GameDay (7) -- Pens @ Caps


Verizon Center

7:00

[wsh.png]
3 - 3 - 0

Probably the most anticipated game of the young season.
The Capitals organization is making a big deal out of it, as they have organized a "whiteout" for the game.
Unfortunately for them, they forgot they're playing the Pens.

The Caps look to be not as much of a joke as they have been in recent years.
The last thing the Eastern Conference needs is another team jumping into everything.
But it looks like they'll be taking Atlanta's place.

The Verizon Center can be an unfriendly place when you're trailing.
Never mind. YOUTUBE ALREADY EMBEDDED.

Man That Video Brings Back Memories

So when do the letsgopens chants start dominating the Verizon Center? That's really the only question that's in doubt concerning this game.

Total domination 5-1 victory, suck it Crapitals.

Go Pens.

Brett said...

What a lightning wrister by Christensen in-game.. I wish they had the full shootout in the vid, I think I remember Christensen netting it.

The Hebrew Hammer said...

Crusher not in the lineup tonight, let's hope it doesn't go to a shootout...

The Hebrew Hammer said...

Gotta love Caps' fans, a meager letsgocaps chant the first minute now you can hear a pin drop.

The Hebrew Hammer said...

The first period was almost a carbon copy of yesterday's game.

Rachel, looking forward to some Staal stats this season.

...and what's with that Errey comment?

something like...

I want your butt right in front of his nose.

rachel said...

Karri, I am, too. Errey's comment was a little creepy ;)

Pitthockey, christensen is scratched.

Barrasso35 said...

PittHockey said...

LOUD Fleury chants in DC. Classic.

Solid game by MAF. Just what we all needed.

PENS WIN!

Steve In Denver said...

Great "Fleury, Fleury" chants coming across the Washington telecast!! Great game for him...he needed it.

BluffTalk said...

  Booyah. Pens win.

William of Loxley said...

Here is California we had to deal with the Washington telecast which was god awful.

why did that guy sound like Dan Akroyd?

Go Pens!

The Hebrew Hammer said...

If you weren't close to having a heart attack those last six minutes, you just don't know what hockey is all about. What a fucking game, it looks like a real rivalry might actually re-emerge with us and them.

Players of the game.

3. Johnson-kept the Caps in it the whole way on some great chances.

2. Eaton-He might have more saves than Fleury this year, he's playing better than he did before he got injured last year. He's outstanding.

1. MAF-Maybe we shouldn't trade him huh?

Ashley said...

glad to see MAF have a good game. always nice when the crowd chants your name, and it's not even a home game.

I saw the Laraque/Brashear fight on HNIC. I'm surprised the whole arena didn't cave in, but then again, only a GR fight could do that.

Just finished watching the Leafs/'Hawks game. Leafs lose 6-4, after blowing a 3-1 lead. Their D is still shitty, and it'll be nice to cream them on Thursday. Little Ruutu got the empty-netter, just to twist the knife in the sides of Leafers everywhere. One guy was sitting behind Raycroft, eating pizza and just glaring at him. The only thing more deadly would've been GR glaring at Raycroft.

PittHockey said...

I wasn't expecting the score to be that low.

Props to MAF.

BluffTalk said...

& nbsp;Yeah, I watched the Caps telecast too on Center Ice. (I live in Utica, NY.) How 'bout Dan Akroyd the announcer?

Go Pens.

Great Fleury chant outta the Pens faithful in Wash. too.

Booyah again.

CG said...

It Finally Happened!!!

With just under 6 min left in the third, Mark Recchi showed up for a shift...solid play in the o-zone, and great diving poke check at the other end.

I can't believe I just typed that.

Great game by MAF! GO PENS!

pitthockey, no luck on those pics

No.1 Keeper! said...

Dear World,

Suck it!

I can't help but think of Boy George every time I hear the name Boyd Gordon.

snoopyjode said...

woooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

just let me shout out a big "fuck you!!!" to the jackasses that cheered when they thought sid got hurt.

Anonymous said...

Uh, yeah - we weren't cheering because we thought he got hurt. We were actually laughing...because it was hilarious. If Ovie had faceplanted like that you would have laughed too - hell, I would have laughed at him. Funny is funny.

And is our attendance the best thing you've got? Seriously? Even we make fun of our low attendance. It's DC - there are tons of Pittsburgh ex-pats lurking here and the majority of locals just don't get hockey unless the Caps are winning. I don't remember the Igloo being so packed back in the years leading up to the lockout. You know, when the Pens sucked just as bad as the Caps? Remember?

Come up with some better insults next time. The rivalry looks to be reborn and we Caps fans welcome some friendly trash talk - and if you don't start fights in our arena we'll be glad to share a laugh and a beer with you after the game, too.
