GameDay (2.3) -- Pens @ Rangers


[ Wilsmith ]



7:00

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::


[ Nate B. ] -------------------- [ Pav ]
Do you hear that rumbling? That's a Photoshop Expo on the way.

Here we go.
We find out tonight whether this is a series or a speedbump.

It's a Game 7 for the Rangers.
Steve Avery will feel at home in MSG.
The Rangers will come out smokin'.

And as many astute Pens fans have already said,
the Rangers may be a little desperate and want to come out with guns blazing in front of the MSG crowd.

It'll be up to the Pens to stick to their own gameplan
and take advantage of the mistakes, because the opportunities will be there.

And let's not forget:



The return of Steiggy, Errey, and Potash.
Maybe their swan song for the 2007-08 season.

This is Mike Ozanian.
Never heard of him? Join the club.

If the smugness permeating from that picture isn't enough to make you punch yourself,
he spewed an unreal amount of garbage on the Forbes.com webshite.

We had to post the entire article because it is just too great.

Who is the greatest diver of all-time? Greg Louganis? Any member of Italy’s last World Cup soccer team? My vote goes to Sidney Crosby, the young superstar of the Pittsburgh Penguins who has tallied 294 points in his first 213 National Hockey League games. He flops, he falls, he scores! Crosby, who is an awesome skater, playmaker and shooter, might be the most complete player in the league. But, amazingly, the 21 year old loses all sense of coordination any time an opposing player gets within five feet of him.

Crosby’s dive in game one of the Eastern Conference semifinal series against the New York Rangers when Martin Straka barely touched him would have him a unanimous 10 in the Olympics. It had great timing (only minutes remained in regulation) and was choreographed beautifully (eloquent head first slide). On television the hockey pundits were quick to point out that, technically, Straka did interfere with Crosby. PLEASE! I know the NHL is desperately seeking its next Gretzkey. But does the Versus network actually believe its coverage does not lose credibility when former hockey players Brian Engblom and Keith Jones ignore reality? Since when are playoff games decided by acting ability?

The only analyst who got this call right was MSG analyst Stan Fischler, who has never been one to be intimidated by the league’s political correctness squad. Fischler correctly pointed out that for greatly embellishing the supposed foul Crosby should have been giving two minutes for diving—even if Straka did commit interference.

When the referees do not call the other team for being in the same area of the ice as Crosby, Mr. Penguin whines like a 12 year girl old shut out of a Hannah Montana concert. Up next: a guest appearance on Oprah. Shame on NHL commissioner Gary Bettman for allowing this sham to ruin the game and, if the center iceman’s academy award winning performances continue, Crosby’s legacy.


If you were counting factual errors, your abacus probably broke.
The dude can't even spell GRETZKY.
Jesus.

Do it

We approached Hacksaw early on Tuesday morning and asked him if he was ready to go.
He adamantly refused to get the nod.

" I WANT GAME FOUR, DICKS "


If you're at all concerned with this pick,
find solace in the fact that we're headed into New York City.

Does anyone know when the puck will actually drop? I might miss the anthems, but I might be able to get out of here and be home for the drop.

We haven't held a lead in MSG this year at any point in the game.

Whistler said...

Ladies and Gentlemen,

As we prepare for the upcoming game, let us pray..

Our Roberts, who art in Pittsburgh, Gary be thy name.
The Playoffs come, The cup be won,
to Pittsburgh in the Arena called Mellon.

Give us this day our daily Pensblog
and forgive us our reporters as we job those who job against us
And lead us not into Philly, But deliver us from the Rangers,
For thine is the Crosby, and the Malkin, and the Fleury for ever and ever.

AMEN!

Now, LET'S GO PENS!!!!

Eric K said...

@ FH, my bad man. it was my first first. get faster, joke.


haha.

the JJ interview on Sportsbeat was brutal. Jagr claims that he didnt really want to be traded, he just said that so the front office would "come up with the money." what money? there was no money to come up with. he woulda been better off buying Patrick some scratch off lottery tickets instead of making a statement like he did.

apparently in the Czech Republic, they can grow $ on trees.

Flyer Hater said...

eric k,

Mike Georger said...

MEIN FUHRER!

killer job by his teammates stopping him from shaving that stache in that way. wow.

Amen, Whistler.

Bob Errey's waterproofing commercial is awesome.

Few minutes.

That shot of MSG looks like a toilet.

If it looks like a toilet and smells like a toilet, then I guess it's a toilet.

F the Rangers! Looking forward to Photoshopblog soon

I've missed Steiggy and Bob. And Dan the Man Potash, of course.

JAGR IS A DIVER! what a little p*ssy!!

M. Vanderlasser said...

Hey, I just got back from feeding my chinchilla. Has anything happened in the game yet?

adam vacancy said...

JAGS IS PIST

JYo said...

