GameDay (57) -- Bruins @ Pens



[ Marcie Warner dominates with this pic ]



7:30

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


[ Mark Eck ]

The last time the Pens played the Bruins?
Gary Roberts had 2 goals ina 3-1 win.

The game before that in Boston?
The Pens win 5-4 in the shootout.

Bing dropped the gloves with Andrew Ference.
And it was Ty Conklin's first start...and first win.

So long ago that it makes your balls hurt.

Look out. They're dropping the puck on hockey news.

Go Pens.

WILSMITH -- We are banking on the notion that Charlie is some obscure European model who has no clue what's going on.

We have exhausted hours searching for the man, but to no avail.

We found his picture on a website promoting pheromone scents for gay men, so it's definitely not defamation or anything.

As far as using an image on a shirt that bears a coincidental resemblance to him, it is what it is.

Canaan gets an honorary Human of the Week award for setting me up with a computer until funds can be gathered for a new one.

Fake Pensblog items? WTF? It's like those "Pittsburgh Hockey 87" sweatshirts for sale on the strip.

Who would buy that?

Commit to the Charlie.

LET'S GO PENS!

Andrew said...

This "Pens Blog" confuses and infuriates me. Also infuriating is the IM soccer game I'm playing tonight, and not watching this game. DAMN.

GO PENS. Also, that's a solid picture

Cdubbs said...

ok the lightning were sold to a group...does this mean the franchise could move?

Anyone else having a problem with not getting anything on FSN today?

Staff - You guys should really start repping GameDayChat more. It sure was good times last year!

Hip said...

Game is on Yahoo for any other posers like me that don't live in FSN Pittsburgh territory.

Excellentblog.

Interesting stuff as the deadline is now less than two weeks away or so...

1. Bob McKenzie says Tampa is most definitely trying to trade Vinny Prospal. Prospal took a shot at Tortorella in a post-game interview the other night, complaining about Tortorella not playing him with LeCavalier (which is French for "The Cavalier") and San Louie. Said post-game rant was not reportedly well-received by Tortorella.

("Most definitely?" Is that proper grammer? Can we ask someone? Eric Dickerson, what do you think? "Yesmosdefinitely!"

2. Brian Burke is reportedly willing to deal the picks the Ducks were to receive for losing Dustin Penner to that offer sheet last summer. One of those picks is a first-rounder that is lining up to be a potential lottery pick. Kevin Lowe, the Atlanta Thrashers thank you. This now probably makes the Ducks the frontrunner to land Marian Hossa, and that lottery pick may be moved in the deal.

3. Buccigross brought up an interesting point when it comes to Brian Campbell. Kimmo Timmonen got six years, $37.8-million from Philly. He's 33 next month, so they'll be paying him until he's almost 40. Rafalski got five years, $30 million from Detroit and he'll be 35 when the season starts next year. They'll, too, be paying him when he's 39. Campbell is 28 going on 29 in May. Dude is going to cash in this summer; Buccigross estimates to the tune of eight years, $50 million.

Think about that the next time you want to complain about Gonchar and Whitney; those guys are steals at their current salaries.

what the fuck is going on here, im watching on the nhl scoresheet :(

Ashley said...

okay, i hate to bring up this jerk, but i was wondering if anyone else has received a message from jmmul1? I got a 'nice' little e-mail with a video attachment.

His Stinky Jersey

justincredibleh said...

FUCK

Flyer Hater said...

We look hungover tonight, no passion at all. Georges Laraque and Sergei Gonchar looked especially lethargic and it resulted in two Boston goals. This is one game where Therrien can equate bad play to lack of effort.

A HD signal would be nice when it's fucking advertised.

Gary Roberts would shit on his new jersey

Stoosh said...

ASH - Having a hard time getting onto Youtube right now, but I don't think I got anything from that tool. I only got about 20 seconds into his clip...right after the "lynch Laraque" comment, I think.

Again, nothing like that 100% certified, Grade A Philadelphia class.

Ashley said...

stoosh - yeah, he was rambling on about "Jagr bombs" or something and showed a clip on his computer...it was all kind of incoherent. Makes me think of a real loose cannon...someone who would make me nervous.

Ashley said...

I was just wondering if I was the only 'lucky' person to get an e-mail from him, or if he sent them out to a bunch of people.

Maybe it's just because they're playin so bad but is it me or are Steiggy and Errey particularly annoying tonight. Chara is 6'9". He has a longer stick than everyone else. Get over it

justincredibleh said...

But does he have a longer reach than Staal?

Better chance of Chinese Democracy in the next week than the Pens coming back in this one.

Stoosh said...

MALKINIAN - Agreed. Steigerwald is particularly grating tonight.

This could just be one of "those" games.

Hip said...

Dudes - there's a lot of time left.
Especially for this team.

Alwaysbelieveblog.

Stoosh said...

HIP - Not worried...it just has that strange feeling about it tonight. We looked like crap for two periods against the Canes a couple weekends ago and then came out like gangbusters in the third.

Hip said...

