I’ll be honest, I don’t even know where to begin. So much happened yesterday that it was nearly impossible to turn all of it into coherent blog posts. The Penguins' suspendable acts, Chris Therien’s rant, and Sidney Crosby’s abhorableness (word?) were easy enough. But the rest? No idea.

So here you go, Philadelphia– a roundup of the best nonsense, Photoshops, quotes and other assorted highlights from yesterday’s Game 3:

– First off, CSN will re-broadcast Game 3 today at 12:30 p.m.

– The back page of today’s Daily News:

– This is (or was) Evgeni Malkin’s phone number:

Some folks reported getting a full voicemail box last night. This morning, Verizon says the number has been changed or disconnected. Well done, Flyers fans. 

– Our favorite (and perhaps the only) partially-cloaked Penguins fan showed up in Philadelphia, and was excellently jobbed by the guy behind her, which I’m guessing is nothing new:

I’ve got to admit– I respect her balls in coming to Philly, alone.

The standout star came on Postgame Live, when Michael Barkann sent it over to Coatsey at Xfinity Live! (lives!), which was predictably insane. Amazingly, they got out of this without a four-letter word making it on-air. Perhaps the best (or worst) parenting you will ever see:

Yeah, the mother got her daughter’s age wrong.

– Mario Lemieux dined at Capital Grille on Saturday.

Great article about Brendan Shanahan completely failing to gain control of the playoffs.

– An ad searching for the Penguins' defense on Craigslist.

ThePensblog.com podcast is enjoyable, recorded following yesterday’s game.

– Yinzers even hate their team. Dean Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

Within a couple hours of maybe the most pathetic playoff performance in Penguins history, the sloppy, senseless and stupid-beyond-words 8-4 loss to the Flyers in Game 3 on Sunday, the tattered remains of this team boarded an aircraft for Pittsburgh. That`s where they`re set to practice the next two days, then return here for Game 4.

Do us a favor, gentlemen: Don`t come back.

No, I mean it.

Just fold the sweaters like you`ve folded mentally in these Stanley Cup playoffs. Pack up like you`ve packed it in, and head off to Moose Jaw or Magnitogorsk for the summer.

But don`t come back here.


– And a fan goes off on his favorite team

The way in which to Penguins conducted themselves in Philadelphia on Sunday validates every criticism that members of media and other fanbases have espoused in the post lockout era. We have been called entitled, spoiled & arrogant. Those critiques were turned into indisputable facts with our absolute lack of discipline, class and professionalism. We fell behind in a game with massive importance to our post season and instead of acting like professionals we looked more like a John Stevens coached Flyers team that saw Mike Richards take runs at Marc-Andre Fleury and Scott Hartnell biting the finger of Kris Letang as the 09-10 campaign began. The role reversal is now complete. We are what we hated so much about them.


– TSN put together a great piece on #hartnelldown.

– Our friend Christie (@Squiggg) sitting behind the Penguins' penalty box:

A pervy NBC cameraman found her and spent some time melon-focusing during a commercial break.



– TSN got the crowd as Hulk Hogan showed up the big screen:



– Dan Bylsma and his gorgeous glasses think the series is going seven

"I know Marc-Andre Fleury will be the guy in the net in our next four games."


– Bryz doesn’t think anything:

Q: Did you expect the series to go this way?

"It's a difficult question. Like I ask you before guys, don't ask me difficult questions, because I can't answer it."


Finally, speaking of Bryz, remember his Tweet from Saturday night? Well, reader Robert passes along a slightly modified version of the .GIF:


Yeah, that feels nice.

Here’s all of this weekend’s coverage, if you missed it…

Examining why Sidney Crosby is such a bitch.

These Penguins players should be suspended.

Hulk Hogan video played at the Wells Fargo Center.

Chris Therien goes off on Sidney Crosby. Twice.

Bryz would like you to know that he is no longer afraid of bears.

