  1. Well anyhow, it’s a great night for a showdown between Sidney and Ovechkin, and I intend to follow it tonight on NBC Sports.

  2. My name is Leblond…Pierre-Luc Letourneau Leblond.

    His uniform should be 007.

  3. Kunitz – Crosby – Sutter
    Jokinen – Malkin – Pyatt
    Glass – Adams – Drazenovic
    LeBlond – Sill – Engelland

    Orpik – Bortuzzo
    Scuderi – Letang
    Maatta – Niskanen


  4. I simply can’t understand why Duquense is trailing St. Joseph of PA tonight 42-11!

  5. Major hockey withdrawal after tonight’s game… leave Friday for Orlando, won’t be back until late 26th…. this team better kick some major butt tonight.

  6. For planetoid:

    They better crack out the 1-3-1 tonight.

    For Jandy:

    That’s right Spunky.


  7. Rebounds all over the place… Pens need to keep playing smart and counter attack against the stupid turnovers by Caps

  8. This feels like playoff hockey. Maybe it’s because it’s the Pens-Caps. Or maybe because it’s Doc & Edzo? Either way, this has been fun to watch so far. A lot of good chances both ways so far. Sitting on the edge of my seat. And for what it’s worth, I loved NBC Sports showing the standing O for Disco Dan. Great scene.

  9. Ladies and gentlemen, your Norris Trophy candidate……..
    Kris LeTang !!

    1-0 bad guys thanks to Mr. Turnover.
    Thanks for re-signing him, Ray !


    • This is why I LOVE what the Piece said last week after the Edmonton game. Enough of the cute play.

    • First Letang gives the puck away and then instead of simply play “defense” against the man, Letang falls down like he was shot and then waves his stick at the Capital like he is conducting the symphony.

      Trade this bum to the Oilers for Jordan Eberle yesterday.

  10. For as much as it has been said this season Letang should change his first name to “Damn it”…..

  11. And interesting that Malkin did not hustle back as he could have broken up the play.

  12. My only response to the turnover machine is…..”Smooth move Xlax!”

  13. I thought I was tuning to a Pens game tonight.

    I had no idea that the game was being sponsored by Pepperidge Farm Turnovers !
    I will be here all week, and don’t forget to tip your waitress. ;)

  14. Two drink minimum folks…..and no flash photography!

  15. Alright boys it’s okay to shoot somewhere else besides the middle of Neuvirth’s belly.

    • It has been a while since we hit his chest protector, or fired one 8 feet wide of the post…. let’s mix it fellas…..plenty of ways to be inadequate.

  16. Pens being outworked, and outplayed badly.
    On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being best, the Pens are playing at a -3 level tonight.

  17. Oh my… what a play by Kunitz, then Sid to Letang

  18. Wow, is our third ine baaaaaaaaaaaaaad. Could be the worst 3rd line we have seen in a long time.

  19. Goal! Break out your dacin’ shoes Disco Dan! I like the nightlife…..I like to boogie…..

  20. You make me feel like dancin’, goin dance the night away. Yeah right!

  21. It is 70′s night on the biog. Stay Tuned for Charlie’s Angels followed by The Love Boat.

  22. Give me some Huggy Bear!

  23. Well isn’t that just great. Geno in the sin bin!

  24. Yep, let’s leave Ovechkin alone in front.

    Classic quote: “Letang didn’t know what he was doing”.

  25. This is feeling like a game winner from Crosby

  26. Now that is more like it !!
    Mattaa with hopefully the game-winning goal.

  27. Scire Olli!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  28. What a flurry of a finish.

  29. Well, I’ll take it.
    Maddening watching this team play.
    But, it’s a W.

  30. Great game by Fleury, not much being said about his performance.

  31. This was the game mark the date. Taylor Pyatt is there Penguins answer for the Malkin line. Also the Aircraft Carrier for the front of the net on the power play. He will be right up there for Ray Shero with James Neal. Finally a big man,and a guy who will finally flourish with a re-birth in Pittsburgh. I like what I saw tonight with number 17 and Malkin together.
