Oh, and for the female bloggers and Charlie....Steve was dressed in a nice light grey suit.

GARY!!!

TheNWChica said...

The Ceeb says that word is is that Homer will not even take the warm up; but I won't believe it until the puck drops.

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 Red Wings,
For thine is the Crosby, and the Malkin, and the Fleury for ever and ever.

AMEN!

Now, LET'S GO PENS!!!!

Quingo77 said...

Lets do it..............

Time for the pregame ritual....chug a dirty pabst blue ribbon!


GO Pens

*Predictionblog - sykora, malkin, and hossa will all get on the score sheet tonight

TheNWChica said...

Hey Carroll...is it me or is it freaking loud in there behind the guys?

M. Vanderlasser said...

Amen, Whistler.

Let's do this thang.

Rex Guildo, start warming up...

Thanks, Potash.

PittHockey said...

HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Koz said...

Holmstrom is not on the ice for practice.

Live from B15

JYo said...

Lets Go Pens!!!

HOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

M. Vanderlasser said...

Yep:

"The big news is that Wings' forward Tomas Holmstrom did not take the pre-game skate and will not play in Game 4. Holmstrom suffered a reported hamstring injury in Game 3 after being dumped by Penguins' defenceman Brooks Orpik. He will be replaced in the lineup by Darren McCarty who will skate on the fourth line. Dan Cleary will take Holmstrom's spot on the top line."

Carroll said...

chica - it's not you. It is loud in there!!

Party of Ruutu said...

@chica- Was Steve wearing a real shirt under the grey suit?



I totally almost pushed for that extra 15 minutes of sleep. What an almost mistake.




GO PENS!

Carroll said...

gotta love when people inside Mellon are letting people in cblog know the players status.

Thanks Koz - live from B15.

CBC - the most powerful men in the NHL - Bettman and Crosby (I think that's in the wrong order).

TheNWChica said...

@PoRuuts: Yes, it was a real shirt. Carroll can correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe it was a white dress shirt and I think a dark tie.

TheNWChica said...

Oh my eyes! Why is Ron talking to Count Chocula??? Ewwww! Little maggot!

Carroll said...

chica - I missed the players entering because I turned in to the Detroit channel for a second to see their biased report.

Now back on CBC.

Party of Ruutu said...

@chica- Thanks. Sounds good.


LET'S GO PENS!!!!!!!!

Carroll said...

he does look like count chocula.

Jimmy Hugs said...

I see a confused dead wings fan in the bar. He's wearing a wangs jersey and a crapitols hat.

Joose said...

GET SOME!

LET'S GO PENS!

RUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!

Sooska said...

@chica - I am guessing Steve wore that same gray suit down to his gutchies for Game 3.

TheNWChica said...

Gutchies?

@sooka: I think Steve has like 3 suits, 4 shirts and probably 2 pairs of dress shoes.

sexymexyjeffy said...

40th


Go Pens

TheNWChica said...

Ron...get this buttmonkey off my screen!

Sooska said...

@ chica - underwear

Carroll said...

Gutchies?
does that mean undies?

My guess Sooska - you are probably correct.

somechic said...

DO IT!

TheNWChica said...

Ahhh...another thing I learned today on Cblog! Yay!

smitty said...

Generally not a fan of sequels,but, I'd give 2 thumbs up for...


"The SHIFT part2"



GO PENS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Carroll said...

Gary B - Ron don't try to finish your question,this is my answer no matter what you are saying.

all I hear is blah blah blah Canada blah blah blah...

Carroll said...

smitty _ i would LOVE the see "the Shift pt 2".

Sooska said...

@ chica- my husband and his sibs all said that. I never heard it until I met him.

I bet Steve tosses out any clothing he wears if he wore it to a loss. GONE. GARBAGE. or burned. in a ritual.

TheNWChica said...

Go away nao Chocula!

chris e said...

Let's do this shit!

bell said...

did the pensblog see that paradeblog turd threatens to sue them? what a joke.


GO PENS!

TheNWChica said...

Sooska- I would agree with that.

I think they're are two separate hampers in his bathroom....Keep and Save.

Carroll said...

NBC just paid respect to Luc Bourdon.

Sooska said...

It's a Hockey Night in Pittsburgh!

