GAMEDAY [8] -- HURRICANES

[carolina.png]

7:30 -- FSN

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

BREAKING NEWS: Penguins Center Jordan Staal and Hurricanes Center Eric Staal are brothers

Just thought we'd be the first to tell you.


1:43

:::::::::::

Add Hal Gill to the list of Penguins D-men that'll  be watching tonights game in a suit.
He sat out of practice with an undisclosed  injury. TRIBUNE

Crosby himself is also battling his own health issues. Sinus Infection.
No worries, he'll play, but you just know that somewhere in the offices of the Ottawa Sun someone is preparing an article in which he'll coyly suggests someone should blow smoke in the face of Bing.

And you thought Brian Burke held grudges for a long time.

:::::::::::

We're heading down to the Mellon for the game tonight.
As of right now, this is the only home game we'll get to this year.

No idea what the game recap will look like tomorrow.



do it

Paul said...

Derek its so cold here on the blue line without you.

tanya said...

they probably were put under arrest for breaking that santa...

fleuryous said...

Wait, did we sign Levar?


AH, so excited.


Sweet video too.

I didn't know that Jordan had three other brothers--it's never been emphasized. Ever.

Crazy.

TheNWChica said...

I love that video....

I hope they had all that stuff in the garage or looted a Value Village or MamaStaal was not pleased when she saw her china cabinet that evening. lol

Steve Braband said...

Where was Gunner Staal?

Mighty Ducks 2.....

Anyone? Anyone.....?

Go Pens

Sid gets 2 tonight.

christina said...

yeah, I knew it was coming, but I still lol'd at the staal brothers comment.

guess what my drinking game is tonight??

LETS GO PENS!!!!!

KaylaJ said...

i hope by the time all the staals retire, i can figure out which is which without a uniform on. i guess at least the parents always knew what the next one would look like

Snakes said...

I waited all week for a Acid Queen PS and I didn't get it! Hopefully there will be one in the recap post.


Go Pens

WWJPD

TheNWChica said...

Hey Kayla....and it's not even like you can say the blond or the redhead, since there are two of each. :)

Lloyd said...

I think we have an official PensBlog ChatBlog drinking game theme tonight

KaylaJ said...

chica and that's what makes it worse, jordan & eric the blondes look more like each other, while marc & jared the gingers look more like each other.

but i'm not gonna lie, the only way i'll know which staal brother is our's tonight is by what color they are wearing.

BlacknGold66 said...

I predict the ice will be cold tonight (ooooh hoh hoh man I hope the Staff quotes me in tomorrow's post for being so darned smart!)

WOOOOOOO!


@Christina: Drink every time they say Staal? (Do a shot when they mention the word "brother"?)

You're gonna be Slegr'ed by the end of the 1st period!

Penguins Center Jordan Staal and Hurricanes Center Eric Staal are brothers
Damn - I'm at work and can't start my Staals are brothers drinking game yet.

I hope no one here is trying to get student rush tickets. I just looked out the window at work and see that the line is wrapped all the way around the arena and almost to Center ave.

BlacknGold66 said...

Dude, I just looked out my window HERE (Cleveland) and saw the student rush line.

slush said...

Im in on the chatblog drinking. Damn Jaos is going to the game, again. Bastard. Im home with the kids. Im such a housewife. Damn me.

Go Pens!

Justin said...

I'll be handing out free candy before the game.

No joke.

jefe p said...

coyotes are doing student rush tonight (along with teacher and military rush). copy cats, er, dogs.

staal brothers. drink!


GO PENS.

debrisslide said...

I heard that Philadelphia is doing a student rush night for their game against the Pens on December 13th. If that turns out to be true, I'm blowing a ton of money to get down there and go to the game with kimberlass (because cheap tickets are worth travel expenses). Camp out if we have to. True story.

Russ Tundra said...

Watch the Pens Game here

Here is a link to watch the game. Create an account so you can chat.

akus said...

