This team all around looks like its having issues but it'll be turned around. Hope the ending to his game puts a spark into the players and it stays!
Fleury isn't completely at fault but he does seem to be having issues, really hope he hasn't suffered anything mentally after collision with Martin few games back. in other news, Johnson seems to be turning his game around so hopefully he gets another start before playoffs.
Don't jump ship yet people, losing sucks but look what happened after our 6 game losing streak!
This team has heart and they sure showed it today besides losing the game.
Best part is you can tell crosby hasn't been perfect but he still has racked up points in his return, and when staalzy, Crosby, and Malkin all on fire, this team will be quite the challenge, for ANYONE!
Honestly we are going to destroy eachother. Nobody is making it past the second round...
Could happen, but a tough series can also make you better/stronger if you avoid major injuries to the key players. We had tough series with you guys and the Caps on the way to the Finals and you had a really tough series with Boston on the way to the Finals.
Hartnell's comments about the Igloo state the obvious. The place was a dump, especially the visitors locker room and the Pens really had the Flyers number during that couple year stretch when they met each other in the playoffs twice. It still only takes a stretch of beating the Flyers in CEC a lot and they'll dread coming here again.
It's also weird that many act like home-ice is so important and worth fighting for when the Pens have been bounced from the playoffs by losing game 7 at home the past 2 years and the Flyers/Penguins both seem to win more road games against each other than home games the past couple seasons.
I said this in the gdt when people were contemplating jumping and ill say it again.
I guarantee the pens beat the flyers in the final game if that game determines who gets 4th seed. That would make it a playoff style game and we will play with that do or die mentality that we have been lacking since the streak ended. Just wait.
