Looking back


We will never get tired of looking at this picture

Short post today to remind you to pick up a copy of the Post-Gazette or head over to their website. They will be featuring a look back at the Pens Stanley Cup season. The paper itself will have a special section just for this, which will be a good collector's item. Here is a link to all the of the coverage over at the Post-Gazette, just scroll down the page to see all that's included. Enjoy the look back, we know we will.

It's been a week


It's been a week since the Pens won the Cup. Are you tired of hearing that yet? Didn't think so. We know we already posted the celebratory video but we'd be remiss if we didn't post it now. We know you can watch it over and over again anyway.

NHL Awards



No surprises here, Ovie took the Hart and Lester B. Pearson awards. Geno got the best of them all though in the Stanley Cup so we don't think he's too bummed. He was presented last night with the Art Ross trophy for leading the league in scoring. His thank yous (and Ovie's amazing humor):




What's up with Ovie's pants?!

If you didn't watch the awards or couldn't, don't feel bad. We sat through the whole thing and well...not too exciting. Especially the so-called musical performances. The best parts of the night were by far Geno's fabulous English and an Ovie advertisement for NHL 2K10. We tried to find the latter on YouTube but no one else thought it was as funny as we did for some reason. Basically he says something along the lines of "NHL 2K10 on the Wii is a party, that's why I'm on the cover." Only in broken English. We laughed for a good couple minutes on that one. Probably because of the lack of entertainment of the awards, but we still laughed. You take what you can get.

Big Ben even made an appearance in the form of a pre-taped video. Kinda sucked:




Max Talbot and Dan Bylsma joined Geno at the awards, including bringing in the Stanley Cup. Where was Sidney Crosby?


Geno and who we're assuming is his woman:

Post-Gazette coverage on the awards, including a few quotes from Geno on the awards and his summer plans.

Dan Bylsma got a congratulatory phone call from President Barack Obama. Sounds pretty awesome to answer the phone and hear "please hold for the President."

Sidney Crosby Gatorade Ad



We just got our Sports Illustrated (yes, the Crosby cover) and had to share the Gatorade ad inside. If you're anything like us you save ads like this even if you don't save the magazine. Part of the reason we felt it so significant to share is because Sidney Crosby wasn't even on the US Gatorade website a couple years ago. You would go to gatorade.com and be greeted by plenty of other athletes, but not Sidney Crosby. That is unless you went to gatorade.ca. Crosby was finally added to the US site some time ago, but we feel he should have been there all along.

YouTube of the day, Sidney Crosby's Gatorade commercial:

Geno for MVP


(AP)

Tonight Geno could walk away with a lot more hardware for his collection. The NHL Awards are in Las Vegas where Geno is up for the Hart and Lester B. Pearson awards. We personally think it would be a shame to let anyone else win these awards but we're preparing for an Ovechkin love fest. If so, at least life should feel much better for Geno since he won the best trophy of them all in the Stanley Cup and only added to it by also winning the Conn Smythe. We think he'd take those any day. He also won the Art Ross trophy as the points leader in the regular season.

Sidney Crosby is up for the Mark Messier Leadership Award and also the Fan Fav Award which was voted on by fans. The show will be on Versus at 7:30 p.m.

Malkin could add to trophy collection Be sure to check out the photo of Geno carrying the Conn Smythe in Mellon Arena and look at Paul Steigerwald off to the side taking his picture. That outfit is horrible.

The Pens haven't wasted much time in signing players to new deals. Yesterday the Pens signed Alex Goligoski to a three-year deal worth $5.5 million. The annual salary-cap hit is at just over $1.8 million. We think this is great, we like Gogo a lot and think he'll be great for the Pens.


As for the Sports Illustrated cover we showed yesterday, if you are out of the regional area, you can purchase cover prints for $19.95 with the option of having them framed for around $100. As far as we know there is no option to buy single issues of SI but we'll try to find that out for sure. Although the magazine itself is the same, so if you get SI but not the regional cover, you can still read the Cup story.

As for a Cup package that includes the commemorative magazine covering the entire season, there isn't one as of now, although there is a Lakers one. Who would have thought? We hope there will at least be the commemorative magazine since we have these for the last two Super Bowls tucked away with all the papers and other collectables.