Looks like the crying is working to get a diving call though. It may have been a dive, but you know it was called because of all of the whining. Bad sign if the refs are being influenced by whining and the home crowd.

dhudzin said...

Oh God, here we go Edzo...

Carroll said...

M. Staal nice hit on your baby bro.

JYo said...

66 buries it Malkin!

adam vacancy said...

@ m vanderlasser- game update: Jagr is in the manic phase of his bipolar disorder and, oh yeah, Hossa fulfilled part of his tPB destiny.

Geno caught Hossa-itis

adam vacancy said...

whitney tryin to get a piece of jagr = GOLD....

ps..i think its a goal

JYo said...

Jagr is the biggest crybaby I have seen in recent memory.

Jawsh said...

If they call that a no goal, rags fans' tears will fill the ohio

Johnny Wrath said...

If Jagr and Malkin fought proper, I'd give up drinking.

JYo said...

Didn't the NHL say a guy in the crease means no goal. Even if the net wasn't off, where was Jagr???

chris e said...

shit....

JYo said...

Rags fans lose all right to cry about anything in this series after the high stick goal and this one.

AdamSocial said...

Lame city.

Apparently goaltender interference isn't a penalty.

Mike Georger said...

worst goal chant ever

this officiating is fucking awful

chris e said...

HCMT....aweful suit tonight...

Dr. Turkleton said...

IF THAT'S RULED A GOAL...BUTTMAN, THE NHL & THE WHOLE WORLD WANT THE RANGERS™ TO WIN THE CUP. CONSPIRACY. CONSPIRACY. CONSPIRACY. [/acting like a rags fan]

dhudzin said...

I am pulling my hair out listening to Edzo suck Jagr's dick. Fuck you Edzo!

Sooska said...

Well, I say send BGL into His Majesty.

JYo said...

Agree dhudzin. I can't stand Edzo though. It seems like every time the Pens are on VS, he is calling the game and he always seems like he is still bitter that he got fired. Somehow he doesn't realize he was only there to be a lap dog for 66. Suck it Edzo, you are no HCMT.

Dr. Turkleton said...

bubba hollweg shoulda been in the box serving a 2 minute charging penalty, IMHO.

meh. they'll get it back.





[Hossa]

eileenover said...

These officials make me want to vomit. I guess they changed their minds and allow players to go in the goalie's crease now. Fucking ridiculous.

barraqudie said...

I thought that the puck was on top of Fleury and not over the line until the net went off, no? My stupid choppy HD signal makes it hard to tell.

p.s. hi, I'm a lurker who's been pulling for you guys (my childhood team's long gone). Don't get me started on the ways I think the Rangers suck (and I didn't hate them before these playoffs!)

Scott Gomez just used 6 hockey cliches during that interview. That has to scare you if you're a NYR fan.

No doubt they are STUNNED

Flyer Hater said...

That's the difference between us and the Rags. We get jobbed on a goal and respond with 2 quick goals that completely demoralizes them. They get jobbed and Jagr shaves his pubes and listens to Boy George records.


HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

M. Vanderlasser said...

Wow, that's about the best first period we could have hoped for.

Amazing.

I shat myself one-two-three times!

Potash is interviewing BGL. He is one happy hockey player - and he just kissed Potash!!!

This is going to be a great game!

adam vacancy said...

BGL KISSES POTASH!!!

eileenover said...

I love this team more than life.

Eric K said...

rumor has it BGL borrowed Roberts' shampoo in the shower after practice yesterday. Today, his life has changed forever.

Unreal period. Gotta keep it goin. Orpik needs to drop Jagr 4 or 5 more times.

Unreal on the guaranteeblog.

HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOssa.

Pensgirl said...

Holy shit, people!

Things I couldn't say while driving home:

1. Ignore the Forbes jackass. The irrelevant blowhards who write for them know as much about hockey as they do about having sex with women. They may as well just call it Fucktard Monthly.

2. HOOOOOOOOOO! Damn, there wasn't even any suspense on the guarantee! (Hey boys, can you guarantee that I win the next Mega Millions?)

Damn, now I have to go back and read all these comments during the rest of the INT.

Matt in N.C. said...

@sooska

Don't forget the N.C.!

Dr. Turkleton said...

@sooska

BGL was out there lookin' for Jags:
realized he was in the box, so he figured he'd try scoring a goal.

YoWzA!

any update on the Pirates v. Mets?[/jokeblog]

1 more goal, and the series is over.

Pensgirl said...

Oh, and also...since I am not in Pittsburgh, I am getting the Utterly Craptastic Versus Broadcast, which FROZE juuuuust long enough to miss the Laraque goal. Literally, the puck goes in the corner...and then like 15 seconds later they're showing Weeping Tom Renney and talking about how BGL put one home.

Fucking Versus.

Flyer Hater said...

Is Sean Avery playing?

slowcountry21 said...

