Gameday [2]: Pens vs Sens

[09-globen1.jpg]

[2:30-ish]

[FSN] has the local feed, and [Versus] has it nationally.
If your in The Great White North it's on the [CBC].
And as always [WXDX] has it on the dials.


[Picture+2.png]


:: After looking shakier than a Jello mold in an earthquake, the Sens are sitting Gerber today.
Alex Auld gets the call. Auld's on his 4th team in as many years.
The guy gets around like patio furniture in a tornado.

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




:: Don't expect Sykora to play in the second half of this back-to-back Swedish debacle,
tweaked groin has him out of the line up. Lines should be similair to yesterday.

Crosby with Tanko and Satan. Malkin with Staalsy and TK.



In case you were wondering, this afternoon's game is considered a Pens home game.
So they'll get the last change.
And on top of having to watch our team open in the land of Ace of Base, ABBA, and Ikea,
we'll get one less game in the Mellon this year.
Balls.

Do it

TB loses, 2 to 1

rickyaustin said...

Go Pens!

PittHockey said...

Happy birthday Mario.

TheNWChica said...

Anyone seen Chris E yet?

debrisslide said...

The rangers05fan channel on justin.tv is streaming Versucks, for any of you in my situation. . .

oddjobber said...

Howard the Duck, nice

TheNWChica said...

I want to stay here for the gameday c-blog; but depending on who the commentators are, I might have to abandon ship and go watch the Ceeb in the living room.

I need to get another TV and cable box in this room.

oddjobber said...

What the f***, Versus HD just turned into Versus Golf Channel.

New Sid commercial is on right now

BlacknGold66 said...

Jesus H. Tittyfucking Christ, Engblom cut his hair!

Go Pens!!!

fleuryous said...

I'm going to say not only TK will bury one, but I'm going to say Dolla Bill.


LET'S GO, BT.


Win for Lemieux, Pens.

xuscbausp said...

versus HD will be golf channel for today's game. thanks, versucks

Kat said...

Man, I am soon going to be reminded why I hate Versus so much.

TheNWChica said...

Holy shit...the Hawks defense is making Eli look like Joe Fucking Montana. *facepalm*

debrisslide said...

Despite the fact that Versus can't call a game if their life depends on it, I have to admit that their NHL on Versus theme is kind of epic.

debrisslide said...

Yeah, they're talking about Hossa. . .they haven't gotten to the part about how we don't give a shit, though.

Kat said...

At what point in the season are they going to let this Hossa shit go? When we finally put Detroit on their ass?

fleuryous said...

OH God, the same singers.

The game will begin in approximately 2 hours.

oddjobber said...

Avatar test. test 1-2-3.

nikki said...

drop the puck already
fuck. i don't wanna listen to alfredsson

Kristen said...

anyone else notice the girl who first sang Oh Canada was supposed to start with the Star Spangled Banner? hahaha


it's going to be a great game.


GO PENS.

Kat said...

@chica, you are right, this D is soff. My Giants are having a damn field day. And I'm totally loving it.

Rick M. said...

CBC listed all the guys the Pens have lost since the trade deadline last year and says that they're a shell of the team that made the Cup Finals last year.

Apparently Christensen, Armstrong and Recchi were vital to our success last season.

debrisslide said...

Versus also doesn't know who Ruutu is. Yeah. This is going to be a great game.

EnsErmac said...

The Canadian/Swedish anthem singer is sexy. The American one was old and botched the words.

nikki said...

rick i noticed that too
i especially like how the included whitter and gonch on that list too
clever

Anrui said...

Anyone have a SOPcast of some good broadcasters on FSN?

TheNWChica said...

Whatever Braydon....douche!

mallori said...

Does anyone think that scoreboard thing FSN is using is the new one for the season? I hope not...

Chris said...

yea i think i will stick to the Swedish stream over versus lol.

PittHockey said...

cotton eye joe.

this is a home game.

kstewy16 said...

cotton eyed joe!!!
you can tell its a pens "home" game

J.S. said...

