GAMEDAY [43] -- COLORADO AVS

[Picture+8.png]
21-19-1 43 points.

Last ever Gameday on blogspot.

1,526 post. Two more left.

We have been slacking on everything so we can get the site ready to go by Sunday before the Steeler game, so we are sorry.


Pens lose this game, and Therrien might stay in Colorado.

Sabu is starting, Hal Gill is back. PG

If he can't fix it, no one can.

Sabu starting?

Hmmm...

Go Pens!

CFX said...

let's get it

TheNWChica said...

McGyver? Solid choice! Only man that can save the world with a rubber band, a tampon and a stick of gum.

Serena and Chuck said...

I hate afternoon games.

Nonetheless,

LET'S GO PENS!!

BlacknGold66 said...

Do it.

pensfan871 said...

Great Choice. MacGyver can fix anything. Plus, in an episode he played some hockey. Solid.

Go Pens!

dying alive said...

Sabu getting the start because of the dads trip?

Making lifesaving inventions out of household materials!

rickyaustin33 said...

Gameday pic should include a paperclip, bottle cap and a baggie of Cheerios.

Just sayin'

GO PENS!

Vince From ShamWOW! said...

You should've went with me!

Serena and Chuck said...

PSA

Keyser Söze said...

Do it.

rickyaustin33 said...

Let's hope the Pens watched this before the game:

TheNWChica said...

If I'm not mistaken, one of those USA guys is Keith Tkachunky...

And it's pretty funny that they had a Canadian as the honorary captain.

Sweet Trav said...

McGyver uses an abysmal power play, Tank's broken hand, and a shitty afternoon start time to come away with a win?

I like the sound of that.

Keyser Söze said...

So if the post piece is to be believed and Gogo is sitting and Gill is back, whos on the third wing?

Serena and Chuck said...

I don't think he's Canadian.

PittHockey said...

c'mon macgyver, don't let us down.

Serena and Chuck said...

Keyser- Mindard got called up.

TheNWChica said...

Serena and Chuck: I stand corrected. For some reason I always thought RDA was a Canuck.

Rage said...

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Go Pens!

Please?

btumpak said...

Double J - do it


go pens.

Molly said...

what the hell?!?!?
why is sabou starting?!
he sucks

rickyaustin33 said...

Between JJ and Macgyver, it's mullet day today.

turd ferguson said...

How do you say "I'm dying alive in Omsk" in Russian.... perhaps someone can ask the carrot for me.

Derek B. said...

Only person I'd trust more than McGyver to deliver a win today is maybe Charles Bronson.

Go Pens.

debrisslide said...

MacGyver is solid.

Sabu in net = ehhhhh.

Hal Gill deserves to be back.

norojo said...

Sabu = loss

wilsmith said...

Scuds was a +3 in the nashville game.
what a beast.

Flyer Hater said...

Maybe Therrien's dad should coach, instead of Therrien.

Kat said...

Colorado Pre-game with a solid piece on Mario. Nice.

McGyver? Wow that takes me back.

christina said...

Do it.

OMGodard said...

That Power Rangers photoshop is money.

Go Pens.

Rba said...

Shitty start times for hockey today, 2 1pm est games, a 1pm mst game. Hella-weird. Its evident too, the Trashers scored 3 goals on Florida (it's 3-3 there going into the 3rd) and Carolina has let in 5 Boston goals. Terrible times for games.

So, let's see if the Pens can get a good jump today. Optimismblog.

Btw, when the game starts rolling can someome give us a feed please? tPB took down the links section, which made me a sadpanda.

Kevin said...

Oh yes, Altitude is on, snacks at the ready...

Let's get it on!

[in ABQ]

Stanley P. Kachowski said...

That's not MacGyver. That's Richard Dean Anderson's head shot.

Sorry, yes I'm pissy. Partly from the Pens recent play, partly because I'm just a dick.

TheNWChica said...

RBA: Click me!

This site has streams for a metric fuckton of sports. I lurve it muchly.

M. Vanderlasser said...

Good luck today, everybody.

The Pittsburgh Sportsblog said...

