Pens take out the Trash 3-1.

Pensblog Staff said...

This is all on BNG.. joke

Resputan said...

Lots of excitement in the first period since I wont be able to get there until the second. Pens up by 2 after 1

Andrew said...

As a Penguins fan I feel like this man: http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/years/2009/0106091vail1.html

...Surrounded by the gawking nhl fandom...

Go Pens!

christina said...

Not feeling good about this game. Then again, I was feeling good about the Panthers and Rags games.


Therefore, Pens win on an OT goal from Kennedy.
3-2 Pens.

btumpak said...

Letang goes off....

lets do this shit!

go pens.

pensfan871 said...

I'm not making any win/lose predictions, but Malkin is gonna have a good game. Same with Kennedy.

Damian M. Romano said...

I haven't been confident with any game recently. If the Pens lost to the second worse team in the NHL tonight, does that make us the worst (-NYI)? TRADE STAAL!

SexyChubbs said...

Mark it down...

Five goals for the Pens tonight.

Two of them on the Power Play.

Consider it done.

PittHockey said...

we're getting shut out again. bank on it.

SexyChubbs said...

Also...As I was catching up on CBlog, I wanted to say two things:

1. I live in the DC Area, so I'm down for meeting up.

2. I just got may blue Malkin jersey in the mail today. I take offense to the comment about the guy in the Blue Malkin jersey saying he believed in the team the whole year.

My wife's not a hot blond anyway, so it's ok.

frank said...

this sounds ridiculous, but... is it possible that the penguins do not like the coaching staff and are not giving it their all in hopes that the coaching staff gets replaced?


lets be honest, therrien seems like a sour puss.

PittHockey said...

oh, and after we lose, iceburgh gets fired.

frank said...

maybe i should have asked that more generally. has a team ever not tried so that they could get their coach fired?

nicholas richter said...

getting out of the funk tonight...

akus said...

For pops,
(from EN)
Yeoke

from SIS Wiki,

"Atlanta Thrashers,
Superstars include Ilya Kovalchuk, Erik Christiansenlol, Marty Reasoner, and what's left of Dany Heatley's Ferarri.

The Big K said...

Just win baby.

Just win.

PittHockey said...

[Do something]

pops said...

hahahaa. nice

...

once again, im gonna keep my expectations low.
hoping for more than 20 shots on goal, NO, I say NO posts, no matter how much therrien thinks its a good sign to hit them, and no failures on a 5 on 3 because the second the pens get one, they should try to take a penalty...

also, a win would be super

Hip said...

Go Pens.

pops said...

also, stat that the world is coming to an end

pens 5 on 3...

4 for 14 this season.

UUUUUUUUUUUUGH

BlacknGold66 said...

I'm 100% fine with this entire game riding on mine and Phil's shoulders.


100% fine.

PittHockey said...

4 for 14 and 0 for 32.

FFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-

The Goon Blogger said...

Some clown was bagging on Scuderi in 1,000,000 Penguins Fans on the Facebook.

TGB=Lost all Faith in Humanity.

I stand by my prediction: Colby scores two and pees in Crosby's face. Pittsburgh commits suicide until Sunday.

The Goon Blogger said...

BnG is clutch city, just sayin'.

PittHockey said...

atlanta is calling this a must win game.

I'm sure that's just a typo for sure win.

Flyer Hater said...

About Effing time for Phil Collins.

akus said...

After this losing streak i may have to retire my Pens shirts, and shop the StoreBlog.

My new Sid T, is 1-6.

If Lehtonin is starting? Shit 3 goals easy, thats prolly in the first.

If its Moose?

Aw lame...

letsgopsu said...

I still think we won't win until staff gives Red and Andy the nod.

Flyer Hater said...

Phil Collins trumps Red and Andy.

Nature Boy said...

If the pens lose tonight meeting on the west end bridge.

urban said...

@frank - I was thinking the same exact thing after they had the "players-only meeting". Possible mutiny.

jovi said...

