Winter In The Sun # 46

[Get Busy Livin' Or Get Busy Dyin'. That's Got Damn Right. PENS LOSE.]

[<span class=
3 - 0

And just like that, things changed.

It was a regular mid-January game. Nothing special.
Until about somewhere near 8:00 pm

Sidney Crosby. The boards. Boom.
It's happened about 20 times this season.
It looks like that fall from the Ranger game was a foreshadowing.

Not a whole lot going on.
Bing and Malkin look like they are about to take over the world again, but Holmqvist is stellar.

For some reason, the Lightning were speeding past the Pens D.

But then it happened.

Andre Roy got the puck to the left of Conk. Made an unrealistic pass.
Some guy who means nothing, even to his family, scores a huge road goal. 1-0

For some reason, it feels like that was the first first-period goal Conk has allowed all season.

A little later, though, nothing mattered.


At 7:37 of the first period,
Crosby tries to get around Paul Ranger.

He slides into the boards.
Not really sure what happens. But it just looks bad.

Say one thing about Crosby. He is tough.
As the camera harmlessly pans away, Crosby can be seen trying to skate back to the bench.

He hobbles. Oh man.

He heads to the locker room. Big ups to the usher who helped him off the ice.
Sabu looks stunned.

The next two minutes, and pretty much the rest of the game, are(is?) foggy.
No one knows what's going on.
Marty St. Louis gets two breakaways.
Conkblock tells him to F-off.
The Pens almost score, but the ref loses sight of the puck.

But then Andre Roy shows up again.
He passes to Chris Gratton.

Lady = Stunned.

Conk keeps the Penguins afloat.
But Gonchar boards St. Lajoke.

Pens kill the penalty.
Not a real fun time.



The second starts with the Pens playing a little better.
Therrien had to juggle the lines.

The puck floats near the Lightning bench during their line change...

Too many men.
We'll be honest -- That's kind of a gross picture.
Andre Roy buries one.
Nothing more than a slap in the face.
What a scumbag. 3-0.

The rest of the third was a nightmare. Nothing going on at all.

State Farm was there.

Who the h scours the internets for those "too many men" pics? And don't say Charlie.

This is why Blogger suspended your asses. Google's gay but not that gay.

It was a terrible day, and it caused me to write this for a creative writing class:

Flyer Hater said...

Anybody watching this Gretzky lovefest on the NHL Network?

wilsmith said...

I make a lot of typos, eh?

combined with the sentences being cut off at the end of the page, it looks like I don't know what the hell I'm saying.

KaylaJ said...

when Crosby went into the boards the entire arena fell silent. when the news came that it was a H.A.S. i thought i'd pass a line of pens fans making their way to the nearest bridge on the way home.
