The Pens Blog
Clowe gets the Broadway hat (which is looking pretty beat up, I might add...It has character?), and says he's always wanted to wear it since he saw it on the HBO special. ...He can wear it as much as he wants, if he keeps playing like this.
Just rewatched the highlights for the 4th time. Still can't really believe what I saw. Complete, balanced, 60 minute effort. Boyle's best game of the year. Richie's best game of the year. Gotta keep rolling Friday though. 7th place is nice but Devs and Isles are right there.
You know I really reacted with hostility to the trade immediately, but I think Herman's post put it into perspective of what was done today. And also I think today we got a look at the potential for Clowe and Brassard, not to say they do that every night, but it is definitely there. The main aspect of this trade was to clear cap space for Stepan, Hagelin, Mcdonagh, and Clowe. But if these guys keep playing like this maybe there was more to it... Also didnt watch the game, but how was Moore (saw he scored)? Guess he can't be much worse than Hamrlik
Love the relatively balanced ice time:
Only Asham was under 10 minutes (probably 'cause he had a couple of extended stays in the box).
Best part of this is how the Pensblog turned our trades in to a joke. Even my Pens fan friend was giving me shit for it. Goes without saying, but guess who the joke is on now~
have to say, been following kevs blog from the blogspot days, the salad days. its been fun and gratifying to watch and be a part of the comraderie and inter-activity that has developed through in-game comments over the past two years. really enjoy watching games with you guys. and thanks kev. LGR
The 3 new guys had almost half of gabby's points on the year in one game...STAT OF THE DAY! STAT OF THE DAY!
Does it get any better than that? (Answer: No, not really) You can't ask for a better debut for our 3 new guys. Amazing. Let's go Rangers.
Great game gang.
Now get Haley up here in time for the Maple Leafs home and home...and let's go to war!
He'll be here all week folks. Don't forget...tip your waitress.
@StandnHere Brassard's stat line is impressive. 1 goal 3 assists 73% faceoff wins...
@IcyCup thats 3 words
@IcyCup thats three words
@IcyCup I hate watching in any type of delay... How do you do it knowing it all already happened? I cant do it...
@tygalpin personally I think the joke's on CBJ....
@tygalpin Morrow and Iginla were invisible tonight
@tygalpin They often come on here to talk shit. Not tonight, though. :)
I'll never be able to watch another game without ...."dramatic squirrel"....now I have to keep coming here for every game. :)
@AnnoyingJoe congrats on 1500 pts you whore... enjoy your bj...
@AnnoyingJoe I've been following the blog for a while, but didn't start commenting until this season. Glad I did, the comments section has blown up!
@AnnoyingJoe yeah. it's been real... I remember being pissed about the ads, that things were going to change, but it has gotten better and better... you guys do make it lots of fun...
@GLENsatherVSglennDANZIG still miss him... will miss him... he just didn't fit the system i guess...
@GLENsatherVSglennDANZIG strange feeling... and to think, miller and kreider were sent down... where do all these players fit in?
@jtf1218 you can say that again...
Joe...Asham on the PP...and no squirrel?
@AnnoyingJoe thanks '3PO...
