Gameday 44: Da Brooooooooons

It’s the Sunday before the bye week, so this is going to be short and sweet. The Bruins curb-stomped the Hurricanes last night 7-1, so the Penguins should jump on the team early and stick it to them. Boston is notorious for playing a banging style game so this will be a good check to see just how good the Penguins grinders are.

Sprong will most likely be switched with Sheary. Dumoulin is trying to get his head back to baseline, I doubt he plays tonight. A win puts the Pens in the final wild card spot heading into the bye week. Get it done.

      WE are dressing 8 defensemen? Something is clearly amiss.

      • UlfSammySon

        I see you survived the birthday party.

        • Andy Pepperqvist

          Uppers cancel out downers.

          • UlfSammySon

            I better write that down.

        • Now let’s see if he survives the bad seeds

    • Ungaba

      Interesting that Oilsack is the odd man out. I hope that doesn’t become a trend.

      SUPER happy to see Dumo back, though, so Oilsack doan matter much.

      Of course, it IS the Broons…

      • Midnight Rider

        Left D options: Dumo, Maatta, Cole, Oleksiak. With Dumo healthy, there are 2 spots for Maatta, Cole, and Oleksiak. Oleksiak has been solid the past few games. I’m mildly surprised Cole is in the lineup instead, but I guess his stint in HCMS’s doghouse is over.

        • Finn Bonzalez

          Oleksiak prefers to play on the right, I think.

          • Midnight Rider

            You are correct, my bad. I’d rather see him instead of Hunwick.

          • PensPointsYourMom

            Could be any number of things. Rest. A nagging injury. A desire to coach him up. Trade dangling (for Hunwick or Oleksiak). A belief that one matchup is better than another. I don’t attach too much weight to it. Basically every pens D man not named Letang, Maatta or Dumo has been scratched at some point this season.

            My guess is the coaching staff liked what they saw when they reunited Schultz and Cole, which means Cole made it in.

  • Finn Bonzalez
    • SouthSideGeno

      NO

  • PensPointsYourMom

    The Ottawa Senators are getting interest in forwards Mike Hoffman, Zack Smith, and Jean Gabriel Pageau. The Sens are getting a few calls about defenseman Cody Ceci. The Senators won’t be trading center Derick Brassard. The Blues are interested in Hoffman and scouted the team on Friday. Defenseman Johnny Oduya will likely be traded by the deadline.

    The Calgary Flames could release Jaromir Jagr and he could then play for the Czech Republic at the Winter Olympics. The Flames have been looking for a forward.

    The Montreal Canadiens are reportedly looking for a top forward, and a first-round pick for Max Pacioretty.

  • Andy Pepperqvist

    I was wondering what became of Joe Morrow after the Brenden Morrow trade. 5’12” https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/cdf88fcffce60706bb63adb8575effd0a26dadecdf8a4d64a203b74d1bb78450.jpg

      • Andy Pepperqvist

        Murray needs to find his mojo.

        • PensPointsYourMom

          Maybe Murray has no regular season mojo…not saying that’s the case, just saying its possible.

          • Andy Pepperqvist

            Might be. Rust fits that description perfectly.

      • randy

        Good one. But why jelly jar? Is it because the honey jar is reserved for Hunwick?

        • UlfSammySon

          That’s basically girlfriend/wife being mad at you talk.

    • Midnight Rider

      Because Phil and Geno are having such terrible seasons on the same line.

      • PensPointsYourMom

        salty AF

        • Midnight Rider

          I get that separating the 3 was key to the ’16 Cup run. But Geno and Phil have great chemistry and results; and breaking them up just seems like trying to fix something that isn’t broken.

  • PensPointsYourMom

    I’d like to see Hags play with Phil and Schnackal. That line is defensively inept with Shary on LW (honestly, the whole line is defensively inept). There is no one to go into the corner and get the puck so Phil and Jake can dangle. With Horny on Geno’s line, Sheary seems like a better fit there. But what do I know?

  • Finn Bonzalez
    • randy

      He must have hired a translator for that.

      The real Geno: “Is life? No. Is hockey.”

    • SouthSideGeno

      Is the Geno shoveling my driveway????

      • el Wray

            I’ll take famous titties for 1000 Alex

    • Ungaba

      Yes. But warming up starting today. -5 F this am, currently 25. 40 tomorrow.

