GAMENIGHT [4] -- FLYERS



[Picture+4.png]



7:30

4-5 months ago, all we heard about was Ryan Malone/RJ Umberger being from Pittsburgh.
Now we don't have to hear about either of them.
That's what this game is all about.

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


Sykora in the lineup tonight. PENS


The Pens will "debut" their third jersey at a November 15th home game
against, guess who, the Buffalo Sabres. TRIB

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

ROBERT S. sent along the YouTube video of Alexei Cherapanov's final moments.


It's just a sickening feeling.

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

More YouTube.
Michael Peca got suspended for grabbing an official the other day. NATTY POST
Apparently, there's no solid clip of it anywhere.
This is the best we could do: It's at 1:17.


WEAK

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

We also tried looking for video of Ben Eager swinging his stick at Sean Avery.
Of course, when you search "eager avery" at YouTube, you get about 30 results for "Bridge to Terabithia." LINK


DO IT

stokes said...

Doc Holliday FTW. Nice pick, Staff.

Geno, upset about his performance saturday and excited about playing the Flyers, rips off the head of Marty Biron and shits down his neck tonight.

If you're going to the game, i wanna hear it through the broadcast....

MAAAARRR TEEEEEEEE.

Eric P. said...

Nittymakki is starting for Philly.

stokes said...

Even better.

Eric P. said...

Should be a blow-out, but we'll see..

stokes said...

I agree, Nittymakki is terrible and any way you measure it, the Pens are due for some serious offense.

tanya said...

how many ways you can misspell finnish names...

osheak234 said...

try searching for Andy Chiodo vs. Ray Emery goalie fight information and finding tons of band results of Chiodos and Emery, two bands who toured together. That took awhile to sift through.

jefe p said...

i have to leave work early (no pay), go to a bar for 2.5-3 hrs (pay up), miss half my softball games (no win).

seeing the pens play = priceless

damn you Versucks and center ice for blacking me out.


go pens!!!

Veshinfsky75 said...

If the game is broadcasted online tonight can anyone tell me the site or sites?

Antonette said...

Not only did I kick some o-chem exam ass yesterday and get a job today, but I get to watch the Pens on my television tonight. EPIC FUCKING WIN.

I moonlight as a Blue Jackets "fan" and the call on Peca is 90% bullshit. Indefinite for tapping a ref? Which is longer than boarding calls that end players seasons. It'd be different if he pummeled the guy, but he didn't. I'm not defending Peca in any way (the guy's had one too many concussions) but it's bullshit. It makes the NHL look weak.

But fuckit GO PENS.

stokes said...

Tanya,

Truthfully, we only misspelled it one way, the same way.

Secondly, no disrespect, but if it was someone we cared about, we'd spell it right(See: Pesonen, Janne).

Thirdly,The Finnish have some really hard names to spell.

My apologies.

ripney66 said...

Survery says, Sid PP goal tonight. Finally.

Veshinfsky75 said...

Thanks eric, im stuck at college with no versus.

Colin said...

Max Talbot is pumped about Antero starting tonight for sure.

tanya said...

stokes
that was kinda like joke...

Eric P. said...

Haha no problem, enjoy the game

LETS GO PENS!

J.S. said...

Looks like I'm blacked out from Gamecenter because of Versus

not good. no responses from friends on where (if anywhere) to watch the game.

Colin said...

It will be a bit sad not getting a chance to see Derian "wheels" Hatcher get lit up tonight too.

stokes said...

Tanya, I wanted to make sure i wasn't disrespecting your entire nation there, but my responses were also in a joking tone. Its tough to tell over The Gore sometimes.

Anyway, Niittymaki stinks and the Pens are going to eat him alive.

P.O. said...

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) ― After scoring only two combined goals in the last two games, the Penguins are shaking up the line combinations to start tonight's game.

KDKA's Mike Zappone reports the first three lines at this morning's skate shaped up like this:


DuPuis-Crosby-Satan
Staal-Malkin-Sykora
Fedotenko-Talbot-Kennedy


The Pens play the Philadelphia Flyers at Mellon Arena.

