GAMEDAY [27] -- New Jersey Devils

[Picture+17.<span class=
12-7-2

A lot of people left the Devils for dead after Brodeur went down.
But quietly the Devils have done okay, and they are far from dead.

Still, Kevin Weekes and Scott Clemmensen don't strike fear in to you like Brodeur would.
Whatev.

Ron Jeremy never pulls out, but pull out a win for us, Big Guy.


Sabu, do big things.


Satan>>>>>>>The Devils.


Go Pens.

btumpak said...

go pens.

osgood is such a douche.

Rage said...

osgood is THE douche


FUCKIN GO PENS!!

fleuryous said...

PS. There is absolutely nothing wrong with being gay for Scuds. He's been playing really well thus far, so if you're going to be gay for anyone, Scuds is a pretty good choice, among others.

I hope Letang gets some chances to shoot because his shots could potentially kill someone...but "if he dies, he dies."

And I hope Boucher's okay.

dirtyd said...

I am not gay for Scuds or Letang, I am waiting to be gay for the Whitney Play next month. I hope he comes back and does it on the first PP.

Jonny Van Mundegaarde said...

From last post:

Dying Alive, my whole memory of being a Pens fan post Lemieux version 2.0 was "who the hell is this Rico Fata/Ramzi Abid/Lasse Pirjeta/etc. Those that didn't sit through those trying times will never understand how special a team that we have, nor will they experience the full rush that comes when we finally lift that Cup. How far this team has come will be lost on them, but that's ok...

It's their loss.

christina said...

i noticed our division record for the first time this morning. fuckin decent.


LETS GO PENS!!!!!!

jefe p said...

i miss rico fata, but not nearly as much as rico fata missed the net.

PittHockey said...

what is this back-to-back game madness?

stokes said...

You can NEVER go wrong starting The Hedgehog. Good call, Staff.

LeGame58 said...

Puckshagger said it best...



Tanger will start lighting the lamp as soon as he gets his first one. After that, the flood gates are gonna open...

Go Pens

Aubrey said...

@ jefe-
Quote of the day: "i miss rico fata, but not nearly as much as rico fata missed the net."

I laughed for a good 2-3 minutes about that...

GO PENS! and yes, Satan >>>> the devils

Hand of Godard said...

Hearing that Plaxico Burress shot himself has made my night. A win against the Devils will be icing on the cake.
GO PENS

Plastico shot himself?? Sweet jesus.

Hand of Godard said...

in the leg... he's OK

fleuryous said...

B(R)ING IT.

Team Canada said...

Is the atdhe link working for everyone? It is usually amazing for me put it keeps stopping to load tonight. Any suggestions?

fer said...

woowww, amazing goal by sid, amazing.

wilsmith said...

Is FSN HD crapping all over itself for anyone else?

fleuryous said...

Better PP.

Hand of Godard said...

@Wilsmith
FSN HD is looking good for me.

Steve In Denver said...

Sid is looking scary. I can't believe he caught and passed those two Devils for the loose puck and got the mini break. Damn.

fleuryous said...

Crosby looks like a ballerina out there.


Ridiculous.

fleuryous said...

Oh man, I hope Staal's okay.

fleuryous said...

Great hockey in the first period.
Woooooooo.

debrisslide said...

Sabu stands tall.

SteveThePirate said...

Man, what a scare. I hit the link for the feed, and there's yoga all over the screen. Thankfully, the Superstar commercial brought me back from shock.
Missed the entire first period. Lame.
GO PENS.

fleuryous said...

SYKKIE!Q

Steve In Denver said...

Chinchillas all around! Woooo

fleuryous said...

Sykkie has the biggest smile on his face...great PPG goal.

Thank Jesus...or Crosby.

rickyaustin33 said...

Just beautiful.

DP said...

Beautiful pass and awesome reception by Sykora!

fleuryous said...

I really like this Cooke-Staal-Kennedy line.


That being said, great hit by Cooke.

Steve In Denver said...

That line is a tough, tough 3d line.

fleuryous said...

Bing's FUCKING UNREAL.

Steve In Denver said...

Eat it Gionta.

Steve In Denver said...

Er, Parise

rebecca said...

BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIING

fleuryous said...

Crosby and Malkin's names are being said so much that I may want to vomit.


...just kidding, I would never.

WOOOOOOOO.

DP said...

Malkin took one for the team right there... But amazing effort, didn't they learn not to job Malkin after what happened in the playoffs against the Flyers?

rickyaustin33 said...

