Awards and Bolts:



The TFS Award for broadcaster of the night goes to Bob Errey for telling Paul Steigerwald to 'Suck on it!' during last night's game. Then they both laughed like a couple of 10 year olds when one of them has said something 'naughty' in front of the adults.The only thing that our FSN dynamic duo have going for them is that neither one of them is Mike Milbury or Doc Emmerick. I keep waiting for Mike Lange to burst into the booth, slice both their throats and take over the broadcast.... Mike, I'll loan you my knife. Seriously, it's sharp and everything.

The TFS award for goal of the night has got to go to Luca 'You'll sleep with the fishes' Caputi. 1st game, 1st shift, 2nd whack at the puck and his first ever NHL goal. Yes, in case you missed hearing it during one of the 16 times someone mentioned it, the last Penguin to acomplish this was Les Manifique' himself, Mario Lemieux. I'm not sure how far Caputi is going in this League, but he'll always have that to brag about. Well that, and his name makes him sound like he's in the Mafia. He'll have that too.

The TFS Looney Tunes Lennie imitation award goes to: The Penguins for saying "Which way did he go, George?" so many times trying to find out what happened to the puck or the Canadien they should have been watching. I feel for the Flower, he made 31 of 35 saves and sometimes seemed to be alone out there....

Ratt note: I hope sometime tonight to see Maximus, TK and Caputi on the same line. I'd like to call it the Scrappy Line. I can only imagine what the three of them could do out on the ice all at the same time..... Are you listening Therrien?

Bash those Bolts: Tonight's game is against the Bolts of the Bay at home. Their goalie, Mike Smith is out with an injury and they have an AHL call-up Karri Ramo and a new guy, Mike McKenna to choose from, but they're not saying who it'll be as of yet, although one 'insider' is betting on McKenna. Tonight is the night of the return of Gary Roberts. Scary Gary has just come off IR (injured reserve) and will be in the line-up tonight. I wonder if anyone is going to be playing those 'Gary Roberts' songs?


I couldn't resist...
I hope Error can resist talking about Gary and his 'Fiji water' if he does I think I'll throw myself through the screen and strangle him. .... Professional broadcaster my a....

Give Dan Potash one for commenting to Luca about Mario and the whole goal on the first shift thing... the poor guy looked incredibly nervous already, and then Dan goes and compares him to Mario. Luca's face was priceless. I hope to see him up in Pittsburgh some more -- he has promise.

I hate saying a game is a must-win, but I think that tonight might just be that for the Pens.

GO PENS!!

If they don't win, they'd better show something positive. They can't just snooze and think Sarge coming back is going to fix everything... by that time it will be too late anyway

Whoo hooo way to go Pens! That is what we needed a W in the win column. Now what ever we did tonight keep it up for Friday. I cant say if we played sloppy or not since I wasnt in front of the TV. Thank God work didnt block Yahoo to check the Pens!