PS Ashley - good god. I've always thought we need more psychiatric services in this country. Here is proof.

malkinian said...

stoosh: i think you're right.

hip: damn right!

Anonymous said...

What the fuck! When will they understand that 7 d-men does not work! Why fuck up the lines and d-pairings when we're playing well!? A total shit game! FUCK!

Flyer Hater said...

Stoosh, Steigerwald is particularly grating every night. I've never come out of a game saying he was really good in the booth.

Stoosh said...

ASH - I don't think he sent one to me, although Youtube seems to be a little dysfunctional tonight.

I hope you're not the only one he sent it to...that kid definitely has the whole "creepy" thing going on.

It's hysterical (or pathetic, depending on how you look at it)...you can tell how worked up he gets himself because his voice kind of cracks right around the time when he goes, "I swear to God!" He almost talks himself out of breath.

Nice Briere jersey, too.

Flyer Hater said...

It seems like Conklin is battling the puck now. He just doesn't look comfortable in net anymore. I can't wait to see Fleury up here again.

PS. We can't let that midget Tim Thomas get a shutout against us, LETS GO PENS!!

Jonny V said...

I could be mistaken, but that page that he held up in the youtube clip looked "sticky." You guys don't suppose? Nah...

Stoosh said...

ASH - My bad...it's after the Laraque comment that he has to pause and collect himself.

Still pathetic.

And what's a "Yaka Bomb"? Something Charlie did to him?

malkinian said...

How many chances does EC want tonite???? Put him on Crosby's line when he comes back and Sid might off himself outta frustration

justincredibleh said...

get the fuck up christensen, you're playing terrible tonight.

this is awful.

John Fedko was named Jagoff of the Week on the Junker and Crow radio sports show on 1250 ESPN today, 2/13/2008. Apparently, he even called into the show live to defend himself. Here is a link from 1250 ESPN: http://stations.espn.go.com/stations/espnradio1250/show?showId=jc

February 13, John Fedko, WPXI Channel 11's Lead Sports Anchor. Despite defending his opinion on the air, Fedko was voted JagOff of the Week for claiming that Alex Ovechkin, Ilya Kovalchuk, and the Penguins' own Evgeni Malkin are all better players than Sidney Crosby.

I want to punch someone or something right now, hard.

whatev. at least thomas didnt get a shutout.

Mike Georger said...

wasnt malone the one who did the same thing against the flyers two games ago when we had an empty net? unacceptable

and man christensen, you deserve to sit a game for this game, sorry bout it

Anonymous said...

If we manage to tie the game up late, those two saves by Conklin are remembered for a long time. Unreal

Anonymous said...

Sid is going with the team to Carolina...not gonna play but still encouraging

Flyer Hater said...

Let's please not overreact and throw a hissyfit over this loss. Just one of those games. I expected a flat performance after the big win against Philly and that's what we got unfortunately. We still have a division lead and took 3 out of 4 on this homestand. On to Carolina baby!

Stoosh said...

Not going to get upset over this one, but boy, it's tough to not be miffed at Christensen for passing up that shot on the PP late in the game. I know what he was trying to do, but that's an instance where he needs to recognize the situation they're in and just let it rip. If that was early in the game, fine. But with such little time left in the game, I would've much rather seen him just have the shot.

Whatev. Refocus for the Canes tomorrow.

Flyer Hater said...

Stoosh, Errey said right after that happened that the trailing defenseman (I think Whitney) might have been yelling for Christensen to drop it back to him. Now he's supposed to be a goal scorer right? All alone coming down the slot, do you think Ovechkin, Kovalchuk, etc. would have enen thought pass there? Let's hope this game doesn't rattle him, because he's worthless if he doesn't have confidence.

justincredibleh said...

it wasn't just that one pass by christensen. he played awful all game. missed a couple open nets. taffe is due. i like him, talbot and staal on the same line.

Memo to Shero; WE NEED A GOAL SCORING WINGER!!!!!!!

time to break out the hanging elmo?

Anonymous said...

You knew it was going to break at some point. Tough loss, but time to move on.

Flyer Hater said...

Fleury with 30 saves on 31 shots

Ashley said...

Flyer Hater - That's nice to hear about Fleury!

Jonny V said...

Hanging Elmo? Are you F@%*ing kidding me? It was a one goal loss to the Bruins. Hanging Elmo is reserved for losing streaks that will make you hate everything about life. Even those little monkeys that ride on dogs like rodeo cowboys.

Lady Jaye said...

Oh well! We can't win them all! Seriously, do we really think they'd win EVERY game from here until the end of the year? The team will have games like these... but not too many I hope!

Refocus for Carolina.

EmDubs said...

The boys just had a 3 game winning streak. Lets cut them some slack.

ShameFaced said...

My mama said there would be games like this.

Beat Carolina!
Go Pens!

Is it just me or did Bob say "Steigy" about 99,000 times tonight

seeker said...

Fake TPB tee shirts? That's THE last straw....I've completely given-up on humanity now.

Da Pens:

Kind of glad now that I didn't fight the crappy roads and re-routed traffic patterns to see that one in person. I'd have preferred an emergency root canal if I had my choice.
