Pensblog Game Night

We figured this would be a good thing to post on non penguin game nights.
It also helps to centralized comments about the games in case something happens, and we need to go searching for a you tube or something.

A few games to watch tonight.

The biggest, and currently on Versus.

Leafs vs HossaTown





NHL center ice as a free preview going on as well all week.

Don't forget about [NHL.com] either, they have some sick ass things going on.


Go Pens

poop! First

Rick M. said...

I don't like the situation Hossa has put me in.

I'm cheering for the Leafs to win and there is something seriously wrong with that.

sarah palin looks like the stripper teacher in varsity blues

Steve In Denver said...

Sarah Palin should marry Joffrey Lupul so that we could officially call her Palindrome.

I have my Hossa voodoo doll out and I am ready to tear it's ACL and MCL.

Tony Little said...

WHY PENSBLOG! WHYYYYYY MUST YOU KEEP RICK ROLLING US! booooo knuckleheads!

akus said...

I really need to use the F5 feature more often.









Goalllllllllllllllllll!!! Yesss!


Slide on it Osgood!

debrisslide said...

2-0 Toronto. This is fucking great watching them lose.

Rick M. said...

GO LEAFS GO!

Argh.... I feel so dirty.

The Goon Blogger said...

I'm not so much cheering for the Leafs as I am cheering against the Red Wings. Think of it that way my fellow C-Bloggers.

Osgood is a joke.

Rick M. said...

Holmstrom is a bitch.

Watch the crowd wake up and cheer now that the Stanley Cup Champions are beating the minor league Leafs.

TheNWChica said...

I'm going to root for the Leafs because Luke Schenn used to play and still could play in the Dub.

TheNWChica said...

Oh, and the Wings suck!

Nulpher said...

Until like 3 seconds ago, the leafs were up 2-0.

Osgood is just vomiting though. I think Conkblock is going to be starter quite soon...

Rick M. said...

I really, really hate the Wings.

Fuck you Hossa.

debrisslide said...

Hossa has tried to set up fancy shots tonight but keeps losing his edge. Gotta love it.

Jawsh said...

Pensblog is never gonna give you up
Never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry
Never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you

Rick M. said...

Every time the Red Wings score this season and Hossa isn't involved I will cheer.

Every game they lose I will celebrate.

I would really love to meet them in the finals again and win this time however.

Anna. said...

Go Leafs...
Seriously.

Rick M. said...

I feel like a vindictive, whiny, grudge-holding little bitch every time I find myself celebrating a Wings failure, but I can't help it.
I love watching them lose.

TheNWChica said...

I think I know the answer, but since I just got home a little bit ago...have the Versucks nobs been on their knees for the Wings all evening?

Rage said...

my rickvoter is up to 2366


wooooooooooooooooooooo

Rage said...

scabies>red wings


seriously

Franzen and Holmstrom need to be ended soon

Rick M. said...

I like one of the proposed new Hockey Night In Canada themes.

TheNWChica said...

Only given up ONE GOAL! Jesus... you'd think Vesa was a rookie and the Wings scored an avg. of 6 goals a game.

Rage said...

i think it should be "cheap and cheerful" by the kills from NHL09 because that frikkin song is STUCK IN MY HEAD

akus said...

With tongues hanging out chicka!!

debrisslide said...

The first thing they talked about on the intermission report was the way that the Leafs were working hard to win, and it's true. Amusingly, however, the Red Wings are working almost as hard to lose.

TheNWChica said...

Damn I can't wait for 7:30 and some good hockey comes on. *sighs*

Mike, (Avs Fan) said...

Wow, look at all the empty seats in Detroit. I mean, I know the economy is a joke right now, but come on, this is their home opener and Cup banner raising ceremony, they're the defending champs! I bet Mellon Arena will be full on Pens' opening night.

In any case, go Leafs I guess... (bleh, can't believe I said that).

The Big K said...

Is there a reason that I was directed to some gay youtube video when I tried to get here?

Oh, fuck Hossa.

Anna. said...

Is it just me..
Or is the NHL all about the Wings lately?

I feel like all I hear about it the Wings anymore.

Nulpher said...

I see tpb used a redirect script.

xuscbausp said...

me=rick rolled

and stunned

Rage said...

you weren't the first rickroll.....eeeeeevil wings...every media shill on earth is busy slobbing red wing pole this year.

TheNWChica said...

WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Steve In Denver said...

