It's 30 points to the playoffs, we got Pascal Dupuis playing on the first line, half a pack of jokes, it's cold as balls, and we're in Philly.

Yeah, it's a playoff race. Every game is magnified. We'll look back at this game and say, oh, man, those 2 points were huge, don't touch me there, mom. But we may look back at this game in about 40 days and say, man, we're glad Montreal didn't get a point out of this.
Montreal is in shambles. When this recap went to pixel, the "huge" story hadn't broken yet. But the Habs are in freefall regardless.
We're overly obsessed with this 90-95 points projection to get into the playoffs.
Hopefully, we'll have a magic number this year. You know what that means.
Huge win for the Pens.
Recap is on its way, you certain idiots.
But right now there are some shocking reports coming out of Montreal.
This is not a joke.
Mirtle is on it right now.
Radio reports from Quebec say the police are waiting for the Habs to land.
The quotes from various people are what is making this story:
Jacques Demers: "Honestly, there are things I know, and what looks like what's going to come out [in the papers] tomorrow, I swear to you, I thought about Mr. Beliveau tonight ... and I just hope I'm dreaming. I'm a proud Canadien, the Canadiens are my life, and I hope I'm dreaming but I don't think I am."
Bob Hartley: "If everything we've been told is true, I've never seen that in my life. If it's true, I'm going back to Atlanta [joking]"
Michel Bergeron: "The Canadiens are my roots, and my idols, like you guys...and it looks like the foundation is going to be shaken. Not just for the Quebecois but for anyone who wears the Canadiens sweater around the country. To me, what's happened, it's unacceptable".
Oh boy. More on this as it unfolds.
Or just go find the links yourself.
Mirtle is now saying this maybe nothing.

It doesn't get much bigger than this game.
That is our analysis.
If you need any more info, you like poop.
The GM of Pensblog, Marty the Chicken, showed all the brass of a morning rooster and pulled off a trade to maybe spark something.
From a Pens fan perspective, last night was nothing.
But if you just love the game, last night had two of the better highlights.
A.O. makes a move so sick, Gary Bettman had to release a patch to eliminate it.
This second highlight hurts, because we could imagine how pumped we'd be if this happened for the Pens.
Hossa drops the gloves. PD
To be fair to the guy from Nashville, he probably didn't expect it. You know, being that Hossa usually stabs people in the back.
After the jump, looks like a journalist in Pittsburgh is trying to become the new Bob Smizik.
Pretty easy to understand this photoshop expo.
HCMT lost his job, and now we have to find him a new one.
He could work at the DQ:
"The ice cream is too soff."
Wall Street could use some toughness:
"The stock is too soff, pff"
"Pfff....Your case is too soff."
You get the point.

Put "THERRIEN" in your e-mail somewhere.
There is nothing better in life than watching someone get what they deserve.
That is why we have an extra hop in our step this morning.
Yes, that's right. Look who's in some trouble.
Our old friend from the Hill.
State Rep. Jake Wheatley.
Seems like Mr. Wheatley got caught with his hand in the cookie jar.
The story comes from Andy Sheehan of KDKA.
Looks like Big Poppa Joke used his staff for something he wasn't supposed to.
Two things about this:
1. Why does Jake Wheatley have a staff?
2. And when you see Andy Sheehan lurking around, you know you're screwed.
What a pic.
If you're new here, or forgot, let's revisit the Wheatley saga.
Big ups to Ivand87 on [LGP] for poing this out.
How does no one send this to us?
Come on people.
This season just keeps getting stranger.
Apparently Alyonka Larinov, daughter of Igor Larinov, is working for the Pens TV now.
Why is that important?
Because she is pretty unreal.
Oh, and there is this whole music video thing:
We are mad at the Penguins. First they didn't send us a press release like everyone else about Therrien getting fired. Secondly...eh whatever.. just check her [myspace] out, and the video below.
IHCDB first presser is on the video after Alyonka talks on Penguin TV..
