People are making way too much of the third period. It's almost impossible to judge teams in the final week of the regular schedule. There's a real sense of "let's end this thing already" for a lot of teams. Next week, everybody is tied for first again, and we are one of the 16 in the dance. Nothing else matters.

all the same -- i think we'd all feel a bit better if they come out and hammered the isles and habs over the next few days.

that montreal game is going to be nasty, though. there's a chance that game will be the difference between making or missing the playoffs for them. home finale for the 100th season? the place is going to be nuts.

I tend to agree.. It was like they knew they had it wrapped up and got lazy, had some mental errors and were out of position. They definatly need to address those things but I think they will come out strong next week against whoever. I can see them thumping the Isles and having another barn burner against Montreal.

To be quite honest with you I'm really not getting my hopes up that we'll come out of these next 2 games with wins. Our chances are obviously strong against the Isles considering just how bad they really are, but at the same time I'd expect them to come out with the fury of hell in their eyes looking for a win in order to save face after such a humiliating defeat tonight against the Canes.

As for the Habs game, I'm DEFINITELY not expect us to win that one. The Pens will be going into a hostile environment in the Bell Centre, in a game that will potentially be pivotal towards their playoff hopes depending of course also on how the Panthers and the Rags do in their upcoming games as well. Needless to say they're gonna come at us with everything they've got, whereas I honestly don't see the Pens giving max effort.

Actually I wasn't just referring to that call alone. The Tampa Bay announcers are major homers. Even some of their own die hard fans that I know think they are.

Also your reference to the Islanders is moot. 3/4 of our roster is on IR, plus we are in the middle of a rebuild, what did you expect?

Now back to your Penguins GDT...


Congrats on the Playoffs Pens fans!!!!

Gotta say, as a dedicated Habs-hater, nothing would be sweeter than knowing that my beloved Pens were the ones responsible for crushing their playoff hopes in the last game of the season

Well .. I thought I'd try the "opposite of jinxing" .. as Super Reverse Homer remarked.

It's like .. it seems to me that the threat of injury is there for that game .. whether we like it or not .. and so some 'deterrent' psychic energy against that threat is called for.

But, yeah, I know what you're saying.

Thank god we don't play in the Southeast. I mean, not only would our team record suck, but Crosby and Malkin would probably top out at THE MOST 50 points a season. This just goes to show how weak the Atlantic is and how inflated Sid and Genos stats are. OV is CLEARLY the MVP in the league taking into account how ineffective Malkin's been against the SE.














But in all seriousness, it's probably AO's to lose. Hopefully Geno can hold on to the Art Ross.

I can't believe we nearly blew a 4 goal lead to the Lightning, of all teams.

Here's hoping for a 60 minute effort on Thursday.

How about the trifecta? Beat them on Saturday, knock them out of the playoffs in the centennial year, and for good measure on July 1 steal away Kovalev.

That said, Saturday's game is going to be very hard to win if Mtl hasn't clinched yet. If they have, it could be a relative bore. Either way, I will be there. We tend to suck whenever we play Mtl, but it will be hard to top the last time we played at the Bell Centre; that was the Whitney-Goligoski pairing (-5 collectively) night. I still wake up at night in a cold sweat with that game fresh in my mind. That game was also "Lightning Strikes Caputi" night, when he scored on his first NHL shift.

Hopefully, there will be something memorable about Saturday's game, but something positive.

Take care of yourself man and don't celebrate too much if we knock 'em out of the playoffs, their fans will be crazy, you could get kill

Personally, I'm going to "La Cage aux Sports" in Victoriaville with a bunch of Habs fans friends and I expect to be punched in the ribs more than once (because they always try to get physical after a Pens goal, he, he).

He didn't "run" him. Running him would have been not stopping outside the crease after he shot the puck and continuing to skate through Ramo. He stopped outside the crease after making a legit play. Any contact was incidental, and btw, outside the crease. That will almost never get called. A better example of goaltender interference was the Schzzhczchzhczhzczhzchzura goal where Scuderi got cross checked into Fleury, who was in the crease.

No, its the real NHL. He didn't check him behind the net. There was contact made outside the crease. He stopped. Outside. The. Crease.

That goal should not have been allowed. Incidental contact with the goalie can be called without a penalty. Simply wipe out the goal. That would have been the correct call. Fedotenko didn't mean to impede Ramo, but the rule is if you do so incidentally the goal is to be disallowed. No penalty.

They blew that one, no question.

No, they didn't.

Well if the guy has a left foot, a right foot AND a back foot, he should be playing hockey.

Anyway, I have no problem with it being a goal. Fedetenko did not intentionally touch him, he's turning to find the rebound of the scoring chance he just had. Fedetenko was not in the crease even though the goaltender may have had the big toe nail of his "back" foot in it.

If you call that goal back you can call back an aweful lot of goals where someone is camped in front of the goalie. Or any scrum where the goalie it touched in any way.

I suppose it's open for interpretation. My feeling is they blew the call, and had it happened to Fleury in the playoffs I would have completely lost it.