Yeah, how about all those empty seats down low in Hockeytown. The camera panned behind Toskala and directly behind the net there were easily 15 empty seats in the 4 rows you could see, and in the corner there were like 2 entire rows empty. I guess they're all home saving up their energy for the Lions run to the Superbowl.

xuscbausp said...

wings=stunned

The Big K said...

KULEMIN!

3-1 Wings! Suck a fat one Hossa!

I can't believe I'm cheering for the Leafs, but Hossa did that to me.

debrisslide said...

WOOOOOOO. Go Leafs hahaha. I can't believe I'm rooting for them. But that was a sweet giveaway, Dan Cleary!

Anna. said...

GOAL LEAFS!!

Hell yes.

The Big K said...

Oh, and nice 12,000 people in attendance Detroit! Way to support your team.

Rage said...

osgood=DUH

Nulpher said...

Osgood is vomiting so much he's starting to dry heave.

Anna. said...

Hossa has to feel like shit right now.

The Big K said...

Blowssa gets a point...

xuscbausp said...

effing hossa gets a point.
megadouche

TheNWChica said...

Fucking Homer! Someone needs to take that ugly chipmunk out!

debrisslide said...

Toskala has been a REALLY good goalie for the Leafs tonight. And to think that only about two weeks ago I wanted him to eat a dick.

FUCK. 3-2. Keep the lead, Toronto.

Anna. said...

Until now.

Nulpher said...

Well... I wonder if a high ankle sprain could happen to Holmstrom... hmm...

debrisslide said...

If Toskala hadn't been solid it would be like 5-3 Detroit. They've had some quality chances.

TheNWChica said...

How about a elbow to the back of the head?

Anna. said...

Please.
Please.
Please.
PLEASE.
Stay in the lead Toronto.

Rage said...

holmstrom needs to be pissing blood tomorrow

TheNWChica said...

Here we go Leafies, here we go! *clap clap*

The Big K said...

Toskala and Lidstrom BOTH on my fantasy team right now. I need lots of shots from Lids, and no goals.

Rage said...

did i see draper/chelios helping with the banner?

Nulpher said...

No, Chelios and Draper were unloading the Depends truck shipment to their locker room.

TheNWChica said...

Did Cheli and Drapes use that same lame ass shopping cart they used to move the Cup at the Igloo?

The Big K said...

I've got a bad feeling the Wings score here.

TheNWChica said...

Bite your tongue little man!

Dr. Turkleton said...

some peeps have some serious separation anxiety issues. [with Hossa]

I'm sure there is good clinical help available.


[Whatev]

Nulpher said...

Osgood pulled out.

debrisslide said...

This is a fucking nail-biter, hahahaha.

The Big K said...

Come on Leafs!

The Big K said...

Yes!

xuscbausp said...

teacher says every time detroit loses
an angel gets his wings

debrisslide said...

Listen, EVERY OTHER TEAM IN THE NHL, if the Toronto Maple Leafs can beat the reigning Stanley Cup Champions plus Marian Hossa, SO CAN YOU.

TheNWChica said...

Whoo hoo!

Okay y'all...I'm gonna go watch the Phils until the Canucks come on the Ceeb.

[Bourdon]

Nulpher said...

Father time just screwed the Chicken Wings.


Congrats Leafs!

Mike, (Avs Fan) said...

Wooooooooooo! Leafs win, suck it Hossa, you traitor!

akus said...

Gotta love that.

Hossa or no Hossa, it was the Wings.....

0-1..

Thank You Toronto.

Rage said...

I think that someone forgot to tell everybody on the laffs except jason blake that they suck this season

luvnmypens said...

Anyone else see this in the related article to the Hossa/Conk story?

http://www.detnews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20081009/SPORTS0103/810090373/1361

Hossa's heard criticism throughout his NHL career, mostly about not producing enough during the playoffs.

The latest attacks came when he turned down multi-year, free-agent offers from the Oilers and Penguins -- reportedly for as much as $80 million -- to sign a one-year, $7.45 million deal with the Red Wings in his pursuit to win a Stanley Cup.

Pittsburgh fans were the most irate. Hossa helped the Penguins reach the Finals, and then left for the enemy.

A video on YouTube, titled "Fourth of July Salute from Pittsburgh," shows the burning of a Penguins shirt with Hossa's name and number on the back.

"That's great," Hossa said, laughing. "You're not going to make everybody happy. Some people are going to laugh about the video, which is great, you know. I hope it had lots of hits."

Gabriel P. said...

"Listen, EVERY OTHER TEAM IN THE NHL"

(except last year's Penquins)

Steve In Denver said...

