commit to the Cros.

TheFandangler said...

Go to fall fest and chill before going to the arena for the game!

Woooo.

Anthony said...

Thanks again for the links, Captain Planet.

Can't wait for this season to get underway!

Bacon077 said...

you think the pitt student govt would find some better groups... you know,perhaps some college bands? I'm glad students waste their tuition money for this horseshit.

Lady Jaye said...

now if i can get back to sleep so i can watch the game without passing out... that would be sweet.

Haha, Death Star... I knew it reminded me of something. That is perfect. I wonder how many Pens fans shelled out the $$ to make the trip to Sweden.

Anthony said...

I can't sleep. Took some nighty night pills and everything, still wired.

I'll sleep when the game is over and I've got a few White Russians in my system.

Kierstan said...

This is going to be difficult. I work overnights, so I'm usually asleep during the time the game's on, but I'll be damned if I miss the season opener. Time for copious amounts of caffeine...I can sleep when the game's over!

TheFandangler said...

Bacon: That's the point... I'm in one of the opening college bands. There are 2 college bands before the main acts. The main acts blow but I guess they're popular. I've never heard of them before this show.

Pitt is a shit-hole... but their fall fests are usually pretty fun.

onesizedrummer said...

lets do this shit, nothing better then a computer draft getting you Jordan Staal and MAF, then seeing this....fuck 230 can't some soon enough!!!!!

Great job on the season preview, staff!

Good luck this season, everybody.

C'mon, 2:30!!!

Hail Satan.

(Don't forget the warm-up game today - Pens South (TAM) vs. NYR at noon...)

Stilly said...

Kenndey for Sykora today

Looks like Syko needs more time to nurse his groin, so Kennedy will take his place on Geno's line.

2:30

Go Pens.

jefe p said...

i hope my Satan jersey-tshirt is safe for work.

send the senators to hell!

go pens.

bohica said...

I have never been more amped for the beginning of a pens season than I am for this year.

Let's fucking go!

tripledeke said...

Does anyone know if it will be blacked out on the center ice package because it is on nhl network?

Rage said...

@tripledeke: yes, I think it is. Akus posted a link to a story yesterday that said that CI won't do games televised by NHLN or Versus

Hostile Apostle said...

It's about time, let's go Pens!




"You did not shoot that green shit at me!"- Cpt. Steven Hiller

Flyer Hater said...

If the Pens lose this game.

The Pens aren't making the playoffs.

jaos said...

even though the offseason for the pens wasn't as long as it was for the sens, it still seems like an eternity.

LETS GO PENS!

ellen said...

This is pretty cool...

http://japersrink.blogspot.com/2008/10/hopefully-this-isnt-metahpor-for-season.html

It seems like a really long time since the Pens had a "Meet the Pens" party for the STHs like back in Mario's day. Kennywood would so rock!

stokes said...

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Anna. said...

I've waited 5 months for this day.

Let's play.
Go Pens.

chris e said...

Let's do this shit!

ellen said...

Rob Rossi wants input from Pens bloggers. See "Story Time" in the link below.

Give him your best, Staff.

ellen said...

Ok, that sucks, gotta learn to link one of these days. Trib Chipped Ice blog for Rossi...

xuscbausp said...

i have a fever, a swollen tonsil and i can barely open my mouth...

even that isn't ruining today. PSU at noon and then the reason I bought Centre Ice.

DO IT

Chubs said...

Gameday post? Check
chris e? Check
flyer hater sarcastic overreaction? Check

Now, to watch PSU destroy Purdue to kill the time until the game...

xuscbausp said...

hell yeah chubs. LETS GO STATE.

by the by: there going to be a in-game chat today?

xuscbausp said...

dear NHL Network:

stop showing the clip from the final ten seconds of game six of the SCF. we all remember.

mike2081 said...

Finally life can begin again now that "It's a Hockey Night in Pittsburgh"

fleuryous said...

