GAMEDAY [14] -- NEW YORK ISLANDERS

[islanders.<span class=
4-8-1

We hate a lot of things in life.
But seeing the Islanders 6 times a year instead of 8 is not one of them.

It's not that the Islanders are good.
It just seems like they're a waste of time.

The big story is the return of Fedo and Satan to Long Island.
Because it's the only thing keeping this intra-divisional rivalry alive anymore.


Therrien's thoughts on Semin/Crosby. PG

"Is he talking about the youngest guy to get 100 points in the history of the National Hockey League?" Therrien said yesterday. "Is he talking about the [second-youngest] guy to win the Hart Trophy and [the youngest] leading scorer? Is he talking about the youngest captain in the history of the National Hockey League, and to bring his team to the Stanley Cup final?"

"That's all I have to say."



Ryan Whitney is skating again. PG


Just a rhetorical question.
Anyone else realize Mark Eaton didn't play against the Oilers?
'Cause we didn't. BOX SCORE

of Scuderi and Ty Conklin's appearance in SI's Pop Culture Grid.

Speaking of hot chicks, we are all highly critical of what the NHL does.
But they do get some things right.

Especially when you review the decision to give Carrie Millbank the mic on "The Hockey Show." NHL


[Thanks to Matty W for the pic]

Here is the latest "Hockey Show" from NHL.com.


Never thought we'd want to have sex with a woman in a Rangers shirt, but things have changed.
Wow.

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



We don't like throwing Lincolns around on Penguin game nights, but it's the weekend.

[<span class=[<span class=

Kevin Weekes is 0-6-0 against Detroit. He has given up 15 goals in three starts in the Motor City.
Over is 5.5.

[Picture+3.<span class=
Something is fishy about the value of the over, but whatev.

We really don't want to take this next one but it is to interesting to pass up.

[stlouis.png][losangeles.png]

St. Louis has to get a win.
They are the slight dog.
Taking them to win.

If he's the real deal, he'll get another one.

GO PENS.

Flyer Hater said...

Playing in Nassau Coliseum is like playing at the local bingo hall.

Russ Tundra said...

I agree with the hot chick in the Rangers shirt comment.

Hip said...

Someone is coming in for pre-term labor. And I was sooooooooooo hoping I'd have some time to watch the game. What the crap. Cheer for me.

Blah.

BlacknGold66 said...

The Pens should be able to roll over the Isles.

Just like Penn State is rolling over Iowa.....

...

VOMIT

Let's Go Pens!!!

Kimberlass said...

I'm starting the begging for a feed now.

Any leads?

iPuck said...

i cant find a live feed of the game anywhere, can some one help me please?

Kat said...

I hear this channel is streaming the game

http://www.justin.tv/bsod404

PenguinsExperience.com said...

This seems like one of those games the Penguins should win easily, and then something goes wrong.

I hope I can find a good stream.

PenguinsExperience.com said...

This is another stream I've found, I'm not sure if it will work:
http://atdhe.net/live-tv-251.html

Kimberlass said...

Thanksssss for the streams, guys.

The Goon Blogger said...

Satan gets a hattrick and then pees on his former team.

iPuck said...

thanks for the links guys

Allison said...

Ummmm so fedotenko is so nice... The whole time they're practicing he's flipping pucks to the fans and made sure to give the fan who was holding up his old islander jersey something. And gino's got a case of the giggles tonight, smiling and laughing the whole time they were warming up. Hal gill is a beast already and the puck hasn't even dropped... And Tanger is the clean up guy,he had to clean the pucks out of the next after every exercise.

johnnylaw said...

Even if Satan doesn't score tonight, at least he's still on the Pens. Satan was definitely a Penguin killer, especially for guys who aren't quite at the superstar level.

I would love to see Satan act like he was lifting his leg to piss on the goal post, that'd be sweet. Or he could do the bull dance, Happy Gilmore style.

Do it.

PenguinsExperience.com said...

Nice, both streams work. The JustinTV stream is FSN Pittsburgh, the other one is the Islanders network.

