Cole's Plus/Minus: Pen(alties) vs. Devils - 2 big points lost
 
Plus

+ Bort/Engo: They are bringing the physical/grit/mean atmosphere to this team. Big hits, being aggressive, and getting in people's faces is what they do. It's so enjoyable to watch these guys do what they do. It's definitely affecting everyone else in the line up as they start playing with the same passion/grit.


+ Reese: Can't complain about what he did today. He looks good as a #8 who comes in when we need help. I think he made Pittsburgh proud with his game. If it weren't for his keep in the first period, we don't get a goal.


Minus

- Refs: I never complain about the refs but this was a ****ing joke. Two joke penalties for clean hits, phantom icings, and some clear as day interference calls right in front of the ref w/ no calls. It makes no sense. One of the worst officiated games I've seen in years.

- Geno's Anger: He needs to stop hurting the team with immature penalties. We are going on the powerplay and instantly we get back to 4 on 4. He was battling Green the entire game. It was a good 1 on 1 battle the entire game. He can't let that happen.

- Flow of the game: With penalties, phantom icing calls, etc. the flow was really hurt. The lines couldn't run through normally and it felt like it really took away from a good game.

- Stat Keeper: There were probably 2 million hits in this game and the stats kept showing like 4-5. What are you watching?

- Penalties: We don't need to go into it.

I don't wanna talk about this game.

billybudd 02-09-2013 03:39 PM

Too many penalties. There's nothing else really to say about this game.

Alesle 02-09-2013 03:40 PM

I hate complaining about the refs, but wow they were horrendous tonight.

Pitt's Best #87 #66 02-09-2013 03:40 PM

+ Despres

Our young defensemen are playing more important minutes now that Letang/Niskanen are injured and boy have they played well.

TheSniper26 02-09-2013 03:40 PM

I like Bortuzzo. I like his ability to get under the other team's skin in particular. That's about it.

Coach John McGuirk 02-09-2013 03:41 PM

The refs were bad, but our team discipline was just as bad.

fragmag 02-09-2013 03:41 PM

Anyways, tough loss.

+ Flower, I thought MAF had a good game, just too many PP's for them.
+ Engo
+ Bort

- No offense really
-----refs, come one, I mean really? those boarding calls on Vitale were terrible.

Giskard 02-09-2013 03:41 PM

- Penalties: this wasn't a hockey game, I don't even know what it was
+ Tomorrow: reset and start again (with different refs ..)

AquaticBirdman 02-09-2013 03:42 PM

The refs really, really, really killed this game tonight. Plain and simple. I'm not going to forgive our guys for the occasional undisciplined, boneheaded penalty...but wow lol

Maybe I missed someone getting a stick on the puck at center ice or a penguin clipping the puck after it exited the zone, but it sure seemed to me that an icing near the end went uncalled because there were 5 pens and 4 devils on the ice. Thing is, it was 4 on 4 plus the extra attacker for the goalie being out. Shoulda been icing.

WarriorScholar 02-09-2013 03:42 PM

+ no injuries. Thought for sure this frustrating game would leave us even more frustrated with an injury to a top player.

+ no jersey Cartoon Network announcing tomorrow night.

Big McLargehuge 02-09-2013 03:42 PM

+ Bort
+ Fleury looked good, can't blame him for any of the goals

- Everything else
- One of the worst reffed games I've ever seen.

edit: And I want to make it clear...a lot of those penalties were deserved, especially at the end...but way too many phantom calls, too many calls only being called one way, the linesmen seemed to have no clue what the rules of icing are, and then by the end the 'everything must be called' ******** wound up helping decide the game. The refs had way too big of a hand in this game and it was that way from the start. Hockey is meant to be played, not stopped every time someone gets a stick within their personal bubble.

bathroomSTAAL 02-09-2013 03:43 PM

Anyway, everyone chill the **** out, it was a joke game and we came in today at the top of the conference. People saying that our 5 game winning streak was just because the other teams sucked..give me a break.

AquaticBirdman 02-09-2013 03:43 PM

If I have any hope for tomorrow it's that tomorrow's refs would have seen the abomination that was today's game and want to avoid being quite as bad.

Fire Shero* 02-09-2013 03:43 PM

- geno
- maf (3rd period$
- not playing against Holtby
- the Boychuk experiment has run it's course. Find a solution Shero, outside of the organization
- dumb penalties

ColePens 02-09-2013 03:44 PM

I don't know, Big. That third goal was a bit crap. He could have saved that. He still played great hockey, but that was a **** goal.

SuburbanRhythm 02-09-2013 03:44 PM

I'll post my thought in after I leave the penalty box in 2 minutes...

Pancakes 02-09-2013 03:44 PM

I don't understand how a single one of our defensemen gets a + this game. They were awful, we couldn't break out a puck to save our life.

I'd give a + to Sid, he had 6 shots and was playing spirited hockey. Fleury was great. Beyond that, I can't really think of any positives.

Reffing was not why we lost this game, anyone complaining about that is just trying to delude themselves because the Pens played an awful hockey game and deserved to lose.

Jahodac 02-09-2013 03:44 PM

- Everything

When things don't go the Pen's way, they throw a tantrum and kill any chance of getting back into the game by taking stupid penalties. It frustrates me to no end; pathetic.

the Pens certainly didn't help their cause by playing like children (especially Malkin)

66-29-33 02-09-2013 03:44 PM

**** this game, **** the refs.

billybudd 02-09-2013 03:45 PM

My worst fear is that McGeough comes out of his role as Supervisor of referees and suits up tomorrow to show his charges how to really butcher a game.

Wes C Addle 02-09-2013 03:45 PM

Hard to evaluate much about this game when you spend a period in the box (deserved or not).

Looking for an inspired effort tomorrow.

cheesedanish87 02-09-2013 03:46 PM

Sometime during the season every single team is gonna get screwed by the refs. Today was the pens day to get screwed nothing u can do about that. Saying that i still think NJ was the better team and deserved the win.
