First person to send pic of a cat actually doing a pile of Penguin feces is a beast.
After the jump, Crosby and Ovechkin are both dicks.
The Steelers schedule came out. They're finishing the season on the road.
Their last home game is on December 23rd.
The Winter Classic is January 1st. Just sayin'.
The win was sweet. The score was great, too. But nothing was better than watching a near-psychotic Chris Neil skate by the Pens bench and the Penguins just laugh in his pathetic face.
You know Granato's blood is boiling.
The Pens have broken the Senators' will to live.
Bill Elliott basically shit himself on national TV.
And Daniel Alfredsson is just a baby.
But, really, the story is Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin defying ordinary.
Crosby's goals were sweet, but how sick was the pass he made to Kunitz for the sixth goal of the game.
Two guys in his mouth. Outsmarts them, then delivers it to the Koon.
Geno added another goal, as well.
4 goals in 4 games. We'll take that throughout the playoffs.
And then we get to mention Jordan Staal.
Recently nominated for the Selke as top defensive forward.
Now the scene moves from Ottawa to the Mellon for a Casket Match.
Personally, our lives would be complete if someone
went to the game on Thursday dressed as The Undertaker.
If we posted every pic and photoshop we got, the blog would look like a war zone.
We don't have favorites. We just put up whatev.
Every photoshop, pic, etc. we get is in our Picasa Web Albums.
And that, too, is a war zone. Just click Charlie's face above to check it out.
Penguins Lead Series 2-1

Know the Enemy:
This is our chance to put our foot down on the Senators throats.
A win tonight brings the series back to Pittsburgh for a casket match.
A loss ties everything back up.
Of course, everyone knows that.
The Senators aren't going to die easily.
They're not going to roll over and simply allow the Penguins to run them over.
They're going to fight.
They're going to hit and skate and scratch and claw for their playoff lives.
Going up 3-1 in a series doesn't mean you're definitely going to win it, but it makes it pretty difficult for the other team.
The Penguins know that.
The Senators know that.
It's gonna be a war.

Cheechoo may be in the lineup for Ottawa tonight.
Shean Donovan might be, too.
We want nothing to do with Shean Donovan.
Probably the best picture in the history of the blog.

After the jump, some more PS's and a Tuesday With Stoosh.
And an awesome find by reader GREG N. in regard to an advertisement on the boards.
We're deep into this series now.
We've played three games.
We've seen some big hits.
We've witnessed some controversial plays.
The hate is definitely growing.
Senators fans hate Matt Cooke and Brooks Orpik and Olympic gold medal winner Sidney Crosby.
Penguins fans hate Chris Neil and Andy Sutton and Ottawa fans who boo Olympic gold medal winner Sidney Crosby.
And we've got at least two more games to go.
After the jump, some updates on both the Penguins and Senators.
But first, the Rinkotology Blog has a look at the top ten players overall and in each conference.
The leaderboard and watchlist are coming very soon.
We're not condescending assholes by any stretch of the imagination.
But you just can't get too high or too low in the playoffs.
It's been flat-out entertaining listening to voices on sports-talk shows saying that the Pens will now be running away with this series, that this series ends on Thursday night, etc.
Four days ago, these people were vomiting all over themselves.
Now they're walking around like the Pens are world-beaters.
The energy from the home crowd hurt the Sens more than it helped them. The first two games of this series, they played a simple road game, maintained the "us against the world" mentality, and they almost escaped Pittsburgh with two wins.
That home-crowd energy got the best of them in Game Three, but the Senators are a professional-hockey team with a solid brain trust of coaching that goes beyond Cory Clouston. The play that turned this game on its head was the Senators letting Bill Guerin hang out on the other side of center-red. The goal made it 4-1, and the Sens started jobbing people afterward, knowing the game was over. It's a simple defensive lapse that will be replayed over and over in the film room for the players. Without the goal, the final minutes of this game would've taken on an entirely different intensity, with the Sens only being down by one goal.
Game Four is going to be a dogfight. Pens will be ready for it.
The way the Sens played in Games One and Two wasn't a fluke.
But they are still jokes.
Moreover, with Game Three, this playoff series has become a hate fest.
We hate the Senators. We hate the entire city of Ottawa. We hate the Ottawa media.
When Crosby comes out for the three stars, we wish he would throw a grenade into the stands.
Not like it would affect anyone, since they were sent to the gates early in the third.
One reason we are glad Andy Sutton wasn't suspended is because it is almost better keeping him in there so Geno and Bing can turn him into a street sign. Sutton was smoked for two goals by the Mega Powers.
On the other side, Sutton started the Butterfly Effect with his hit on Leopold.
With Leo out, Jay McKee stepped in and played a great game.
He laid his life on the line like nine times. Jay McKee is built for the playoffs.
Now the Pens have a pivotal game on Tuesday.
A win puts the Sens down 3-1.
With a casket match set for Game Five in the Mellon.
After the jump, a recap that has WAY too much shit in it.
Series Tied 1-1
Listen to the game at [WXDX]
Know the Enemy:
This game is going to be physical.
The hate has grown since game one. The intensity is way up.
The Senators are coming home after a one goal loss in game two.
They're going to be energized in front of their home crowd.
The Penguins are "out for justice" after seeing Jordan Leopold motionless on the ice.
They're riding high following their win and hoping for more of the same.
It's definitely going to be a hard-hitting, physical hockey game.
We should know.
