GAMEDAY [7] -- BRUINS

[boston.png]
7:00
FSN

Check out BOSTON BLUE LINE, newcomer to Gore this season.

[Picture+1.png]
Sabu getting the nod this evening. PENS
It had to happen sometime.
They're thinking a ways ahead right now, though.
They have Carolina at home Thursday then go on a four-game road trip which includes a small West-Coast romp.

Fleury is getting all of those starts.
Why not start Sabu in the friendly confines of Mellon Arena?
That's why Therrien is the coach and we sell our own pee for cigarette money.

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

[edmonton.png]
:: Whenever you think about pee, you think of the front office of the Edmonton Oilers.
Bloggergate continues in the great Northwest, with some dude who no one has heard of jumping to the defense of the Oilers. OILER NATION

Our personal take on bloggers and press passes?
Seth at EMPTY NETTERS deserves one. We don't.
Seth should be the beat writer by now.

We'd never ask for press passes and probably accept one if offered just out of courtesy.
But we prefer to be at home Googling pics of Body by Jake without Bob Smizik looking over our shoulder.

[carolina.png]
ACID QUEEN is up to her tricks again.

She was on Facebook trying to find a friend
and came across Mike Commodore's Facebook page and subsequent personal pics.

She sent it over to PUCK DADDY, who is helpless when it comes to pictures of half-naked men.

We thought it only fair to find pics from Acid Queen's Facebook page:


[washington.png]
JAPERS' RINK had this screenshot from NHL '09.
It's real.

[ept_sports_nhl_experts-380740800-1224514433.jpg]
They recently made everyone download a "roster update" before going into the section of the game where you meet with team members to play a game online.
Roster updates = propaganda.

We've seen ads for Subway on the boards, as well. What a joke.
Quizno's is the choice of a new generation.
We just want to know how much Bajoke Obama's campaign paid for this advertising.

:: Staying with our good friend Japers',
he covertly alerted us to a "Ovechkin lookalike contest." LINK

We'd show the photoshop of Ovechkin as the GEICO caveman,
but we're sick of that advertising campaign.

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

Coming off his clutch victory against Toronto,
Mel Gibson went out to celebrate.

He has not been seen since.


Our only guess is Hines Ward cheap-shotted him on Carson Street and broke his jaw.

is the game going to be streamed on Yahoo? If not, any suggestions other than the unreliable channelsurfing.net??

Go Pens

mmmk1989 said...

i hope after the election they will have another roster update that will get rid of the political bullshit.

not watching most of the game because i have a night class.

which sucks because i miss the season premiere of sabutage.

debrisslide said...

So, I just creeped around TD Banknorth Garden and subsequently had the creepiest man ever try to start a hockey conversation with me on the C train (thanks to my PITTSBURGH PENGUINS HOCKEY hoodie).

I get to watch this game on TV, so I'm pretty happy.

Leaving North Station just as all the hockey fans started to arrive was one of the saddest experiences of my life.

WOOOOOOO.

Sabu got rid of those horrible Sher-Wood pads, he will be money tonight.

Sabu-haters...hold your tongue, at least until after the game tonight.


He was pretty solid in the preseason, and I'm an optimist, so GO SABOOOOOO.

fleuryous said...

Jesus H, WHY are there no Goligoski jersey shirts around?


Eff that.

BlacknGold66 said...

A mention of AO and no use of the pic of him at the Browns/Redskins game yesterday?

I was the only person at the party I was at that new who he was (well, besides my girlfriend.)

"What? Was that Ovechkin they just showed before going to comercial?"

Everyone else: "Who's Ovechkin?"

Stunned.

Mike Commodore is apparently living in my dorm room from 1996.

Wow Ovechkin looks like a tool with that lid on.

fleuryous said...

He looks like Conan.

fleuryous said...

dying alive said...

Fleuryous - if you're in Pittsburgh, I think I've seen them at Pens Station.

Raybin said...

Ovechkin just before the game, "You guys would tell me if I looked stupid in this, right?"

Obama is getting out of control.

So, i got a show tonight at Belvedere's in which we are going to play the shortest set possible, play the songs as fast as hell and watch the rest of the game. Hopefully, i get to see most of it.

fleuryous said...

Oh, Stokes...you silly person. haha.


I actually like Sabu.


Come on, Dan the Man. haha

Woooooooooo, I'm a mind-reader.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Dr. Turk, Whit is already depressed with the Soxs losing and his injury ... you are putting him on suicide watch ...

What's going on with your relationship? *laughs*

stokes said...

