If we had lives, the screenshot above
would have been an adequate recap of the game.
Anytime your top line gets all three stars and a combined 10 points in a game,
safe to say it was a pretty good night.
Kunitz gets off his schnide.
Montreal was either flat, tired, or their balls hurt.
Whatever the case, the Pens carried out Disco's business with military precision.
The best part about Sidney Crosby getting a hat trick
is hearing people say, "Where was Malkin?" And vice versa.
Malkin says lick it.
The Pens finished their recent homestand
with 8 out of a possible 10 points.
And the end of the homestand overlaps with another section of the schedule:
5 games in 9 days, including the best part of the year, the West Coast trip.
From Montreal's perspective, what's worse right now?
-The Habs fan that probably overpaid to watch this game in person?
-Poor Hal Gill having to watch his boys pick his team apart?
-Or the lifeless, impotent Carey Price?
Unless you have some disease, life is great right now.
Pens are sick, and an all-Pens weekend is on the horizon.

The USS Hal Gill returns to the Igloo tonight.
Gill was one of the reasons the Pittsburgh Penguins held the Stanley Cup over their heads last season.
He was also the inspiration for a lot of great Photoshops and signage.
Tonight, when he steps onto the ice, stand up and show him the respect he deserves.
The man should hear applause from the Igloo faithful one more time.
But, once the puck drops, he's an enemy.
To Habs fans, signing Gill was a huge deal.
Four riots break out every time he touches the puck.
Seriously, look up "Montreal Riot" on YouTube.
There's about 17 weeks worth of footage from numerous different occasions over the years.
The other big news tonight is that Tyler Kennedy will sit out with an undisclosed injury.
Chris Bourque will dress in his place.
Pascal Dupuis, who had the flu, will play.
The Pens lines and more after the jump.
PensBurgh did all Pens fan a great honor
by making an all-decade Pens team.
No clue how Morozov makes the cut.
Although you pretty much have to put him there.
Unless you have a hard-on for Brian Holzinger.
There's some crap after the jump.
Just start watching it at the 2:00 mark.
These highlights don't do the emotions justice.

Reader ALI brings us this one.
"Game 3 of the caps series this past playoff. We all know how dire the situation was.
Top top it off, I had tailgated in a monsoon and was absolutely drenched, and my rally towel blew onto and street and got run over my a fucking car in the process.
Things weren't looking good."
Yes, I went trick or treating in the suburbs of Pittsburgh dressed like this,
collecting money for UNICEF in a classic jar of Jaromir Jagr peanut butter.

This is all we have to say to that:
A few Charlie-o-lanterns™ are creeping into the inbox.
A slideshow of Halloween stuff after the jump.
Also after the jump, an old friend feels the wrath of Aunt Karma's period.

GeoCities - home to thousands of awesomely retro animated gifs and never updated personal web pages - is officially closed as of today.
As a way of saying goodbye, we suggest you check out our old post on GeoCities, Tripod and Angelfire pages.
Some of those pages may even still work.
And, the next time the Pens score, you might want to play this.
Today is our .
There's something amazing about the old GeoCities sites that will die today.
For anyone who was on the Internet in the mid-to-late 90s, GeoCities pages probably took up a large percentage of your life.
The number of old school wrestling sites, hockey fan pages and band tribute sites online decreased significantly today.
After the jump, a big Rob Scuderi hit, the Pens dress up for Halloween and more Geocities goodness.
Every season, the Philadelphia Flyers start showing up in headlines so frequently that it's impossible to ignore them anymore. Not even 10 games into the season, their players have already had to face two instances where a possible suspension or fine was going to be handed out, one of which resulted from Scott Hartnell actually biting Kris Letang.
And now Mike Richards has decided to go on a personal crusade
against the media in Philadelphia -- because he is a leader.
