In a surprising twist to the hit series, Heroes debuted a new character Monday night.


Bob Smizik -- With the ability to ignore the Pensblog

..................................................................

Huge day in that department, too. If you didn't read through the comments in that post, they're definitely worth your while.
Props to Will from Butler for actually getting a response from B-Smiz.
...................................................................

Commenter Seth e-mailed us this gem.

If you don't want to click that link, all you need to know is that sources are telling KDKA's investigative reporter Andy Sheehan that the announcement of a Pittsburgh arena deal may be made in the coming days.

Commenters Bake and Joshua gave us this article.

That article simply says that the NHL All-Star Game was the highest-rated television show in only two U.S. markets that evening -- Pittsburgh and Buffalo.
...........................

---Scott Burnside of ESPN.com is thinking that the Penguins need to trade for a veteran defenseman.

---TSN.ca's Power Rankings are hot off the presses. Pens are 11th...

---Shelley Anderson gives us a nice piece on the Father-Son Road Trip....

....................................

Take a quick peek at this clip that has a One From The Heart feel to it.
While you're there, you can check out how big of a mess Ron Hextall was.

Pensblog friend Tom found the video of the hockey hole-in-one that occurred over the weekend.

Want an extended and opposite view of Petr Nedved's OT goal in '96?

Commenter Shorty e-mailed this to us a while back, and we finally get to use it:
The Florida Panther Cheerleading Squad Being A Joke.
.....................................

A little trade to talk about. Craig Conroy goes back to the Flames.
The Kings, just as their own minions failed to put Humpty Dumpty back together again, have struggled to assemble a winning team again.



Humpty Dumpty -- Dead tonight at the age of 32.

Speaking of which...

Barbaro was murdered today.
No relation to John Barbaro, the Mellon Arena Public-Address Announcer.

................

Slow night in the "New NHL".

Around the Atlantic tonight, the Rangers smoke the Bruins.

It seems like the Bruins only show up when they play the Pens. Dicks.


Picture: Bruin players look in horror after realizing how fat that girl from The Cosby Show and That's So Raven has gotten.


Here she is, dominating as Olivia on the Cosby Show in the early '90s.


2003 -- Hey, is that the little girl from the Cosby Show? Damn.


2007 -- Tank
The picture itself registers a 3.2 on the Richter Scale.

It was a special night in Montreal as world-class goaltender Ken Dryden's number was retired.

Dryden won six Stanley Cups, two Vezina Trophies, a Conn Smythe Trophy and was a first-team all-star five times in an eight-year career from 1971 to 1979.

In the regular season, he won 258 games, lost only 57 and tied 74.

His poop is accepted as currency in the province of Quebec.


How sick are those numbers?
If your number gets retired by the Habs, you must have done some pretty big things.
Unreal.

The Habs got a 3-1 win over the Sens on this emotional night.

.....

It feels like the Pens haven't played a home game in a year.
As always, big game.

Adam said...

Zingggggggg

Arlow said...

Damn! You guys hit me with so much hockey knowledge but I had no idea the chunky chick with the badonkadonk was the same girl from "The Cosby Show". God damn I'm getting old.

Will said...

something i wrote well, maybe the funniest things i have even seen. The only thing i can think of is if you guys included the link to the site, he just didn't want to give you guys free puplicity.


anyone going to the game on Thursday?

Will said...

WAIT I KNOW, YOU SHOULD HAVE ADDED THE PICTURES!!!!

Shorty said...

Wow, what a great way to start my day...my 2nd PensBlog mention! (the other from informing u that u were linked on deadspin) I won't be there Thurs, but goin to Sid vs. Ovechkin on Saturday.

CDY said...

Eric Brewer?!? That would be awesome! I still think moving Malone would be a mistake though.

Shorty said...

Being a huge Barrasso fan that picture always pisses me off w/ all those stupid rats. And that ref hiding like a little bitch.

dogwithshftyeyes said...

Just to comment on Barbaro...

Mark Madden put it best: "More people care about Barbaro than they do about starving children in countries where they get no food. IT'S AN ANIMAL!"

Staff said...

will is the man

DCJeff said...

More proof that Bob hates you guys -- he sent me a response today:

"Why would the fact that I think Pittsburgh will survive the unlikely departure of the Penguins so offend you? Why are hockey fans so defensive? I am astounded. Baltimore lost the Colts, a far more successful and storied team than the Penguins, in 1984. It is thriving more than ever today." -- Bob Smizik

I feel touched by genius.

Staff said...

yea, he must officially hate us.

well, hatred is a powerful emotion

Tee said...

don't know if anyone saw this... yeah I'm pretty sure sid could nail anyone's girlfriend at any given time... I'd totally encourage it... if I only had a girlfriend

Adrienne said...

Tee, I remember that game. I saw that girl (she was like 3 sections over) and took a picture of it, and now it's god only knows where on my HD.
Regardless, she got that shit taken off her in the 2nd period. Hockey girls are such sluts.. damn :(

Anonymous said...

the overall response was, "well, you actually didnt think somebody wouldnt post the picture and not get any shit from it."