      • Islander

        It’s minus 11 f here

        • Ungaba

          • Islander

            Until I die of hypothermia

          • Ungaba

            Right. So stay in and watch the Pens!

          • Islander

            I don’t get that game, getting game center this week though

    • randy

      I had about 20C during the day and about 10C at night. Like a cool summer day in Vancouver here in the mountains.

      • Islander

        I hate you Vancouverites and You’re blooming trees in February lol

        • No, YOU’RE blooming trees in February!!

          • Ungaba

            Still not over The Takei Incident? I get it. Sounded terrifying.

          • Islander

            Who did he violate now?

          • The Takei Incident is my favorite 1980s underground New York punk band

          • Ungaba

            What’s crazy is I believe you.

        • randy

          Yeah it’s hard for me not gloat, but this weather is frkn perfect. Not talking about Van though. My daughter’s telling me it’s the usual ‘haven’t seen the sun in 3 weeks’ kind of crap.

          • Islander

            I can’t see the sun cause my eyes are frozen shut

  • SouthSideGeno

    FUCK THE JACKOFFVILLE JAGOFFS

  • randy

    I’m at a baby shower scheming on how to get out to watch the game. Drinking my gf’s dad’s ~120 proof tequila that he’s been aging in a barrel. Apparently the little bits in the tequila is a good thing. Anyway, doan wanna look like fruitcake in front of her dad who is a farmer. Don’t really care, I’m sure he already knows I’m a pansy because I don’t own ANY fields. Let alone any cattle. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/acab57028e98062f7c72aff67ab15566f4dc685b78da73c83446365b9da9a97f.jpg

    • Andy Pepperqvist

      Those bits used to be the worm before it dissolved.

      • randy

        Nah you’re thinking of the maguey worm they put in mezcal

        • Andy Pepperqvist

          I’ve seen it in tequila in Mexico, too. Really just making a reference to the ridiculous alcohol percentage.

          • randy

            Yeah you’re right, it’s just super uncommon. It’s mostly a gimmick to sell mezcal. Here’s a scorpion in the mezcal I bought in Oaxaca

            https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/925d7424dcc9b5704a48b4c5b0645d93af1029cd5fe42bd5087f9d3365b53c60.jpg

          • Andy Pepperqvist

            I hate tequila so much. I will drink almost anything else.

          • randy

            What kind?

          • Andy Pepperqvist

            Pretty much all of them. Some of the darker ones are almost tolerable, but silvers are gross.

          • randy

            Yeah some of these will give you a nasty headache / hangover (like Jose Cuervo which is 51% tequila) but my fav. tequila is Herradura brand because the Mexicans drink a lot of it. Doesn’t make me feel like ass after. I’ll regret drinking my gf’s dads stuff tomorrow

          • SouthSideGeno

            I have never had a headache/hangover from drinking Tequila…that’s one of the reasons I love it.

            Your father-in-law may be right about you being a sissy poontang…jussayin

          • randy

            You must have avoided Jose Cuervo Especial then? The stuff that gives tequila a bad name?

          • SouthSideGeno

            Nope…weaned on that tidday in college

          • randy
          • SouthSideGeno

            The kind that’s in front of me…

          • SouthSideGeno

            Tequilla is the only drink…that isn’t beer

          • Sleve_Scoobert_HawtDoge

            I love you. Tequila sux

          • gutsgonebad

            I love mezcal. I could care less about the worm, I just think the flavor is that much better than Tokillya

          • SouthSideGeno

            I like em both…hic!

          • randy

            Yeah right? I’m getting into it a lot more than tequila. More unique and interesting flavours

          • gutsgonebad

            I use to drink tequila all the time, but after I started drinking mezcal, I just lost the taste for tequila.

          • SouthSideGeno

            I drink Mezcal as a chaser for my Tequila….hic!

          • gutsgonebad

            I chase it with napalm bitch

      • PensPointsYourMom

        Hags is playing with Geno and Phil is playing with Jek tho I think.

        • gutsgonebad

          That final shift had Phil and hags on it. I wasn’t paying to close att. for a majority of the period though

  • UlfSammySon

    Big crowd here tonight. Like it.

  • Jovi

    i don’t want this period to end

  • el Wray
  • gutsgonebad

    Jagr watch?

