Liveblog: Penguins romp, Senators even series

Boston Bruins v Carolina Hurricanes

A ridiculous 10-3 game in Philadelphia featured seven power-play goals – four by the Penguins, who chased Ilya Bryzgalov and scored five unanswered goals in the second period to take control of Game 4.
The Penguins avoid an ignominious sweep and head home for Game 5 on Friday.
In Ottawa, a 2-2 goaltender’s duel between Henrik Lundqvist and Craig Anderson ended with Kyle Turris’s spectacular wrister 2:42 into overtime.

    I’m predicting a baker’s dozen for the Penguins tonight.

  2. Chuck says:

    Usually when you pull your crummy goalie you don’t replace him with someone worse.

    galley still going on with his mancrush on Karlsson..oooh his young pink lungs…ok i made up the pink part..but you get the zest of it

  4. shootdapuck says:

    Hey Boone, the crowds’ chanting for DanielF is not Bob’s only dim view!

    His dim view started 3 games ago!

  5. Mattyleg says:

    Doesn’t look like the Penguins are missing Aaron Asham.

    so i saw a documentary a few years ago and they said Bob is an odd little man who does the games with his pants undone…thought you all might like to know that..oh and Mark Recci is not ugly…

    • smiler2729 says:

      Mark Recchi, Mike Ricci, Joe Reekie…
      Brian Bellows, Stephane Yelle, Kevin Haller…

    Phili can still come back. Thats how bad Fleury is

  11. youngwun says:

    Sources do confirm that Roy has already reached verbal agreement with Molson and is already looking for his assistants.

  12. smiler2729 says:

    Why the hate on Bob Cole?

    He still calls a great game so what if he doesn’t call the players by name, it’s TV, man, we can see for ourselves.

    The guy is HNIC, the last of the greats and he stills ramps up the excitement.

    I’d like to see you all doing this in your 70s

    • Stormin says:

      He is bad man I am sorry
      Is Bob Cole really ever at any games anymore time to retire good for a few laughs every game though

      The other night goalie made glove save on a breakaway, and Cole blurted did he get a piece of that or did it just go high over the net and glass. The puck was in the Goalies glove as he dropped it to his D man

        Yeah I know but come on, he’s the last of great HNIC play-by-play guys, Jim Hughson’s awful and Mark Lee and Dean Brown (“winds, fires”) suck worse…

        I miss Don Wittman.

    “The HIO Decision Desk has redirected live-blog to the Ottawa-Rangers game for their third period.”

    Dave Hodge just threw his pencil in the air again.

    what the hell are these fools booing now….

  15. thorandresson says:

    So are we to expect a Draft Day and Free Agent blog from Boone too?

  16. Stormin says:

    Ok my top 5 hard to look at NHLers of all time
    1- Mike Ricci
    2- Gino Odjick
    3-Ken Danyeko
    4-Tim Hunter
    5- a former hab Lyle Odelein

    I am watching this report on the NY Rangers. The Americans know how do sports.

  19. shootdapuck says:

    Is Bob Cole even at the game?

    His commentary makes you wonder.

  21. shootdapuck says:

    Mike Ricci has the all ugly MVP by a mile.

    Don’t forget Jim Roberts involvement with Tuuk skate blades!

  22. EricInStL says:

    So why is Laviolette a jerk ?

    • smiler2729 says:

      Just look at ‘im, he’s textbook, did you watch any of the 24/7 thing?

  24. ari says:

    very good idea

  25. gmur says:

    If you remove the asinine actions of players after whistles and the odd thuggery during the game, this has been great offensive hockey played during this series. Unfortunately, too many idiots trying reciprocate NHL hockey from the 70s. Just play the friggin game.

    Suspend Rinaldo for the rest of the series… If you do it to Asham, do it to Rinaldo. Rid the teams of knuckle-scrapers…

    • Chuck says:

      It hasn’t been great offense. It’s been horrible defense and goaltending.

    Put lauren hart in net I say..

  27. HardHabits says:

    It is patently clear that the NHL is fixing games via officiating. This is corruption and collusion of the highest order and it is endemic of the Bettman era.

    It’s not wonder Chris Lee is moving up the ranks. And I do mean rank.

  28. habsfan0 says:

    Fleury’s getting hot. Hasn’t given up a goal this period.

  29. punkster says:

    More cheap shots coming.

    ***Subbang Baby!!!***

  30. Timo says:

    Now I am just curious if this will get to double digits.

  31. 24moreCups says:

    Wow 9-3, didn’t expect to see that.

  32. ZepFan2 says:

    Who gets number 10?

    9-3 and it begins….what took them so long

  34. jedimyrmidon says:

    No self-control by Rinaldo.

  35. habsfan0 says:

    Boone called Flyers’ GM Paul Holmgren a genius.

    Maybe,but not when it comes to goalies.

  36. Timo says:

    Wow, talk about neither team understanding a concept of defense. Told ya, a snooze fest.

  37. Habsolutely says:

    that Rinaldo is a real piece of work.

