I just hope all the pressure is off the guys now that they've basically lost the game and handed Boston both home games. They may finally play some hockey now, just for fun.

Give him the Norris
But the letang to winger thread was closed instantly for being blasphemy!!! Granted it was ridiculous, but not with how he's been turning the puck over this entire series and parts of the season.

Norris Letang making Karlsson looking like prime Adam Foote when it comes to being defensively responsible.

The only thing that can save us right now is our PP. That being said I don't see even the Bruins being stupid enough to take any bad penalties with a 4-1 lead.

The overall effort of this team right now...it's going to make me do something drastic. It isn't over yet, but it is pretty damn close.

This is where you put Cooke with Geno and Neal.

Get Iginla away from Malkin.

Pens weakness is the few guys not playing intelligent hockey. There isn't room for error. If you take away Letang's idiocy this game is 1-1. He pinches non-stop on every shift. Crosby is left alone at the point and gives it up. Goal 2 Letang makes a terrible pass into the slot that gets picked. And goal 3 and lunges and takes himself out of a 3-on-2.. makes it effectively a 3-on-1. Hes brutal beyond words right now.

I don't have too much else to complain about really. Letang sunk us.. with an assist from Casual Sid. Sid has at least provided a little offense and nearly scored. Letang just follows up his garbage with more garbage.

He won't be. ****, it's bad enough that guys you don't expect are making bad decisions. These lines are just driving me nuts. Kunitz-Crosby-Dupuis . . . best regular season line in hockey . . . too bad it's the playoffs. Iginla-Malkin-Neal. I feel bad watching Geno and Neal play SH hockey at ES. We hoped otherwise, but the smart ones among us knew this was coming.

Well, Bylsma, time to get a clue. No more Adams ES shifts. Only puck retrievers EVERY SINGLE shift with Malkin and Neal. Iggy ONLY at RW. Mix it up for Sid. And, for the love of God, act like you're coaching a home game.

Well another thing is playing the puck defense... we probably should go to playing the man, but we rarely do that. Its burned us before... Like Ive said many times before, every hockey coach save a rare few has a 3 or 4 year expiration date... you have to keep things fresh when teams get stuck in bad habits

Obviously, we need to stick with offense tonight to try to come back. We have the firepower if we can manage to stop getting scored on.

Next game, I want Disco to get this team playing like its 2010 and Sid and Geno are hurt. Play tight defense and play for a 2-1 win. Except with Sid and Geno capable of breaking out plays at any time.

Shero made great acquisitions, without Vokoun we aren't even at this point. It's not his fault Letang plays like a moron and that we come out slow after losing a game at home during the conference finals.

For such die hard fans you guys flip out and lose hope on your team awful quickly.

We have a good team, let the chips fall where they may. Lots of hockey to be played, obviously they need to be better, and you have seen them be better

Boston came back from a 4-1 deficit in like less than 10 minutes. We have 40.

They just need to learn to play defense.

After seeing it again, Martin sticks out his stick and whether it deflects or just screens that's basically a perfectly placed shot and almost impossible for Flower. Terrible for him too...

Kunitz would be the better fit. After all, not like Crosby's line is doing any better. Top 6 needs to be shaken up, Bylsma needs to stop worrying about being right.

Because Bylsma is a moron. You watch. Next period. Same lines. And, we'll be rolling four. ****, if you're going down, go down giving your horses a chance.

Letang has it in him to play better and make a huge contribution to a comeback. But no, I do not believe he is a true no. 1 after watching him play these playoffs. I have no faith in him in his own zone.
