Hearing good things about Zibby  
gmen9892 : 12/5/2017 5:23 pm : link
He is already on the stationary bike. I am hoping he is back next week at some point.

As was mentioned, tough week this week starting with the hot Pens tonight, then Caps and Devs back to back this weekend. Would love to get off to a hot start tonight, but I am worried about the matchup.

This is the first big test in awhile for this team (been 2 weeks since the back2back losses to the Blackhawks and CBJ). Anything less than 3 points this week is going to be rough, as this team cant afford to fall too far back given the brutal start.
Pav gets the start, Henrik out with the flu.  
Mad Mike : 12/5/2017 5:25 pm : link
Good times.
We are screwed  
NYerInMA : 12/5/2017 5:44 pm : link
No Zib, no Henrik.
LOL

Every year it seems like Hank conveniently comes down with an illness before facing an elite team.

Back when he was single, the once/twice a year "illnesses" I usually chalked up to a STD... but now married with kids, maybe he's just prone...

regardless, this is a good game to see what Pavelec's got.
I'm sure the filthy Yinzers

all hopped up on 1500-calorie cole slaw-riddled Primanti brothers sangwiches, flat Iron City beer straight outta the can and horrific body odor will be in full force tonight cheering on Cindy Pussy and his merry band of bubble gum-chewed clits. And that's just the women.

Don't get me started on the men. Holy shit.
I hate that fucking midget

MetsAreBack : 12/5/2017 8:13 pm : link
pots his first career NHL goal. Good for the kid.
They were really scrambling in that period  
Kyle in NY : 12/5/2017 9:15 pm : link
after a pretty good first. Yet we've had 6 odd man rushes and none have resulted in a goal. Got to take your chances a bit better than that. Grabner with a wide open net but he was too fast for his own good.

Pens are going to bring it in the third, can't go into the shell
Malkin and his bitch Russian limp wrists

Complaining as usual. These guys are toilet stains.

Iron City Beer - absolutely the worst piss beer I've ever tasted. Makes Schaefers' Beer taste great...
BS penalty on Shattenkirk  
NYerInMA : 12/5/2017 9:36 pm : link
and of course they score on a breakaway. Nice glove hand Pavelec.
Flukey as fuck  
bigbluehoya : 12/5/2017 9:48 pm : link
And Ill gladly take it
Whew, got dicey at the end there  
NYerInMA : 12/5/2017 10:06 pm : link
But that's a big road win.
I love beating these fucks  
redbeard : 12/5/2017 10:06 pm : link
Flukey or not
Yup, don't care how they do it  
Greg from LI : 12/5/2017 10:07 pm : link
Beating the scum is always a pleasure
Pavelec was really good  
Kyle in NY : 12/5/2017 10:09 pm : link
Good for him. Nerve wracking as ever trying to close out a game against that team. But on the road against a team with that talent, without our #1 center, you take them however you can get them
Broadway Hat to Greg tonight  
MetsAreBack : 12/5/2017 10:24 pm : link
way to step it up pal, and not let that little instigator fuckstain get away with any shit. That cumslut is probably still going around asking where he can store his car outside NYC for cheap.

Oh yeah - and congrats to Boo on his first career NHL goal, Pavelec on a nice road win (fuck it - start him in Washington, let Hank rest up his sniffles for the Devils on Saturday)... and to Tarasenko Buchenvich, the Duke, on his 10th goal already on the year.
Holy shit  
MetsAreBack : 12/5/2017 10:28 pm : link
i see they put 40 shots on net in the 2nd/3rd periods. Take the win, great job by Pavelec.. got some stuff to clean up with 6 games in 9 days upcoming starting Friday night.
Nice Win  
Percy : 12/5/2017 10:33 pm : link
Even if the winning goal was a weirdo, fluky bounce off a Pens skate. Especially good to get this done in their rink. The King has the flu? Didn't take the shot or what?
When that team gets rolling  
Kyle in NY : 12/5/2017 10:43 pm : link
it's almost impossible to get the puck off them. A lot of shots allowed but I really didn't think they played poorly, and they generated plenty of high caliber chances themselves. That's just how it goes sometimes against Pittsburgh

I read that the flu shot is a particularly poor match to the dominant strain seen so far. I saw a 10% effectiveness rate, but I'm not sure if that's accurate. Hopefully that experimental universal flu vaccine will be ready for market soon.
Big win..  
FatMan in Charlotte : 12/5/2017 11:03 pm : link
and helpful to try and put a little distance on others. The spread from first to worst is the tightest I've seen in many years, if not ever.
Watching NHL network  
MetsAreBack : 12/5/2017 11:08 pm : link
And go watch detroits third goal tonight. Player had both feet in the blue paint, wasn't pushed by a defender, impeded Hellebyuck and hit him as shot arrived. Goal counts.

