GAMEDAY [12] -- ST. LOUIS BLUES

[stlouis.png]

8:30 -- FSN

First things first. Crosby says he'll be in the lineup tonight. TRIB
The injury that kept him from finishing against the Coyotes remains undisclosed, as per the new NHL policy.
Some have said hip. Some have said ribs. Who knows.
But he'll play.

Pesonen will be on the ice tonight.
Dupuis will not. He's out until at least Thursday.
Eaton's a healthy scratch, and Sydor will take his spot.

Peso will play with Malkin and Sykora. This has the chance of becoming one of our favorite lines ever. Even though Peso has never played an NHL game, maybe something magical will be in the makings.

Malkin and rest of the lineup expect to play better. PG
Lack of execution, turnovers, not playing the system.
All things the Penguins could work on.

But when it comes down to it, the Penguins know better than anyone not named the Detroit Red Wings how long the season is.
They're going to make the playoffs.
We'd love to see them balls to the walls now, but we'd rather see it then.

That being said, it's the Blues tonight. Not exactly the elite of the Western Conference.
They've been shutout in 2 of their last 3 games, and dropped 3 of the last 4.

A big link goes to our boy Russell, from [teampensblog]. He is in St. Louis tonight.

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

We went with Shooter McGavin last game. He did get us more shots.
We'll go with a guy many of you have suggested. And, well, he is all about the money shots.

Ron Jeremy it is.


Business.



Do It.

GO PENS!

Hip said...

The west coast trip has been rough on me. Haven't been able to see more than the first few awful mins every night. Looking forward to tonight!

Let's Go Pens!!

Kat said...

The United Nations Line...I like it.

Geno's getting a big goal tonight. I can feel it.

fleuryous said...

The UN line is going to be money tonight.

Dare I say...a money shot...not unlike the ones given by Ron Jeremy himself.


WOOOOOOOO
Let's go Pens.


----------------
stoosh, my brother and I love Conor Lee, because my brother was his team's kicker, and...well, we both love Pitt. haha

However, my favorite is Scott McKillop. Didn't he have like 15 or 16 tackles tonight? Essentially, don't fuck with him. haha.

Let's have a double-win, Pittsbuuuuuuuurgh.

Go Pens!!!

Pelimies has been my ringtone for a week. Premonition?

chubz said...

i've been na na na na-ing all day

staal tickles the twine tonight

Docciavelli said...

Whoops. Would help if I saw the new post before cblogging.

Predictions:

UN line good for a goal, Crosby to Satan for a PPG, and a Goligoski shot deflected by Zigomanis for the win in the third. 3-2 Pens. (I collect on that even-up $10 bet on the Pens over 2.5)

Keith Tkachuk eats three chili dogs and a plate of nachos during the 2nd intermission.

Cam Janssen goes with Godard.

Talbot bangs a receptionist at a St. Louis-area BMW dealership tomorrow morning.

Chris Mason pisses himself during a Malkin breakaway.

Kat said...

Why is it that every time I try to watch the Caps play, Jose Theodore is crapping the bed. Jesus...

debrisslide said...

docciavelli - possibly the most solid predictionblog all year.

Docciavelli said...

@debris

Forgot one:

Paul Kariya tells stories to Jordan Staal about winning the Hobey Baker Award when he was 20. Staal ignores him.

Allison said...

@docciavelli- commented to you in the last post, but you prob saw it cause neither of us realized the new post.

debrisslide said...

I hate to start the complaining, but, um, does anyone know of a feed for tonight?

chris e said...

Let's do this shit!

Who knew?

FH dominates Cblog.

DO IT

Adam said...

Umm, just throwing this out there: The United Nations line was Kamensky/Forsberg/Lemieux in Colorado when they won the Cup in '96.

Although since that clearly isn't the case anymore, maybe this is the UN Line: The Remix.

somechic said...

for real lets do it tonight!

Nick Saia (usa) said...

has anyone founds a stream?

Justin said...

Na-na-na-naa-na-na-nan-nan-naa...
Tänä iltana ei tuu pakkeja

Rintani hakkaa kuin rummunsoittaja,
mut tänä iltana olen voittaja
Tänä iltana aion toimia,
näyttää sisäisen eläimeni voimia
Ihanaa hirvet ja ihanaa leijonat,
tänä iltana juhlii voittaja

Docciavelli said...