The Kid and The Cup



If you're really lucky you'll see the above in your mailbox or on newsstands in your area. According to Sportsbeat this cover is regional, meaning if you live in the Pittsburgh regional area (we have no idea where regional actually is outside of Pittsburgh iteself) you will get this cover, if not, well...you get Kobe and the Lakers. Yes, once again, some other sport rules over hockey. This cover is a special collector's edition so get yours while you can. The main article, "The Kid and The Cup" will of course be in all issues regardless of the cover.

We really like the cover and think it looks great. Seeing it without all the other story lines surrounding it, it's just nice. We sincerely hope we're considered in the regional market. If we get Kobe and the Lakers we'll probably throw a temper tantrum like a five-year-old. If we get Sid we'll probably scream like pre-teen girls at a Jonas Brothers concert. We'll be sure to let you know which one happens.

As for your video of the day, it's of the Pens taking the Cup to PNC Park on Sunday. It's nice to see a Champion of some sort at PNC. You don't want to get us started on the Pirates, although Nyjer Morgan is by far the coolest Pirate of the bunch for a lot of reasons. After all, his first love was hockey and his dream was to win the Stanley Cup.



Do you have withdrawals yet?

City of Champions


(AP)
Amazing.

We've been completely MIA since the Pens won the Cup. No opinions, no links. We decided to let you soak it all in, there's a lot to soak in you know, and sneak in fashionably late. Okay, so that wasn't the plan. But let's face it, we could have never done this justice. We've been tearing up for days at articles, pictures, videos, highlights, and whatever else you can find that includes the Pens and the Cup. You've heard this before and you'll hear it again, we were huge Steelers fans long before we got into the Pens. We'd seen two Super Bowls in our lifetime (technically two Cups but we were way too young to even know what that was at the time) and they were amazing, but there just wasn't anything like the Stanley Cup. We don't know if it's the players, the amount of work it takes to win the Cup, the history of the Cup itself...we don't know, but there's just something special about it. For every up and down, we'd do it all over again because it was all worth it.

If we could, we'd post every picture taken in the days following the Pens' win because we can't get enough of them. We'd post every video we could find because we don't think we'll ever get tired of seeing the Pens celebrate and hoist the Cup. We know you're all like that too. We wish we could give this whole thing the justice it deserves, but we know we never could. We promise we're not just skipping out. Life gets in the way sometimes and we regret not doing more than we did. But for a while, we'll still tear up at the sight of Sidney Crosby and the Cup he so deserved. We know there's tons more out there just like us. Thank you for hanging in there, we'll still be here. Maybe to make up for our losses, we'll try to find some videos each day so you can relive this amazing season over and over again until training camp and we can do it all over again. We can't wait.

Stanley Cup Champs!!!

That picture is perfect. Stanley Cup Champions. GO PENS!!!

Game 7


So this is it. One game for the Stanley Cup. It all comes down to this. Pretty much everyone is writing the Pens off, after all, look at history. You know it all already, we don't need to repeat it. All of it is just too much for the Pens to handle. It's impossible. Why even play the game? We think not. For those of us who have watched the Pens the entire season, we know what this team is capable of: anything. The Pens have played their best with their backs against the wall and against all odds. Tonight is just that. Like anyone wants to watch the Wings beat the Pens again. This time it's the Pens turn to turn the tables on them. Win the Cup on their ice. Let them see what that feels like.

It's time for them to embrace the underdog role and run with it. The Wings have all the pressure of being considered the better team, being on home ice, blah blah blah. The Pens just get to come in and possibly make history. And revenge on the Wings. The Steelers have always thrived with the underdog role and so can the Pens. It's time to have that chip on their shoulder Hines Ward style.

If the Pens play their game, they can definitely bring the Cup back to Pittsburgh. Start aggressive and don't let up. Take it to the Wings and Osgood. Get the first goal and things are going great. Maybe Sidney Crosby will get his record seventh first goal of the playoffs. We expect Sidney Crosby to be a man possessed tonight. He's played well, but he hasn't been the force he was the rest of the playoffs. That fire will be in his eyes, he'll pass it on to the rest of the team. He's going to do whatever he possibly can to get the Pens the Cup. He's not going to let the Pens go down without a damn good fight.

