NYI come to town tomorrow night
 
Let's get this started

Looks like Travis Hamonic is going to miss tomorrows game and some time after spraining his ankle last night against the Jets

I'm not sure what poster said it but the Pens haven't been the same since THAT Islanders game and he's right. The Pens aren't grinding *****es down like they used to.

I'm hoping the Pens sack up and remember that nice teams usually don't win championships.

Ian Altenbaugh 01-28-2013 02:37 PM

I'll be attending this game as a member of the media. Will be tweeting from the rafters along with the other members of the media (and scouting pigeons).

Should be a good one. Pens always seem to elevate their game against the Isles...or lose their mind....

I agree, the Pens haven't been the same team since that donnybrook a few years back that involved Trevor Gillies revealing the type of person he is (cheap shots, going after goaltenders, etc). They have been a mentally fragile team since then, capable of losing their cool (and control of the game) at seemingly the drop of a hat.

Either way, it'll be entertaining.

Do us a favor and tape a "kick me" sign on Rossi's back, ok?

Only if Madden doesn't beat me to it.

Darth Vitale 01-28-2013 02:43 PM

Madden doesn't like Rossi? :laugh: First I've heard of that. Maybe we can find some use for these two after all (media feud!).

If you put a "punch my neck rolls" sign on Madden's back, he'll be too busy fighting people off to bother with Rossi's sign.

UnderratedBrooks44 01-28-2013 02:44 PM

I think a little more proof/research is warranted before declaring that particular game signified some change in how the team plays. Plus, grinding *****es down isn't the same as playing with an edge. Grinding *****es down represents Bylsma's jilted philosophy involving everyone playing the same way, foregoing skill for grit in all areas, and blunting our most powerful weapons. No thanks.

Darth Vitale 01-28-2013 02:45 PM

Yah I don't think a shortage of grinding is this team's problem but I may be mistaken.

Shrimper 01-28-2013 02:46 PM

Win is the only thing I want. Need to go on a streak of 4/5 wins.

A week or so ago MM went on a 4-5 min rant on Rossi cutting him down. Was a bit funny.

It was a joke. The media floor is filled with a lot of people who get a long and know eachother. Madden loves to rake people over the coals for good fun. He also loves to talk about the virtues of Diet Rite soda.

For fun, last year I joked to him that I was in the Shaler hall of fame. He didn't find it funny.

So I entered the contest on the Pens site to win a pair of tickets to every home game this season. I didn't win. My sister-in-law's boss did. He gave the tickets for tomorrow's game to her. This is good cause my brother-in-law is a big fan. Now I just need to know what snacks this guy likes and show up at her job with snacks for everybody while wearing my Pens hat. That should work, right?

I'm not sure if you guys have heard about the accident that happened on McKnight Rd. yesterday, but it was one of my best friends. He was pronounced dead at the scene. He was a huge Pens fan. The last Pens game that he was able to go to was last season. It was Geno's 50th goal. He was in the background of one of the pics from the Pens website. He posted here a few times but mostly just read.

The next game that he was supposed to go to was tomorrow night.

Matt Martin is going to make a physical presence in this game. I wonder if the New York Islanders will pull a cowardly move and dress Joe Finley and Eric Boulton. If so, they're going to lose the game badly.

Hahah.

Sure.. go ahead and pretend like you're all a bunch of amiable professionals... how am I supposed to convince you to abuse Rossi now? Kill joy. Meantime I have to go find this Madden thing. Sounds like the best piece he's broadcast in ... since i became a Penguins fan before the fire sale.

(Look forward to your updates.)

Just saw this.

Very sorry to hear it JWells. [Hope you're doing all right, considering the circumstances.]

UnderratedBrooks44 01-28-2013 03:09 PM

I'm happy just about every team in the league is at least somewhat exciting to watch these days. It wasn't too long ago I dreaded most Isles, Devils, and Wild games, and back to backs made me want to kill myself.

Frederick Stanley 01-28-2013 03:41 PM

Any news on Nisky?

I believe I heard they aren't updating his status until tomorrow.

Just expect it to be a lower body injury that he'll be out day to day with.

Woah I didn't say anything about professionals. Amiable yes, but lets not get ridiculous....

eXile59 01-28-2013 03:56 PM

Excited to see Strait. Playing 17 minutes a game for them. God I hate Lovejoy. As a hockey player of course. Seems pretty cool as a person.

Glad I'm not losing my mind. I was near 100% certain before that post that those two (and others like them) are anything but professional journalists.

MetalheadPenguinsFan 01-28-2013 05:06 PM

Hopefully Sid and or Geno light the Isles up tomorrow night. :yo:
