GAMEDAY 27 -- BUFFALO SABRES

[Picture+4.png]
We've played Buffalo like 8 times this year already.
But it's good to be back in the Mellon tonight.

VERSUS


Ben Lovejoy will be in the lineup tonight. PENS
He's right-handed.

If he's a beast, then God help us all.
It'd be the most potent blue line since the one Pablo Escosmurf had you do.

christina said...

Even though I've always referred to our blueliner as The Reverend, that is an excellent gameday choice.

LETS GO PENS!!!!!!

TIMKO said...

Do it


VOTE MALKIN!

debrisslide said...

Oh yeah. Do this shit.

Puckshagger said...

jovi said...

guy from titanic ...really? i guess he was all business, and he was the only one smart enough to realize the dumb boat was going to sink.

interest to see what he's got...

GO PENS

J.S. said...

fact: Ryan Miller's mom is so ugly, the plastic surgeon sued her.

fleuryous said...

Well, at least he's pulling out the big guns.

WOO.

debrisslide said...

so, atdhe.net has banner ads and java shit from this website called widgetbucks.com, and I think my college Internet has some kind of ban on it because I have MAJOR TROUBLE loading a fucking atdhe.net stream because I'm constantly "waiting for widgetbucks.com..." in my fucking taskbar.

I'm going to miss this game because of fucking widgetbucks.com. I can feel it.

Stilly said...

Go Pens! Do It.

johnny said...

Pablo Escosmurf...that was inspired.

Do it!

btumpak said...

lets do this shit.

rev lovejoy


go pens.

kstewy16 said...

Ryan Millers GAA 2.53
Ryan Millers Sv% .909

Ryan Millers GAA vs the Pens 3.50
Ryan Millers Sv% vs the Pens .870


Last season vs Pens
.895 Sv%
2.75 GAA

Oh, did I mention, 0-4 last season against us, 1-1 this season.

If I hear one time tonight that he's an elite goalie, I'm shooting Doc Emrick.

Benjamin said...

stream anyone?

J.S. said...

oh fuck, I just realized it's a versucks game.

bah

AlanClique said...

Streaammmm

http://atdhe.net/live-tv-1263.html

debrisslide said...

@Benjamin - this shit

AlanClique said...

yea its on versus, but at least its in HD here

Benjamin said...

link not working, dk why, any other links to stream? Im dying here...

kstewy16 said...

Could be cus Versucks doesn't start any game related stuff till exactly 7:30

btumpak said...

game doesnt start until 730... you will find a link by then... pray to rev. lovejoy

Benjamin said...

oh ok I thought it was @ 7, my bad

AlanClique said...

btumpak said...

tampa bay is such a joke. 3-0 to boston, 10 mins in.

tang is better than o.j. said...

New to the commentblog, tho' i've been reading pensblog forever, so i'll keep it short:

GO PENS!!!!

Amen

wilsmith said...

versus bloooowsss.

btumpak said...

omg these dudes are douches...

good thing Lange is always there

kstewy16 said...

I really need to buy a radio for in my living room, I can't stand listening to these idiots. If its gonna be versus, at least give us Edzo, he's better than nothing.

Benjamin said...

goal from letang tonight, callin it

meecrofilm said...

Forslund is probably the best announcer on the Vs crew though, so we do luck out on that. No Emrick or, most importantly, Benenati.

Aubrey said...

don cherry controversy + ryan miller + versucks all in one day = vomitblog

we better own them tonight!

Docciavelli said...

I'm always wrong about this, but what the hell.

Petr Gunn = GWG

I'm just feelin' it.

[call your shot]

kstewy16 said...

I think Emrick's the best honestly, at least his high pitched screaming is semi entertaining. The rest of versucks announcers are boring as hell. And as far as color guys go, if its not Edzo, he might as well just keep him mouth closed.

Is there a delay on the wxdx online radio? If not, I'll just listen to Lange...

Docciavelli said...

Can you pause the Atdhe stream and sync it to Lange?

fleuryous said...

Woah...Versus is sucking Malkin's dick for once.


Sweet.

Aubrey said...

@fleuryous-
cuz they know don cherry is a dick!

kstewy16 said...

"Pascal Dupuis goes to work for the Sabers"

Wow, I was unaware that they made that Dupuis for Afinaginov(sp?) trade that LGP is calling for.

Aubrey said...

"Lindy Ruff's team is looking for scoring"

silly me, i thought that was the point of hockey??? :P

btumpak said...

lovejoy rocking #65 nice

btumpak said...

VERSUS is sooo horrible...

they didnt even announce that penalty and went to a break...

fleuryous said...

Uh-oh...too many men.

Aubrey said...

off the post!

meecrofilm said...

