GAMEDAY [9] -- RANGERS

[rangers.png]



We looked back at some posts from the playoff series from last season.
It's amazing how much we hated Sean Avery.








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

[ Confluence ] has a solid statistical breakdown of the two teams.

Matt Cookie is ready to return.
Hal Gill is still out.
Tom Renney is still a douche.

Escape from NY.

Loved Ruutu starting shit at the end of the game. It's too bad he's dead to me now.

rangers suck.

Carroll said...

russ tundra thanks for the feed, all the other ones are from MSG.

BlacknGold66 said...

The Giants suck too.

Go Pens!






rangers suck.

debrisslide said...

russ, your FSN feeds are made of fucking WIN.

nikki said...

t-1 hour and 37 minutes

DO IT

Docciavelli said...

Thanks Russ!

Need a Pens win to get me ready for the Marine Corps Marathon tomorrow morning.

Passed up a night with the girlfriend for pasta and Pens. Well worth it if they beat the Rags.

The Goon Blogger said...

Hold the fucking phone!

Tom Kostopoulous bobble head night at WBS Dec. 6th. This is easily the greatest thing ever.

jefe p said...

go first yourself!

i hate new york new york!

and..

go pens!

christina said...

(i have nothing to add, except for...)



rangers suck.

TheNWChica said...

Thanks Russ! I need to get a TV in here. *sighs*

What sounds good for dinner my fellow C-bloggers? Pizza, Chinese or Halloween candy? It's not much past lunch time here...I guess I'll decide during the 2nd intermission.

At least I get to see Nazzy...I miss him. :(

Carroll said...

@chica- pizza and halloween candy.

johnnylaw said...

Anyone know if Renney will be out due to his injury? Somebody needs to get a photoshop out with him grabbing his forehead and have him saying "Ow! My vagina!" or something along the lines of him having a period and bleeding out of his head (vag).

Go Pens! Russ, thanks for the feed.

donniek87 said...

wow tPB has evolved quite a bit since i started going here
great job staff

DC BnG said...

And I thought Snake was dead....screw the rags, screw them back to adam 'the slash' graves

WWTRD?

Get a lovetap on the head and sit out the next game douching.

Russ Tundra said...

I'm not gonna do it all the time. I think It is BS for people out of town not being able to watch the game without paying an assload.

debrisslide said...

I just bought tickets to the Thrashers game on January 6. Anyone else going to be there?

Flyer Hater said...

"I just bought tickets to the Thrashers game on January 6. Anyone else going to be there?"

No, I'm pretty sure you'll be the only one in the entire building debriss.

Is anyone watching this show called Voices on the NHL Network? If they don't do Lange, I'll be really pissed. They're doing Jeanneret right now and he makes Doc Emrick seem under control during a game. I can't stand that he's famous for that one dumbass call

Flyer Hater said...

Has the blog officially jumped the shark?

TheNWChica said...

@carroll: I hope we get a lot of FreeCandy tonight too!

TheNWChica said...

Dude...where in the hell is Slippery Rock and why are they playing Cal in the middle of the season?

debrisslide said...

FH, since I can't be at any of the student rush nights, I would pay $50 to shit inside Mellon Arena while the Pens are playing. That's basically what I did.

Allison said...

Hahaha on MSG in new york, they're interviewing Marc Staal about being brothers with Jordan... Drinking game starting half hour before game time... Nice.

Colin said...

I am glad to have Cooke back, he's gonna have a big game.

Rangers still suck hard.

Kimberlass said...

We did the drinking game count last time and...death. Death occurs.

Before the third period, even.

...Hey debrisslide, I'll be at the Thrashers game. We should meet up!

akus said...

@FH,
I been looking to see if there is a line up for "Voices", but i have yet to find one.I too hope they do a segment on Mike Lange

I 'heard' the previews for Jeanneret, that was enough for me. Thank gawd for the mute button.--
--

Devils up 3-2 against the Flyers, 3rd period.
More fights in that game than goals.