    • Penguin in Houston

      No way

      • gutsgonebad

        Just joking

  • Midnight Rider

    Anyone catch the names of these NBCSN clowns? (for HP purposes)

    I’m guessing not by the entries so far…

    • UlfSammySon

      Not yet. My feed is from Russia or something, so I get all weird stuff for commercials/intermissions.

      • Midnight Rider

        They might be the Broons D-team broadcasters. Play-by-play guy is pretty porny, color guy is useless.

        • UlfSammySon

          Yep. He’s throwing #HP out with reckless abandon.

          • Midnight Rider

            Fav so far: “In deep, it’s Evgeni Malkin, he’ll stretch it out.” — Play-by-play guy.

        • Midnight Rider

          Unrelated thought: why are there literally no women play-by-play or color announcers in the Chel?

          • Who Really Cares

            Calgary has one

          • Midnight Rider

            Thanks for the heads up. Going to try to listen next time the Pens play the Flames.

    • Jovi

      “We don’t need no stinking names”

    • PensPointsYourMom

      Forslund is the PbP guy…Brickley? is the color commentator.

      • Midnight Rider

        Thank you.

    • randy

      John Foreskinland?

      • Penguin in Houston

        Dick Hymen?

      • Midnight Rider

        Thanks.

        • PensPointsYourMom

          Im 100% ok with calling him Foreskin

          • Midnight Rider

            done and done.

  • Door_Matt

    Guys guys guys… I have big news. Jagr is leaving the Flames… Grampy Jim is gonna bring him home!!! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/06d135dc08ed91cc43f82c694390a508480583989425ff5c969bb97767d76be5.jpg

    • Penguin in Houston

      Not gonna happen

      • Door_Matt

        Maybe it will, maybe it won’t. However, there is no better use of $1M cap space I can think of right now without losing assets.

        • Penguin in Houston

          45

          • Door_Matt

            Archibald isn’t on the team anymore.

          • Penguin in Houston

            Duh

          • Door_Matt

            You want to spend $1M on an undersized 25-yo player that played 3 games this season and has a total of 5 pts in 21 Chel games?

            (He’s also under contract with the Yotes until 2019.)

          • gutsgonebad

            She was just talking about Jagr’s age, not a jersey number

          • Penguin in Houston

            Me thinks he has HUA Syndrome.

          • Penguin in Houston

            Jagr is 45 years old. Time to retire.

  • Jovi

    every time Malkin makes a drop pass, an angel gets shot down

  • Ungaba

    Pens may be the Pens again…

    • PensPointsYourMom

      YSYWMRN!

      • PensPointsYourMom

        oh wait, you mean the good pens, nevermind.

    • randy

      Let’s see if we can win 2 in a row first

  • Jovi

    if Sid wasn’t built like a tank, it would be quite impossible for him to play against Chara the way he does.

  • Jovi

    @randy our shoot total is gonna be like 60

    • Ungaba

      I hope it’s 69

    • randy

      Wut? We’re at 12 shots so far

  • PensPointsYourMom

    The fuck is a “riblet?”

    • Ungaba

      A wee baby rib?

    • Andy Pepperqvist

      It’s pig vertebrae. I used to work there and that was the rumor. Fairly sure it’s true.

  • PensPointsYourMom

    Yuck

    • PensPointsYourMom

      The Pens invented that play.

      • randy

        You jinxed it with rible… not gonna say it.

  • Jovi

    uuuuugh BALLS.

  • Andy Pepperqvist

    I hate the Bruins.

    • Penguin in Houston

      I hare everything Bahstun.

  • Jovi

    ARRRRRRRRGH. BURN IT DOWN

  • xpensfanSC

    Yikes

  • gutsgonebad

    Puke errywhere

  • Penguin in Houston

    So much for improvements

  • Jovi

    Time out! Time the hell out!

  • Ungaba

    Wtf

  • randy

    Thanks Hag’s balls!

    • Ungaba

      Srsly. Jeezus.

  • Andy Pepperqvist

    Time to see if this team has a sack.

  • Ungaba

    Letang. Jeezus

  • Big Poppa Vlad

    Can we play a second period?

    • randy

      No.

  • PensPointsYourMom

    I don’t know if I can do it anymore…

  • xpensfanSC

    Holy shit what were we don’t there?

    • randy

      yeah. Don’t there??

  • Andy Pepperqvist

    Letang put that on his tape. Terrible.

  • Ungaba

    Well shit

  • UlfSammySon

    I run to the store for 10 minutes and this game goes to hell! WTF?