19 Buries it.

Aubrey said...

they've got a hard on for Lindy...drinking game to how many times they say Lindy Ruff would get you drunk by first intermission...

kstewy16 said...

Well, Dupes won't play another shift on the 1st line.
Chris Minard, Welcome to Crosby's wing.

btumpak said...

thats why Vanek isnt a gamer... he didnt even drive to the net.

lame.

meecrofilm said...

The Minard Train was just playing with Geno. Maybe he'll bounce around the Top 6 tonight.

kstewy16 said...

Maybe not Minard then, but Dupuis is off the first line after that shitty play.

Ice said...

Goalapost hur hur.

vomit.

Aubrey said...

"greatness in a small package"



.......
doesn't happen very often!!!

kstewy16 said...

I bet Gill's up in the stands crying that he isn't there to get into the midgets face. That guy wouldn't even come up to his belt.

Aubrey said...

woooooooooooooo

Stoosh said...

FEDS.

kstewy16 said...

Fed Ex!!!! Sweet pass.
And these guys are all over the pens balls tonight, whats up with that?

meecrofilm said...

So that's why Versus is all over Geno's balls.

MalkinG. That was SICK.

btumpak said...

tasty.

Stoosh said...

There are few things better than that wide-angle view of the crowd jumping to its collective feet when a goal goes in the net.

Aubrey said...

that was some pretty sweet puck handling by Malkin...suck it Cherry

M. Vanderlasser said...

TATER!!!!!

Ice said...

Not an ASG starter why? Make it happen cblog.

kstewy16 said...

That view is much better when its a white out like in the "Its a Great Day for Hockey" commercial.
That puts tears in my eyes.

Stoosh said...

Well, shit...

btumpak said...

orpik - thats a couple horrible giveaways this year

meecrofilm said...

Orpik has been brutal on the turnovers the past couple days.

kstewy16 said...

I'm pretty sure Pythagorus just lost that erection.

Aubrey said...

the dark lord needs to show buffalo what's up...we need you satan!

meecrofilm said...

Stoosh:

Couldn't agree more.

Aubrey said...

@kstewy-
that comment was amazing! =)
thanks for that play, orpik...

pops said...

i like Orpik, but what in God's green goodness was that?

pops said...

shit like that just kills any momentum. ugh.

btumpak said...

derek roy is still a midget...

meecrofilm said...

Regarding the crowd-jumping comment. Not the 'shit' comment. Though I agree with that one too.

kstewy16 said...

I don't really know about Lovejoy's defensive play, but so far he's shown he can skate with the puck real well, and his passes are good too.

pops said...

these guys have no business playing with the pens, wtf

Aubrey said...

I wanna see Godard beat on the midget...

pops said...

oh yay, another 2 on 1

LOCK IT UP

kstewy16 said...

Holy Shit. Ben Lovejoy. He just stepped out of Sabou's view and blocked the pass. Beast.

Allison said...

Ummm lovejoy just gave me an erection on my none existant penis with that defensive play

btumpak said...

TATER!!!

meecrofilm said...

BAM. Sick.

Lovejoy saves a goal as well.

Aubrey said...

hat trick tonight...mark it down!

pops said...

FEDOOOOOOOO!!!!!


MALKIN IS MAKING HIM LOOK RIDICULOUS TONIGHT!!!!!


WOOOOOOOO

NO MORE SHIT, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD

LETS BEAT THESE CLOWNS!!

WOOOOOOO

btumpak said...

I know Geno is the goal scorer, but seriously his passing is up there with Sid

Rage said...

subtle but nifty? I think it was succulent!!!


WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

M. Vanderlasser said...

More TATER!!!

kstewy16 said...

That line needs a better name than the Euro line.
Something funny about Fedex being from Chernobyl would be good.

Ice said...

The artistry continues.

Rage said...

Please tell me someone else heard that, "it's subtle, but it's nifty" shit

Aubrey said...

Lovejoy is a beast so far

jovi said...

letang should have got an assist 4 that goal ... it was all his effort getting into the zone.

fleuryous said...

Seriously, Malking should not be allowed to play the game of hockey. FORBIDDEN.

It's just not fair to ANY OTHER TEAM that he plays. haha.


GENOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

pops said...

i think its say that like 90% of the goals fedotenko will score this year will be a basically open net shot with the goaltender making a desperate lunge side to side because malkin just made a ridic pass, but also...


hey, you gotta get open to get opportunities like that. good for fedotenko

Stoosh said...

It's Fedotenko's world and we're all just living in it.

Awesome!

And if someone calls a Fedotenko hat trick, goddamnmit, the Civil War era bayonet is making an appearance.

Rage said...

Indeed it does. Ice, indeed it does

btumpak said...