Dr. Turk: Here's the thing: the band is called The Shout Outs. It was formed around drinking beer and watching Pens games(i didn't form it, but i like the premise). the whole BAND is mailing it in. And it will be awesome.

I don't know about this game. The B's seem to have had our number last year. But that was last year...

I like Sabu. he'll play a solid game.

You guys need to advertise the pensblog chatblog more. I can't find the link these days.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

I think that might have been a Freudian slip there, Dr. Turk. I'll let it slide because I have been watching the 1st season of Scrubs on DVD, and all I think of is the conversations involving Rowdy and appletinis a bunch of us to have in C-blog *laughs*

Abbreviated replay of Saturday's game on FSN now.

I want to watch Crosby's 100th goal for a 408359485th time. haha

I think I saw a GAY4STUDS vanity plate one time when I was in Palm Springs

Chicken Pizzaiola ruled my mouth one day. I was skeptical at first, but sure enough my molars and incisors even the mighty canines were in a daze as to what happened. Subway happened.

Sabu don't care what is said about him, he's a consummate professional that wins games. It's a little known fact that he and Conklin had a fart-off at the end of the last season. Whoever couldn't take the stench had to get the hell out of Mellon. The victor is in our net tonight. Old sulfer-and-hot-mud ass is what they call him...

This game is bananas.

The PK is boss.

Malkin needs to serve up a fuck you sandwich.

WOOOO!

You know, for the amount of bitching people have done about Satan, 4 goals in 7 games ain't too bad. How many does Hossa have?

Seeing Malkin next to Gill is funny, because...

there's a giant next to a...gianter giant.


And like I said...

WOOOOOO SABUUUUUUU.

Only supremely talented goal scorers can put that puck in the net, most would have just fired the back right into Thomas's chest.

Satan may want to ask for some gay eyebrow shaping tips from Potash....just sayin...and if there were really a god, the fucks who made the saved by zero toyota commercial and the stanley cup commercial on NHLN would both be dying slowly and painfully

Ugh, watching the winning shootout goal of any game gives me chiiiiiills.

bluzdude said...

Malkin looked possessed on that rush to the goal... I guess because Satan himself was on his heels...

fleuryous said...

Does anyone ever miss the Dockers commercial?

No?

Flyer Hater said...

Rage, the Stanley Cup commercial is one of the coolest things I've ever seen. How could you possibly not like it?

Flyer Hater said...

Fleury, it's like a sound you hear, all in your ear, from sundown to suuuunset.

"Old sulfur-and-hot-mud ass is what they call him..."

are you talkin' about the Keeper of the Cup commercial ad for the HHOF????....that's played like one out of every four commercials????
...had to be produced by the McKenzie Brothers. or maybe Terrance & Phillip.

seeing the Keeper of the Cup taking a dump = priceless [at least he didn't go IN the Cup, like Draper's kid]

W[SAB]OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

I will feel much more comfortable about my life now if Fleury gets hurt.

Nulpher said...

Sabu said no!

Flyer Hater said...

Actually, Sabourin sucks if he has to play more than 2 games in a row. If Fleury gets hurt for an extended period, we're fucked. All that tonight proved is that we can give Fleury a rest here and there and still feel confident about our chances that night.

The Goon Blogger said...

T-Minus 10 minutes until LGP starts talking about Arabian Facebuster being the starting goalie.

Facebuster was a champ tonight in net, exactly what you want to get from your back up.

And how bout that fake by Gino on the SO? Best Shootout move I've seen him pull out.

The Goon Blogger said...

Curses! fh beat me to the LGP joke.

meecrofilm said...

^^T hruth.

We found that out last year.

Fleury will be back, fortunately.

Kimberlass said...

Now Sabu might get traded to a team to start like he wants and we can bring up Curry as backup. WOO!

debrisslide said...

Yeah, kimberlass gave herself a prison tat of #71 and my Malkin shirt is still undefeated. WOOOOOO.

eileenover said...

Sabourin was absolutely phenomenal tonight. I'm proud to have him as our backup. He is so clutch in the shoot outs it's unreal.

I think Malkin will score on almost every shoot out, penalty shot, and shorthanded breakaway this season. After he missed that penalty shot against the Rags in the playoffs you know he was seriously pissed. He will never let that happen again.

Flyer Hater said...

I think the last goal Malkin scored in a shootout was the one against Washington 2 years ago to cap off that 4 goal comeback. Scoring against Kolzig doesn't even count anyway.

Flyer Hater said...

I haven't been this pumped for a regular season win in a while. This was just a great game and win.

The Goon Blogger said...