Lloyd said...

Feel like talking about the game (as well as other random stuff during intermission)?

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


PensBlogChatBlog is where the party is at.

kstewy16 said...

Bets are in. Ukraine's Prime Minister is banging.
Satan not playing for the Isles=Win.

Go Pens.

dying alive said...

Ryan Whitney is skating again? WOOO!

I take full credit. I've been rocking the Whitney t-shirt at almost every game so far this season.

PenguinsExperience.com said...

The JustinTV feed is awesome.
You can hear the announcers during the commercials.

Steigy was humming the national anthem.

Chris said...

who the fuck is this old man jobbing crosby saying he shouldnt be captain....

Kat said...

WTF? Some joke on the Islander broadcast said Sid should never have been Captain because it's too much and is bringing down his play? Put down the crackpipe...

SexyChubbs said...

The Islander announcer was just talking about how giving Bing the C was completely incorrect. He disagrees strongly with such a dumb move.

Nulpher said...

True... The Islander's weapon against the Penguins is now a Penguin..

Hah.

SexyChubbs said...

I'm glad other people heard that. I just stared at the television, mouth agape wondering who the fuck that clown was.

I like that the announcer at the rink made it a point to completely disagree with that ass-clown.

SexyChubbs said...

Shit...I hope Malkin is alright.

Kat said...

Shit...Geno better be ok.

Allison said...

Ummmm malkin just went to the bench clearly in pain...hope he comes back

Kat said...

sexychubbs, get out of my head. haha.

Allison said...

And it sucks so bad here on LI that they don't even bother to have someone come sing the national anthem

Allison said...

Relief city- malkin just went back on

johnnylaw said...

I can't believe how shitty the support is there. They should be one of the teams to relocate along with Florida and Phoenix.

BlacknGold66 said...

I've been to louder AHL games.

FreeCandyVan44 said...

watching the isles telecast. they talk more about the penguins than they do the isles. even the announcers hate the islanders.

SteveThePirate said...

thanks kat, good feed.
Geno seems to be o-tay.
LOL @ the announcers during commercials.
GO PENS!

SexyChubbs said...

kat - great minds think alike. However, truth be told, if you're thinking like me, you may want to worry.

freecandy - I'm noticing that too. It's not just Satan; it's all the Pens. They hate their team.

FreeCandyVan44 said...

yeah i would hate the isles too. they havent been all that great since the 80s

Karina said...

So Pitt won today, PSU lost, and I hope the Pens pull out a win.


Grant's the man--it should work out. haha.

Rocking the Goligoski shirt--score one, Gogo!

Go Pens.

Kat said...

Well, that one was weird...

Karina said...

Good goal, Gill. haha.


Ah well, we'll get it back.

brett said...

Penn State, once again, kills my inner child.

I lost a lot of money on that one.

Trying to get it all back on a Pens win tonight. If they lose, it'll be the worst weekend ever.

Carroll said...

I think it's great you can hear the announcers during the breaks.
thanks justintv.

Kat said...

omg, I just tuned into the FSN feed. LMAO @ Potash. Hilarious. I'm totally keeping this on. It's better then the center ice feed.

Carroll said...

okay, ooookkkkkaaayyyyy?!?!

Kat said...

I'm rolling from that pre-interview shenanigans. My god. "Happy happy happy. Danny and Scyds, Danny and Scuds." haha.

Kat said...

Steigy and Errey banterng about toast and Hot Chocolate! Damn, this is great.

TheNWChica said...

This shit is gold tonight!

bayonetwork said...

haha. "dirty little secret..."

Lloyd said...

the justin.tv feed is cash money tonight.

/still has the game on the tv though

bayonetwork said...

i wanna hear more stories about steigy's burnt toast.

Karina said...

Shit, I hope Malkin's okay...

Kat said...

ugh, malkin's not n the bench...greaaatttt

Karina said...

TKKKKKKKKKKKK!

bayonetwork said...

