Penguins vs Jokerit LIVE Updates

UPDATE: Thanks to my second favorite Fin Obelix, he is emailing us live pictures from the game...

So i'm watching a SOPCast strem off of the MyP2p.eu forums so i'll be giving live updates.

11:35 Game starts, Pesonen is on Malkins Line, can't see who is on the other wing, but Malkin is sportin the A

Staal is on the other wing i guess

11:37 - The Pens had a power play but did nothing....

Janne waiting
11:45: Fleury stops a breakaway
11:48: Malkin GOAL Pittsburgh 1 - Jokerit 0
Pittsburgh bench after the goal
12:00 - Janne Pesonen gets his first Penalty as a Penguin... can't read or understand Finnish and i'm too lazy to go over to NHL.com...

12:05 - Pens give up a huge cross ice pass from the goalie, Fleury makes back to back saves reminiscent of Game 5. Pesonen gets nice shot on goal, robbed.

12:06 - Crosby makes great pass to Fedotanko, GOAL Pittsburgh 2 - Jokerit 0

12:07 - The guy who was streaming changed the channel to Finnish Star Trek for a min... I kinda wanted him to stay there...

GOAAAAL

12:10 - End of the first Pittsburgh 2 - Jokerit 0 They interview crosby in english, all he does is praise the other team for how good they are playing... And they refer to Crosby as "The Next One," this can only mean that Janne is known as "The one" in Finland

12:27 - Second period starts, either Jokerit has a bit more hop in their step or the Pens who my live viewer said "are overpowering Jokerit" let up a bit. Anyways, Fleury has made some nice saves and Janne got in a little scuffle in front of the net...

12:32 - Pens haven't generated too much offense this period, but Fleury is making some nice saves, and Jeff Taffe looks like he has some hop in his step...

12:36 - Malkin horrid turnover, a real NHL team would have put that in the net on that chance...

12:38 - The Next One goes away on a slashing penalty

12:43 - Sabourin replaces the Flower in the net...

It's defiantly a pens crowd

12:54: End of 2nd Period, Pittsburgh 2 - Jokerit 0 Jokerit kept up a bit more in that period, but was not able to drain it, Hoping to see Janne score just to see if they play Pelimies... Also with Janne getting this look on a top line like this really leads me to believe they will keep him around...

1:09 - My feed is down, so no idea when it will et back up so i can report what's going on, will probably get updates and pictures from Obelix, so that might be it for now...

1:23 - Jokerit scores on a Penalty Shot... Pittsburgh 2 - Jokerit 1

1:32 - Kennedy goal, Assist goes to Janne "The One" Pesonen Pittsburgh 3 - Jokerit 1


1:55 - Game over, Janne ended up with 1 assist and +1, A special thanks goes out to our 2nd Favorite Fin, Obelix, now we must play the waiting game for Janne... Dupuis got the last goal i believe... Pittsburgh 4 - Jokerit 1

Janne doesn't sleep... He waits

Thanks for putting this up. The live blog on the Pens' site is so damn slow to update.