It was raining and blowing with dark clouds flying by, and then the sun came out.

Pensgirl said...

My gameday doesn't start 'til I read the Chris E. post. I'm ready to go now!

sexymexyjeffy said...

bout time, i was wondering when chris e was gonna come in with that


lets fucking do this



[Hacksaw]

Dubs said...

me nerves is tinglin ...

I hope Datsuck gets jacked tonight

Party of Ruutu said...

Maybe that's why he only has 3 suits.

TheNWChica said...

Thanks Carroll...I didn't have that up.

Sooska said...

@ chica- Steve might be the guy who buys 50 of the same black tee shirt casue it's what he likes and only what he wears.

GAWDGary! The Burgh looked great!

Dubs said...

Milbury always looks like he needs to take a crap

Crudeblog

Carroll said...

whistler - check
chris e - check

ready to go! Let's Go Pens!!!!!!!!

I think Don Cherry only has 3 suits, I've seen this was already.

Party of Ruutu said...

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Pensgirl said...

Milbury finally earns his paycheck calling that "the virtuoso shift by Brooks Orpik."

TheNWChica said...

CherrySuitblog:

The Gerber daisy job has returned...and I really really want that hand puppet he has!

And Sooska: He might be like my dad...he has a weird body type so when my mom finds something that fits, she buys one of every color for him.

Carroll said...

^^^ was = one

Sooska said...

Malkin shirt - on
WWGRD wristband - on

GO PENS GO!!!

Sooska said...

@ chica- Sid's every color is black and gray. hee

Carroll said...

timbits commercial - more Steve - now things are right in the world.

Now I need a RBK edge, gatorade and then Chica's favourite Enterprise commercial.

Kat said...

Gah, I can't sit still...I just downed an entire bottle of Fiji water. Goingtohavetopeeeverytenminutesblog.

TheNWChica said...

LOL For sure Sooska!

TheNWChica said...

Hey carroll...don't forget the horny old men!

Sooska said...

Steve! Sid! Bing! which one is starting?

TheNWChica said...

Holy shit it is so loud...I likes it!

Sooska said...

no momemt of silence or Jimerson on NBC

AdamSocial said...

CALIFORNIA SOUL!!!!!!!!!!!!

Party of Ruutu said...

California Soul!

The Seeker said...

Pittsburgh Penguins = SHOCK & AWE!



Let's GO Pens!

TheNWChica said...

Doood...I am so proud of the fans during that moment. Thank you!

Sooska said...

That was so cool- the flag used tonight flew in Afghanistan on March 29 in honor of the PIttsburgh Penguins. got it on the radio - not on NBC

The Seeker said...

Holmstrom scratched due to tooth decay from eating too much candy

Sooska said...

aw seeker- you make me laugh. :)

Carroll said...

sooska - that is why CBC is much beeter then NBC. We got both.

Carroll said...

my spelling is off tonight, sorry cblog.
beeter=better

TheNWChica said...

All hail the Ceeb!

Sooska said...

@ carroll- I know - when I have to watch online I try to catch the Ceeb. they know what they are doing and show all the good side stuff.

Scuds hurt?

Dubs said...

man the Dings look intense

Stoosh said...

Said it last game so it bears repeating.

No need for bagpipes.

No need to turn to Sir William Wallace or Capt. Stephen Hiller.

Every player in that Penguins locker room knows what a Penguins win tonight does. The seed of doubt was planted in the heads of the Red Wings in Game Three. Tonight, we have a chance to grow that seed of doubt in their minds. Tonight we have a chance to take back the momentum and make this a three-game series.

Red said it best...

Get busy livin', or get busy dyin'.

Let's do this shit.

LET'S
GO
PENS

This thing pulls even tonight.

Carroll said...

let's go PP!!

Sooska said...

Jaws baby! turkey on the table.

Pensgirl said...

HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Carroll said...

HHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOSSSSSSSSSSSSSAAAAAAAA

Dubs said...

HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Sooska said...

HOOOOOOOOOOOOOSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

TheNWChica said...

Fiesta Mexicana!!!!

AdamSocial said...

HOOOOOOOOOOOOSAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Party of Ruutu said...

HOSSA! HOSSA! HOSSA!

PittHockey said...