I was gonna job about the singer saying "the bombs burning in air", til I realized she's singing 3 different anthems and it may not be her first language.

14k Swedes (estimation) all singing the national anthem = awesome. Wish we'd see that here once in awhile.

EnsErmac said...

I like the new scoreboard graphic. Uses a lot less screen space.

mallori said...

That's about the only thing I like about it. I don't know, just not my style.

TheNWChica said...

I think that if the boys can swarm Auld, they can rattle him and score on him. There's a reason he's always been a backup.

J.S. said...

FFS, can the score box on FSN be any bigger?

if it were any bigger, we could call it acid queen

TheNWChica said...

Oh, and I forgot to mention yesterday that I love the new Dickie on the top of the post. It might not be spankin' new, but it's new to me and I like it a lot.

KaylaJ said...

debris, glad someone else caught that one too. like you can't figure out ruu looks like a cross eyed monkey

tanya said...

rangers vs lightning was broadcasted but instead of senators vs pens they are broadcasting baseball or something like that... nasn sucks

fleuryous said...

SHERRY BABY.

Kat said...

Enough about Auld, call the game...

fleuryous said...

JESS, your boy is a traitor.

bbbbrian said...

Man as much as I loved Rutuu last year holy shit is he irritating on another team. Nice move going to the bench in hopes of avoiding the penalty. That move is 0 for a million

Jawsh said...

et tu rutuu?

thomes08 said...

God must fight ruutu now

TheNWChica said...

Having both Ruu and Cookie on my team at the same time before, I can vouch for Cookie >>>>> Ruu.

Ruu is good, but only at one or two things; Cookie can be an annoying dick as well as actually score some goals and is more versatile.

debrisslide said...

They are refusing to call the game and Ruutu is allowed to sit on Crosby. Fail.

debrisslide said...

"You love Def Leppard, don't you?"
"Yeah I'm all over them!"

TheNWChica said...

Neil Smith is such a tool. But he's better Milbury and damn does it pain me to say that.

oddjobber said...

Malkin is looking great today.. Wow

fleuryous said...

I hope Staal keeps up this defensive work.


He was a sick defensive forward in the playoffs.


GROOOOOOONK.

debrisslide said...

Malkin's stickhandling has been phenomenal.

oddjobber said...

Powerplay pens.

Damn that chick on versus is hot

fleuryous said...

And Malkin does look all too pretty out there.


Ah, the goosebump commercial.

TheNWChica said...

No one cares where Sundin ends up. Really...no one!

Kat said...

So our PP looks, um, a little better? Kinda.

fleuryous said...

Power play goal?

What is that?

Jawsh said...

I really like go-go, he's gonna do big things.

TheNWChica said...

66 looks good... Bon anniversaire!

Rage said...

what's with all the auld nad-gargling?

debrisslide said...

They're talking about Maxie. For once the Versus announcers are kissing the Penguins' ass. . .haha.

fleuryous said...

hahaha. ORPIK GOT HIM BAAAAAAACK.

Jawsh said...

I think the announcers are about to propose to mad max.

Kat said...

Ruu gets his own dose of Free Candy. Nice

debrisslide said...

Orpik gave Ruu some fucking free candy.

Rage said...

ooooooooo...little free candy for the shark

TheNWChica said...

Hey Ruu! There's your Free Candy bitch!

debrisslide said...

jawsh, I'm about to propose to Max

oddjobber said...

Suck on that free candy Alfie!

fleuryous said...

The period ended the way I wanted...


amazing Fleury save, Orpik fight. YES.

debrisslide said...

I lost my feed to Versus with about a minute left in the period. I guess I have the whole intermission to find a new one. . .

Flyer Hater said...

Alfie's going to get Ace Baileyed if he keeps turning into the boards when someone is coming to hit him.

Joke.

TheNWChica said...

If you're using rangerfan's feed debris, it's back. I had to open a new browser though.