@ Rba: atdhe.net has high quality streams

Rach said...

Do it Pens, doooo ittttttt

PittHockey said...

that charles bronson video is GOLD

Travis said...

Can he fix it?

YES HE CAN

Rba said...

atdhe can suck my left testicle, it's feeds are complete bullshit for me. buffering every 20 seconds, laggy feeds, it's a terrible thing.

chris e said...

Let's do this shit!

holygoligoski said...

I'm feeling a big day for TK..



Do it.

stokes said...

OH hell yeah.

PittHockey said...

sabu is in because his dad is on the trip. wow.

wilsmith said...

and because there's no real reason to be loyal to Fleury at this point.

rebecca said...

woo, in.

PittHockey said...

is it bad when the bronson killcount is more exciting than the penguins?

Rach said...

toofless red head wants some free candy

Keyser Söze said...

foote=oscar.

Rba said...

wow all the feeds are sucking, atd, justin.tv, sad times, but i guess a choppy shitty feed is better than the thrashers game on tv (7-3 florida now)

Rba said...

A message to Colorado from Bob Errey...

"Stop messin around with them snowblowers folks"

Truer words haven't been spoken.

TheNWChica said...

It might be your machine or connections... my Adthe is crystal clear. Sorry dude.

Man I want Harold to kill someone on this team today!

wilsmith said...

that guy looked like he was about to shit himself when hal gill confronted him.

Rba said...

S'all good, im using a justin.tv feed from some rags fan. So no wonder its shitty. Atd wont even load for me, but like i said, an impartial feed is better than nothing.

Rba said...

terrible feed* sorry grammarblog hasnt been updated in a while ;) lol

wilsmith said...

I refuse to believe Bob Errey said to "stop messing with them snowblowers."

rebecca said...

justin.tv feeds aren't usually the best, but sometimes when I have to, I'll stick to them. Obviously atdhe is prefered. But my TV most of all, as of now. :P

Rba said...

im positive he said them.

Matt Gajtka said...

Good pace to this one. Wish they all could be fast like this. Must be the seamless glass...

PittHockey said...

elmoblog

Stoosh said...

Well, shit.

kstewy16 said...

Fuckin ryan smyth, go cry you faggot.

CFX said...

ok, sure.. let's play from behind

rebecca said...

fuck

TheNWChica said...

Fucking Moolay!

Kat said...

Here we go again...

Keyser Söze said...

how much will we let people set up right in front of the net without realizing we should clear them out or maybe, just perhaps, we should do that in the offensive end?

norojo said...

good, now we cant blow a 3-0 lead

Matt said...

What a barf goal. Get one back, Pens!

Meg said...

Is it our defense that is so shitty or is it the whole system we're failing at?

curtO. said...

Woooooooooo...Too many men. Where's the blog update.

Um.Wait.Not that excited for a photo, just the powerplay.

gpclay said...

They're looking like there is no system - just five guys skating around and trying to make plays. Not good.

Rach said...

no shorties dear God, no shorties

gpclay said...

ugh. mud. C'mon guys, do it!

Meg said...

why can't we even fucking set up our power play? The avs have set it up more than us!

gpclay said...

GEEEENNNNNNOOOOOO!!!!!

rebecca said...

gennooooo!

curtO. said...

Woooooooooooooooooooo! Malkin.

Keyser Söze said...

theres the PP!

TheNWChica said...

Wooooooooooooooooooo! ILU Geno!

dying alive said...

Jesus, what a shot.

Rba said...

holy shit a powerplay goal!

Stoosh said...

*Cue Mike Lange's voice*

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!

He showed up at work wearing shorts!

EVGENI MALKIN.

On the powerplayyyyyyyyyy!

Meg said...

SHOCKBLOG!

Kat said...

What!? A Powerplay goal!? Preposterous. Great setup.

Rach said...

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Matt said...

Wooooo Malkin!

But why didn't this combo start the PP? Why didn't this combo start EVERY PP?

gpclay said...

Dayum, what a shot!!!

Matt Gajtka said...

One chance, one goal!

Malkin's first in forever.

rickyaustin33 said...

It was so loud in there I thought he made the save.