TK For Syko?


I LOVE Syko, but I want Kennedy to kick some ass.


BURY ONE, TK.

debrisslide said...

TK = totally burying one, at least 2 points tonight on that line.

Eric P. said...

Bis and Gogo better dress Sunday

The Goon Blogger said...

ESPN.com's front page is hockey related? Strange things are a foot at the Circle K.

DO IT.

lis said...

not even 1 minute into the game and Mark Recchi gets planted on his ass!!

You can tell hockey's back!

Dugan said...

Do it Pens!

Mike Georger said...

gentlemen, lets do this shit

M. Vanderlasser said...

Tyler Kennedy = Mr. Scrappy

thomes08 said...

SO PUMPED about not only the pens but hockey in general. I just called up comcast and upgraded my mom's cable while i'm at her place just so i can watch the games today.

GO PENS!

The Big K said...

Do it.

Hand of Godard said...

Just got back from my pre-game skate at the Mellon Arena and I am as happy as a pig in shit. I fucking love the Pens organization.
Just gotta organize a shitload of photos and videos now.
1 hour 25 minutes to go!

In less than two hours, the book is officially closed on the 200708 season. What happened in the Cup Finals no longer means anything. It's done. It's over.

In less than two hours, it's time to forget about past players who are no longer here.

In less than two hours, it's time to start embracing the new Penguins, allowing new fan favorites to develop and letting these new guys make their own mark on this franchise.

In less than two hours, it's time to sit back and enjoy what a team with Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Marc-Andre Fleury all a year closer to their respective primes can do.

In less than two hours, it's time for new storylines to write themselves, to clear space for new highlight-reel plays to be remembered and recalled five years from now.

In less than two hours, the waiting and anticipating that's been simmering for four months boils over.

In less than two hours, it's Penguins season again, folks, and we're on a Trailways bus bound for Fort Hancock, Texas, and ultimately, Zihuatanejo.

I've got nothing else...

Red, take us home.

Lauren said...

Hello again ladies and gentlemen! I've been away too long.

Let's go Pens!

TheNWChica said...

Commit to the Pens! Whoooooooo!

The Goon Blogger said...

Commit

stoosh is handing out sage like comments, it's hockey season folks.

Matt in N.C. said...

Ditto chris e!

Yeah the long summer of discontent is over!

GO PENS!

Colin said...

Tonight begins Jordan Staal's goal scoring rampage.

Help Me Rhonda said...

WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Slashing_Major said...

Time to take care of some unfinished business. I never thought I'd say this but Ruutu is now the enemy.

xuscbausp said...

PSU needs to put this game away soon.
40 minutes...

TheNWChica said...

Sykie is not playing either game. The Ceeb is reporting something to do with his groin. Poor Sykie!

debrisslide said...

Stoosh = solid with the YouTube.

debrisslide said...

The X = not solid with Sweden

The Seeker said...

Let's DO THIS SHIT!


GO PENS!

The Seeker said...

@ debrisslide

The X doesn't have spellcheckers

J-Dub said...

i though the game started at 2 eastern? why are we still getting this stamjoke and rags game?

Kat said...

I'm up early on a Saturday...Must be Hockey season. FINALLY.

debrisslide said...

j-dub, the game is at 2:30, says so on the Pens website, and in this post, as a matter of fact. . .

TheNWChica said...

@jdub: Did you read the post at all? It says 2:30 right at the top.

debrisslide said...

And anyway, I don't think opening face-off is until like. . .2:54? Correct me if I'm wrong.

debrisslide said...

Anyone watching Rags v. TB? Stamjoke just got robbed and it was hilarious.

Kierstan said...

And for the first time this season, I commit to the Stoosh. Word.

In other news, the Rags-Pittsburgh South game is a joke. Rags currently have nearly 3 times as many SOG as the Bolts.

The Big K said...

17:30 seconds left!

TheNWChica said...

