Sopcast info. [P2P]
............................................................

We were talking with Big Earl over at [ Battle of California ]

He says look for the Pens power play to have their way with the Ducks.
The Ducks have given up 10 goals this year. 8 on the power play.
And the Ducks are drained. This is already their fifth game.

The Ducks lost 4-0 to Columbus last night.

Hopefully everyone has cooled down. Nothing worse than getting dominated on opening night.
But as commentor Stoosh said.
If that was a game in the middle of the season, no one would of cared that much.

Stat of the night:
Mark Recchi: 18:21 minutes of ice time
Erik Christensen: 13:36 minutes of ice time

We don't hate Mark Recchi, solid NHL player.
But those minutes need to be swtiched.
Rex is getting up there.

But hey, we run a blog.
We don't coach.
So whatev.

LOL, you can't tell me that Brooks Orpik doesn't look like a serial killer in that picture. He makes John Wayne Gacy look like a nice guy.

CaucasianInvasion said...

Loving Colby's Alfalfa look there.

Tee said...

Yeah I was thinking that about orpik too.. he looks like he's been fighting a holy war for 20 years. Those eyes are scary as hell.

Is it me, or do Jarkko Ruutu and Adam Hall look very similar?

tecmo_bowl_bo_jackson said...

Looks like Gonch and Pink got blazed right before the photo-op.

Sexual T said...

Has anyone got that sopcast to work yet? I've tried a few times, nothing works.Advice?

The Hebrew Hammer said...

When will Paul Steigerwald learn that number 5 is Darryl Sydor?

Few points on the first period:

1. Much more intensity than last night, we have definitely came to play. When two of your top forwards are injured blocking shots that tells you all you need to know about the effort.

2. Mark Eaton sacrificed his front teeth to save a goal late, what a game he's played thus far.

3. Petr Sykora doing his best Gary Roberts impression to get the goal.

4. Can someone please tell our PP that we're allowed to get someone in front of the goaltender.

5. If Mark Recchi is playing on the first PP into November then i'll become a Wheeling Nailers fan.

Is Sopcast working for anyone. I've tried a few times and it just buffers around 20% indefinitely. How reliable/consistent is this thing?

pensblog jeff said...

One word: not.


Though I'm watching OSU right now just fine.

pensblog jeff said...

OKay... got the pens game sopcast working.

YOu have to use to VLC trick. Check the FAQ link staff posted for instructions.

tecmo_bowl_bo_jackson said...

Cool win.

PittHockey said...

nice win. sykora moving to malkin's wing was a good choice.

PittHockey said...

what's this vlc trick?

I'm on a mac and can't use sopcast, but I have vlc.
Does it bypass sopcast and stream directly?

Otherwise I'm going to get hit by withdrawl after the center ice online preview ends.

The Hebrew Hammer said...

WOOOOOOOOO, great win.

1. Sykora=stud

2. BGL=our best forechecker right now.

Korn said...

BGL is a monster. I LIKE him on Sid's wing.

Malkin + Sykora should be set in stone.

Good to get Malone on track with a nice goal, hopefully it continues.

MAF, shaky

And does anyone else think Hall looks like Mayor Luke??

Tee said...

Honestly, don't even bother with sopcast. www.streamtvnow.tv carried almost every game last year and the streams are much better quality and more reliable... its only 15$ for 3 months so it's my method of choice.

Doc Nagel said...

I don't think Sopcast works on Macs, even with VLC. I also couldn't get the free NHL Center Ice preview to work well, but on my decrepit old Dell laptop, no problem at all. Everything's built to work with Internet Explorer, despite it being the worst browser in the world.

The Hebrew Hammer said...

Sopcast=disgrace

Jonny V said...

Sykora and Malking got the whole Magnitogorsk connection thing going as Steigy pointed out. I hope they stay together. BGL looks like he didn't take this offseason as a joke. I'm loving that, a little disappointed in his play last year, but if he keeps playing like this? Fuckin' A...

Tecmo Bowl, is that a Steeler in your avatar?? U better watch it buddy, adrienne hates the steelers! you'll anger her because she's a girl that likes hockey and hates football and calls steelers fans faggots and she's mean, grrrr

And they need to remake this commercial, but substitute Gary Roberts for Bruce Smith.
Bad things indeed...

The Hebrew Hammer said...

The Picture at the top may be the funniest thing i've ever seen...

pensblog jeff said...

sopcast is what it is: a couple of guys in their basements pirating video streams.

I tried signing up for streamtvnow, but I couldn't figure out how to pay for the damned thing.

pensblog jeff said...

For you naysayers, I was able to watch all of the football games,part of the pens game, part of the phoenix game, and I'm watching vancouver right now.

Loser Chris said...

Yeah, what's the VLC trick? I couldn't find anything about it in the FAQs.