Dear Wings,
Way to disappoint the 12,063 in attendance, douchebags.

Rick M. said...

That was beautiful.

Screw you Hossa.

I think I may not hate this year's edition of the Leafs. No Tucker, McCabe or Sundin? Young kids working hard? Beating the Wings?

Good news.

Beautiful.

xuscbausp said...

my old man grew up a leafs fan (across the lake from toronto)so i dont hate em.

KaylaJ said...

now that i've made my way over to the new post (or is it anymore?!) i hope toskala puts on a performance like that whenever he plays the wings or flys or anyone else i don't like this season!

The Goon Blogger said...

Pine-Richland beats N.A. in the final minute.

Love seeing my alma mater win, especially when it's over NA

HOOO!

Rage said...

okay i can't take any more of the def chelios errrr....leppard "music"

KaylaJ said...

joe elliott has better hair than i do :(

Rage said...

but i just noticed that the singer gets makeup tips from that weird kid...phillyfreak?

whatev

PittHockey said...

hossa = joke

first time I've cheered for the laffs in a long time too.

oddjobber said...

Anyone else think Def Leopard has lost it's edge?

oddjobber said...

Detroit City C'mon!

Lets Get, Lets Get Mugged

Dr. Turkleton said...

3-1 Wings! Suck a fat one Hossa!

I can't believe I'm cheering for the Leafs, but Hossa did that to me.


effing hossa gets a point.
megadouche


Wooooooooooo! Leafs win, suck it Hossa, you traitor!

Screw you Hossa.

You all realize that if Hossa did sign that long-term deal with the Pens:

•King Shero and the Pens become Flyers-East as 3 players would take up 36% of the cap space this year...and when Geno's new contract kicked in next year: ~44% for the big 3
•#44 wouldn't be here
•#29 probably goes the arbitration route
•#11 signing this year/next year to a long-term contract probably doesn't happen


What a mistake.

Rage said...

def leppard has NEVER had an edge

Susan Burghart said...

Thank you, Maple Leafs, for peeing on Detroit's party.

The let the SI cover jinx begin.

Rage said...

dr turk- dude, relax and let people get their hate on. You're workin harder tryin to reason people into thinking about it rationally than the situation warrants. I just hate the Wings, personally. I wouldn't care if Jesus was their goalie and Buddha was their center, I'd hate them just as badly.

Rage said...

@dr turk- btw I totally agree with you but I still hate hossa too, but not just because he basically said the Pens were too inferior to win this season.

oddjobber said...

WHAT THE FCK DEF LPRD?

Stanley Cup upside down??

Jesus.

GET IT OUT OF DETROIT BEFORE IT GETS HERPES!

Stoosh said...

It's a good thing the NHL decided to actually play the whole NHL 08-09 season as opposed to just handing the Wings the Cup.

Look, they might go 81-1 for all I know, but they were outskated all night long by a Toronto team that the Wings should've pounded. Long way to go and I'm sure Detroit will be just fine. It's still funny, though.

debrisslide said...

gabriel, last year's Penguins are not currently in the NHL. You seem to have made a crucial error in interpreting verb tense. :)

Stoosh said...

Check that...

Joe Elliott looks like he's getting his makeup tips from Sean Avery and his plastic surgery advice from Axl Rose.

"Is Anybody Out There?" - given the crowd tonight in Detroit, apparently not.

Heck Kleck said...

anyone else in complete disgust over lead singer of def leppard puts the cup upside down?


i'm upset.

ugh.

KaylaJ said...

lol stoosh, i loved when elliot was like "a little bit louder now!" and nothing happened.

captjameson said...

milt stegall thinks they make pucks out of black people

akus said...

Sharks Pregame> Old Leppard Spots.

Heck Kleck said...

1 minute in...looks like tim thomas may have a long night ahead of him.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Dr. Turk, how long have you been preaching that? Shortly after he left us, right? It's a shame that no one obviously wants to listen to reason. *hands Dr. Turk an appletini* I agree with you. Some C-bloggers are as bitter as the Janitor.

I actually was rooting for the Leafs considering I pity them. Glad to see Dominic Moore got the first star, he wasn't that great but I liked him when he played for us. How was Schenn? I didn't get to see the game, and I was excited about his NHL debut.

Chica, I hope the Canucks have a good night. Kesler and Luongo are my favorite Canucks, so I hope they do well as well as the Swedish twins.

Stoosh said...

