O didnt mean just offense but also a better Defensive game. I found in the first game that Pittsburgh let the sens have too much space.

I find it weird how that Ottawa's power Play looks good against them too. Seriously teams just pressure us at the blue line when we're coming in and out battle us easily all year and clear but the penguins seem to allow space and dispite have a great offensive cycle loose battle with us constantly on our PP. I don't get it.

I don't know that's just one thing of a couple. We seriously have the absolute worst PP in the league a little bit of pressure and we give the puck up so easily.

We struggled with them last series and now were up 2-0 on you.. Just saying

Totally serious we just match up better against them and seen to have their number. It's has nothing to do with underestimating them.

Too bad the Sens decided not to show up this round.

Pens will finish this off easily and get plenty of rest while the Bruins-Rags series will likely go 7. Big advantage for them.

Lmao, spoken like someone who hasn't watched the games. After the 1st period in game 1. We controlled the game the rest of the way but just couldn't finish with some great saves by Vokoun. Tonight, we played even better and lost by a goal while getting some ridiculous calls against us.

I don't know, sounds to me that you're the one who hasn't watched the games. Ottawa played better tonight than on Tuesday, really?

Shots were 42-22, Sens were alright, but Pittsburgh was better. at blaming the refs, when you get outplayed you take penalties.

Well then it sure is unfortunate that the results are decided by the goal scored and not the close calls and bad refs.

Doesn't change anything I said. This one ends quickly. Sens aren't in the same league as the Pens.

And trust me I want the Sens to win.

I don't think that's it. Penguins have 4 pretty solid lines for Ottawa to take on and some pretty explosive players.

I also think penguins next 2 games may give them some trouble if Spezza is back. All our centers slide down a line and he is our best forward.

I thought this was going to be a better series. I thought the only advantage the Sens had was in net, I was wrong. Looks like the Sens never stood a chance.

Bruins better win, because the Pens will absolutely ROLL the Rangers.

Ah, I remember when the Rangers dropped the first two and looked horribly outclassed in both games.

Sheesh. 2-0 is not a hole the Sens want to find themselves in, but its not the guillotine just yet.

You don't need to tell Pens fans. 2-0 down to Caps and 2-0 to Red Wings in 2009.

Yeah I don't know about that. You guys are also getting pretty cocky for only 2 games after what happened last series.

One more and maybe I'd show that attitude.

Pittsburgh hasn't destroyed Ottawa, this series isn't over yet. Pittsburgh needs to win one in Ottawa before we start talking about this being over.

Also to the guy above me, I don't think that guy is a Pens fans, so don't talk about us being cocky. Pittsburgh still has some work to do.

I will be nervous until, and if, the Pens nail down two more games.

But I will reluctently relinquish the underdog title now. I will begrudgingly call it an even bet until we see what happens in Ottawa. I am sure that the Caps felt pretty good heading to NY last round up 2 games to none.

Lol, contradicting yourself to a new degree. Sens playing a close game yet aren't in same league. Sens also getting back one of the best players in the game yet still not in the same league.

Interesting assessment, Watson.

Ruined his shoulder 2-3 times and became a shell of his former self. Not likely the same to happen to greening.

Who's "you guys"? I'm pretty sure the person you were quoting is not a Pens fan.

The Pens are really a team with too many weapons to stop---you can put your top D-men on Sidney Crosby, but who then plays against Evgeni Malkin's line? I had picked Pens in 5, and I'd be surprised if it goes beyond 5.

OK. Was genuinely curious. Never intended to imply anything about Greening, there.

Now I'm going to talk up the Pens like they're the '02 Wings to throw in as much bad feng shui as possible.

Hey, I already (reluctantly) gave up the underdog card. Though I reserve the right to take it back if we lose a game.
