GAMEDAY [10] -- SAN JOSE SHARKS

[sanjose.png]

The Pens are coming in 5-2-2.
We all know who they have played.

The Sharks are coming in 7-2-0.
Three of those wins came at the expense of the 3-4-1 Los Angeles Kings.
So don't look at San Jose's record at all.

THE CONFLUENCE has a nice preview.
EMPTY NETTERS brings home the bacon.

The last time the Pens were in HP Pavilion, Cheechoo Hines'd Eaton:



If you want to kill yourself, read the game recap that we did for it back in November 2006.
It was our 11th recap ever. OUCH.

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

HCMT robbed Pens and Sharks fans everywhere from seeing a supreme goaltending matchup between Nabokov and MAF. PENS

No idea what the reasoning is. But we're not coaches.

Given the way that Sabu played against the Bruins, though,
maybe we are in fact gonna see a solid goaltending matchup.

Last time Sabu was on the West Coast, he stunned Vancouver in his first start after MAF went down in Calgary:



Inspirational performance by Sabu.
Legame.

+ Hal Gill is no dice tonight.
Zigo-Godard-Biz will be the fourth line.
The top 9 are always everywhere.

+Darryl Sydor will be in the lineup tonight.
He recently requested a trade from the Penguins.
Which means he is putting his skills on display for prospective teams to want him.
Expect him to play as lights-out as a role-playing d-man can play.

+ Max Talbot is not suiting up tonight due to an undisclosed injury. PG
+ Here's another article discussing Talbot's role on the Pens. PG

Speaking of Mad Max...
Is his foot still bothering him from blocking a shot in last year's playoffs?

Here's a pic from a preseason game this year:



And here's one from the Canes regular-season game:

He wore those covers on both skates when returning from his foot injury during the playoffs,
explaining that if he only wore one, people would target it. Wearing two was gonna make it harder for opponents to target the bad foot.

Anyway, if he was wearing those covers in the postseason, maybe the injury was still nagging him.
He blocks shots for a living.
If they aren't uncomfortable, you got to consider keeping them on all the time.
Or does that makes us pansies?

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

PUCK DADDY went inside the most shocking stats accumulated so far this NHL season.
He put the Pens 22% power-play unit on the list.
Which we guess would be a shock to everyone expecting the PP numbers to suffer.
Pens fans aren't shocked by the number at all.

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

Since there were no (zero) rebuttals posted in our comments in regard to us labeling Gregor and Brownlee as hypocrites, we consider it a done deal.
We're waiting for their fanboys to catch wind of it.

Point Pensblog.
The Pens will handle the rest on 11.06.
Crosby better keep his head up, apparently.

So, who do we turn to in the big Hacksaw battle?
To someone who we feel can make a big impact this season:


dude in the chair

Great post.


I love the chair dude.


GO PENS.


I'm all for Sabu. He'll work that net like a 9-5.

WOO.

Flyer Hater said...

Let's Go Crapourin.

debrisslide said...

Chair dude is really solid for GameDay. I bet he banged at least one of the Sharks' girlfriends.

BlacknGold66 said...

Fuck yes.

I love the dude in the chair.

What a douchebag.

Go Pens!!!

fleuryous said...

PS. Philadelphia is literally slaughtering Atlanta.


A 7-unanswered goal game? Hm...sounds familiar. haha

BlacknGold66 said...

P.S. Dude in the chair will be the Gary Roberts of this season.

Bank on it.

The Goon Blogger said...

Dude in the chair is so awesome he doesn't even care how awesome he is.

fleuryous said...

By the by, I hope Talby's okay.


We neeeeeed his energy.

And his 'stache.
Max, have you invested in a moustache like that?

Jonny Van Mundegaarde said...

Dude in the chair...FTW!

debrisslide said...

Kelly, I have a Max Talbot Watch in my AIM info that pretty much expresses your sentiment.

Mr. Plank said...

Chair dude is really solid for GameDay. I bet he banged at least one of the Sharks' girlfriends.

Dude in the chair banged my girlfriend :(

Too bad I gave her syphilis.

Go Sharks!

ps Cool if I troll in here tonight guys? Got shit else to do....

jovi said...

anyone know a website to watch the game on?

wilsmith said...

I think yahoo has it

The Goon Blogger said...

Russ has his usual Justin.tv feed going

fleuryous said...

Jovi, there's a link in the previous thread, I do believe.

meecrofilm said...