Game time is 7:30 p.m.

tanya said...

i usually call him as finnish hoover

and i hate this miserable black hole known as finland...

jefe p said...

wow. what a crazy mix up of lines....

BlacknGold66 said...

Bring the noise!!!!!

coffeytalk said...

Do It.

debrisslide said...

Am I the only one who thinks that tonight's lines actually sound really, really sick? Sykora is going to bury one.

fleuryous said...

fleuryous said...

Man, I'm not a huge fan of baby blue, but I do love that uniform.


I'm going to say that Skyora will bury one.

His shots have been sorely missed.

GETTIN' SYKKY WITH IT.

Flyer Hater said...

Nittymaki actually played really well against the Rangers in relief of Biron last week.

Hand of Godard said...

I'm predicting Max Talbot will score from center ice causing Nidtymakie (or however the fuck you spell) to get pulled.

dying alive said...

So if those lines are correct, does Cooke get bumped to 4th line or does he sit? Godard will definitely be in against Philly, that leaves Cooke, Bissonnette and Thomas (if you assume Zigomanis as the center). I'd guess Bissonnette since it's the Flyers?

stokes said...

FH, you know as well as i know: that guy stinks. Every dog has its day and his was yesterday.

BlacknGold66 said...

Generic Chatblog so we're not scrolling through 400 posts.

Flyer Hater said...

You could put Goldberg in net for the Flyers and still win if we have a repeat performance of Saturday night.

fleuryous said...

haha, GOLDBERG.


Almost forgot about him.


Dude's a beast.

Steve In Denver said...

I'm your huckleberry.

Go Pens

brett said...

^ Stoked

CHATBLOG

Philly played MTL Last night of course, and lost. Will they use that to motivate, or self-destruct?

On the other side of the coin, the Pens have played 2 games in the past 2,000 years. Will they be fresh and ready to go, or will they have forgotten how to ice skate?


GO PENS

Flyer Hater said...

GREAT SAVE GOLDBERG!!

Flyer Hater said...

We'll get em' Overtime!

Flyer Hater said...

Flyers, Craps, Laffs

I smell a 3-0 week.

wilsmith said...

The Chiodos is/are a good band.

Docciavelli said...

Please tell me that Godard and Biz are in the lineup. As long as Hartnell's on the ice, someone needs to be the deterrent to cheap shot city.

@FH

I'm with you. I couldn't show my face at the rink Saturday if Washington wins. I've talked my share of trash at the parents who are season tix holders. They're pretty bold these days given expectations.

Docciavelli said...

Oh, and great pick with the motivation Staff.

[I'm your huckleberry]

Flyer Hater said...

Biron has actually played pretty well against the Pens over the years with Buffalo and Philly so I'm glad Nitty is playing. It seems like half of Sid's 4 point games have been against him.

Pops Freshenmeyer said...

The Pens are going to have to work harder than they did on Saturday if they want to have a chance against Washington on Thursday night. The Caps will eat them alive if they slack off, just ask Vancouver.

Flyer Hater said...

LOL, how will we ever beat the almighty Caps.

LMAO!

Pops=Joke

christina said...

Sid is going to eat Nitty alive tonight.

2g 2a. Take it to the bank.


LETS GO PENS!!!!

Annie said...

Gary Roberts is the 8th top power forward according to the NHL network top 10 countdown.

Flyer Hater said...

If the Pens lose tonight, c-blog and LGP go into complete meltdown mode. That's the one silver lining in a loss, I always take comfort in the fact that I'm not as fucked up as the one guy out there who's making the "Let's trade Jordan Staal for Mike Knuble" thread.

Annie said...

Followed by Kevin Stevens at #7...

brett said...

oh my god.

There are seriously only 400 people at the Thrashers game at faceoff tonight. I see entire sections of lower-bowl seating with 5 people in it.

Flyer Hater said...

Atlanta could be hosting the showdown between Jesus and the anti-christ and the stadium would be half-empty.

Anna. said...

Let's Play.

