What NOW?!

by Anne

So yesterday afternoon I asked for some Penguins heroics:

And Geno answered the call, three times over

An hour after the game ended, Twitter was still abuzz with Geno's heroics:

Malkin = bigger than Kobe

As did Chris Kunitz, Sidney Crosby , Max Talbot and Tyler "Fuggo" Kennedy and the Pens won game two of the Eastern Conference Finals 7-4.

The game was back-and-forth until Geno decided to quiet the B-Snaps down and scored his first ever NHL playoff hat trick. Can't let Sidney Crosby have all the glory, can we?

The tongue sticking out showz he's consintraytin'

The Pens take a 2-0 series lead into Carolina, where apparently, if you believe Butter Snaps fans, they will be completely obliterated and head back to Pittsburgh down 3-2, after only four games.

On the one hand I want the Pens to just take care of the Butter Snaps, but on the other hand, I want this series to go to seven games so I can drive down to Pittsburgh and watch the game outside with my wouldbe fellow Pittsburghers.

I suppose I could just wait until the Cup Finals to head down and watch them play Chicago*


My new favorite Penguins bromance. Chris Kunitz and Jordan Staal:

OMG Chris Kunitz finally scored!

Love lifts us up where we belong

Dude, people are looking, let's go back to the bench for the post-goal-fist-bump parade

Yeah, Sid, I like you and all, but where's Gronk?

Hal Gill is a giant, and wants Chad LaRose to be well aware of that.

And finally, your obligatory "Jordan STAAL v. Eric STAAL OMG THEY'RE BROTHERS?!" photograph of the game:

Let's Go Pens!!

*(shhh, don't tell, I really think it'll be Detroit, but lots of 'Hawks fans read this blog and I don't want them to be more discouraged than they already are)


  1. You're secret safe with me, Anne.

    That LaRose/Gill picture is great. He really IS big...or Chad LaRose is a midget on the ice.

  2. The Red Wings are just a boring team to me. Don't know why, but they are. Go Blackhawks!

    Also, I love me a good height difference.