  • Nolongermyrealname91

    LeTurnovers

  • PensPointsYourMom

    Let the Boston-commentator fellatio begin.

    • Andy Pepperqvist

      Began at 7:38, actually.

  • Big Poppa Vlad

    all we need is one to tie it up going into the 3rd..

  • So from the airport to home we somehow got scored on 3 times? wut

    • UlfSammySon

      You should have let that man masturbate in peace!!

  • Big Poppa Vlad

    that was a can opener on Crosby….

    • Andy Pepperqvist

      No kidding. Pretty cheap.

      • Big Poppa Vlad

        Pretty much a penalty.

  • randy

    Any one else nervous about that dumo hit?

    • Andy Pepperqvist

      Not as much as the Sid one.

  • xpensfanSC

    Wake the fuck up

  • gutsgonebad

    unreal

    • Andy Pepperqvist

      Some lucky goddamn bounces.

      • xpensfanSC

        Some bad hockey

        • Andy Pepperqvist

          that, too.

          • UlfSammySon

            We’re going dahn to the wire in fantasy, pepper.

  • Elite sniper Matt Hunwick

    • Penguin in Houston

      He needs to go away.

  • gutsgonebad

    The zebras finally make a call

    • xpensfanSC

      It’s the pens the refs favor us. Clearly

    • Andy Pepperqvist

      Boston defensive strategy: Interfere, hook, hold, slash, cross-check, block shot, clear puck.

      • Penguin in Houston

        They watched Rounds 1 and 2 last year.

        • Dj_Taktix

          They got a great look at Round 2… from their couches!

  • randy

    I missed last game and the first period of this game. So far I’ve seen pens get out scored 8-0 since we got outclassed by Carolina

    • Andy Pepperqvist

      Still Letang’s fault.

  • gutsgonebad

    THANKYOU GENO

  • Big Poppa Vlad

    Nice! Geno!

  • Andy Pepperqvist

    Fuck you and those cross checks.

    -geno

  • what an execution. Let’s go El_Wray

    • el Wray

      Love the hop celly

    • UlfSammySon

      and jagrmeister!

  • Who Really Cares

    I walk away for a bit and miss everything… ok

    • You walked away for like seven months

      • UlfSammySon

        …will they get back together??

      • jones

        speaking of being away for a while… what ever happened to positivity blog?

      • Who Really Cares

        Eh, I have a bad internal sense of time

        Oh wait I get it, nvm

  • randy

    Dumo looked really rattled after that hit off the chin. Didn’t he just come back from a concussion?

    • UlfSammySon

      Yerp.

      • randy

        Ferk.

  • j-b0t

    So…

    Goalie controversy? I haven’t been able to watch any of the game.

  • jagrmeister

    My pensboner was raging after the first, but getting dominated by marchand and co certainly made it flaccid 🙁

    • Are you WITH @rmbarch:disqus or do you happen to just be at the same game?

      • jagrmeister

        Just happen to be at the same game. Not sure where he’s at. I’m in 231

        • you guys gotta get together!

          • UlfSammySon

            MEAT UP: part deux

          • Andy Pepperqvist

            Mini meat

  • Zooker

    As compelling as both Murray and Jarry are as long term guys in net, I think there are bound to be some pretty rough spots when the two combined are only 10 years older than Fleury was. No “calming voice”

  • Jovi

    i’d really like a goal by Jake

    • Jovi

      But that goal will do too

  • gutsgonebad

    RILEY

    • j-b0t

      Sniper elite

  • Jovi

    AND we’re back in the game!

  • el Wray

    8/10 goals have been scored at one end of the ice. I hope nobody investigates until after the Pens score 2 more.

    • randy

      Your end? What a game to be at tho.

      • el Wray

        I’m on the opposite blue line

  • Dj_Taktix

    SheBOOOOOOM!

  • Jovi

    Knuckles is having a great game.
    he totally just broke some guys ankles.

    • el Wray

      He’s looked good, having a hell of a game

  • PensPointsYourMom

    Horny gonna shake the vending machine and see if he can get the chips to fall.

  • Dj_Taktix

    Every time the announcers say Hunwick’s name, it’s something bad, like “just out of the reach of Hunwick”.

    I cringe every time I hear Humdick’s name…

    • PensPointsYourMom

      Is Hunwick this year’s Maatta?

