Daily number tonight in PA:

7171 [ palottery ]

Not sure what that means, but at this point we will take anything we can get.

If we are going down, we are going down swingin'.

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

There has been a lot of debate of who gets the call tonight.
Kick the tires and light the fires has failed us.

Andy and Red are in Zihuatanejo.

Hacksaw is in the hospital.
Ed Harris is the closer.

We went to Charlie for advice.

And without hesitation...





He put the song on, and it made sense.

I'm stuck in my first night of Secured Transactions class here at the law school. I'm hoping cblog will fill in the gaps of NHL's play-by-play.

Poop.

That felt good. and I will say it again. LET'S GO PENS!

For what its worth-

When I started my internship this summer, they assigned me a password for the computer system consisting of parts of my name, then a random 3 digit number.

My number? 071.


Do it.

WOOOOOOOOOO! Lets 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!!!!

nu said...

Nice to see the a-holes on NBC are all wearing red ties. Bring this up the next time somebody says McGuire favors the Pens.

Sooska said...

OMGAWD Pierre Macguire is an idiot and Mibury is still the Professor of Incompetence. Gary, I pray to you, make those 2 stupid people shut up.

Dan said...

if this is it, so be it. we may not have the cup, but we have each other.
LET'S GO PENS!

freddy's mole said...

Let's do this.

...that kid that threw the octopus on the ice is pretty pathetic. Whenever I think of Cleveland I think of a Browns fan whose postseason consists of cheering against the Steelers at a bar.

That lotto thing is fate...Malkin is scoring tonight.

smitty said...

Peeair = Milbury = T U R D S!

Dr. Turkleton said...

Sid - Geno - Big Poppa Pump on a SUPER LINE???

Why not?


Who was that running thru the DET RW locker room??? I thought Kid Rocks, Joe C passed away???

oh, wait....it was Hudler.

Good luck tonight everybody...

Thanks, Potash.

Wooooooooo. Fighting to the bitter end. Let's do it, boys.

Natalie said...

I've been lurking around these parts for quite a while, but I just want to voice my own hope here.

I will be in Mellon Arena, section E12, on Wednesday night at this time, in the process of completely losing my voice as the Penguins win to force a game 7.

You gotta believe.

Twice!

Matt in N.C. said...

All:

Haven't been around to read posts too much the last few days. However, from some of what I've read people are calling for Malkin to be traded.

To that I offer a hearty FUCK YOU.

RANT
He is the reason we made the playoffs in the first place. Without him we would not have even made the dance.

That being said he hasn't played well in this series. I feel like he might be playing hurt. I hope we don't find out until next week after we win Game Seven.

Give they guy his due. He is outstanding. The way I see it there are 19 other guys who are not getting the job done either. In particular three are not doing much; Malone, Sykora and Dupuis.

I don't hear anyone calling for them to be gone and I'd trade or release any one of them in a skinny damn minute before contemplating moving Malkin.

/RANT

GO PENS!
One game a time.

Malkin is going to rule the Joe tonight.

KTLA said...

With all due respect, sir, I believe this is gonna be our finest hour.

Pensgirl said...

Inspired choice by Charlie. That's why he's a beast.

Amen, Bishop Whistler. Aaaaaaa-men.

Sooska said...

Mike Lange just mentioned the 66 years since the Wings blew the 3-1 lead in the 1942 SCF.

sven butenschon said...

This is Gary's last chance
Let's do this shit

Katie said...

stuck in the office for at least the first period...but...got the tv on NBC, but Mike Lange on the computer. Let's Go Pens!!!

Pensgirl said...

P.S., staff, my brother is in Europe without a computer and he just texted me a few minutes ago: "Who did Pensblog go with?" Such is the power of this site.

He, too, liked Charlie's pick.

Party of Ruutu said...

I take back that Malkin will score in the last game, because if he's scoring tonight then it ain't over!!

debrisslide said...

Advertising Flomax before the Red Wings play at the Joe? COINCIDENCE?

AdamSocial said...

I've got a sense of nervous energy that's been unmatched since before game one of the Thenathorth series.

One minute into that game, Lord Gary made everything okay.

Let's do this.

Nice stat... acc to Mike Lange, the team that has won the face off has lost the game. Keep the faith Pens fans!!