I know it's still early, but they may have to saw the Hart Trophy in half this year.

wilsmith said...

ah, the dreaded 3-goal lead.

fleuryous said...

Tyler Kennedy is going to grow to be a great player. He's already really good, but...man oh man, he really is improving.

Jonny Van Mundegaarde said...

T-Minus until someone here "calls" a Bing hat trick

rebecca said...

fleuryous took the words out of my mouth about TK. fantastic.

wilsmith said...

SHOOOOOOOOOOT

I need to get to a Pens game so I can yell "SHOOT!" during a shootout.

Allison said...

I'm watching the jersey feed on TV and the Devils' announcers have been all over Crosby and Malkin's nuts the whole game. It's quite ammusing how much they love them.

fleuryous said...

Bing Hat Trick...there you go,Jon.


By the way, did you go the Backyard Brawl?

wilsmith said...

I'll do you one better, Mr. V, I'm calling a save.

Sabu will make a save this game.
I expect to have this cut out and posted in the recap because this is a guarantee.

Book it.

fleuryous said...

DON'T SAY THAT, Errey.

DP said...

Did Errey just call a Bing hat trick?

wilsmith said...

There it was.
A save.
I called it.
Celebrate.

fleuryous said...

He said that if the Devils didn't capitalize on that PP, he was calling a win for the Pens.But don't repeat it...it's bad juju. hah.

Steve In Denver said...

Good christ, Malkin almost scored a lacrosse goal

fleuryous said...

By the way, did Malkin play baseball?

fleuryous said...

I REALLY like this third line!

Jonny Van Mundegaarde said...

bigwilliesmith, I've had that one ready, but have yet to attend a shootout. Although during the Sabres game a few weeks ago, I yelled "Don't shoot!" while Crosby had it in the slot on the PP, he then slid it to Goligoski for the goal. There were several laughs in the section. One small victory in the war against "SHOOOT!"

fleuryous said...

For the meh performance last night (I didn't think we played badly--third period bit us in the balls), tonight is definitely making up for it.


BIG third period, guys.

wilsmith said...

It happens one smart-ass remark at a time.

I did similar things at a Chiefs game last night. Alright, I know it's the Coast, but we have to start somewhere.

rebecca said...

wicked large.

fucking mcdonalds.

I haven't seen Save by Zero in a few days...;)

Jonny Van Mundegaarde said...

Fleuryous, no, I had to work yesterday, but would have probably tried to make my way on the field to strangle Bill Stull, so it's better that I didn't go. Shady had a helluva swan song at Heinz, and yes, I do believe he's going to the draft this year.

Steve In Denver said...

Cooke may get maimed in the 3d. The Devils are less than happy with him. Which means he needs to waste someone and bury one to really rub it in.

This is a sick effort tonite.

fleuryous said...

PS. Boston is choking the life out of Detroit.

Conklin was the one being choked, though. Hm.


Sykora is rather excited. Good for him, Man.

DP said...

Sykkie should have body slammed Potash for touching his hair, that was weird.

meecrofilm said...

Bing City has been unreal the past couple games. I'd put good money on him getting the HT in the 3rd.

Ernie said...

potash is such a beast

Jonny Van Mundegaarde said...

google saved by zero annoying, there are articles written about how much people hate it. I think the promotion is ending soon, so the commercials should be soon too.

fleuryous said...

It was crazy, Jon. I was sitting near a bunch of WVU fans (who were d-bags--surprise!). At the end of the game, though, they were silent and were only belligerent maybe...three times?

Yeah, Stull was being scorned by opponents and fans alike. I mean...I won't go into it, but he wasted AT LEAST two touchdowns.

Shady was great, McKillop was great. I hope Shady doesn't go, though--he said he wouldn't, but if he gets offered an outrageous contract, who knows.

debrisslide said...

Penguins need to still be that third period team. WE KNOW NO LEADS.

debrisslide said...

Intermission report dude on FSN just said the s-word. ERGHHHHHH. WHAT THE FUCK.

Allison said...

I can't wait till this potash interview hits the gore. Sounds golden.

rebecca said...

I'm sorry to keep talking about commercials, but..
burb of the burgh. AWFUL.

M. Vanderlasser said...

Bos 4, Det 1 in the 3rd...yay!