Students camped out on the Gate 8 doorstep early this morning, with one group bringing their own tent. A few students arrived as early as 25 hours before Thursday night’s 7:38 puck drop.

The remaining student rush nights will be held Nov. 13 vs. Philadelphia, Jan. 20 vs. Carolina and March 20 vs. Los Angeles.

greenrin said...

No joke, my husband and I were leaving for our house this morning on our way to our jobs. Up pulls this van, the side of the van displays the title "The Candy Man", the driver asks me if I know where Brooks Street is. My husband looks at me and says, "It's a sign from God." The driver looked at us like we were nuts.

J.S. said...

I will not be participating in drinkblog tonight, but I'll at least be in the chat. Day 6 has passed, 24 days to go.

In other breaking news, Jerome Bettis is from Detroit and Chris Drury once played in the Little League World Series.

snickerdoodles said...

The Staal's are brothers? All of them? How did that happen? And how come nobody told me?



lol!

debrisslide said...

I can never get chatblog to load. :(

Colin said...

Staal. Buries it.

Go Pens.

akus said...

Satan
Staal
Sýkora

Sweet

Who wants Rickrolled....I mean who wants into the chat?

Do it.

chris e said...

Let's do this shit!

sh0ez said...

Gill was in a car accident and broke his finger.

The Goon Blogger said...

Can we change the drinking game to drinking when people post about jokingly not knowing the Staals are brothers?

BlacknGold66 said...

You'd get equally as drunk Goon Blogger.

wilsmith said...

really?

Annie said...

Woo! Levar Burton!

Enemy Pie is right.













Uh, what?


















Ugh, sorry. That wasn't funny at all. Then again, I am very drunk.

meecrofilm said...

Clutch.

Reading Rainbow guy ftw.

stokes said...

Predictionblog: Hockey will be played and a team will win.


But it won't be the Flyers.



WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

fleuryous said...

I hope Staal buries one, so people can get off his back. haha


And because I'm always looking for a Kennedy goal...do it, TNTK.


And they JUST said it...did you drink?

fleuryous said...

OMG...SUNDIN CLOSE TO A RETURN.


Thank God.

fleuryous said...

Sheesh...Dupuis coming out strong.


Hat trick. I'm not proud. haha

Steve In Denver said...

Bizzzzzzzzzz wooo

fleuryous said...

I saw him "WOO" like good 'ol Ric Flair.
I SAW IT.

Allison said...

jesus if the drinking game had to do with whenever they talked about BROTHERS in general, you'd be smashed halfway through the first peroiod

dlonlo said...

The Insider Survey
Poll From TIOPS wow

Should the Penguins explore trading Jordan Staal for a top flight winger?

Yes (67%, 608 Votes)

NO, way too early to give up on Staal (33%, 301 Votes)

debrisslide said...

Orpik's turnover was the worst.

fleuryous said...

Jesus Christ, that's sad.

Ye fans of little faith.


He's having a pretty good game thus far....

SO LAY OFF HIM, PEOPLE.

fleuryous said...

haha...this commercial.

I love Max...and you know he's not joking about the date. haha

Allison said...

HAHAHAHAHAHA max with a follow up commercial!!!!!!
MADE MY LIFE!!!!

debrisslide said...

That commercial with Max is more motivating than Dockers.

fleuryous said...

That slow-motion "WOO"...God, I love Biz Nasty.

fleuryous said...

Staal is having a pretty good game.

Wooooooooo.

fleuryous said...

Battle of the 28s. haha

Anna. said...

I reallly want to see that commercial.

brett said...

goalpostblog

debrisslide said...

If we can't tie it up in the third, we are jokes.

fleuryous said...

Pens are playing better than the Canes, I think, but we just haven't banked any in.


GET ONE, Staal--I think he will.


Crosby is pissed. haha

And I seriously love Goligoski.

Let's go Pens.

debrisslide said...

