Travis said...

I want your sex Ron Jeremy.

jefe p said...

i prob wont get to this game until tomorrow night. that hurts.

obey the hedgehog.

go pens.

Raybin said...

Best way to put it, staff.

Speaking of staff...DO IT, Ron. Rise to the occasion.

My own thoughts on the Leafs

Go Pens.

christina said...

GO PENS!!

Spote said...

i duno if anyone has noticed, but fleury is up by a handful of votes in all star voting

insane

Raybin said...

@spote

I've pretty much exhausted my text plan for the month voting for Fleury and I've done nothing else at work except All-Star voting for a week now.

I'm doing my part!

[Starship Troopers]

Stoosh said...

Raybin's on fire.

First a Grade A quality motivator, then a Starship Troopers reference? Awesome.

bayonetwork said...

i love the staff for giving me Ron Jeremy on my birthday.

best gift ever.

debrisslide said...

raybin = HOPE.

Tony said...

I better hear some "67" chants tonight....

Raybin said...

@stoosh

Thanks! I even skipped the "He's heating up!" phase

(Where have you gone, NBA Jam?)

@debrisslide

I am immortal. Because no good thing ever dies!

[I'll keep an eye out for you and the chessboard ready]

Beav said...

Missing the game live tonight because I'm heading to the Erie Otters game to see them take on the Sudbury Wolves and Jared Staal. Here's hoping Baby Staal has a great, but not quite good enough game.

Rage said...

Isn't it bayonetwork's FUCKING BIRTHDAY?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Thought I heard that somewhere...a lot. Happy B-day bayonet.

I definitely ain't laughing off the Leafs. Those fuckers are like the energizer bunny.

Annie said...

Am I way behind or something, or are the Habs fans catching up...? I just voted about 20 times for Flower, and it says he's behind 76,2357 votes to Price's 76,6232.

J.S. said...

will somebody wish this c-blogger happy b-day already?

j/k yo, happy b-day.

@jefe...obey the hedgehog? That...is...awesome. Well done.

gpclay said...

As someone who came to appreciate Mr. Jeremy's talent (apparently) late in his career, I have to say he was a handsome man.

Kat said...

Happy Birthday bayonetwork, just in case no one's had a chance to tell you yet...

Vanessa said...

1. Happy Birthday Bayonetwork!

2. Thank you, Staff for putting up a half naked photo of a man for us lady cbloggers (and Charles), even if that man is now fat, old, and disgusting. It's still better than WhiteLips.


LOVE.

V

btumpak said...

I hope we get a 197 foot goal on Toskala...

go pens.

Carroll said...

Vote Flower...it is going to be a battle to the end!

holygoligoski said...

@Beav.. I'll be missing the game as well for the Otters but have have the awesome option of watching it on my phone. wooooooo!


And Flower IS behind now. Gotta do some serious work..

Raybin said...

@btumpak

One of the greatest moments in Leafs history

Raybin said...

DO IT

7, 6, and 5 are my favorites.

4 and 3 show that even true greatness can be full of fail on occasion.

And 1 is simply hilarious.

Allison said...

Oh god oh god oh god. I'm missing the game to babysit tonight. I don't know what to do. I think this is only the third game I'm missing this season and it has me all out of sorts. :(

Cblog better come through with the updates (I'm sure you will)

Raybin said...

@allison

There's an amazing new invention that features some truly awesome people.

Top left corner

My motto tonight is: DO IT.

The Goon Blogger said...

Are the Pens rocking the 3rds tonight? I seem to remember Potash saying they would a while back.

I might just watch this game on CBC so I can hear them talk about how awesome the 3rds are, and then make fun of Cherry for being a hack.

Raybin said...

Perhaps the best way to kill 2:47 ever

pops said...

toronto is a joke. lets win this shit.

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAH!!!!

TheNWChica said...

Should we have an over/under on which eyesore of a jacket Donald S. will be sporting tonight?

Whoo Abbotsford!

Allison said...

@raybin... See the problem is all I'll have for the night is my blackberry, and though I have never tried, something tell me I won't be able to pick up Mike Lange 400 miles away unfortunatly. So ill be sticking with the original plan of reading what you crazy kids write.

TheNWChica said...

For those not watching, the boys are sporting the baby blues tonight.

Kat said...

Jesus...Center Ice isn't carrying the game...looks like I'll be streaming it up with the rest of you guys.