Should be fun to see how Mike Smith handles being the #1 guy after being a backup to Turco and having guys like Zubie, Daley and Robidas on D in front of him.

The Big K said...

Dubinsky just scored on Smith to give the Rags a 2-1 lead with 6 minutes left.

Rags have dominated because..............
TAMPA HAS NO FUCKING DEFENSE.

Rangers really need to win this. Tampa is so boring and pathetic that my desire for the Rangers to lose at things is overridden.

gjhead said...

WTF channel is FSNP on Comcast HD? Why the hell is it not in my listings? HELP

TheNWChica said...

Okay okay....we're done with the Rags. Send it to Sweden!

KaylaJ said...

well TB loses, so far its a good day :)

TheNWChica said...

Is it just me or does anyone else want to take down the person who decided that those commercials on NHLN with the coach are good and should be played? They're not fucking funny!!! Stop playing them!

Sorry...just have some pent up adrenaline I guess.

Lauren said...

What band was that? My feed was all jumpy...

debrisslide said...

I can't get a justin.tv feed to work for the life of me.

Rage said...

@chica-there are SO many commercials on there that will DEEEstroy your last nerve, so I feel ya. Hang in there...

@debris- you hit the nail on the head...nicely put





Go Pens!

Christian said...

On Comcast, the HD feed is on MOJOHD, fyi.

TheNWChica said...

Debris...I'm watching http://www.justin.tv/wildmatt

debrisslide said...

It's working now. This national anthem lady kind of sucks. If it goes out during the game I will sob.

Lauren said...

debris, are you on pkcable? If so, it's not working for me either. I get a few seconds, then it cuts out again.

TheNWChica said...

Why do these singers think that singing the anthems is an American Idol tryout? They do it at Tips games too.

debrisslide said...

pkcable works for me now. . .actually quite well. The quality is great. I'm crossing my fingers.

debrisslide said...

tip for justin.tv, watch in the popout window, livechat ruins the feed.

TheNWChica said...

Thank you Debris! I watch Justin TV a lot, and that is good to know.

TheNWChica said...

Scoooooooooooooooooooooooooooore!

Kat said...

wow TK buries it already..NICE.

thomes08 said...

KENNEDY!!!!!!

lookin good

debrisslide said...

TK BURIES IT

Pensgirl said...

What a way to start the season.

Lauren said...

woooooooo!

Thanks debris, it started working JUST in time for the goal!

Matthew Baker said...

So is Center Ice not televising this game?

lis said...

from the grassy knoll

Pensgirl said...

No Matthew, it is not on Center Ice. The game is on the NHL Network.

Matthew Baker said...

that is weak. shouldn't have moved into craps territory in the first place. thank god for my HTPC. thanks pensgirl.

go pens.

debrisslide said...

lol@5 on 3

TheNWChica said...

Shit

debrisslide said...

boooo.

Matthew Baker said...

weaksauce.

debrisslide said...

Let's make this PP happen.

Kat said...

ANOTHER PP...Let's do something.

debrisslide said...

Our PP looks kind of ridiculous so far.

Chris said...

The PP is looking lost without Gonchar.

debrisslide said...

Ottawa gets more shots on OUR powerplay than they do on even strength.

TheNWChica said...

Dude...the PP of my babyboys looks more together than this, and they were mud last night.

debrisslide said...

what the hell, guys? Seriously.

Flyer Hater said...

The Malkin on the point experiment needs to end now.

The Goon Blogger said...

I threw up in my mouth because of the preformance of the PP so far. But eh, gotta take it with a grain of salt, lots of new faces trying to figure eachother out.

Kierstan said...

PP = mud so far. 5 chances, including a 5-on-3 for a while, and nada. Not even many SOG...boo.

Anthony said...

Watching Malkin having to play the puck awkwardly on his backhand while on the point makes me cringe.

Change that shit, Therrien. The PP isn't working right now.

Docciavelli said...

