingly frustrating to watch.

Jawsh said...

GO IN YOUR HOME! ARE YOU TO GOOD FOR YOUR HOME?!?!

TheNWChica said...

Go high! Go high!

Sooska said...

longest scoreless streak in playoff history for the Pens according to Mike

BlacknGold66 said...

Thus opened the flood gates.


HOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Jawsh said...

WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooo

TheNWChica said...

STEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEVE!

Sooska said...

FUCK YES! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO LITTLE SID, Steve's better half!!

RaCHeLeYoS said...

SLAP ME SILLY SIDNEY!!!

AdamSocial said...

BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Docciavelli said...

WOOOOOOO!

Can I Get A WITNESS?

Jawsh said...

That is why he is the face of the league, ladies and gentleman.

J.S. said...

It starts NOW!!

1-0 Pens!!

Sooska said...

Mike Lange announces a new record and Sid says Fuck this shit.

TheNWChica said...

Okay kids...let's buckle down and stay concentrated.

nu said...

Crying;.

Jawsh said...

jaws time

Joose said...

FUCK, YEAH!

RaCHeLeYoS said...

holy hell i think my heart stopped beating multiple times during that period.

inhale exhale rachele*

Docciavelli said...

HOOOOooooossshit.

PittHockey said...

wtf, midgame on ice interview?

get the fuck off the ice pierre

Sooska said...

OMG!!!!!!!! Bumblefuckitis Hossa is wearing handcuffs and boxing gloves again HOW does Hossa miss?

TheNWChica said...

I want a Fiesta Mexicana tonight damnit!

Jawsh said...

Alright, like 1:15 of pp time with fresh ice

Docciavelli said...

Where did our +/-, shots on goal, "bombardment" trolls go? Apparently they left with Detroit's scoring...typical.

tlove1637 said...

66 buries it... i thought he was a world class player???

tlove1637 said...

hoss needs to step it up tonight

BlacknGold66 said...

@Sooska: Hossa misses it because he got hooked out of this week.

Marq said...

1st period = more along the lines the pens should have been playing all series

minus the missed open nets.

nu said...

CBC Viagra commercials > NBC Cialis commercials

Sooska said...

wow do I feel better and I LOVE late goals like that. NOW we stay focused and go for the jugular.

The Big K said...

GREAT PERIOD.
Punch it in now on the PP.

Jawsh said...

Cherry and his technicolor dreamcoat

bluzdude said...

Fuck Yeah!

Glad we finally got one, but damn, we shoulda had two. The chances are there...

nu said...

Referenceblog: Is it a pulse, or a heartbeat?

TheNWChica said...

I'm still tired of the Viagra commercials though.

Docciavelli said...

Yes NBC...let's pick up where Versux left off, talking about how great Detroit was in that period. Douchebags.

Sooska said...

@bng66 - you know what..a million times he hasn't been hooked.

tlove1637 said...

i guess if NBC would have shown a replay i would have noticed that...

Party of Ruutu said...

Why are there always like 80 players in their crease?

Steve assists Hossa on the next on.

Nick Saia (usa) said...

two more periods... lets get this puck in the net on the fresh ice PP.

sabrejets said...

They gotta keep moving on these old men and keep shooting, force him to face shots and make saves...

Glad as hell Dockers San Francisco made the transition to NBC here in Dayton, OH...

tlove1637 said...

scuds is a beast tonight though. i think pensblog was a game early on the guarantee...

Dubs said...

that was an amazing end of the period ... that's what we have to do to this team of whiners and divers ... beat the hell out of them in their own zone ... that was beautiful ...

the Wings are not this tough ... they're whiners, divers and cryers ... and we get to em' when we play physical and jam it down their throats ... that was so great

Sooska said...

that came out ass backwards but he (Hossa) is frustrating me beyond words more than some of the others. 66 buries it. I can't imagine how the players must feel at this point.

Party of Ruutu said...

on is the new way to spell one

TheNWChica said...

Why does Gary Roberts hit after he passes the puck? BECAUSE HE CAN!

Pensgirl said...

First I saw the energy come back, and then they got a goal. Exactly the order it had to happen.

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

nu said...

Yeah, if we employed the "6 guys in net bubble wrap" strategy, we could pay MAF $800,000 too!

Anyone notice Osgood looking a little seasick at the end?

PittHockey said...

wow, they hate the horserace guy.

finally.

TheNWChica said...

Wait...who hates the racehorse guy?

Joose said...

You know what? I'm not ashamed to say the song in the Dockers commercial is kind of catchy, and I say the words out loud before they come onto the screen.

Dr. Turkleton said...

peacelove
peacelove

lalalalalalafontaine !!!!!!!

peacelove

Party of Ruutu said...

@ nu- I totally saw that. He got rocked. He gets shaken up real easily.

RaCHeLeYoS said...

this new coldplay song is being overplayed already....

Sooska said...

@ party: on + on = tuu

Docciavelli said...

Is Coldplay wearing Dockers?

Carroll said...

chica - a nice summer purse maybe, an entire dress might be a little much.

you need to learn to love the CBC commercials...

babysittingblog - baby woke up so I saw 2 minutes of the first period. I saw the goal by Steve/Sid however.

PP needs to bury another one!!

VooX said...

Good jobs Pens on the lateral movement with the puck. Sleeping in his own crib last night made Sidney sleep well and come out firing.

PittHockey said...

chica: horserace guy was being an ass, other intermission announcers told him to shut up

Joose said...

Yo, Party of Ruu. I keep thinking that is an owl sitting on his shoulder in your picture...even though it would be a very large shoulder. (Make that happen, maybe....with an eye patch to go with the bruises). Ruu is kind of like a pirate, anyway.

PittHockey said...

pun not intended :p

RaCHeLeYoS said...

lol coldplay wearing dockers....and they use edge shaving gel!!

PittHockey said...

if coldplay drinks jolt, I'm buying their new album.

Docciavelli said...

@rachel:

Coldplay, now THAT could get a man going!

Party of Ruutu said...

@sooska - Ha. It took me a minute to get that. Me special.

nu said...

I saw our team again the last ten minutes of that period.

I thought they were gone to where the ghosts go.

Just that makes me so happy.

TheNWChica said...

I'm trying Carroll....I really am! :) And yeah...maybe a nice green dress with that fabric for the purse would be nice...ooh, or some low pumps would be cute too.

@pitt: Good! Fucking racehorse dork!

PittHockey said...

ovie in the house rooting for malkin. cool.

Party of Ruutu said...

@ joose - I'll see what I can do!

Joose said...

GAME ON!

Pensgirl said...

Ovechkin's there? How odd.

BlacknGold66 said...

OVP?

Docciavelli said...

Mike Eruzione: younger than Chris Chelios.

PittHockey said...

Offseason Valuable Putter?

TheNWChica said...

@pensgirl: They had they NHL awards lunch today in PGH, and Ovie got his ArtRoss and Richard trophies.

Sooska said...

FINALLY!!! nothing like a wrestling match and a takedown

RaCHeLeYoS said...

MALONE IS A BEASTTT

Good job boy!!! Draw the penalties instead of receiving them.

Docciavelli said...

Kronwalled!

Sidney Crosby says "EAT SHIT!"

Jawsh said...

BING!!!!!

TheNWChica said...

I love you Steve!!!!

PittHockey said...

Jawsh said...

Bing to detroit....here's your parade, jokes.

TheNWChica said...

Yeah...I suppose this is Sid, not Steve. I still love you anyway!

Sooska said...

Sid's new composition for violins is "Left Alone at the Post.."

Chubs said...

...ok, so who was the impostor team playing the first two games?

PittHockey said...