Go Pens.

Evil Mike Lange said...

There's a gay bar in Shadyside called New York, New York.

just saying...

debrisslide said...

KIM DO YOU THINK OUR SEATS WILL BE RIGHT NEXT TO EACH OTHER? 'CAUSE I HAVE A FUNNY FEELING!

Colin said...

Oh, and Michael Rozival is a waste of a hockey player.

Go Pens.

Allison said...

Oh shit what's going on in philly... A smoke bomb was just thrown on the ice... Or a stink bobm or something... Classy philly

Allison said...

Woah... The whole arena is so foggy... And the new jesrey announcer on my tv just said something along the lines of "no suprise the first time this happens it's in Philly". And they're all complaining about the smell. EwwW and unfortunatly the Flyers just won.

Kimberlass said...

THAT WOULD BE SO WEIRD ZOE I DON'T KNOW IF I COULD HANDLE IT.

I just hope I can get Malkin to sign my shirt, just so I can pretend he's coping a feel.

...GO PENS!

akus said...

Announcers described the smell as "pungent", perhaps the smell drifted down from MSG.

TheNWChica said...

If HCMT got hit with a stick, he'd get a bandaid and not even leave the bench!

Kimberlass said...

If HCMT got hit with a stick the stick would shatter in fear of the stare down it was about to recieve.

He would be very 'dissapoint' in that stick.

TheNWChica said...

lol Dat stick ees so soff!

Hand of Godard said...

Anyone know what channel the HD feed is on? 226 is still playing Getting Abroad

Rick M. said...

Awesome feed.

Thanks Russ Tundra.

Allison said...

Wwwooooohhhooooo

Rick M. said...

Woo!

Go Pens!

Docciavelli said...

WOOOOOOO!

dying alive said...

Ha ha, I love that it took the Pens 10 minutes to get a shot, and then they scored on the first one. Rags fans = stunned.

Allison said...

Yay for sydor!!!

The Goon Blogger said...

That shot deflected off too people and in. Reminds me of that NHL 09 goal posted on one of the Team Pensblog's sites. Forget which one. Ridiculous goal regardless.

Rick M. said...

Just when I thought this game was going terribly, the Pens score.

And, of all people, it was Sydor.

Got to be demoralizing for the Rags, to out play the Pens and still be behind.

Allison said...

Haha on my feed they just interviewed the staal parents and two observations:
A) jordan looks freakishly similar to his mom
B) jordan sounds freakishly similar to his father

Docciavelli said...

Jordan looks like a beast tonight. Must be because mom and dad are there.

Docciavelli said...

Started slow, but boy that became a clinic as the period went on. So far, I feel comfortable.

TheNWChica said...

Damn, I missed the goal when my mom called. I need to turn off my phone during games.

The Goon Blogger said...

Staal and Tank look real good together again tonight after looking solid against the Canes the other night.

I'd like to see Godard or Cooke go after Kalinin after he landed that hip check on Malkin. I'm sure they both noted it.

attunezero said...

anybody know what happened to the HD on comcast? 226 is still playing some lame show instead of the game =(

Rage said...

"Got to be demoralizing for the Rags, to out play the Pens and still be behind."

I don't know which game you're watching, but from where I am sitting, the Rags didn't outplay anybody. That's just my opinion o course

TheNWChica said...

Marc Staal is a defenseman? I never knew!

debrisslide said...

The Staal line is playmaking like a fucking masterpiece right now.

Carroll said...

@chica - did you see Cherry's lavender suit tonight? It matches with the Hockey fights cancer tie. Very nice.

What? Marc's a defense men? Since when..

Docciavelli said...

Love the MSG coverage. "Look at how good Sjostrom is." Right as Malkin drills him. Don't mention that Trautwig...

TheNWChica said...

@carroll: I did not, but I have seen that one before. It's actually a really pretty color.

SteveThePirate said...

WOOOO
first time I actually get to see a game, living in Korea right now. 13-hour time diff, bummer.
thanks russ!
GO PENS!