HOOOOOOOSSSAAAAAAAAA!

M. Vanderlasser said...

FIRE UP THE REX GUILDO, BABY!!!!

HOOOOOOSSSSSSSSSSSSAAAA!!!

TheNWChica said...

and I think an assist to Lord Gary too! HOSSA!

Sooska said...

That was amazing.

TheNWChica said...

I was wrong...Sarge and Bing

Dubs said...

luvin the pen's intensity!!!

TheNWChica said...

I don't know about y'all, but I think there is a difference w/o Homer and his fat ass in front of the net.

Sooska said...

Hossa be on fire?

Chubs said...

This sucks- the NBC feed has been messed up here (Erie) since the winter (it's like watching scrambled porn- not that I'd know- on ice) and I can't get the Gore feeds to work well.

Whatev...can I get some bad synth music with this at least?

Dubs said...

BS CALL!

Party of Ruutu said...

Did Elroy duck with that Hossa crossbar shot? Haha goalies aren't supposed to duck.

Carroll said...

come on PK!

Dubs said...

MALONE!

TheNWChica said...

Get 'em Bugsy!

Sooska said...

@ party - Osgood totally ducked on that Hossa shot.

Sooska said...

damn.

AdamSocial said...

fuck.

TheNWChica said...

Fuck

Carroll said...

crap! - goal as soon as the penalty ends.

Sooska said...

Sarge screened MAF.

Dubs said...

hey look! Ozdouche dived!

Sooska said...

Mike told Osgood no dice on the whining.

TheNWChica said...

That's alright....they'll buckle down and hopefully Steve and Eugene will get one in there tonight.

Sooska said...

Actually Mike didn't tell Osgood. Mike said the ref told Osgood.

Party of Ruutu said...

Apparently Pens fans called Helm a retard and some girl now wants all Pens fans to die.

Sooska said...

Jaws. turkey on the table.

Carroll said...

PP - Steve/Eugene you can do it!!

TheNWChica said...

Fuck you Brian!

Dubs said...

hall comin alive!

Sooska said...

they have to take it to Osgood.

Sooska said...

that was horrible.

TheNWChica said...

SHOOT IT! FUCK!

Sooska said...

chica- that PP stunk. too much holding and passing and not enough shooting.

JYo said...

Not to sound like a Yinzer, but they need to shoot the puck whenever they have a chance. Didn't they learn in the first two games you can't wait for perfect shots against this team? Get some pucks on the net fellas.

Party of Ruutu said...

Ruutu had a little conference in back with the Hot Wing.

TheNWChica said...

I hate that...a couple of my junior boys have that habit too. You're not going to get the perfect shot all the time...just keep shooting!

Pensgirl said...

Jyo I think we all agree on that one. We got a turnover with 20 seconds left on that PP and could have collectively crashed Elroy. Instead they held/passed for the next 25 seconds.

Party of Ruutu said...

I rarely scream "shoot the puck," but I did about 3 times that PP.

Sooska said...

@jyo- thinking the same. I don't like this look right now. too reminiscent of Game 1 in some respects. 66 buries those chances.

Dubs said...

Heinekin makes me want to yak

Kat said...

I'm over this damn Heineken commercial...

Sooska said...

BTW this is the Pens 100th game this season and the 66th consecutive sellout.

TheNWChica said...

Is it candy time yet?

Dubs said...

let's go boys

TheNWChica said...

PP needs to get its shit going with this one.

Carroll said...

Maybe they'll shoot on this PP.

Dubs said...

I agree with yinz CRASH THE NET

TheNWChica said...

Oh good....Drapes is in the box.

Sooska said...

@chica-not enough free candy being handed out.
Langer just said this is the same ref duo from Game 1 (I think it was, or 2) when the Pens had 8 penalties called against them Now Dee-twss has 3 called already.

Jaws. turkey on the table. Shoot boys. put it on net.

Kat said...

Ugh weird PP angles strike again...

Dubs said...

Flower is makin me nervous

Sooska said...

GAWD GARY!! what was THAT ??? weird bounce thru the crease.

TheNWChica said...

What is this bullshit?

JYo said...

Nice late hits, turds.

Sooska said...

WTF?

Carroll said...

sid has broken 2 sticks already this game.

Kat said...

