@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.

@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.

Good goal? Stick looked high.
1 year, 4 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, 4 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.

@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.

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?

1 year, 5 months ago on Pittsburgh Penguins Gameday 12 - New Jersey Devils
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, 5 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.

@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.

That hit should make blooper reels for some time to come.

@2PaekShakur No MJ head-twitch from him...
What a save.
@pensheart I hope it's something other than Borty.
Big Bob Bontuzzo. Enjoying him.
Why are the Caps taking runs at everyone on the ice?
@pensheart Adrian Peterson tore his ACL and became MVP this year. Geno did the same thing last year.
@FindingNeo In throat.
I've been making the Geno-AP argument for a while now...
Where's Dillon and the thumbs??
Oh cool NBC - mention the Pirates and how bad they are. Completely relevant
@pensheart Sounded like that's what he said...sounded bad and weird.
Not sure I like the nickname Voky...
DIVE DIVE DIVE DIVE. And the Oscar goes to...
@FindingNeo @HossaShersey Because one of them has to lose?
No one cares about the Harbaughs. Shut up.
@FindingNeo Shoulda saved this. A gem but it's going to get buried by the 'woo'ing
How 'bout them apples? Woooo!
Also, boarding is now the catchall penalty for "I want to give the other team a powerplay"
If I hear "and that one would not go" one more time I'm going to punch someone.
Boychuk looks great.
Dillon was delayed on the thumbs, but as always, he delivers.
1 year, 5 months ago on Gameday 8 - New Jersey Devils
No quick cap? Staff is so soff. Quick turnaround people! We have a game at 12:30 tomorrow.
Every player on the Pens played at least 11 minutes today. Tangradi out forever PLEAAASE
@Penstacular @akus Arrogant whiner
Sid, on the other hand, is back.
Has Geno played a good game yet this season?
I love watching Brodeur move the puck. No one else even comes close.
@Penstacular I remember when the 'listening' numbered in the 300s
Has Glass really been that bad, jobbers? I haven't really found him to be that bad. Actually, impressed even. Maybe I don't know what I'm talking about.

I love student rush.
Simmonds is awful. I understand the idea behind getting in front of a goalie, but hitting Marty after he's got the puck? Shitty, dude. I don't think he'd fit in on any team other than the Flyers.

Is this a power play?
And by his usual self, I mean gagging on the privates of the Flyers
I can't tell, is Pierre being his usual self?

Remember that time Puck Daddy said that MAF was not a clutch goaltender? I can't decide whether that or Mark Madden's "Malkin sucks" rant is dumber.