Missed the first 1/2 of tonight's game and were trying to find it on the radio and heard a Devils' announcer talking about a 7-3 Devils lead (?!). We were scared (kind of) until we got home. Wow.

Debbie Flaherty FTW...

P.S. Steubenville!

Jonny Van Mundegaarde said...

debris, what S-word? Samsonite?

I think a huge banner (spanning at least one section) saying something to the effect of "Only douchebags yell SHOOOT!" might help the matter. maybe not douchebags...hmmm, a synonym...Flyer fans! "Only Flyer Fans yell SHOOOOT!"

DP said...

Alright, I feel like a douche, but I'm from California. So, what's the difference between chipped and shaved ham?

fleuryous said...

That dad is double-fisting.

My kind of man.

fleuryous said...

And Sykora's goal celebration looked like a TD celebration. Sid basically carried him.

Too good.

fleuryous said...

What's the difference?

M. Vanderlasser said...

@DP, I feel like a douche because I can't answer your "chipped vs shaved ham" question.

I believe that both are pork products, though.

Jonny Van Mundegaarde said...

No difference, it's pittsburghese. And the one thing i miss about california are wasabi flavored funyuns.

fleuryous said...

We felt bad for them...so we let them have it.

rebecca said...

wasabi flavored funyuns? what has science DONE?!

;) guess they had to try to get atleast one in.

DP said...

Cool. CROSBY FIGHT!

M. Vanderlasser said...

Crosby >>> Ali

Allison said...

Uggg scuderi-
He had to do that so that he can trick people into believing he's really human

fleuryous said...

Staal showed them up. WOOOOO.

rebecca said...

Staal is huge. once you see him on ice during a game you're like OH FUUU

M. Vanderlasser said...

Yeah, and he's smooth...like buttah...

Jonny Van Mundegaarde said...

Wasabi Funyuns are the best snack food i've ever tasted. Ever.

fleuryous said...

Jesus Christ, Sabu holding on to the puck just then was a necessity.


I feel like I'm on acid.

M. Vanderlasser said...

@JVM, better than Martin's BBQ chips and/or chili-flavored Fritos?

M. Vanderlasser said...

Uh oh.

Jonny Van Mundegaarde said...

Better than even Garden Salsa Sunchips. I would actually feel ashamed after eating them because I scarfed them down so fast.

Scuds took a huge hit to the noggin there. Make 'em pay Bobby.

M. Vanderlasser said...

Whew.

Hey, Sabu went back to the "baby with holes in it" helmet.

Steve In Denver said...

Yep, he got yanked with the new frog mask. You may never see that one again.

Allison said...

@mvan- omg. "Baby with holes in it"
Awsome

rebecca said...

Hey, I like Baby with holes in it mask!

M. Vanderlasser said...

I've had nightmares about that helmet.

Steve In Denver said...

That baby looks like a poltergeist. I'd shake that baby.

fleuryous said...

Well, whatever the case, Sabu is playing like a champ.

I've said it countless times, and I'll say it again.

Cooke-Staal-Kennedy line: MONEY.

Their energy is unbelievable. Seriously.

Cooke, get a garbage goal. haha

M. Vanderlasser said...

...or buy it some Chinese-made toys.

Oh, man, a HCMT bobblehead...

fleuryous said...

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEW Jon.


Hattrick!

DP said...

BING TRICK!

rebecca said...

HATTY, BIIIIIIIIIIING

M. Vanderlasser said...

HT! HT! HT!

Jonny Van Mundegaarde said...

And there it is. That looked fun!

fleuryous said...

I better get credit in the post or I'll take it to the court.


He looked like he was on a wet 'n wild.

Steve In Denver said...

Superman with the hattie.

M. Vanderlasser said...

Do you think Sid likes his job?

fleuryous said...

Can we create a two-headed-monster hat trick?


I feel like that'd be too easy, but come on...

Jonny Van Mundegaarde said...

Sorry fleuryous, calling a HT after a person scored two goals already gets you only a cookie. Supplied by you.

DP said...

Does Bing speak Russian, because Geno seems to talk way more than I've ever seen when he's talking to Crosby?

Allison said...

B-e-a-utiful!

M. Vanderlasser said...

Jay-C's telestrator is going to explode tonight.

Steve In Denver said...

SATISFIED

fleuryous said...

Ladies and Gentlemen,


Exhibit A: 60 Spectacular Minutes of Unreal Penguins Hockey.


Crosby: Unreal, we all know that.
Sabu: The man. He better get a star.
3rd Line: WHO is your speed dealer?


