GAMEDAY [18] -- MINNESOTA WILD

[Picture+14.png]

10 - 4 - 1 -- 21 PTS

They've played 15 games this season; least in the NHL.
And they've only given up 30 goals this year.

PUCK THE MEDIA is doing a live blog for the game.


The Pens play Minnesota about as often as John Goodman sees his own penis.
Last season in October, the Pens won 4-2.
Crosby had a rare breakaway goal.

OUR RECAP

Dr. Grant was pissed that we pulled him after two consecutive victories.

I have to say...I was a little upset that Grant was neglected.


And I'll post this again, because I feel like it:

Goligoski, show them what's up.

Dan the Man Sabourin will block more shots than 50 Cent's jaw.


GO.
PENS.

Hip said...

Home from clinic just in time.

Go Pens.

Steve In Denver said...

Minnesota is always a well coached, disciplined team. The Pens will need to bring it for at least 27 1/2 minutes to get the W.

Woooooo

Tattoo You Sabu

christina said...

screw work, i'm watching this one.

Bing buries it (x3).

LETS GO PENS!!!

fleuryous said...

Oh, and another thing, in regard to that article...

as Staal grows and gets more muscle, he's going to be a force to be reckoned with, to say the least.

Hate to be checked by that dude.


Grooooooooonk.

Russ Tundra said...

The New Xbox Live Experience comes out tonight. I can't wait till they have Penguins jerseys that we can put on our avatars.

Free Candy = Goal Tonight

BlacknGold66 said...

Scuds will get another goal before Orpik does.

Bank on it.


Let's Go Pens!!!

Raybin said...

Backstrom says "Anything you can do, I can do better" to his Washington namesake and scores in his own net tonight.

kstewy16 said...

Nolan Schaeffer is the backup for the Wild tonight.

Jawsh said...

He was pissed so he kept parking his jeep in the recaps.

Raybin said...

It's nice of Gaborik to get injured so as not to play against future teammates.

Also, it'll be good for Staal to get acquainted with his future team.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

kstewy16 said...

Thanks for that Mark Madden, I mean Raybin.

jovi said...

just watched the re-cap from last yrs. game and those jersey are "slap ur momma" ugly.

Hip said...

jordan staal was the x factor in the win against detroit.

just unreal commentary from versus - an angle no one has really talked abut yet.

WOOOOOOOOOOOO

SexyChubbs said...

The goosebumps turned to nausea when the first Sports Soup commercial hit.

Damn.

kstewy16 said...

Are the Pens wearing the blue jerseys?

M. Vanderlasser said...

Bob the Enzyte guy is a tool.

Wow, blue sweaters again!

Let's Go Pens!

pops said...

malkin sykie fedo line is sick

M. Vanderlasser said...

Boucher's on the ice...

pops said...

AHHHH too much passing

kstewy16 said...

Talbot has to shoot that. Stop the pretty shit and shoot!

M. Vanderlasser said...

"Matt Cooke never shuts up"

:)

pops said...

look at that forecheck. they are on acid tonight. looking great so far

kstewy16 said...

That was the funniest thing i've heard Versus say, next to Osgood played a great game in the 7-6 win of course..

Allison said...

Raybin- that backstrom comment was awsome

M. Vanderlasser said...

Backstrom does the robot? Huh.

Docciavelli said...

Oil Jokes up 1-0 over the Blue Jokes. Who cares.

pops said...

oh my god. they scored on themselves

kstewy16 said...

Wow. I'm going to go slit my wrists.

kstewy16 said...

COOKIEE MONSTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

pops said...

COOKIE COOKIE COOKIE!!!!!!

OrpikSmash said...

ziggy with his first goal of the year

Docciavelli said...

Money. Cookie strikes again.

M. Vanderlasser said...

Welcome to Sesame Street!!!

Chewbacca said...

COOKIE MONSTER!!!!!

pops said...

DO IT!!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWac5UT80no

kstewy16 said...

Hockey's a funny sport huh? We screw ourselves and then just like that, its a tie game.

SexyChubbs said...

Why do they make me feel bi-polar?

OrpikSmash said...

damn, points in 5 straight for cookie, never would see that from ruutu

kstewy16 said...

Sabou's blue mask kicks ass.