KENNEDY

Pooch said...

Tyler Kennedy AKA Scrappy Doo buries it!

Karina said...

TNTK...I really like that nickname, dammit. haha

TheNWChica said...

Scrappy Doo is at least a little better than the Little Tiger. That Tiger names makes Steigy sound like a predator.

bayonetwork said...

i have a feeling we might see Gogo get one tonight.

Kat said...

GENO. oh thank god!

Pooch said...

I just remember him getting into that fight during the Philly series last year and thinking that Scrappy Doo (while an annoying sidekick) was a little guy with a ton of fight in him.

Kat said...

Mr. Potato Heaaad. OMG. Danny Potash owns me. Seriously...

TheNWChica said...

No no Pooch, Scrappy is good....

And OMG they're such DORKS!!!! I love it!

Steve In Denver said...

I'm watching the game over the Justin TV link. The audio that happens during the commercial breaks is priceless. Potash is a freak.

TheNWChica said...

Rusty speaks English well because he played junior in freaking Iowa and his wife is American. Duh!

Pooch said...

Did the Pens just lag on that one?

Karina said...

Someone should have been there, for God's sake.

fleuryous said...

Okay, "karina" is actually me...my housemate never signed off her gmail.


whooooops.

Allison said...

Oh jesus... The isles fans are talking about jordan staal and how nasty he is. And one turns to the other and says, "you know marc staal from the rangers, they're brothers." And then the other one said " yea did you know there are 4 of them?!?!?" omg

fleuryous said...

barf.

Kat said...

Jesus...

Pooch said...

Look on the bright side, Whitney and Gonch will be back eventually.

bayonetwork said...

what the shit.

kstewy16 said...

Mark Eaton will not be in the lineup next game. Thats two goals that he was completely out of position for. It's sad when I'd rather have Sydor in the lineup...

fleuryous said...

Eaton was playing ghost on that play.


I'd say he did it pretty well.

Kat said...

STALLSY!!!

bayonetwork said...

SSSTTTTAAAAAAAALLLLL

kstewy16 said...

Did Staal just score.... omg.

rickyaustin33 said...

Staaaaaaaaaaaaaaaal!!!!

fleuryous said...

WOOOOOOOOOO GRONK!

SteveThePirate said...

STAAL!!!!!!

brett said...

STAAL

thenetranger56 said...

Horay for sh*tty ice Jordan....

kstewy16 said...

Here we go boys, now lets make this look like a Penguins Isles game should.

fleuryous said...

The lines are now forming for "Staal ball lickings"--I told you he's clutch.


Jooooookes. haha


YES, GRONK.

Pooch said...

If this is the beginning of a streak for Staal I'm all for it.

fleuryous said...

DUde, get the fuck off Sabu.


Jesus.

fleuryous said...

Tanger, I fucking love you.

kstewy16 said...

Pens can only have so many chances before they score...This is the one. I'm saying a Malkin slap shot in the beginning of the 3rd.

Kat said...

Yes. More Potash antics!

Matt said...

Let me just say i hate living in Philly and not getting FSN :(

Allison said...

Ok, can't lie, the islanders have a really cool machiene to shoot tshirts into the crowd. It shoots like 10 at a time. I've never seen one at any other arenas I've been to.

wilsmith said...

I'm waiting for the obligatory "yeah but he almost missed that" comment.

Allison said...

And my friend and I are discusing the ratio of islanders fans to penguins fans. Our decision is that is somewhere beween a 3-1 to a 6-1. Pretty sick. And when the pens score... This place gets loudddddd. It's great

fleuryous said...

Okay, Staal is playing like a true beast.

Kat said...

Word, he seems to have found his stride this game. The goal gave him confidence which is really nice to see from him.

kstewy16 said...

Holy Legame!!!

Kat said...

All these unfinished chances are so damn aggravating.

kstewy16 said...

GOGOGOGOGOGOGO!!!!!

Kat said...

Whoa, Gogo shut me up. ha.

Pooch said...