I think the Pens just have a collective amount of SO talent for the entire team. Since Crosby and Satan took shots that *I* could have made the save on, there was plenty left in the pool for Malkin to take and make a sweet goal with.

Kimberlass said...

Telling you, Flyerhater, it's the tattoo and the shirt.

Adrienne said...

Fleury out tonight so he can properly wear his back brace for the rest of the week before the road trip. Shortly upon his return to the ice, Sabourin will take it up as regular wear.

Honestly, I want to punch both the Bruins and the Pens in the face after the last 5 minutes of the game. Why bother trying to go for the win when you can play out so you at least get a point?

UGH.

debrisslide said...

Sabourin was ridiculously solid tonight. He kept us in the game. And Fleury got to chill. Perfect.

Kimberlass said...

I'm excited for the interviews. If they do not grant me Geno screen time, someone is going to die.

Oh, yeah, in our joy have we forgotten that Therrien is going to murder Staal?

Flyer Hater said...

"Honestly, I want to punch both the Bruins and the Pens in the face after the last 5 minutes of the game. Why bother trying to go for the win when you can play out so you at least get a point?"

Yeah, because trying to preserve a road point in the final minutes with solid defensive play is really stupid. We should have put Crosby-Malkin-Sykora-Satan-Letang out there for the entire 5 minutes.

The Goon Blogger said...

Why is Staal going to get murdered (I missed the first period so this isn't entirely sarcastic)? He would have ended the game in OT if it wasn't for him getting hooked. I thought the slash was a little suspect obviously, but Staal musta thought he could get away with it, Wideman was throwing so pretty big checks and I guess Staal just wanted to let him know he was there. Also, Wideman totally embelished.

Kimberlass said...

Yeah yeah, he thought he could get away with it, but it was still a really stupid move when we were one man up in overtime. I kind of felt bad because he looked so upset. I just don't think Therrien will take it so lightly. He doesn't take much lightly.

Flyer Hater said...

Staal fucking blows. There's just no way you take that penalty in that situation. A 4 on 3 PP in OT is almost a guaranteed goal.

Kimberlass said...

I almost killed my roommate screaming at him. I get too emotional.

fleuryous said...

Oh, I forgot...

Crosby played like a beast with a head cold.


And he's still giving interviews.

OH, HE'S SUCH A "WHINER."

Suck on it, Bruins.

Bruins=RUINED.

LargeTurkey said...

Staal is a clown. Has anyone seen that recent South Park? You don't shoot people in the dick! Seriously how much money are we going to pay this guy next year. He's not worth more than Fedetanko.

The Goon Blogger said...

I can admit that, especially because the refs are looking to even up the teams even more than usual. Even if we had lost, I don't think it would be a huge deal.

We had basically a 3 on 2 for a good 40 seconds at the end of OT and still couldn't get it in.

fleuryous said...

Watch Staal score 10 goals next game and people will want to fellate him until the new arena is built.


I bet you he'll be even more motivated on Thursday...brotherly competition.

WOOOOOOOOO.

The Goon Blogger said...

It's still a little early in the season to be busting Gronk's offensive output, Sid only got his first goal the other night.

fleuryous said...

In other words...Staal doesn't suck.

It's the beginning of the season, Dudes.

Chilllllllll.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Staal was moving in front of the net if you didn't notice at the end. If it's not one thing we're bitching about, it's another. Staal is a young guy who is learning to adapt, give him time to do so. He is talented defensively and is a great shut-down center. Center is his natural position and the scoring isn't coming like it was his rookie season, but it's hardly because lack of effort.

Tank has also been contributing on the defensive side of play and has been great on the energy line. Give him some credit.

@Fleuryous: Don't bring up the brotherly competition. Not like the media doesn't try to go over-kill with that *rolls eyes* Eric and Jordan are brothers? What?! What about this Marc Staal and Jared Staal? Are they brothers too?

Flyer Hater said...

"great shut-down center."

I respect your opinion IHK but I think that's laughable. At times this year he's looked lost in his own end and has not made the simple plays to get the puck out. I can't stand when people treat Staal like Bob Gainey when he's finished with a minus more often than not. I'm sorry, but you can't be a 2nd line center in this league and not be expected to contribute offensively.

fleuryous said...

Oh, but it's so fun. haha


It's almost as annoying as the "how will the Pens survive without Gonchar and Whitney" comment. haha.


Seeing Sabu after he made that last save in the shootout makes me smile...Sabu it.

LargeTurkey said...