Allison said...

Yes!!!

TheNWChica said...

Come on boys!

Allison said...

I want to hug fleury

Carroll said...

What a PK. Jordan was a beast. Flower amazing!!

TheNWChica said...

ILU STEVE! ;P

Flyer Hater said...

Big save by Fleury and another, another, another, another, another, and another.

Flyer Hater said...

MAF=the antiBiron

Rage said...

@carroll-did you see grapes giving sean avery the business? Cherry played that perfectly...Brett Hull will RUE the day...lolol

The Goon Blogger said...

Textbook 5 on 3 kill right there.

Loved Orpik giving Orr some Free Candy to masticate over the intermission.

The forechecking by the Penguins in this game is giving me wood, what an effort by these guys.

debrisslide said...

The fact that the Rangers didn't score on that 5-on-3 was hilarious. Fleury made a million saves and made them look EASY AS HELL.

Flyer Hater said...

Fleury's the best goalie in hockey right now.

Allison said...

Oh my god... Sam rosen just said its a great night for hockey in new york. Garbage

Carroll said...

@rage, yes I did. He is not a fan of Avery being a big chicken! You must back up your bark with a bite...don't hide behind the refs.

Rick M. said...

Fleury = Awesome

FSN needs to mention the Staals more. I'm barely aware of them.

kstewy16 said...

FH said - "Fleury's the best goalie in hockey right now."

Second that.

TheNWChica said...

Damn you Nazzy!

Allison said...

Grrrrrrr

Docciavelli said...

garbage penalty. Prucha skated over a stick and tripped himself. 2-1.

TheNWChica said...

Oh Maxie...

kstewy16 said...

Fleury is seriously a God, but can we please stop giving up so many shots?

Allison said...

Oh MAFer

Allison said...

Textbook reason for not skating with your head down in the islander hurricane game right now

TheNWChica said...

fuck

Zach said...

fuck

SteveThePirate said...

FUCK.

Docciavelli said...

Jesus christ.

Allison said...

Fuck

fleuryous said...

Love you long time, MAF.


He's a beast.

fleuryous said...

LET'S GO PENS.


Bury one, Geno.

TheNWChica said...

Score a goal for me and your mom, Gronk!

TheNWChica said...

Sid
LeGame
Sykie

fleuryous said...

MAF is going to own this shootout.


He will.

fleuryous said...

FLEURY!

Allison said...

Common crosby... Please

Zach said...

horseshit

TheNWChica said...

Fuckity fuck fuck!

fleuryous said...

Eff the Rangers.


Fuck.

TheNWChica said...

Meh...

I'm gonna go watch the end of Les Canards until the Canucks come on. Have a good one my friends.

debrisslide said...

Ughhhhhhhhhhh.

There are no words.

Docciavelli said...

Christ. What a shitshow.

Flyer Hater said...

Crosby should never be on a shootout.

BlacknGold66 said...

Well that blows.

Nulpher said...

Fuck...

dying alive said...

The Pens need to stop sitting back with a lead in the third. This is the second time it's burned them this season and they haven't even played ten games yet.

Nice to see that the Rags' fuckwad fans cheer for their team once they tie a game instead of booing them.

Fleury is rad.

norojo said...

add that missed point to the 2 we gave up against washington. not encouring seeing all these leads slip away

The Goon Blogger said...

2 shots in the 3rd, simply disgusting.

A repeat of the choke job against Washington.

My floor is covered with Vomit.

Docciavelli said...

How many 3rd Period leads are the Pens going to blow against teams we'll be fighting with in the standings?

Guess I should be happy we got a point.

annameg said...

I'm depressed.
Must we give up in the 3rd.

Rick M. said...

Dear Pittsburgh Penguins,

A regulation NHL hockey game is 60 minutes long.

Thank you.

- Rick

SteveThePirate said...

well, guess i'll start drinking now...anything to get the poo taste outta my mouth

fleuryous said...

Fleury is still a beast.