Go Pens.

xuscbausp said...

dont forget about chatblog

http://www.blackcatpaintball.com/sponsoredteams/submafia/erics_stuff/pensblog/pensblogchat.htm

DO IT

Stilly said...

Let's Go Pens. Beat the tar out of those Philly assholes.

bluzdude said...

I'm ready for some puck to drop!

Stoosh said...

Mike Zappone comes through in the clutch for KDKA. Unfortunately, Mike Zappone's eyebrows were unable to confirm the fourth liners for tonight. Normally, like Smokey from Friday, Idon'tgiveafuuuuuuuck about the fourth line, but I'd love to see Bissonnette play "My Fist, Your Face" with Downie or some other Flyers punk that decides to get a little brave tonight. Bissonnette is one sandwich short of a full pic-a-nic basket, so this could be fun.

One of those Pens third jerseys with Malkin or Letang on the back would like mighty spiffy underneath the Stoosh Family Christmas tree on December 25. I'm writing this just in case Nancy Stoosh happens to be reading this.

I don't know about anyone else, but...

1. I get the feeling Crosby and the rest of the offense break out big time tonight...

2. Tyler Kennedy gets a goal so we can FINALLY hear "MISTERRRRR KENNNNNEDEEEEEEEEE!" at the arena...

3. because he's all for equal opportunity, Geno allows NNiiiittyymmaakkii a taste of the Fuck You Sandwich, and...

4. the Doc Holliday mustache and soul patch needs to make a comeback.


Why Johnny Ringo...you look like someone just...walked all over your grave.

[Say when...]

bluzdude said...

Best news of the night... NO BENINATI!!

mmmk1989 said...

oh man, we dont have gonchar or whitney?

when did this happen????????

brett said...

erm..

Whit is out until christmas or so due to foot surgery

Sarge is out until like March due to shoulder surgery.

where have you been??

Annie said...

Brett,

Sarcasm, dude.

mmmk1989 said...

i was kidding.

they already did a quick interview with sid and asked him about no gonch or whitney.

im sure every one who follows hockey knows about them being out.

mmmk1989 said...

thanks annie

vabstanggt said...

I really hate the fact that my boss here at work doesn't like sports, let alone hockey. I'm only gonna get to watch the first 15 minutes.

OOCally said...

My Predictions for the game

Malkin gets a Hat Trick and 1 assist

Crosby gets 1 Goal and 1 Assist
LeGame 1 Goal 1 Assist

Opik Gives out Free Candy..with a Hit the makes even the Pen Fans Cringe

Allison said...

Good to see versus in game form... Listing one of the lines as staal and sykora. I guess they're so good they don't even need a center.

mmmk1989 said...

staal will be playing center and wing.

thats how good he is.

satan almost got one.

mmmk1989 said...

God and Cote.

hell of a fight.

linesmen should of let em go all the way though

fleuryous said...

I goddamn love Godard.

CarlB40 said...

Godard is a man among men

thomes08 said...

Goddard > Laraque

i'm really liking him

fleuryous said...

I can't watch the game at home until like 9, so I have watch it on justin.tv...and this chatroom shit makes me want to puke in my mouth, swallow it, and repuke it.

fleuryous said...

Godard and Crosby are sharing a moment.

mmmk1989 said...

nice try max

debrisslide said...

If Max had scored on that breakaway I would be pregnant right now.

Allison said...

@mmmk1989-
:)

thomes08 said...

we've had more chances shorthanded (1) than on the PP.

We've gotta get over that soon

GO PENS!

TheNWChica said...

I'm too lazy to look...what's happened so far? I couldn't get out of work at 3:45 so I could stop to get dinner AND get home for the puck drop.

Oh, and I predict that the D will get at least 1 goal tonight.

[FreeCandy!]

pops said...

is our offense seriously this bad without malone, roberts, laraque, and ruutu???

gonchar and whit i can understand, but christ.

SexyChubbs said...

Shocker...we're getting outshot.

Good news...most of our shots have been solid chances. I'd love an offensive explosion soon. If for no other reason, so I can quit hearing about our "offensive troubles."

Allison said...