I don't think people are saying Staal is bad, but everyone always says Crosby, Malkin and Staal. The three that are going to bring us to the promise land. Staal should not be considered in this company. Fine, he is good at defense. To bad he plays forward. Defensive forwards are valuable, but they are not superstars. I just don't want us to overpay for this guy. 2.5 million is still a decent amount. I simply said I don't want him to be paid significantly more than that. And seriously his chop to the dick in OT is indefensible.

Flyer Hater said...

If Staal asks for more than 3 million, you tell him to F off.

The Goon Blogger said...

fh makes a solid point. While I think Staal eventually will be a Selke winner (multiple time winner IMO) there's no way he's Bob Gainey right now, nor will he ever will be most likely. Bob Gainey was the best defensive forward to ever play the game.

Stoosh said...

Ty who?

Marian who?

I would like the record to reflect that I have officially turned in my membership card to the Job Dany Sabourin National Association.

Normally, I hate me some 2-1 games because I'm always afraid they're going to give Count Bettman cause to allow the pre-lockout rules to seep back into the game. But there was a good flow to the game and that resulted in a plethora of scoring chances.

- Jefe, would you say I have a PLETHORA of scoring chances?

- A what?

- A ple..tho...ra.

*stunned*

-Oh yes...you have a plethora!

[sha-TAN]

TheFandangler said...

Staal = trade bait...

That was disgusting.

Kimberlass said...

Flyerhater, you need to talk to me and debrisslide. We are your biggest fans.

Well, okay, I can't speak for her, but still.

But I mean, you two are married.

The Goon Blogger said...

Yeahhh! Staal for Gaborik! Right!?

Vomit.

Flyer Hater said...

Staal for Semin.

Do It.

The Goon Blogger said...

fh, I'd actually be all for that if it would actually go through.

On the other hand, Semin isn't exactly the best player in terms of getting contracts done. He had a very ugly dispute with Washington over his last contract if I'm remembering correctly. Not the kind of guy you want to bring into the "We all take pay cuts" Penguins lockerroom.

dying alive said...

Talking about trading Staal? Did I accidentally stumble onto LGP?

The Goon Blogger said...

I think you accidently stumbled upon Lets Go Jokes.

Rage said...

Totally off the subject, but I got this little missive from Illegal Curve....what a class organization.


VOMIT>

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Flyer Hater, I see where you're getting at with your comment. You obviously know I'm not proclaiming him as Gainey which should be stated for others to know. Tonight wasn't his night, we know that, Staal knows, HCMT knows, but he can't have a great night every night.

I think he is putting to much repsonsiblity on himself with the departure of Malone to be a more versatile guy. I know you don't think highly of Bugsy on many levels, but you at least understand the metaphor. Bugsy had great PK skills and defensive skills, but he also used his body to create offense and his hands are pretty nice. Not too mention his ability to fight and at least protect his teammates. Now Staal has a lot of abilities he wastes because he feels like he has to play differently which is what I feel is wrong with his playing now compared to last year and the year before. Staal has great capabilities as a Top 6 forward, to trade him now seems like we might be not giving him a chance to live up to his potential. I don't think we should give up on Staal considering all of this potential. Like I said he's young and needs to adapt to the changes presented in the organization.

Who the fuck are Sam Gagner and Andrew Cogliano?

I think Pens fans are just spoiled. They see young centers like Crosby and Malkin light it up and expect Staal to do the same. When in fact Crosby and Malkin are both one in a generation hockey players. Most guys Crosby and Malkin's age are just getting their first NHL time. Staal will be good.

Most of the time I just shout about God beating some one up or Biz Nasty murdering someone's family with their fists. But much like a goon stuffing in the odd goal, I stuff in the odd point about actual hockey.

Staal is steadily going backwards...

He's young, great, but I still say if e doesn't improve by the deadline see what solid player you can get and sign them long term.

You can get so much in return for Staal. These bone-headed Ontario-born GM's would give up almost anything to get their hands on the golden boy.

The same things that are being said about Jordan Staal now were said about Ryan Malone. They have almost mirrored careers so far to boot. Malone too had an amazing rookie campaign and then kind of plateaued for a while, constantly battling trade rumors while still going out and sticking it as hard as he could.

fh, while that's true, I just can't get the pipe dreams out of my head of having another Ronny Francis. I think Staal's potential is atleast that.

Flyer Hater said...

A hockey cliche that has always annoyed me is "naturally", like Staal's a "natural center". Did the doctor label him as a center as soon as he came out of the womb?

Flyer Hater said...

First of all, there will never be a player like Ronny Franchise again. Ronnie showed offensive ability early in his career, he's the 4th all-time leading scorer in history. At worst, we'd be losing a Rob Brind a'mour

The highlight reel is up. And it is glorious.
