Regular season... where did you go?
Tonight is the last home game of the regular season. It's "Shirts Off Our Backs" night. It's team awards night. It's a Mathieu Garon start.
Both Garon and Philippe Boucher will likely play tonight.
Hal Gill looks to be the odd man out on defense.
It also looks like Max Talbot will be scratched.
The Islanders lost 9-0 to Carolina on Tuesday.
They managed to get 12 shots on net.
The Hurricanes had 57.
The Thrashers aren't good for much else.
But this is good.
Last home gameday of the regular season coming up later today with Rick City.
In the meantime, Alonyka is becoming one of OUR favorite person of all time.
Scuderi was a +3 during dinner.
Having to watch trailers for Vin Diesel's 14th movie about cars
is taking away from the joy of the Pens clinching a playoff berth.

Last night the Pittsburgh Penguins qualified for the Stanley Cup playoffs.
It feels a little bit sweeter knowing that half the world didn't think we'd make it, doesn't it?
Right now we don't know who the Pens will be playing. In fact, we might not know until Sunday.
Whoever it is, chances are we'll hate them. If it's a team like the Flyers or the Capitals the hate is already there.
A playoff series against either of those teams will just fuel the fire.
Hatred for the Devils has cooled recently. Don't worry, it'll come back if it needs to.
The first time Brodeur makes a ridiculous save on Crosby or Malkin will cause us to remember.
The Carolina Hurricanes?
Remember Cam Ward's first career start?
He stopped both Crosby and Lemieux in a shootout.
We can find a way to hate them too.
Standing in between a team and the Cup definitely leads to hatred.
The Penguins can fool themselves to whatever extent they please that they earned two points that were absolutely indispensable last night, but the way they've played the Islanders over the past 125 minutes of ice time plus a shootout has left little doubt that they've kissed this season good-bye.

It is easy to call Collier a joke for writing that, but lets face it who didn't feel like that? He was just dumb enough to write it on the Internet.
The season that looked to be left for dead on Long Island has come full circle.
The Penguins crawled through 32 points in about six weeks, and came from a place we couldn't even possibility imagine.
The 2008-09 Pittsburgh Penguins.
The team that crawled through a river of shit, and came out in the NHL playoffs on the other side.
The stage is yours Mr. Manilow.

Tonight the Pens roll into Pittsburgh South with one goal in mind: Clinch a playoff spot.
If the Pens win tonight they can finish no worse than seventh in the East.
We meant to do this yesterday.
Blogging an 82 game schedule will take you to highs and lows you'd never imagine.
But 162 games? Unreal.
And that is why we must pay tribute to our good friend and fellow bloguin member:
[WHYGAVS] or in long form Where Have You Gone Andy VanSlyke?
How anyone could write about the last 17 years of Pirates baseball is amazing.
Good luck to all the Pirates bloggers out there.
And how about those Bucs? Big time win today against the Jokeinals.
Shades of 1997? If there is one season of non hockey, in pro sports we wish we could go back in time and blog, it is that season

Today is judgement day in the NHL.
Everyone in the playoff picture is basically playing.
Montreal lost to Ottawa last night. Jokes. They play the Rangers tonight.
More in gameday later.
Real quick though.
This lady must be related to Mike Richards.
