Nice color-coded updates Tom, good job.
All this talk of how the Pens would come out mad at the Isles, but where was the Isles anger at how they played against New Jersey?
Aside from the final ten minutes and ot, Isles did not play very inspired hockey. They did not get much help from the officials but did not work to make Pittsburgh take penalties and only seemed to get some chances shorthanded. Most of the goals were off individual efforts or rebounds, they could not set up one play where they had an open net for the winner against the reeling Pens at the end of the game?
Fluery played great at the end to keep the Isles from two points, but the Isles did not even deserve one the way they worked for most of the game. Stirling's reaction during the time-out about says it all for this one.
Beautiful rush by Blake for his goal. Czerkawski and Kvasha had the best setup for a goal. Yashin had a nice rebound for his goal.
Players who did not seem to show up for Pittsburgh: Parrish, Wiemer, Asham, Niinimaa, Aucoin.
