GAMENIGHT: Olie the Goalie Returns Home

[<span class=[<span class=
Versus, 7:00pm




Olie the Goalie returns to Washington tonight.

Solid read about the return from [Lightning Strikes]

"On Caps star Alex Ovechkin saying the way to rattle Kolzig is to shoot near his head and get him mad, something Ovechkin apparently did purposefully to Kolzig during practices: "The difference is in practice when he went high, I couldn't take liberties on him when I was a teammate. Now, heads up."

[Japers Rink] stays classy about the situation, but is right when he says no need to get all emotional about it.


This brings up an interesting question. Who has the advange in this battle of former teammates?

Is it going to be Kolzig, or A.O. and friends?

No way in hell we are touching this game.

Oilers finish up the world's longest road trip.
Can't get a feeling on this game either. Part of us want to take the over, but with King Henrik you never know. Can't start forcing bets now.

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



Huge episode tonight.

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

Thanks to our teammate Kevbo for this heads up.

Malkin's interviews are starting to become legendary.





Go Pens

Potash needs to get Geno to say Moose and Squirrel by the end of the season.

Angelo said...

Hossa question leaves Geno speechless!

IceCold... said...

i definitely would never have guessed they listen to coldplay in the locker room...thats interesting.

i like how they let geno off the hook when he doesn't know what he wants to say, haha

LETS GO THE HAITIAN!!

dying alive said...

I <3 Geno.

I also always kinda liked Ollie the Goalie, even though he played for the Caps. I don't know if it's because he's a likable guy or because the Pens have owned him for years.

coffeytalk said...

Soundin' good, Geno.

Keep up the English and you'll be getting your own line of Peanut Butter soon!

Ironed Dockers said...

haha Geno owns, comedic gold.

Truth be told, Geno speaks better English than I do.

canaan said...

lol. geno loves to do the "peeved michel therrien" facial expressions. quality.

Matt said...

HA!! classic interview...come on Geno you've been around for a couple years now I thought Mario was homeschooling them!!

KaylaJ said...

i always feel akward watching a malkin interview. you know what's gonna happen and you almost feel embarrassed for the guy. but i'm glad he's at least learned "good game". quality words that can be used in every day life (though i'm sure he knows more, just doesn't say it)

anyway, as for tb vs craps, its games like these i miss the ties.

TheFandangler said...

Woo.

TIMKO said...

Poor Malin...

I read today...i think on Pittsburgh trib...that Iceburgh and the NJ Devil are in a new Sportscenter ad. Anyone seen it or have a clip or did it not come out yet?

Stoosh said...

Wow.

Watching this Caps-Lightning game and Tampa is some extra special kind of suck. They could give up 90 shots in a game and I'm not sure I'd be even remotely surprised. In fact, the way this game is going, the Caps might be placing a call to their ECHL team so they can get them to the arena in time to play the third period.

Tampa looks like exactly what they really are - a team full of hired guns. No energy. No continuity. No communication or chemistry whatsoever. If I didn't know any better, I'd wonder if these guys even see each other outside of game nights. They look like a rec league team put together of players who don't see each other until ten minutes before the game, and then haul ass out of the locker room as soon as the game is over.

They remind me a little bit of the 2005-06 team when Edzo coached them because it doesn't look like they're playing any sort of system, but at least that Pens team had Crosby going for it.

What an awful, awful team. And their ownership deserves it.

how 'bout dat 'burgh n'at? said...

I hope someone recorded Edzo talking about his wife giving birth and her dilation during the 1st intermission. Unreal...

KaylaJ said...

malone not expected to return

BlacknGold66 said...

Peter Petrelli = Money

Look at the ass the bastard has landed. Not-to-mention his cup licking spawn.

debrisslide said...

Malkin's English is getting pretty good. Poor guy is apologizing. I hate reporters.

fleuryous said...

hahahaha, jawsh, I'm in love with you for that comment.


Geno's interviews make me happy--I don't care if his English is choppy.


And he is a goober.

Go Pens.

What happened to Malone?

johnnylaw said...