I think the color commentary has it right--the PP is the last thing you work on during camp. Give Malkin a chance on the point. The longer your better passers/puck handlers are on the ice during the PP, the better.

One period in the tank.

Milbury, lay off Sid's facial hair.

TheNWChica said...

Anyone want to start a pool as to when Kelly Hrudey unearths one of his blockers and beats the living shit out of Milbury? I hope it's soon...he's such a fucking tool.

Kierstan said...

I agree there...the facial hair is in the past, let it be :D

Anthony said...

Sadly, Milbury has it right. Talent is wasted when Malkin and Sid are on the points. Letang and Sydor on points would be much better.

TheNWChica said...

Meh..I have to go... have to go babysit some teenage hockey players aka herding cats. Hopefully HCMT talks to them about how soff the PP is and how they need to get their sheet togeder.

GO PENS!!!!

Kimberly. said...

Has anybody noticed how many mistakes there's been on the screen.

When showing the lines they said "Brooks Brooks" & for the first Power Play, they said "Go The The Box" instead of "Go to the box" it's kind of annoying to see all these spell errors lol

Raybin said...

@kimberly

The FSN graphics crew just isn't in game shape yet.

Much like the power play. Give them time to gel and they'll be all business.

gjhead said...

this sucks! i';m in squirrel hill and FSN Pittsburgh is NOT showing up in my HD channels at all. I can get the shitty basic feed on 29, but 226 is MOJOTV and gived me a "Not Authorised to See" and 774 is NHL Direct ticket coming soon screen.

Docciavelli said...

I'm not getting HD or even shitty basic feed. It's Justin.tv for me. But it's Game 1. WOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Observation: Lots of TK in this game so far. Is he subbing for Sykora?

oddjobber said...

test

nikki said...

yep, tk is taking syko's spot with geno im pretty sure

oddjobber said...

Milbury sucks it

Kierstan said...

TK is in Syko's spot, yes.

Paul said...

http://www.justin.tv/rangers05fan

watch it here.

Stoosh said...

Thoughts so far, dudes...

1. MIIISSSTTTERRRR KENNEDY!

2. KENNNEDDYYYYY!

3. Now that that's out of the way, I like Letang on the left PP point as long as they're going to try to let him shoot it or run the Whitney Play. It looks like they're still trying to run everything through that right point (Malkin) as if Gonch were still there. That's cool, but it's taking Letang an extra second to get that point-to-point pass there because he's right-handed.

4. Remember how Steigy was notorious for confusing Ruutu and Crosby during the broadcasts (because of the jersey numbers)? Anyone else think it's going to be worse this year with Satan and Crosby (81 vs 87) on the same line?

MALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLKIN!

[shorty]

Help Me Rhonda said...

Wooooooooooo

Docciavelli said...

WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

GINO Shorty!

Stoosh said...

I've never heard a building so quiet after a Pens goal.

Tony Little said...

woooooooo!

Kierstan said...

WOOOOOOO GENO for the shorthanded goal! Thank goodness.

Chris said...

GENO!

Matthew Baker said...

love the sit down shot geno. did the feed just stop?

hockeyfan0012 said...

GINO!!!!!!

wildthing202 said...

Nice goal by Malkin.

oddjobber said...

Malkin 51 goals in 39 games

Rick M. said...

Malkin scores.

CBC Announcers' Silence = STUNNED

Docciavelli said...

sick move.

2-1.

Let him PK as well.

oddjobber said...

Why do I have to sign in everytime I post something?

Help Me Rhonda said...

Cookies maybe, Oddjobber?

Anthony said...

MALKIN MUST CRUSH YOU.

Docciavelli said...

TK is tenacious on loose pucks. I really like him with Malkin/Staal. You know, he's not the sniper Sykora is, but he gathers the biscuit and gives it to the beasts nicely.

oddjobber said...

The Stahl line is looking really good today, they seem to be getting alot of chances.