Shootouts make me jumpier than a virgin at a prison rodeo.


Bleh.


Go Pens.

Flyer Hater said...

that's 2 blown leads against 2 division opponents this year.

Rage said...

@fleuryous- I'm with you. I can barely stand to watch the shots. On a happier note, the "Hawks just went up 2-1 on the Wangs.

Flyer Hater said...

Puredouchebag84 on LGP or "The Big K" on here, put your head in a blender and turn the on switch. A gem from the LGP game thread.

"This team is an absolute joke right now."

You are a retarded little twirp.

Flyer Hater said...

whatev, getting a point out of MSG is still pretty good.

Flyer Hater said...

Pens aren't making the playoffs.

Flyer Hater said...

Points in 7 out of 9 games...

Rage said...

@FH-I'll take it, besides we got to watch extra hockey and I'm ok with that. Seems to be an awful lot of OTs this season across the board. I'd compare but I'm a lazy stat bastard...as far as "The Big K"....well, Toronto or Anaheim could always use new fans.

Just sayin.

debrisslide said...

There was no reason for the GTG to happen in the first place.

Therrien knows. He'll make them learn to man up.

KaylaJ said...

bummer, but i guess i should feel happy we got out of MSG being that outshot, forgetting to play the finaly 8 seconds, and giving them a full 5 on 3, with at least one point. while its fun to make fun of the rangers, o henry is still good in the nets

i'll also feel good that TB is losing 3-0 to SJ right now

xocharmedchildox said...

While this feeling really, REALLY sucks right now, I just remember a few times this happened last year in the first few games and that season turned out pretty well. Some that i remember were against colorado and the isles and we didnt even get a point out of those. I still think everyone needs to learn how to play with each other and get aclimated.

Not jumping off any bridges just yet.


gopens

Help Me Rhonda said...

Everyone's already said it, so...

Vomit.

Flyer Hater said...

I think everyone needs to learn that the Rangers are a pretty good fucking team with an outstanding goalie who play well in front of their home fans. You know, Zherdev isn't a 4th line checker, he has a pretty good shot. It sucks now, putting getting a point out of MSG is still pretty good.

fleuryous said...

Why are people calling the team a joke 9 games into the season?


You, friends, are the joke.


And with that I retire.


The Pitt loss to Rutgers has left me vulnerable. haha. Now, that was a game that I almost cried watching. Ugh.

This loss sucks, but...we have 70ish other games, I think? YEEEEEEEEEP, JUST CHECKED KTHANKS.

KaylaJ said...

at least we're not TB. shut out by SJ & Brian Boucher.

fleuryous said...

Oh, and one more post script:

If Penn State wins tonight, I'm going to birth a child of pure rage to gnaw off JoePa's nose.


Goodnight.

debrisslide said...

I am just feeling an urgent need for someone to steamroll the Rangers. I hate seeing them at the top of the division like that, haha.

Carroll said...

I hope Brandon Sutter is okay after that hit.

He's going for a catscan right now.

Gotta keep your head up going through the neutral zone especially when reaching for the puck.

Flyer Hater said...

I bet Sabourin would have stopped Sjostrom in the shootout....

Susan Burghart said...

For crapping crappy craps of crap. I hate staying up late when it involves losing like this shit with a dumbass goal with just a few seconds left. Bull shit.

I'm not worried about the Pens but losing like this just pisses me off.

Oh well. Onward and upward.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Kayla J, the Sharks are a good team, watch what you say because we play them, and TB still doesn't have defense! *shakes fist angrily*

Looks like a bad night for me. TB, one win doesn't make you anything ... now the Flyers have more wins than you *shakes head*

At least Staal is starting to play better ... a guy consistently in front of that net would like really nice, though.

I hope Penn State kicks Ohio State's ass tonight. WOoo!!

Anna. said...

Nice to see the Wings down by 2.

Flyer Hater said...

I'm over it.

debrisslide said...

FH, you're over everything.

