NHL Tuesday Night Live Thread 1/19

From the Liberty Bell to Hollywood, It's A Hockey Night in America! [NHL Live Thread]

1/19/10 in NHL   |   kramer   |   11003 respect

There's 8 games on the ice this evening, and we've got your covered.  The action starts at 7:00 in Philly where the Flyers host the anemic Blue Jackets.  The #1 teams in each conference face off in different cities tonight, as the Caps play host to the Wings while the Blackhawks travel north of the border to Ottawa.  The Pens return home to Mellon Arena after a 5-game road trip to face the suddenly red-hot Islanders who are trying to win 5 in a row.  Vinny LeCavalier goes to MSG to play the Rangers, a team he's rumored to be on the trading block to go to, and a clash of the titans out west caps the night off in L.A. where the Kings host the Sharks.  Here's tonight's full lineup:

7:00 PM ET:
Columbus Blue Jackets @ Philadelphia Flyers
Toronto Maple Leafs @ Atlanta Thrashers
Tampa Bay Lightning @ New York Rangers
Detroit Red Wings @ Washington Capitals


7:30 PM ET:
Chicago Blackhawks @ Ottawa Senators
New York Islanders @ Pittsburgh Penguins

10:00 PM ET:
Buffalo Sabres @ Anaheim Ducks

10:30 PM ET:
San Jose Sharks @ Los Angeles Kings


This is your place to come and talk (or bitch) about the game(s) you're watching tonight!

Montreal is thoroughly enjoying the Killer Cam era, don't get me wrong, but lately Comme si comme ça...

He didn't steal a pass...he was facing lamo Kings defenseman Randy Jones----I can beat him to the puck...UGGHHHHH...horrible horrible game by the Kings. AND I couldn't even see Dustin Brown kick Boyle's ass in a fight because the stinkin linesman broke it up.

Curry is a decent goalie (having seen him over the past few years down here in Wilkes-Barre). Yeah, the other night wasn't pretty, and hes not Fleury, but I wouldn't throw him away just yet

Also nice to see the Pens break out of that slump. It's a long season, and I know those things will happen from time to time, but I was starting to get a little worried

The road trip was pretty decent (although they should've won that game in Minnesota), they went 3-2, and I definitely hope all Dupuis needs is a few stitches, that looked brutal.

1/19/10   |   celticfc411   |   51 respect

Also hope Dupuis' injury isn't as bad as it looked. Don't need another wave of injuries coming through

Well that was 20 minutes of root canal. Good lord, did the Kings come out in chum scented jersey. Please insert profanity laced tirade here.

With Heatley and Thornton on his line, Patty has a good chance to hold the lead all season.

3-0 now, with 2 mins left in the first.

Geno gets the empty net PP goal, 6-4 Pens, HT for Malkin, and "ladies and gentlemen, Elvis has just left the building." /Mike Lange

(Edited by kramer)

He's walking off the ice with assistance, good to see, and the Pens have a PP for the remainder of this game thanks to a 5-minute boarding major for Sutton.

1/19/10   |   kramer   |   11003 respect

Sutton just leveled Dupuis into the boards, Sutton got ejected as Dupuis went down in a little pool of blood.

1/19/10   |   kramer   |   11003 respect

Malkin scores on the power play, 3rd PP goal of the night for the Pens, and thankfully they retake the lead 5-4.

8 goals and none of them for Gaborik?  Couple that with Ovechkin going scoreless and we can count on half of the people on the goal streak to lose tonight.

4 asssists though. he was "benched" most of the third because the Rangers were running all over the Lightning. 8 goals, 8 different goal scorers

1/19/10   |   tpowell25   |   1627 respect

Decent night for the other streakers though.  Kovalchuk and Crosby with 2 goals, Jeff Carter has a goal, and both Marleau and Perry play later.

Isles tie up this game, that's typical of the way the Pens were playing prior to the 5-game road trip, can't hold a lead.