That interview is priceless. I would've thought his English would have improved a little bit more by now, but it makes for a good interview. I'm waiting for him to "innocently" drop an f bomb or call Ovechkin an asshole, or something along those lines. Even better would be an explanation of why Ovechkin wants to take his head off. "He mad because I make da sex with his girlfriend and finish with romance explosion on face. He not like very much, especially when she say, uh, Alex have penis like Debbie Briere. While I talk about Flyer, Richards dive like Ovechkin girl on my testicles."

God, I'm waiting for that interview.

johnnylaw said...

Wow, WWGRD gets a goal.

KaylaJ said...

gary scores his first goal this season

demondg1 said...

Woooooooo!

Gary Roberts. First goal of the season. Way to go old man.

demondg1 said...

johnnylaw cBlog post of the night.

Romance explosion on face... Nicely done sir.

Aubrey said...

You know what, though, I miss the old days when Geno had his interpreter there and he would pretend like he didn't understand ANY english. God only knows what he was saying to that Russian son-of-a-bitch!

Save the motherland!

dhudzin said...

@ stoosh

Lord Gary put one in for me for old times sake since I got some money on the Lightning. Is the game really that bad? I'm listening to Oilers-Rags at the moment, but the Lightning are actually leading in shots according to the boxscore.

powerhouse said...

OK so Olie looks like he would rather be somewhere else. Is Malone even playing? Yikes this is not much of a game.

KaylaJ said...

malone left the game and won't return.

and its not that bad anymore. tb kinda settled down some in the 2nd, but they still need 2 goals and no one seems to really want to step up and do that.

fleuryous said...

What happened to Malone?

meecrofilm said...

Two things.

1) Seriously, Malkin is Fezzik from The Princess Bride. Seriously.

2) Wow, as if we needed any confirmation that ovechkin is a hack (and a dick) look at him actually hitting kolzig in the face with a shot. Hack.

KaylaJ said...

fleuryous all they'll say is upper body injury...or did they say lower? either way, who knows

71crush said...

Great job, Geno!! I love how he is doing more and more of this stuff.

TIMKO said...

Johnny Law = Hero for the day

debrisslide said...

johnnylaw FTW. Save the motherland.

Stoosh said...

@ Dhudzin -

Like KaylaJ said, the game isn't quite so bad...not that it was that bad in the first. Let's just say my old dek hockey team was more organized than the Lightning, and we went two straight seasons without winning a game.

Tampa just sucks. When you watch them play, you can tell it's a bunch of guys who have never really played much together before and there was so much turnover, you have to wonder how long it's going to be before certain guys even learn what their roles are supposed to be and settle into them.

Just to give you an idea of how fucked up it is down there, every time I look up at the television, I swear Recchi's out there. They even have him on their top PK unit, I think.

KaylaJ said...

4-1, gap toothed caveman scores

KaylaJ said...

stoosh i all but forget sometimes TB has st louis and even lecavalier on some nights with all their new players

KaylaJ said...

goodness gary, he makes it 4-2

KaylaJ said...

and that's your final folks, 4-2 caps. at least both of these teams don't get a point

"hot as a pistol"? what is wrong with vs announcers?

fleuryous said...

Why is AO a douche?

I often wonder.

dmbforum40 said...

@ timko

It is true, I can confirm for you that they did indeed tape a commercial with SC Anchor Chris McKendry, the NJ Devil and Iceburgh. And as the article stated.. the premise is based on the temperature in the room and I'm sure you can figure out the rest of the complex premise..

Probably wont hit air until more toward the end of this year..

debrisslide said...

Anyone else gritting their teeth hoping the Rangers lose?

Hip said...

GENOOOOOOOOOOO

Just the next game boys. Just the next game.

Nothing to see here.

Hip said...

PS - I do cervical exams all day every day now and I wanted to vomit when Edzo said that.

fleuryous said...

HAH, Rangers. haha

PenguinsExperience.com said...

Roberts with two goals!

Go Gary!

dhudzin said...

Say what you will about the Oilers organization, but their radio play-by-play announcer damn near gave me a heart attack tonight.

TheFandangler said...

Tampa Bay = Laughingstock

xocharmedchildox said...

I'm always gonna have a spot in my heart for roberts and im happy he scored hahaha. No one better to score against than the craps =]

Allison said...

Johnnylaw- you just made my life.

TIMKO said...

Thanks dmbforum40.

WWGRD

meecrofilm said...

Heroes is crazy.

And retro Haitian action is what it's all about.

wilsmith said...

Does Geno still room with Mad Max?

Geno should be happy he works in Pittsburgh. We generally perceive the media guys as dicks but it seems as though they're giving him a chance to learn and say what he wants to say, and it doesnt seem like anyone is forcing tough questions on him or getting him to say something he shouldn't.

Can you imagine the heat he would take if he was dealing with the media outlets from a major market like Toronto, New York or Boston?

He's going at his own pace, he has more important things to worry about.

Stoosh,

Recchi received 20:50 of ice time. Lecavalier had 21:29. That alone accurately sums up how fucked Tampa is right now. When you're relying on the late-2000's addition of Mark Recchi to play meaningful minutes 5 on 5, man the point of your top PP unit, AND see substantial time on the PK you are fucked. Plain and simple.

Erica said...

malkin needs to add a few more adjectives to his english vocabulary. something a little more descriptive than "nice" would be, well, nice. although i took a semester of russian and recognize how tough it is to learn a language with a different alphabet, i'm not entirely convinced that he can read. who cares? dude's got a PhD in hockey.

Matthew said...

malkin's english is good, but he definetly has the excuse market cornered when he doesnt feel like answering questions

johnnylaw said...

Glad I could make a few people laugh. After the gagfest of a football game on Sunday, I figured many of us could use a laugh between now and face-off in (Ho)Motown, as many of us do care about both sports teams in Pittsburgh (I've stopped calling the Pirates a team. When they lose less than 90 games, maybe I'll reconsider).

For once, I'll be glad to watch a game on Versucksmycock, because I've been having to survive on internet feeds, and while it's something, I get too much lag. It's got to be that great service we get with the Comcast monopoly in Philly (if you don't detect the sarcasm, you probably aren't smart enough to read this anyway).

Things I'd love to see tomorrow:

1. Have Geno nail Elroy right in the head, have him fall unconscious and still have the puck get in the net somehow.
2. Have Holmstrom get cup-checked by MAF for sticking his fat Swedish ass in his face.
3. Have that asshat Kronwall attempt another jumping check and fly into the Pens bench and have HCMT call him a joke.

That would make my night. Of course, none of that would matter much without a win.

does anyone know where to catch a stream of the wings game? my brother is in the marines and is stationed in Sarasota and really wants to catch the game.... Thanks

fleuryous said...

I'm sure justintv will have a feed, zach--check back tomorrow, because we usually find out an hour or so before the game starts.

Kronwall=caveman. It's true. Especially with the playoff beard.

I'm going to sew Holstrom an apron because he tends to the net more than Fleury. Jesus Christ. I actually dislike him more than anyone on the team, because of that. haha

Franzen...I will buy him cheese for his WHINE. Ugh.

Everyone praises Osgood like he's outrageously good.
I mean, he's good, but...not amazing. A lot of my friends keep telling me that the Pens won't win a cup with Fleury as goaltender. I tell my friends they are jokes.

(...no really, I do.)

I'm not going to wish anyone to get hurt tomorrow, but I hope Orpik, Cooke, and Godard clean house...ya know.

Go Pens.

happy088 said...

yeah check out either justin.tv and then click sports to ice hockey tabs...or www.myp2p.eu and click on the live sports tab to Ice hockey...then any media player stream with the highest 'your rating' set of stars

Zach said...

awesome thanks alot guys

Matty said...

So, I read this crap about going at Kolzig's face. I say to myself, what a bunch of crap. I hate Banna Boy, Ovechkin. But, I'm sure h'es more professional. Then I turn on Versus mid 2nd period. And what's the first thing I see? Ape Face AO rip a wrist shot straight off the face mask of Ollie. (this was the shot where Backstrom was absolutely robbed on the rebound). What a dick. I'm really hoping his little draw string for his pants get's caught on something immovable his next game.

Nulpher said...

AO lacks class plain and simple. Headhunting Malkin, using Kolzig's face as a shooting target...

If he keeps progressing, I think we'll have found our Chris Simon replacement.

Aron said...

life and death = death row to geno = priceless to me.

FireFox said...

I feel bad for Geno on those interviews. He has only been learning the language for 2 years so he just doesn't know what words to use. He is tripping over more words than Sarah Palin. The difference is that knows how to do the job. Palin is just a dumbass.