KaylaJ said...

ihk, they can be a good team when they are on all cylinders, but they can be such a roller coaster too. i only hope tuesday nabakov plays a game like he did vs Philly the other night where almost everything went past him. of course, i just hope the ending is different where we win

BlacknGold66 said...

Jesus, people need to chill.

The Pens looked pretty damned good (except for the 3rd) after kicking ass in the 3rd of the last game. Flower was UNREAL as usual.

Rags got a good goal with 9.1 left on the clock. We just couldn't bury the EN.

M'eh.

I'm over it as well.

Go Pen(n)s(tate)

Flyer Hater said...

"FH, you're over everything."

Don't get too high or get too low.

LargeTurkey said...

That was horrible. I had stupid Bridge and Tunnel guido douche bags going nuts all around me at the game. I don't understand why they aren't Devils or Islanders fan. Every time Crosby touches the puck, they go crazy about how he is a whiner. How the hell did Lunquist make that save where it deflected and was heading top corner. Crosby has to BURY that empty netter.

Rachael said...

I think you should just change your name to "Hater".

Kthanks.

Puke.

The Goon Blogger said...

In the long run, this game is irrelevant, we were mud against divisional opponents last year save for the end of the season but then we beat the shit out of the Rangers and Flyers to to get to the SCF.

No one cares. This time last year I wanted Mark Recchi dead.

That said, Pens killer instinct right now is soff. I can understand Zherdev is pretty awesome (I usually trade for him in my NHL franchise mode, especially now since my main man never to play for the Pens, Alex Mogilny, is gone). But that doesn't change the fact that the Penguins had TWOOOOOO shots in the third period. Inexcusible. We're don't win by trying to not lose. We're not the Devils.

The Goon Blogger said...

Also, fh, your ability to dominate all of C-Blog continues to amaze me. Cheers good sir.

Flyer Hater said...

"I think you should just change your name to "Hater".

Kthanks.

Puke."

What the hell is that supposed to mean? Just because I don't want to trade everyone, fire the coach, jump off a building, or want the team to move after a loss makes me crazy apparently. Some of you who take these early season losses so fucking seriously need to chill the fuck out. I punched my bed after Crosby was stopped, I let off some steam and now I'm over it. Letting it linger is fucking retarded.

I guess I'm a "Hater"

Flyer Hater said...

"No one cares. This time last year I wanted Mark Recchi dead."

I still want Mark Recchi dead.

The Goon Blogger said...

It's like fh is the one sane guy in the mental hospital, and everyone else thinks he's crazy because he's normal.

The Goon Blogger said...

"I still want Mark Recchi dead."

I figure playing for TB and the Mullet is a fate worse then death. Melrose couldn't win a Cup when he had more talent on his team then the 70s Soviet National Squad. What does he expect to get outta this bunch? I'm satisfied with Recchi's doom.

debrisslide said...

Whoa flyer hater.

Keep dominating.

Flyer Hater said...

The Pens lost but I just ate a turkey, swiss, and bacon sandwich and I'll probably bang my girlfriend tomorrow.

Flyer Hater said...

Good point Goon, Recchi playing in TB is like being in eternal purgatory.

The Goon Blogger said...

"The Pens lost but I just ate a turkey, swiss, and bacon sandwich and I'll probably bang my girlfriend tomorrow."

I want this on the welcome mat to my home.

Flyer Hater said...

"Whoa flyer hater.

Keep dominating."

Did I ever stop?

BlacknGold66 said...

I sincerely hope you weren't referring to me FH.

You know who's the bitch and who's the butch in this relationship. Don't act like it's different.



Btw, Olive Garden or Popeye's tomorrow night. Take it or leave it.

Flyer Hater said...

"Btw, Olive Garden or Popeye's tomorrow night. Take it or leave it."

I think it's time we see other people, as a matter of fact, I've had a long-running affair with goon behind your back for some time now.

The Goon Blogger said...

It's true, we eloped while no one was looking.

Pittsburgh fans though declared our relationship over when we disagreed the first time though, so there's hope.

