NHL Thursday Night Live Thread, 11/5

Now that Baseball Is Over, There's A Full Slate of Hockey Games On Tonight! [NHL Live Thread]

11/5/09 in NHL   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

Hello out there in FanIQ Land on this Thursday night, where it's a hockey night in North America!  Tonight, for your viewing pleasure (now that baseball is done for the year), there are 10 games on the ice tonight.  From an Original Six battle in Boston between the Habs & Bruins to L.A. where the Pens put their perfect road record on the line against the Kings and the NHL's leading scorer Anze Kopitar, there's plenty of action to be had across the NHL.  In addition to Boston and Montreal kicking off the night, another game begins at the same time between the Blue Jackets and Thrashers in Atlanta.  Both teams have started off pretty well.  A half hour later, the Lightning face off with the Senators up in Ottawa, eh?  Along with them is a huge matchup in Detroit between the Sharks and the Wings.  At 6-4-3, the Wings are still trying to get it together, and will look for another big performance out of Chris Osgood, who shut the Bruins out a couple nights ago.  Following those 2 games, the Canucks will travel to face the struggling Wild, and shortly thereafter, another hot Canadian team, the Flames, are in the Gateway to the West for a duel with the (so far) mediocre Blues.  Chicago and their insane scoring machine of an offense are out in the desert against the Coyotes who are still chugging along much better than expected.  Then it's the Rangers who continue their tour of western Canada, this time in Edmonton.  2 struggling clubs square off in Anaheim, the Ducks and Predators, and the night capper is in L.A., where 2 red-hot teams will put it all on the line, it's the Pens and Kings.  Here's tonight's full lineup...



7:00 PM ET:
Columbus Blue Jackets @ Atlanta Thrashers
Montreal Canadiens @ Boston Bruins

Tampa Bay Lightning @ Ottawa Senators

They're not gonna beat San Jose playing like this either, and they all know it.  They'll have to step up BIG TIME to have any chance to win.  They can't win in California, makes it look like last game in Anaheim was a fluke.

Wow! nice play

11/6/09   |   Dubya   |   39 respect

Hey that Kopitar is pretty Damn good himself. I dont ever see him. This won't make a difference for the Pens. Still gonna have tough games against the Sharks and Bruins.

11/6/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

Congratulations, Pens, you've just played your WORST 3rd period of the year, and you still have time to give up more goals, bravo!

 

11/6/09   |   Dubya   |   39 respect

Damn!

11/6/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

There goes Pittsburgh's perfect road record, they've been playing to lose this entire 3rd period.

 

11/6/09   |   Dubya   |   39 respect

PP has been horrible. Need to get it going now.

11/6/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

Crosby made the defender fall down go boom.

11/6/09   |   Dubya   |   39 respect

Things just got a little more interesting

11/6/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

That equalizer was inevitable.

Showed a stat during the game that Bylsma had the 2nd best reacord of any coach after their first 40 games.

I saw that too.  His opponent tonight is the one with the #1 record.

2-1 lead for the Pens as they get ready to start the 3rd period.  Under Dan Bylsma, they're 19-0-1 when leading after 2 periods, that is un-freaking-believable!

2-1 lead for the Pens as they get ready to start the 3rd period.  Under Dan Bylsma, they're 19-0-1 when leading after 2 periods, that is un-freaking-believable!

Ha! Scuderi was asked on the radio today who he would like to hit on the Pens. He said Staal. Guess he got'em a lil 'bit. Pens played better in the 2nd. Should be a great 3rd

gotta love the guy behind the Kings benck wearing the Steeler shirt

11/6/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

Nice job trying to shoot the puck 2 seconds after the whistle was blown, jacka$$.

 

11/6/09   |   Dubya   |   39 respect

What a save!

11/5/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

Kunitz and Orpik just got me some fantasy points, Kunitz got the redirect off Orpik's long-range shot, 2-1 Pens!

Keep the shots coming from near the blue line Pens.

This is one hell of a game right now

Glass delay in L.A.

Kopitar scores right off the bat, and Jordan Staal answers, once again the Pens answer a goal right away.

I was actually kinda of happy when the B's tied it up at the end of the 3rd. Then I knew the Habs were going to win. FML