Seems like all the streams are Leafs/Rags. As if anyone actually likes those teams anywhere.

You would think someone in Finland would stream this one...

jovi said...

is anyone having any probs w/ justin tv?

debrisslide said...

I have the X going. It's great to have, obviously, but I hate not SEEING.

meecrofilm said...

Beautiful. It's time for some hockey.

If Peso scores a big goal I'll lose my mind.

debrisslide said...

no jovi, justin.tv is working fine for me. . .unfortunately I don't want to watch the Rangers or the Islanders.

Justin, according to this Finnish to English translator, the lyrics are:

No automatic paragraph formatting, sorry. This is a bit different, and makes only slightly more sense.

debrisslide said...

So happy to be seeing the game. Thanks a lot, nick!

fleuryous said...

Semin's all over the TV screen right now.


I bet you he said that about Sid just to get on TV.


Douche.

Nick Saia (usa) said...

thats some good research and everything, but i like my verion better.

Docciavelli said...

Nick Saia with the win!

Clutch.

Docciavelli said...

PESO sighting.

Nanananaaa....

jovi said...

sad ! i can't get justin tv to work :(

i guess this is god's way of telling me to study.

;) thank godness for radio

pops said...

i think shooting is againt sid's religion or something

Docciavelli said...

Sid looks possessed. I'm sticking with my earlier prediction of Sid to Satan PPG.

Docciavelli said...

Wow. 1 for 19 on the road PP? Did not realize it has been that bad.

[LGP post #1 of the night]

But seriously, the Pens do look much better tonight.

pops said...

anyone else feel like in the last couple of games, every goalie the pens play against seems to be making saves of his life?

Allison said...

Woah... "The blues still without an official shot on goal.". It feels so good to hear the announcer say that without starting the sentence with "the penguins"

pops said...

shot #1...goal

shit

Allison said...

So naturally I say that and they take a shot and it goes in...

Docciavelli said...

fuck.

What was that about "bounces not going our way"? Uh-huh.

fleuryous said...

Shitty call refs.


CLean hit.

pops said...

wow. looked like scuderi deflected that in.

Docciavelli said...

Scuds. Own goal.

And Orpik puts them on the PP.

Is it just me, or are we due for a Staal shorty?

fleuryous said...

Glad to see the Fu Manchu still in effect...

pops said...

PP!

for fuck's sake, can they score against these chumps already!?

HERE WE GO, PENS!!!

debrisslide said...

*shrug* I still think we're playing better than they are. It's a one-goal lead, we all know how unsafe those are.

fleuryous said...

MAF! Great save.

pops said...

fleury saving our ass YET again.

fleuryous said...

SATAN SCORE BIG GOALS.

SteveThePirate said...

awesome shot satan!

pops said...

thank god....er satan.

shooting the puck, baby.

seriously, lets roll over these scrubs.

pops said...

that shit just cant happen.

SteveThePirate said...

and...i just vomited on myself

Kat said...

TK-Staal-Cooke is actually looking to be a pretty rad line.

johnnylaw said...

What kind of happy horseshit is this? Can they not keep any lead?

pops said...

im trying to remember, but was the rags game the last time the pens lead in a hockey game?

The Goon Blogger said...

Much better period of play all around. The 1st Blues goal was just awkward with it fluttering and deflecting and MAF screened. The second made me a little upset as Sykie just got beat to the net by his man. It happens though.

Pens are putting rubber to the net, I like it.

debrisslide said...

Worst two goals ever. They only have 4 shots!

Flyer Hater said...

I really wanna punch someone in the face.

fleuryous said...

I want a pair of those shoes. haha

debrisslide said...

Let's say you and me go down to Missouri, FH, and punch some play-by-play announcers?

wilsmith said...

Checking is awesome.

It's been so long since I've seen it.

The Pens need to turn all that mucking and grinding into a shot once in a while and they'll be in good shape.

Flyer Hater said...

I don't believe the douche who does the Blues play by play is the son of the guy who made this call

Stoosh said...