SexyChubbs said...

No....but you would probably see five straight games with dumb penalties from Jarko.

Over/Under on when Goddard is going to fight Boogard?

pops said...

wow hal gill put a lot on that wrister. props

kstewy16 said...

I say 5 more minutes till we see the heavyweights.

Docciavelli said...

God/Boo fight when it's 4-1 Pens in the 2nd period.

SexyChubbs said...

Nevermind. Boogaard is scratched. I need to read my Empty Netters before I comment.

sparker8907 said...

I'm gonna say under on the goddard fight...Boogaard was listed as a scratch.

SexyChubbs said...

But thanks for guessing. I'm an idiot for opening an uninformed discussion. My bad.

Fail.

kstewy16 said...

Oh, well that sucks. Too bad Versus never shows lineups, or they show those dumb scrolling lineups that I never notice untill its the 3rd defense pairings.

Chewbacca said...

@ pops

Great find with the Cookie Monster Metal!!!

pops said...

haha thanks, it makes me smile

sparker8907 said...

haha, fail on myself. I took the under. didn't read the question

kstewy16 said...

What a power move by Staalsy, he just pushed that guy off and went to the net.

pops said...

miro has been quiet lately. im gonna call that he'll get one tonight

Allison said...

Am I the only one who forgot about dupuis for the last few games? I just saw him and couldn't remember the last time I noticed him in a game

pops said...

boucher so far blokcing shots like crazy

OrpikSmash said...

well he's gettin godard ice time now

pops said...

@allison

he has been slumming it on the 4th line, so no surprise that you havent noticed him

SexyChubbs said...

They just called Satan Crosby.

I hate Versucks.

Docciavelli said...

So, can I change God/Boo to God/Reitz?

pops said...

hahahah. oh my god, what a terrible call, considering letang probably didnt even know where he was after that hit. real objective call, ref. ya fucking joke

OrpikSmash said...

they called talbot fedotenko earlier

pops said...

damn. they have a hell of a Powerplay. I almost said PP but i thought charlie would get too excited

pops said...

JEBUS staal, what a fucking pass

OrpikSmash said...

damn that was a quick period

J-Farm said...

bobby boucher's playing some solid hockey. i like.

pops said...

guinness is delicious

Russ Tundra said...

WOW! Whoever thought that I would be watching a Pens game and learning Russian at the same time.

Allison said...

Omg. "Getting me weekly pedicure"

There are no more words for versus

Allison said...

*my*
Not me

pops said...

if i see another drambuie commercial, im gonna hang myself, elmo style

btumpak said...

Versus is bush league.

go pens.

pops said...

mid 90s are back baby, sandstorm! i got the E

kstewy16 said...

God i love the forecheck of this 3rd line.
And they are getting scoring chances, what a combination of skills.

kstewy16 said...

I bet half of the Sports Soups viewers are people who pass out near the end of the game leaving their tv on. What a dumb fucking show.

pops said...

damn, sick save by backstrom

M. Vanderlasser said...

Wow, Max's face is messed up - no commercials for awhile...

pops said...

zigomanis is a pure animal on face offs, i mean, two times in a row he won it so cleanly that they had a quick shot from the point. sick

OrpikSmash said...

u know he's dominant when they're setting up plays where he's expected to win the faceoff right into the slot wing's wheelhouse

pops said...

WOOOOOOOOAH STAAAAL!!!!! FIGHT!!
oh boy. poor decision. haha, but still, props

kstewy16 said...

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH Staal is hilarious. Just the fact that he would drop the gloves with that man makes me love him.

Allison said...

Holy fuck jordan staal

OrpikSmash said...

sweet replay of the fight versucks

pops said...

wow, refs miss a high stick call, real fucking surprise...

kstewy16 said...

Staal got some punches off, i don't know if he landed any, but he beat Riets(sp?) in punch count thats for sure.

SexyChubbs said...

He landed some solid hits.

Nobody took or proposed any Over/Under on a Staal fight.

Wow. He is playing like a man possessed.

Benjamin said...

does anyone have the link to the radio stream? The x's isnt really working for me

OrpikSmash said...

the big problem with staal fighting is that it breaks up the 3rd line for the next 5 minutes, they've been solid as hell tonight

kstewy16 said...

