Jimmy earned himself a bunch of new fans around the league tonight. Everything else aside Gonchar was horrid for them tonight.

a couple of plastic beer glasses that were thrown at Crosby and the end of the game when he came back to the bench :clap: :yowza:
[/b]


you cant be serious...thats just unclassy. there is no need for that kind of stuff in hockey.
sure you get mad at certain players. but you dont need to show that kind of disrespect towards a player.
regardless if it was crosby or not we dont need that kind of stuff in hockey. ESPECIALLY at the Joe. Stay Classy will you?

Just watched the replay of the game, what a game. Pittsburgh are lucky it wasnt 5 or 6 to 1, Miller, Bert and Helm all had some wonderful chances.

I'm sure I only speak for myself, but I think Ovechkin is an incredibly reckless player and I don't like him at all.


yes you do only speak for yourself. Ovechkin plays the game like it used to be played. You should read a little about Ovechkins background and where that passion comes from. Compare that to Crosby's sheltered ass life. As a matter of fact Datsyuk's background ain't so laid with golden bricks either. That's why I like them - working class guys that managed to rise above. Unlike certain prima donnas.
Are you kidding? Block you? And miss watching you stumble around the forum looking for an argument like a dog sniffing butts? It would be like turning off a bad episode of Jerry Springer. You know you shouldn't be watching, but you just... can't... help... it...

Well, I mean, Ovechkin is also pretty lucky to have parents that were major athletes as well. He cites them as one of his biggest influences if not the biggest influence. The reason why I say that is because they say he plays so passionate on the ice for his deceased brother.

I think both him and Datsyuk grew up in simple two bedroom maximum flats where they both had to run up the stairs because there simply was no such thing as an elevator.

Great win without Cleary and Eaves!
Absolute domination, and this was off a West coast trip.


Great point. We're normally awful in these games. Maybe the Pens was just what we needed to give us a spark.

And say it quietly boys, but we're within touching distance of 7th!
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Kronwall OBVIOUSLY left his feet like he does EVERY hit. He is just SUCH a cheap and dirty player.

I just watched the game on tape (DVR)... Fleury certainly did not look all that great. Hank and Filppula looked strong on the puck all night. Perhaps even more remarkable was how crisp the Wings' passing was overall as a team. Lets hope they can keep this kind of pace from here on out!

Absolutely hilarious that some Pens fans on LGP thought Zetterberg and Howard were taking cheap shots at the end.

What a doucher Crosby continues to prove he is with that ridiculous disply at the end of the game last night. Once again Z shuts him down, and like clock-work he can't handle it and shows how immature he still is.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

When asked about Zetterberg's ability to contain Crosby, he noted "A lot of guys play you tough," he said. "And, a lot of guys don't have Rafalski and Lidstrom back there."

Nobody pisses Crosby off as well as Zetterberg.


And notice how Crosby whined about Howard after the game. And yes, it was whining.

After the horn, Howard got into the fray and annoyed Crosby. "I don't think that's where he should be," Crosby said. "I don't know what he was doing over there."

Watch the replay again, perhaps if Crosby isn't cross checking Z, that vulcanized rubber thing that they bat around (When not using other players backs) was in the slot area right next to where the blade of his stick would have been if he listen to Mickey.

Now at 3-1 with 3 seconds left a goal does them no good, but what would have been a better end to losing a game:

1) scoring in the last second showing the Versus World (the 1/3 of the hockey world that gets versus) that you play until the end, also scoring on the guy who shuts you down often.

2) showing how childish you are and the lack of emotional control you have by pounding on the back of one of the best all around players in the league known for shutting you down on 5-3, 5-4, and ES.

Me I go for option 2, but I am an immature, poor loser, who often times gets under people skin before, during, and after a game, so take that for what it is worth!

Outside sports I am a nice guy though.

as if anyone needed another reason to absolutely love zetterberg. crosby...what a joke. id love for z to just obliterate crosby like he did in one of the finals (i can't exactly remember which year) but zetterberg hit crosby by the penalty box i believe by the boards and just totally laid him out. what a wonderful occurrence. they should have it out but crosby fights the same way he complains.

From Lets Go Pens:

"It's Detroit...the worst city in the world forever.

Detroit fans feel that they're entitled to all things hockey related. They also think that they are hockey gods, incarnated in a horrible town, in order to revive Northern America. People from Detroit aren't the brightest of the bunch. Most are unemployed, and in a state of perpetual drunkenness."

I'm glad that this site is classier than that...