Goligoski will tie the game. You read it here first.

Joose said...

Is there a crowd at this game?

fleuryous said...

GENOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

J.S. said...

the fedotenko zone!!

2-1 Pens

fleuryous said...

WOOOOOOOOOOO.

GENO-FEDO.

fleuryous said...

And Staal got the assist, bitches.


His smile made me smile. GO GRONK.

rrrrrrrrr said...

Staal & Tank. Nice.

rrrrrrrrr said...

Crazy idea. (Dumb maybe?)

Maybe Staal is the second line center and Malkin just moves to wing??

Staal just looks so comfortable, and Malkin can play anything offensive. He could probably hit cleanup for the Pirates.

fleuryous said...

TALBY!

spanky kane said...

MAXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX!!!!

fleuryous said...

I like these lines, Dude.


MT=Einsten.

jovi said...

i wasn't aware that dinosaurs were quick animals?

some please info the annoucers

debrisslide said...

This third period comeback basically got me pregnant.

Help Me Rhonda said...

I love Fleury!

spanky kane said...

haha, i wanted fleury to get that goal so bad

xocharmedchildox said...

aww i wanted fleury to get that goal hahah.

and i counted 5 "Staals are brothers" comments.

i love this team.

fleuryous said...

I wish MAF had gotten that empty-netter.

He's a goofball.

Yeah, I'm a grandma. haha

debrisslide said...

BEST THIRD PERIOD EVER, guys.

The Goon Blogger said...

Great to see Feds get on the board.

If MAF scores that goal, all the females at that game would have been impregnanted.

Flyer Hater said...

Malkin is such a beast it's not even funny. I think we found Crosby's linemate.

Kimberlass said...

So, I'm thinking this was foreshadowing for a multi-point season for MAF. Right? Right.

The Goon Blogger said...

I dunno fh, I still think it should be more for a spark. The Hossa-Crosby-Malkin line was basically mud every time they were put out against the Wings. I like them centering their own lines because it forces teams to pick their poison. I just don't think HCMT gave enough time for Satan to gell with Crosby. And I don't like Sykie being left out in the cold.

Also, Staal was finding Tank all night, they looked real good together, tonight atleast.

debrisslide said...

The third period itself was enough to get all the females pregnant. I know I sure am, goon blogger. My colleagues confirm: they're totally fucking pregnant.

Max did it for me though. He treated it like a shootout or something, just nudged that sucker in. Wooooo.

The Goon Blogger said...

In the case of karma's sense, Max Talbot must deliver pizza to the gates every game now.

fleuryous said...

Staal needs to be center, basically.

I'm thinking that Malkin on Crosby's wing would be pretty boss.

Sure, it may have not been so successful during the SCF, but Malkin had some sort of a...thing going on. He's CLEARLY on top of his game now, though, MFers. WOOOOOO.

They played well the whole game, but it finally payed off in the third.


GO PENS.
Show the Rangers who's the boss*.

*NOT Tony Danza.

Flyer Hater said...

Any more bitching about a slow start?

Flyer Hater said...

You really can't take anything that happened in the Detroit seriously too seriously. Almost no one other than Hossa or Crosby had a good series.

fleuryous said...

And Talby is so clutch.

But we all know that.


And if MAF had gotten that goal, the walls would come down. Er...circumferencal barricades? haha.

Flyer Hater said...

Thread calling out Fleury for being selfish for going for the goal and icing the puck on LGP in 3, 2, 1...

The Goon Blogger said...

There isn't one already? For shame LGP.

jovi said...

malkin and sid shouldn't stay together. its ok for now, but it is better to have TWO deadly lines. plus Sykie needs that "Malkin mojo"...we need him to start scoring more.

i do like staal playing w/ tank and max w/ mr. kennedy is like the crack-head olympics. love it.

i do believe they're starting to gel but we still need to get crosby a butt-buddy.

debrisslide said...

i do like staal playing w/ tank and max w/ mr. kennedy is like the crack-head olympics

Hahahahahhaha. True that, son.

