Pens vs. Rangers; Game 3

"Their defense are just like...TREES in front of Marc-Andre Fleury!"

"You could hear him coming from, uh, Madison Avenue there!"

"When you get a high sticking on Hal Gill, you're really getting your stick up. He's a tall man!"

Did anyone else see Gorgeous Georges kiss Potash? That was fabulous. Someone get that up on youtube...

"Rest that groin up!"

"...you can whip it like a jai-lai player."

"They couldn't move their feet! It looked like they were stuck in cement...It was like John Gotti got a hold of them or something! Can you imagine?!?!?"

So I have to ask...what's up with Jagr and his Hitler mustache? I mean, I guess you could say it's an extension of his stupid soul patch (editor's note: never grow a soul patch...), but even still...

Pens vs, Senators; Game 4

Okay...I really don't get the whole "booing other team's stars" thing. What did Crosby do to Ottawa that he gets booed every time he touches the puck? I understand Pens fans booing Derian Hatcher when he touches the puck. For a while I understood booing Jagr (which just seems ridiculous nowadays. Let it go, people). I just don't get random cities booing stars (Crosby, Ovechkin, etc) whenever they touch the puck. Especially since Crosby plays better when he gets mad/challenged. Do people really think it will throw a good player off their game? To summarize: stupid. (Of course, I'm also an advocate of never booing the home team...which not many people ever agree with me on. Will booing make them play better? No. Will cheering them on when they're struggling and needing support help them play better? A lot more likely than being negative.)

"His arms are going to fall off! It's a shooting gallery out there!"

Steiggy: "He is a man of sartorial splendor, Evgeni Malkin."

So if there was one word to describe Petr Sykora's stick, it would be _______.

"The kids in amateur have a stop sign on their back. Do they need it here for the Ottawa Senators?"

"What are you telling me? A couple detentions for Gary?"

Okay...watching the game on my DVR screwed me and I missed the last 5 minutes or so of the game as I didn't plan ahead and record whatever was on afterwards. Post anything I missed. Also, to Ryan: I missed the quotes you texted me about ("boiling an egg behind the net" and the maid comment). I'm hoping someone will post those in the comments.

So what did we learn tonight? Evgeni Malkin throws away Petr Sykora's shoes on a daily basis.

Pens vs. Senators; Game 3

Gary Roberts on Sean Avery's jackass-ery:
Pittsburgh veteran Gary Roberts at first didn't want to even comment on it before finally saying as he walked away from me: "He's an idiot. That's my quote."

So just to clarify: Are we really going to go through 3 of the first 4 games of the playoffs without HD? Were all the HD trucks tied up at the Masters or something? In the immortal words of GOB, "Come on!"

Steiggy: "They have an actual Senator out on the ice...or someone posing as one" (in regards to the guy dressed as their logo...I'll leave it up to the reader to determine which of Steiggy's options is more plausible)

"The Penguins have talked about opening up the legs of Gerber."

"I love when the referees pick up the twig and...start hopping." (did he say hopping there?)

I wish there were a way to wager on things like, "Bryan Murray complains about officiating even though Chris Neil keeps punching people to get thrown in the box."

"There's some garbage on the ice. The 'classy' fans in Ottawa. Not all of them... It only take a few dodos."

Pens vs. Senators; Game 2

"He overtook McAmmond like he was a midget player going against a pee-wee!"

"He almost made you eat your words, Steiggy!"

"He may be in the wrong kitchen right now."

"Bass replaced fish [...] I don't what they have next, trout?" (No idea on that first sentence...)

"It won't go back to small. It will just stay big!"

I have no idea how to transcribe Errey singing the music they play when Ottawa's ice crew comes out...let's just say it was phenomenal...

"In game one we saw Fleury give Lapointe the business!"

Steiggy: "...from Pilsner in the Czech Republic."
Errey: "Is that the beer spot?"

"That's what chemistry is...telepathy..."

I had to radio it for the third period on my way to play my own game, so post anything I missed in the comments. So instead of reading about the third period commentary, just go out and purchase the new Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds album.

Pens vs. The Douchebag Bryan Murray/Senators; Game 1

"Mr. Roberts in his neighborhood..."

Steiggy: "He's a native of Switzerland and the Penguins would love to make him look like Swiss cheese by the time this series is over."

J & D Waterproofing commercial featuring Bob Errey = best commercial ever. "1-800-very-dry" (Okay, fine. I'm not sure if this can beat the Steubenville commercial because it lacks the sweet, sweet music...)

"You don't want to take your head off that...er your foot off that snake there, Steiggy."

"It says Warrior on his gloves. That's the company name, but it could also be Gary Roberts' name."

"Therefore they can't bang the players they want to bang." (okay, horribly out of context, but still hilarious...)

On Crosby's injury earlier in the season: "That's like caging up an animal! He must have been going crazy watching those games!"

Steiggy: "Right in Mr. Robert's neighborhood!"

I don't know about anyone else, but I think the Senators were tanking this game. They clearly are hoping to take this to six games so they can get back to Ottawa again...

Game 82; Pens vs. Flyers

So yeah...I'm late getting this up. I blame Marcus.

Watching this game in a room where Pens fans were outnumbered by Flyers fans 3-2 means I really didn't get to pay much attention to the game/commentary. Oh well.

On Hal Gill:
Steiggy: "He's like a big aircraft carrier out there!"
Errey: "He sure is!"
(Of course, this was followed by the Pensblog shout/crediting the reference. Looks like Steiggy loves reading the blogs!)

That was all I got. I'm sure it was probably a good one for commentary though. Let me know what I missed. Again, I blame Marcus...

Game 81; Pens vs. Flyers

So I missed a large portion of this game. I apologize for that. Post anything I missed in the comments.

"Hey. Be a man. Tap him, and if you want to go, drop your gloves."

"Really, the only thing you can do is say, 'Mr. Hartnell, I hope that penalty cost you the playoffs.'"

"It's almost like a swimmer trying to get water out of his ear. That's what Malkin looked like."

Steiggy: "It's not easy to play against Rob Scuderi and Hal Gill. It's like playing in seaweed!"
Errey: "And then you got Jordan Staal who's all over you as well [...] The big pterodactyl!"

"They're going to be knocking on Lord Stanley's...chalice."

So have the Flyers still not learned that making Crosby angry is a terrible idea? I mean, how many times does it have to bite them in the ass before they realize, "maybe we shouldn't take cheap shots at Crosby because he kills us when he gets mad."

Game 80; Pens vs. Rangers

I'm too lazy to write anything here...