KTLA said...

PETAblog

Al will be the one of the first jailed when the apes take over. Damn dirty apes.

Pensgirl said...

Would somebody please tell Pierre that there is no "e" in "Orpik?" That's been damn near as bad as Edzo's infatuation with "Pas-qual."

Party of Ruutu said...

@ktla - best. icon. ever.

dying alive said...

Gee, are the Wings playing for the Stanley Cup tonight? You'd never know it by their undead fans. Way to sit on your hands, turds.

dying alive said...

OH MY GOD. They are fucking standing up and waving at the camera AGAIN.

What a bunch of losers, seriously. That is epic failure (as is the too many men penalty the Pens just took).

JYo said...

WTF Pens? Get your heads in the game. Its kinda important.

KTLA said...

HCMT would approve of this icon. Flattering photo of our admiral I say.

JYo said...

You can hear the PA announcer plain as day over the radio. Are they just simulating the crowd on TV or are there actually fans there?

Pensgirl said...

Karmic payback on that non-call on Cleary's douchebaggery last game.

JYo said...

Karmic payback on that non-call on Cleary's douchebaggery last game.

I'll take it.

dying alive said...

Holy christ, with the giveaways.

Sooska said...

@ dying alive- the Wings trolls accused US of feeling entitled! at least we make noise at games.

Chubs said...

@jyo- I don't think they're even simulating a crowd...looks like some empty seats there (OK, how do you not sell out when you have a chance to clinch a championship? Detroit phails)

Carroll said...

no more turnovers!!

JYo said...

how do you not sell out when you have a chance to clinch a championship?

Indeed. That says a lot about their fans when they can't even fill up a bandwagon. Also, nice icon Chubs!

Pensgirl said...

Yeah, DA, but you know what? I still feel better about this game than last one so far. I can feel the Pens' presence out there - their energy is right. I see them moving their feet and their heads are up (in a "we can do this" way). And I don't feel like they're panicked. They need to settle in more, but so far I'm OK with this.

Sooska said...

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

HHHHHOOOOOOOOOOSSSSSSSSSSSSAAAAAAAAAAAA

GREAT hit by Dupuis. PERFECT play to keep possession.

One is not enough.

Wake up, Geno.

Pasqualie made that one happen.;)

debrisslide said...

FIESTA MEXICANA MOTHERFUCKERS

JYo said...

Thats the way to get the puck on net. It looked like Ozjoke was lost on the previous two shots too and finally they find the twine. WOOOOOOOOOO!

dying alive said...

@ sooska - I know. I love the excuse that they "win too much." Because winning is wicked boring, right?

Party of Ruutu said...

Yeah! Flower!

Katie said...

WOOOOOOOOO!!!! HOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Let's Go Pens!!! Get another!!!!

Pensgirl said...

Hey, dumbass me forgot to unmute my computer to hear Mikey's call. What did he say?

KTLA said...

@ debrisslide - LOL. Eloquently put.

bell said...

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

M. Vanderlasser said...

Before Hussa's goal, did that RETARD announcer really just broadcast to the world that Sykora is injured?

JYo said...

@Pensgirl: She wants to sell my monkey.

nu said...

Man, seeing Osjoke waving at that puck as it went by was one of the most beautiful things I've seen all year.

Party of Ruutu said...

Love that Bud Light commercial.

TheNWChica said...

Aw man! I missed a goal? Stupid boss and stupid traffic.

justincredibleh said...

Dr. Turkleton said...

dying alive said...

Before Hussa's goal, did that RETARD announcer really just broadcast to the world that Sykora is injured?

I actually laughed at that because he was standing right next to Sykora, and you could totally tell that Petr could hear every word he said but was trying not to acknowledge that he could.

Sooska said...

@dying alive- well their team is wicked boring that's for sure.

sven butenschon said...

fuckingbeutifulblog

Party of Ruutu said...

Yes, m. he did say Sykie is hurt.

Jobber.

Pensgirl said...

Thanks Jyo!

dying alive said...

Did anyone else see the eyes on Free Candy there? From what I understand he's supposed to be a super nice guy (as they all are), but he just looks so intense it's scary.

dying alive said...

I'm very confused by the lines tonight.

TheNWChica said...

I love you Fleur!

