Know When to Hold ‘Em

14 Apr

I’m not getting too excited over the Game 1 victory in Pittsburgh, because Kenny Rogers says you never count your money while you’re sitting at the table.  But there was definitely some screaming last night (aside from cries of anguish over the Blackhawks) because I do get excited over strong starts and shutouts.


James Neal with a *sick* pass to Kovalev, looking like he’s unloading on net but he’s going wide ON PURPOSE!  The Nealmoble honks in approval.  And guys like Aaron Asham scoring goals… holy crap I love this team.

Honk if you like my hair!

Flower was ON IT last night and that’s what the Pens needs more than anything, especially against the Bolts.  So much love for MAF-bomb today.  If don’t love bbFlower with his short hair and giant draft-day smile… we question you.

    I was so happy to see Asham have a little moment. And Orpik, holy lord what a game he had! That’s not to say the bolts didn’t have a great game too. Going into the third period I wasn’t sure how either of them was ever going to score. I’m glad the team’s grandpa Kovy could shift the momentum in our favor though.

      Me too – I think Asham is often overlooked/underrated. I think he’s good at protecting the puck and navigating his way through neutral ice. It was great to see him get a goal.

      And there’s always plenty of Free Candy in the playoffs!

    Unfortunately, I had to watch the game at a sports bar that was doing karaoke simultaneously. The first two periods, I thought I was going to kill someone. Flower was OUT OF HIS MIND! AHHHH! GO PENS!

    I recorded the game and I’m watching tomo. But I’m feeling it. I will be feeling it all the way till they face my Beloved B’s. Then I won’t. Obviously.