Yeah pops they've missed a ton of stick calls tonight. I've seen a couple hooks and now that, maybe the blue jerseys blind their eyes.

SexyChubbs said...

Good thing I didn't even want to see a replay of that fight.

Fuck this channel.

pops said...

HOLY SHIT!!!!

how did that not go in?????!!!

sabu is luuuuuuuuuucky

kstewy16 said...

haha 3 posts before the net went off.

Benjamin said...

radio link anyone?

kstewy16 said...

What was the crowd booing about before the break? Did they call a penalty or something?

pops said...

yea, i love the "oh no im gonna get caught hooking, so im just gonna drop my stick" .... no penalty!

fucking hacks

SexyChubbs said...

I'd rather be lucky than good any day of the week.

"The airplane means no goal" - ?!?!

Are these two guys jacking each other off in the booth? It sounds like their flirting, not commentating. This is uncomfortable to listen to.

Allison said...

"That's not the 'I wanna be an airplane' signal, that means no goal."

Well thank you versus, for straightening that out for me.

SexyChubbs said...

And I did mean they're flirting, not their flirting.

My disgust at these commentators have caused me to become illiterate.

kstewy16 said...

Godard just fucked that guy up.

OrpikSmash said...

damn, dupuis' pullaway speed there was sick

pops said...

refs kicking sid out of the faceoff circle for nothing, pure nhl professionalism

smitty said...

WTF is a vibrant rebound ?

kstewy16 said...

At least they let that high stick go after the staal high stick.

pops said...

boucher almost money

pops said...

shit shit shit shit shit

SexyChubbs said...

OH MY GOD! NO!

kstewy16 said...

Jesus, I know we were mean to you today, but please let Geno be OK!!!

OrpikSmash said...

seems like geno's gettin hurt on a nightly basis now

SexyChubbs said...

He could have really hurt his knees there as well.

Damn.

kstewy16 said...

Fucking versus cuts to commercial the SECOND after each whistle.

SexyChubbs said...

Why is Versucks the only channel that cuts away immediately after the goalie freeze, knowing there is going to be fireworks?

I really, really, really despise this network.

SexyChubbs said...

kstewey - quit reading my mind.

kstewy16 said...

I have a feeling that is on thousands of minds...Everyone hates Versus.

kstewy16 said...

Well i guess hundreds, thousands don't watch versus.

pops said...

no hold? really? wow

OrpikSmash said...

yeah that was pretty much classic interference

OrpikSmash said...

wow, we're not losing after 2

pops said...

ok, minny plays their best hockey in the 2nd. the pens play theirs in the 3rd. BRING IT!

kstewy16 said...

Is it just me or does it seem like Letang is playing a lot more offense tonight? Maybe they've finally unleashed the leTiger.(that was really lame, sorry)

smitty said...

I'm starting to think these two pickle smugglers are in love with Backstrom.

SexyChubbs said...

Smitty - I don't know if you've heard them mention it yet or not, but you do know that it is not the Backstrom from Caps, right?

It's an angle that I'm surprised they are not discussing more...

kstewy16 said...

Sydor - Third stint with Dallas = He's their Recchi.

pops said...

brunette is a true wordsmith "i think thats fairly fair." joke

kstewy16 said...

Be fair pops, he was fairly exhausted after playing a fairly fair 2 periods of hockey on this fair weathered pittsburgh night.

Allison said...

I'm looking forward to some nice jobbing from staff in the recap tomorrow about this upcoming gretz interview

pops said...

haha. my mistake. i shouldve treated him more fairly. WOOOOOOOO

kstewy16 said...

HAHAHAHA they showed TK kicking Upshall's ass during their "enforcer" segment.

Docciavelli said...

Who wants to hear Gay Gretz talk fighting? Not me. I mean, didn't McSorley do all the fighting for him?

This is one of the times I'm glad I'm sitting here in my evening law class watching silently.

Someone tell me if he says something worthwhile. Which is unlikely.

Allison said...

Ok did that even constitute interview?

Team Canada said...

Is there a pensblog chat that goes on during games?

pops said...

any word on geno?

OrpikSmash said...

this is it

OrpikSmash said...

although in all fairness i have to say its a fairly quiet night on cblog

Team Canada said...