I like the call. Hacksaw won't have seen Dude in the Chair coming. Gotta jump on them early.

Let's see Sabutage get it done.

Ah, that recap was nostalgic. How far you've come, Staff.

Oh, and Oiler Nation gargles my balls. (Had to get that in. Now I'm done with it).

If my FSN HD isn't working by game time, people and woodland critters will die. Because of me.

Wow, What a sporadic, shit-tastic comment I just posted.

Ev said...

hines'd= boss

Jonny Van Mundegaarde said...

Hines'd > Free Candy

Nice little trip down memory lane, staff. I didn't know what to do...there were so many...words on the page. Complete paragraphs! Fuck that! And two posts later was my very first post on this blog:

Jon said...
A Voice out here on the west coast...I'm stationed out here in Cali, and went to the game last night...first off, NICE arena, the concourses are very nice, but the actual inside was nothing to write home about. It's beautiful from the outside though...can't wait till we get one of our own (fingers crossed till 12/20). And I can't believe no mention of the immortal Ian Moran suiting up for the Ducks, I had no idea he was still in the NHL. And about those penalties, even the Ducks fans sitting around me thought it was getting rediculous all the power plays they were racking up, and I couldn't believe Selanne didn't get a diving call in OT. Horrendous. A points a point though, and after noticing a 33-11 advantage at one point, that point speaks volumes.

Flyer Hater said...

Over/Under, the time it takes for Cheechoo to slewfoot Eaton, 5 minutes.

Burghthing said...

Dude in the chair needs the cleavage for cred.

debrisslide said...

The feed on channelsurfing seems solid, no?

Jonny Van Mundegaarde said...

Sweet, sweet pixelated cleavage

dying alive said...

OK, I just LOL'ed at the dude in the chair. OUT LOUD.

anthony doom said...

here we go folks

Hand of Godard said...

If someone wants to watch my stream on Orb let me know. I'm not sure how good it will be, but it's worth a shot. Unfortunately only one person can watch it at a time. Let me know.

bayonetwork said...

anyone know a site that has a live feed of the game?

kstewy16 said...

Is it just my TV or does the sharktank have a blue tint to it?

Ev said...

http://www.justin.tv/dman2077

Ksy92003 said...

Only two of San Jose's wins came against the 3-4-1 Kings, not three, which means the Kings are 3-2-1 against everybody else.

oddjobber said...

Lets go pens

fleuryous said...

Yikes, Godard was owned. haha

dying alive said...

Good job of pulling Godard's jersey over his head so he couldn't fight back.

kstewy16 said...

Satan tanked nabokov!!!!!!!!!!

Hip said...

Goddard wants that one back. He'll be running people all night now.

Fucking lame call right here. I know you have to make the call Errey, but it's lame nonetheless.

Chair dude... hmmmm. Convince me.

fleuryous said...

Hm...digging that Staal-Zigo pairing.

OrpikSmash said...

lights out PK

fleuryous said...

And when Zigomanis smiles and has no front teeth...I just can't help but laugh. haha

He's ridiculous.

Hip said...

Tank has made some stud defensive plays recently.

kstewy16 said...

Legame a couple solid plays. Now if only he could score for us...

OrpikSmash said...

i love gettin the commercial break before the PP

fleuryous said...

PPG!


And Malkin's a beeeeeeast.


Actually, our defensive work is rather impressive so far.


And this winter warm commercial is annoyingly charming.

kstewy16 said...

Shut it fleuryous!! No trash talking jeeps!
I'll drive over your little miata in my jeep!

Docciavelli said...

Great. I tune in just as a Shorty happens. Fucking A.

OrpikSmash said...

thats a play where a 2nd defenseman on the PP would be beneficial. somebody needs to be backing up goligoski

Docciavelli said...

Seriously, what an Epic Fail of a PP. I agree with those who think 2 D should be on the PP points.

And Sabu looks rattled.

eileenover said...

This is just weird. They look disoriented.

oddjobber said...

I just got booted from the Shark chat on Justin TV. Just went in there to represent, I got FSN on 52 inch in front of me. Go Pens!

pops said...

so far its turnover city. they need to get something going offensively. something, anything.

fleuryous said...

Ugh, they had so much energy before that goal--get it baaaaaack!

anthony doom said...

more turnovers then an arby's on sunday so far. still when we get our feet moving i have hopes for a sweet game

pops said...

christ. what an ugly game so far.

pops said...

also, staal is never scoring again.

kstewy16 said...