Phil, nice choice, but I like "Tonight,Tonight"

same meaning -- get this crap DONE.

nikki said...

Right now I'm just praying that somehow the delivery person fights their way through alllllll the snow to get me my jersey before the game

superstitiousblog

btumpak said...

tears may fly if we score a PP goal and win!

PittHockey said...

usually if its not delivered by 6pm its not gonna get delivered. :/

Chubs said...

@FH- New avatar, or have I just not been around much?

Hopefully, Phil gets it done. Otherwise, I'm mixing Ritalin and Ritalout.

PittHockey said...

pp goal? hahhahahahahahahhaha

PittHockey said...

a WIN?! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

FireFox said...

Pens lose this and all the stops have to come out for the gameday character. I would hate to resort to using him, but the season is in jeopardy.

If the Pens lose against the Thrashers, Buries It himself needs to make an appearance.

GO PENS!!!!!!

Flyer Hater said...

"@FH- New avatar, or have I just not been around much?"

Gary Thorne=beast

PittHockey said...

doesn't he do baseball now?

mitch said...

need to break out ron jeremy

nikki said...

I'm on the west coast so there is still hope!! I'm really hoping it'll magically arrive before puckdrop...

Flyer Hater said...

"doesn't he do baseball now?"

It's not like he broadcasted hockey for more than 20 years and was the voice of some of the greatest moments in NHL history, but you're right, I shouldn't recognize that because he now does Orioles games because the commissioner is a toolbag.

Joke.

Rba said...

Ah yeah, Gary is an awesome announcer, just one of the best to ever grace our ears.

PenguinsExperience.com said...

The Pens finally score first, score a power play goal, and then lose in the third.

MAS returns.

The Goon Blogger said...

I must say, it's interesting watching the new fans deal with their first rough patch. Your average new fan doesn't remember 03-04, for example.

wilsmith said...

A razor hasn't touched my face in five years.

for the sake of ending this streak, I made the sacrifice.

uggghhhh

I couldnt resist keeping a mustache.

wilsmith said...

ps, werent we suppose to gather the beards of cblog for the playoffs last year? we dropped the ball on that one.

PittHockey said...

All you had to do was type "yes".

PenguinsExperience.com said...

wilsmith, that's why the Pens lost.

wilsmith said...

and philly plays at washington but instead versus airs boston and minny?

I dont get it.

wilsmith said...

for keeping it? because I just now took it off.

PittHockey said...

bongo players are ratings destroyers

wilsmith said...

yeah but that'll be a killer game.

silly versus.

PenguinsExperience.com said...

No, they lost because we didn't gather the beards of cblog for the playoffs last year.

Flyer Hater said...

"All you had to do was type "yes"."

Why, when I can make you look like a fool again?

Rufio Rufio said...

Pens Win 4-2.

Take that to the Bank

Malkin with 3 points G,A,A

One on the PP

and a Goal from Whitney

PittHockey said...

go you, e-thug.

Annie S said...

People really, really need to quit with the bogus game predictions. Even if you end up being right, nobody cares.

And I mean that in the best possible way. ;)

wilsmith said...

Every time someone tries to get on the front page of the blog by making a prediction, God not only kills a baby penguin in the antarctic, but it increases the likelihood that player won't score -- by a factor of 10.

It's like saying "shut-out" with 5 minutes to go in the game.

quiteprolific said...

Its a sad day when a troller gets the first post on gameday...

Flyer Hater said...

It's even sadder that someone cares who gets the first post.

kstewy16 said...

Its much easier to get on the front page by saying something stupid than it is to predict the outcome.

Phil Collins FTW.
I've got the Genesis blasting already.

Go Pens.

SexyChubbs said...

Damn...I thought expressing your feelings about the upcoming game is what being a fan was all about.

Fuck it...I still stand by my 5 goal prediction.

if they dont win
theres gunna be a youtube of me jumping off the cathedral of learning

kstewy16 said...

Does FSN have a fire alarm going off in their main building?

Flyer Hater said...

"Damn...I thought expressing your feelings about the upcoming game is what being a fan was all about."