Eric P. said...

Please fight God or Bis

oddjobber said...

We should be up like 3-0, bad bounces so far.

Malkin's stick handling is amazing today.

Ruutu is going to get his ass handed to him in the 2nd.

TheNWChica said...

Engblom w/no mullet is freaking me out. I wonder if he and Melrose had a bet...if Barry got hired, he had to cut his hair. :)

dying alive said...

The guy gets around like patio furniture in a tornado.

Rarely do I actually LOL, but that did it.

Somebody forgot to tell the Sens that the Olympic diving competition wrapped up about a month and a half ago.

debrisslide said...

Yeah, the feed came back. . .thank goodness.

oddjobber said...

Anyone else notice how Larry Murphy always checks out the camera on the NHL Network pre/post game shows? It drives me nuts..

TheNWChica said...

I changed over to Firefox just for shits and giggles, and the quality seems to be better.

Oh, and I am embarrassed to be a Seahawks fan today. They are definitely not making the playoffs. *sighs*

debrisslide said...

Hossa'a goal celebrations = soff. He doesn't give a shit.

Kat said...

These jokes really think Hossa is going to contend for the Art Ross!? Jokes...

Zarley Zalapski Blues Explosion said...

I've been busy that past few weeks, so I'm a little bit out of the loop here, but what's the link to the Pensblog Chatblog?

Is that still going on this season?

flaproosta08 said...

what a joke alfredson is

Ruutu vs God?

Rage said...

I think the NLHN is showing a live preseason game at 5 tonite...the punchline? It's the Sabres and The Team Which Must Not Be Named.

oddjobber said...

WTF Versus commentators.. Hossa for Art Ross? Are you f-ing serious. What a joke.

oddjobber said...

"There are children in this house Marcello"

wilsmith said...

Is everyone going to be amazing just because they play for the pens?

fleuryous said...

Dude...the next time Errey or anyone else mentions the loss of Gonchar, I'm going to projective vomit on them.


WE KNOW, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

Jesus H. Christ.

fleuryous said...

Fleury=ROBBER.

debrisslide said...

I'm out of a feed again. What the fuck.

mallori said...

Heatley had a nice premature celebration on that huge save by MAF.

Jawsh said...

yeah, my feed crapped out too. I had to switch to radio.

fleuryous said...

GOD, PLEASE.


P

debrisslide said...

I can't get WXDX to play on my computer. So I have to wait for this feed. . .the rangers05fan guy seems to actually be trying hard to get it to work.

oddjobber said...

Coming up during the 2nd intermission: A 10 minute play by play analysis of exactly how much the Penguins are going to miss Gonchar this season...

fleuryous said...

"Bag 'o Holes" Fleury, huh?


Doubters=JOKES.

TheNWChica said...

Hey Debris....the feed is back just in time for the intermission. lol

TheNWChica said...

Nope...I think it's fully back now; or so it seems.

Jawsh said...

and if u cant get the x's website to work you can try and listen to it from the pen's team site.

TheNWChica said...

Phillies over Brewers 6-2 and next up: The Dodgers.

Kat said...

God tries to take on the entire Sens team

fleuryous said...

Crosby got more bodyguards than Miley Cyrus.

fleuryous said...

GODDAMMIT.

Jawsh said...

balls

fleuryous said...

Fleury couldn't have gotten that. BLAH.

dying alive said...

Can anyone explain why Godard got the extra minor there in the first place?

Kat said...

*facepalm.* Well maybe this will wake them up a bit.

thomes08 said...

i love god, but he sure has taken some costly penalties so far

J.S. said...

Heatley's killing us.

1-0 d-bags in white.

debrisslide said...

Booooo.

nikki said...

put it in the fucking net already. bahh

J.S. said...

the same Hossa who scored 60 something pts last season?

In the words of Lil Jon.....yeaaaaaaaah, OK!

Kat said...

Dude, Malkin's a freaking BEAST.

PensFanTrappedInOhio said...