Not sure if NBC showed it, but Fleur gently pulled Maltby's helmet out of the net with his stick and shot it. lol

M. Vanderlasser said...

@nwchica, the Pens have 2 PKs so far, the Wings, 1.

You've missed 84 Dockers commercials so far.

Pensgirl said...

I actually decided listening to them isn't worth it. I can't quite bring myself to listen to the online radio broadcast being that it's 30 seconds behind, but it's so much nicer to watch with no sound than it is to have to listen to Pierre. I don't need to hear the whistles, right?

Carroll said...

MAF, shot Matlby's helmet to the boards during the scrum..haha

It looked like Max wanted to take on everyone.

TheNWChica said...

Is anyone watching the Ceeb? Just wondered about CherrySuitblog.

Chubs said...

@dying alive-

Candy's takin Gary lessons.

Katie said...

WOW!

dying alive said...

@ pensgirl - If you have DVR or Tivo, you can pause the TV for thirty seconds or so until it synchs up with the radio broadcast.

Carroll said...

chica - Don cherry - white suit with grey stripes. Very bland.

JYo said...

Malone looks good tonight. He's really attacking the net at every chance.

Katie said...

@chica -- They showed. I thought it was helpful of MAF to not making him go into the net to get it. He just put it somewhere more accessible.

Sooska said...

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pensgirl said...

YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW!!!!

dying alive said...

Adam Hall, you are my hero. Sincerely.

Party of Ruutu said...

Hallsy!!!!!1

AdamSocial said...

Keep it up, boys.

Adam Hall <3

TheNWChica said...

Whoooooooooooooooooooo!

Carroll said...

chica - he is wearing a red carnation on the lepel (sp?).


WWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO Hall!!!

M. Vanderlasser said...

HALL-O-RAMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

KTLA said...

HALL.

JYo said...

Hall!!! WOOOOOOOOOO!!!

I heart Adam Hall!!!!! Let's Go Pens!!!!!

Holy shit, did Kronwall just do a Backstrom?

Docciavelli said...

All I can watch in class right now is Iso-Cam. It was just on God/Gary. Enjoyable!

BlacknGold66 said...

"Did he shoot that in his own net?"

"He shot that in his own net!"

WOOOOOOOO!

Dr. Turkleton said...

kronwall > backstrom

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Carroll said...

I mean thanks Kromwall!!!

Pensgirl said...

Kronwall = Backstrom WOOOOOOOOOOO

Sooska said...

BACKSTROM PART DEUX!!!!!!!

sven butenschon said...

ruutuu is in his grill that was awesome

Party of Ruutu said...

Haha shot it in his own net...

JYo said...

Nice shot Kornhole! Roofed it!!!

Que Sid: "Did he shoot that in his own net? Hahahahaha!"

J.S. said...

KRONWALL BURIES IT!!

Chubs said...

Hall stole Malkin's acid. Good Gary.

TheNWChica said...

@carroll: thank you! maybe that's omenblog...he knows to keep the fancier stuff for game 7? :)

@katie: Yes...that was very helpful of him ;)

freddy's mole said...

elroy doesn't know whether to cry or wind his watch

nice shot kronwell

KTLA said...

Ah, the deafening silence of JLA.

Its so beautiful....

bell said...

hahah i wonder what ruutu said

Pensgirl said...

Ha ha, Turk, I think I agree with you more than my own self. Backstrom didn't roof it!

aunt penny said...

I would love to know what Rutuu said to Franzen.

nu said...

DID HE SHOOT THAT IN HIS OWN NET? HE SHOT THAT IN HIS OWN NET!!!

Party of Ruutu said...

debrisslide said...

Nice of you to do the work for us, Hockeytown. . .

DOCKERS TIME, everyone.

TheNWChica said...

A carnation? Usually it's a rose. Hmmmm...

Katie said...

dilemmablog -- do I stay in the office an continue to watch online, or try to make it home between periods?

Sooska said...

@bng66 -that's my ringtone cause we were at that game! I hope I cna get this one too! WOOOO

Raybin said...

Nice of the Wings to let Nick Backstrom get some playoff experience.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA...eat it.

jaos said...

kromwell with the assist!

marq said...

kronwall = backstrom

J.S. said...

LIKE A SOUND YOU HEAR THAT LINGERS IN YOUR EAR!!!