TheNWChica said...

Kat...it will be on either CBC, NHL network, or http://www.justin.tv/dman2077/popout has the Ceeb feed.

Kat said...

Thanks for the feed Chica.

Carroll said...

CBC with the touching story.

TheNWChica said...

Carroll! How are you my friend?

Jim and Craig are doing the Pens game. Whooooooooo! ;P

TheNWChica said...

STEEEEEEEEEEEEVE!

PittHockey said...

gamecenter is blacked out, anyone have a stream link for the game?

PittHockey said...

found one:

http://atdhe.net/ice2.php?i=78

TheNWChica said...

See comments above...

M. Vanderlasser said...

I, Potash likes HCMT's tie...and Max is in the lineup tonight.

Carroll said...

Hey Chica, I'm good! Loving the fact this is on CBC and not the Sens game!

pitt hockey as chica posted just above:
http://www.justin.tv/dman2077/popout

pops said...

canadian tv shows looks hilarious. wild roses? the border? wtf?

Carroll said...

Gotta love that the Pens players are happy Sundin went to Vancouver instead of the Rangers.

TheNWChica said...

I'm very excited that I give a damn about both games tonight on the Ceeb! My main men from the West are on after this one.

DO IT!!!

PittHockey said...

that justin tv link is playing the thrashers game


?

but I found another stream anyway, so I'm good.

Kat said...

@ pops, I always laugh when I watch that Border commercial. Yeesh...reminds me of my younger days when all the shows on Nickelodeon were imported from Canada. Are You Afraid of the Dark was gold.

Carroll said...

@pops- people don't really watch shows on CBC. The only time I ever watch CBC is when HNIC is on it.

pops said...

def. nick shows were the shit. pete and pete. hey dude. all money.

PittHockey said...

this new hnic theme is terrible

kstewy16 said...

Toronto sucks, ron jeremy rocks.

Go pens.
Mad Max is back tonight, hopefully the stress of a contract year is up and he will turn it on.

Wow, just saw the Leafs jersey, looks like they are wearing the 3rds also.

pops said...

i think redoing the HNIC song could've been quite possibly the worst decision ever made in the history of anything

TheNWChica said...

I only watch hockey and curling on the Ceeb...oh, and baseball in the summer because Jim does Jays games. :)

TheNWChica said...

Pops: CBC had no choice about changing the theme...the composer wanted more than they were willing to pay, but TSN was not.

PittHockey said...

oh nice, hawks are on right after us. awesome.

PittHockey said...

I thought cbc was trying to pay slightly less than they already were and the composer took it as an insult?

Oh well, it was still a stupid decision by them.

Kat said...

LOL! The Thashers already scored on Pitt South. It's like the battle of the biggest joke teams on earth...

pops said...

i guess that makes it ok then. shouldve just gotten rid of cherry and put his money towards the old theme. but i guess canadians love that arrogant prick. hell, some people only watch HNIC to see what he says

PittHockey said...

awesome, blue jerseys tonight

TheNWChica said...

You're right... CBC was trying to get a deal and she said FU and took her music away.

Ormiss said...

*lol* Another hat trick for Hartnell tonight. He has more of them than Malkin. :p That guy is hilarious!

pops said...

gotta say, that chick is hoooot.... if shes over 18. if not, then ew.

TheNWChica said...

Who's this chick? Is Jimmerson not doing the anthem anymore?

Kat said...

@ pops, this girl is really pretty. But damn, her voice hurts a little.

kstewy16 said...

Jimmerson doesn't do every game, just the ones the pens need to win.

Jeff Jimmerson is CLUTCH.

pops said...

yea, her voice makes my bones ache

Stilly said...

Motherfuck. Comcast Harrisburg blacked me out at 7. I just got done bitching out some guy on the phone. I'm not a happy camper.

Go Pens!

pops said...

lets hope vesa gives one up on the first shot like he likes to do

PittHockey said...

MAF has a sweet helmet, wow haha

OOCally said...

OMG Fluery is less than 1,000 votes from taking the Goalie lead.... VOTE VOTE VOTE

kstewy16 said...

Wow, between my $100 walmart tv and both teams wearing blue and white jerseys, I am having one hell of a time telling people apart.

johnny said...

"Brooks Orpik said 'Hello'..." to some Free Candy.

pops said...

orpik just smoked some leaf

justincredibleh said...

the ice must be good tonight. seems really fast.