Thoughts so far...

1. Like Bob Errey said, Talbot on Sid's wing looks to be a really good match.

2. Dana Heinze keeps an old Phillipe deRouville goalie stick in the equipment room. That's fantastic because I'm not even sure Phillipe deRouville has any Phillipe deRouville sticks in his garage or basement. Dana = Huge.

3. I like what I'm seeing from the UN Line, and I think the UN Line is a great name for that line. Fuck Valery Kamensky.

4. Exactly who is Lauren in those NHL '09 commercials a blogger for?

5. The Pens needed to play a team like this tonight because St. Louis is making them skate to keep up with them.

6. If what Orpik did to commit that tripping call was indeed tripping, I suppose hip checks are no longer legal.

Holy fuck...

I've been flipping back and forth between Pens-Blues and Rangers-Leafs (HNIC through the NHL Network). I checked not even ten minutes ago and NY was up 2-0. Toronto scored four goals in three and a half minutes. Woooo.

Ooops...make that five goals in about six or seven minutes. Steve Valiquette might be playing himself out of the league.

fleuryous said...

In other news, Semin shooting blanks.


SHUT OUT. haha

Stoosh said...

FLEURYOUS!!!!

As I type this, Syracuse is beating Louisville 21-14 at the end of the third quarter.

Kragthorpe'd!

Allison said...

ummm... so it could be worse... we could be rooting for the ny rangers. i just walked into my kitchen , saw my dad had the game on and saw the rangers were winning 2 nothing with about 7 mins left in the third. next thing i know toronto beats them 5-2.

Allison said...

sorry stoosh, didn't see you'd already updated cblog on the sad state on the rangers :)

Stoosh said...

Every time I hear Steigy mention Mason, I think of Mason.

Not sure if Mason the goalie is a winner and if he fucked the prom queen.

wilsmith said...

Malkin should score a goal now.

Preferably a game winner, and a power play.

Also, he should get an assist on that goal, if possible.

The fate of my roto league team depends on it.

pops said...

sigh

fleuryous said...

Yikes...Syracuse? haha.



OH NO, TANGER.

Stoosh said...

Allison -

Quite alright. In fact, we can never talk enough about the Rangers undergoing an absolutely epic collapse against a team that many believed was supposed to be the frontrunner for the John Tavares Sweepstakes.

Speaking of sucking...

For as bad as Toronto was supposed to be this year, they're 5-3-3 and just four points behind the Canadiens.

The Islanders, on the other hand, are redefining "fucktastic hockey". 2-7-1 in ten games. Five points out of a possible 20.

Get used to Long Island and playing hockey in a warehouse, John Tavares.

wilsmith said...

"broke my f'in wrist" ?

Kat said...

That replay of the slash on Tanger....damn.

Stoosh said...

REALLY like Talbot on Sid's wing.

WOW...Someone needs to grab Backes and cave that fucker's face in.

Four officials on the ice and not one of them saw that, but Orpik throws a perfectly legal hip check and gets a tripping call.


GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOALLLL!

fleuryous said...

GOALigoski!

pops said...

thank you goligoski!

facebook friend him! GO!

fleuryous said...

As Goaligoski matures...I have a feeling he's going to be a lights-out defenseman.


Goddamn, I love him. haha

debrisslide said...

GOLIFUCKINGGOSKI!!!!!!

fleuryous said...

OOOOOOOOH.

Keep your stick down.

ERECTION CITY. haha

pops said...

thank god, cause i was about to throw my laptop across the room.

Flyer Hater said...

Unfuckingbelieveable.

Stoosh said...

Shut up, Steigy.

If the Pens player's stick hit the puck, it would've come out towards center ice and not diagonally across the crease. The defenseman's stick was facing so that it would've batted the puck directly back up the ice and not to the other side of the crease.

wilsmith said...

anyway, that was a slick play by goli

fleuryous said...

Oooh, stoosh is pissed. haha


Alas, it was a high stick.
RULEZ IZ RULEZ.


My Goligoski jersey shirt needs to get here--it's taking too looooooong.

Stoosh said...

Good to see Tanger back out on the ice.

fleuryous said...

I'll have to agree.

