Game Photos - Kings, Islanders and Rangers

Photos of games that are nearly a week old either age like fine wine or go stale like an old bag of Ruffles.  You be the judge.  Got to have some way to kill three days before the next Pens game, right?  Go beyond the jump to join Knitting Lady and me on our epic 3-game, 4-day, 4-state, 900-mile adventure.

Matt Cooke was serving the first game of a well deserved suspension.  We sure could have used him this weekend.

I felt like my dad wanting to tell these guys to stop horsing around before somebody gets hurt.  And that was before I knew they would go on to be the biggest stars of the night.

Fleury seemed to be okay.

Staal, you could tell, had something special ready for tonight.

There's a familiar face.  Rob Scuderi didn't make things easy on us in his first trip back to Pittsburgh.  He was greeted with a tribute video on the jumbotron.

Heading to overtime.

From 2011-02-10 Pens vs Kings


Kings got lots of good pressure in the extra frame.

From 2011-02-10 Pens vs Kings


Believe it or not, the video below was not edited.  The Kings were getting robbed by Fleury and then we got the puck and started heading the other way.  I thought it might be a good time to switch over to video mode.  Turns out, I was right.

The Pens got a much needed victory and two more points in the standings.  On a personal note, we were relieved to see it.  This game was a late addition to our itinerary, and a good addition it was.  We would see at least one win on this trip.  

From 2011-02-10 Pens vs Kings


Fleury's effort was good enough for second star honors.

From 2011-02-10 Pens vs Kings


First star of the game, Jordan Staal!!!

Somewhat overlooked amidst all the shenanigans was the Islanders doing their best impression of the 80s-era Edmonton Oilers.

Down 3-0, Godard tries to spark the team the best way he knows how.  If only he had Brent Johnson'ed this fool, could have saved us a bit of trouble later in the game.

it was great to see him back out there for the second period.

And we thought this was "all hell breaking loose".  Turned out to be just a warm-up for what was to come in the third.

The Pens came out of the scuffle showing a little life.  That's it boys.  If they want to get dirty, then make them pay on the scoreboard.  There was a glimmer of hope as the lead was cut to 6-2.

From 2011-02-11 Pens @ Islanders


The list of Pens being targeted in this game was longer than anyone first thought.

When you're on a road trip and you just saw a game the night before, and you're shooting unlimited photos and video in this game, and you forget some of your equipment back in the room, the inevitable happens.  Batteries die.  I don't know if it's good or bad that we don't have pictures to remember the third period of this game.  


Anyway, back to the room to enjoy the view.  The Empire State Building sure looked inviting.  What better way to forget a shitty game.  We grabbed a fresh battery and headed out into the frigid night air.

We spotted Dan Potash interviewing players over at the Pens bench.  We waved.  He waved back.  Cool.  We went back to watching the teams warming up and a few minutes later Potash appears in front of us.  He came over to say hi.  What a freaking cool dude.  We chatted for a few minutes and he was more than happy to pose for another sock picture.

Torts took a well-timed TO.  Settled the troops and came up with a game plan designed to rip out our hearts.

Practically before the timeout was even over, Brian Boyle tipped in Mark Staal's point shot to cut the lead in half.  All together now - "Uh oh".

As Gordon Gekko said: "Greed is good".  The Rangers greed was manifesting itself in five unanswered goals.

The Battle of the Third Period was on.

From 2011-02-13 Pens @ Rangers


Pens showed some heart, netting one to cut the lead to 5-3.  More chances would follow, but it wasn't meant to be.

I know what you're thinking.  We should never be allowed back in the state of New York.  With an 0-3 record going back to last season's day after Thanksgiving loss on the Island, I might have to agree with you.  Still, with a healthy line-up, I'd like to take another shot at it.


Good news is the fans at MSG were much better hosts than the fellas over at BSB.  Other than some clowns mocking Sid's concussion after the game, the folks we encountered were all very well behaved.  I wouldn't mind going back someday.


We'll be taking a little break from the action.  Back with more photos following the March 12-13 games against the Habs and Oilers.
