Didn't get to watch the game. Wish I could have seen that PK, the NHL.com highlights didn't show the full thing...
Oh and John Scott is a complete fucking joke of a player.
Horny with 6 shots, man I love how he plays.

@Dr. Confidence himself, I've been fine with.. the opinion of him that causes random calls against, no-calls for and infinite misconducts sucks.
him resigning and being a 4th liner at a 4th line rate would be satisfying

@Bing_87 @dvo I guess this was confusing..
Downie/Lappy being excited is because he is UFA and will probably walk.
Comeau being not excited is he is UFA and might walk.
@Ungaba @dvo nhlnumbers.com
Blue = much excite
Green = not excite (Pascal because he is red and hurt)
At least we didn't trade away Cody Eakin, Filip Forsberg, and a 2nd round pick away for Mike Ribero, Martin Erat, and Michael Latta. Two of them aren't even on the team anymore.
I'm trying here....

DISCLAIMER.. THIS IS NOT A PENS ARE ONLY ONES GETTING JOBBED POST...
If you look at 06-07 on the left, look at the top ten compared to last season for power play opportunities.
It's a joke really. This years numbers will be relatively the same as last years, (if wondering, the Pens finished 12th with 278 last year and are currently on pace for 14th with 256). So NHL, you're telling me since 06-07, the players have cleaned up their game THAT much. So much so, that players break all of the rules in the rule book 37% less???
Fuck outta here. Just imagine these numbers if they didn't do the horseshit favor of 'evening' up power play opportunities. Nothing irks me more that a team has 4 legitimate power plays but the refs give two soft calls to the opposing team to 'even it up'. FUCK THAT.
The rule book is pointless unless it is 'puck over the glass'.

@cblack66 I can't trust any of them anymore after they said last year that the play of 'a puck hitting the netting, coming back into play and not being blown dead' isn't reviewable.
I'm fairly certain I was watching and not listening on the radio when this happened.. someone can fill in the details..
I think it was the last time the Pens were in NJ. There was a delayed penalty on NJ, after they touched the puck.. Tootoo makes a beeline towards Bortuzzo, drops his gloves and starts swinging on Bortuzzo, who is pressed up against the bench. I don't think Bortuzzo even got his gloves off before it was separated.
Penalties called: the original delayed minor.. and they both got 5 for fighting.. that's it. Utter horseshit there wasn't an instigator penalty on Tootoo.
As they are figuring this out on TV, Errey responded to whether it would be a 5 on 3 .. "No, it was a clear instigator penalty, but the referees wouldn't put NJ down for 2 full minutes in this occasion"
That is what blows my mind. Whether it's a Pens game or not, the situation dictating what should be called in an NHL game is fucking horseshit. Going back to ignoring interference and holding is horseshit.
Furthermore, offsetting minors for a penalty and a matching embellishment call is utter bullshit. Call one or the other.. either a guy tripped someone or a guy faked it... IT CANT BE BOTH.
I don't understand the Beau Bennett rip-gif-of-the-day.. Larsson made a decent play.. and on top of that, what the fuck is so bad about what he did? Not taking a bad angle should that if missed would wrap around the boards anyways? LOLOK
@Laviator_ @tramp_stamp or Kunitz is there and whiffs.... ZINGERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
NHL officiating drives me nuts...
Them some weird lines. Kill the Christmas jersey team.

@Ungaba @dvo *Ba na na na NAH!!!
@MoonSloth @Mr. Confidence FUCK THIS... IM DONE.
Game Recap (from the stands):
- Primanti's isn't quite as good in Consol, but still sufficient.
- What the fuck do I do with a tote bag?
- Yeah, I love the anthem, but there was no reason to make us sing it. I'd rather just sing along with Jeff.
- 4-0 leads are fun.
- Anton Lander trying to pull a stick off the ice with another stick from the Oilers bench while play was still going on was like watching Peter trying to get that frog out of the window in family guy. Much fun.
- Jumbotron pump up videos during breaks in play were boring.
- Pouliot may sit on Saturdee if Erhoff comes back. Bring him back Sundee for whoever Lucic attempts to murder or give a low blow too.
- Downie hooking call was so soff.
- Blowing 4-0 leads is depressing.
- Knowing the Oilers will blow it at some point helps.
- Sutter should have been on the ice the last 2:30 to get the hatty. Who cares?
- Oilers want McDavid with not even attempting to pull the goalie.
- I saw three guys wearing full suits in the stands.(WITH TIE)
- I don't like sitting near people who don't appreciate trolling other players.
- Middle aged women to my right sang along with every Metallica song.