@Jovi


seriously Letang earned that one

Aubrey said...

its kinda cruel to show a gretzky interview during a pens game...

fleuryous said...

And that Lovejoy save was monumental. He's a solid player.


Our D=beautiful.

Stoosh said...

Aubrey -

You are spared the wrath of the Civil War era bayonet because I was writing that while you were calling hat trick.

:)

pops said...

jesus, malkin is breaking ankles tonight

Aubrey said...

@stoosh-
Thanks :)
but i will accept full responsibility if need be!!!

kstewy16 said...

Mellon Arena staff are currently working to find new jock straps for the entire Buffaslug team.

Malkin=Beast.

M. Vanderlasser said...

Time to start "riding the lightning..."

meecrofilm said...

Malkin is so good even his mistakes draw penalties.

btumpak said...

huge PP right here

lets do this shit

Stoosh said...

Stickjack?

Are you fucking kidding me?

Stickjack?

When did announcers feel the need to reinvent the English language? Call the friggin' game.

I blame Mike Emrick because he's the one who started referring to goalie equipment as "paraphernalia".

btumpak said...

vanek total douche

pops said...

yea, peanalty, bullshit. they wont give him nothing.

pops said...

i stand corrected.

5 on 3

its been AAAAAGES since the pens score on one of these

M. Vanderlasser said...

Wake up, Tommy...nap time is over...

Aubrey said...

@vanderlasser-
"riding the lightning" makes me laugh...I can picture you and your brother doing that! hilarious...

pops said...

goddamn it

goddamn it

goddamn it

fucking 5 on 3

fucking bullshit ass 5 on 3


WHY CANT THEY SCORE ON ONE OF THESE!!!?

good period though, but that two goal lead couldve been money

kstewy16 said...

Wtf, Helzberg diamond commercials are back.
I really hate versus.

M. Vanderlasser said...

@aubrey, I can't claim credit for that one...it was C-blogger "pittsburghsteelrocks" (or something like that!) - great idea, though, eh?

jovi said...

LOL @ meecrofilm

pops said...

Is Olczyk Drunk!?

I swear to God he looks like he's drunk

Rage said...

Go Pens! Beat those Hamilton Sabres

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Shitbag slugs

fleuryous said...

I'm liking that there's a bigger gap between Sid and Kovalev than between Geno and Kovalev.


Toooooooo funny.


Come on, Habs fans...where are ya?!

meecrofilm said...

I pass on grass. And The Great Homo. Time to change the channel.

Stoosh said...

@ Aubrey -

No need.

We broke out the bayonet last year to deal with Pens fans who couldn't wait to throw themselves off the bandwagon last year when Sid sprained his ankle.

We now use it for jerkoff Rangers and Flyers fans. Problem is that neither fans have been around. That's probably because the Rangers are one bad Lundqvist week away from relinquishing the division lead to the Pens, and the Flyers have no marbles.

Hillyer said...

if you text "pens" to 81812 it will enter a vote for all the penguins on the ballot and not just malkin. and there is no charge for texting it. GO PENS!!!!!

pops said...

Again,

LMAO at the girl getting NYRangers Stanley Cup DVDs

what a waste of money

kstewy16 said...

@Rage
Anyone who would move the Sabers is a dumbass. They are a good hockey market, there is like no one in buffalo and they somehow have sold 99.3 percent of their tickets so far this season.

fleuryous said...

So...will there be screaming in this interview?


I don't care what anyone says...Lemieux is better, because he's a better human being.

btumpak said...

We (the pens fans) are the #1 in texting

no joke.

Rage said...

My point precisely, kstewy, some people shouldn't own hockey teams. ESPECIALLY fuckers who actively pursue Bailsillie/bailzack whatevs. Yet ANOTHER reason to detest these cocks.

Rage said...

and I would give my left testicle for the opportunity to check the dick in flipflops on the NHL09 commercial

Stoosh said...

Someone needs to smack the dumb expression that douchebag has on his face during pretty much all of that NHL '09 commercial.

Stoosh said...

@ Rage -

Holy shit, that was creepy.

btumpak said...

really mike smith has been amazing for TB??? what

Aubrey said...

nobody ever touched gretzky...its easy to be great when you don't have to play a physical game...and I second the Lemieux being a great human being comment!

in other news, can we get some free candy tonight???

meecrofilm said...

Tampa has been an absoulte mess. Smith has been just about as good as anyone could be in that situation.

kstewy16 said...

Adam Hall got a goal.
Fire Shero.

@Rage
Gotchya.

pops said...

@btumpak


haha. yea i heard that. fantastic analysis. jokes

pops said...

therrien all business. love it

pops said...

ANOTHER 5 on 3!!!