Isles get a goal early in the 3rd thanks to a sloppy Pens turnover, 4-3.

Damn the Wings hold Ovechkin without a shot and out shoot the Caps 46-23 and still lose 3-2

1/19/10   |   Eric_   |   7716 respect

Despite playing like crap for 40 minutes, the Caps pull out a 3-2 win over Detroit. Thanks to Theodore and his 44 saves.

1/19/10   |   nyrangers   |   192 respect

ahhahaha Aaron Voros!

4th line out there on the PP and they make a beautiful play

Philly leads 5-2, Jeff Carter shot it in right off the face-off for Philly's 3rd goal.

MARC STAAL, the good Staal!!!
Great feed from Dubinsky, both with 2 pts
6-2 Rainjuhs, back to back 6-goal games

Yeah Rafalski makes it 2-1 Red Wings!!!

Crosby gets it right back, 4-1 Pens!  Isles score right back again, 4-2.

1/19/10   |   kramer   |   11003 respect

Islanders score, dammit there goes the shutout.

1/19/10   |   nyrangers   |   192 respect

I hate the VERSUS guys...why do they bother talking? They don't say anything I can't figure out by watching the replay myself. They way they talk and their voice tones make them sound like such pompous jack*sses. So boring and so useless

1/19/10   |   kramer   |   11003 respect

Pens go right back to the power play, Gonchar to Crosby to Guerin, tic-tac-toe, 3-0 Pens.

1/19/10   |   kramer   |   11003 respect

Mike Yeo, the special teams coach for the Pens, is back on the bench.  He missed the road trip for health reasons and they just said his BP was spiking...well when your PP is dead last in the league, is it any wonder your blood pressure would boil?

1/19/10   |   nyrangers   |   192 respect

5-2 Rangers after 2, Rangers running all over the Lightning especially when shorthanded...2 breakaways in the same opportunity and a bunch of other chances. Took a 5 on 3 to beat Lundqvist legitametally

11 goals for the Rangers in 2 games with still a period to go...granted both defences have been awful, but hopefully their scoring drought is done

1/19/10   |   kteacher   |   33973 respect

Go Kings! I want to see another win tonight.

1/19/10   |   kramer   |   11003 respect

Pens cough it up again and Johnson makes another huge save, but Okposo will get a penalty shot...denied for a 3rd time!

1/19/10   |   kramer   |   11003 respect

GENO!  Malkin on the PP!  That's the first goal the Pens have scored 5-on-3 this year, and they have a long PP still to work with.

1/19/10   |   kramer   |   11003 respect

Pens coughed it up on the PP and Johnson made an incredible save, then the Isles had too many men on the ice, 5-on-3 for a short time.

1/19/10   |   tpowell25   |   1627 respect

For those interested streakers out there, Kovalchuk has a goal.

Thrashers are down 2-1 right now.  Since the Leafs and Thrashers both have such wonderful defenses, I expect this game to finish with double-digit goals

1/19/10   |   kramer   |   11003 respect

Crosby gets the rebound and puts it behind the sprawled out Roloson with about 1:20 to go in the first period, 1-0 Pens.

1/19/10   |   kramer   |   11003 respect

Both teams have failed to score on the PP so far.

1/19/10   |   nyrangers   |   192 respect

Not sure how a goalie interference call wasn't made on Tampa's only goal thus far...the guy fell into Lundqvist (was bumped a little) but grabbed him as he fell, then layed down in the net/crease inhibiting Lundqvist's ability to play the puck...then the puck was banked in from behind the net by Lecaviler off a Ranger defender...

3-1 Rangers after one no less (Dubinsky (PP), Prospal, Drury)

1/19/10   |   kramer   |   11003 respect

Roloson didn't play the puck when the ref told him to, he was way out of the net freezing it and gets a penalty for it.

1/19/10   |   kramer   |   11003 respect

Brent Johnson is able to play tonight, THANK GOD!  I don't want to see Curry again this year.