Genoooooo

Hip said...

I love a good one timer.

kstewy16 said...

Holly shit, Geno is talkin to Potash when they return from the commercial. Get your tivo ready people.

dying alive said...

ZOMG.

Malkin interview.

rebecca said...

incoming interview. Oh dear, haha

jaos said...

http://www.hulu.com/watch/2342/saturday-night-live-macgruber-3

TheNWChica said...

Aw man! We have the stupid Altitude feed!

rickyaustin33 said...

Interview? Damn it. OnDemand has the Colorado signal :(

Someone YouTube it!

Hip said...

NOOOOOOOOOOOO

kstewy16 said...

Wtf, its Brooksie instead of Geno, Steigy lied.

gpclay said...

Well, Altitude IS doing a feature on Buries It right now...

Rba said...

FREE CANDY!?! Shit, i wanted to hear geno.

Hip said...

I adore Brooks. I ADORE him. He's probably my favorite Pen.

But I can't be teased like this.

rebecca said...

@Hip
agreed.

kstewy16 said...

These new "A Great Day for Hockey" commercials blow.

TheNWChica said...

Ooh! Steve interview coming up on ALT.

That clip of 66 still makes me all goosebumpy.

nikki said...

hey c-blog
how was the first? I missed it cause the internet up at the ski-hill is lame, but luckily I found a link so I'll be watching the rest

jayness said...

Anyone get a screencap of the epic fail on the Gretzky-Crosby-Buries it graphic? I print-screened right as they were transitioning out.

rebecca said...

atleast I can watch my lovely TV Pittsburgh FSN feed.

and no nashville booze it or lose it.

Matt Gajtka said...

Ton of Pens fans in Denver...nice to travel well.

dying alive said...

I feel cheated. Maybe they'll get him during the second intermission.

gpclay said...

And Sid next?? Since when does the opposing team feature two of our guys??

btumpak said...

I'm watching the CO feed and I swear they are blowing Sid and Geno sooo hard - its actually difficult to watch

rebecca said...

Aaww, daddies.

Stoosh said...

Hey, there's Troy Crosby being an overbearing presence at every practice, according to Mike Milbury.

Meg said...

If i hear "the lady panthers look to bounce depaul" im gonna kill myself.

kstewy16 said...

So when Chris Minard was called up, was his dad also called up?
See thats the kind of stuff I want to hear, not the same thing we see every game!!!

Raybin said...

Good job by Sabu in the first. He had zero chance on the Avs goal.

I'm not going to get too stoked over that powerplay goal, which was due entirely to the skill of Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. That was one of those instances where they, in fact, can do everything themselves.

But it was 1:50 of absolute mud and Colorado domination. If they hadn't scored, it would've been one of the worst powerplays of the year.

But, as long as the puck goes in the net, nothing else matters. And hopefully it'll be something to build off for the second and third.

Random thought: Does "Troy Crosby" sound like a hero of a Louis L'Amous novel or a character John Wayne would've played or is it just me?

Flyer Hater said...

Worst PP goal of all time.

TheNWChica said...

Does anyone know if there are any clips with the papas posted somewhere and I just missed it? For those of us not able to get FSP, we miss lots of stuff if we get the opposing feed.

Rba said...

Well, Shanny wont be a Pen, instead, he'll be a Devil.

http://tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=262692&lid=headline&lpos=topStory_main

rebecca said...

@Meg
That made me literally laugh out loud.

M. Vanderlasser said...

@nikki, I'd give the Pens 3 carrots out of 5 for period 1...they weren't great but not horrible either. Sabu looks okay and the Pens got a beautiful PP goal.

Raybin said...

Hey, there's Troy Crosby being an overbearing presence at every practice, according to Mike Milbury.

Why is Milbury allowed to exist, let alone opine about hockey?

He lost all right to have a real opinion when he accused Bob Johnson of goonism.

Jesus, this is the guy who traded Roberto Luongo and Olli Jokinen for Mark Parrish and Oleg Kvasha.

This is the guy who gave Zdeno Chara and a first round pick to the Senators in exchange for Alexei Yashin.

