looking at the San Jose game from third person

Postby scals37 on Wed Oct 29, 2008 1:03 am

personally, i have my grief and alot of it from tonight..... but i was prepared to bring some friends from work over to watch the game tonight (i moved to a new area last month so im looking for people to just hang out with and watch sports ESPECIALLY pens games if im lucky), and Im so happy i told them to come for a weekend game... cause tonight might as well have made me look like a nutjob. These guys have been skeptical about watching hockey as it is (it seems boring on TV but live is amazing, blah blah) and i tell them you have to watch all the little things in the game to actually get the whole enjoyment and rush out of the sport..... and i say good god im glad it wasnt this game i was demonstrating.....

unless they were San Jose fans. They looked freaking awesome out there. I swear on the 4-4 I thought they had 5 skaters. That game was just the pens playing uninspired hockey and other than Sabu no one put forth any effort until the last 5 minutes. That game should have been 4 or 5 to 0

SJ did look awesome. I can assure you all the SJ fans who don't get to see the Pens very often were probably watching our team and our All Stars thinking "whats the big deal?" 1/2 these arenas are being filled with fans coming to watch our players more than the home teams. When we put on a display like this I wonder what sort of impression they take home of Malkin, Sid, etc...

But yea, tonight was Men vs Boys.....I could barely watch.

When Boston dealt Brad Boyes to St. Louis for a song and a dance. When he was still thought of as a play making center instead of this sniper winger he turned into.

Either way, it's still a kick in the nards when you think what could have been. Granted, it probably would have taken a Goligoski or Letang to get him at that time.

San Jose is one of the 5 best teams in the league. The pens were lucky that Sabourin played out of his mind and that they hit a few posts.

I went to the Blues-Panthers game last weekend and saw boyes destroying them. Granted, it was only the panthers.

I'm psyched about the Blues-Pens game this weekend. It should be a great match up.

I was not expecting the total domination in the face off area. With never being able to start with the puck it put the pens defense on their heels all night. You cannot shoot the puck unless you have possession of the puck.

Don't kid yourself, we can't shoot the puck period.

Well the pens did get themselves into the sharks records.

The Sharks have played 1,044 games since entering the NHL and in none of them did the opposition get off fewer shots on goal than the Pittsburgh Penguins did Tuesday night.
Yes, those Pittsburgh Penguins. The ones with Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and enough overall firepower to reach the Stanley Cup finals four months ago.
But Tuesday at HP Pavilion they managed only 11 shots — one by Malkin, zero by Crosby — as the Sharks shut down one of the league's most potent offenses and emerged with a 2-1 victory.


Being outshot is nothing new for the penguins, but this is the 3rd/4th time this season the margin has been so wide, it is almost comical.

Personally, I've been a little bored with hockey to start this season. Now that could simply be because we enjoyed such a thrilling ride through the post-season last year, and the regular season just seems meaningless right now (which it isn't...I know).

But I also think something has to be done with the NHL to promote more scoring chances. Aside from Penguins games, I've caught a couple of games on Versus and could barely keep from changing the channel in a few seconds. Anybody else feel this way?

And I knew that game last night would be boring. The Devils, San Jose, and the Rangers play a boring style, which is the ruination of what should be the most exciting sport.
