  1. Welp, that didn't work. Another shutout for Marty. Eight straight periods without allowing a goal.
  2. Going into the third period of tonight's game, Martin Brodeur has a ridiculous shutout streak against the Penguins. He shut them out completely the last game (12/21), didn't allow a goal in periods 2 and 3 of the game before that (11/12), and hasn't allowed one in the first two periods tonight.
  3. Adams definitely wasn't looking at the puck there, but it certainly didn't look like he was trying to injure Alfredsson, either. If he was leading with anything it was the back of his shoulder. At worst that's an interference penalty. If you watch that video and conclude that Craig Adams needs to be "investigated", I don't really know what to say to you. It's a shoulder injury. Maybe Brian Murray can call someone at the league offices (again) and complain about his team not getting more powerplays. Probably would be better to talk to his own team, though, since they negated two of their own last night by taking bad penalties.
  4. I hate the Red Wings as much as anyone, but pretending like they're not a great organization doesn't make it true.
  5. Congrats to Mike Rupp. Before this year, the most goals he had scored in a season was six. He put three past King Henrik tonight. And it was his kid's birthday, too! Aww.
  6. From the Pittsburgh Tribune Review: ? The Penguins will wear their alternate, baby blue uniforms today ? marking only the second time since they debuted at the 2008 Winter Classic at Buffalo that they've worn those threads away from Mellon Arena. The Penguins are 2-0-0 in those games. They will wear their alternates for one more road game, not including possible away playoff contests. The club plans to introduce a new alternate uniform for its first season at Consol Energy Center, and there is continuing debate among team executives as to whether baby blue or navy blue will be part of that design. So it hasn't been decided yet. Hopefully it's an all-new jersey.
  7. Agreed, that concept is fantastic. Adopt that with the original skating Penguin crest and you have a classic. Unfortunately, it'll probably be a throwback giving some relief to the idiots wearing the Lemieux cup-era jerseys with "87 CROSBY." Man those people are terrible.
  8. Yeah? And so is fighting, which by the way should be banned from all of hockey. Different argument. My point is the NHL shouldn't make any rules that could possibly dissuade a player from wearing a visor.
  9. It's such a ridiculous penalty. Why would you ever penalize someone for wearing a visor? Bonehead rule.
  10. What, George Parros' 'stache can't backcheck?
  11. Just fire your coach. Boom, Stanley Cup.
  12. Man, I was there, and that's gotta be top five greatest sporting events I've ever been to. I can't think of three that beat it right now. What a game. What a finish. It still only counts for one in the standings, but talk about getting your money's worth. Now hopefully we can get healthy and stay healthy, because watching Ben Lovejoy and Martin Skoula pretend to be NHL defensemen isn't fun.
  13. I don't think anyone disagrees with that. Do you think he's lying, though?