@thenwchica- well for one you missed a sick beat down by god on cote. An off the post shot by some flyer. A nice breakaway by talbot, but no dice. A mele in front of niiittiiimakkiiii.

pops said...

fedotenko is useless. he is absolutely useless.

SexyChubbs said...

I'm a little bit bitter that Richards only got a minor for his sucker-punch.

pops said...

he was whining to the ref for a good 30 seconds, and yet they call sid a whiner. fucking hypocrite cunts. i hate the flyers.

Flyer Hater said...

Until Whitney comes back, I'm hoping for middle of the pack in terms of the PowerPlay. It looks like we're playing even strength on the PP.

TheNWChica said...

Thanks Allison!

Man does that A look good on Brooksie!

SexyChubbs said...

That's what I was wondering...what the hell could he possibly whine about?! The guy was laying on the ice, so it's not like Richards was retaliating.

A Whiner and a bitch. Fuck Philly!

Allison said...

@mmmk1989- so did you hear the announcers actually just say Staal can be both a centerman and a winger? Guess that's why there's no malkin listed on their line.

F1reb1rd said...

Wow...the Pens power play is a smelly butthole these days.

Also, I realllly hope someone gets Richards back. What a punk ass he is.

Dan said...

eric godard could easily take kimbo slice

RaCHeLeYoS said...

lol @ fans booing richards...must be the new jagr to pick on :-)

mmmk1989 said...

richards was trying to get the ref to come to the box with him.

F1reb1rd said...

Reminds me of when the fans would boo Hatcher every time he had the puck. Good times.

SexyChubbs said...

He needs to channel a fist to the face.

pops said...

haha. richards just said the pens have a good powerplay. retard.

Flyer Hater said...

Booing Richards is fucking stupid.

F1reb1rd said...

Why? They boo Crosby everytime he touches the puck, they are both the team captains...

nikki said...

godard is a beast
but seriously, do we even want to win? neither team really looks like they care too much haha
we need to get MAD

RaCHeLeYoS said...

yeah..whatever firebird said. i find it actually quite hilarious :-)

Flyer Hater said...

And we call them stupid assholes when they do it, don't return the favor.

RaCHeLeYoS said...

haha....true....but i don't think we should sit back and take their shit :-)

mmmk1989 said...

nice sized crowd on hand in atlanta

F1reb1rd said...

I don't think they are assholes for booing...booing people is fun :P If they play for the other team!

mmmk1989 said...

most guys say booing does nothing to them.

some even say it encourages them to play better. (like crosby)

RaCHeLeYoS said...

so let's just hope richards doesn't play better in that case lol

nikki said...

hahaha i noticed the crowd for the atlanta game too
poor colby eh :(

mmmk1989 said...

letang had a nice hit

pops said...

YAAAAY OFFENSE!!!!

now if dupuis wasn't dupuis.

but that was refreshing

SexyChubbs said...

There is the explosion of shots I wanted to see!

Now get it in the net!

SexyChubbs said...

We may have just had more shots than we had the last two periods of the Devils game.

pops said...

niitiimaki actually not looking terrible...so far

mmmk1989 said...

another nice burst of offense.

SexyChubbs said...

Great time for a Power Play with the way we're controlling the puck.

Do it.

SexyChubbs said...

I'm not normally one of those "Shoot the puck" idiots, but damn.

dmbforum40 said...

WOW goddamn do I HATE versus... HORRIBLE commentary all around..

From inaccurate play calling and mixing up players.. to hideous banter between the announcers..
I'm watching it with the sound turned off from now on..

Ted Nugent's 'Free For All' will be on repeat for the rest of the game..

pops said...

another powerplay where the pens try to connect on 283463482347 consecutive passes just to release a shot that, in the end, is deflected

mmmk1989 said...

@sexychubbs

im in the same boat as you

debrisslide said...

THAT POWERPLAY WAS SOLID

pops said...

well, it was certainly better.

bs call on cooke.

orpik is sooo solid in his own zone. real impressed with him.

Raybin said...

Vezina = Niittymaki's

TheNWChica said...