Apparently, it's all about being melodramatic.

Chubs said...

Damn, things are testy around here.

nikki said...

Jersey Update: the delivery people just called, my mom is picking it up on her way home, this is a good sign
This jersey will be life changing, I can feel it

Raybin said...

I can't believe no one has said that they can feel a win coming in the air tonight, oh lord.

quiteprolific said...

Wow...sorry Im actually not a big "first" guy just making a freaking observation that I enjoy the discussion and thats the first thing I see. I also love how I cannot even comment on something so mundane without people having to comeback with a dick comment.

kstewy16 said...

Malkin in Russian guy!!! I love you're name!

I have a Malkin Magnitogorsk Jersey with his name in Russian on the back, but I'm afraid to wear it cus no one will know what it is lol.

Flyer Hater said...

"I also love how I cannot even comment on something so mundane without people having to comeback with a dick comment."

This isn't bullshit bulletin, this is the big leagues. Deal with it.

Joke.

Raybin said...

'Cause we've been waiting for this moment for all of our lives. Or the past 5 games have felt as such, anyway.

Kurt said...

Touche Annie...touche

wilsmith said...

BNG will deliver.

have faith.

Flyer Hater said...

Raybin, Peter Gabriel=Stunned

Raybin said...

FH is in rare form tonight already. Toughen up the softies!

SexyChubbs said...

Flyer Hater is on fire tonight.

I think that's a good sign.

PittHockey said...

hey FH,

are you going to make a castle with all that sand in your vagina?

Raybin said...

Peter Gabriel < Phil Collins

Sammy Hagar = David Lee Roth

Ron Wood > Brian Jones

Raybin said...

PittHockey, you're not a very quick study are you?

This is how he is. Laugh at it and job back. But have fun doing it!

The Goon Blogger said...

FH is laying bitches out tonight. Sweet Chin Music!

quiteprolific said...

Me=Fail.


There ya go...you ass.

Annie S said...

I really don't mean to be a total bitch - it's just getting old.

wilsmith said...

Sammy Hagar = David Lee Roth

you are officially kicked out of cblog.

Flyer Hater said...

"Sammy Hagar = David Lee Roth"

Raybin=lost all my respect

Raybin said...

I predict Annie S will make someone cry.

SexyChubbs said...

PittHockey already jobbed. He called FH an "e-thug." Now he went with the ever-classic "sand in the vagina" quip.

In all fairness, I think he's on a roll.

PittHockey said...

i can't top king shit of fuck mountain, so I'm not bothering to try.

like the penguins.

The Goon Blogger said...

@kstewy16

People will for sure know it in Pittsburgh at least.

Hell, I have a Cyrillic Valery Kharlarmov CCCP National Team jersey (best thing in the world) and people recognize it.

Raybin said...

I can't hear you with all these bottles of Cabo Wabo plugging my ears


I suggest y'all put on your stretchy pants, feather your hair, and go kiss the lips off your David Lee Roth posters.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Flyer Hater said...

"PittHockey, you're not a very quick study are you?"

PittHockey definitely got stuffed into a few lockers in his day.

You can't change the establishment, because I am the goddamn establishment.

Wooo!

SexyChubbs said...

No bitchiness noted. I'm trying to get over my anxiety for tonight's game by making an outlandish prediction like 2 power play goals, 5 goal total. It's my way of being optimistic.

It's like making a prediction that Staal may actually get a shot that comes within 2 feet of the net and Satan keeps his stick on the ice.

Chubs said...

Hagar= Diamond Dave?

Over my dead Elmo.

jefe p said...

my prediction is that i wont see this game til wednesday or thursday. the good part about this is that the bridges will be clear by then.

go pens.

quiteprolific said...

aaaaaand thats why I dont even attempt to come anywhere close to FH...i just accept the fail and hope the establishment forgives me.

The Goon Blogger said...

Raybin...I don't even know what to say...

You might as well Jump!

PittHockey said...

