well, its me again lol..
we actually sold this game to some family friends, but i couldnt resist. PittPenguins66 had 2 extra tickets behind him on his end of the rink and i ate em up.. how can i pass up seeing the dirty stinkin Flyers? piss on em.. (sorry Walt)
before the game PittPenguins66 got me my Pascal Dupuis player shirt. he gets a sweet discount and a free parking pass, giddie up..
let me just say, hands down before the game and during there was a bit of playoff type atmosphere going on. that was just great to see and hear.
again Pittsburghs own Bill Thomas was a scratch.. that doesnt have the same ring to it as Pittsburghs Own Ryan Malone had.. bah greedy prick..
this game was a tight checking battle, had a lot of small bs back and forth then about 4 plus mins in Godard and Riley went at it. pretty dang good fight, both landed some nice blows and nobody went down. this reminded me of Ruutu and Tucker from last year. solid fight!! link below..
after that the teams traded some PP's etc.. bah whatev.
a few solid scoring chances by the Flyers as well as the Pens.. first period was scoreless.
in the 2nd period the Penguins had some PP's and finally cashed in on one. The Candy Man Brooks Orpik let go of a wrister from the point and it went through a screen and it was 1-0 good guys. a few mins later Ziggy scored on a one timer assists to The Cookie Monster and Godard.. the crowd was gay and the place was rockin.. with about 2 mins to go in the period the lame bandwagon fans got up to get a pop and nachos and they missed a Flyer goal that went off of the U.S,.S. Gil that made in 2-1. then with just 23 seconds left in the period the Flyers won a clean faceoff (off of a bs icing IMO) and let go of a wicked slap shot and boom just like that 2-2.. booooooooooooo's rained down from the Penguins loyal fans still in their seats..
went to stand up, back hurt lol.. damn seats are made for those small fellas, terrible!!
the 3rd period wasnt much, back and forth a bit. a few pp's but no goals.
overtime started and i then said to Lou, "Pascal Dupuis" with the game winner, mark it down.. he said bah not a chance.. ot was up and down action for the most part, not many stoppages, then it happened. The Candy Man made a GREAT outlet pass to Dupuis who in which bobbled it from stick to skate and back to stick, then let loose of a wicked blast coming right at our seats and BANG back of the net. what a shot and what a pass, crowd was then in a gay tizzy yet again. solid win for the Pens getting them above 500 and thus keeping the Flyers winless..
Holler, Lets Go Pens..
see ya Thursday at the Igloo when AO comes to the Burgh to take on Sid..
p.s. damn you lou, stuck in the lot for 25 mins.. GHEY!!