I really like Tanger--even though he "asks too many questions." haha.

Stoosh said...

@ Fleuryous -

Not pissed...just annoyed. You could see it the first time they showed the replay. Not sure why he kept making such a big deal about it.

fleuryous said...

Malkin is working his ass off.

Jonny Van Mundegaarde said...

Cortisone, baby

This is some swell hockey we're playing tonight.

wilsmith said...

So did Pesenon get sent back down already?

fleuryous said...

Holy shit...FLeury stopped that shot in intense traffic.


BEAST.

Stoosh said...

Stempniak's name sounds like something you'd see on a good pierogie place.

"Stempniak's: Pierogies and Fine Polish Cuisine"

wilsmith said...

polish food is the best food.

fleuryous said...

The Arby's commercial ALWAYS makes me think of the "I'm thinkin Arby's" photoshop last year...I think it was during the Philly run.

Tooooooooo funny.

Stoosh said...

mmmmmmmmmmmm...

haluski

wilsmith said...

oh snap! that's what I needed.

fleuryous said...

GENOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

Stoosh said...

MAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLKIN

debrisslide said...

Blues were too busy trying to have sex with men. Malkin was the only person playing hockey. Hence, the goal.

fleuryous said...

KENNEDYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!

debrisslide said...

PRESIDENT FUCKING KENNEDY

<3

fleuryous said...

Observe my icon please...there's a reason for it.


MAKE IT A PHOTOSHOP, STAFF. haha

SteveThePirate said...

YES. the pres says win.

Stoosh said...

KENNNNNEDYYYYY!

wilsmith said...

On the jim rome theme...



There's a wrestler named Kennedy?

-Jerome in Detroit.

fleuryous said...

Zigo, Staal, Scuds, and Gill for the PK.

DO IT. haha.

debrisslide said...

I hope the "save the motherland" photoshop I sent to Staff someday makes it in.

Just saying.

fleuryous said...

http://scores.espn.go.com/nhl/recap?gameId=281101011


Hopefully, it's not too serious--YES, I like Brodeur. haha

fleuryous said...

Cheap wrist slashes, Blues...seriously.

Kat said...

Could someone please tell the Blues Halloween's over. All this slashing is ridiculous.

fleuryous said...

If he had put that in his own net, I would have peed myself with laughter.

Stoosh said...

@ Fleuryous -

I'm sure Uncle Daddy will go home tonight and have his wife/ex-sister-in-law kiss it for him and make it all better.

jovi said...

peter sykora to the rescue ...haha, words i never thought i'd hear

The Goon Blogger said...

That's my Pens. Solid work all around and they're being tough. I though Sykora was gonna kill someone at the end of the period. Godard NEEDS to start running someone on the blues because these slashes are getting ridiculous.

Flyer Hater said...

Who knew that Adam Graves came out of retirement and is now playing with the Blues.

debrisslide said...

So far, we're outshooting 18-9 and we lead 4-2. Statistically perfect game.

/OCD

Flyer Hater said...

Is Goligoski still the worst draft pick in franchise history?

iceangel17 said...

i thought someone would have caught the arena announcer calling janne marian hossa when announcing kennedy's goal... you hear bob errey exclaim "who?!"

The Goon Blogger said...

Gino interview! YES!

fleuryous said...

oooooooh, below the belt, stoosh. haha.


I REALLY like Talbot on Sid's line. He adds the energy we need--especially in the corners.

fleuryous said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
The Goon Blogger said...

Go-go is still no Dome. So I'm pretty sure he's still garbage, fh.

Kat said...

Geno's interviews own me. Hilarious...

anthony black said...

i cherish the moments that are graced with malkin's words. solid solid second period. definitely the kind of game we've needed thus far. lets make sure we hold this down for 60 minutes

debrisslide said...

Talbot's mustache power is going to make this game 5-2.

Kat said...

@ ice angel, I thought that's what I heard. Steigy's hella bitter tonight. Love it.

Flyer Hater said...

Best breakout technique for any Penguins opposition, Staal's missed shots on odd-man rushes. That thing's like a fucking boomerang off the dashers.

fleuryous said...

