Fleury played 1 good game and 5 crappy ones. I guess thats good enough for the lot of you.

IMO the only guy on the team who performed beyond expectations was Jordan Staal. Its ironic hes the guy who might not be with the team in the fall too. Malkin has been horrible. Hes got the worst case of tunnel vision i've every seen. Sid just doesn't care any more. Hes not invested in this. Fleury - enough said. I'd put this game on him based on those awful two goals.

If we lose with class .... "CHOKERS!"

If Malkin takes someone's head off ..... "CLASSLESS!"

If you're going to go out, atleast go out with some dignity instead of not caring. Pens need to play that 3rd period like their LIFE is on the line. Atleast even if you lose, you can say you tried. Fleury? wow....talk about mental issues galore. HAS to be the worst goalie mentally in the league, it's hilarious!

Bashing? It's not bashing....
I'm just baffled by people putting the sole guilt on Geno. It should work both ways. Neither of them two were where they should be in this series.

Yeah, I think that definitely had something to do with it. The fact that Johnson sucked buttcrack meant Fleury had to play way too much. I think Shero should look into getting a backup that can play a handful of games, a guy like Josh Harding

So a first shot goal, two 5-hole squeakers, and 50 foot softie. Way to be prove those critics wrong, Fleury.

Its hard to believe that a team full of rookies wants it more than our team who is finally healthy for the first time in a long time. I really hope they show some heart in the third and im not talking about dirty/frustrated play like we saw in the first few games..

Watch us score to get within 2 again, only to have him give it right back 20 seconds later, all the while Orpik will be standing around with his thumb up his ass.
Goal 3 was hilariously bad, goal 4 was not his fault. Goal 1 was his fault...he had the angle.

Really? I thought the opposite. They create match up problems for us. Our D isn't good enough and right now we are on the leagues ***** list so it's PC to call all the penalties they want on us. I don't think they beat the Ranger or Bruins if either of those teams advance. Our goalie isn't playing lights out like Thomas, Lunguist or even Holtby and a lot of that has to do with the support they get on d. We also aren't strong enough to crash the net and score dirty goals, really haven't been all season. The Bruins are getting beat by a hot goaltender right now but the style they play will destroy Philly in my opinion.

If MAF can't assume Z's gonna kich a rebound back at him, he shouldnt be playing.

They only needed one more proven D-man and Shero didn't want to pay the price.

Now we'll get to bask in their glory of failure.

just check when they work on the walls, I wish I could go back and check individual battles for the puck, but I would bet Flyers win 80%, they just hustle more,
Malkin gets a puck wind around has 4 guys on him, that means our 3 guys should be open but no they hide they don't get open no movement, I guess its all on players, no coaching here

If you re-watch that Briere goal the defense played that perfectly. Fleury was surrounded by white jerseys and no Flyers player had a chance of getting their stick on that puck. All he's gotta do is find it and freeze it, and he didn't.

Well guys...there us one thing that we should keep in the back of our minds...

If there is one team that can score three goals in a period...its the Penguins.

We need shots. We need speed. We need hitting. Up 4-1 or not this Flyers team is still full if unexperienced rookies...and this team can get cocky. We putba couple past them...we can turn thetide.

Theybhave to keep their heads in it...no dumb plays, keep it simple, shoot the puck. No extra points for pretty.

Then just pray maf can hold his **** together for a period.

I've questioned bylsma since the 09-10 season started. We never went back to our system. It's so sick. I'm giving up on him. Just like therrien.

Bashing was strong, but I just meant that you literally can't say a bad word about Sid around here. Fact is he's been just okay lately.