I wish they would stop saying "thats the best chance then we've seen Staal have in a while"
Its BS, they've said that 3 times a game all season and were still waiting for him to score.

kstewy16 said...

Scuderi would have scored more on the chances that Staal has been given

pops said...

yea, remember when he had a WIDE open net and shanked it? staal has some confidence issues or something

OrpikSmash said...

scuds literally has scored more

Flyer Hater said...

Pens aren't scoring a goal tonight.

kstewy16 said...

haha, holly shit i totally forgot that scuds has a goal, and the pens will score, but it won't be staal.

Can you place bets on who is going to score goals? If so i would love to know what vegas thinks the chances of staal scoring a goal are.

nikki said...

man i hate the guys one the sharks channel, bay area tv or whatever
according to them we got dupuis as a free agent this offseason from minnesota....sweet. well, at least i didn't have to hear about hossa for once

eileenover said...

I love how everything is Staal's fault.

fleuryous said...

It's weird that there's a sentimental feature on Hooks.


He's not sentimental. He's FIERCE. haha.


Aw, how precious.

fleuryous said...

Staal is playing well. Just...whatever.


Sydor is playing really well...but he's got some impressing to do. haha. No, but I do like Sydor.


Come on, Pens--have an unreal 2nd and 3rd.

Team Canada said...

I just found the game online on the justin.tv link that was posted earlier. Are lots of the pens games online somewhere? I never thought of looking.

kstewy16 said...

Not everything is Staal's fault. For instance the Sharks goal isn't his fault. But the fact that this game isn't tied at 1-1, that's staals fault. The fact that staal has had about 103940 chances to score and doesn't have a goal yet? Yep, you can't blame that on anyone else except staal.

pops said...

yahoo has the pens feed

anthony doom said...

i think sykora will bury one. im calling that now. i think the second period we'll get a little more cohesive and have a few less of those "stumble over the blue lie like you've never played hockey" plays

kstewy16 said...

49 points in 15 games....God...

pops said...

haha i just heard that and thought i misheard it. but no, makes perfect sense.

fleuryous said...

You gotta hand it to Staal...

he comes back to defend, even if he's 500 miles away.
And he's a beast at it.

Pro-Gronk. haha

pops said...

eaton makes me cringe a little. i love him, but christ

OrpikSmash said...

at what point does trying to lift a guys stick by putting your stick through his legs seem like a good idea?

pops said...

oh yay. a penalty. ugh. come on, boys.

eileenover said...

No no no fleuryous, Staal is horrible. At everything. We should trade him right now. I mean he's supposed to have 10 goals already right?

kstewy16 said...

Nice kill, now lets get a quick one.
Malkin, i call it now

pops said...

sid laying down to block a shot on PK, terrible idea, but i totally respect it.

pops said...

fuck. we have 4 shots on goal. 4.

fleuryous said...

Eileen...I'm personally all for a Staal-Gaborik trade.


Staal is pretty much worthless, and I can't think of what else to do with 8 million dollars. haha.

Watch Staal become huge and people will line up to personally shine his balls.


In other news, SABUUUUU.

kstewy16 said...

Eileen, Staal barely had 10 goals last season...

And if he's good at defense, which he is, than put him on the 3rd line, let him stop crying about being on the 3rd line, stop talking about him like he's an elite player, sign him for 1 million a year, and lets end this dumb conversation.

pops said...

fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck.

kstewy16 said...

And gaborik is a softy bitch.
I can think of a 100 better ways to spend 8 million.

pops said...

it seriously hurts me to watch this.

the sharks are fucking good. play their system perfectly.

Sabou is lucky and good.

Mr. Plank said...

Save of the year? Ho-lee shit.

brett said...

Sabu.

Best shape of his life.

-Bob Errey

eileenover said...

stop talking about him like he's an elite player


If you want to debate this fine, but don't put words into my mouth. I never said he was an elite player. I think he has the potential to be an elite player, but it's going to take some time. He seems to be everyone's favorite whipping boy and it's getting really old.

fleuryous said...

Agreed, Eileen...agreed.

Sabu is doing pirouettes out there.

Let's score a goal for him, ay?

kstewy16 said...

Staal brings it upon himself when he cries and bitches when he's on the third line. He thinks he can play on the top 2 lines but when he is put on that line he is given a million chances and does nothing.
Its not making him a whipping boy its the truth.

