>Wednesday Night "Rivalry"
Fug. Means the game's on NBCSN. Have fun with Pierre. I sure as hell won't.
Scuderi's scratched, so he's not gonna fuck things up for anyone tonight. Toews is okay from last night after leaving during OT.
Coverage starts at 7:00PM CST. Let the shitflinging commence.
>Huge Chicago Bulls fan
>Not knowing shit about ice hockey
>Watched last season's finals tho
I really, really want to support Chicago's teams, but I don't want to jump on the bandwagon in case it looks I do it because they won tbqh
Come along anyways. You aren't really a bandwagoner if you like the sport and then switch teams. You're getting hockey and its the other team in the UC. It makes total sense.
Besides we have the best gamethreads on /sp/ so you're in good company friend
if you were an american from the east/west coast maybe i would give you some shit but you're a euro getting into a new sport. it's great you're even remotely interested. have fun and ask anything.
If you are ever in the Philippines. Drink a beer called 'Red Horse'. It costs barely over 70pesos (about $1.10 american) and has a weight of 7%.
Be prepared for the locals to try and trick you into eating weird delicacies like chicken foot in the arroz caldo and BBQ'd pig intestines.
Also the girls love BSAs or at least pretend to so you tip them more or buy more.
Penguins suck, and so does Sidney in glory holes.
Hey bro just make sure you're watching a Chicago stream and not a Shittsburg stream. Their shit is BORING. They turn the crowd volume down. I swear all of our goals last night was them saying: "Yep, that's a goal." in monotone. Fucking pitiful.
As >>64727735 said try to get CSN Chicago streams/feeds when you watch Hawk games, have plenty of booze handy and get ready for the liver failure/underachieving power play/rampant car commercials/yelling at Tracy Meyers.
>Calling your wife a cunt because she wouldn't have a threesome with you and a Thai hooker.
LOVING EVERY LAUGH
Oh it's not even bantz at that point. That's just straight up shameless bullshit. No crowd noise or shouting SCARRRRRRRRRRRRRR for Chicago goals, but they will play those fucking retarded Pong honks over and over and fucking over again. Shittsburg is a large puddle of a homeless man's urine.
I'm just a bitter person full of venom because the bitch told me when she was drunk she had a drunken threesome with her bestfriend and her friend's boyfriend in university.
I'd drink but that only amplifies the RAGE.
NHL imo. I hate monkeydunk.
pic related for anyone that needs to save it
I've seen a player stopping the puck in the air with his hand. Is that a thing? Can a player just catch the puck in the air? (I feel like a woman asking what offside means, but that was strange)
Yes, as long as they dont close their hand over the puck or pass it to someone else.
I'd rather answer actual hockey questions than argue about food and tripfags for the millionth time.
Only if he drops is down immediately. No hand passes allowed.
Nor is webm related allowed.
All these streams have massive amounts of bullshit attached to them.
You know what, fuck this shit, i'm fucking done.
I'm going to bed.
Good luck, hawks.
name one good thing about Pittsburgh...wait for it, wait for it, lousy weather, nasty food, dirty streets, fugly people, terrible place to live or raise children.
>That one faggot from Pittsburg that gets anally butt-ravaged every time someone says what his city is---a fucking shit hole full or arrogant cunts.
We're happy to actually answer questions as >>64728234 said. Some threads we have some really strange divergent topics like the Arizona game last week. That was a really strange night
Majority of the 2nd period was everyone talking about themselves and their fears/regrets.
Weirdest part was Crawford didn't allow a goal that period. We stopped in period 3 and Crawford almost shit the bed
we established that 2d > 3d once and for all
>tfw the kongs will win the cup and have a better dynasty than >us
Smells good. I like the excitement.
The Chicago streams are good because Pat Foley and Eddie Olczyk are GOAT announcers. They are not Boring and seem at most, unprofessional but it makes they game even better to watch.
Sometimes I think they are buzzed or even drunk during the games.
Also, this thread has good pat Foley drinking games
>Hockey thread becomes feels thread
>Weirdest part was Crawford didn't allow a goal that period
Is he that bad?
2d > 3d, I agree
Taking notes, I look forward to watching a Chicago stream
He's not bad he's just maddening at times. He'll make ridiculous saves and then let a bouncing puck in the goal, like he did against Arizona.
