Whatev..Pens Lose


5 - 2


Tonight was the maiden voyage of Pens TV.
At first it looked like it was going to be a bust.
But it sorted itself out, and it really wasn't that bad.

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

It was just good to see the great game again.
Mellon Arena never looked so good.

Got to see the highlight of Mark Eaton-Orr's great goal in the first period.

Paul Steigerwald and Bob Errey time.

The second period was sluggish, with both teams jobbing back and forth.
Chris Draper is 3,000 years old.
He scored to tie it.

Homo

With like 6 seconds to go.
MAF made a sick safe, but Henrik Zetterberg was everywhere.
2-1.

The third period wasn't much to talk about.
The Pens were just about to start buzzing, when the ref decided to call a penalty on Gary Roberts for being awesome.


It was a good call.
The Wings wasted no time.
3-1.

Game over..

Not so fast.

Goalie pulled.

Evgeni Malkin scored a goal off a slapshot that cannot be comprehended.
Whenever they release highlights of the game, this will be something you will need to see.


The Penguins had another really quick chance.
But Bing couldn't seal the deal.
If this was November, it would've been in the back of the net.
But it's not.
And the Wings got the puck and iced it with a empty-netter.
Then they scored again to make it look like it wasn't close.
Thats why the Red Wings are gay.

Other notes
  • Angelo Espositio looked like he is 12 years old
  • Letang was ok
  • Adam Hall was nothing too great
  • Mark Eaton has a visor
  • Erik Christensen/Evegeni Malkin could be a solid combo if they play together.
  • Mark Reechi. Whatev
  • Sluggish game over all
  • Errey and Steigy were a little too concerned about how good Detroit is. Who cares.

In preparation for Sunday's timekeeping affair for the Steeler game, we did the same thing during the third quarter of Michigan-Penn State on Saturday.

15:00 of playing time in the third quarter.
2 minutes, 46 seconds was spent actually playing.
And that's with the gameclock stopping on first downs, and a 25-second playclock instead of the NFL's 40 seconds.
That means, basically, more playing time occurs in collegiate games.

Our guess of 12 minutes may be on the mark.

For the Steeler game, we will have it broken down even further, in regards to offense, defense, and special teams.

NHL Fanhouse Blog

The Fanhouse at AOL is our first stop every day.
That's not a statement intended for flattery. It really is the first stop.

We mention that today because Greg Wyzhynski over there did the Penguins preview recently [ Fanhouse ]



He alludes to Crosby Hater Nation, the doubts surrounding Michel Therrien, and links us to a site devoted to hating on Crosby. [ IHateCrosby.com ]

Don't care who you are, this photoshop is funny.

Apparently, someone threw his Art Ross, Hart, and Lester B. Pearson trophies into the pool.

Upon further review, we see that the site is primarily a message board, and most of the posts in the forum are links to porn.
Whatev.

Also on Fanhouse, Chris Pronger is still a douchebag. [ Fanhouse ]

When asked what he thought about the NHL expanding to Europe:

"How are you going to run the draft? Are you gonna take a Canadian kid and ship him off to Europe?"

Yeah, too bad kids from Europe have been coming over to America to play hockey for the better part of a quarter of a century.
If Pronger and his wife could have it their way, Anaheim would play 82 home games per year on the days that they deem fit.


They have become the first couple of hockey because they are jokes.
Is she wearing a Canada hat? Damn it.

If you would be against NHL European expansion, like we are, just say that it wouldn't be cost-feasible for teams to fly overseas for a 3-hour game and fly back.
Don't say something like Pronger did which makes no sense at all.

And if the NHL expansion means they would start a separate NHL in Europe,
then the quality of play in the NHL as we know it will turn to mud.

A newspaper up in Nova Scotia lists the top 10 players ever to come out of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. [ The Chronicle Herald ]

Lemieux was #1.
He scored 282 points in 70 games in his final year. 4.03 points per game.
He didn't show up in the playoffs that season, averaging just 3.71 in 14 games.

Crosby was #4.

The Devils are pissed that Cam Janssen was injured in a preseason game when his new RBK jersey was ripped and pulled over his head during a fight. Devils are whining. [ NY Post ]
He's still ugly.

Goalie Dan Cloutier has been sent to the minors. [ Yahoo ]

Dan Boyle cuts himself because he is emo [tsn.ca]

"Boyle was injured in the Lightning locker room when distracted while hanging up his skates. A skate slipped off of the hook and hit him in his left wrist, cutting a tendon.

What a mistake.

NHLToL was sent a still from the new Resident Evil movie.
Doesn't look like a photoshop, but one of the homos is wearing a Predators jersey.



Those jerseys look pretty busy.
Didn't need the number on the front.

Some Penguins players are bitching about the new unis

Quote from Gary Roberts:

"My hands are soaked, my feet are soaked," he said. "I feel like it's May, in the playoffs, I'm sweating so much. That seems to be a complaint with a lot of guys."

Reason enough to switch back immediately

Highlights magazine was my go-to 'taking a crap reading material' from 1987 - 1989.

Ahh, memories.

last nite my friends and i tried to go to the game. when we got there, they said there was something wrong with our tickets and to go to the box office. when we got there, they said that the ticket holder had cancelled our tickets and gotten them reprinted. we got the tickets from a girl in our class, so we didn't know the name of the ticketholder and were shit of out luck. has this ever happened to anyone else? do the season ticket holders know about this? it sounds like it could be a good way to really screw the people that buy scalped tickets.

"Good thing they played 1/2 the first on the PP, or the game would be scoreless, but I wouldn't count on Sheaton scoring in the regular season." - King Sid the Great 87


Disrespecting Mark Eaton by calling him "Sheaton" should be punishable be removing all of this guys gay porn and penis pumps.