@jeffurry HBK = HCMJ ... Ric = CFA
Seriously tho... the fuck did I miss with this banana talk?
I haven't gone to a game since the Pens shut the Kings out in October.. GOING TONITE THO!
"But the playoffs! HURR HAH BLAHH" - every dick, ever
Flower is having an outstanding season. His first two Cup runs were phenomenal, not his doing in 2010 and 2011, 2012 was a shit show for everyone on the team, 2013 disappointing.. 2014 not on him..
I'm ready for some post-season 'blooming'.(DO YOU SEE WHAT I DID THERE?)

@Raymond Bowman @Mr. Confidence @dvo the 3 point thing? The only reason I could see (and its kinda valid) is that it jacks up all of the historical numbers.. which whatever.. ROW satisfies the need for Regulation and OT wins counting as the first tie breaker for seeding.

@Bing_87 @Mr. Confidence @Ungaba Billy G would have won the game in OT and the SO for a 4 point win.
@Mr. Confidence @dvo I love the ROW stat. That solved everything.
@brendannn good players are on the ice a lot and are on the ice a lot when shots are shot.
Did you see both benches up and engaged in the shootout? Beau Bennett flipped out when Letang kept it going!
But yeah, the shootout is definitely the worst way to decide a regular season game... no fun, enjoyment, uncertainty, skill, goaltending, or anything hockey-like put on display during those awful things. Maybe the NHL should make OT wins worth a little more and make it easier to score during OT by flopping the goalies. That would give teams more of a reason to try hard in OT. AMIRITE?
(BTW Downie over Pouliot in round 7.. wuuuttt?)

@Ungaba @dvo CLICKING DOES NOT PAUSE
Pens go 16-0 in the playoffs, Craig Ross builds up to much negativity he can't spew, Craig Ross explodes.
But guys, Lovejoy didn't record an assist! WHAT A SHITTY TRADE. AMIRITE?
@Hibbits @dvo @BlackNGoldRules @cblack66 Give up all hope and trade PaulMart to a contender for a mid to low first round pick in order to have some kids get experience... NAILED IT.

@Bing_87 it's a Subban/Letang/Karlsson race for da Chuck Norris?
@Rage SANITY... WUTTT?
@Hibbits @dvo @Ungaba @cblack66 OHHHH OK.. They won the Cup because no one played hard against Sid..
Your points are mind numbing..
@Hibbits @dvo @BlackNGoldRules @cblack66 HAHAHA, mad enough to use homophobic slurs on the interwebs. Nice.
From what I can tell, things seem to be falling into place. They win when they convert on the PP and get big games from their star players. They are nearly a lock for the post season.
Trading every UFA may work on your NHL 15 dynasty, but it doesn't cut it in the mind of any logical GM in the world.
Have you thought about not cheering for this team? Because it sounds like you don't like them much.
@Hibbits @dvo @Ungaba @cblack66 they won that series because Satan got in a scrum.. yeah... it had nothing to do with the Pens being the superior, more talented team.. it had nothing to do with Geno playing out of his mind... yeah, that 4-0 sweep was all because Satan put someone in a headlock..
You're awful at this.
@Hibbits @Ungaba @cblack66 Goddard dressed how many games in the playoffs?
SATAN?!?! That's a joke, his name doesn't lend to him being scary by any means...
@dvo @BlackNGoldRules @cblack66 best way to respond is to score on any PP they get from said bullshit
and to not react.. reacting didn't help much in 2012 against the Flyers, did it?
And you don't need
to be or Despres or Bortz to react appropriately, see Talbot v Carcillo
If not having Despres costs them a Cup or a series, something else went terribly wrong.
@Hibbits - fuck off, twat.. you are out of touch and annoying on these boards.. "OH NO, DESPRES IS 23 AND STUFF! HITS! 5 FIGHITNG MAJORS" .. learn the sport, toddler.
@BlackNGoldRules @cblack66 FIGHTS = WINS .. #Derp
@Lange @Bing_87 Where's your cuh-up?*
Why just not "Where's your cup at?"
orrrrr "C-U-P-S, YOU HAVE NONE"