Hold on to your hats because this promises to be quite the game. Nothing held back. This is the last time the team will ask and the last time we'll ask you...

One more game


(Getty)


Pens win 2-1 to force a game 7 back in Detroit for the Stanley Cup. One more game. Friday can't come soon enough.

Wow, what a game. We're sure we weren't the only ones with our hearts pounding, sitting on the edge of our seats. This game was obviously huge for both teams, but especially the Pens. Marc-Andre Fleury needed to play a spectacular game and he did. His defense also helped him out by blocking a lot of shots and Rob Scuderi even decided to play goalie with just seconds on the clock with Detroit knocking on the door. And no, he didn't use his hand to cover the puck.

Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin were held scoreless, which means the Pens needed secondary scoring. And they got it. The third line last night was great, even scoring both of the Pens' goals. Jordan Staal scored first early on in the second period, while Tyler Kennedy scored the game-winner a little over five minutes into the third period. Kennedy also had an assist on the Staal goal for a great night.

One more game. A winner takes all game 7 for the Stanley Cup. Wow. Who would have thought after all the Pens went through? It's time to raise the Cup on their ice this time. If they play anything like they did last night, dominate most of the time, they have a great chance of doing just that.




- Fleury was the first star of the game and deservedly so. What a game after such a disappointment in game 5. We didn't think that was all his fault at all, but getting five goals scored against you isn't exactly a good time. That save with less than two minutes left in the period on Cleary on a breakaway was huge. Who knows what would have happened had this game been tied.

- The Pens came out with the win and that's all that matters but what frustration when it comes to all the chances! After the first period we were in disbelief that none of those chances went in. They were dominating all the way around but had nothing to show for it at the end of one. Obviously it didn't get them down because sooner rather than later they got that first goal. They're going to need to play just like that in Detroit if they want to win the Stanley Cup on Friday night.

- The third line was spectacular. They were doing everything last night. Tyler Kennedy and Jordan Staal more than deserved what they got. Staal was great both offensively and defensively and TK was working hard. A third line like that is exactly what the Pens need, especially when you're top two aren't able to cash-in.

- Rob Scuderi is absolutely insane. What a beast. He was blocking shots, playing goalie, and just playing an all around awesome defensive game. He was a plus 2 with four blocked shots and a couple of saves in the crease. He cleared at least two pucks from the crease earlier in the game off of rebounds and then his three or four saves in the last seconds of the game were just insane. He was obviously giving 110% out there and that makes us feel good going into game 7.

- We have to say it. The announcers, especially Pierre McGuire, are horrible. It was a Detroit love fest all night, especially Chris Osgood. OMG, he's so amazing! Yeah, okay. But the worst of the night in our opinion was the talk of Rob Scuderi covering the puck with his hand in the final seconds. OMG because we haven't seen that before in this series! WTF?! Give Zetterberg a pass and criticize Scuds up and down for it. And the best part was that he didn't even touch it with his hand! Even after they showed it from above and it was obvious he never touched it, they were still like "oh, I don't know!" Are you blind? Ridiculous. NBC definitely sucks.

- The crowd seemed nice and loud last night all game. Exactly what the Pens needed. The Fleury chant before the game was extra awesome in our opinion. We're sure Fleury felt a little taller hearing that. Nice to see the entire city of Pittsburgh isn't on the Fleury bashing bandwagon.

- We also have to give credit to Brooks Orpik for a nice game with six blocked shots and obviously a ton of hits. Petr Sykora also deserves mention for getting in there and blocking a shot early. He might not have played much or had a huge impact on the game, but it's nice to see he's willing to do whatever he can for the team.

Friday really can't get here soon enough.

Game 6

We are so late with this post but they lost last time we missed a game day post so we're going to err on the side of caution and give in to our superstitions. After all, we have our lucky shirt on.

This is it. Lose and it's over. We have to win tonight to force a winner take all game 7. The Pens can do it. They have to protect their home ice and not let the Wings raise the Cup on their ice for the second year in a row.