Scrappy with the redirect...solid.

Chris said...

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

kstewy16 said...

Tyler kennedy Hatrick????

fleuryous said...

GOALigoski and TNTK=two of my favorites.

I KNEW I wore my Goligoski shirt for a reason.

TOO GOOD.

Matt said...

KENNNNNEDDDDYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!! Hey I can even get into it following on ESPN!!!!!!!

fleuryous said...

Staff, I request you reuse my TK/Speedy Gonzales photoshop.


Thank you very much. haha

kstewy16 said...

Oh my Gogo gets an assist and all of a sudden he's paul coffey...

Matt said...

Zigomanis.....what a pickup

Kat said...

Shootout...barf.

kstewy16 said...

You know its bad when the Penguins announcers are complaining about bad ice...Edmonton's announcers would be one thing, but when Pittsburgh complains? You have shit ice.

Chris said...

Why is Crosby in the shootout and not Legame....

kstewy16 said...

Tanger does to many dekes to be effective in shit ice.

SteveThePirate said...

sabu is clearly on fire, melting the ice, rolling around, making rediculous saves.

Kat said...

Damn Sabu!

Chris said...

@kstewy16

point taken.

kstewy16 said...

hahaha that was ridiculous hahaha.

Matt said...

1-0 Pens!!!!!

Matt said...

Come on Sabu............YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!

brett said...

INCONCLUSIVE VIDEO

Zach said...

cant be a goal

kstewy16 said...

WOOOOO!!!! Go Pens!! Kennedy's a beast!!!! 2 points is 2 points, even in an ugly as hell game!!

Matt said...

no goal!!!!!! HUGE comeback win for the Pens!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kat said...

Whoo! Weird game, good win though

Kat said...

TK Got pied!!! hahaha

kstewy16 said...

haha, TK is a beast, he sticks around and answers another minutes worth of questions after being shaving creamed in the face!

The Goon Blogger said...

Pens lockerroom=Adorable.

TK getting pied, unreal.

Also, what the fuck was that game even about, weird city. We'll take the two points, Pens still aren't making the playoffs.

The Goon Blogger said...

Also, I need to apologize to Zigomanis. I called his pickup a reach by Shero. I was dead and completely wrong. Zigomanis has been fucking balls out awesome for us and has been since his arrival.

Flyer Hater said...

The next game in Long Island should be played on the parking lot outside.

fleuryous said...

Zigo is clutch.


TK, STAAL (OH YEAH), GOALigoski...unreal games for all.


Sabu was lights-out in the shootout.


WOOOOOOOOO, Go Pens.

Next stop: HOCKEYTOWN.

TK getting pied was awesome...he's such a beast.

Flyer Hater said...

How will the Pens ever make up for the loss of Adam Hall, there's certainly no 4th line center out there who can win faceoffs and chip in offensively when it's needed...

Flyer Hater said...

It just makes it so much more awesome that anyone with common sense can conclude that the puck was over the goal line, but there's no way of proving it.

WOOO

fleuryous said...

And I miss Biz Nasty out there.

fleuryous said...

By the way, I don't know if anyone's following College football on ESPN, but...

the Florida-'Bilt game is just absolutely ridiculous.


I vote that Florida puts on their practice squad, because they're basically embarrassing Vanderbilt.

fleuryous said...

And I'm going to post three in a row and say...


"Dr. Grant for the win."


Thank you.

xocharmedchildox said...

... what? Noone is screaming to have jordan traded anymore? haha

yay pens =]

Kat said...

Sean Avery is squirting Gaterade across the benches at Jody Shelly right now. Doesn't he know Shelly will end his life? That's a fight I'd like to see.

jhorn said...

i officially apologize for my "trade stall" comment the other game
great game, sick goal

The Goon Blogger said...

Oh for fucks sake. People need to pick a side with Staal. If you're in the trade Staal camp, one goal shouldn't change your mind and make you jump ship. If you're in the keep him camp, don't rub it in the face of everyone who wants to trade him. Staal still only has one more goal then Rob Scuderi. Have some principle people!

fleuryous said...

