Game 37; Pens vs. Caps

Laraque wearing the mic during the pre-game talking to Gary Roberts: "Oh my God! Potash shoots harder than that!"

Errey on Taffe's goal: "That's that secondary scoring you always hear so much about in the NHL. Or in this case, maybe even third-dary!"

Game 36; Pens vs. Bruins

I ended up at this game as well.

However, from the post-game show, courtesy of Sean:
The Ol' Two-Niner was discussing the play where Eaton got hurt. When that play happened, apparently Errey stuck his head in the radio booth and just yelled, "Slew foot! Slew foot!" then went back to calling the game.

Game 35; Pens vs. Isles

I was at the game, so yet again I missed Errey between the glass. Very depressing...

Game 34; Pens vs. Bruins

"If Pittsburgh gets a goal here they can spoil the tea party!"

Anyone else notice that Crosby used the fighting technique from the Mighty Ducks movies?

2) Gloves
3) Shirt

Game 33; Pens vs. Rangers

This game was so awful I think even Errey fell asleep and had nothing to say...

Game 32; Pens vs. Isles

"Ruutu was lying on top of Chris Simon for an eternity! They were going for a roll in the hay!"

"I'm sorry Sidney. Macaroni and cheese! It's not that hard, figure it out!" (Wait...what?)

Game 31; Pens vs. Ottawa

I missed most of this game due a game of my own and having to get skates sharpened. Such is life... I did catch a couple though:

(Montage of shots of dudes in Santa hats eating)
Steiggy: "A lot of hungry Santas at the game tonight."
Errey: "They're trying to fatten up, Steiggy!"

This next one comes to me via text message from Nick, so I don't know if it was actually said. On the other hand, it's too plausible for it to not have been said:
"We gotta find some holes in that Swiss goalie!"

Game 30; Pens vs. Flyers

Embarrassing. Let's move on...

Filling in for Errey and Steiggy...Doc and Edzo!

Emrick after the first hat trick as hats rain upon the ice: "It was a warm day in Philly today so hats weren't worn for the cold. Some were worn for warmth, but others were worn for style."

Edzo on coaching on the losing side of a blowout: "I've been in that situation myself and..." (It doesn't matter how this sentence was ended. It had to be included because it was hilariously truthful.)

So now I will end this with a question:
Do you think it's awkward for Jordan Staal to be living with Mark Recchi now?

Game 29; Pens vs. Canucks

"There's the pickle-stabber with Staal's long pole."

Steiggy: "It looked like there were three Ryan Malone's out there on that shift."
Errey: "There were two Sedin's, why not three Ryan Malone's?!?!?!?"

Power moves: Staal, Malone

And just to be clear...when was the last time we played in Vancouver? Wait...did Marcus Naslund have a good game that night? He had how many goals? And the last one was in overtime?

Game 28; Pens vs. Flames

Kris Letang is "handsy." (Note to self: start counting use of the phrase "Murphy dump.")

"When they're butt to chest, Crosby has the advantage."

Little known fact: Owen Nolan is still in the NHL.

Ryan Malone? He's "handsy" too.

We now know that Gary Roberts' Office is in the opponent's crease. Last night (and many, many previous nights) we learned that Laraque's Office is behind the opposing team's net. New goal for the season: determine where the offices of every Penguins player happens to be.

In case you were wondering: Kris Letang? Still handsy. I hear he also has a long stick.

# of Murphy dumps: 2 (possibly more)

Game 27; Pens vs. Oilers

"Are you calling Laraque a wimp?"

"All Semenko had to do was look at you. He stared me down one time and just said, 'kid, I'm going to kill you.' That was it. He didn't need to take a penalty to get his point across."

Steiggy: "It's like he's (Roloson) got some...sticky stuff on that logo. He keeps holding on to them."

"How you gonna get through his legs and butt?"

Steiggy: "Then it was like an avalanche..."
Errey: "...or an oil gusher...or a hole in the Trans-Atlantic Pipeline!"

Edit: I failed to previously point out that Downtown Robbie Brown (aka Michel Oullet 1989) was in the booth for approximately eight minutes of game time. Highlights:

-having it pointed out that Molinari once described his skating as being like him "wearing galoshes and running on the beach in the sand." This is entirely too accurate...

-Errey goading him into doing his goal scoring celebratory fist pump. This led to MO89 cracking his elbow hard off the wall behind them.

We should place bets on which former Penguin player from the days of Errey shows up in the booth next. (I will also accept appearance by text message, as Dave Hannan provided earlier this season)

New addition to the drinking game: take a drink anytime Laraque is "in his office behind the net." Two drinks if he's "in Gretzky's Offce."

Game 26; Pens vs. "Wayne Gretzky's Phoenix Coyotes"

Due to an internerd outage and my unwillingness to write anything down on a piece of paper, I didn't really get much from this game...or I forgot it already...

"(Bryzgalov) looked like a Clydesdale making that save!"

I just wish I had the appropriate documentation to accurately convey the giant man-crushes Steiggy and Errey had on both Bryzgalov and Keith Ballard.

PS Smell ya later Recchin' Ball. Keep pumping those tiny legs!

Game 25: Staal's neck beard vs. McCabe's mustache

"We're still looking for our Subway Sandwich of the Game. That right there will be a candidate. I had Subway sandwich earlier today, actually. Tuna!"

Game 24: Pens vs. Stars

I only saw about five minutes of the game, so I didn't really get anything. Though I swear I heard the following at some point:

" out with a sports hernia. What do they call it if you don't play sports? Is it just hernia then?"