I'm not normally a Shoot the Puck either unless they've passed it back and forth like 40 times without even hinting at a shot.

Raybin said...

You know, it's not like the Pens are passing it for their health. There are these people called "defensemen" clogging up the shooting lanes.

pops said...

the versus announcers are retards.

"pens - flyers series. the pens just had a little bit more.....to win in 5 games."

yea, just a little bit more. a tiny little bit. it was actually much closer than 4-1. versucks.

mmmk1989 said...

but sometimes you just gotta throw it at the net.

might get a lucky bounce. like elias did last game when it went off gill

TheNWChica said...

Damn those defensemen! ;)

pops said...

WHERE THE FUCK IS THE WHISTLE ON THAT!!?

dmbforum40 said...

SCUDERI = MADMAN

mmmk1989 said...

that was intense. Scuds is a beast.

pops said...

jesus. gill almost score again :)

scuds is nuts.

Annie said...

Flower was smiling like crazy after that...

Allison said...

Omg Fleury.


Now if only he could get a little offensive help

SexyChubbs said...

Holy shit!

Great penalty-killing, great chances, great game!

pops said...

oh my god. they're never scoring again.

how unlucky.

mmmk1989 said...

shoulda buried it.

BlacknGold66 said...

That's why I'm gay for Scoods.

SexyChubbs said...

Yes, sometimes the defensemen are clogging the lanes.

But, as was said, you can't score if you don't throw it at the net. There were a couple times where they just tried to make an extra pass. Satan was skating right in and could have fired a wrister.

kstewy16 said...

Finally!!!! The Pens appear to be back! They are FINALLY fighting for the puck, creating turnovers instead of turning it over, getting shots! They still haven't scored, but finishing will come, at least they are creating the chances. Hopefully they have turned the page on the last couple games and are gonna kick some ass now.

SexyChubbs said...

Sorry I was a little late on that response, but the wife needed the computer. Selfish woman...

PP Goal - This chance - Write it down.

pops said...

are you fucking kidding me? miitiimaki?

someone pop this guys bubble. because he blows.

fuck. why cant we score? why does god stop the puck from going in? is it because of satan?

SexyChubbs said...

Nevermind...if you wrote it down, erase it.

After that, I agree with Pops. Never scoring again.

pops said...

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO


GOD LOVES US!!!

GOD IS A PENS FAN

mmmk1989 said...

FREEEE CANNNNNDDYY!!!!!!!

mmmk1989 said...

FREEEE CANNNNNDDYY!!!!!!!

thomes08 said...

ORRRRRRRPIIIIIKKKK for HART!

SexyChubbs said...

YYYYAAAA!!!!

Bubble popped.

I didn't mean that whole erasing thing!

Way to put it on the net!!

kstewy16 said...

GOAL!!!!! BROOKSIE!!!!! Pens are FINALLY looking like the Pens we all know and love.

TheNWChica said...

See...I told you! Fiesta Piñata time!!

mmmk1989 said...

maybe scuds and orpik should be on our top powerplay

SexyChubbs said...

He is a goal-scoring machine!

Obviously, that much deserved "A" has made him an offensive powerhouse.

debrisslide said...

Brooksie just made my life.

Allison said...

Props to the person who called a goal be the D earlier.


And remember last year when they were having a contest to see who was gonna be the last one to score a goal? Well,orpik and scuderi decided to get it out of the way nice and early this year

pops said...

i gotta give props to goligoski on the blueline on the PP. he kept a bunch of pucks that were sure as hell close to being cleared. he is looking real solid.

facebook friend him.

pops said...

wlecome to pittsburgh Zigomanis

Annie said...

ZIGGY!!!!!

pops said...

what a pass.

Allison said...

Hell yes!!!

demondg1 said...

ZIGGY 2.0!

SexyChubbs said...

Great goal!

Ziggy!!!!!

kstewy16 said...

ZIGGY!
1st line
godard cooke ziggy
Brooksie Scuds
Offensive powerhouse

mmmk1989 said...

who needs ruutu and laraque?

johnny said...

Mr. Kennedy and the Greek dude score! What happy days!

