    Didn’t you just comment on “other” site?
    Multiblogging :)

  3. Dave G says:

    Pens could lay claim to the #1 seed in the conference tonight, if things go right.

    Let’s go Pens!

  4. Eric Bowser says:

    I am on a business trip in Philadelphia, so will need to rely on everyone for updates. Thanks

  5. scapper says:

    I love Sid, but there’s another exasperating backward pass that leads to Isles pressure and a PP. No call at all for the crap in the neutral zone.

  6. LuckyNKentucky says:

    1-0 Pens, end of 1, Eric.

  7. LuckyNKentucky says:

    2-0 end of 2.

  8. Jandy says:

    He’s been hanging around malkin too much :/

  9. Jandy says:

    how does the Pens do that???? From 3-0, to 3-2 in less than a minute???? AAARRGGHH!!

  10. Jandy says:

    Depres looking decent again this game

  11. Thundercrack says:

    Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun’s name is listed in the records of the Miami-based anti-aging clinic that allegedly provided performance-enhancing drugs to multiple baseball players, Yahoo! Sports reported Tuesday.

    I hate that guy even more now. And he should have the MVP Award taken away.

    I know this is the Penguin thread but I had to get this off my chest.

  12. Jandy says:

    TC I can’t stand him either! Post away, friend!

  13. Jandy says:

    well, we got the win, but it got iffy at the end

  14. scapper says:

    You know how it’s been with the Pens for 25 years now. No lead is safe no matter who has it when they’re playiing. Whew.

  15. LuckyNKentucky says:

    Four in a row, right?

  16. MadTurk says:

    Not sure about the strategy of giving them penalty after penalty then scoring when we finally have all five on the ice. seemed to work though

  17. pattonbb says:

    Amen! Everyone knows Cryin’ Ryan is a cheat. It was just a matter of time before he got caught.

  18. Jandy says:

    if not for the PK and Fleury standing on his head, all those penalties would have sunk us

  19. Jandy says:

    I wanted to shake them with all those penalties sheesh

  20. MadTurk says:

    would have ben nice to see them called both ways, was a little uneven don’t ya think?

  21. MadTurk says:

    not sure how ben came into this lol maybe been would have been better

  22. Jandy says:

    I thought so, but I can be biased lol. How bout Fleury and that windmill kick save eh??

  23. MadTurk says:

    He and the team played very well except for that little let down after being up by three. forwards did not come back deep enough. At least they got it back together in time and get the win.

  24. MadTurk says:

    Well it is a rare chance I have to get more then 5 hours sleep so I am going to try and go get it. Have a good night

  25. Jandy says:

    haha…ben…been…it’s all good