Pensgirl, I'd take the Utterly Craptastic Versus Broadcast over the Nonexistent Versus Because Of Ridiculous And Completely Nonsensical Blackout Rules Broadcast right about now.

I really hope they win the Cup for guys like him. It's a guarantee Malkin, Crosby, and Staal will win Cups in their careers. BGL and Ruutu are UFAs after this season, and I would love to see them win a Cup with this team because it might not happen again for them. This team is unbelievable.

smitty said...

@ Flyer Hater

No! He's lying face down @ bottom of MSG!

JYo said...

@eileenover: The young guys may not appreciate how hard it is yet, but its no guarantee they win one just because they are good. Plenty of great players in various sports don't have rings when they retire. Every single guy on this team deserves a ring!

JYo said...

I have VS and had a freeze earlier when there was basically no action, but no problem at all on the BGL goal. Weird!

TheNWChica said...

@sooska: The online feed from the Ceeb through RagstoRiches has been behaving pretty okay. And you also get the fabulous Jim Hughson instead of frelling Edzo.

Pensgirl said...

One more catchupblog: on the Rags' goal, Malone and Sykora stupidly shoved Jagr further into the crease and knocked him into Fleury. They came in from the right and front and they should have come in from the left to shove him away from the net. That's why no goalie interference was called.

georges3434 said...

Awesome game so far
also Sooska add nc to your list in acid queen country from indiana,pa

JYo said...

Hall on the PKforecheckblog. Nice work.

eileenover said...

@ jyo

Let me put it this way: I would be extremely surprised if they didn't win Cups. And I agree that all those guys deserve to win.

JYo said...

Refs trying to get the Rags back into the game. CONSPIRACY!!!

JYo said...

BTW, did the fans leave at the first intermission. Its pretty quiet in there.

Sooska said...

gracias theNWchica! it us better.

is it me or is Jagr wearing yellow skate laces?

Jawsh said...

MAF IS A MADMAN

Sooska said...

"us" is "is" in my last post.

JYo said...

eileenover, the same could have been said of people like Ray Borque early in his career, and it took a late career trade to get him one. A good example from the NFL is Marino, who got to the big game early, lost it, and never got back. Take nothing for granted.

Jawsh said...

Let's see how many times we can shoot our foot until it bleeds...

TheNWChica said...

@sooska: De nada!


WTF is going on with the parade to the box!? This is not how to hold onto a lead boys! *sporks*

eileenover said...

USS Gill was completely amazing on that play.

Koz said...

!@#$%^&*DDDDFYDAYA VHDAU USS GILL DHGU&F H&&A^^^^$%^$

Pensgirl said...

Sooska, the yellow laces are favored by many European players. Someone did a story on it early in the season. I believe Ovechkin also wears them. I am thrilled that none of our players do. They're horridly ugly anyway, but they look especially bad with the Rags' unis.

October 17thblog with these penalties. Fuckin' A.

JYo said...

You can hear all the jobbers in their crowd yelling "SHOOT" on the PP! Priceless.

dhudzin said...

And then the USS Hal Gill performed evasive manuevers...

bbbbrian said...

The Douche Rags can suck a dick about preferential treatment a penaties go after that series.

mdpensfan said...

two five on threes killed... when you can't score on two five on threes in a row, you can't whine about diving ruining the game for you.

ok thanks.

POINT.BLANK.

JYo said...

Apparently the Rags players are in on the league-wide conspiracy to get the Pens and Sid a Cup. How else do you blow that much PP time, including two 5-on-3s??? CONSPIRACY!!!

Matt in N.C. said...

killing two five on three's = solid

I think the ref's are trying to give the game to the RAGS

M. Vanderlasser said...

Unbelievable, unbelievable, unbelieveable PK.

Hey, and the Rangers fans were booing even when #87 was off the ice!

Dr. Turkleton said...

Scuds with F.I.V.E. blocked shots up to now....

A Man amongst boys tonight.

barraqudie said...

I think that was the worst series of power plays I've ever seen. And I follow the $%&*ing Leafs.

I hate to use the "they don't have the swagger" cliche, but could the Rangers' age be catching up to them? They seem to have no sense of urgency.

Matt Gajtka said...

Talk about potential turning points in a series...oh my. My heart stopped and I've never wanted a commercial break so badly.

Flyer Hater said...

That last sequence of penalty kills will be narrated by Earl Mann one day.

Dr. Turkleton said...

Bibbs:
"These stats I'm looking at right now are just garbage!"....

-describing the Pens with only 4 blocked shots when he got the stat sheet.

Koz said...

Drury injured celebrating a non-goal? Classic!

JYo said...

It seems like the Pens keep track of when the TV timeouts are and use it to their advantage. I don't know if the players on ice are aware, but they have had a few TV breaks at opportune times in the last couple of games. If they do it on purpose, good for them.

TheNWChica said...

GAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

Jawsh said...

eileenover said...

SHIT

Alright, time for another Pens goal to settle things down.
