Good team effort for two periods, especially when they were playing all four lines...Especially the defensive effort by both the forwards and D...However, the Penns took over in the 3rd period when they physically manhandled our top 3 lines and the D..Face it, we are just a bit too small and our main players lack the needed physical aggressiveness.....Now and in the POs, we have to make up for that in smarts and tenacity which unfortunately isnt always there like in the third.. (see Dubi and Avery for the lack of smarts and too many for the lack of tenacity)...BUT, they held on gor the one point and then took the important second point with a few tremendous plays..And Hank was great....

I was at the game tonight...man was that tense. Henrik really bailed us out late in regulation..the Pens just kept going towards the net..I really thought they'd score before it could even get to OT.

Chris Drury..what else can you say? The guy is just clutch. No matter what we paid, he's worth every penny because of moments like tonight. I really am looking forward to watching him in the postseason on our side this time

I'd still like to see a little more from the offense..Fleury was very good tonight although he was bailed out by the post/crossbar a couple of times. We dominated the first but couldn't establish much offensive pressure after that. Still, we got goals when we needed them and that's all I care about tonight.

Also, props to the Penguins fans coming over here tonight. You can really tell who are the true fans of the team between who visited here tonight and who visited on sunday (except for a few classy ones).

Great atmosphere at MSG tonight and a much-needed win. For a while I thought it would be the Flyers game all over again. Now I know that we're in good shape as long as we have Drury and Lundqvist on our side.

You expect them to blow out the top team in the Eastern Conference twice in the same month? They played a good game tonight.

Big win. Officially in 5th place now. Too bad Pittsburgh got a point but we needed the 2. The Pens seem to have a lot of problems creating offense against us--it seems to me though they are the best in the East that they are beatable.

I agree. We can beat Pitt.

We just have to convert a little better 5 on 5. How many posts did we hit again tonight, 2 or 3?

If we could do even a little better on the PP we would be so much harder to beat.

Honestly, the Rangers have done quite well against the Eastern conference in general, so almost any matchup is OK. Not that any matchup is easy, but in years past you could always point to a team or two that were clearly head and shoulders above the rest of the conference and say "there's no way the Rangers/whoever will beat them". Not so much this year...as long as they're in the playoffs, the Rangers have a pretty good chance of getting to the Finals, I think.

Not guaranteeing anything here, I'm just saying the Rangers have played well against all these playoff bound teams. Really the teams that worry me are Ottawa (because there might be some psychological aspect that keeps the Rangers from playing well against them...they have good scoring, but shakey, shakey goaltending), and the Capitals if they make it in. Rangers can't win in DC to save anything, and the Caps always play them tough.

Meh, overall, I'd be ok with a matchup against the Devils. It'd be a tough series, but any series is going to be a tough one.

Nice to see the real Pens fans come to our board and show some respect.

Fans of good teams such as the Penguins don't need to talk smack. And its nice to see for the most part that they know that they don't have to.

Too bad we don't see more of this going both ways.

.

A few thoughts...

Pittsburgh played 2 solid defensive games in their own right. The Rangers I think controlled most of the 5 on 5 play at the Igloo and defensively the Pens did not crack. They got the calls and made us pay, we were not able to reciprocate in kind.

Last night the Rangers again controlled the flow of the game and again the Pens did not crack defensively.

I have to say that I am impressed with the last two games from the Pens perspective defensively.

One gripe, I think Talbot was off-sides and the play should have been blown dead there.

Great view of the Jagr Goal, in HD it was so clear that Gomer didn't touch the puck once you saw the overhead shot.

On Drury's goal, he almost killed Gomez. Gomez ducked on the shot and it almost hit him in the head. Fleury makes that save and it's PURE LUCK, he had 2-3 players in front of him and didn't even see the shot being taken.

A HUGE WIN, now to fry some fish and we clinch.

What a great win last night. Hopefully they can take this momenetum into playing the islanders, cause we all know that beating the rangers is the only thing that the isles play for...

I would be more worried if we weren't generating chances, but we had a lot of chances, we just didn't bury them. Dawes on the breakaway. Callahan hitting the crossbar and then Dawes hitting the post with the rebound.

I think it was Dawes best game of the year. He was flying. And the Jagr, Dubi, Straka line looked good. I even thought Prucha looked pretty good last night, though I think he needs to learn to take a wrist shot once in a while. And someone needs to teach Avery how offsides works.

need to take a serious run at Malone, man would he beef us up. I know theres no reason for him to leave Pitts, but you gotta at least throw him an offer.

I think the off season will be interesting for us. At least I am hoping to sign a top pair defense men.
