  1. GO PENS!!!

  2. Lets go Jets

    Three reasons

    Could knock Washington and Ovie out of the playoffs
    Could knock the Rangers (the chant of 1940 still rings in my ears) out
    Dejan goes to Winnipeg

  3. PG reporting Geno, Tanger and the Flower all playing tonite.

    DK: Really? PG reporting? Or everyone typing exactly what Dan Bylsma just told everyone?

    • Let’s see how they do.

    • Make that Letang, hopefully Tanger WILL play and propell the Jets to the win!

    • No offense Dejan, but the Trib online has been a little slow in it’s daily Pens updates and such. I had to wait for a personal email reply from Josh to know if Crosby even skated. Maybe twitter is a better place to get this info but for those of us who still refuse to be twits it’s the online paper for updates.

      I mean; Chipped Ice is still only letting us know Sid broke his jaw. Gee, I hope he’s alright.

  4. You mean people are actually interested in this meaningless hockey game ? :)

    Sorry I couldn’t stick around to help earlier but I had a very important meeting that just happened to take place on a golf course.

  5. Not that its any big news for anyone else but I’ve had a tremendous day today;

    First I got to read about #donbrennanspackage and then I just found out that I don’t have to relocate to Charlotte next month!!

    I know its hard to imagine beating that first one but let me tell ya I was not looking forward to charlotte sports!!!

  6. Geno back – hope he is 100% healthy – like to see him have a good game.
    Gonna need him in a week or so even though the team has been playing well w/all the guys that have been out.
    Cup run is long and hard – gonna need everybody>
    GO PENS!

  7. Early goal-three minutes in and the Caps lead the Jets 1-0.

    Frenzied crowd in DC.

  8. Refs reviewing a Jets shot. Looks like a goal to me.

  9. I love that Don Cherry is on the fastest coaches to 200 wins list.

  10. Sidney Crosby is this year’s Masterton candidate. Would someone please check with Jack Edwards & see if that passes muster.

  11. Some poor team is going to trade a kings ransom for Ryan Miller this summer & think they’ve solved their goaltending issues. What a rude & expensive awakening that’s going to be.

    DK: Hasn’t been the old Ryan Miller for a while now.

  12. Washington intermission included an interview with Jim Craig. Looks and sounds good. He is 55 years old now!

    Washington win gives them the Southeast Division title. Win and they are in. Leading 2-0 at first intermission.

    Don’t like it, as a hockey fan, that Caps are going to get in, and the Red Wings might not.

  13. Tons of chances in the first period for the Penguins and after one period of play, tied 1-1.

  14. Kane scores – 2-1 – GO JETS!!

  15. Pens down to 4 D. Nasty high hit on Tanger, Orpik out don’t know why?

  16. Not sure what Letang was doing there, other than trying to give himself a concussion.

  17. Could someone get that puck into the goal for Dupuis, he’s getting all kinds of chances with Malkin and Iginla.

  18. Ott gets 10 minute misconduct… what an idiot

  19. Jets runnin outa time – light the afterburners – Go Jets!

  20. Loving it…

    Iginla one-timer ties it 2-2…. wooo

  21. IGGGY!!! shootin rockets!!

  22. Been a long time since Pens had a right-handed shot like Iginla’s. Adds another dimension to PP to have a dangerous one-time shot from that side. Should open up opportunities for Malkin and Neal on the other side.

  23. Looks like a good goal to me.

  24. The Pens lose to the San Diego Sabres. pffftt. Thank gawd they won’t see them in the playoffs.

    I do hope they don’t meet the Caps at any point. That’s the one team outside of Buffalo that can beat them right now.

    I hope Sid is ok knowing Ovie will win the scoring title.
