  1. For Plan and Jandy:

    Go 1-3-1 !!!

  2. Did this web page change ?

  3. Ok thanks, wondering if it was my tablet!
    Go Pens!!!

  4. Drove back from Ontario tonight, you would not believe the amount of radio talk re Iginla.

  5. Malkin is gonna score tonight

  6. One of the things I love about Hockey -non-stop action.
    Loooog time without a whistle that last series!

  7. Hi all. Well this is really a barn burner so far. And I concur with all of the opinions on Milbury. (Sarcasm alert) I am so sorry I didn’t get to hear his blathering before the game started.

  8. Hello Revvie, Mr. Nutz, Hippolicious, Jandala, Sarah Shocker, and anyone else I may have forgotten.:-)

  9. Oh look Iginla on RW.
    Does he play that side?? I’d no idea.

  10. There is a BIG difference between some pro games and others. We’re seeing two highly motivated teams who care big time about this one. Too busy to fight, but hitting everything in sight. Loving what I’m seeing.

  11. Did you know George Lucas has designed a force field around Boston’s net protecting Rask and Chara has “STOP” signs all over his jersey?

    Good to see Malkin more engaged in this one, though let’s hope he changes the trend of going into shutdown mode after not converting his early chances.

  12. Really enjoyable 1st period. Megna looks good with Geno. Rask unreal. Time for Kunitz to join Megna and Malkin


  13. I think all these perimeter shots against Boston seem like a good idea.

  14. I thought this game started at 8:00 CT. Sometimes, I forget y’all are on eastern time. Lived in that time zone for a while. Never did get used to news at 11:00. :)

    Oh well, got my jack-o-lantern carved. Put a Pirates “P” on the back of his noggin. I almost sprung for a dreadlock wig but didn’t have time to shop for it.

    Flipping between this game and that other winter sport that shall not be mentioned on this blog.

  15. I know a certain reporter….. who asked Bylsma in so many words, “why didn’t you get any traffic around Rask?”

    The way this one is going… seems like a good one to ask again…..

    New way to spell joke….. B Y L S M A

  16. Just saw this on FB
    Apparently Semyon Varlamov of the Avs has been arrested for domestic violence.

  17. Ok what are the odds that we score on this PP?

  18. KUNITZ !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. KUNI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. Love those power play goals!!!

  21. 5Hole. Rask is human. KUNITZ!!!!!!!!!

  22. “Oh get that dog off my lawn.”

    Mike Lange must read the blog.

  23. Bruins pressing for the equalizer. Gotta stand fast now.

  24. Kunie got a goonie!

  25. Flower says NO.

  26. Nice save by Flower

  27. I apologize, with Halloween tomorrow and all………….

    Happy Candy Corn Day! :D

  28. Sox up 3 – 0.

  29. OK…. anyone notice how well the Pens defense are able to get to loose pucks?

    Must be great having Maatta back there and even better, Bortuzzo.

  30. Holy chit…how did the B’s NOT score?

  31. That looks like a knee for Martin.

  32. duper just pulled his own tooth sheesh lol

  33. Sox are belting Wacha around, 4 – 0 now.

  34. Ha! I wanna see Borts and Chara go

  35. Borts standing up to Chara!!!

  36. Wow, now Sid has the fever

  37. Martin is back out there testing it. Let’s see if he comes out for the 3rd.

  38. This has to be the best game of the NHL season….

  39. Sox 5 – 0 now with bases loaded.

  40. If that 5-0 score is correct, Neal Huntington’s chances for winning GM of the Year will take a massive hit. Cherrington will win in a landslide. And that will be a massive crime.

  41. Just a little more time left in the career of Tim McCarver.

    Wonder who will replace him.

    Tony Kubek lives around here. I’ve seen him a few times at the post office. Seems like a million years ago when he was doing it. McCarver has been on the air for a long time.

  42. Martin is back out on the ice.

  43. Well, that stinks!

  44. Kunitz out. Tie Game!


  45. Borts got his fight lol Just not with Chara

  46. And there’s the fight!

  47. Dupuis checks Chara, Chara responds with a cross-check in retaliation, no penalty.
    Yep, the NHL is all about safety………….

  48. Remember the game last year ? Doesn’t Brandon Sutter do something late ? Does he still play for us ?

  49. Odds we score this power play?

  50. Marchand is a little wanker

  51. That’s just awful.

  52. Took Letang but not March and when Letang was tripped! Really! Call is slashing…get it right…call diving…embellishment if you must, debacle! Both in box now!

  53. About friggin time…. Sutter

  54. Good call Milo

  55. SUTTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    HE SAID TAKE THAT, BOWSER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

  56. SUTTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  57. A Sutter Home goal!!


  59. I believe I had that.

  60. top shelfed it instead of hitting it into Rask’s chest

  61. Hey Eric, let’s crush him again. Maybe he’ll get us another one !

  62. Its whistles in the pocket time, folks.
    Crosby hit into the boards 3 times from behind, no penalties.

    Buckle up!!!

  63. Nice hit, Kunie

  64. STOP!!! JUSSI TIME !!!!!!!!!!

  65. GOAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  66. Take that Rask!

  67. A juicy one by Jussi!!

  68. Now someone knock Chara into next week

  69. Can we win a faceoff please???

  70. Hey, it’s Clint Dempsey ! I’ll stop.

  71. WHAT A FINISH !!!!!!!

  72. What a game Flower played tonight.

  73. What an incredible game. I feel privileged to have seen it.

  74. OK Loonies I am off to bed. 4am comes way too soon. Loved this game! Loved the final score even more :)

  75. That was the best hockey game I’ve seen in years! How about that pass from Duper?


  76. Hockey at it best!!!!

    Milo – when its gets cold enough – put the hose to your lawn and lets the kids have at it!!

  77. This was THE best game. Too bad the Pens didn’t play like this during the playoffs. Oh well off to bed I go. See you all later.

  78. Pleasant dreams everyone!

  79. That was one of the top ten hockey games I have ever seen.
    Everyone left here have a great night.

  80. Good night, everybody. It’s been fun.

    Wonder what DK is going to say about this one?