  38. Stormin says:

    My over under of 18 i posted earlier as a joke looks pretty accurate now

  39. HardHabits says:

    Neither of these two teams would be able to compete with The System™. Time to bring back Jacques Martin.

    *ducks*

  40. mrhabby says:

    Ronaldo. Such an idiot.

  41. Habsolutely says:

    geez guys, save some goals for the next three games.

  42. BeachHabFan says:

    Chris Lee as “The Controller” was a masterful stroke to turn this into a passionless, stunted, special teams marathon. Kudos to Senor Bettman for destroying an entertaining series with such authority, perhaps we put him on the North Korea file next.

  43. twilighthours says:

    Beauty! Drunk flyer fan flipping off staal after his Hattie goal.

  44. The Dude says:

    Lol….fan giving Staal the bird!

  45. Habifax says:

    Jimmy Roberts Mr Clutch in the playoffs

  46. Habitant in Surrey says:

    …7-3 Flightless Ones half-way through the second ??? …incroyable !!!
    …well, I guess I will actually turn on My TV to watch
    ……I know ! …I’m nuts :)
    …but, aren’t We all ?

    Edit: AND, I miss an EIGHTH by wasting My time typing a comment no one cares about …I’m nuttier than I thought :(

  47. habsfan0 says:

    I’m no expert, but I don’t think the Conn Smythe trophy winner this year will be a Flyers or Penguins goalie.

  48. Mavid says:

    ottawa fans chanting someting..not sure what it is..highway? byway..frito lays? its not leafs suck, I think they realize now they are playing the rangers now

  49. shootdapuck says:

    Mission accomplished for the NHL they have managed the officiating sufficiently to ensure the series will not end in a sweep!

    Memo to Mario well done!

  50. jedimyrmidon says:

    So. Many. Goals.

  51. mrhabby says:

    Bring back parent…..

  52. punkster says:

    So what time does the gooning start?

    ***Subbang Baby!!!***

  53. Mavid says:

    ottawa ties it…galley completely loses it…

  54. mrhabby says:

    Lmao…crazy..

  55. Mavid says:

    are you kidding me? they actually have shirts that say “guess what we don’t like you either” just another reason to pray for the flyers to lose

  56. novahab says:

    Way to go Halifax great come back. On the other hand Roy’s mind may not have been in this series. They will introduce both GM and Roy as coach toghter at the start of the second round of the playoffs. Hey Flyers your the next team to blow a 3-O lead.

  57. frontenac1 says:

    Yes Stormin,Roberts was a defensive specialist. I think it was Bowman who said “He is built like a mooring post for a battleship”

  58. ont fan says:

    The Flyers must be terrified anytime the puck is in their end. How can a team have so much bad luck in net for so many years? It’s only place they can’t get it right.

  59. habsfan0 says:

    Exciting game.

    Still would like to see Lauren Hart on ice again.

  60. mrhabby says:

    Has to be some of the worst gkeeping I have seen or some of the best finish…sitting back lovin it.

  61. joshbenn says:

    Who here hates letang as much as I do?

  62. Mavid says:

    ottawa scores and galley just about wets himself..and they complain about Bob…

  63. Stormin says:

    Refs have been told to call everything, even if you high stick yourself your going to the box

  66. habsfan0 says:

    This is starting to resemble a Steelers Eagles game.

    The Flyers sure know how to pick their goalies.

  67. Habsolutely says:

    Sweet pass by Sid, and a sweet wrister by Letang.

  68. Kimberly2u says:

    I’m surprised there are no fights yet

  69. mrhabby says:

    Could care less about the penalties….the offense is just tremendous.

  70. punkster says:

    Missed the first period.

    Seems to me either Price OR Halak would be better than these two stiffs.

    You can take both these teams out of a cup hunt with keepers like this. Pffft.

    ***Subbang Baby!!!***

  71. Mavid says:

    oh and checking in on the blog

  72. Mavid says:

    watching rangers/sens..streaming pens/flyers…taping american idol..and doing some work I brought home…i can multitask

  73. jedimyrmidon says:

    Why is Chris Lee in charge of the Pitts-Philly series? That guy loses control of regular season games… Way to go NHL.

    And Tim Peel is also an official in the playoffs…

    • Lizardking89 says:

      When I saw that Lee reffing in the playoffs I just shook my head in disbelief. This tool is either so incompetent or he’s on the take. That Peel douche is another winner.

  74. matt jordan says:

    The way the playoffs have gone this year, I hope the Canadiens sign a few more fourth liners and goons, and when Shanahan and Bettman lose control again, the Habs can win the battle of attrition (literally).

    Not that I like goon hockey, but the NHL does not call plays by the rules and does not suspend players effectively.
    $2500 fine for Weber?
    One game for James Neal?!
    Brad Marchand and Ryan Kesler OBVIOUSLY diving and no calls on the ice or no warnings from the incompetant and inept league.

    The Habs need players who can give brutal cheap shots and won’t be missed on the ice. The dinosaurs in charge at the NHL’s head office are not going to change, so I say if you can’t beat them, join them.

  75. habsfan0 says:

    The Flyers/Penguins need Halak in goal.