CALIFORNIA SOUL!!

lolz at the Hall "point and laugh at Kronwall" after the goal.

Docciavelli said...

@katie:

Where online are you watching? I can only find iso-cam...

Carroll said...

chica- it could be a rose...I wasn't paying much attention. It was red...

nu said...

actually, it's not *quite* deafening...I could swear I heard somebody chanting "Osgoooood....Osgoooooooooooood!" :P

M. Vanderlasser said...

Wow, that's a shitty statue.

Dr. Turkleton said...

IT'S SO QUIET...YOU CAN HERE THE TECHNO!!!!!

♥ THAT TECHNO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

eh, bng66

JYo said...

Katie, I'd make a mad dash home and get comfy for the rest of the game.

jaos said...

looks like it went off halls skate when kronie tried to clear it

dying alive said...

Haha, nu, I am pretty sure I heard that too. Seriously, I thought I must have misheard.

Katie said...

Damn it Steve! 66 and 68 bury it.

dying alive said...

Crosby just stole Zetterberg's identity. How will that affect their +/- stats?

Party of Ruutu said...

@ Docciavelli watch here

debrisslide said...

That's 20 minutes, gentlemen. How beautiful they have been.

KTLA said...

CLUTCH FIRST PERIOD.

As the great Kenny Loggins said once long ago "Keep the fire burning bright..."

Matt Gajtka said...

Crowd=stunned
Me=elated

Does anyone else see empty seats all over the place...in the first few rows?? They don't deserve the Cup. Let's not let them have it.

marq said...

how can you not love this team?

Hip said...

Finally back from the hospital for my mom's surgery.

Couldn't have asked for a better first it seems.

Keep it up boys. One day at a time. Keep it up.

GO PENS GO!!

Robert said...

what is pierre's deal? Trying to goad crosby into saying he needs more ice time

Katie said...

Great first period guys! Keep it up.

Boss just poked his head in my office. He can see I'm otherwise occuppied but now he wants to chat about something work-related in ten minutes. Ugh!!!

Just realized I can pull up Hocky Night in Canada and catch the game in Mandarin or Punjabi. English link won't connect, but other two will. Interesting.

Hip said...

PS - I love that Sid was like, whatev with your questions dude, I'm just focused on winning tonight.

michelle said...

pierre just can't let things go can he?

Party of Ruutu said...

OR watch here

Pensgirl said...

I think for breakfast they just dropped acid while staring at pictures of Mario hoisting the Cup. That's what they're playing like, anyway.

I have never seen Steve skate harder, and that is saying something.

TheNWChica said...

Pierre is such a douchnozzle....he's the first guy hit if Steve ever looses it on someone.

M. Vanderlasser said...

WA WA WEE WA!!! (say it like Borat) - couldn't have asked for a better first period than that, eh?

Looks like I picked the wrong day to quit drinking.

nu said...

2-0 lead = most dangerous in hockey...

C'mon, boys, go all North Stars on their asses!!

Katie said...

@party of ruutu -- thanks. I haven't figured out how to do links yet. Still learning.

Doppler said...

ok I hate to bring this up but Malkin just is not right out there.

He's playing like he has a bet on the game if you know what I mean.

He's not aggressive on the loose puck. Soft passes into the middle of the ice.

TheNWChica said...

@katie and party of ruu: go with richsportsline...it's the clearest.

Joose said...

"This whole crowd is STUNNED."

Party of Ruutu said...

Cherry is wearing a cherry tie.


Clever.

sabrejets said...

2-Zip Pens on top of Swedish National Diving Team. They're giving the Dead Things trouble in the neutral zone finally!

Sooska said...

20 minutes down-40 to go.
one shift. one period. one game.

Hope lives on in Hossa and Hall.

What Mike should have said on Hall's goal was I've seen that fish before.

LET'S GO PENS!

debrisslide said...

I love how NBC is just talking about what the Penguins are doing wrong, as opposed to the fact that we have 2 goals and Fleury has morphed into a solid brick wall.

Pensgirl said...

Hiya Hip! Hope your mom's surgery went well.

aunt penny said...

time to turn

justincredibleh said...

Three words and a letter: suck it lee p.

michelle said...

@hip
hope everything went well

penslove for sure