It was a perfect encapsulation of why Crawford makes us scream
that is literally every goalie
There is hybrid icing as well which was put in to stop dangerous races for the puck resulting in injuries [spoiler]The hybrid-icing system allows the linesman to blow the play dead and call an automatic icing if he determines that the puck will cross the goal line and the defending player is not behind in the race to the end-zone faceoff dots in his defensive zone[/spoiler]
No problem dude, keep asking.
PP = Power play. When the opponents' team get a minor menalty they sit in the box for 2 minutes. That 2 minutes is referred to as a power play, because there are only 4 of their team on the ice and you have 5 or "Full-strength". Alternatively PK is Power play kill, which you are the 4-man team and you're attempting to hold them from getting a goal when they have a PP. If they score a point, the PP is ended no matter how long they have left in the penalty box.
Basically this, but the shorthanded team during a penalty can clear the puck without getting called for it.
Refs can also call it early if a defender appears to be beating the chasing offensive player to the puck.
Thanks for explaining the hybrid icing and the thing about the shorthanded team as well
>If they score a point, the PP is ended no matter how long they have left in the penalty box.
What just happened, I guess
Thanks to everyone, this thread is really fucking comfy
I feel like we're quite well-mannered.
chicago has the worst most diarrhea inducing pizza in america.
No, my friend. I am a silent guardian. I am a mediator, keeping the peace between humanity and the skeleton army. I keep the balance, so that you may live free.
I am Skeleton Man.
oh hey shitsburgh
fat Ben's career literally ends Saturday night
Highway to see some sexy women and cars?
or to leave this shitty as planet?
>tfw all the fatties are going to the gym and crowding it up because it's their new years resolution
Oh well, should only be another 6 or 7 days before they give up. Props for trying, but 99% of them quit. It happens every year.
I haven't gone to the gym this week because of that. Last saturday wasn't bad though.
>TFW you see the fat dude standing in front of the mirror throwing punches with dumbbells.
>free weights never racked
>more selfies then reps
>sweat patches never attended too
>machines seldom used correctly
>waiting what feels like years for the bench to be free
Fuck every January just fuck it right off.
>You will never dunk effortlessly
more like powerless play amirite?
Normally when there's a penalty and a team has a man advantage, they call it a power play because they are in a powerful position (having an extra man on the ice). However, when the pongs have the extra man, they don't actually seem to have any advantage, rendering their power play "powerless", therefore powerless play.

Headphones are your friend
20 SCOOPS TO LEAVE HUMANITY BEHIND
Have you seen his video where he's saying he's starting a program and everyone that watches can follow along?
Literally the first thing he says is: "Okay wake up, pound some BCAA's, and inject your steroids."
Okay mother fucker.
I use headphones they just keep talking its like my own personal hell.
One year I had the guy follow me to car when I tried to leave i spent half an hour driving around aimlessly until I was sure I wasn't being followed.
I was home alone that night and I was taking a mean post workout shit and I swear to god I thought I heard "mind if i work in" from the other side of the bathroom door. Boy was I glad I was already shitting.
That's two nights in a row lone Shittsburgh fan.
Just two questions there faglord: How does it feel to get fucking butt pounded by multiple Hawks?
Next question: Are you excited to get booty blasted by the Bungles this weekend?
>more selfies then reps
That sums up my dumbass female cousin who thinks she's hot shit now that she hits the gym. (She has no choice anyway because she has no skills in life)
>Watching Klitschko-Fury with her
>Both boxers make their entrance
>"Lool anon that bald guy has no muscles, look at that ripped boxer he's gonna win!"
>speechless the rest of the fight
I hope not :(
You definitely will, Skeleton Man!
And Pittsburgh did the same fucking thing tonight and gooned it up and they had more PP's so shut the fuck up and get the fuck out.
Panarin single handedly owned your shitty team and all you could do is goon it up. Real fucking tough guys you have in Shitsburgh.
GG Pens but get used to this fuckers
Pens fan here. I avoided the thread because I had something to better to do while watching, but the game was still pretty lopsided despite the Pens being in it up until Lovejoy slipped on spaghetti at the end there. Not much good to takeaway from this one other than Fleury (and to a lesser degree Crosby) playing solid.