Look back at some of the games we've played this season, Staal has had so many chances it isn't even funny. People have been dishing him the puck like the lunch lady dishes out pizza, but he has yet to bury one.
At what point are you going to stop feeling bad for the guy because we job at him and start realizing he sucks?

pops said...

sabou deserves a much better effort.

fleuryous said...

Sid looks disgusted.

pops said...

i wonder if therrien is even in the building tonight.

Flyer Hater said...

If the Pens manage to get a point, there should be a parade downtown.

OrpikSmash said...

talbot's nickname should be superstar just b/c of that commercial

fleuryous said...

mmmkay, I love Max Talbot.

oddjobber said...

HAHA Max Talbot commercial

Docciavelli said...

That chick wants Max' knob.

pops said...

new superstar commercial is so far the best thing ive seen tonight. woooooo

love the nod at the end with the chick in the passanger's seat

Docciavelli said...

Stan Savran looks better behind Pepsi 12-packs.

kstewy16 said...

I'm confident for the 3rd. The effort is there, they are just making mistakes and being beat by good defensive play. They are going to come out flying for the 3rd though. They are gonna the Sharks with their pants off and "pickle" stab one past Nabokov.
(sorry for the lame Vlassic joke, i'm just upset that the Bibster hasn't given us one yet.

oddjobber said...

Stall is not worth more than 3.5 mil per year. And he will get no more. Mark it.

pops said...

i trust in shero. shero is no fool.

eileenover said...

Oh I guess I feel bad for Staal! You are fucking brilliant.

kstewy16 said...

Wow i've had to much to drink, that comment made no sense. Just fill in the blanks with words. you can figure it out

meecrofilm said...

stewy, the effort is not there. This is pretty much the flattest the Pens have looked all season.

Maybe their goaltenders can steal a point like they've been doing pretty much all year.

oddjobber said...

I don't know, at this point I would still MUCH rather have Staal than Fedotenko...

OrpikSmash said...

in the offensive zone, i think stall would be more suited for a malone role. he's big and would be a good screener and has the stick work to deflect and put home trash. he needs to go back to left wing so he can do that.

Flyer Hater said...

For future reference, here's a new rule. If you can't spell Staal correctly, you're not authorized to comment on his play or contract situation.

kthxbai.

eileenover said...

They need to simplify their game. Make better tape to tape passes, create traffic in front of the net, and put some major pressure on Nabokov. And Sid and Geno need to stop trying to make the perfect play and just bury it.

oddjobber said...

COME ON PENS WAKEY WAKEY EGGS AND BAKEY

pops said...

flyers scoring almost as many goals as penguins have shots.

but i agree, i expect a big third.

Docciavelli said...

@kstewy16

Umm...are we watching the same game? 25 to 8 in shots on goal? I'm not as confident as you are, that's for sure. I'm hoping we "steal" one like Errey said--so far the Pens don't deserve to win, but for Sabu's choke-hold in net.

And for those who dissed the Sabu pick tonight because they wanted Flower: there's a reason HCMT has his job, and we have ours.

[Conk-who?]

Flyer Hater said...

The odd-man rush counts for the Sharks have to be in the triple digits.

kstewy16 said...

Well then Eileen, please tell me. Why are you upset that we job at a player who hasn't done shit for over 1 full season? It sounds like a valid fucking complaint to me.

There are a lot of players who have been sucking lately, but only Staal comes out and bitches that he should be a top 6 guy in our lineup. If he's gonna bitch to the media like that, then he needs to play. Or sit there and shut up and play 3rd line checking hockey.

fleuryous said...

Staal on the left wing=no dice. haha

I mean, it's not that I don't have faith in him on the LW, but...he's so much better at center.

oddjobber said...

STHAL STALL STAALL STAWL

Flyer Hater said...

"And for those who dissed the Sabu pick tonight because they wanted Flower: there's a reason HCMT has his job, and we have ours."

Right, because Fleury has proven his sucktitude repeatedly and the Sharks would be in double digits by now.

fleuryous said...

PS. Flyer Hater...keep up the Sabu-hating. We still have one more period. haha

BlacknGold66 said...

Ease up on the throttle kstewy

fleuryous said...

About the Flyers comment...they played the Thrashers.

Oddly enough, I accidentally typed "Trashers."