      • Dj_Taktix

        Maatta beat cancer.

        Hunwick is this year’s Bortuzzo…

        • Andy Pepperqvist

          He’s Perron on defense.

          • Jovi

            ouch

  • PensPointsYourMom

    his shot swallowed by Murray – Foreskin #HP

    • randy

      Jovi will vote for that one

  • randy

    “His shot swallowed by Murray” – John Foreskinland #hp

  • Dj_Taktix

    NBCSN must have a great graphics guy to prevent Marchand from looking like a the rat bastard that he is…

    • Andy Pepperqvist

      Weird, he still looks like a rat bastard on my tv.

      • PensPointsYourMom

        mine too.

  • Jovi

    geez, Jake can’t steal one

    • Zooker

      Bouncing puck there. Little bit “snake” bit? Irony abounds

      • Dj_Taktix

        On the replay, it looks like Rask just got his shoulder up on it. An inch or two higher and that would have been the go ahead goal…

  • Zooker

    Anybody notice that Sid not automatically passing pucks back to the point as much? Pretty good chemistry developing quickly with Sprong. Good to see

    • Dj_Taktix

      Sprong whiffed on at least two perfect setups by Crosby tonight. A few more games to get their timing down and that pair is going to be simply murdah…

      • el Wray

        There was another that Crosby couldn’t get to him in the 1st. The pair has been strong.

  • randy

    Only 3 shots swallowed by Murray this period. Pens with 15 shots

  • Zooker

    Holy shit that would have been incredible. What a look by Sid there

    • PensPointsYourMom

      Sid learned how to putt.

      • Zooker

        Malkin looks fully intent to come along for the ride too. He’s showing that edge he gets when he’s settling into “I’m goal” mode

  • Dj_Taktix

    Let’s!

    • PensPointsYourMom

      GO

      • Jovi

        pens; end it in OT

  • PensPointsYourMom

    It squirts off the stick of Krejci – Foreskin #HP

  • gutsgonebad

    R U FUCKING SERIOUS

  • PensPointsYourMom

    Bullshit that a penalty shot

  • Andy Pepperqvist

    Rat face fuck.

  • gutsgonebad

    MMX 4 LIFE

    • Andy Pepperqvist

      What struggles?

  • Zooker

    Holy balls is that big. Hasn’t been his specialty, but just clutch

  • Dj_Taktix

    And He said no.
    And He saves.

  • gutsgonebad

    Holy shit, my hearts about to explode

  • Andy Pepperqvist

    This is the most invested the crowd has sounded since Schultz scored in SCF Game 5 last June.

    • PensPointsYourMom

      was about to say it sounds electric at PPG

      • Andy Pepperqvist

        Hell yes. If the crowd is finally feeling it, the players probably are, too.

  • Jovi

    sphincter release. time to breathe

    • Finn Bonzalez

      Which sphincter?

  • Penguin in Houston

    Sid with the winner!

    • randy

      I wanna say / see Sprong with the winner

    • jones

      My web stream is so late, that for a second I thought we had this…

  • randy

    I think we got this in OT. Rask’s luck ends here.

    • Andy Pepperqvist

      Shhhhhh. No jinxies.

    • Andy Pepperqvist

      Now I can “like” it.

      • randy

        Meh, we killed them in the 3rd. I could’ve bet my house on an OT gola

  • Zooker

    Ok Sid, history and I believe Jay Caufield have taught us that
    3ass=1 goal. How’s about a 2 goal night?

  • PensPointsYourMom

    ASKH|NGF”INFWE”QKEMNW”PFMWE”FPIMWEF””!!!!!!

    • jones

      WHAT?!

      • PensPointsYourMom

        keyboard mash…so many feels.

        • You still got”WE” in all caps in quotes

          • PensPointsYourMom

            hockey gods…you ok today…you’re not wondering if every dude you see is jacking it to visions of your nakedness?

          • When we were unpacking I realized I don’t have my swimming trunks. I must have left them there. Well.. there they go

          • PensPointsYourMom

            One lucky fan got a souvenir….how long do you think they’ll smell like you?

          • You know he might actually be really embarrassed that I caught him 50/50 raffling in the shower

          • PensPointsYourMom

            maybe. I caught a dude looking over a stall one time, and he basically ran away muttering that he was really sorry.