GO.
PENS.

fleuryous said...

Oh, Jon...you cut to the core of me.

meecrofilm said...

Bing Cityyyyyyy

Everyone saw that HT special coming.

woooooooooooo

gpclay said...

Sweet. Solid solid win.

M. Vanderlasser said...

I, Potash w/ Sid...

fleuryous said...

Sid's first goal is going to legendary.

btumpak said...

wow.

I had to watch it on MSG+, It was like pulling my teeth out. horrible.

Go Pens.


Sabu was tits mcgee tonight.

Flyer Hater said...

Crosby Blows.

debrisslide said...

Jersey emptying the net with two minutes left was a hilarious decision.

M. Vanderlasser said...

Oh boy oh boy oh boy...here comes the telestrator...hockey porn...

Flyer Hater said...

Why debriss? I hate when Therrien pulls Sabu or Fleury when the Pens are down by two with like 15 seconds left. Jersey had a draw in their own end and needed to score 2 just to tie, it was a fine coaching decision.

M. Vanderlasser said...

Stan and Jay making fun of the Devils and the invisible dog fencing at the blue line...

powerhouse said...

Very good 60 min effert right to the end wish I was there standing O at the end by fans good stuff. Much better execution on PP as well. Letang showing glimpses of his shot. Hope to see more of that because believe me this guy has both an excellent wrist shot plus moves. Not to mention a freakin cannon of slapper.

Good effort to the end and loved Malkins and sids enthusiasm and driving to the net.

I am not sure we realize what a lucky, lucky bunch we are to be able to watch a great team night in night out. It willget even better I believe as the PP evolves a truely strong 2nd PP.

Kudos to Stall for Fing up some Devils that need to go to hell. Good stuff indeed!!!

Beav said...

Really? We have people calling themselves Pens fans that still can't spell Staal? How hard is this?

powerhouse said...

@ Beav

Sorry about the Staal spelling. Many drinks with friends during the game.

fleuryous said...

Brooks is a good guy.
I stand by that comment too.

Steve In Denver said...

The Pens are a one trick pony. They'll miss the playoffs.
One line.
No Goaltending.
No D.
No money to sign Staaaaaaaal.
Lemieux's a wino.
I can't watch any more.
I'm jumping ship to the Avs.

Jonny Van Mundegaarde said...

Steve in Denver FTW

dying alive said...

Sabu's helmet makes me nervous because every time I see a puck fly toward his head, I think about the fact that he's got a baby painted on it. Pucks hitting a baby = not my thing, even if it's only a painted-on baby.

Awesome game by the Pens, especially Bing. Watching all of the doucherockets sitting behind the netting try to throw their hats onto the ice only to see them bounce off and fly back into the crowd entertained me to an irrational degree.

pops said...

what a game. finally as close to a 60 minute effort as they come.

great play by the obvious bunch, but i was very impressed by fedotenko tonight. didnt show on the score sheet, but he was physical and battling along the boards like no other. pesonen also looked more visible than last game, which isnt saying much, but he had a couple of plays where he tracked back. big win overall. woooooo.

Puck Finn already sent back to Wilkes Barre.

Ron Jeremy inspired the boys big time.

I'd like to see what heights (no pun) a drunk Vern Troyer, pissing off of his little wheelie thing, could take them to.

Matty said...

23 games in....Paul Steigerwald still sucks at life.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Nice to see Geno and Sid leading the points ...

Flyer Hater, another person talking to you about your favorite goalie, Tim Thomas ... Do you have that video saved just so you can ridicule him or C-bloggers? He was sick this last game, sorry you didn't see him play against the Wings ...

Steiggy's not bad, he's not the best but he isn't bad enough that you should be bitching. Versus taught me a little something about respecting what I have. Plus, he is a huge fan of the Pens and giggles at the Bibster's innuendos. *smiles*

Allison said...

Woah, I feel like I haven't seen Ihavekasparaitis in forever. I miss that name.

wilsmith said...

Pens still arent even really playing all that well.

debrisslide said...

FH, Jersey would have had a better chance to tie if they pulled him in the midst of a solid rush instead of making it a must-win faceoff. Their defense was so soff and demoralized at that point that it was a foregone conclusion.

A fine coaching decision, you're right, but only when the team the coach is playing isn't vomiting. I just thought it was funny. I was just being spiteful. You, of all people, should know what that's like. :D