3rd period. GOOOOOOOOO.

oddjobber said...

I may not spell Jordan Stall's name right but you know what dude Ive been a fan since f-ing ZZ, Loney and Caufield so there.

vitalbeach said...

Wait, so everyone bitches about Staal's play on the wing in the Malone role so he moves back to center. And after making progress the past couple of games, he hasn't looked that good after 2 periods he should move back? I don't know, maybe we should let him get comfortable somewhere instead of asking him to learn multiple positions as a 20 year old?


This is reminding me too much of the Cup Finals...

eileenover said...

Hahaha you are a joke. Just stop talking.

oddjobber said...

Dude Im sitting on a couch and I can coach better than Therrian

eileenover said...

@vitalbeach

My thoughts exactly.

fleuryous said...

Ouch...he JUST went there.

fleuryous said...

I'd delete that comment, Sir. haha


You will be anally raped.

Flyer Hater said...

Oddjobber is an Oilers fan.

OrpikSmash said...

staal had as many goals in the playoffs as sid, sykora, and malone. i'm fine with him starting slow if he can perform like that in the postseason

Dan 2 said...

1) No well coached team gets out-shot this badly this often. Play like professionals.

2) I'd overlook Staal's problems if he was a checking line center. But his job is to put up points- and as long as he's sucking balls Sykora is a complete no factor.

3) Why dress two guys that just dress to fight in the first 3 minutes? You are still lacking a left winger that can score- your top two scores in WB/S are LWs. It's worth a shot.

4) Someone please for christs sake park their ass in front of the net.

Go Pens

pops said...

im glad we're talking postseason when the pens are a .500 fucking club if they lose tonight

anyway, positive thoughts
big third, big third, big third
do it

oddjobber said...

Ok, I'll stop being a joke now. I'm a little drunk and just looking to break in and have fun.

Seriously though, I can't f-ing spell.

I think the lack of shots on goal is a direct effect of Gonchar's absence. Crosby and Malkin seem to be doing alot more carrying the puck into the offensive zone than they should.

kstewy16 said...

I'm a joke? You're telling me to stop jobbing a player who blows, even though it is the point of this blog to job every player, whether good or bad, but since you have a crush on Staal it's not cool to say his performance since his rookie season has been terrible, and yet he has a big enough mouth the say he deserves top line ice time.

Just stop talking.

oddjobber said...

not an Oilers fan!!

Liked the Penguins since the day I could understand the game.. Go ahead.. Quiz me.. Quick answers (no googline, wikipedia) I promise.

vital beach said...

I don't get the Staal bashing. Staal is not the reason San Jose is making our skaters their prison yard friends.

kstewy16 said...

I wish you were an oilers fan, they understand that elite centers need elite wingers in order to be their best (See Messier/Gretzky/Kurri)

pops said...

staal is certainly not the only one who blows tonight.

just poor decisions all around.

fleuryous said...

I was so hoping for that Staal goal.

vital beach said...

kstwey's account explodes if Staal buried it.

Oh man, let's tune in on to the game on Thursday to watch Gretzky coach!

eileenover said...

They could really use Max out there tonight.

kstewy16 said...

I hope Staal gets a goal too. I hope you all prove me wrong. I hope Staal gets his shit together and becomes a big part of this team. I will go and lick Charlies balls just to prove i'm sorry if staal becomes a great player for the penguins.
But one goal won't prove anything. After all, Scuderi has a goal this season. Good thing Scoods kicks ass at defense.

oddjobber said...

I think we should keep Stahl

Dr. Turkleton said...

staal...

•youngest in his draft class
•this year, still the 17th youngest in the NHL

cut the kid some slack.

everyone can't be Crosby, Geno, OV.

FH said:
The odd-man rush counts for the Sharks have to be in the triple digits.

every time Eaton steps on the ice, it's automatically 5 on 4.25 for the Sharks...

[Tim Thomas > Jacques Plante]

oddjobber said...

YYYYYYAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWNNNNNN

Wake me up when the playoffs start...

pops said...

please someone kill me. i know this is fucking game 10 and its 1-0. but this is the worst ive seen the pens play in a LONG LONG LONG fucking time.

dying alive said...

The Pens are really flat tonight, and I will weep bitter tears if I stay up until 1AM only to watch them get shut out.

oddjobber said...

Stahl = Ron Fraancis

vital beach said...

Damn, how many times have the Sharks hit iron? That's got to be like four or five...