That's because Sean Avery has no other real talent.


OUCH, WAIT WHAT?

jhorn said...

im not changing my mind over one goal.
i read the comments after mine on the other post and realized i spoke too soon and i should have given him a chance

debrisslide said...

Officially the weirdest game ever. Weird goals, weird shit happening, weird fucking shootout. It was painful to watch, actually. Why I wanted to actually sit and watch the whole thing is beyond me.

Scuderi is on-pace to have as many points as Staal this season. I'm still hoping for his multi-goal season. JUST SAYING.

fleuryous said...

So Good Will Hunting is on TV, and Ben Affleck looks A LOT like Ryan Whitney in this movie...and they're from Boston.


Ridic. haha

kstewy16 said...

I'm still on the trade staal team...
Why?
1.)He doesn't want to play 3rd line shut down center.
2.)I don't think he has the skill to play 2nd line wing, but if he does, because he is also a very good backchecker, the pens won't be able to afford him.

So IF Shero can sign him by the trade deadline for a couple years at cheap money, cool, but if not, ship his ass outta here.

My trade Staal rants have nothing to do with his good or bad play.
And lastly, remember people, 1 good game doesn't mean he is off of his offensive slump. Give it a couple before you crown him with a scoring title.

stokes said...

To expound upon the point that Staff made about Eaton:

He's playing like shit. You want to job Staal, make him the scapegoat this year, be my guest. But Mark Eaton has been absolutely horrific this year. Now, i realize that his knee was rebuilt and that he hadn't played NHL hockey in 10 months. But, he should be rounding into game shape by now, and honestly, it looks like he's forgotten how the hell to play defense. Luckily, the Pens team defense hasn't suffered too much because of it, but he has been on the ice for some huge goals so far this season.

Eaton is not the problem for the Pens "woes" right now, but it is disappointing for a guy who played so well before to have such a big drop off. I'm hoping he gets it together.

kstewy: I like Staal, and i think he does (mostly) good things on the ice and will become a heck of a player, but i agree with you. I can't see him sticking around whether it be his choice or management's decision.

The Goon Blogger said...

Once Whitney gets back we'll probably not hear Eaton's name again unless something drastic happens. Hell Sydor deserves another shot, he was a +3 against Edmonton.

stokes said...

I agree, but what do you do with that $2 mil? I don't know anything about salaries and the cap and stuff, but they're paying him alot of money to suck right now.

I don't understand why Sydor was out tonight, after having two strong games. HCMT usually doesn't mess with the lineup when they're winning. I, along with most of us, i'm sure, found that to be an odd personnel move....

jefe p said...

i think with sydor wanting out, maybe those were just showcase games. we cant keep eaton out too long anyhow, hes our guy til 2010.

jefe p said...

So Good Will Hunting is on TV, and Ben Affleck looks A LOT like Ryan Whitney in this movie...and they're from Boston.


Ridic. haha



omg i just wrote the same thing in my journal!

xocharmedchildox said...

Goon- not pushing it in anyone's face. Its just from observing from one post to another that the talk on staal does a complete 360 turn. Its kinda interesting but whatev.

brett said...

poor Turco cost his team a point with 30s left in the Shark Tank tonight. Go Stars :(

Kat said...

Good ol' Turco. Won that one for us. Thanks buddy.

PenguinsExperience.com said...

Definitely a weird game.

Secondary scoring is what made the team successful last season so it's good to see people like Kennedy, Staal, Cooke and Zigomanis have good games on a night when Crosby and Malkin didn't score.

The bad news is we could be heading to Detroit with Sid and Geno injured.

Aubrey said...

Fleuryous, what are you talking about? Sean Avery has other talents....he makes for one hell of a Vogue intern, I hear! ;) haha

debrisslide said...

Pens were the only Atlantic Division team to win a game tonight, so we're sitting pretty at #2 for the time being.

I love stats before I go to bed. Woooop.
