Australian ice hockey player and technology geek
I'm in Australia and this is how I watch games (Gamecenter Live) so I'll be doing so again this season.
As any game is 'out of market' for me, I'm guessing there will a stream regardless of who is broadcasting as it was last season.

Terrible redesign. Have to scroll down to see any of the first article because the top of the page is full of a giant ad/header/extra bloguin header.
it stinks like dirty farts.
but I will fucking read it and enjoy it, because i fucking love TPB.

so disappointed right now but i'm also proud as fuck of the team and how they battled all season without the big guns there to put up the numbers in the tail end of the season.
i will go out on the ice tonight for pickup hockey and have this loss in my mind - i hope some douche wears a tampa jersey...

@Villan @deleted_11399_walterflanagan best cash i've ever spent. its not perfect but for every single NHL game of the season, live and on demand its the best solution for us australians! (i have foxtel but no pens games so far in the playoffs.... PFFFFT)

@Villan @deleted_11399_walterflanagan im in sydney and in the same position. I'm going to go for watching the game the morning after. I've tried to watch games that start late before and I just cant get excited enough. Plus then you have to try to sleep when you're either mega depressed or mega happy...
7am wake up then its time for this one to get started. (thank fuck for NHL gamecenter live..)
best part about being in australia for the playoffs... I can spend all day enjoying this win. 3:30PM here just grinning like a mofo...
worst part - midday games. (aka 2AM local time starts for me.... argh)

@pokecheck @mwn3d nhl.com and their gamecenter offerings are woefully designed. if not for the lack of any other way to watch hockey here in australia i would definitely just go elsewhere... :(

i wont lie. Its 9:46PM here in australia, I am blind drunk after watching the UFC all day, then coming home to watch this game that I recorded..
I was on the edge of my seat the whole time, and screamed like a little girl when kovy made that shot and didnt even crack a smile afterwards
it may be short lived, but i dont give a fuck, its good to be a pens fan, win or lose

As much as i'm partial to attempting to 'convince' people to swing over to my side of any argument, we should really just accept that sports fans will always hate on other teams/players.
To quote an old internet meme - arguing on the internet is like the special olympics - even if you win, you're still retarded.*(disclaimer: no offense intended, but i think you get the point i'm trying to make :) )
I just hope the pens can get this season back on track soon and get healthy. IT would be a shame to end such a crazy season on this note.

@SaintMarty @Synergy http://goo.gl/RKJ4N <- agreed! haha
@Synergy i wont be holding my breath, but it would be nice if he did _something_ for the team. When is he going to return anyway?
@Synergy @KingOfNoPants agreed - just when it seems he is picking up some steam and starting to get involved more and get a lot more chances, he doesnt see as much ice time :/
Great post. I've been hoping TK and PD picked up this season but last night confirmed my fears, and i agree... both are looking at possible trades.
Hopefully we can pick things up again..