Flyer Hater said...

"Pittsburgh fans though declared our relationship over when we disagreed the first time though, so there's hope."

I want that on my doormat.

Carroll said...

Anyone watching the Edmonton-Vancouver game? These teams are going insane right now.
2nd of second 3-3.

Flyer Hater said...

Pittsburgh fans would have declared WW II over after Pearl Harbor.

The Goon Blogger said...

As an aside, I have to kill kimberlass. Just sayin'.

Kimberlass said...

Awww, look who's sad that he can't talk...

:'(

debrisslide said...

As an aside, I think cblog is getting way too dramatic and some of us should be traded to LGP for "future considerations."

Flyer Hater said...

largeturkey for a bag of pucks.

The Goon Blogger said...

I'm literally in tears right now.

BlacknGold66 said...

rwarner for a box of tape

Kimberlass said...

I am awesome.

Flyer Hater said...

BNG for a Red Lobster's coupon.

BlacknGold66 said...

FH put on waivers.

The Goon Blogger said...

"BNG for a Red Lobster's coupon."

Bigger steal then Ron Francis, Ulf Samuelsson, and Grant Jennings for Jeff Parker, Zarley Zalapski, and John Cullen.

Seriously, have you had those biscuits? I could eat those for every meal for the rest of my life.

Flyer Hater said...

Goon, I wish I could sit down, eat the biscuits and leave. BNG will come up with a witty comment here and there but biscuits are batting .1000.

debrisslide said...

Red Lobster cheesy biscuits. . .probably more delicious than BNG, and are great for winning faceoffs.

Flyer Hater said...

Cheesy biscuits are the Mike Zigomanis of appetizers.

BlacknGold66 said...

I got nothing.

Those biscuits have me by a long-shot.


And I can't win a faceoff to save my ass.

Looks like I'll be hamming it up over at LGP for awhile.

I will make my start here...

"Fucking Pens are TERRIBLE! Giving up a 2 goal lead. Fire MT. Fucking send Sid down to the Baby Pens so he can work on his shootout skills. FUCK!"

Flyer Hater said...

"I got nothing."

If I had a nickel for everytime he's said that on our dates...

BlacknGold66 said...

Dude, you're just upset because I started answering the phone "PUDDY" instead of saying "Hi, how was your day, etc. etc."

Flyer Hater said...

Feels like an Arby's night.

Dan 2 said...

Question, how long until we can acknowledge Malkin as the team's best player?

Flyer Hater said...

When Fleury is traded.

stokes said...

yuck.


MAF is a beast. He's the only reason they were in that game.

I don't understand the strategy of not producing offense once the Pens get a lead. Getting outshot like they did in the third period is unreal.

Not worried in the least, but a game like that is frustrating.



Face it, FH owns CBlog. I love it.

The Goon Blogger said...

dan 2 for someone that will finish fh's plays for him

Stoosh said...

In case it went without being posted, Hey, Brandon...get your head up.

Raybin said...

Holy crap, flyer hater is dominating tonight. No need for me.

So, a few brief comments:

Vomit.

Eh. If this is still happening in December, get back to me and I'll panic then.

Fleury is a top 5 goaltender.

All hail Zigomanis.

Henrik Lundqvist is pretty fucking good. Evgeni Nabokov is better and he's up Tuesday night. So if you're one of those ready to kill yourself after this loss, you might want to pre-tie that noose in advance for quick accessibility.

megz590 said...

I didn't think this night could suck anymore, then I read that Hossa scores the game winner against the blackhawks.

brett said...

fuck you, Hossa. Go Hawks!


I'm way past drunk, and i stopped drinking 2 hours ago. Hoboken is awesome. Go Pens! you'llg et those rangers when it truely counts

debrisslide said...

raybin, Lundqvist was fine giving us that 2-0 lead. It was our offense shutting itself down in the third that lost us the game--not their goaltending. I'm not worried at all.

jefe p said...

i just finished watching the game now.

fuck.