Seriously, how many ways can they pronounce Geno's name?

debrisslide said...

Finally I have Mike Lange. <3

tanya said...

what is ruutu doing/ what did he do?

fleuryous said...

Elbowed Sid in the head.


Orpik better slam him again.



Goddammit, the power plays are killing me.

debrisslide said...

Time to get something going, boys.

thomes08 said...

pretty soon i'm gonna start like those annoying parents as your youth hockey/soccer games when we're on the PP and they think that yelling out to you to score will actually make it happen.

"SCOOORRE! ......SCOOOOOOOOOOOORE! .......SCOOOOOOOOOOORE!!!!!!"


cmon pens lets get this going

tanya said...

thanks. listening hockey game on radio sucks

Anthony said...

I don't even know what to say about this lack of a PP.

wilsmith said...

Well now we know why the Islanders sucked last year.

prove me wrong, please.

PensFanTrappedInOhio said...

oh here we go... the whole second intermission will be all about how good ottawa is all of the sudden.

Anthony said...

And Godard is looking like a giant fucking soft-headed idiot.

Jawsh said...

Are you serious?

If God vs. Ruutu happens I'll start posting Flyer tributes

Jawsh said...

Blogger Anthony said...

I don't even know what to say about this lack of a PP.





That's what SHE said!!!!



*Crickets*

Anthony said...

Fedotenko is looking totally out of place on the first line. Satan isn't doing much better but at least he's shooting and creating some chances here and there. =/

debrisslide said...

I just caught a replay of Heatley's goal. . .joke.

The Goon Blogger said...

I gotta say, I'm totally behind what Godard is doing. It sucks they scored on the PP, but Jason Smith is taking liberties with Croz and you have to do something about it.

Like they said on the TV feed, Laraque wouldn't have done that. Laraque asks if they want to fight, if they don't that's the end of it. I like that Godard gets a little nasty. Beyond that, that extra 2 is bullshit. There were 4 Sens on him, put Ruu in the box with Neil.

PensFanTrappedInOhio said...

completely agree.

Eric P. said...

@anthony

Godard is doing his job. He's paid to protect Crosby and that's what he's trying to do.

Laraque didn't protect any of our teammates ONCE in his tenure with the Pens, so shut up about it.

thomes08 said...

i'm with you goon

The Goon Blogger said...

Do we see a Malkin-Crosby-TK line in the 3rd?

The Goon Blogger said...

Anyway, I don't have a TV next to my computer. I'll be back after we finish.

Prediction: Gogo buries a PP goal.

fleuryous said...

Dude, that line would be FIERCE.

Eric P. said...

Bis will drop them next period - my prediction

fleuryous said...

Oh Jesus, here we go again...


haha

debrisslide said...

Dany Heatley with the tripping.

Let's get the PP fucking GOING.

debrisslide said...

If Auld gets a shutout we're all going to look like idiots.

fleuryous said...

Kennedy HAS to bury one...look at him.

thomes08 said...

fuck you VS.... saying kennedy "SCORES!"

debrisslide said...

fleuryous, I believe you. . .I can't see him. :(

Jawsh said...

"Auld is a tremendous man. Very erect when he goes down on that butterfly!"

Thanks vs

dying alive said...

Oh no, a power play.

debrisslide said...

Jesus Christ, this much powerplay we should be leading by two.

PensFanTrappedInOhio said...

Alright boys, here we go... 1 for 13 through 5+ periods.

thomes08 said...

nice rule change so there will never be a tv timeout after an icing. that didn't make any sense before.


ok crosby is gonna get something goin on this PP

LETS GO PENS!

PensFanTrappedInOhio said...

They have no jump... it's all frustration city. Someone needs to step up.

debrisslide said...

It would be really classy for us to put one in right about now.

debrisslide said...

We look better shorthanded than we do on PP.

kovy27 said...

all i want is to see Ruutu get the beat down from Godard. but hey, ill settle for a Pens goal too.

