I'm not sure when Cotourier became a better 2 way center than Staal........but he **** on Malkin 2 straight games and Staal got absolutely crushed in 2 straight games.

Yep, because THAT is what will turn the series around...

Vitale could be banged up. He missed some time early in the game because of a hit he took in the first.

And as for Jeffrey/Tangradi in over Adams and Asham; Why? They're not the problem. Our defense is.

Now, if you said Despres in for Lovejoy, I'd agree.

Not against the this Flyer team. I just can't see it with all things considered. Taking 4 of 5 from these Flyers with what we have(and what we've seen), just ain't gonna happen.

In all seriousness. come out and play a more structured game and you can come back from Philly 2-2. I am old, and have seen that happen many times. Just win the next one.

important to note that Cooter was a +4 while Talbot was a +5 tonight ... Malkin and Neal were both -4 ... and now the Flyers have the last change which means more Cooter time for Malkin

Asham was brought in specifically to add sandpaper in series like this and some clutch plays; he isn't doing ****. No one is going to fight the guy at this point so he's bordering on useless.

Lovejoy was woeful in the playoffs last year.
This year he is so far beyond woeful that there is no words for it.

Martin looks like he is afraid of physical play.

It honestly looks like this team think they are too good to play D. Pathetic...

It should be noted, for the sake of propriety, that Pascal Dupuis continues to be awesome.

Well, I've been calling a lot of this all year, and it's all coming to fruition now.

- Ray Shero. You've done a great job of assembling a team of superstars. The problem is, those stars think they're playing in an All Star game, not the Stanley Cup playoffs. Get some ****ing Dmen with black eyes, beards, missing teeth, etc. Get some wingers that weigh over 160lbs and can actually dig pucks out of corners. Hope you learned a lesson over the past 3 years.

Now onto this game:

- Dan Byslma. This is it. I've had it with you. You are not a playoff coach. Anyone, and I mean anyone can coach this team to 45 wins in the regular season, and into the playoffs. Your 'game' doesn't translate into the post season. You make zero adjustments. You have no defensive scheme whatsoever. You FINALLY make a change to the PP. Great, you scored 2, and gave up 2 shorties. The last 3 seasons have abruptly ended due to your insane arrogance and ignorance. Way to call that timeout with 30 seconds left and down by 2. Go back to the AHL you ****ing moron.

- Defense. Everyone not named Derek Engelland should throw themselves off the 7th St Bridge tonight. I've been watching hockey faithfully for 25 years, and I've NEVER seen a worse defensive corps in my life. Can't clear a puck. Can't clear the net. Can't score. Can't move anyone off a puck. Can't pass. Can't tie anyone up. Honestly, if I were Shero, I'd keep Letang and Engo, and tell the rest to get bent.

- Malkin. Geno, you disappear more than David Blaine.

- Fleury. 6 goals? Yeah, the D sucks, but you gotta make a few saves. Oh well, what's one more series of getting outplayed by an inferior opposing goalie?

- Pretty much the rest of the team. I'm not listing them. They're all here.

+ Sid, Dupuis, Kunitz. Should put them on a line and play them the entire game. The only 3 that seem like they care.

+ Only two more games of this ******** left.

Are weakness is tissue soft defense when rattled implodes within itself.

Our offense as a whole is fine. That is nowhere near the reason why we are and have been losing games. I have no idea why people even bring that up.

Kunitz and the Sid line looked like the only people that gave a **** tonight.

I hope the Pens get their ***** handed to them the next two games too. Maybe then we'll clean house in the off season and move on.

DB needs to go. We need a coach who respects his opponent. I don't care if Couturier is a rookie, we have home ice so we should dictate the matchups. DB constantly disrespects his opponents ability. Happened before when he said Neuvirth sucks.....pens lost that game too.

Also need to start benching players, would Torts play lovejoy after that mistake he made? NO

Right before the Jagr goal, we iced the puck. Seemed like a good time to call a timeout.

DB just doesn't get it.

Well, he has been the best player on the Pens and even on both teams these two days. Not even arguable imo. Its just not possible for him to create 4 goals by himself every night. Tonight he created two, and it wasnt enough. Clearly not enough..

If not for Hitch's record, i can see Bylsma winning that Jack Adams for what the Pens have gone through this season. But your back is against the wall, the whole team will either continue to implode, or they will start showing why we are considered the best team in the NHL.