Let's go boys. This is it.

Pens lose Game 5


That title might be a little misleading. Not only did they lose game 5, they were crushed 5-0. What a disaster. We never want to see a game like that again. The penalties were horrendous. So was the defense. Obviously the offense wasn't much better. But as far as we're concerned it's over and the Pens need to win game 6 at home to force a winner take all game 7 back in Detroit.

The Pens will come out strong in game 6 and we truly believe there will be a game 7. Every single person on the ice last night needs to play better. That was a team loss and game 6 will be a team win. If they can't muster up enough to come out strong and play 60 minutes in game 6, they don't deserve the Cup and they can watch the Wings hoist it on their ice for the second year in a row. Do you really think they're going to let that happen again? No.

There's no point in even breaking down this game. We all know what happened. There's nothing else to say. It's time to win game 6. Too bad it's so long until Tuesday. Hang in there and believe.

Pens win game 4, tie series 2-2


(Getty)

Jordan's face says it all. The Pens beat the Red Wings 4-2 in game 4 to tie the series up at 2-2. The Pens played a good game last night and wore the Red Wings down, coming back from another 2-1 deficit at home. The Pens saw another great game from Marc-Andre Fleury, Sidney Crosby, and Evgeni Malkin, but also from a couple recently quiet players (at least on the score sheet) in Jordan Staal and Tyler Kennedy.

The Pens have all the momentum going into game 5 back in Detroit and need to use that to get a win and take a 3-2 lead over the Wings before heading back home for game 6. And this team can do it.

There's a lot we liked about this game. We'll try to get it all out. Better late than never.

- Sidney Crosby really broke out in this game. He's been playing well all series, but definitely not like he has dominated the rest of the playoffs. He finally got on the scoreboard with a goal from a nice two on one with none other than the other head on the two headed monster, Geno himself. Geno did two good things on this play. One, he was playing good defense and had a takeaway. Two, what a pass. A defender sprawled out on the ice to try to stop that pass and did succeed at first, but the puck came back to Geno who was ready for it and slid that puck to Crosby to put past an out of place Osgood. Awesome.


- We don't think Crosby was expecting what happened in the above picture. Kris Letang just came over and tackled him to the ice. We've seen the replay over and over and Crosby just looks stunned. What made the whole thing priceless was Geno coming over and standing over Crosby yelling. What a sight.

- Not long after that, Crosby was involved in another goal with Chris Kunitz and Tyler Kennedy. We've been thinking all series that TK deserved to cash in because he has been working hard. He's just tons of energy, working hard along the boards and not afraid to take on anyone. Where he gets all that energy we have no idea. But in game 4, it really paid off. Kennedy got a turnover near center ice that he dished to Kunitz who then passed it to Crosby, who then passed it to Kennedy who was standing alone next to the net for a nice goal. How beautiful was that?! That was just insane. Osgood was the one stunned this time.

- Someone else on TK's line would get on the score sheet as well. Jordan Staal has played well as of late both defensively and with his line mates grinding away and keeping the puck in the offensive zone, but he hadn't scored. The Wings had two power plays back to back and Jordan Staal had a chance for a breakaway. With a smaller defender on him, he was able to keep him at bay and get a shot off and beat Osgood. What a play. That turned the entire game around. Not only was it short handed but it tied the game and set the Penguins off on a three goal scoring streak in less than six minutes. What a time for him to step up.

- Speaking of Jordan, are we the only ones who feel his confidence isn't always up there in terms of his play offensively? His defense is sound and he seems comfortable with that, as well as grinding it out along the boards, but when it comes to taking a shot it seems like he has no idea what to do with it. After his shortie it seemed like he was more confident. He took at least a couple more shots and looked like he knew what to do with the puck then. He has the talent, he just needs to use it. As well as believe in himself.

- Marc-Andre Fleury played great, rightfully earning him the number one star. He looks like he's getting into form and if  he can take one in Detroit in game 5...the sky's the limit. And maybe then the media and fans will let up on him. We never thought he deserved the criticism to begin with.

