Links that are still looking for Rick Nash to show up.
What a job by every Pens fan in Columbus on Saturday night. Pens fans may have set back Columbus hockey at least 4 years. But that probably happened when they named Rick Nash their captain. Nash had a chance to shut Pittsburgh fans up with a big-time performance, but instead he came out, boarded Brooks Orpik, then stood in the corner and cried all night.
Some final thoughts on our Columbus trip
Columbus needs a playoff run. A run into late May would change the town.
Nationwide owns the entire city of Columbus. If Nationwide ever collapses, so will Columbus.
Nationwide Arena is legit, too. Solid place to watch a game.
The in-game entertainment makes Ryan Mill look great. They dropped burritos from the rafters.
They had a live band. They were as bad as you could imagine.
A cannon goes off after every goal. So weird.
Finally, thanks to everyone representing with Charlie signs and shit. It was hilarious walking out of there seeing Charlie signs littered on the ground. If you took a pic with us, e-mail it in.
Here are some late-arriving stunned pics:
great pic from Mike D.
The legendary James R. with another great shot.
This should sum up the rest:
The "Mason" chant was incredible.
Some HBO stuff. [ The Star ]
Good read from Rossi on Malkin and injuries. [ Trib ]
Keeping things in perspective. [ Get To Our Game ]
Tony Granato probably hates you. [ PG ]
This artist is clearly expecting unlimited Caps fans. But it would make sense since the Caps were given the most tickets in the history of a winter classic for an away team.
Speaking of the caps. AO had a little trip this weekend too:
Crosby scores 4 goals on this play.
Wiki read of the day (tomorrow): Pearl Harbor.
