The pens had their chances. Anderson was super great for the sens and we have a series

Proof that the KHL is an easier league to play in.

Interesting how Pittsburgh has two guys take every single draw. Crosby with 43 faceoffs, Sutter with 36. The rest are just guys who had to step in when one of them got waived.

Looking back at that Babcock quote re: Zetterberg as captain and what it takes to be a true team leader, how about Alfy and that game-tier? Inspired play from a veteran when his team is short-handed looking for a goal.

I honestly can't remember the last clutch play from Horcoff since he took over the captaincy.

Just another nail in the coffin, folks.

Fail:

Giving up a shorthanded goal with 30secs left when all you have to do is nurse the PP, play safe, and avoid giving up something stupid.

Is there any team in the East thats competent?

Fail is the overrating Kris Letang gets around the NHL. He completely blew his coverage on that goal

Agree with that as well. What on Earth was he thinking. The one thing you don't allow in that instance is somebody getting by you and into the clear.

But the whole Pittsburgh club played that PP poorly. The idea in that situation is not to strictly hangback. you still want to be aggressive in NZ and not allow easy entry up ice.

The whole Pens set on that PP was too lax. Like they weren't competing. Thats the danger in becoming too passive in that situation and hanging back too much.

hmm, from the snippets I've read on various blogs and web articles re: last nights game and the game tying goal, and from the analysts I've watched on TV, they seem to pin the blame not on Letang but the rest of Pitt's forwards, specifically Malkin or whoever the centre on the ice was. I don't know. It looked bad all around though. I'm cheering for Pittsburgh, I hope they finish this in 5. I have a hard time not rooting for Sid, I want to see him build on his legacy.

Pittsburgh completely deserved that result. The last 10 minutes of regulation featured them chipping it out of the zone and getting away with penalties.

I can see this Sens team beating the Pens. Pens had the game won, in their minds, and it really reminded me of Game 3 Oilers-Sharks in 2006. And we know what happened then...In addition, Anderson > Fleury/Vokoun.

Sens will tie the series, and then take games 5 and 7.

Horcoff not being as good as Zetterberg.

The Penguins thoroughly disgusted me last night. They have the two best offensive players in the world and they're ****ing trapping with a 1-0 lead. And I don't agree with Cherry that it's the player's fault for standing back during that late powerplay. They did exactly what Bylsma wanted them to do.

When was the last time Horcoff scored an important goal or displayed some tangible, on-ice leadership skills? His All-Star season?

The point was that Horcoff lacking as a hockey player, and being inferior to Zetterberg is about equal to the Hindenburg disaster on the scale of new information.

Next thing you're going to tell me is that Datsyuk is better than Hemsky.

If people can't read the sarcasm in the post, that's their problem.

It's a clear shot at coaching/management who've let a role player assume captaincy in a league where every Cup winner seems to be an elite player.

Looking back...Brown, Chara, Toews, Crosby, Lidstrom, Niedermayer, Brindamour, Andreychuk, Stevens, Yzerman, Sakic, Hatcher...

When was the last time a Cup Winner had a captain that wasn't an NHL legend or key contributor? The '93 Habs with Carbonneau?

Iginla as a captain never won anything. Nor did Mats Sundin. Ovechkin hasn't won a championship. I don't consider Callahan an elite player but he got to the third round last year.

Remember Jason Smith?

Wow Gustav, shades of a rookie Datsyuk there. Amazing cross-up on Seabrook there with his elite-level speed.

Brunner!

The rookies are okay out in Detroit!

The captain does need to be somebody who leads by example, but I don't think the captain HAS to be an elite player.

That did nothing to answer what I'd just asked. What cup winner had a captain that wasn't a) a former superstar (02 Yzerman, 04 Andreychuk) or a key contributor?
