I thought Hank was shaky too on some of these goals lately he normally stops them. I thought about putting him in for the bad but he did enough where he had a solid game. Otherwise we both woulda had
PP
Hank
Start.
Great minds

I'd rather have some depth, we couldn't get a pick for any of these guys, maybe for Gilroy. Torts is playing our top 4 d-men 20 minutes a game. Eminger got 4+ minutes, Gilroy got 7+ minutes, they can't keep that up. I fully expect a trade for a 3rd pair d-man who can log some minutes, maybe w Gilroy and a pick going back if we can't get Kaberle.

Agreed, Lundqvist didn't look like his usual self, but the D was still shaky and bad at times as well.

The Redden is dead on. Giving up 2 goals in quick succession against that squad was disastrous and should never had happened in the first place. Unacceptable.

Definitely agreed on the bad start. Should have been a 5-1 game.

I may single out Callahan, Boyle, and Wolski in particular for the Good, but I agree with everything else you said.

Lundqvist was going down way too fast today, especially early on and early in the 2nd period. Third pairing is a joke 4 minutes for eminger, 7 minutes for gilroy... a trade will be happening soon for another d-man.

You don't go to Pitt do you? (I've got hockey tonight in Pittsburgh, too).

The Good:
Callahan, Dubinsky, Staal, Anisimov.

The Bad:
Gilroy, the first goal, overall sloppy D

The Redden:
The Pens forward depth is horrible right now, and we probably shouldn't have given up 3 goals to them.

Also, Kris Letang scared the hell out of me everytime he eyed up a shot.

Gabby is definitely getting his step back. He's been showing that burst of speed, and is really putting in a good effort the last few games. He even threw some good checks today. He keeps up this effort and the goals will come.

The Good: Tort's timeout, Callahan, Boyle, Staal, PP (can't believe I'm saying this)
The Bad: Hank's first few minutes in net
The Redden: The bad start

At the game today, crowd was pretty dead considering how crowded it was. Probably because it was an afternoon game. Also a ******** of Pens fans, more then I've ever seen probably.

Got the two points which is all that matters, on to the Kings.

I voted Staal. He was on his game, big time. The Penguins were relentless on the forecheck and Staal was calm with the puck at all times.

I think people are being a little too critical of Hank. I totally agree he looked a little tight in the net, he wasn't comfortable, but again we have another game where the goals against were as follows-

1)McD got smoked, Staal made a beauty of a pass, hank got a piece...but it trickled in
2)Eminger goes down in front of the net but turns the wrong way, deflection off our d into the net
3)Powerplay goal

I fail to see the softie

Maybe he wasn't himself tonight, but I don't see how he hurt us at all either

Goal 1 - Hank was flat on his face and left the net wide open
Goal 2 - McD didn't get smoked; Dupuis came out of the box surprised him and Johnson had momentum and got a step on him. The shot was weak and stoppable glove side.
Goal 3 - A flutterer that he was down too early on.

None were softies but on each one he could have made the save unlike 4 of our goals where Fleury had no chance.

On the Eminger goal Hank was down way too fast and busy flopping around for too long as opposed to getting up and trying to get in position. I don't feel it was a softie, it was a bad bounce, but he was down on the ice too early and for too long.

As for the one where McD got smoked he got a piece and it almost looked like his motion put it in the net. Again not a softie, but a stoppable puck.

He just looked shaky at times and he has to work on how fast he drops sometimes taking him out of position to make a save. He did not give up a softie IMO tonight, but he was down often and early, way too much for my liking.

The Good - Cally, Arty and Staal
The Bad - The 3rd pair although Torts didn't give them a chance to get into the game
The Redden - Missing open nets; Fleury wandered alot and we couldn't take advantage and Gabby missing the empty at the end.

The 2nd one, McD couldnt keep the puck in and got caught up, he then tried to keep up and could not, he also couldn't seem to get a piece of Johnson's stick, he gets some blame on that goal.

I agree Hank should've stopped it, though. It looks like he had it and then it sorta plops past him.

Not one of Hank's best games.

McDonagh is turning out to be the most recent in a series of pleasant surprises for this team. So far the positives...

Stepan
McDonagh
Boyle
Sauer
Prospal
Biron

are outweighing the negatives

Gaborik
Frolov
Del Zotto

I wouldn't call Gaborik a negative, just not as much of a positive as he should be. And Frolov got hurt, and we got Wolski right after, so youre right the good surprised definitely outweighed the bad ones.

POTG : Boyle/Callahan
the Good : The Isles for kicking their Dicks in the game before
the Bad : Lundqvist really fighting it early with his rebound control and Positioning
The Redden : Lemieux's state of the league address , wake up Mario Matt Cooke is the cheapest Dirtiest player in the league who has already ruined a few guys careers and seasons . If it wasnt for the leaue bailing you out 10 years ago the Pens would not exist . as great as you were , Cooke is on your payroll who are you to cry about head shots and lack of respect for the game

Player of the game: Cally

The good: The powerplay

The Bad/Redden: Mario's comments about the Isles/Pens game, and the Rangers announcers who continually harped on it. How about the fact that I haven't heard almost anyone mention hockey lately at work: after that game, everyone is psyched and wants tickets. How about we let the fans decide...

The Good: The PP today
The Bad: Mario cranking up the whining machine again.
The Redden: Anyone who had to watch and listen to the FSC Pittsburgh broadcast with Shecky Steigerwald and Pee Wee Errey.

NEW YORK – Five minutes and six seconds into their Sunday matinee against the Penguins, with the Rangers on a six-game losing streak and trailing 2-0, coach John Tortorella called a timeout. He had a decision to make. Either he could yell and scream at his underperforming team for allowing two quick goals to players with a total career output of five, or he could try to calm his unit down and remind them they had nearly 55 minutes of hockey still to play.


“It wasn’t a loud timeout, he wasn’t screaming at us, it was just calm your emotions and relax a little bit,” said Ryan Callahan, who scored two power play goals to give him four goals in his six games since returning from injury. “I think we got off to a pretty good start, our first shift we were in their end, we were coming hard. Unfortunately we got two quick ones on us there, two mistakes, two bounces. The timeout pretty much said relax, keep playing, we were fine, there were [nearly] three whole periods left to play.”