I was so pissed off throughout 99% of the game on top of being nauseous and having a gastrointestinal crisis earlier today, so the fact that we pulled that shit out is making me RIDICULOUS HAPPY.

Help Me Rhonda said...

max w/ mr. kennedy is like the crack-head olympics.

Ha. Best line of the week.

somechic said...

Bruce Springsteen?

LargeTurkey said...

Bisonette sucks. We don't need two fighters. Bring up Janne Pesonen.

matthew said...

Agreed, bring up Janne, let's see what he can do.

Flyer Hater said...

debriss, this game reminded me of some Devils losses over the years. They get a lead on a fluky play, goalie holds the fort, and we hit like 15 posts and miss 5 empty nets in the 2nd and 3rd periods. You just knew that the first goal had to be fluky if we were going to score at all and the floodgates would open.

The Goon Blogger said...

I love Biz Nasty's fights, and love that he and Godard can convince more people to fight than Laraque. I'd rather see Thomas get sent down then Biz Nasty.

Godard pulling Brookbank to his feet was probably the greatest thing in the world, even if Brookbank used it to his advantage.

Rick M. said...

I'd say send Thomas down and bring up NaNaNaNaNaNaNaNa

Rachael said...

Wowwwwwww, if I had a winky it would be bangin' the ceiling right now

What a great third-

The Big K said...

I sent an anthem pic tonight.

Don't skip it!

I was very disappointed to see that my pic from Saturday was missed.

debrisslide said...

Our offensive system was working all game. We got a good PP goal to energize, and once we were energized we could demoralize the Canes. The other three goals were just badassery making itself known. It fucking worked.

sh0ez said...

Hopefully the Photoshop I just made makes it into the recap.

Also, I saw no one really replied. I thought bringing up the story that Gill was in a car accident might get a response. Guess not. Yikes @ cblog anymore.

What the HELL happened to tPB!? Ha ha. It's all . . . basic!

jefe p said...

sh0ez in preseason form.

what a game. they played like maniacs the second half.

sh0ez said...

I'm in preseason form? Ha ha.

jayness said...

It's no fluke that Max's goal corresponded directly with the return of the fu manchu.

The Goon Blogger said...

Hal Gill didn't get in a car accident, a car got into a Hal Gill accident.

jefe p said...

i saw the faux page turn. dont lie.

BlacknGold66 said...

I hate to get all "chatblog" on here, but did anyone else just get that random Pens Text alert that made no damned sense?

sh0ez said...

Ha ha jefe. Yeah. Shows I don't ever come on here anymore.

@ BnG: YES! ROCK 11 05 PM. Ha ha. WTF?

Jonny Van Mundegaarde said...

Dicky's never looked better. Now THAT needs to go on a jersey. An old school black and gold one.

Jonny Van Mundegaarde said...

Oh, and Jefe, i don't suppose if I sent you money, u could send me like...a gross of In-N-Out cheeseburgers my way, do ya? I don't know why, but they've been on my mind all day long

roachai said...

is anyone else on the penguins text message list and got a weird text saying ROCK . 11 05 P M??

BlacknGold66 said...

Funny thing you mentioned In-n-Out Jonny. Not too long before you texted me tonight we were talking about that joint. Weird.

Carroll said...

why is tpb pink???

Carroll said...

Charlie are you messing with things while the rest of the boys are at the game?

meecrofilm said...

WTF? Is this in celebration of reading rainbow guy or something?

Is charlie taking over the blog?

Is staff drunk as shit?

All this and more, soon. Hopefully.

The Goon Blogger said...

Charlie has assumed control after his trip over seas. God help us all.

debrisslide said...

Pensblog is pink in honor of all the awesome vagina that the boys are getting after that win.

Carroll said...

pink for breast cancer awareness?!?!? I hope.

Mike said...

oh, thank god your back!!!