I hope we kick the shit out of the Red Wings in November..

kamechiha said...

one more fucking frankie valli commercial and I am gonna kill someone

Dammit. Pkcable feed just went. Rangers05 doesn't seem to work now.

debrisslide said...

I can't get any justin.tv feeds to work, or WXDX. Fuck.

Kat said...

Does anyone know how to get sopcast to work on Firefox? Every time I try to click the link it says it doesn't know how to open the link.

oddjobber said...

son of a bitch

our powerplay looks like garbage

thomes08 said...

ugh damnit!

our PP is simply ugly

I have faith, of course, but i'm not impressed with Satan right now

GO PENS!

nikki said...

i like getting skyo back on the PP will help at least.
the man is a sniper

debrisslide said...

I pretty much hate my life right now. Hahahaha.

oddjobber said...

It looks like Crosby is trying to get that cycle thing going in the corner with Satan and Fedex but they arent speaking his language..

Shit, Eaton penalty.

Kierstan said...

PP looks ugly, and taking stupid penalties. Definitely looking like a work in progress.

Docciavelli said...

@ debrisslide

Yeah, Justin.tv isn't broadcasting and neither of the SopCast links are working either.

Guess we're just F'd.

debrisslide said...

The Senators really have no business scoring 2 goals in a row. We must look really shitty.

christina said...

i don't know if it's the ice or what...but just about everything the pens try just looks...well, off...

Kat said...

go here for those who Justin crapped out on.

http://www.selfcast.com/Rags2Riches

Kierstan said...

Pens aren't looking great, unfortunately. Flashes of goodness, and TK and Geno have been excellent, but it's still not all together yet.

Rage said...

milbury blows goats...CBC already wit the hossa/satan comparison

akus said...

The FSN graphics crew just isn't in game shape yet.

Much like the power play. Give them time to gel and they'll be all business.


raybin,Amen!

Rage said...

I think this is a secret bettman/nhl /sweden conspiracy because of alfredsson, and to get all the cryin ass philthy fans off his(bettman's) bo-zak!!!!

actually credit to akus...
CBC color commentators=asshats

oddjobber said...

SAME commercials OVER and OVER again on NHL Network... Props to the Penguins guy who put up hockey glass around his TV, thats a good one. Should have a Talbot jersey or something though, that would have made it better..

Rage said...

SCUDSSSS

debrisslide said...

The Scuderi goal guarantee from last season just paid off.

Hand of Godard said...

Who needs Whitney when you have Scuderi?

Pensgirl said...

Scuderi with The Whitney Play!

Rage said...

1st goal in 95 games?

oddjobber said...

ITS A SCUDS MISSLE!


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=78anLlOvLlk&feature=related

oddjobber said...

LeGame is going to win this in a shootout

Flyer Hater said...

Nice call doughnut boy.

Hand of Godard said...

Talbot is clutch... this isn't going into a shootout.

Flyer Hater said...

Just get a point.

Anthony said...

Finish off this PK, grab some momentum and get a late goal to seal the deal.

Staal is scoring the GWG. Mark it down.

debrisslide said...

Talbot's minutes in this game have been insane. I love that man.

Flyer Hater said...

Someone needs to piledrive Chris Neil.

oddjobber said...

Shootout win, LeGame. Mark it.

oddjobber said...

Im surprised they havent played Ace of Bass at faceoffs yet..

Kierstan said...

TK IS MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

hockeyfan0012 said...

TK!!!!!!!!!!!!!

KENNNNNNEDDDDYYYYYYYYYY!

TK BURIED IT!!!!!!

oddjobber said...

KENNEDY!!!

51 goals in 39 games!

Kierstan said...

TK has been playing like a MADMAN...WOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kierstan said...

TK bookends the game...appropriate, considering he was the best thing the Pens had on the ice tonight, IMO.

thomes08 said...

kennedy for hart! GO PENS