  1. Sid the p*ssy has got to relize, you do not come into our house pulling those shenanigans & not expect to get your a$$ kicked. Wed night someone needs to KO that mutha f*cker & put an end to his career.
    – On another note, I can’t get over all the p*ssy down there yesterday.

  2. Got a feelin that princess sass bikini pic was quite some time ago, get a pedicure bitch and get rid of those winter toes! With that backdrop she’s a 3 in philly.

  3. i have access to Lemieux’s personal e-mail address. question is, do i risk getting fired by posting it? at this point messing with him would be beating a (nearly) dead horse anyway

  4. Crosby reminds me of a Tiger Woods….immense talent, initially loved by the public, lots of accomplishments, but acts like a petulant brat. People are starting to notice. His public goodwill is fading fast, and his downfall is coming very soon.

  5. Did anyone else see Kris Letang try to SHH the crowd (after fighting Timmonen of all people lol) like Max Talbot did to us a few years ago…
    Yea…didnt work Kris….

  6. Kyle, I gotta tell you, you’re doing an awesome job at covering this. From fan signs, to articles, to videos, and write-ups. Great job on all of this.
    And, of course, let’s go Flyers!

  7. @troll(I guess you could call me a hater) – Fake or real….who cares, Christie’s melons look fantastic and she is smoking hot to boot.

  8. Really? Really? Really Really? WOW ok i guess i should not be shocked to say the least that some of you Cryer fans have sunk a all time low. To have someone display a phone number and harass them is quit pathetic, and shows some have no life what so ever. Ok so i know your jealous we got the 2 best hockey players right now, but i had a chuckle cause each thing i read only proves what all of us been saying about you Filthadelphia cryers. I’ll leave you with wondering that one. It’s hockey people come on there is always someone starting shit on the ice. Do you think it is a shocker for us to see Sidney get pissed? Not at all,and i am glad he did he has had alot of shit for far so long it’s no wonder. Oh but wait! The guy who knocked him down, and into the boards and gave him a Concussion that was ok? Course i know that answer from most cryer fans. Most people are hypocrite”s in the whole NHL league. Enjoy while you can, cause it sure won’t be lasting long.

  9. @Tiffaney
    I’m going to give you the benefit of the doubt here and assume that you are trying to do the noble thing and stand up for your team and its players. I get that.
    Let me clear something up for you. Any REAL hockey fan DOES NOT want to see any star player out of the league because of a concussion. I don’t care who it is – including Crosby. I don’t like him, but I was glad to see him come back. You never want to see a young gifted athlete struck down in his prime because of a dangerous, stupid hit.
    Any REAL Flyers fan also won’t be happy about it considering that we have watched not one, not two, but THREE of our Captians in the last 15 years get their careers cut short because of that injury. So please save your comments for other fan bases, sites and trolls.
    As far as jealous of Pittsburgh having the two best players? Save it. Not jealous at all. We’re pretty happy with the young team we have that sticks up for each other as opposed to having a Captian who loses his temper, pulls school yard tactics, then hides behind teammates and refs when it gets real. And considering that a few PEns are getting suspended for dangerous, stupid hits like the one Neal put on Sean Couturier, you have NO ROOM TO TALK. It must be difficult for the Pens watch a very skilled, defensive minded, 19 YEAR OLD stifle the MVP.
    A very large percentage of Pittsburgh fans and media were EMBARRASSED by what happened on Sunday. I’m sorry you can’t take your black and yellow glasses off to see what really went on. I can see that you are having a ball trolling this site and every article, spewing your hatred toward the Flyers and their fans. I would offer this, as a Pens fan you need to take a step back a realize that for once, the Pittsburgh Penguins are not the adored, angelic team that the League has made them out to be. As a female hockey fan, you are embarrassing all of those who also have a uterus. You are making an ass of yourself on here and if I showed your comments to a lot of the Pens fans I know, they would be ashamed to have you on their side.
    Let’s Go Flyers!!!