TheNWChica said...

Hey Carroll....think Donald S. will have the red velvet jacket on tonight?

Kat said...

oh god...vomitblog....

kstewy16 said...

Blake is such a douche. I'm sure theres a "hot girl with douche" pic somewhere of Jason Blake.

pops said...

fleury wanted to kill gollum right there

kstewy16 said...

Ron Wilson has one hell of a sense of humor.

"We should call Dominic Moore "Dominate Moore"

pops said...

what a bullshit penalty

TheNWChica said...

fuck

pops said...

thanks, cunts

Kat said...

UGH, wtf?

kstewy16 said...

What a stupid fucking penalty. Use you're fucking head.

pops said...

oh my god. another TERRIBLE fucking call

Kat said...

This game is a clusterfuck. Not to be confused with a Clutterbuck.

Team Canada said...

Beautiful!

rebecca said...

GENOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

kstewy16 said...

Geezes, Have they taken the leash off of Letang? That was beastly.

GENO!!!!

TheNWChica said...

GENO!!!!!!!!!!!

johnny said...

I guess the lesson is, don't hack Geno. WOOOOO!

pops said...

beastly. thats all that needs to be said.

that was fucking ridiculously sick.


he just stunned me.

stunned.

rebecca said...

oh my god

did mike lange just say shamwow?

lulz.

Kat said...

Damnit stupid feed craps out on me when Geno scores. That's what these fools get for trying to kill him.

rebecca said...

fuck toronto.

johnny said...

Need to settle down, boys.

TheNWChica said...

Damn it Flower!

Team Canada said...

What is going on out there?

kstewy16 said...

Fleury should probably never wear that mask again.
He might want to go change right now.

pops said...

wow.

that was weak. i cant believe they're letting these guys do this to them. come on, boys.

pops said...

WOW. NO PENALTY FOR GODARD FOR BREATHING ON A LEAF?

im stunned.

pops said...

hahaha. oh geno

kstewy16 said...

Why does Toskala's mask have a picture of Sharon Stone's vagina on it?

rebecca said...

uuugh

Kat said...

What the fucking hell is going on here!? Get it together man....

TheNWChica said...

Oh for fuck's sake....

johnny said...

Damn,

MAF is looking a little rattled right now.

pops said...

our defense blows. they just collapse down low. and let the leafs walk through the slot.

Stoosh said...

Pens are being outworked.

justincredibleh said...

prematureejaculationblog.

pops said...

outshot 16-4 already? WTF?

rebecca said...

Stoosh knows.

jesus christ.

kstewy16 said...

Well boys and girls, at least we have one thing going for us. Its the Leafs.

Even if they score 7, we can score 8.

Stoosh said...

If the Leafs want to continue to trade chances all night, that's fine. Eventually Malkin, Sid and the rest of the crew will get theirs, too.

If they want to sit back, a-ok. We've seen how well other teams have fared trying to hold an early lead on the Pens.

The sooner we wake up, though, the better.

Rage said...

I tried to tell yinz...

pops said...

christ, the pens miss the net a lot

Rage said...

@Stoosh- that's just it, Stoosh, those fuckers NEVER lay back. In every game I've seen them in this year, their pace has just been insane. Their skill lacks but they try to make up for it with hustle.

kstewy16 said...

Who was that who ended a leafs life on the boards?
My tv hates blue jerseys, I can barely see numbers.

Rage said...

sorry about the repetitive stoosh, stoosh

woooooooooooooooooooooo

failblog

pops said...

ok so thats not a penalty? compared to what stone did?

i dont mind calls but keep them even.

TheNWChica said...

Okay....someone needs to go kick that Swede's ass!

kstewy16 said...

This is now the official 3rd year of the Bob Errey for Jordan Staal's Selke campaign. Eventually he might win one, and Bob Errey will talk about how fucking smart he is and how its all thanks to him.

Derek B. said...

FSN HD crapped out for most of the first, so I've been watching in SD. I don't know how humanity survived fifty years-ish of television in weak-sauce definition.

But yes, kstewey, everyone on the ice in this game looks the same in SD. Except Malkin, who looks like Jesus.

pops said...

weeeeeeeeeeeeak period.

hoping for better

Joose said...

What the hell is up with that snaggle-tooth goalie mask?

kstewy16 said...