Come on boys, let's get a shot on this power play!

kstewy16 said...

BS whistle, poking the puck isn't possession.

this PP is pretty much the game

oddjobber said...

NUMBER 66 MAAAAAARRRIAN, LEMIEUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUXXXXXXXX

fleuryous said...

At least our PK unit is solid.

pops said...

shoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooot it

oddjobber said...

Malkin scores from the point. Mark it.

fleuryous said...

PPG, for the love of God.

kstewy16 said...

Ron Francis was one of the best players to ever play for pittsburgh.
That's all I will say to you Oddjobber.

sh0ez said...

I still laugh at cblog anymore.

fleuryous said...

Crosby just freaked the fuck out. haha

dd7 said...

Pens announcers= fountians of useless information

Seriously half the time they sound like they are announcing for the other team.

OrpikSmash said...

last time tank gets on the top PP

oddjobber said...

TRADE Fedotenko

dying alive said...

Yes, Pens rule on the power play!

...oh, nm.

pops said...

FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOU

FUCK YOU

kstewy16 said...

haha, cheechoo looked like he was drowning

pops said...

fucking cunt

Docciavelli said...

Flat flat flat.

Something nobody seems to remember with all the doom around here is the lack of our top D. No Whits, no Sarge = much tougher to get a solid breakout going.

So Staal's had a tough first 10 games. Big deal. It's a long season, and he didn't turn into a beast until late last year. We've got time.

@FH:

Keep jobbing Sabu. He keeps stopping shots. Every solid game Sabu turns in is less wear and tear on Flower.

[nice dive Pavelski]

sh0ez said...

Jesus pops. Take a pill.

fleuryous said...

So, can Sabourin get a medal for this game?

oddjobber said...

Stall is great! I was comparing Stall to one of Pittsburgh's best defensive centers ever.. I wish Therrien would play him at center more often.

PatricktPB said...

Why is Fedetenko on the ice during the PP? And why does it feel like there's only one Penguin on the ice at all times.

pops said...

sorry. im drinking. and this game is not helping.

eileenover said...

FUCK

sh0ez said...

Woo.

OrpikSmash said...

the sharks should get credit for a PPG there b/c it sure felt like they were on one

fleuryous said...

I am in no way upset with Sabu.

You can only stop so many shots.

Seriously.

COME ON, OFFENSE.

brett said...

we're just no good against the sharks.

sh0ez said...

Chernobyl.

dying alive said...

Well, hopefully the rest of the road trip will go better than tonight.

The doom & gloom is stupid anyway. IIRC, the Pens started off a lot more mediocre than this last season, and as I recall, they finished pretty well.

pops said...

game.

vital beach said...

Oh well, it's October. If we're going to play like this any time of the year get it all out now.

pops said...

no, i agree. doom and gloom is stupid.

but fucking 8 shots on goal?
8!?

PatricktPB said...

And I just turned off the TV. Watching this game made me want to stab my eye out.

sh0ez said...

Did cblog get LGP transplants?

fleuryous said...

Oh, there's no reason to panic now...but this game is nonetheless frustrating.


Shoey, if I ever become that ridiculous (LGP-caliber), I'll allow you to punch me in the ovaries.

vital beach said...

If there's anything good about these games, it's reading LGP afterwards. I'm not sure if there's anything more entertaining than the retarded threads that pop up over there after games like this.

vital beach said...

Redemption.

eileenover said...

Oh fuck yes

rrrrrrrrr said...

Well, Tank got it back.

fleuryous said...

TAAAAAAAAAAAANK!


Made up with that fucking penalty.


WOO!

sh0ez said...

Eat it, cblog.

pops said...

if there is one recap tpb would mail in, its this game. did anything good happen? besides sabou being great?

goddard got smoked. malkin missed the net one on one. shortie. sid hits bar. miniscule number of shots on goal. fedo takes a dumb penalty at the most crucial time.

The Pens' 8 shots on goal for the entire game proves the importance of the breakout. You can have Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin on the ice, but neither is worth dick without a proper breakout.

Fuck dealing for Gaborik, can we deal for Brian Campbell?

Staal doesn't deserve to be tossed under the bus. But until he learns to score again, he doesn't deserve to be on a line with Sykora either.

9 shots on goal is unacceptable. 9 SHHOTS ON F-ING GOAL

Wait, keep Fedotenko. I eat my own words.
