  2. Kevin says:

    “Pens Are Streaming Today’s Practice, Local Nun Wears Crosby Jersey To CEC”

  3. Jandy says:

  5. Iceman says:

    Any word on who is replacing D’Agostini in the lineup while he goes to be with his wife and newborn baby?

  6. TK-Noodle says:

    Dominik Uher. Chris Conner is moving up to take D’Agostini’s place on Sutter’s line and Uher is filling in on the 3rd.

  7. Brandie says:

    Hope that Knucklehead guy does okay.

  8. Brandie says:

    Thank you for the update!

  9. macchamp74 says:

    The telecast tonight is sub standard….during power play, they do not even show time remaining…just regular game clock…
    Also limited camera angles….

  10. Eric Bowser says:

    This is an insane night…

    Perry had soccer practice until 7 PM, Pens & Pirates started just after 7 PM, and Steelers are on shortly.

    Watched a few shifts, the action feels more disjointed than last night’s game against the Blue Jackets.

    Crosby vs Zetterberg is going to be funny matchup this year.

  11. Jandy says:

    yeah me too !!!

  12. Jandy says:

    And Brandon Sutter scores!

  13. Jandy says:

    Zetterberg and Abdelkadar can’t seem to play hockey within the rules tonight.

  14. Eric Bowser says:

    Now he scores….

    Calling him Mr. No-Show until he changes that, so that’ll be sticking until playoffs.

    DK: Never figured that one out. I was SURE he was hurt. It was the only explanation … until that wasn’t the case.

  15. Jandy says:

    Boo!!! Vokoun never saw that one comin…

  16. theplanisworking says:

    I cant get the game here tonight.

    I need your updates. :)

  17. Eric Bowser says:

    not missing much… 3-1 Wings Almquist with 2nd goal.

  18. theplanisworking says:


    Do you need another FIRE…….. ??? ;)

  19. Jandy says:

    it’s preseason…for working out the bugs…

  20. Brandie says:

    As long as there’s a bold firin’, I’m good!

  21. theplanisworking says:

    Ok, FYRE BYSMAL !!! :D

    I need more work………

  22. Jandy says:


    Seems Abdelkadar is on a mission tonight.

  23. Jandy says:

    Ugh…that was ugly…they just let Dats waltz right on it…
