FINAL SCORE: Penguins - 3, Leafs - 1

I apologize for leaving readers high-n-dry, but I'd rather watch a game then listen to it if I had the choice, but I noticed that due to NHL regulations, only viewers in the Pittsburgh area will be able to view the LIVE feed. I'll do my best to recap (looking off of the Penguins webpage Game Summary)!

(Pens win, 3-2)

  • :15 - Leafs Penalty - Stralman, hi-sticking (Penguins Powerplay)
  • 5:49 - Penguins Penalty - Staal, hooking (Leafs Powerplay)
  • 8:23 - Leafs Penalty / Penguins Penalty - Stapleton, hi-sticking / Sydor, holding
  • 9:33 - Leafs Penalty - Ponikarovsky, slashing (Penguins Powerplay)
  • 11:35 - Penguins Penalty - Sydor, slashing (Leafs Powerplay)
  • 14:03 - Penguins Penalty - Orpik, interference (Leafs Powerplay)
  • 15:22 - Leafs PP Goal - Ponikarovsky; assisted by Boumidienne and Van Ryn
  • 19:49 - Leafs Goal - Grabovski; assisted by Kulemin and Blake
  • Leafs had 17 shots on goal (game total - 29) and Penguins had 3 shots (game total - 21)

Period #3 (random notes)

  • Really nice save by Sabu!!

(Pens lead 3-0)

  • 0:14 - Penguins Penalty - Fedotenko, elbowing (Leafs Powerplay)
  • 1:10 - Malkin [short-handed] goal ; assisted by Staal
  • 6:56 - Penguins Penalty - Bissonnette, misconduct/aggressor (Leafs Powerplay)
  • 10:47 - Penguins Penalty - Malkin, hooking (Leafs Powerplay)
  • 12:32 - Penguins Penalty - Eaton, tripping (Leafs Powerplay)
  • 12:48 - Leafs Penalty - Stapleton, tripping (Penguins Powerplay)
  • 14:30 - Leafs Penalty - Blake, slashing (Penguins Powerplay)
  • 16:46 - Leafs Penalty - Blake, hooking (Penguins Powerplay)
  • Leafs had 7 shots on goal (game total - 12); and Penguins had 9 shots (game total - 18)

PERIOD #2 (random notes)

  • Bissonnette just got a 10-minute misconduct (you gotta love that kid -- looks like nothing less than 5 for him)!! I would LOVE for him to make the team, but I don't think that's likely to happen (if he's normally like this, he's too much of a risk).
  • The "magical" line looks like a fine-tuned machine tonight and Malkin just scored an AWESOME GOAL (Pens now lead 3-0)!!

Pens lead 2-0

  • 1:23 - Leafs Penalty - Frogren, tripping (Penguins Powerplay)
  • 2:05 (PP goal) - Sykora; assisted by Satan and Malkin
  • 5:49 - Leafs Penalty - Newbury, roughing (Penguins Powerplay)
  • 7:52 - (PP goal) Fedotenko's FIRST goal; unassisted
  • 13:20 - Penguins Penalty - Staal, slashing (Leafs Powerplay)
  • 18:56 - Leafs / Penguins Penalties (5-minute majors) - Mayers / Bissonnette, fighting
  • Leafs had 4 shots on goal and the Penguins had 9 shots with 2 goals

  • I'M SORRY, GUYS, I just realized the Pens are posting LIVE stream to the game tonight; MUCH MORE INTEREING!! I suggest you switch over too (click the link above)! GOTTA GO -- THERE'S A FIGHT!!
  • Powerplay line was Satan - Malkin - Sykora
  • GOAL! Penguins!! (these announcers suck by the way -- they keep referring to every player as a penguin player -- no names, so I apologize for not giving you specifics)!
  • PENALTY: Leafs (Penguins Powerplay) -- announcers think Talbot "sold it a little bit"
  • Starting line: Staal - Malkin - Sykora
  • SABOURIN is starting in goal for the Pens tonight.
Tune in to AM640 right now for pre-game coverage. The game will be starting shortly; I'll be posting LIVE blog updates as I did on Monday and hopefully it will go as good as that did. ALSO please keep in mind that I have no official game clock, so I'm unable to post the time / time remaining until the announcers mention it!

Woooooooooooooo! just got home and got all excited when i seen the raw feed, then i realized, i am an ex Pittsburgh. No love for for outsiders.

Read the update Steph and listening to the radio.

Sounds like the Malkin Show! =Beast

Loved that Tank scored and Goose was on the PP.

Man, that sucks about the live feed.

You know NHL, if you really wanted to expand your fan base. You would work a little harder to get games to everyone who want's to watch/listen.
