I don't know what it is, but I'm not worried. It's just... posts... if even one of those goes in it's a completely different game. It's just one of those nights.

No kidding. How people would pin any of this on Vokoun is beyond me.

Both NBC and CBC trying to stir it into more of a controversy than it is, methinks. Vokoun was good tonight. A little help from pretty much everyone else in front of him and nobody would be talking about him.

Whatever. It's one game, we'll get it back. Sid has to pull his head out and play like he can.

I don't see the Bruins beating us unless we beat ourselves - as we did tonight. They don't have enough talent. I'm not impressed.

The best they can hope for is to make the game look like it did in period 2 and hope that they get enough junk goals.

I'm annoyed by this loss. The way the Pens played tonight reminds me of the way they played against Philly last year except that Boston's defense isn't made of swiss cheese. Too many of our big players trying to get chippy.

The scrum to end the 2nd was a killer, Pens keep letting Boston get to them, they won't win this series. No reason for Malkin to fight on the PP.

Crosby played his worst game of the season.

Morrow was invisible. I like him, but he has been bad in the playoffs IMO, outside of game 1 vs NYI.

Iggy continues to be slow 5 on 5.

Letang is a bad defensmen, who is great offensively.

Its one gam, but play under control.
IMO, if Cooke is suspended, then I put Vitale AND Bennett in. Kennedy has outlived his usefulness. He's back to full spaz mode.

So this game looks exactly like the Miami game that just ended....we dominated early and than got the life sucked out of us...the more talented team lost because our players did not help out our best player who carried us as far as he could

Pretty much this. Sid got frustrated for no real reason. Malkin fought, got it out of his system, and kept playing. He was by far the most dangerous Pen tonight. Kunitz looked was meh and so was Iggy. I would switch those 2 but we know that won't happen.

-The NBC crew for talking about playing Fleury. Vokoun has one game with a .900 save percentage and all of a sudden we should play the guy with a sub .900 sv%?

On the PP . . . yes.

On the lines, yes. Neal looked pretty good. Malkin looked pretty insane. Those two were so desperate for a forechecker, especially with Chara out there.

Time for Bylsma to realize that while Sid may like playing with Kunitz and Dupuis, what's good for the team are the lines you've suggested (and for which most of us here have begged).

- Letang forgetting he can actually play the puck with his hand instead of whiffing with his lacrosse stick.

Rask is a monster. Should have been 4 or 5 to 1.

Couple thoughts:

Malkin and Neal were bringing it. I hope they continue to do so next game.

Sid's gotta be a Hell of a lot better in the faceoff dot, and in terms of keeping his composure.

Vitale in for Morrow. Need someone who is capable of winning a faceoff.

Letang stunk out loud in his own zone tonight.

We'll be fine. It was a good game, but we out-played them for big stretches of the game. The Cooke penalty/ejection was complete ********. Give the guy two minutes, he deserved it, but a major and tossing him? Guess that's what happens when you're name is Matt Cooke. No problem for Marchand though. Heh...

I hate to say it, but Milbury wasn't too far off base in his comments tonight. Reel in the frustration and emotional ********, and calm down your game. If it continues like this, it's going to look a lot like the Flyers series, minus some atrocious goaltending from MAF. Speaking of Fleury, I hope Vokoun doesn't get yanked. He's not the reason we lost tonight.

I'd keep TK and sit Morrow. TK on the 4th line is a decent player. Morrow has just not had much of an impact for any stretch of the playoffs and is stretched on the 3rd line when playing with a poorly-playing Sutter and TK.

Sutter has been underwhelming but don't see anyway DB uses him as anything other than 3C.

-Letang was horrible
-Sid was really frustrated for who knows what reason
-Cooke gets 5 and a game, yet Marchand only gets 2 for the same hit.
-Hitting the post 3 times.

+Geno seemed fine with the physical play and didn't lose it.
+++We played very sluggish, had every bounce go against us, and still were in the game. I don't see Boston getting that lucky every game.
+I still believe the Pens can beat Boston and some spotty officiating.

Let's bring back our top lines setup where a certain HOF RW isnt out of position, shall we Danny boy? You know, the guy who has two points in his last 5 games since being introduced onto his current line. Of course Im talking about a return to the following top 6:

Dupuis-Crosby-Iginla
Kunitz-Malkin-Neal

Sutter ****ing sucks. Like, he's completely useless in the offensive zone. Can't finish glorious scoring chances. Can't create his own chances. Can't win board battles. Can't keep a cycle going.

That doesn't bode well for us.

I was honestly very happy with the play through the 2nd goal being scored. It was tremendous. We could have been up 2-3 goals easily. Let's just stay focused there.



Couple small moves i'd make to the line up:
1) Engo or Despres in; Eaton out.

2) Vitale in; Cooke suspended (come on...we know it)

3) Iggy to Sid's line; Kunitz to Malkin's. Sid's worst game by far and Kunitz needs some new love.




Small Game notes:

- Sid's worst game I've seen...ever? Probably. Bad from the start. He's frustrated for no reason. Calm down, 87, and play your game. You are fine.

- Letang: Defense first, and we will be fine.
Disagree big time.

Through two periods
+fresh legs
+physical
+Vokoun keeping it a goal


Overall
-Shot accuracy
-Poor slot presence
-No second chance at all
-Third period
Bruins got forecheck going and boxed out the Pens
-Face offs

Or just leave the puck to Vokoun. How hard is it to focus on the man and box the guy out?

Leaving your visor on is cheap as all hell tho, but ya even us Boston fans dont like Milbury much. That was fun hockey tho. Hope for a great series.

This exactly, Kennedy has shown life in the playoffs, Morrow has done **** all. And switch Sutter and JJ

+ First 40 minutes
+ Dominating physical play
+ Malkin was a beast when he wasn't in the box
+ Sutter's best game in these playoffs.

- Couldn't catch a break in front of the net
- Ice looked bad. Can it not be fixed?
- Malkin in the box for 5
- Eaton wasn't good
- Sid was due for a bad game. He'll bounce back.
- Martin has to stop trying to block shots. He's better at poke-checking.

There was onus on both players once he made that look back.
Brendan Shanahan has completely been on crack lately. Forget that McQuaid turned his back. Cooke is gone for 3-4.
