@firefox91 @Crosbyjuice2 As someone in the arena, I was trying to get the people around me going when they were down 2-0. The silence that overwhelmed the arena would have sucked the life out of any professional.
They got back into it when Geno did all the work himself. But proceeded to roll over and die when the Rangers scored again. The crowd has issues - it's like they're the crowd from Gladiator and all they want is to be entertained. Pretty sure they'd ask for a Scuderi sacrifice when they get bored. It's kinda sucky.

@cwb2208 He was back on the bench for the third, I'm thinking he'll be ready to go by next series.

@EngoWaffles Did you watch the same game I did? Despres was awful. Straight terrible. He had at least four giveaways breaking out of the zone. Like, "Here's a pass, Yote, and I'm not going to work to get to you before you shoot it on net" giveaways. I know that everyone likes to blame Dan, but for the love of christ, Despres is bad, and he should feel bad. He has no idea what he's doing, takes stupid penalties, and makes bad plays - and tonight wasn't the only instance of this.
Niskanen did have a rare off night, and Maatta looks tired - though that hustle to save the ENG, man. Impressive.

These refs are the worst thing ever.
@kirk_75 How many SHUTOUTS does Scrivens have? It'll be one more if he keeps this up.
I get really confused when Dupuis is leading the breakout. Anyone else?
Passes to open space...namely that space between the D men.
That Staal-Sutter+pick trade is looking like it might be creepin' on the Goligoski-Neal trade...
Ok no, no trade will ever be that ridiculous, but still, damn.

@FindingNeo Which one? Welcome, and congrats, btw!

Good goal? Stick looked high.
1 year, 6 months ago on Pittsburgh Penguins Gameday 23 - Tampa Bay Lightning
I get the heebie jeebies every time I think about how Sid kicked that puck to himself on the rush last game. I want to see that level of unrealistic greatness every game. Spoiled.
I feel like it's better when forwards fight vs. being down a D for 5 minutes.
Trade Bylsma for a center for Bennett.
PaulMart was so pissed about that trip. And rightfully so.

@Mr. Confidence Can he ooze on Vokoun for me?
1 year, 6 months ago on Pittsburgh Penguins Gameday 20 - Florida Panthers
Guys, I think the Paul Martin thing is for real. He's absolutely astounding. Where did this come from?????
Paul. Fucking. Martin.
Holy shit is this officiating bad.
I like Vokoun just because he decided to mess Kopecky's face up.
@j-nine @2PaekShakur This has been my exact sentiment. Every time he boards someone, I scream at the tv "remember that time you almost died you asshole" but it doesn't seem to work.

Also, "Hurr durr bad pass Malkin," last game, Sid had 3GA, 0TA, Malkin had 1GA, 2TA.
1 year, 7 months ago on Despite being 11th in the League in scoring, local Pittsburgh columnist calls out Malkin
@firefox91 Not entirely sure that's fair, at least re: Martin. He was atrocious last season. An embarrassment to the team. Good for him for turning it around, but I wouldn't blame someone for demanding his head last season. 5 million and sucking that hard? You deserve the criticism.
Bylsma hate, on the other hand, I just don't get.

ENDLESS CONFIDENCE. OOZING IT. ERREYWHERE.

I like how the D just sort of stood there and waved their sticks around.
@firefox91 I misspoke, you're right. I really meant consecutive games. Also Despres out is interesting.
Go Pens. Fleury back to back?
Totally put that link in a thread several days ago. Glad yinz surfaced it. It's a fun read.

1 year, 7 months ago on Pittsburgh Penguins Gameday 13 - New Jersey Devils
Why is Jersey our kryptonite? I don't understand...it's like they have no room.
Maaaaan. Pensblog is dedblog. Bandwagoners.
Thanks ESPN...that video is completely irrelevant. And or FULF because wtf is that shit.

What a joke.

MAF is playing so well despite the fact that the rest of the team deciding to throw him to the wolves.
@pensheart I'm so sick of him taking awful penalties like a baby.
Kidding. But seriously. Grow up.
Really. Trade Geno. He has the maturity of a 5 year old.
@mahstah @pdoggy Lol at Alzner blaming a 'bad call' for ruining the game. I'm assuming he's referring to the high hit Caveman threw on Glass.
1 year, 7 months ago on RECAP: Wake and Bake. PENS WIN.
My favorite thing is asking Siri "Who is the worst team in the National Hockey League" and she answers, "Uh oh, it looks like the Washington Capitals are in last place," and I cackle with glee.
Only time it was better was when she told me it was the Flyers.
1 year, 7 months ago on QUICK CAP: Pens win 5th straight
@KyleSchroeck @FindingNeo I normally don't wish people to get hit by trucks, etc., but I really hope Caveman gets what he deserves. And soon.
1 year, 7 months ago on Pittsburgh Penguins Gameday 11 - Washington Capitals
That hit should make blooper reels for some time to come.