@Joose

kstewy16 said...
Why does Toskala's mask have a picture of Sharon Stone's vagina on it?

pops said...

BUAHAHHAHAHAHA

Team Canada said...

I love Ron Mclean.

dd7 said...

albany 2 wbs 1 after 1 period.
Whitney 1 assist and a -1.
Peso with the goal

Ormiss said...

Someone needs to show Don Cherry the Youtube of Malkin giving the puck to Staal for the empty netter. :p But Cherry seems to ignore anything that doesn't support his argument.

kstewy16 said...

Trade Whitney.

He should have at least 2 goals already. What a bust.

Carroll said...

@chica- shiny off white with black dots and the navity scene tie, with red rose. never seen that one before. I would have thought Red velvet too.

he's understated today.

Carroll said...

no matter what you think of Cherry he always supports our troops and gives them the respect they deserve!!

TheNWChica said...

@Carroll...I don't know if I have seen that one either.

I do have to say one thing about Don... he might be a jackass and a blowhard, but it makes me cry every week when he puts up the pictures of the fallen boys. As a daughter of a vet, I think it's classy.

Rage said...

That bit with the killed Canadian soldiers was all class. Sounded like Grapes was choking up too. Mad respect for that

TheNWChica said...

lol We're in sync with our thoughts Carroll. :)

Stoosh said...

People can say whatever they want about Don Cherry, but I love the fact that he always takes some time out of Coach's Corner to pay tribute to some of the recently-fallen Canadian troops and servicemen.

Stoosh said...

Next time I need to post something as soon as I'm done typing it instead of waiting four or five minutes.

Team Canada said...

Love Scuds interviews. He takes them very seriously - all very professional and polite.

TheNWChica said...

Alright ladies.... let's do this shit!

Ormiss said...

Sure, I think Cherry's all class when it comes to his treatment of the soldiers. That's great.

But that doesn't mean I think he's infallible or can't be criticized for other things he does. :)

Kat said...

Who the hell's Darryl Satan. Nice call.

I still feel bad for this Finger dude. How unfortunate.

pops said...

looks like nothing was addressed during the intermission.

come on, boys. pick it up. far from over.

pops said...

great anothe bullshit call

kstewy16 said...

Wow FSN shows 10 seconds before the penalty but cuts out right before the penalty.

pops said...

kinda invisible offensively.

pops said...

aaaaaaand game

Kat said...

Jesus CHRIST...

pops said...

ugh

Joose said...

Wow.

kstewy16 said...

Game? You're joking right? This is hockey. This is the leafs. This is the Penguins. This is Vesa Toskala.

There is no such thing as game when those factors are involved.

TheNWChica said...

I agree....wow.

pops said...

i dunno. 1 shot on goal in teh 2nd? its just not looking good.

leafs are playing great. you gotta admit.

rebecca said...

jesus, come on, pens.

kstewy16 said...

I agree with you there Pops, but still, we've seen things change quickly before, and with these guys on the ice, things can change real quick.

pops said...

dont boo you clowns

Kat said...

I have full confidence we might be able to turn this around but you have to admit, the play so far is kind of embarassing....

kstewy16 said...

Seriously, Booing you're own team... Very not cool.

Please stop being Flyer fans you bandwagon pens fans!!

pops said...

dont get me wrong. i believe through and through. it just seems to me that at 4-1 and getting handled, you just have to shake your head. but the booing is embarrassing. what are we, flyers fans?

rebecca said...

kstewy16 said...
Please stop being Flyer fans you bandwagon pens fans!!

truths

pops said...

jesus. 8 shots.

"that looked like a sure goal" well, it was satan, soooo

kstewy16 said...

Cotton Eyed Joe boys, Its a game.

pops said...

i gotta say, that was a ridiculous save by toskala on satan.

kstewy16 said...

Absolutely ridic.

Might, i say MIGHT, even make it on ESPN.

kstewy16 said...

Two minutes.

Wow.

HORRIBLE fucking time to do that.

pops said...

thats just dumb. he doesnt want to fight. god just took a dumb penalty

kstewy16 said...

Ten minutes ago would have been great, but now? After we finally start turning some shit around? Now we are just shorthanded for no reason.

pops said...

aaaand therrien is emotionless.

Kat said...

Horrible. Honestly....I really have got nothing at this point.

kstewy16 said...

Godard just ruined any possible chance they had at a comeback.
What a fucking moron.

I hope he NEVER plays another game for the Pens.

