Its always horrible to watch a Pens game on NHL Network cause they always use the Pens feed

They are awful ,, Easily the worst PbP guys in NHL

Though to be fair only 1 of them is truly brutal. Not sure which guy it is but the one who complained thru entire rest of game about Ranger goal should have not counted because Penguin touched puck with his glove off faceoff

They used to have the legendary "beat him like a rented mule" Mike Lange for years but they fired him. I believe they replaced him with their radio guy.

Detroit and St. Louis both won but I think we can start a magic number counter for the Central Division pretty soon. Will be nice to go out of the division by winning it. Screw you Detroit. Most points Wings can get is 63, most for St. Louis is 66. Hawks have 58 currently.

Yeah that was pretty funny. He calls the game like the worst biased fan in the building. I'm used to it now though, and not sure if Pens are worst (the competition is fierce). Literally every CI feed when Hawks play is the ops feed. Not sure why. Last season we had a good number of games with Foley but not this season. It is hilarious how many times these guys mix up Shaw, Stalberg and Bickell during the play by play ... and when Brookbank plays, he often is mistaken for Seabrook. Doh.

avs guys are pretty terrible. they'll hype their overrated players all game and when the opponent scores they barely say anything. datsyuk scored ot winner yesterday and they said the quietest "goal" I've ever heard. really kills the game

Actually, they always use the home feed. Maybe you're just only seeing Pens home games.

Lange IS the radio guy, so no, they didn't fire him...

I think you might be confused Im talking about the TV pBp. Mike Lange called the Pens games on FSN for years with Paul Steigerwald as colour. Steigerwald had also done radio pbp as well. They fired Lange a few years back and replaced Lange with Steigerwald and former Pen Bob Errery now does colour. Lange just does the radio feed now.

Quote:
“I have a theory on concussions,” he said. “I think the reason there's so much more of them — obviously the impact and the size of the equipment and the size of the player — but there's another factor: everyone wears helmets, and under your skull when you have a helmet on, there's a heat issue.

“Everyone sweats a lot more, the brain swells. The brain is closer to the skull. Think about it. Does it make sense? Common sense?” said Carlyle, who said he'd never talked to a doctor about his premise, which he was introduced to by Jim Pappin, the former Leaf who also played his career helmet free.

“I don't know if it's true, but that would be my theory. Heat expands and cold contracts. The brain is like a muscle, it's pumping, it swells, it's a lot closer to the outside of the skull.”
Carlyle is an idiot

good God they play hall and oates in la. horrible

also meant to bring this up awhile ago, but had anyone else been watching the caps lately? ovechkin looks like a beast again. i write that team off like 2-3 weeks ago but the combo of playing better plus being in that division makes them look like the playoff favorites right now imo.

Hall and Oates is not horrible. They have had many good songs and I am fan (I enjoy Soul/R&B ,, They were best blue eyed soul of there era)

And Oates finally putting Ovechkin and Backstrom together has been big for there success