PLEEEEEEEASE SCOOOOORE

btumpak said...

5-3!!! again yes

kstewy16 said...

Well guys, Mike Smith is playing with one of the worst defenses ever in front of him. I especially loved the Dan Boyle trade and the Matt Carle trade.

fleuryous said...

Blogger kstewy16 said...

Adam Hall got a goal.
Fire Shero.


hahaha. That actually made me laugh for a solid 30 seconds. Oooh, Hall.


I'm rocking the Dupuis shirt, so it'd be nice if he buried one.

Uh-oh, 5 on 3.

btumpak said...

i would love some 'tang right now

btumpak said...

CALLED IT!!!!!!

kstewy16 said...

TANGER!!!!!!!!

pops said...

LELELELLELELELLELELELLELELEEEEEEEEEEETAAAAAAAAAANG!!!!

fleuryous said...

TANGER!

meecrofilm said...

the TANG. money. he was so pumped. buries it in the corner.

Aubrey said...

did you see that? Crosby is so great his stick just breaks in his hands....do you think any other team in the nhl has fans who fear the 5 on 3 like we do???

WOooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooOOOOOOOO

just as I was typing that!!!!! BURIES IT!!!! LEGAME!

fleuryous said...

He is SO excited about that.

Love Letang.

kstewy16 said...

Its so awesome to see him get one. 'Bout time.

pops said...

more PP. easy charlie

TIMKO said...

What a pass.

Legame streak ends

Stoosh said...

@ Aubrey -

Edmonton was also the first team to take advantage of an era when no one paid much attention to defense and there was a lot more open ice. It's also easy to score goals when you played in an era where goaltenders didn't wear equipment that turned them into the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.


[WHAT DID YOU DO, RAY?!?!?!?]

fleuryous said...

Blogger btumpak said...

i would love some 'tang right now

--------------------

It's part of a complete breakfast.

pops said...

holy shit, someone just buried numinen

TIMKO said...

Pesonen gets a point tonight

kstewy16 said...

Letang and Fleury - The OTHER dynamic duo.
WOOOO

fleuryous said...

Crosby is like a fucking CHEETAH.


Jesus Christ.

pops said...

that was a sick save, i gotta say

btumpak said...

shit. that would have been sick

TIMKO said...

Lemieux needs to up the "buries it" lessons

pops said...

ok nm, i thought miller actually did something other than get his melon in the way

meecrofilm said...

Damn. I half wish Crosby passed that to Minard =p

Aubrey said...

cookie monster gives the business...give me the cookie, bitch!

fleuryous said...

I'm not going to lie...I miss Kennedy on this line.

btumpak said...

miller got lucky on that... flopped

kstewy16 said...

All these PPs we haven't seen the 3rd line too much. Cookie's got fresh legs, calling it now, he's getting a goal.

Stoosh said...

Jarkko Ruutu doesn't have half the overall game that Matt Cooke does.

btumpak said...

ORPIK WTF

pops said...

goddamn it

i knew this would end bad

Aubrey said...

god bless sid's lungs and legs

fleuryous said...

Sabourin had no idea where that puck was.


Meh.

TIMKO said...

Fail

meecrofilm said...

Orpik is turnover city tonight.

Aubrey said...

was that fucking ORPIK again?!?!?!? i love him...what's he doing tonight???

btumpak said...

seriously first line D doesnt do shit like this.. is he injured?

pops said...

giving up easy goals. come on, boys, pick it up

TIMKO said...

Anyone else here not studying for finals and watching the game?

fleuryous said...

Blogger TIMKO said...

Anyone else here not studying for finals and watching the game?


Oh, you know it.

Aubrey said...

@TIMKO-
That is SO totally me right now!!! FAIL CITY!!! but so worth it! haha

btumpak said...

yeah i have so much work i should be doing but

1.) pens
2.) school work

jovi said...

M.A.S in full effect.

VOMIT.

pops said...

yea, im fucked, i have 5 in 3 days


shit

TIMKO said...

Are any of you PITT students?

kstewy16 said...

Studying for finals instead of watching a game? Please. I failed the only night class I've ever had cus it conflicted with Pens games.

Stoosh said...

When I was heading home from work, Madden said on his show that one of the biggest differences between Fleury and Sabourin is Sabourin's tendency to lose the puck when it's in his feet or under his pads.

Not sure why Sabourin was looking in the net behind him either.

Whatever.

Time to get one back.

TIMKO said...

Kstewy = True fan

btumpak said...

i went to pitt undergrad... grad at nyu right now

btumpak said...

malkin is a beast tonight

fleuryous said...

Malkin just possessed that puck for five hours.

pops said...

our defense is giving me ulcers tonight
