I can't believe those ****ing shootout kings, maybe the Penguins look like **** and we look like a junior team against them. The Devils are not that good but make the Penguins their *****es for some reason.

When we're not playing them, I don't realize how much I actually hate Pittssburgh. When we are, I can a actually realize it.

Good: Michelin line
Bad: every other line looked like ****.
I'm getting really sick and tired of Brandon Dubinsky being a no show. Unless you're Henrik Sedin, 1 goal every 10 games is just unacceptable. He said he'll go into the second part of the season with a chip on his shoulder, to prove why he wasn't traded. Not really seeing it.
Marty was not good.
Redden: that no call on (Niskanen?) when he tripped Gabby.

Without them it could have still been a 3-2 game at least

Just have to move on and hopefully beat the Avs on Saturday.

Defense was absolutely brutal tonight.

McDonagh stood out pretty badly. Just terrible and Gaborik on that one goal was just sleeping. Defense has really fallen of a cliff here. Really hoping this is just a bad stretch.

We wouldn't turn into the ****ing Flyers with Nash. He would not have made one iota of a difference tonight. And I was one of the biggest supporters of Nash.

This crazy schedule right now doesn't help. Games are every 2 days

Bryan Boyle hets far too much ice time and is seriously limited.
Brandon Dubinsky has lost his game, and has sucked balls all season.
Johnny Malkin Mitchell belongs in Hartford.
Stu Bickel belongs in Hartford.
The real Marc Staal will not be back until at least next season.
Ruslan Fedotenko is washed up.
Our most likely outcome is out in round one or round 2.
We need more of the prospects to grow and come through to compete for the cup.
Agree 100%. Add to that is Stralman, Bickel, and Eminger are dressed in the same game you will likely give up some prime scoring chance.

You mean like we should have cut our losses and moved Gaborik and DelZotto after last season?

Francessa was right -- all the Kentucky fans are cheering for Iowa State over UCONN.

The Ducks are like 10 points out right now of a playoff spot. They probably would trade Selanne right now...Damn

HAHAHAHA
McD could have cleared the puck and had a turnover because Neal was all over him and you blame Boyle, you are almost as in love with McD as Sam is with Sid.

And last goal shows you never played hockey, rebounds happen, if you are covering your man with a simple stick check no goal. Pretty simple, McD was just watching the play instead of being involved.

Go away Jan... just do me a favor and don't reply to my posts since you have no clue what you are talking about.

I disagree wholeheartedly.

You're trying to tell me if some of those little tap in goals that the Rangers couldn't score on happened to Rick Nash they wouldn't be goals? Nash would have buried 1-2 if given the chances some of the Rangers were given.

Niskanen did get the puck, but it looked like he tugged Gaborik down after he got the puck. Considering the weak calls the Pens got I really felt that should have been called and clearly the elbow to Fedotenko should have been as well.

Let the Penguins fans celebrate their little regular season win. I still think they finish 4th or 5th.

Great Post. I would add that these things were all apparent a few weeks ago and at the trade deadline we got.....John Scott

I like the third line, we need a better defensive matchup line. FAD looks like it could be that line. I am not sure if that second line will be any good, but its worth a shot.

We can't use Boyle as a defensive third line center anymore. Sorry people, its becoming a MAJOR problem right now.

Tough, tough loss. Hurts. But I take it with a grain of salt with our captain, a top 4 D man and MVP of the league (yeah, I said it) out against a great Pens team.

We aren't sniffing a Cup this year with Boyle, Feds, and Prust playing a regular shift. No scoring ability whatsoever.

0 secondary scoring whatsoever with Cally out.

Brutal games by Bickel and McD.

Bad game, onto the next one. Just get healthy for the playoff run.
