That's a really good graphic design in the OP.

Tomorrow's going to be a tough one. Boston's no doubt wanting to rebound from that blown lead to the Pens on Tuesday. At least Boston also played today, so we're not the only one on playing back to back.

Ugene Malkin 03-16-2013 06:04 PM

Very nicely done, Fredrick.:yo: Awesome work.

cheesedanish87 03-16-2013 06:11 PM

Cant believe were 15th in goals against seems allot worse. Hopefully Geno will be back for this one

MetalheadPenguinsFan 03-16-2013 07:18 PM

Need to play a full 60 mins. for this one.

Shrimper 03-16-2013 07:19 PM

Think the streak will end here but I'd like to see Crosby have a big game regardless. He's due a goal.

Random Oracle 03-16-2013 07:21 PM

Has Malkin been ruled out for tomorrow?

not officially, but it's only one week since the injury and Bylsma said 1-2 weeks. I would be surprised if he plays.

ColePens 03-16-2013 07:32 PM

Really loving the GDT, FS. You using straight photoshop? Did you buy it or using a trial?

Not yet DB was asked on Friday if Geno could play this weekend and he said Geno was out for Saturday's game. He was asked again this morning if Geno could play Sunday and he said I dunno. Just going by DB comments sounds like theirs a chance he could play.

I'm using GIMP to cut out the players. Everything else works with Photoscape.

Thanks for the info. Hoping he'd play tomorrow, but no need to rush him. Better safe than sorry at this point.

nice GDT! Also would love a big game from Sid as well as a win!

Axman 03-16-2013 08:43 PM

I'd also like to say great work Frederick. This game worries me; we've been kicking butt for so long it seems that we're due to get ours kicked.
Maybe I'm just being pessimistic. What do I know? :laugh:
The Pens confidence must be sky-high after 8 in a row. LGP!

Le Magnifique 66 03-16-2013 08:57 PM

Nice GDT

Sucks but going to be missing this one! :(

Go :pens

So how badly does this board freak out if we lose tomorrow?

Apocalypse style if it happens with Despres scratched. Wait, that'll be just me :).

namsnoodle 03-16-2013 11:47 PM

Lets go Pens!

Darth Vitale 03-16-2013 11:50 PM

Doubting Geno gets the nod tomorrow. Coming off a shoulder injury they'll probably let him sit out for a potential bash-fest with the Bruins.

Well, I can admit that I would join you in that one.

ColePens 03-16-2013 11:52 PM

You know.... I'm okay either way. 8 in a row is damn good. If we lose to the team we snuck one out against, oh well. What I'd love to see is OT.

Boston is winning the East. To me it's pretty easy to see. They have 3 games at hand and only 1 point down. They are also the most complete team right now in the east. So I'm expecting them to walk away with #1. I just want points to hold on to #2.

Agreed on all counts. What's your take on our recent play in terms of the breakout / system, compared to earlier in the season?

Baby steps. Baby steps. It's not full-time yet, but when our defense activate we are a whole new team. I've seen an F3 here and there, too. I don't know what's being preached because it's not consistent the entire game. I just pray our defense continues to pinch in w/ the comfort of our F3 being high and supporting. It makes us so dangerous. We control the puck forever.

Our d-zone is still a freaking mess. I hate it. We have a guy stand in front of the net - that doesn't pick up any 1 player - but stands there to protect it and stare at the play. What the **** is it for? A puck will beat that player every time. We've been lucky that open players haven't scored but they are still open. I see the defense being more aggressive, but i still HATE that guy who stands in front of the net for no reason. Pick someone up and stay with 'em.

Case and point - Sid had to make a RIDICULOUS play on JVR who was wide open in front for no reason. We had a guy standing on the strong side of the net just staring into space.

Breakout is getting a little better, too. The less stretch passing we do the better. Why? Because it actually opens the stretch later in the game. :laugh: If we can continue to wheel back and come in for that short chip, I will like it.

The true test is Boston and NJ. We beat Boston by playing a 2-3 basically the 2nd/3rd and RELENTLESSLY attacked. Do we do the same in a 1-1 game? 0-0 game? I doubt it. For some reason Bylsma waits to send that urgency. And until I see them react to NJ differently, I'm not sold we can do it in the postseason.

Interesting stuff on the other points; still trying to recognize bits and pieces of the system stuff (I need the official Cole Pens practice board and dry erase marker set!)... but the point you make above is exactly what I've been noticing. Glad to hear you say it as it confirms my suspicions. I think this is part of the reason Orpik is getting abused so much, as he seems to be "that guy" a lot of the time, just standing around waiting for someone to draw him away from the net so he can get burned.

Not much at all unless it's a sleep walk loss