Not very rowdy, is it. No word yet on Geno.

Allison said...

Ok
That mcdonalds commercial might be the single most gay thing I've ever seen.

kstewy16 said...

Home games are always quiet, cus half of the people are at the game.

Docciavelli said...

Key stat so far = 15 blocked shots for the Pens. That speaks volumes about the style of play Therrien has convinced his team to play. Everyone blocks shots.

Jesus I can remember the day you'd be lucky to see Sergei Zubov get anywhere near blocking a weak wrister.

Team Canada said...

A chat would be better because then we wouldn't have to constantly refresh and scroll. Yes, I'm that lazy.

Rage said...

agreed

pops said...

WOOOO hes back

Team Canada said...

Yay Geno is back.

kstewy16 said...

Sid buries one.
Malkin gives the EN to Staal.
bank on it.

Rage said...

agreed was for allison

mcdonalds gayness

Docciavelli said...

Owen Nolan is like 63 years old.

OrpikSmash said...

wasn't he on the original san jose roster?

kstewy16 said...

WM answer - Francis.

pops said...

great play by boucher. loving the move so far

OrpikSmash said...

haha fuckin habs

kstewy16 said...

SID NEEDS TO SHOOT ON THE PP!!! FOR GOD SAKES DUDE! WHEN YOU'RE GIVEN THE PUCK IN THE SLOT LET ER RIP!

pops said...

shouldve just shot it on the backhand when backstrom was down

pops said...

fuck, was that a penalty?

OrpikSmash said...

gogo had fedotenko wide open in the slot and wouldn't give it to him

Team Canada said...

That power play sucked.

OrpikSmash said...

i thought i heard it hit the glass, if versus wouldn't go to commercial so quick we would already know

pops said...

well shit. need a big kill

OrpikSmash said...

fuck

kstewy16 said...

I don't like that PP lineup, Satan needs to be out there. Even if he's slumping or whatever, he has soft hands, and you need someone out there who can chip in it close.

pops said...

peace, ref.

kstewy16 said...

Yikes he went down like a ton of bricks.

OrpikSmash said...

HCMT should be gettin staal out there on the top power play, not keeping the 3rd line together for the 2nd PP unit

pops said...

i like where boucher's head is at with that clearance. in shero we trust.

kstewy16 said...

One more stick penalty no call, refs are doing great tonight.

OrpikSmash said...

i don't know what to make of backstrom. on some occasions he makes great saves. on other occasions he gives up horrible rebounds and is lucky his defense is tying up our forwards

kstewy16 said...

Yeah its a team effort, not an amazing goaltender, much like detroit, but also much like detroit, VS is sucking his balls.

kstewy16 said...

He's only seen 20 shots and they're giving him the vezina, what jokes.

pops said...

big PP. easy charlie.

OrpikSmash said...

good time for minnesota to give up their first 3rd period PP goal

Allison said...

Zidlicky- what a bizzarre name

pops said...

what a pass by malkin. fucking soccer style.

kstewy16 said...

Wow, that was an absolute blast by Boucher.

Allison said...

As gay as it is and even though he's in a flyers uni, that commercial makes me smile every time

pops said...

gotta shoot gotta shoot. minny isnt gonna allow them to just walk through.

get the point first, boys.

kstewy16 said...

Sabou is a fucking beast.

pops said...

SAAAABOUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!

pops said...

got the point. lets get the 2nd.

kstewy16 said...

Sabou has to be 1st star if we win.

pops said...

in all fairness. sabou is pitching a shutout tonight.

kstewy16 said...

You mean fairly fair fairness?

Allison said...

There is not enough hate in here.
I hate you you christmas colors wearing sons of bitches!!!!

pops said...

haha, of course of course.

pops said...

satan ftw

OrpikSmash said...

oh hell yeah

pops said...

WOOOO!! PP

satan time

SexyChubbs said...

What kind of a name is Wild anyway? Fuck you Stupid Minnesotans.

Better Allison?

kstewy16 said...

3th high sticking, 1st one called.

SexyChubbs said...

I'd love to see Staal get it.

If he does, he got the Gordie Howe Hat Trick!

Rage said...

square-head motherfuckers
