Wah! Frustrating game as a Pens fan, and quitely clearly the Pens players too.

You are well coached, play solid structured team defense and after the first 8-10 minutes clamped down on Bylsma stretch pass no matter what 'strategy'. When it hardly ever gives you possession in the offensive zone and you instead do very playable dump-ins against the best puck handling goalie ever, you are asking for trouble.

That said, it didn't help that forechecking and hitting D-men was disallowed. It was embarrassing that Vitale got penalties for hitting Fayne and Greene on the shoulder when they turned their upper bodies full well knowing that the hit was coming. There were no arms extended or anything, just two players who didn't want to take a hit to make a play, and instead got rewarded with PP time. What a terrible path to take for the NHL if this is the new normal.

Everything became a penalty in this one, and while the Pens players should certainly be more disciplined, the refs. killed what could otherwise be a good game.

Either way, we gotta have a more elaborate plan against that D. Just hoping that we can get the drop on you and force you into a run and gun game just doesn't cut it. Suppose we could start by getting Malkin someone who isn't a black hole like Boychuck, because he was making things happen all game.

Going for a split!

NB: I have nothing but love in my heart for Henrique. Great find he was and he is showing that it wasn't just a rookie aberration. Will be a great player if he isn't already.

Canucks have been doing a pretty good job at it too! I'm a little busy on Saturday nights so that's why you didn't see me in the GDT, but I did catch the game! You'll see me on Tuesday for another stomping of the Wild!

You brought us some too, and besides I like the Nucks!

As for Loktionov we're not really sure yet. Zubrus could be going on LTIR. This would open up a spot for another forward. Could see him up soon. I hope to at least.

I'm really astonished that Crosby would throw an elbow to the head of another player. It is shockingly ironically moronic. That missing chromosome cousin of Lindros needs to be educated on the theories of karma.


Do you think the league will do anything about it? HA!

Funny, but I've been recently thinking: it's nice to see Butler and Bernier on the PP from time to time, but we can't have these guys as our 2nd unit.

Wrong again.

Don't think it was any colder then it has been for much of the season, save a couple really warm days, thus far.

The loss of Parise doesn't even hurt that bad, with the emergence of Henrique, and the obvious D for Forward trade that should be imminent, the team will have depth up front just in time for the playoffs.

Its still relatively early and I shouldn't get ahead of myself, but this team is playing like they have some unfinished business from the finals last year. And so far, it looks like this team is going to give us another awesome playoff run. Lets just hope everyone can stay healthy like they have been *knocks on wood*
Well it certainly gives us the oppurtunity to make the right trade, and not just any trade.

And as long as Larsson is in the lineup on most nights(no problem rotating guys in an out in the short season) I don't mind the defensive logjam.

Same, don't like it personally, but the crowd is into it, so whatever.

Saw that and agree you would think after what he went through, it would be the last thing he would do.

Nothing to be surprised with about Crosby throwing that elbow at Gio. Dude is weasel and always has been. The league should definitely take a look at it but they wont because he is the poster boy ***** of the league. It's clear that since he started feeling better again, his yapping and cheap shot self is back in full force.

I love it. It seems like the whole arena does as well, and since I think it's safe to say our goal song isn't changing its here to stay for a long time.

I don't like Crosby but that was nothing. There is no chance in burning hell that can injure anyone.

Matteau scored the exact type of a goal I want to see him score.

Agreed.

The point stands though. Shouldn`t he be the prime example of a player who stays away from such behavior? Especially after what happened to him? Betcha it`ll come back to him, sooner or later. And I can`t say I`ll feel sorry for him.

I can't see it working like that. He plays the way he plays: an edgy, and at times quietly dirty game, but less so than Malkin. If I was his shrink I wouldn't tell him to try to be sweeter out there because of "karma'. It's not his game. Guy is an ass, and it's part of his strength, like it or not. Stars can't be little Wayne Gretzky-girls nowadays hiding behind goons.

Like many said in the offseason, the maturation of Henrique is going to seriously ease the pain of no Parise. They guy just has it. A complete player. A Canadian tank who won't back down from anyone. He's going to be a very good player for a long time in this league.

So he`ll end up as he deserves. We all will be saying "he had it coming" and a single **** won`t be given that day. In fact, I`ll be happy that he`s no longer in the league. His antics got old very quickly. I don`t care for superstars, or any players for that matter, who continuously put themselves or other players in danger and attempt to implement diving/acting into the game of hockey.

Just two questions remain to be answered: when and who.

I hope it`s someone like Torres. Kill two birds with one stone.