    • Zooker

      My thoughts exactly

    • gutsgonebad

      That’s wat she said

  • gutsgonebad

    GENOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo

  • Andy Pepperqvist

    Full release

  • Jovi

    WPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH

  • Penguin in Houston

    Geno Machino!

  • Who Really Cares

    The stars are coming out tonight!

  • PensPointsYourMom

    Game bithes.

    • Penguin in Houston

      Get that fuqing RAT Face Boy outta our house!

      • PensPointsYourMom

        fucking A!

      • Andy Pepperqvist

        Rask reminds me of Roger from American Dad. Not sure why.

        • PensPointsYourMom

          All I know is that he’s extremely weird looking. Like Skeletor bought really expensive synthetic skin.

          • UlfSammySon

            I always get a Skeletor vibe from him.

  • PensPointsYourMom

    Sid is a such a beast 3v3

    • gutsgonebad

      Just owns it around the net

  • Andy Pepperqvist

    Well, I had fun. Enjoyed spending it with you guys.

    • PensPointsYourMom

      Likewise.

      • Andy Pepperqvist

        I’m gonna have a late night tomorrow with the National Championship.

    • UlfSammySon

      Glad to have ya.

  • SouthSideGeno

    MY MALKIN

    • randy

      Two clutch af goals tonight

      • Andy Pepperqvist

        That one at the end of the second shouldn’t be understated.

    • Jovi

      ‘OUR’

      • SouthSideGeno

        ….no…as in MY GAWD

  • Dj_Taktix

    Didn’t want to jinx it, but I knew Malkin was going to get this one. I even wrote it on a scrap of paper, and I’d show you, but it’s a little soiled now…

  • Zooker

    Dude in the 3rd jersey got some serious air on that one. Get him a Pitt Basketball uniform..

    • PensPointsYourMom

      I saw that. Seriously lift.

  • Penguin in Houston

    Back in the playoffs!

  • jones

    still no score on my stream LOL

  • randy

    WE WON 2 GAMES IN A ROW!

  • Door_Matt

    Not sure if it was the penalties, but Kuhn and She-Bang had 10+ minutes (Reaves ~6:30 mins). Not a bad total for the 4th line

  • Ungaba

    SHit. We need money for El Wray now

    • Jovi

      how about we just get him a job on the clean up crew. have the pens pay him.

      • Ungaba

        DEal. Ice crew.

        • Jovi

          ice crew works too. i was thinking the person who cleans up the vomit.

        • el Wray

          I look good in booty shorts. I know that’s not what the ice crew wears, I’m just saying it.

          • randy

            I’m sure they could start

    • el Wray

      And Jagrmeister. This just got expensive.

  • PensPointsYourMom

    NBC is doing the highlights, and they are only doing the BOS goals.

    • gutsgonebad

      They were forced to show 1 Pens goal

      • PensPointsYourMom

        11 fucking goals and I saw highlights of 3 pens goals.

  • Door_Matt

    Also, Jarry needs to forget tonight and worry about his positioning. Two of those goals were unavoidable.

  • Big Poppa Vlad

    WE had a terrible 2nd.. but ended it with Crosby and Geno saying we aren’t fucking done. tied it up by the 4th line, Crosby and Geno schooled them around a bit in the OT and put it down their throats.. 2nd half of the season and its starting to click… one trade will happen and we will be off to the races…

    • Door_Matt

      One trade and One FA signing 😉

  • Andy Pepperqvist

    Phil and Geno are so automatic in OT, several fans behind the goal had already jumped out of their seats before the pass.

  • Door_Matt

    Btw, that Marchand fall was bullshit. Dirty ass rat face.

    • PensPointsYourMom

      fucking hate that guy. I may hate him more than anyone else in the league, him and Tom Wilson.

      • jones

        them, and Milan Lucy

        • PensPointsYourMom

          yeah but now that he’s out west, its not the same familiarity/hate.

          • Door_Matt

            Yeah I really don’t have much to say about Lucic since he went out west

          • jones

            yeah, doucheinsky took his place

          • Andy Pepperqvist

            I hate Dubinsky, M Staal, and Tom Wilson almost equally. So nice the Pens have a guy that could murder any of them with his bare hands.

        • Penguin in Houston

          Frankenchara

      • Dj_Taktix

        I don’t know, I really fucking hate Matt Calvert too…

        • PensPointsYourMom

          forgot about that guy. Yeah, I haven’t hated him as long though, so he’s gotta get in line.

