  2. Washington scored so fast, I didn't even see who scored.

  3. Backstrom scored for the Caps not even a minute in!

  4. Didn't take the Pens long to tie the game.

  5. The Pens take the lead off a Bill Guerin goal.

  6. Another Pens goal. 3-1 Pens

  7. "Maybe the youngster is human!" - Bob Cole on Varlamov after that last goal

  8. Whoa! I leave to eat dinner and spend some time with my family and all of a sudden it's 3-1 Pittsburgh!

    ReplyDelete
  9. And as has not been the case for the past few nights, I will be here for the rest of the night, tonight!

    Of course, you all have most likely left by now.....

  10. I am going to eat dinner myself. I will be back....

  11. WASHINGTON HAS PULLED WITHIN 1!!! MIKE GREEN KNOCKED ONE OFF THE POST AND IN!

    3-2 Pens with 4:52 to go in the 2nd.

  12. Cole just said the puck went off the crossbar instead of the post.

    I know you're 76, but come on.

  13. Crosby scores and it's 4-2 Pens with 15:37 to go in the game!

  14. Crosby scores on the one timer to make it 4-2!!! Satan with the assist!!!*

  15. MURCINA ON THE SHORTHANDED CHANCE AND IT'S A GOAL!!! 4-3!! WHAT A GAME!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Jurcina scores a wild goal and it's now 4-3!!! Capitals just won't go away in this one!

    And I guess you never know. Satan may have had something to do with that puck going in the net. It was a Pittsburgh goal, after all...;-)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Yeah so that's a typo on my part.

    And Cole took about 20 seconds to realize to identify the scorer.

  18. If Pittsburgh wins, so does TSN.

    CBC traded with TSN the rights to Ducks/Red Wings game 1 for Capitals/Penguins game 6, so TSN would be assured a potential close-out game.

    Of course if it does go to game 7 they could say they aired 1 game of a great series. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  19. As shocking as this is to say, Doc Emrick and Daryl Reaugh are by a mile the best team to cover the NHL Playoffs on Versus and could possibly rival the top teams in other sports.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yeah, I knew about the CBC-TSN switch. I've already noted it on my conference semifinal post. ;-)

    I guess they would send Gord Miller and Pierre McGuire to cover the game or just air a U.S. local broadcast (and in turn, literally torture Canada with Joe Beninati, who is the Caps PbP guy).

    Puck The Media described him perfectly. He does not talk about the game, but rather he talks over the game. Ever since I read that I noticed it so much with him that it is ridiculous.

  21. WHAT A CHANCE FOR THE PENS!

    ReplyDelete
  22. TALBOT SCORES!!!! AND WITH 5:14 TO GO, THE PENGUINS MAY HAVE JUST SEALED GAME 4!!! THEY'RE IT'S 5-3!

    ReplyDelete
  23. @JFein, this is completely random.

    Today on the CSN Bay Area show Chronicle Live(Think Sports Reporters/Interview type of show) Jimmy Rollins' mom appeared on the show to talk about Mother's Day.

    BTW, Pens score 5-3. Please I want to see 7 games.

    ReplyDelete
  24. The people at TSN must be jumping with joy right about now...

    ReplyDelete
  25. Kunitz misses on the empty netter but it does not matter!!! THE SERIES IS TIED 2-2!! FINAL SCORE 5-3 PITTSBURGH!

  26. Game Over: The series is tied.

    IN THE WORDS OF MARV ALBERT, YES!!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Pens win 5-3 and that series is tied at 2.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Over to a TSN simulcast of Bruins-Hurricanes. If the Bruins than all 4 conference semifinal series will be 2-2.

    /That line just guaranteed a Carolina win.

    ReplyDelete
  29. SCORE!!! JUSSI JOKINEN!! 2-1 CAROLINA!

    WHAT DID I JUST TELL YOU?!?!?!?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Power play for the Hurricanes up by 1 with 13:52 to go in the game.

    ReplyDelete
  31. "Stall will go streaking in front of the goal." - Gord Miller

    I don't think Tim Thomas really wants to see that...

    ReplyDelete
  32. SAMSONOV SCORES AND IT'S 3-1 CANES!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. SAMSONOV SCORES!!! THIS SERIES IS CAROLINA'S TO LOSE NOW!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Anyone notice how you can barely hear the TSN commentators and they have the crowd drown them out a la the NBA on NBC?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Carolina scores again. GAME OVER, SERIES OVER!

    I will see you guys tomorrow.

    /Time to go to a bar.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Yes, I have noticed that. Then again, Gord Miller is pretty much like Gus Johnson on steroids...

    STALL SCORES!!!! 4-1 CAROLINA!!!! THEY'LL LEAD THE SERIES 3-1 HEADING BACK TO BOSTON!!!

    Oh my.....I just received this bit of breaking news. Jack Edwards has just been diagnosed with a severe case of depression and he may be dangerous. STAY AWAY FROM JACK EDWARDS AT ALL COSTS!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. It's official! 4-1 Canes win! And the series is now 3-1 Carolina.

    ReplyDelete
  38. i just want to thank the NHL for allowing me the "privilege" of having to listen to Joe Beninati tonight and at least the next two games.

    Kill. Me. Now.
