Gordon Will Be A Game Time Decision

Center Boyd Gordon, who has missed the past three games with back spasms, will be a game-time decision tonight against the Pens.

If Gordon does play, it would be a huge boost for the Caps, who are looking to end a three-game losing streak.

The penalty kill has been less-than-impressive without Gordon. He's also crucial in the face-off circle and on the checking line, which, of course, will be chasing Sidney Crosby all over the Verizon Center ice.

Speaking of Crosby, even if you can't stand him, do yourself a favor and find some video of his shootout goal from last night. (The Pens defeated the Hurricanes, 4-3, in a shootout at Mellon Arena.) Poor, poor Cam Ward. He didn't have a chance.

Also, Olie Kolzig will be in net for the Caps.

The shootout goal was awesome. It really was a thing of beauty. Our guys should watch it over and over because the Caps never do anything like that in a shootout. It was obviously practiced. Which reminds me, have they been practicing for the shootout this year, Tarik? I dont buy that "you can't practice for it" crap. Its a set of moves, pressure aside. If you can practice a musical instrument before playing in front of thousands of people, you can practice a set of moves for a shootout.

Tarik,

After watching Motzko Thursday, why is he on the power play? Especially on point. I saw him wiff on the puck 4 different times, and Hanlon is talking about how improtant the shot from the point is.

This is a big game for the Caps even though it is early in the season. Yea, I wonder how many Penguin fans will be there tonight. They will probably be louder than the Cap fans. Don't let that happen people.

I'm sure, as usual, Cindy Crosbytch will whine to the refs and get the calls going the Pens way. Maria set that precedence in the past, the refs bowed to it, and Cindy is continuing it. Except that this time, if you recall from seeing the Pens last year, either vs the Caps or when they were in the playoffs, there are several more whiners on the team. It's sickening to watch.

Unfortunately, it's tough for our boys to beat them. Especially the way things have been going lately, I don't hold much hope again tonight. I fear it will be another disappointment. But, who knows? Maybe Brash will be on the PP and net himself a couple of goals, eh? :) GO CAPS!

PENS FANS WILL BE OUT IN HUGE NUMBERS TONIGHT! DON"T FORGET TO BRING YOUR TOWELS FOR CRYING AFTER THE GAME CAPS FANS!

BOYD GORDON COULD NEVER STOP MALKING/CROSBY/OR STAAL, SO QUIT WHINING ABOUT A NOBODY.

PENS WILL WIN THIS GAME 6-0, SO YOU DON"T HAVE TO PRACTICE YOUR SHOOT-OUT SKILLS - DON'T WORRY!!!

HAAHAAHHAAA!!!!!

I am stunned that Pens fans can even afford a computer

Just because he can afford it, doesn't mean he knows how to use spellcheck.

It's Malkin...not Malking, you tool.