Ryan Miller must have used a condom, because Semin did NOT get any in.

debrisslide said...

If someone could possibly get a YouTube of Malkin's interview, Kimberlass will probably marry you.

Flyer Hater said...

Could Potash make his questions a little more complex? I was expecting him to quote Othello if the interview went on any longer.

fleuryous said...

And I want Staalski to bury one.


Goligoski is money...never doubted him.

anthony black said...

oh and p.s. what the hell is up with the refs this game?

Kimberlass said...

Debrisslide speaks the truth and I would make an AWESOME housewife.

Flyer Hater said...

Staal couldn't bury one in Arlington Cemetery.

Stoosh said...

FH -

Goligoski is still the worst draft pick in Pens history, but only at LGP. That's the same place where Fleury is still a bust because he gives up more than two goals a night from time to time.

Stoosh said...

Not as good as the interview, but still entertaining.

This was from 06-07, after Sid's asswhooping of Phoenix when he scored while falling down.

fleuryous said...

Tyler Kennedy always follows through--what a great player.

M. Vanderlasser said...

Sykora is still pissed from the Phoenix game and Mr. Scrappy's goal looked like Max's in game 5 of the SCF, eh?

And don't those Pens commercials on FSP look like the players are being held hostage in a basement somewhere?

Penn Pilsner = good.

Stoosh said...

There are posters at LGP who would rather have that version of Les Binkley in net for the Pens if it meant getting Fleury out of there.

fleuryous said...

LGP makes me want to punch babies. And not feel bad about it.


Ugh.

Trade MAF comments deduct about 100 points off of your IQ. So, if you're no more than 100, you're shit out of luck.

Stoosh said...

Dare I say it?

I do...

It's the dreaded third-period, two-goal lead.

Keep them on the attack, Therrien.

fleuryous said...

YES! Send in the too many men photoshops. haha

Stoosh said...

Satan is on pace for 41 goals this season.

Stoosh said...

Whitney needs to teach Goligoski how to run the Whitney Play.

Stoosh said...

Andy Murray looks like my old high school chemistry teacher.

And my old high school chemistry teacher was batshit fucking insane.

fleuryous said...

Max Talbot looks ridiculous with the 'Manchu...but, I can't imagine anyone else with it.


MAF=clutch save.

Stoosh said...

Quick college foobaw update, especially for all of you Penn State fans...


Texas 13, Texas Tech 29
midway through 3rd quarter

and Fleuryous...it's a final.

Louisville 21
Syracuse 28

That's either going to be one pissed off Cardinals team or one beaten-down Cardinals team coming into Heinz Field next week.

Allison said...

I actually just gagged when they showed the replay of maf sitting that goal into his next last scf on the blue's feed

jovi said...

gotta ask what's LPG ... i'm sure its something i'm suppose to know but i don't.

have pity on me

kstewy16 said...

LGP is Letsgopens its a big group of dumbasses who cry if the penguins don't trade for Ovechkin, or don't win every single game, or don't get 200 shots on goal every game.
And they start just about every Pens trade rumor without any basis of truth

jovi said...

WHO CARES ABOUT HOSSA !!!!

HE'S DEAD TO ME

jovi said...

thanks kstewy16

kstewy16 said...

Where's Pesonen at? Did HCMT really pull him off the second line already?

fleuryous said...

LGP=Let's Go Pens.


Don't go there--it's not safe.

Allison said...

I'd like to ask kariya how he liked that free candy

fleuryous said...

Stoosh...I'm hoping for a beaten-down team.

I hope they don't recover as well as the Panthers. haha.

kstewy16 said...

911 dispatch- we have a 217 reported.. Highway robbery by Mason.

wilsmith said...

on college football...

if they rioted in state college after beating a lousy OSU team, how much rioting do you think will take place when Texas Tech and Florida leap-frog them tomorrow?

Stoosh said...

In all honesty, most of the posters at LGP are decent.

There is a somewhat small group there, though, who are either overreactionary after losses or ridiculously critical of personnel moves and/or players. Or all three.

There are a few posters there who have been posting since the day he was drafted that Fleury is a bust, and that Goligoski was one of the absolute worst picks in the history of the franchise.

wilsmith said...

