we mostly suked. well. not mostly, totally. can you say, mail it in? not show up? not prepared. not ready. no passion. no creativity. waste of my time. all that. it was just plain bad.
we cant win on network tv against the pens if we play like crap. period. with the calls and refs against us and the network seemingly only interested in cindy crybaby we better play our best. we didnt. we lose.
hank played well. he wasnt nearly perfect enough tho and thus, we lost.
zero goals against a team that has given up 21 more goals then us in the same 47 games. bad. we are seriously offensively challenged.
pp. um. zilch. again. perry pearn. not fired. makes perfect sense.
What? That the ref missed a potential tripping call? GET OVER IT! Missed calls happen in every sport! Learn to live with it! Still wouldn't have changed the fact that you were grossly outplayed today, and you failed to capitalize on the PP opportunities you did have. THrowing out ridiculous conspiracy theories about how the NHL and NBC are conspiring to help the Pens in order to excuse just how badly your team played is still laughable.
I complained about it to prove a point that missed calls went both ways. I'm not the one that was complaining about the officiating, remember?
Sorry to belabor the point, but when the penalties are handed out 5 to one team, 2 to the other for the game, and the score is 3-0 before the pens take their first penalty, I think its safe to assume the team getting the short end of these missed calls is going to be upset about it...
Let me explain, removing the matching penalties to crosby and orr, means the penguins were penalized twice in the game, now where most fans take issue is that means the referees that saw the Rangers take 5 penalties (and assumingly missed a few that werent called), these same referees only witnessed 2 infractions by the Pens, which is absolutely inconceivable when off the top of my head I can think of the
1)Trip that was missed by Hal Gill on Korpikoski (that lead to the missed korpikoski high stick that would have never happened if he wasnt tripped)
2)The blatant slash on Blair Betts 5 feet in front of the ref, that broke his stick and sent him to the bench shaking off the pain
3)The crosscheck from behind on Chris Drury in front of the net with the puck loose under Fleury's leg
How the hell can a professional team of referees miss more calls than they actually end up calling???
why would goddard fight and risk getting the rangers hyped and maybe making a comeback in the game..did the rite thing and made orr look foolish....orr really showed a lot by going after sid......sid just laffed and swung a bow at him..
the penguins are the 'hyped' team. over-hyped actually. they're not that good.
Man, I really wish we had won that game
Still pissed off lol, and now the Flyers and Devils have 2 games in hand and only a point behind...*****..Let's GO NASHVILLE!
It's highly unlikely both teams lose their next 2 games though:
NJ has Nashville and Montreal
Philly has Atlanta and Florida
You guys remember the Pens fans falling all over themselves whining that Gary Bettman was going to rig the draft lottery so that the Rangers would get Sidney? Everything from magnetized balls, to overstuffing Ranger names and substracting Penguin names.... lol
Talk about conspiracy theories to the tenth degree. Pens fans crack me up sometimes.
According to Sam, Prucha and Korpiskoski sit in practice for Fritsche and Voros
Markus Naslund-Scott Gomez-Ryan Callahan
Nigel Dawes-Chris Drury-Dan Fritsche
Aaron Voros-Brandon Dubinsky-Nikolai Zherdev
Fredrik Sjostrom-Blair Betts-Colton Orr
According to Renney, the new lines were in part a function of needing to get Voros and Fritsche some practice time at forward since they had spent the past few weeks practicing as spare defensemen.
Renney always panics whenever the Rangers get spanked, and it's never the high priced bums who sit. I hope that these are just "practice" lines, but with Renney's track record of messing with the lineup whenever the Rangers lose, I doubt it.
That's the only thing they complained about was the diving? Sure that is quite ironic and laughable, but I seem to remember their coach, team, and fans ALL crying about how the Wings play defense and did constant obstruction vs their beloved team the entire series.