- Detroit looks tired. The Pens have really taken it to them overall, especially physically. The Pens also made the Wings frustrated, something that's just not supposed to happen to the Wings. These Wings aren't the big, bad force they were last year. Don't get us wrong, they are good and this won't be easy for the Pens, but they can and have worn them down. If you look at the Wings goals, they aren't too impressive. A couple soft ones, a couple bad bounces, not much of any real quality. The Pens can take this if they don't let up.

Game 4




First off, sorry for the lack of posts. Our health isn't exactly spectacular lately. But how about that SI cover? We love SI but that just sucks. This series isn't over. Maybe the SI cover jinx will help out the Pens. We're just glad we didn't get that cover today, although the article is still in there. Eh.

Tonight is a critical game 4 and a chance for the Pens to tie this series up going back to Detroit and making this series a best of three. They can also make this not about last year anymore. All anyone wants to talk about is how the Pens are in the same situation as last year despite the glaring differences. They win game 4 tonight and this is a whole new series. They need to come out tonight like this is game 7 and take this. Being down 3-1 is a whole different world than being tied 2-2. It's crazy to think the difference between the two. Tie this up and you have the momentum going into Detroit, lose and you're down 3-1 and basically all but counted out.

We know that it's always said that there can't possibly be any more motivation in the Stanley Cup Final that winning the cup. Okay. But it's time to play with that Hines Ward mentality. Find something and have that chip on your shoulder. No one believes in you, you're the underdog, whatever. He's always found something to be mad about, something that drives him, and it's worked pretty well we think. After all, he owns many Steelers records now. One other thing they can take from Hines Ward, hit them before they hit you. The Wings looked awfully tired in the third period of game 3 and the Pens need to wear them down. They have every opportunity to win game 4, now it's time to do it.

Ya hungry?

Geno's a funny guy, Yinz Luv 'Da Guins


Some comments on Max Talbot from Geno at today's press conference. What a guy.



Yinz Luv 'Da Guins Game 3



Back later.

Pens make it a series


(AP)
How can you not win with Mike Tomlin in the house?

Whew! What a game. We don't think our hearts ever stopped pounding the entire time. Talk about being on the edge of your seat. This was basically a must-win for the Pens, and in the third period they came out victorious. You will now hear until game-time on Thursday that the last five Stanley Cup winners lost game 3 and that this is the exact position the Pens and Wings were in last year. The Pens win game 3 and we all know what happened in game 4. That was last year, this is now. You can't argue that the Pens are a much better team and have shown they can play with the Wings, whereas last year, well...not so much. This was not the best game the Pens could have played by any means, but two defensemen and Max Talbot stepped up big and sealed the win for the Pens.

It's now all about game 4. Win game 4 and the Pens are going back to Detroit with all the momentum and it's a best of three. Sounds pretty good, right? Of course the Pens can do it. But if you listen to the doubters, this is last year and the Wings are too scary. You can bet your money that the Pens aren't listening though. This may just be their year. Besides, no one ever said it was going to be easy. Hang on because we've got ourselves a series.




Thoughts up later.

Pens down 2-0


(AP)

So the Pens are down two games to none in the Stanley Cup Final. Everyone is blaming Marc-Andre Fleury. Forget the rest of the team, it's all MAF's fault. We might as well give up now because Chris Osgood just can't be beat. We've got two of the best players in the NHL and they just can't score against Chris Osgood, the best goalie to ever play the game. So let's give up, blame Fleury, and hand the cup to Osgood and the Wings. You with us?

Seriously, let's calm the heck down here and at least play the next two games in this series. Are we really the only ones who are flashing back to Washington? The goalie was good and on the Pens' best chances, they just couldn't get that favorable bounce. The Caps took the first two games at home and everyone was worried. What happened after that? The Pens won three in a row and were right back in the series. The Wings are a different monster than the Caps were, but if there is any team that can come back from a 2-0 deficit, it's the Pens. Right? It's not time to stand around like idiots and freak out. It's time to get behind the Pens and believe.

