Jokinen was ridiculous in the faceoff circle tonight winning, I **** you not, 87% of his faceoffs.

Will be a great addition to the lineup when all are healthy, which will probably never happen this season.

Many times when the Pens were stuck in their own zone I kept saying "who the F is on the ice" and then I realized it was Geno's line a lot. I MISS SID

+ Fleury looked athletic and amazing out there ... Nice to have MAF steal one for us. Hopefully a bump for the ego as the playoffs near.

+ Jokinen, Morrow, Murray -- new guys looking like character guys who want to make an impression.

+Dupuis, I love this guy. No matter what else is going on he's going to be absolutely flying out there and doing what he can.

++++++++++++++++++++++++Fleury. Stole 2 points we had no business getting.


+Jokinen. Faceoffs were unbelievable!! Goal plus the game decider on the shootout? Let's see if this guy can be a contributor on the 3rd line come playoff time.

+Engo. Thought he made some really nice, tough, unnoticed plays.

+TK. Looked solid on the 4th line.

+Cooke. Just because.

+Murray. Just DROPPED 6'6 Boyle. How often are you going to see that? Dude crosschecks Kunitz in the back of the head and you get some sweeeeeet payback.

-Injuries. **** the hockey gods.

-Geno. Idk what is going on with him.

-Rangers. I think I may hate this team more than the Flyers. **** you Nash, Callahan, Clowe, Del Zotto, and most of all your whiny son of a ***** coach who is the biggest clown employed by the NHL.

Glad they got 2 pts, but this win was all Fleury and Juice. The D was just as bad (or worse) than the past 2 games. Flower stole it.

Officiating a joke and the Rangers are a joke. I hate the world.

Hope Neal is okay.

I love Jokinen, played like a guy who wanted to earn a spot on a playoff team. Great. He worked well with those two, too, even though he's the lowest one on that line by a wide margin.

Am I the only one who is mad that Neal might have a serious injury on a dirty hit & nothing was done about it?

++ STOP! Fleury Time!

+ JUUUUUUICE!

+ Showed some ****in' SNARL out there. Bless you Douglas Murray, Morrow, and Matt Cooke. I really want to play these a-holes in the playoffs now. F Philly I want the Rangers. Would be an awesome series.

- F U M D Z.

- Neal did not look good at all after that leaping elbow. Let's hope it was just a jaw-shot that knocked him out temporarily, not anything concussion related.

- This team will have a hard time winning without a healthy Tang in the playoffs. Even when he's bad he still brings a lot of Flow *cough* to the game that we don't have without him.

- Geno is in dat funk.

Waiting to hear Disco say that Neal will be re-evaluated tomorrow. Upper body injury, day to day.

I went crazy watching that game in the 3rd period. Standing at the TV, door to apartment open, yelling SO MUCH profanity at that dirty team, the neighbours knocked on my door and told me to basically ****!!! **** that dirty, boring, joke of a team. I ****in hope a few of their guys get injured, karma is a *****! injure our team, we will **** you up! Wish Dupuis connected with that hit on the icing call.

Best news is that they actually have three days between games now. Time for the injured guys to recover and the healthy to actually get some real practicing in and build an actual rapport on the ice.

Great game by Fleury, well-deserved chants for him all game. Murray and Jokinen look like worthwhile acquisitions, still not sure what Morrow adds right now.

How did nobody (except Dupuis during the icing race) go after Del Zotto after he elbowed Neal to the quiet room and clotheslined Malkin? How was neither action even a penalty?

Orpik has been dreadful all year. The fact that he looks less terrible with Martin is a testament to Martin's great bounce back season.

I've got a man crush on Murray; he is what a physical shot blocking D is supposed to look like.

The way it's going every single player is gonna have to touch the puck the rest of the way.

+ Fleury. I don't think there are enough adjectives to describe him

+ Jokinen. I'm glad we finally got the new guy luck

+ Morrow, might be his best game so far, the only other one close was when he was on Malkin's line

+ Cooke trolling the Rangers

+ Murray

- Neal's injury. Hate to see that

- That line and the fact that Dan won't change it. Although I have to say Geno definitely looked better in overtime than regulation.


For a game that started out slow, the last 25 minutes and shootout were pretty intense. One of my favorite periods in terms of intensity all season.

Oh and that "icing call penalty" on Dups was a travesty.

My plusses will go to Fleury and Jussi.

Cooke did a really goon act on Lundqvist, he could have been easily 2 min in the sinbin.

Malkin, Malkin, Malkin.. you're just the shadow of yourself, lazy and too easy on plays. You can thank Fleury on that save on Stepan's shot since you're too slow to come back defend.

Smells bad for Neal, Del Zotto really got him right on the chin.

It's just terrible to see how bad we need Crosby to have that great offense. Say depht ? Yea right, i don't see anything dangerous right now offensively. Meh that sucks. Players need to cycle better and stop being cocky.

The team tried to do something about it once they realized how dirty of a play it was, but the refs put the kibosh on that real quick.