David said...

I'm glad to see that amazing pair of tits has returned to the spot behind the visitor's bench.

TheNWChica said...

Scuds and LeGame with assists on Brooksie's goal; and Cookie and Goddard on Ziggy's.

thomes08 said...

must come up with a nickname for him. All i can think of is Ziggy which we cant use and Big Z which is too nerdy to even explain.

SexyChubbs said...

Shit.

Shit.

Shit.

pops said...

GIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIILL!!! DAAAMN YOU.

Not a good goal to give up.

thomes08 said...

Fucking Hal with his 2nd goal of the year

SexyChubbs said...

Gill did it again?

mmmk1989 said...

Gill with another goal.

shit.

Allison said...

Gill:(

pops said...

fucking bullshit. two games in a row, gill?

SexyChubbs said...

Unbelievable.

The USS is attacking the wrong side.

Damnit!

pops said...

ugh.

CarlB40 said...

shit

SexyChubbs said...

FUCK!

FUCK!

FUCK!

Damnit.

thomes08 said...

FUCK. My life is over

mmmk1989 said...

see what happens when you throw it at the net?

Annie said...

UGH, FUCK.

Sickening.

SexyChubbs said...

Excuse my language. Wow.

That's not how I wanted to end the period.

RaCHeLeYoS said...

lol richards would.

pops said...

what a bunch of bullshit to give up. way to fuck up the last minute of the period. goddamn it. and just when we thought things were looking up.

Flyer Hater said...

Pathetic Fucking Display

demondg1 said...

BALLS.

Dan said...

my mom needs to quit yelling at me for swearing during hockey games. seriously.

debrisslide said...

We were looking totally money. And the Flyers look like shit. WE LET THEM TIE IT ON TOTALLY BULLSHIT GOALS.

mmmk1989 said...

i like the new SAW commercial.

WWJD

anyone else expect to see WWGRD follow it up?

SexyChubbs said...

Sickening, Pathetic Display, Fuck up the last minute...

Ok. Let's see here. Can we just all step off of the bridge for a second? Let's rationalize.

We showed signs of our normal offense. We created opportunities, which eventually led to goals. We're actually putting the puck on net. Our defense is struggling, but we're missing key men. They'll get it.

Fuck it...I'm jumping.

dmbforum40 said...

Great interview with Mikey Z. coming up in a few minutes..
"It all started with God down low and Cookie found me in front and I was lucky enough to find the back of the net.."
Gotta love it!

SexyChubbs said...

@ Dan -

I was just thinking the same thing about my wife. She yells from the other room everytime she hears a deafening F Bomb drop. It doesn't help the anger.

mmmk1989 said...

she should have asked Zigomanis what we should call him, seeing how he used nicknames during the interview

johnnylaw said...

Last minute was sickening since the Pens pretty much dominated the rest of the period. Lots of chances for Malkin and Dupuis, they need to bury those, I'm banking on Malkin to do so in the final frame.

The PP definitely looks a bit better and there were the great role player goals from the Candy Man and Ziggy Stardust. They definitely need to play the "Candyman" song when he gets a goal or gets a fight or is just handing out free candy.

Flyer Hater said...

Whatever, we're dominating and Nittymaki is reverting into suckmode. We'll be fine.

TheNWChica said...

Yeah...what is wrong with Ziggy?

Dan said...

@ sexychubbs - no it doesn't. nothing helps the anger but a little cussing. i missed one game all year last year, you think she would be used to me yelling "shit," "god dammit," "dick," and something with "ass" or "douche" in it

pops said...

i love each and everyone of the penguins, but i seriously need to reconsider it once particular players start costing the team games.

and i know its unlucky, but 2 games in a row? in the final minutes of periods?? jesus!

johnnylaw said...

Also they need to play something dark and demonic when Šatan scores, anything by Slayer would suffice.

Other random note, I'd love to see God throw down again, that was a quality heavy-weight show of fisticuffmanship.

satownsend said...

Wow, I JUST realized with have Satan AND God on our team.

TheNWChica said...

Time to turn?
