  1. SHOOT THE PUCK!

    GET IN FRONT OF THE NET!

    STOP TURNING THE PUCK OVER (that means YOU, Geno!)!

    WAKE UP, ZOMBIES!

    That oughta do it. ;)

  2. So Scuds is out for a month.
    Good thing we have 9 defensemen for just such emergencies.

    Pens need to really concentrate on D tonight. No sloppy play, no odd man rushes.

    GO FLIGHTLESS WATERFOWL !!!

  3. NBCSN has the Rangers home opener tonight. Does anyone know what they did to the Garden ? Will it be noticeable to television viewers or is all infrastructure, amenity stuff ?

    The Milwaukee Bucks open their campaign at MSG on Wednesday. I love the place. Hope they didn’t mess with it too much.

    • The one improvement we should see is better lighting.

      • Thanks, Eric. Yeah, with that signature ceiling, it was probably difficult to get decent lighting with the older lighting packages.

        I didn’t spring for the NHL package so I’ll have to follow the game here.

        Just a note for everyone: NBCSN is featuring the Penguins/Bruins in their NHL Rivals series tomorrow night. Also on that network tomorrow is Bob Costas interviewing Crosby.

        End of NBCSN ad!

        • They did a lot of work to the concourses and entanceways to the Garden.
          Looking at it on TV, the lighting looks a little better.

          Not only does the Graden play host to the Rangers and Knicks, they also have concerts, and a circus yearlt. I think I read somewhere that the Garden is in use 349 days a year. That is amazing.

  4. Agree w/Stiegy and Bob -spontaneous fight – has a place in the game.
    Don’t like the “goon” fights – but did sorta enjoy that one!!!

  5. Last season, the Pens did not go three consecutive games without a point a single blessed time. Maybe the fight wakes them up a bit.

  6. I like the changes on this site for iPhones.

    • It was a garbled mess on my android. Haven’t checked in a few hours as I’ve been on my Medieval laptop (anybody remember those?)

  7. Glass = Kevin Stevens…. LOL

  8. Tied game. Bummer.

  9. That was an embarrassing power play. The hurricanes had better scoring chances than we did.

  10. This feels like a game where we miss James Neal. Need a quick shot sniper.

  11. KUNITZ !!!!!!!!!!!

    HE FLEW !!!! ;)

    • You know, the Steelers may get the best TV rating, the Penguins may get the largest market share in the world, but here on our little blog, it is clear the Pirates drive the # of posts.
      Just look at today………. awful sports weekend, and yet not even 200 posts.
      Very little discussion, even on lengthy posts chock full of info.

      During Pirate season, 5-600 posts every day.

      I still say, I need to pass out candy. ;)

      DK: We go over this all the time. It’s not representative at all.

      • Maybe this is seen as a baseball centric blog by others. I do think that many have given up on the Steelers and hockey season is too early to be very excited yet.

  12. A 2 – 1 lead after 2. We’ve got em right where they want us.

  13. Think everybody’s watching the Series game?

  14. Megna gets his first!

  15. MEGNA?????????
    GOAL !!!!!!!!
    MEGNA ????????

  16. Jayson Megna looks like he’s 12.

  17. And the Pens were sick and tired of blowing games in the third!

  18. Have fun everyone!
    Nice to see the Pens back on track.
    Even nicer to get a W against a division win. :)

  19. Penguins looked a bad team for the first 40 minutes and then looked much better for the final 20 minutes to beat the Hurricanes 3-1. Great to see the leg shot for Megna, he’ll tell his kids it was top shelf.

  20. Scuderi has a broken ankle, surgery, out indefinitely