K for your information, asshole, I have seen a lion. And not one of your crap ass queen of the jungle homoerotic pussy-cat lions. A real lion, with fangs and horns and wings and shit. Don't pull your fucking wierd ass african voodoo hypnosis crap on me when you don't even know wtf you're talking about.

Raybin said...

You ask me if I have a God complex. Let me tell you something...I am God.

Flyer Hater said...

"K for your information, asshole, I have seen a lion. And not one of your crap ass queen of the jungle homoerotic pussy-cat lions. A real lion, with fangs and horns and wings and shit.

And which personality is this?

The Goon Blogger said...

What the fuck is PittHockey even talking about?

Gametime, cya after cblog.

Do SOMETHING!

SexyChubbs said...

"we're getting shut out again. bank on it."

"pp goal? hahhahahahahahahhaha"

"a WIN?! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA"


"i can't top king shit of fuck mountain, so I'm not bothering to try.

Does PittHockey seem like GoCapsGo to anyone else?

I want a t-shirt made about me with that on the front.

Raybin said...

No love for Gary Cherone?

PenguinsExperience.com said...

I wish I were a lion.

Flyer Hater said...

I'm more of a fan of the new Phillipino dude in Journey who sounds more like Perry than Perry ever did.

Raybin said...

Flyer Hater, now you're just being craaaaaaaaaaazy!

I'd say Steve Perry would be a good gameday choice, except that he's too awesome even for a gameday character.

Dennis DeYoung on the other hand...

Raybin said...

Too much man

Flyer Hater said...

You gotta have brass balls to survive in c-blog.

Rba said...

Boris Valajokes playing tonight

Over under number of nut punches at 2.

kstewy16 said...

Well I put on my MM Malkin jersey. I'm hoping it brings some luck to Geno tonight.
My girlfriend just looked at me funny when i ran into my room, grabbed this random jersey out of the back of my closet and came back out to the living room like nothing had happened.

PittHockey said...

potash!

quiteprolific said...

can never go wrong with Glengarry.

PittHockey said...

I can't lower my trolling to the level of a caps fan. it just isn't possible.

wilsmith said...

The Pens should put the locker room refreshments under a "For Finishers Only" sign.

dominoes pizza included.

Flyer Hater said...

"I can't lower my trolling to the level of a caps fan. it just isn't possible."

The loss of a few more brain cells should do the trick.

Raybin said...

Glengarry Glen Ross...what a movie.

You think this is abuse? You think this is abuse, you cocksucker? You can't take this, how can you take the abuse you get on a sit? You don't like it, leave.

PH - Good answer.

here we go bitches

wilsmith said...

oh leave pitthockey alone.

whatd he ever do to anyone

SexyChubbs said...

Good start. Great work by Tenko

Rba said...

why did Malkin not fucking shoot there and backhand pass to noone? Ughhh.

PittHockey said...

FH, you'd be the expert at that sort of thing.

I'm sure you can give us a step-by-step.

PittHockey said...

Tank is fighting? holy shit.

Rba said...

Fightblog, fedex and colby

quiteprolific said...

freaking fedex!!!

SexyChubbs said...

Holy Shit!

What a shot by Fedo

Ken said...

Anyone have a feed to the game for the out of town fans?

Jonathan said...

First.

wilsmith said...

that'll straighten that beak out.

Allison said...

Woahhhh fedo.

PenguinsExperience.com said...

Fedotenko is awesome.

PenguinsExperience.com said...

Ken, feed: http://atdhe.net/live-tv-2.php?i=590

jayness said...

Anddd broken hand.

Rba said...

FedEx needs an A, nuff said, he does more for this team than literally anyone right now. Fucker has heart man.

Rba said...

Fedex went to the locker room too after the fight, uh oh.

PittHockey said...

rba: he just needed more foil.

Ken said...

Thanks a shit ton Pens Experience.

SexyChubbs said...

If Atlanta gets the first goal, the team will be crushed.

As will I.

However, the long-term sub that covers my classes as I settle into a nice, depressed, alcholic haze will be pleased about the situation.

