No blog post about Steve losing the battle to male pattern baldness. wooo
:: Speaking of the screen, MATT S. e-mailed us
and reminded us that NBC wants to be seen as "going green."
Does that include making 3,000 people run their televisions as opposed to one screen?
Call a doctor.
We hurt our arm reaching.
If someone told you the Pens would be up 2-0 to start the third, you would have taken it.
Right off the bat, Bing hits the pipe at the start of the third. Shit.
The clock wasn't moving.
Eaton goes to the box.
We were all penalty killers.
There was a close call, but only because the goal judge in Philly is a homer.
Did anyone see Matt Carle dive on MAF?
Yeah, that's legal.
After the kill, the world starts to fall apart.
Carcillo tries some unreal dive.
Did he pretend he hurt his ankle?
Same shift, the Pens were going to the box again anyway.
Pens kill it. Spectacular save by MAF.
Around the end of the penalty, the hack organist tries to spark the CROSBY SUCKS chant.
But it was silent.
Nobody cared anymore.
What you feared all game finally came to realization.
Pens just couldn't get it out. 2-1.
Great goal celebration by Carcillo.
If you'd like to see it again, give a cookie to someone with down syndrome.
Just the facts.
The arena gets rejuvenated.
The rest of the game was gonna be open as shit.
If the Pens wouldn't get into the flow of it instead of playing survivor, it was gonna be bad.
Father Time registered a Twitter account down the homestretch.
Fedotenko was everywhere this game.
Important shift by TK-Staal-Cooke settles things down.
With five minutes to go, the only adjective to describe things would be "suffocating."
The Chinese could have parked a destroyer in the middle of the Allegheny River
and no one was moving from their TV.
The Pens defense was only rolling five because Letang got slashed.
The Flyers were taking chances, and the Pens sprung Kunitz on a breakaway.
If you didn't stand up, why are you here?
Biron actually makes a save. Hack.
After what felt like hours, Biron was headed to the bench.
Loose puck. Pens come out with it.
Talbot from way downtown.
Did Bing say something to the crowd?
[thanks Kellie D] for the heads up.
We took this opportunity to send out an e-mail to our Flyer friends:
John Steven's on Bing's goal:
"Marty's got to be allowed to make a save," Stevens said. "He knocked Marty into the net. If he gets pushed into the net, it shouldn't be a goal."
"It's a dangerous play when you're kicking the puck around the crease for the goalie. It's a dangerous play when you're sliding in both feet first toward the goalie," Biron said. "I don't really like that. It's not the first time where he's done that and drives the net."
— Marty Biron
Did they watch the same game we did? Dangerous? Stunning.
Flyers 0 for 8 on the powerplay
0 for 8.
0 for 8.
0 for 8.
RJ Umberger stunned, again:
And lastly, the Blues are the first team to be eliminated from the playoffs:
We have to set some things straight.
Our Harry Kalas joke was eating at our conscience.
It is with clear heart and mind that we dedicate this victory to one Harry Kalas.