@ Kaylaj -

That whole thing was actually borderline traumatic for me. That was another one of the bands that I grew up with (the Hysteria and Adrenalize albums in particular). I saw them in concert in 1993 and they were awesome. But there are few things worse than seeing a band you grew up with and realizing that they haven't aged well at all.

dying alive said...

(except last year's Penquins)

What's a Penquin?


This just in: Detroit will not go 82-0 this season. ESPN, Detroit fans stunned.

dying alive said...

"Is Anybody Out There?" - given the crowd tonight in Detroit, apparently not.

Classic. And versatile, since it applies to any Wings home game.

Stoosh said...

@ IHK -

Luke Schenn looked pretty good for a kid playing in his first NHL game. And it doesn't get much tougher than being thrown into your first game against the defending Cup champs that just added another elite winger.

I picked on him a little earlier this summer because during the draft, they made him sound like second coming of Bobby Orr. He actually reminds me a lot of Brooks Orpik.

Stoosh said...

@ NWChica -

Speaking of the Canucks, what can we do to get them to bring back the old colors?

This needs to happen.

Dr. Turkleton said...

rage...

I hear ya. You're right...why waste time with rational thinking when hate & unnecessary bashing is the kewl thing to do. [mild dose of sarcasma]

It's like when I'm talking with my 4 year old nephew using 'big words' and rationale trying to explain something.

[Gunter Glieben Glauchen Globen]

jefe p said...

awesome that the free preview of center ice that im paying for wouldnt cover the leafs wings game. oh well. im going to scope out ducks sharks. go 'Yotes!

Dr. Turkleton said...

ihk...

can I please have 10? Lite on the Apple - heavy on the 'Tini????

homesprout said...

Wow...raising a banner and losing the home opener to a lottery team. Talk about shitting the bed....

Good seats still available at the Joke!

Dr. Turkleton said...

I say cblog intermissionblog outside C23 after the 1st and/or 2nd periods on Saturday....

....DA's buyin'.

fleuryous said...

I'm so over the Hossa thing.

Orpik, Malkin, Fleury, Staal>>>>>>Hossa.

Shero is smart. We all know this.


Granted, our forward situation isn't as strong as it could be,

we didn't lose to the Leafs (knock on wood).

WOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

SATURDAAAAAAAAAAAAY.

fleuryous said...

PS. WHO is going on Saturday night?


If at all possible, could I get a ride home? I live in Oakland, and I would REALLY appreciate it.

Also, I would like to meet who's going!


I'm assuming Turk and Stoosh!

Rage said...

@jefe-center ice blacks out all games on versus/nhln/nbc...btw-did you see the ducks all throwing checks into each other accidentally?

@dr. turk- my hate keeps me warm

real hockey FTW

KaylaJ said...

stoosh i know what you mean. as you grow old you realize the things you loved are no longer cool or were never cool at all. amazing how it never stops either. we get punished every time def leopard sings in detroit and whenever george michael is caught in a restroom.

OldTimeHockey67 said...

Wow! I cant believe I just cheered the leafs on to victory.. Its a crazy world we are living in ladies and gents! Gooooo Pens!!!

Hey how about Joe Elliot placing the cup upside down on the table! Ya think the "keeper of the cup" would have briefed him on that!

Dr. Turkleton said...

fleuryous...

you'll be in C19 right?...

bring an umbrella...from E18, my 'throw beer on the sections below' reflex, kicks in about the 10 minute mark of the 1st.

I'm not sure if stoosh is going to be at North American-Home Game 1.0.

plus, I haven't seen/read much about any tailgateblog...I know some peeps mentioned watching/partying outside.

rage said...

my hate keeps me warm

I can appreciate that...but be careful: it could lead to an ulcer or three later on in life! :)

**UPDATE**

The Oren & Lennie Show just offered contracts to Gunter, Glieben & Glauchen...they're still up in the air about Globen.

MizzPenz said...

Souperbowl Saturday Night

Wooooooooooooooooo!!!!

BlacknGold66 said...

I'll be there Saturday and will be down for a lil meet 'n greet.

E28 but willing to "venture" as Turk would say.

Rage said...

@dr turk-you missed my Red Dawn reference...just remember, though, human race ends on 21 December, 2012 FTW!!!


(I keeeeed)

"The Oren & Lennie Show just offered contracts to Gunter, Glieben & Glauchen...they're still up in the air about Globen."

The money must be coming in from SAW 4 already!


Nite c-blog! Tip your waitress!

jefe p said...

@rage -i know, im a center ice vet, but still have to bitch about them.

and it turns out i dont care about watching anyone else other than the pens. so i missed any random self-checking.
