How the hell are there only 12 games left in the season?
Guess there is a two years after the Stanley Cup curse as well, because the Senators are complete trash.
But, there is little doubt that they will play there balls off today.
The Pens play two games in like eight minutes this weekend, so lets face it, they have to get a split.
Our email looks like downtown Bagdad, so we are going to try and catch up, but at this point who even knows.
Everyone is probably drunk today anyway, so whatev.
Sykora is playing or at least we think.
Looks like MAF gets the start today, and Garon tomorrow.
Pens are also wearing their Blue uniforms.
The biggest question in todays game is have the Nacho's at the Mellon Arena changed?
We heard rumors.
This stunned pic came from James R. after the Blue Jackets game.
One game and we got two top ten stunned pics of all time.
After the jump some solid youtubes.
"That save right there might have saved the Penguins' playoff life."
-- Bob Errey, paraphrased.
Quotes don't get more big-time than that.
MAF made a big stop with about 12 seconds left to preserve at least a point.
But should the Pens have even been in that position?
Hell yeah, they should have.
Making up a 3-goal deficit with 15 minutes to work with is no joke.
If the Pens were on a "win one, lose one" streak,
we would be pissed that the Pens "can't play 60 minutes."
If ANY sportswriter comes out and grumbles about the Pens not playing 60 minutes,
they shouldn't have a job.
Let's cut them some slack. They've won a few games in a row here.
And that third-period comeback is the calling card of a red-hot hockey team.

The Pens fed off the large contingent of fans in attendance during the third-period comeback, take it to the bank. From the people who traveled to the game to the people who got to make it to their only game of the season because they live out there -- sick.
Steigy mentioned it during the broadcast and it so true:
Games like this show what hockey is about.
Home sweet Mellon for eight straight games.
Bring the noise.
Like we have a scouting report on the Jackets.
-- COFFEYTALK --
At the March 2007 trade deadline, Penguins fans didn't know what to do.
We forgot what it was like to actually trade for talent rather than dumping salary.
In retrospect, it was a quiet time for Ray Shero, as we have seen him do some pretty good wheeling and dealing since then.
But he acquired Gary Roberts at the trade deadline.
And our lives were never the same.
After a roller-coaster career, Roberts deserved every accolade that came his way.
Fortunately, readers of the blog stepped up. Big-time.
If we took the time to find all the great photoshops, YouTubes, and every time the media mentioned the Roberts phenomenon, this post wouldn't get done.
Off the top of our head, we recall wristbands, WWGRD on the cover of some Pittsburgh magazine, YouTube songs, Chuck Norris jokes sweeping the radio waves, TSN talk-show hosts sporting the wristband, Steiggy mentioning the craze, iPhone wallpapers, desktop wallpapers, chants of GARY-GARY-GARY, game one against the Sens, someone putting WWGRD on street signs in Mt. Lebanon, that printing company on Banksville Road, some jobber selling knockoff shirts in the Strip District.
And we do all that without mentioning the Gary Roberts For President signs
that reached as far as a boy in blue holding one in front of some huge plane in South America.
We're definitely forgetting other stuff.
After the jump, one YouTube that shows what Roberts brought to the team.
And some other YouTubes.
Did you ever have to poop really bad?
Like so bad it felt like your stomach was flipping over.
Maybe it was on a bus.
Wherever it was, it was far away from a bathroom.
So you have to keep sucking it in and doing all you can not to shit yourself.
After the third or fourth time of going through this and battling off those the goosebumps of death, you decide to just let it go. Just let the poop fly.
The bathroom is too far away, and you'd rather be covered in your own feces in front of people then have fight it off one more minute.
That was Tomas Vokun tonight. He held back his poop for 60-plus minutes.
But in the shootout he decided to just let the kids rip.
The three forwards the franchise is built around?
They all scored.
If you know the actual stat, you're a joke.
But the Pens' record with Malkin's parents in attendance has to be unreal.
The Pens can finally earn the points they need to get in.
If they win out, they're in. Easy.
Rangers are the 9th seed. They have 76 points to the Pens' 78.
Rangers have 15 games left. 30 points. 106.
Pens have 14 games left. 28 points. 106.
Pens hold the tie-breaker with more wins.
What a bunch of pussies.
When the sun's shining through your window when the puck drops,
you know the playoffs are approaching.
The only question is whether the Pens will be in it.
Are the Pens poised for a letdown tonight?
THE DRIVE on ESPN RADIO 1250 brought up the point that players returning from a long road trip have a lot on their minds, whether it's paying bills, doing laundry, going shopping, going through two-weeks worth of mail, etc.
It is likely a factor in a team in the Pens situation losing a jobber game.
We don't have any time to go through e-mails for this.
That's what CRAP is for.
We'll have iPhone wallpapers for the masses in the recap. Go Pens.Add a comment
Everyone keeps e-mailing us about this A.O. commercial.
If we wanted to hear a retard singing, we'd buy a Clarks CD.
There is a lot going on, but nothing of it really worth taking the time to talk about it.
Our general feeling can compared to this pic:
Yeah, we got some e-mails from Caps fans.
Really nothing worth mentioning.
Here was the most common exchange:
CapsFan69: You guys acted like you won the cup LOL!!1
Charlie: Yeah, because we actually know how to act when that happens.
We were gonna move on to Florida already.
But the selfishness of some Caps fans came to light.