What the hell just happened? NBC refuses to keep me updated on what ACTUALLY going on.

Sooska said...

DIVING???WTF??? are you kidding me? i suppose Ruuts did too.

Party of Ruutu said...

What?!

JYo said...

Instead of showing this crap that went down, VS, er NBC, shows a sped up iso of Sid. WTF???

TheNWChica said...

Okay...Max does NOT dive!

TheNWChica said...

Where is Brooksie? We need some candy now!

Party of Ruutu said...

Free Candy for everyone!

TheNWChica said...

Never mind. ;P

JYo said...

After all the diving they let the Wings do every game, they call diving on a guy that got hit legitimately after the whistle when he wasn't expecting it.

Carroll said...

I can't believe Max was called for diving.

Free Candy!

Hossa needs to bury that!

Sooska said...

Ahhh Sykie.

Kat said...

ARGH! 2 blown good chances.

JYo said...

They are soooo close to breakaways about every other shift. Do it Pens!

TheNWChica said...

BALLS! Their passes suck!

Sooska said...

carroll- I agree.

Geno and Syko are getting free. I have to think a free flowing game benefits the Pens.

PittHockey said...

refs = suck

TheNWChica said...

Bah...

I'm gonna go get something to drink.

Sooska said...

WWGRD? wow!

Carroll said...

So does cblog think it's a good move to have GR occassionally on the PP instead of Bugsy?

Jimmy Hugs said...

Pierre McGuire looks like a penis

Quingo77 said...

Diving...... it looked like the refs wanted to make an equal up call when their obviously wasn't a need to, the pens have gotten like the last 4 calls their way so the refs needed to look for something the other way


jeffjimmersonjobblog..... how do they show that no talent bitch from detroit the first 2 games but no jeff jimmerson? wtf?

Party of Ruutu said...

I'm still pissed about that diving call. Holy crap, I hope this ref doesn't wreck the flow of the game.

Joose said...

I think Osgood needs to be served a Fuck You Sandwich next period.

Carroll said...

gatorade commercial!! Love it!

Joose said...

....and with a shit-ton of mustard, of course.

Sooska said...

omenblog? Flashdance is showing TVLand.

Sooska said...

ON TVLand. sheesh I'm bad tonight.

Carroll said...

Don Cherry changed his jacket. Baby blue with daisies.

Cherry is blaming Malone for the goal against.

Peter Gahzinia said...

What the hell is up with that horrible camera angle for the power plays? Is the camera up in the nose bleed seats?

Sooska said...

@quingo77- I was wondering the same thing. she must "know" someone.

Dan said...

is it me or is the officiating getting worse and worse every game this series? FREE CANDY

Pensgirl said...

Quingo, I think the anthem difference is that Versucks showed the first two games and these are NBC.

Joose said...

I can't even see the damn puck when that shitty camera angle is used. I don't know what that is all about. Orpik needs to toss some FREE CANDY to whoever rigged that shit.

Sooska said...

@pensgirl- so you are saying versucks does one thing right?

Pensgirl said...

Joose, amen.

Sooska, it appears so.

Party of Ruutu said...

This Luc tribute on CBC is amazing.

Dan said...

dockers commercial is on. one day, i will make a commercial featuring local h "california songs" if you know the lyrics you will understand.

TheNWChica said...

Ate 3 really really hot wings....hope it helps.

michelle said...

@joose
That camera angle is bullshit

I think the wings are looking for free hugs tonight, with all the arm wraps

give 'em candy instead

DO ITTTTTTT

Party of Ruutu said...

haha free hugs...

Dubs said...

I'm not happy with that first ... not a bad period but they should have two at least ...

Sooska said...

@chica- it can't hurt.

Dan said...

@ pensgirl - notice the one guy in the direct tv commercials was the lawyer on arrested development. and ed begley was too, stan sitwell. he couldn't grow any hair. it was a condition.

JYo said...

So does cblog think it's a good move to have GR occassionally on the PP instead of Bugsy?

I think its a great idea. Not to say Bugsy can't handle it, but GR is a very seasoned veteran and can still do the dirty work physically. I think he is handling that role better than Bugsy right now. I actually wouldn't mind seeing him on the top line with Sid and Hossa on occasion as well.