How does he still have a job doing anything but jacking off pigs in a lab?

Rba said...

Well, there goes the Pitt/DePaul commercial again :/ lol

nikki said...

thanks, the internet up here is super shitty
does anyone have a good link they would like to share? mine failed for some reason...

M. Vanderlasser said...

That's a real job? What kind of lab? Are they taking applications?

fleuryous said...

From the first period play, Sabu is playing pretty solidly--his rebounds are pretty controlled, and he can see around traffic to stop the puck, for the most part. That one goal would have been pretty hard to stop, in my opinion.

If you tried to stop Geno's goal, your arm would fall off. WOO 3-42 on the PP now, is it? haha.

Kennedy, get an MF'in goal, because I love you. Scuds, keep being beautiful. The fact that he managed a +3 in the Nashville game...what a saint.

Go Pens.

Rba said...

http://www.justin.tv/rags_2_riches

what i've been watching, it's not amazing persay but it's better than nothing. Coincidentally it's a rags fan named rags_2_riches. I lol'd

M. Vanderlasser said...

Hey, Steiggy is still doing his "Walt Staggers" voice!

nikki said...

hahaha
thank Rba, I appreciate it

Rba said...

not a problem at all. like i said its rough and choppy at times, but its better than nothing.

Vince From ShamWOW! said...

There was one of those assholes with the '77 jersey on with Malkin on it again! UGH! If you post on here and have a '77 jersey on with someone who didn't wear it on it, I will find you and kill your entire family for you being a toolbag.

rebecca said...

I would rather have those commercials on FSN Pitt and :15 seconds of fame, then to have Versus and "I LIKE YOUR BOD"

rebecca said...

I'm saying wow every time, Vince.

Vince From ShamWOW! said...

Rba said...

"Adventures in the Trapezoid - A how to book" By Danny Sabourin.

rebecca said...

gag

Vince From ShamWOW! said...

"You're gonna like my nuts," Rebecca!

fleuryous said...

Those Bodman commercials are not even believable.

No man plays football half-naked...at least not full-contact. That's borderline retarded.

I hear it smells like pooblah anyway.

ACO35 said...

i know this is the goalie in me speaking but that damn trapazoid needs to go

gpclay said...

holy shite that was close

TheNWChica said...

Holy shit! That was sick!

Rba said...

WOW, the net was wide open and they couldnt bang it home, fuck sakes lucky.

Hip said...

Yeah, so I definitely thought they were saying "the Lady Panthers look to bounce the ball ."

Which I thought was a retarded thing to say given they're playing basketball so *of course* they bounce the ball...

Kat said...

Heartattackblog on that last scramble.

Good lord I hate watching out non-pitt feeds. "Did you know the Staals are brothers?" "Did you know Crosby's number is his birthday!?"

Stoosh said...

Rebecca -

Based on what I've seen in the Versus commercials, "Bod" looks like something that came out back in like 1991 and the company never bothered to change the advertising or the packaging.

Vince From ShamWOW! said...

I had Bod once. I never used it. It was a gift.

kstewy16 said...

Thats like the 3rd time that the Jeffrey line has just thrown a puck at the net and Raycroft gave up a rebound. Use that, drive the net, get in his face, and tickle the twine.

rebecca said...

It's absolutely the most ridiculous commercial. Versus also loves some Men's Wearhouse.

@Vince
Shamwow commercial was on last night, flipped channel, and that was on. That was the only line I heard in that whole commercial. god damn it.

to those in Pittsburgh, how about this snow? No 4-6 inches. I don't wanna make an Avs joke.

Hip said...

Well if you put it like that, I think I want my twine tickled too...

Stoosh said...

@ Fleuryous -

Those Bod commercials are directed by the same guy who directed the volleyball scene in "Top Gun". The only thing missing is the Kenny Loggins soundtrack.

kstewy16 said...

Therrien has a major hard on for Talbot. There is absolutely no reason for Sykie to be off the top line.

Vince From ShamWOW! said...

@rebecca:

You have not been fully stunned by my one-liners yet! You must watch my new infomercial for Slap-Chop!

Matt Gajtka said...

