Have to come out focused in the third. That was a bad second period.

Dunno how Disco can't see that the Islanders have taken away the boards on the breakout.

feels like Sutter hasn't done a great job matching up against Tavares. particularly on faceoffs. Perhaps try Jokinen.

Team defense? Backchecking? Support coming out of the zone? Desire?

Very sloppy period, we can do much better. Fortunately for us, we aren't playing a top team and Fleury is playing a great game if not, we could be in 2-3 goal hole.

Yup everyone here is right, the pens suck from a couple mediocre periods where we are still tied.

We should just quit now, the team is trash, Bylsma is trash, we can never win and neither can he. We are better off stepping aside so the 16-0 teams with no tough games can pick up their trophies

We need an absolute shutdown period from our defense and particularly Martin.

We don't get that and it's easily a 5-3 Isles win.

Isles played that period like their life is on the lien for the playoffs.... and it is. If we win this game, it's pretty much game over.

Pens need to re-focus. We struggled a bit too much that period. Isles really won every matchup. Gotta stay focused and win this 3rd period. Just win this period and take it to Brooklyn.

Yeah that wasn't good needless to say. Scary how similar it looked to last year's playoffs. I don't know what chemical change happens to the team when the regular season ends but there has to be a way to stop it.

Is an early 3rd period goal asking for too much? Completely change the momentum.

We had a chance to build on a 2 goal lead and crush the Isles confidence. Instead we let them tie it up and now they believe they can hang with the Pens.

Tryin to stay calm over here but it's hard. I feel like the Isles just want it more than we do right now, which is baffling. The Pens need to start getting their feet moving. Too many lost battles that period.

I'm not even noticing huge structural issues. Last year the effort was there but the structure wasn't. This year both are usually there but tonight the effort is mostly not. Need to just get their feet moving in the third, simple as that. Want it more.

I think I've seen this movie before. Jump out to a lead, blow lead, lose game. If we win, the Isles played their best game and still lost. If we lose, it's a whole new series.

You would think the veterans on this team (basically everyone) would get take some control and play how they need to play.

Flower's been sick all series and deserved the first star last night. He's also the reason it's not 6 -3 Islanders after that ****ing disgrace. This is the most important period of the season. This is the period where we will exorcise the Curse of Al Arbour. LET'S GRIND THOSE *****ES DOWN BOYZ!!!!