          • Penguin in Houston

            Chris Neil

          • PensPointsYourMom

            too old.

        • Andy Pepperqvist

          Bobby Ryan’s face

        • Penguin in Houston

          Doan forget Doucheshitsky

  • Door_Matt

    Shit guys… I feel so fucking bad for Roenick. You could tell he was mentally struggling on that GWG replay analysis.

    • Jovi

      ??? Really? I think you’re over reading this

    • Dj_Taktix

      I missed it, as my completely legal internet stream cut off before post game.

      Were to water works coming again? Did he go out for a little post game whaa burger and some french cries?

      • Door_Matt

        Nah, a complete stutterfest trying to just describe a give and go

        • Jovi

          could it be that he just not smart?

          • Door_Matt

            No it’s almost a sure sign it’s CTE. Dude has had more concussions than Antonio Cromartie has kids.

  • Dj_Taktix

    I’m starting to really like Oleksiak. He has the bulk to clear the net area without risking a cross-check, can actually put a blue-line shot on net, and his full first name is Jamieson which is close enough to Jameson and that’s pretty cool…

  • PensPointsYourMom

    JR says Gensell…like I needed another reason to hate him.

  • Jovi

    Kris has still yet to master the word “the”. “Gotta get open for ‘da’ guys”.

    • Door_Matt

      It’s a Pixburgh thing.

    • SouthSideGeno

      …DA is a word

  • Jovi

    Great! Now NBC is talking about trading Kris.

    THANKS UNGABA!

    • Door_Matt

      He *is* currently overvalued…

    • Dj_Taktix

      I hate to say it, but I thought Letang might already know he’s going to be traded based on his rather uncaring reaction to his goal…

      http://oi64.tinypic.com/51vym8.jpg

      • Jovi

        First MAF and now you want Tanger. You ppl are heartless!!!

        Though if this ever happens: I need someone to head to the arena store and get me a discounted jersey. I’ll pay for the shipping.

        • Dj_Taktix

          Do not want. But does that look like a guy who just scored a goal and is looking forward to a fruitful playoff season with his longtime teammates?

        • randy

          Game worn?

          • Jovi

            no, just plan old jersey….buuuut I won’t say ‘no’ to a game worn

    • randy

      Thanks ung.

  • UlfSammySon
  • el Wray

    Can’t believe MMX didn’t get a star. To come in 2 goals down, shut the door on a penalty shot with a minute left, and earn the W the hard way? Way better than whatever Rat Face did.

    • Dj_Taktix

      Yeah, plus Slumpy McRatface had a chance to put it away with a penalty shot at 59 minutes and blew it.

      Are dives an official stat now?

      • el Wray

        Had the world at his fingertips; got stoned. Sounds like my brother.

  • Jovi

    McDavid vs Kane? Is Towes hurt or is he no longer relevant?

    • PensPointsYourMom

      Was never relevant, except to Canadian homer fanboys.

  • randy
  • PensPointsYourMom

    Pens magic number is 128. Too soon?

    Seriously though Pens are back in the playoffs, for now. I’d expect CAR, PHI, or NYI to push them out during the pens bye week.

    Not sure if I think this is great or terrifying:

      Best PP in the league. So huge.

  • Dj_Taktix

    Also, 2 of 2 on the PK, 2 for 3 on the PP. Don’t look now, but the Pens Special Teams are lit AF…

      As of yesterday, the Pens PK was 12th in league, 3rd since Nov 15. And the PP is tops I think.

    Would have been do much better to head into the”bye” on a four game streak, but I’ll take it. Some rest will do them good. Time to turn it on.

      3 of the last 4 is good enough.

        Was just gonna say we’re 3-1 with a +5 goal diff. in 2018

    Jarry’s stats are gonna look like dogshit. But the pens outshot the Broons 17 to 6 in the 3rd. (1-0 in OT)

      PDO for this game about 97….unbelievable.

    Rags lost in regulation too.

    Tough spot for GMJR. If the pens limp into the bye week, there’s no backlash for making “big moves” if he makes significant trades now, its all on him.

    Great fookin game. Sid, Geno, and Phil came to play.

    Malkin post-game on the GWG with Kessel: “I pass him, he pass me back. I know he’s pass me back because he’s like huge player and like we understand each other pretty well.”

    Yeah, might wanna keep them on the same line 5v5.