The Sid-Geno-Syko line has looked confused in its own end.

meecrofilm said...

I can poop faster than it takes Sabourin to move from one side of the net to the other.

rebecca said...

Stoosh, bod has to be the worst name and everything along with that. haha.

stokes said...

Could Steiggy shut up and call the game? We don't want to hear your op/eds about certain players, we don't want to hear about how there should or should not have been a penalty and we don't want to hear anything else but you calling the game.

Fire Steiggy.

Rba said...

If a woman ever said "Tickle my twine" to me id marry her on the spot.

Stoosh said...

I guess the googly-eyed money stack is the next thing that Geico gets to forcefeed us, now that the Caveman thing has been old for about three years.

Who the fuck decides to pay people for this shit?

TheNWChica said...

Warning: Girly comment coming...

Damn Darcy is so fucking hot!

gpclay said...

WOOOOOOOOOOO

kstewy16 said...

CINDY!!!!!

TheNWChica said...

And Steve is my hero!

rebecca said...

I just heard my dad arguing with my mom because she was taking forever with something. Let me tell you this conversation:
"JORDAN STAAL MUST LIVE HERE, BECAUSE YOU'RE MRS. 'STAAL'."

also, WOOOOOOOOOO

Rba said...

god bless bing

Kat said...

Steve!

Stoosh said...

AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Release the hounds!


SIDNEY CROSBY!

Docciavelli said...

It's weak, but count it!

rebecca said...

I just bought some Bing cherries. This is a fucking sign.

and Vince, my father suggested I buy that slap-chop when I told him I need a food processor.

Hip said...

Fricking adorable that Cookie brought his father-in-law.

wilsmith said...

get out of here, NWC.

CFX said...

ok, so my FSN went black for a few minutes.. changed the channel. Come back and it's 2-2? Sweet.

wilsmith said...

god dammit, is the center drive the new power move?

TheNWChica said...

get out of here, NWC You talkin' to me?

Hip said...

Rba - we should meet. Hehe.



Is it still too late to send holiday cards?

Vince From ShamWOW! said...

@ rebecca: DO IT. I need money since that movie I made in '99 was a big pile of shit.

Team Canada said...

@TheNWChica

Hell yes Darcy Tucker his hot.

Matt Gajtka said...

I think we're gonna have to play Sid and Malkin together the rest of the way, barring the arrival of the elusive "scoring winger." Not that this is an epiphany or anything, but the only player who can skate/play with either of them is the other one.

If that made sense.

Who gives a shit if the other three lines have to just grind it out.

rebecca said...

But what about The Magic Bullet..

the Avs have the fucking ugliest horn.

Rba said...

FUCKING SABOURIN

Hip said...

mother huncher

gpclay said...

How is it that Whitney turnover in the offensive end leads directly to a goal against?????

wilsmith said...

yeah, Chica!

no showing love for the opposing team!

also, dammit Avs

Kat said...

Wow, where the hell is pops. Wolski is sick.

Keyser Söze said...

Once again someone parked right in front of Sabu...clear them out!

Vince From ShamWOW! said...

Wolski sure has stepped it up after losing Stastny. Damn.

jr3131 said...

that horn is so fucking loud

norojo said...

sabu and the defense are fucking garbage

Rba said...

Whomever was calling for the pens to get wolski the other day is definatley cheering right now haha

kstewy16 said...

What if the goals in the arena face east and west? Well then Errey would just look even more dumb than he already does.

TheNWChica said...

Sorry wilsmith... I still forget he's an Av after all those years in TO. And saying that about an Av should get my Canucks fan card suspended too. lol

Stoosh said...

If this is indeed destined to be HCMT's last game, am I the only one who appreciates the irony of him going down with the ship with Sabourin in net instead of Fleury?

rebecca said...

Does MT hate Fleury?

rebecca said...

ah, Stoosh!

Owen Hart said...

It's overshadowed by the number of big hits he has, but Orpik is constantly caught with this thumb up his ass on goals.

wilsmith said...

and with Malkin and Crosby playing together.

Vince From ShamWOW! said...

The Pepsi Center just farted!