PittHockey said...

refs are jobbing us already?

PenguinsExperience.com said...

A Savard!

PittHockey said...

pk = Yeoke.

Matt said...

As vagynr has shown, to be a Caps fan you need to abandon all reason, ally yourself with Philly fans, and surround yourself with douches who have convinced you they're nice people.

Our PK is more potent than our PP. Ugh.

Rba said...

Valabek down, Crosby in the box, 2 mins for Nutcracking, i mean High Sticking.

Aubrey said...

I love cblog...yall make me joyous...with that being said, go pens.

jayness said...

SexyChubbs - I'm certified. Give me a look when you go postal please.

PenguinsExperience.com said...

I would much rather be a man down than a man up.

PittHockey said...

damn that post.

Allison said...

*post*
=(

Matt said...

Dude! Whitney! Nice!

PittHockey said...

the post enjoys your sweet, sweet tears!

PittHockey said...

kovalchuk blows, wouldn't trade a bag of used pucks for him.

PittHockey said...

colby buried him?

PenguinsExperience.com said...

"He likes him! It's just a hug!"

Classic.

jayness said...

They were spooning like olden, golden times.

Matt said...

PP time. Everyone get out your tinfoil hats...

SexyChubbs said...

Aaahhhh!!!!

I think Sid was screwed, shoot or pass, on that one.

Nice tussle with Colby.

@jayness -

How's high school English sound? Can you make it to the DC area by morning?

PittHockey said...

Yeoke time.

Matt said...

"Holding the stick" sounds like more than just a hug

quiteprolific said...

English sucks to teach...I know.

PittHockey said...

refs continue the jobbing

AHHHH it's the worst PK in the league! Please break the slump, Pens!

SexyChubbs said...

Bullshit icing call. At least the draw was at center, not that it makes much of an f'n difference

PittHockey said...

PenguinsExperience.com said...

SHOCKED that the Penguins didn't score on that power play.

PenguinsExperience.com said...

Did Feds come back out after the fight?

jayness said...

Unfortunately, i'm Social Studies.

At least Jordan wasn't out on that PP.

PittHockey said...

tank is out.

game over.

jayness said...

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that Gogo and Gill are being held out because of an upcoming trade.

Fedex out for the game.

SexyChubbs said...

FedEx is out for the game.

Fuck!

Why can't we finish a damn chance?!

PenguinsExperience.com said...

Great, Feds hurt his hand on Colby's giant nose.

SexyChubbs said...

Did Boucher just watch as that puck went past him?

Matt said...

I feel like the Penguins' PP should be accompanied by the Benny Hill theme at this point. It's a circus of ineptitude at points.

jayness said...

Colby f'ing Armstrong just threw Staal around like a rag doll. Glad to see he's using all that size people rave about.

sven butenschon said...

I haven't seen someone take a shot to the chin like that since my prom date

FedEx won't return
that sucks

quiteprolific said...

@jayness

I had said something about that yesterday...I would think more for Gogo than Gill in a trade I would assume...I dig Gill but I dont know if hes a huge bargaining chip.

Matt said...

"If we score more goals than Atlanta, I'm pretty sure we'll win" ~ USS Hal Gill

What's worse: the quote or the fact I'm nodding in agreement to it?

quiteprolific said...

Im fairly sure not many people will feel sorry for yeoke when he gets canned.

PittHockey said...

even yeoke won't feel bad when he gets canned.

PittHockey said...

FUCK

Matt said...

AHHHHHHHHH TK bury it damn it!!!

jayness said...

What a pass by Dups.

PenguinsExperience.com said...

OOOH! Kennedy!

NO! NOT A POWER PLAY!

SexyChubbs said...

Are you fucking kidding me?

PenguinsExperience.com said...

Tonight we're making Colby look like a superstar.

jayness said...

Whitney's been all over the place, btw.

SexyChubbs said...

Matt -

Back-to-back, maybe the two funniest comments of the night so far. Benny Hill? Nodding in agreement?

I'm glad we can laugh at a time like this.