MAAAXXXXXXXXXXXXXx

Stoosh said...

TALBOT!!!


That was a fucking huge goal!

kstewy16 said...

I love people who don't understand why Fleury wasn't automatically a top 5 goalie in the league his rookie year, cus after all, he was a 1st overall pick.

And Max F'in Talbot. FuManchu power.

fleuryous said...

FU MANCHUUUUUUUUUUUUUU.


He can't shave ever.

Stoosh said...

What a play by Orpik to clear that rebound out of the Pens' crease and get that transition started.

fleuryous said...

STAAL, that was HUGE.


Breakawaaaaaaay...he didn't score, but he didn't give up, yo.

Kat said...

Man, one day Jordan Staal will finally score. Bank it.

Talbot and Crosby is life changing right now.

So we must score with almost three mins with empty net... Just a question of who its gonna be

kstewy16 said...

Jeez I hate when the Bibster begins talking like the game is over when there is still time left. If he jinxes us, I will burn my #12 jersey!

fleuryous said...

MAF is a bird-watcher. You can tell. haha.


How he can recover the puck through all of that traffic...Jesus Christ, I love him.

jovi said...

FINALLY !!!! STAAL

fleuryous said...

HAHAHA


I KNEW STAAL WOULD BURY IT.


There ya go. hahahaha.

Kat said...

Told you...

Malkin is the nicest mother fucker i've ever seen.
Fucking god.
Give that man his A back.

wilsmith said...

a bold statement by kat.

Jordan Staal actually SCORES a goal and the Penguins win an important game.

Allison said...

Hahahaha so that's how staal finally gets it. Hopefully they start coming now.

Matt said...

STAAAAAAL!!!

And na na na na is the last player to touch the puck. NICE.

Kat said...

Solid game. Solid effort all around. So nice to see some serious hard work pay off.

anthony black said...

just a solid game, i couldn't be more happy with how we played tonight.

jovi said...

i agree w/ kstewy16, that's the 2nd time i've seen malkin give up the puck (and they were both to Staal).

i think malkin has a man-crush :0

That was an absolutly gorgeous game. The one bad play was Sykora getting beat to the net by his man. Other than that absolutly perfect in every facet. That's a great way to end the road trip.

Though, I guess I'm a little upset at the lack of goonery on our side. There were lots of slashes, but no response from the likes of Godard or Orpik. Be nice to see a little behind the play stick between the legs and lift actually. Nothing like getting crotched by a hockey stick.

Satan and Crosby looked good together for the first time and Talbot I think is the icing on the cake, absolutly great.

Jordan Staal snipes empty nets.

debrisslide said...

Hopefully the turnaround of our October slump. Happy!

Janne might not have scored but he was doing his job when he was on the ice. TÄNÄ ILTANA EI TUU PAKKEJA.

Max's goal was life-changing. Can't wait to see the highlight reel, since the announcers from St. Louis refused to comment on the game as their team started losing like shit.

Kimberlass said...

Malkin was just the most polite man on earth. "No, really, take this empty netter, Staal. You need it."

I wish Staal had scored otherwise, though. I'd like to see him prove something a little more than the fact that he can get a puck past the air.

SteveThePirate said...

great game. classy move geno.

norojo said...

random question but did anyone notice who is wearing the A this month with Scuds?

kstewy16 said...

Talbot Sid Satan line was golden. Speaking of gold, the Golden boy looked good, especially his sandwich of the game. Gene Gene the Scoring Machine showed why he isn't Ovechkin. I would bet my life on Ovechkin shooting that puck instead of giving it to a teammate who needed it. Maybe if Semin needed one more goal to pass Malkin in stats he would have passed it, but just because the guy was without a goal? Ovechkin would have shot it.

Matt said...

God I hope the Blues make the playoffs this year. They were an entertaining team to play against. Lots of "ohhh shit" moments on defense tonight.

Overall, a very heartening win. Wooo!

@norojo

None other than the USS Hal Gill.

fleuryous said...

Gill is an A.

Jonny Van Mundegaarde said...

kat with the prescience...

I know this may be early, and it was only against the Blues, but I'd like to see these lines stay together for awhile, they need to gel.