TheNWChica said...

oh god

pops said...

btw the pens are playing the leafs. THE LEAFS

PenguinsExperience.com said...

Godard, you idiot.

rebecca said...

wow.

Rage said...

@pops-I'm sure that Therrien is FAR from emotionless. Everybody just chill. It's still just a hockey game, and it ain't over yet.

kstewy16 said...

Trade Godard for a 7th rounder and call up Biz.
For Fucks sake. How did that penalty possible seem like the smart thing to do? What is going on in that mans head?

PenguinsExperience.com said...

Just like last game, Godard spends half of his time on the ice looking to fight people who don't want to fight.

Whistler said...

God. We suck. How many PPG are we going to give up.

Philly/Wash/Boston/New Jersey are all playing well. Add in MTL and we are so screwed.

We need to make some major trades and make them fast.

I have tickets for NJ on 12/26 and really want to know if I should go.

What a joke.

Mike Yeo needs to geo..

pops said...

shots are 31-11. score 5-1. it might not be over, but it sure as hell is one sided

PenguinsExperience.com said...

The CBC announcers are actually blaming Fleury.

Maybe if the Pens weren't being outshot so ridiculously that would be true, but this is insane.

Rage said...

True, the ice is tilting a bit, but it's one game. If you base attending a game you already have tickets for on one game, then go be a Flyers fan. Dick.

Yes these are the LEAFS. So far as I can tell, nobody likes playing these guys because they always play like this

kstewy16 said...

I'm sitting here being mister optimistic, knowing whole heartedly that the Pens are still going to make a game out of this, and then Godard just fucks everything up. What an absolute fucking moron.

pops said...

here is a chance to make it a 3 goal game.

TheNWChica said...

I love you Cookie!

kstewy16 said...

"We need to make some major trades and make them fast. "

I believe you should go to letsgopens.com and please, please, never return here.

Allison said...

Ok... I'm not liking what I'm reading here... I know the score cause my friends texting me and your comments let me know that the pens are playing like shitt... What a great way to end a great day *sarcasm*

pops said...

sigh. here is, once again, hoping for a better period.

here we go, boys. wake up. you score two quick ones and doubts begin to creep in.

PenguinsExperience.com said...

I can't believe the idiocy of Eric Godard.

If he plays again for at least the next few games Therrien isn't doing his job.

TheNWChica said...

Hey kids...it's too cold here in this room, so I think I'm gonna go watch in the living room.

Go Pens!

Whistler said...

@Rage

Go put your balls back in your Mouth.

I'm just frustrated. Of course I'm going.

We just need to make some major changes.. Our special teams are in major need. We seem to have a lack of toughness..

I just dont' want to head into NJ and have the guys look bad.

I'll be going with my GF and her brother who are major Devils fans. I'm not sure if I want the harassment.

pops said...

the pens are a good good team. but they do get outworked a lot. its frustrating, but when you have a lot of talent on a team, players begin to think they can win on talent alone. therrien will right the ship, but the east is tight. you can't just say, oh its one game. games add up. and there is cause for concern here. will the pens be ok? no doubt. so dont jump just yet. be concerned, but dont jump.

kstewy16 said...

I honestly don't think the Pens are playing that terrible. I mean, take away 1 lame goal by Fleury, a giveaway in front of the net by Malkin, and a dumbass penalty by Godard, and its a 1-2 game.

Add in a couple bounces going our way, like Vesa not making a godlike save on Satan, and its tied.

dd7 said...

Whitney is qbing the power play down in wbs they are now up 3-2 but he has been involved in all the goals even though it will not show up on the score sheet.

kstewy16 said...

WOOOO, Go Whits, Thanks for the recap dd7!!

Whistler said...

I realize we have some guys who are still injured. That is a minor silver lining to this cloud.

I'm just concerned in our lack of toughness.

I am not a fan of some of the signings this year.

I will love this team no matter what. I have faith in Shero and believe that he knows what needs to be done.

and @Rage. If you ever try to call me a Flyers fan again I'll take your mom out for a steak dinner and never call her again..

Whistler said...

@dd7 I was in Wilkes Barre on business today and almost considered going to the game. I totally forgot that Whitney was playing.

Man, I totally regret not going..

quiteprolific said...

And you know its good when Champ Kind makes an appearance...

homesprout said...

Apparently the Pens are playing Detroit tonight....