PensFanTrappedInOhio said...

HAHAHAHA the dudes from Def Leppard look like they've been dead for a month.

PensFanTrappedInOhio said...

I just threw up a little.

dying alive said...

Man, I loathe that toothless fuck Heatley.

debrisslide said...

WHAT THE FUCK.

Jawsh said...

vomit

debrisslide said...

Don't let that shithead Auld get a shutout, that's all I have to say.

FreeCandyVan44 said...

vomit.

J.S. said...

HAHAHAHA the dudes from Def Leppard look like they've been dead for a month.

their career has been dead for about two decades

PensFanTrappedInOhio said...

should have gotten Donnie Iris to perform...

FreeCandyVan44 said...

what the hell happened from yesterday?.....holy fuck!!!! they are playing the clarks!!!!

J.S. said...

LOL, the Clarks? It must be a Pens home game.

EnsErmac said...

The Clarks, big in Sweden.

FreeCandyVan44 said...

3 0....unreal

PensFanTrappedInOhio said...

wow.

debrisslide said...

FAIL.

J.S. said...

ohhhhhhhhh fuuuuuuuuudge

3-0 d-bags in white

fleuryous said...

I'm actually going to vomit.


All over Heatley.

tanya said...

what just happened??

nikki said...

poor fleury
no help at all

fleuryous said...

I know, Man.

Fleury's playing so well, but where's the D?

J.S. said...

is that Malkin dropping the f-bombs? If so, I guess his english has improved.

Anna. said...

I = shocked.

We have some work to do.

debrisslide said...

Maybe a PP goal to ruin Auld's shutout? Wait, do we even have a powerplay unit anymore?

Help Me Rhonda said...

Hahaha Gogo!!

fleuryous said...

GOALigoski

nikki said...

at least we spoiled the shutout :D
haha i thought gogo played well actually

FreeCandyVan44 said...

at least auld doesnt get the shut out.

power play units need some help.

vomit.

nikki said...

haha AND we finally scored on the pp
finally

dying alive said...

Ha ha, if we have to lose, we might as well screw Auld. That pissed off Sen in front of the net made it all worthwhile.

Hooray for Goligoski's first goal!

debrisslide said...

GOLIGOSKI! WHOAAAAA.

Anna. said...

Gogo saves us from complete humiliation (:

The Goon Blogger said...

Well, I called it.

Doesn't change anything though.

I wonder how much the smaller rink caused the PP to suffer.

We weren't going to go 82-0-0 anyway. So no big deal. We're not going to miss the playoffs because of this. Let's not get all doom and gloom.

Flyer Hater said...

Got the split, I'm happy. European games are mud.

KaylaJ said...

lol, goligoski scores on the pp to end it, the loss stinks, but that is funny.

oddjobber said...

Conklin and Ho$$a are on NHL Network.. Conklin's helmet looks like someone puked on it..

Flyer Hater said...

These overseas games should cease to exist. There's more excitement at a NJ Devils home game than there was in the arena tonight. It feels like an exhibition game, there's no flow, no intensity, no buzz in the arena, and I think the Winter Classic ice was better. This whole trip was a joke.

Anna. said...

If I hear one more Ho$$a/Satan comparison I might kill someone.

The Goon Blogger said...

fh telling it like it is.

Europe=Mud.

We'll take your players, but keep your rinks and fans. Jokes.

Flyer Hater said...

Mellon Arena is going to seem like the Northlands Coliseum in terms of ice coming back from this shit.

Flyer Hater said...

Let's see how long in takes for someone on LGP to make a "What's wrong with the Pens?" thread.

Eric P. said...

Fuck.

fleuryous said...

I think I've heard the mention of Gonchar and Whitney being missed on the PP approximately 430590485903850948509834509 times.


Granted, it had to be emphasized because of the...well, you know, but I'm sick of hearing it.

BLEH.

KaylaJ said...

the most applause those swedes gave was when borje salming was shown

debrisslide said...

FH knows what's up.