Contrast it with Nash last week not having any feet in the paint and contacting goalie (barely no different than wings player tonight) ... a full second or two before shot. Goalie comes outside his crease area to establish a position. Costs us the game vs Florida.

I remain thoroughly fucking confused by Toronto and its make shit up as you go approach.
This team is deep at the forward position  
Vanzetti : 12/5/2017 11:47 pm : link
No great lines but just strong across the board. The more aggressive they are, the more they wear other teams down. And Chytil will probably be up by the end of the year.

They do need a speedy pucking moving dman. I was hoping it would be DeAngelo but the kid only has three points at Hartford.

But overall this team is built to contend for the next five years.

The counter attack lead to several odd man rushes that could have/should have scored, Grabner's in particular.
Nice to see Boo  
bigbluehoya : 12/6/2017 8:09 am : link
Hit paydirt. Well deserved, he has been extremely solid for them. Better than Id have expected. Really heavy DZ starts, and nonetheless a +7 with positive possession metrics.

Hes making a case to get more than the 11 mpg of TOI hes been seeing.
Pavelec looked good enough to warrant more starts.  
BrettNYG10 : 12/6/2017 2:34 pm : link
As others have said, it's amazing how tight this division is.

Greg stepped up. B/MAB are weak and afraid of the spotlight.
Just when i think the Devils are finally coming back to Earth  
MetsAreBack : 12/6/2017 2:37 pm : link
didnt look good at Colorado.. got blown out in Phoenix...

The respond with a whooping of Columbus on the road.

Taylor Hall is ridic.... which all of us knew years ago... how the fuck does Chiarelli still have a job??
...  
BrettNYG10 : 12/6/2017 2:43 pm : link
I'm not buying the Devils yet.

I think the Islanders are more likely to be a surprising top 3 Metro team. Barzal is really good.
Scum Scum Scum, go back to where you're from!  
YAJ2112 : 12/6/2017 2:45 pm : link
why would the Islanders be considered a surprise?  
MetsAreBack : 12/6/2017 2:48 pm : link
they had a tough year last year, but are two years removed from making the conference semifinals.

Its such a tough division - cant believe they refuse to loosen these wild card rules a bit. The concept of 3 teams from each division is fine, but they need to prevent outlandish first and second round series... like having the 2nd and 3rd best teams in a conference meet in round 1 or having the best two teams in the NHL meet in round 2.

Then again, Penguins seems to win the Cup anyway...
I think most people had WAS/PIT/CBJ as the top three in the Metro.  
BrettNYG10 : 12/6/2017 2:51 pm : link
I'd classify any other team as a bit of a surprise to consensus rankings.

I thought the Islanders would be in the mix for a playoff spot. I didn't think Barzal would be this good this quickly.

what was the point of that, to take the two teams with the least amount of cap space this coming offseason and pretend Tavares will play for one of them for $5 mil?

Barry Trotz on Kevin Shattenkirk: "I think everybody thought of him as a 1-2, and he really wasn't. He was a little lower."
Says the guy  
Kyle in NY : 12/7/2017 1:58 pm : link
playing Brooks Orpik 21:35 a night
everyone thought Barry Trotz was a Stanley Cup quality coach  
Greg from LI : 12/7/2017 2:38 pm : link
But he's a little lower.
Barry Trotz has coached in the NHL for 19 years  
Greg from LI : 12/7/2017 2:40 pm : link
and not once has one of his teams escaped the second round.
.  
arcarsenal : 12/7/2017 2:40 pm : link
Trotz and Boudreau should get a beer together someday.

Pretty much the same shitty guy.
Don't dare insult Boudreau in my presence.

Well done Greg.
Wow  
MetsAreBack : 12/7/2017 6:08 pm : link
thats i guess somewhat refreshing to hear a coach actually say something like that... but what the fuck is he trying to accomplish by saying it?

And WTF is he talking about to begin with.. if everyone thought Shattenkirk was a "1-2" going in... then the Caps would not have acquired him (with the best regular season record in the league) for essentially a #28-31 overall pick.

What a sore fucking loser. You lost to a Crosby-less and Letang-less Pens team because Holtby sucked and Ovehckin sucked. Shattenkirk actually won the sore dick game 3 on the road to get you back in the series while your other players were kicking pucks into their own nets. unreal.
Naturally,

NYI-Pitt gets an extra point out of it. Wouldnt have it any other way.
