Seriously. Kunitz really should have made that goal look a lot more pretty. Maybe a spin-o-rama or something.

I really don't care if Hartnell did the same thing literally a minute earlier. Why the heck is Neal going out of his way to be an idiot? It has been stated ad nauseam that this team needs to stay away from that crap. And the Neal, of all players, decides to be a dumbass whenever he is on the ice. DUMBASSES - ALL OF THEM.

Neal has absolutely no discipline and makes Rocky Balboa look like a scholar....but he can score goals. That's cool. Helps a lot in the playoffs.

I just kind of wished they called MacIntyre up for every single game against the Flyers.

It's painfully obvious he's not talking about the POWER PLAY goal.

Neal's problem is he gets involved with the mind games against Philly. No one else. Does take dumb penalties against others but then so does half the team.

I think he believes it's his job to be tough or get in people's faces when it's not. The fact that he continues doing this is 100% on the coaches because it's easily remedied with a little well-timed locker room humiliation or by just benching his ass for half a period right after he takes one.

Neal's hockey IQ is fine, what's not fine is how he handles mind games.

Someone in the dressing room needs to stand up and make it known that this isn't acceptable but I suspect Dan will get them a pat on the back and an unlucky followed by a day off tomorrow.

Neal's pissing me off, and it hardly has anything to do with his penalties.

Perfect description of a "blunt instrument"

Neal is seriously making me angry. That line was just Malkin and Bennett.
That's a step up for Malkin. I can't say how pleased I am with Dangles' play tonight. Smart, physically competitive.

I think Despres looks pretty good out there tonight too. Oops, my bad . . .

Engelland looks putrid. His days on this team are numbered if you ask me.

Those calls were absolutely rediculous. His goalie just got ran on an offsides call and he lovetaps giroux and gets called. Not to mention he gets jumped by Hartnell and punched over refs. I'm not going to fault him for that, sorry. 29 other teams in the league would kill for him and his contract

Just end this game now and let's get the **** out of here and regroup. Pathetic performance from top to bottom.
It wasn't even, Niskanen. It was Fleurys stick and Nisky just happen to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.

I think were being a tad too hard on Fleury.
2 goals went in off Martin's stick. One changed direction 3 times. Engo had a perfect screen on another and he didn't pick up Rinaldo on another one.

Somebody standing up and saying this isn't acceptable won't mean jack ****. Nothing will change until there is accountability for your actions. That can only come from the head coach.

Considering this is how he wants his team to play hockey though, I doubt much will change.