First off, let's admit that the Pens have looked like the better team pretty often in these first two losses. The Pens have definitely had the better scoring chances and just can't get them to go. And before everyone starts saying how awesome Chris Osgood is, we have other things to say. How many posts have the Pens hit? What about Crosby's nice chance last night where Osgood was obviously beat but it hit his skate. Osgood himself thought he was beat. And how about Crosby's other chance where Henrik Zetterberg thought it would be a good idea to once again get his ass in the crease and do something illegal. You couldn't see the puck on that play, but anyone with a brain can plainly see what he did. He knew where that puck was and he used his hand to cover it. Twice in two games. Probably should have been two penalty shots. Bullshit. It's time to call a penalty now and then.

Now let's get to number two, the refs. This is the last thing we ever wanted to discuss because it always gets labeled as whining. And in a lot of cases, it is whining. But we have to take a stand on this series. The lack of penalties being called in this series is nothing short of atrocious. Hossa's slash on Pascal Dupuis just before the Wings scored? Hello! How about Jordan Staal's bloody face on two occasions? Or the infamous Zetterberg puck cover ups. Not to mention the other grabbing, holding, elbowing etc. in this series. This isn't even hockey anymore. It's a joke. The Pens might just have to start lowering themselves to the Wings standards in order to get a win. That and a few favorable bounces. And few less favorable bounces for the Wings.

Other things about game 2:

- Dupuis was put in the lineup last night instead of seven defensemen. We kind of liked the idea at first because Dupuis is a good penalty killer and has a lot of speed. We don't know if we can really say he played well or not. We're kind of eh on this subject.

- We could talk about the penalties some more but, nah.

- We mentioned it above but the Pens have had plenty of chances. Enough chances to beat the Wings. Those go in and we're in a totally different situation. Hopefully being at home will give the Pens the chances they need. And deserve.

- Marc-Andre Fleury was not his best, that was obvious, but the only goal we really had a problem with was the last one by Mr. Applicator (applicator of what? Sorry, we couldn't resist) which he should have had. The D could have been better as well.

- Speaking of goalies, we said above how we feel about Osgood. Some talent obviously, but also very lucky. He's definitely not unbeatable. But last night's dive after Talbot poked him with his stick was awesome. Who the heck does that?! It's the end of the game first of all, what did he think he was going to get out of that? And then the idiot proceeds to toss the puck in his own net. Obviously the whistle had blown and that was not a goal, but aren't goalies superstitious about pucks going into their net? Karma is a bitch. Maybe between Talbot's hit and Osgood throwing a puck into his own net, the Pens will have some good luck at home.

- Sidney Crosby obviously isn't playing quite up to his ability but you can thank Zetterberg and his shitty tactics for that one. Even so, he's played really well and had some great chances last night. We give him a lot of credit for his attitude in talking to the media after games. It's got to get really old talking to the media after every game, practice, skate, whatever day after day. And then when you lose even after you've played well and you're a little frustrated...well, we'd probably be pretty bitchy. He believes in himself and his team. As he should.

- Wah, wah, wah. So Geno isn't suspended for game 3. Like he really should have been? Or like you thought he would or should after the Ovechkin lack of suspension? No. He was frustrated and was trying to do something for his team. Good way to set a tone for game 3. The Pens aren't going to lay down and give up without a fight. Osgood's flop after the Talbot poke would have been enough for us to punch a Wing or two. Let alone Zetterberg and his antics. *Gag*

- How did we not complain about this after game 1? Probably because it was late and we're out of our mind at that time. We might just have to do this later after every game. Anyway, NBC sucks. Not that it's anything new, but for heaven's sakes, WTF?! Do these guys smoke a little something before games or what? We like Darren Pang and Doc but Pierre and Mike? OMG. And that whole you're the coach and what are you telling your players BS and fight between the two was ridiculous. We want someone who actually knows what they're talking about and can make comments we never could. You know, something other than "the puck is on the ice." Geez.

The Pens lost to the Wings again 3-1 to go down two games in the Stanley Cup Final. There is so much to talk about we'll be back later today. But you can get excited about some talk about Geno (above), Zetterberg's illegal activities, how bad NBC sucks, Sidney Crosby, MAF, getting your mind right, and last but not least...how the Pens have been the better team. Yeah, we said it.

For now, we feel like shit. Time to sleep. See you later.
