That's usually been the case, but TSN hypes it for ratings.

Any chance the Pens turn this around tonight? I remember another team from Philadelphia did something similar a few years ago.

I don't get the feeling that this series is over. There is too much potential firepower on that team. If the pens win tonight by getting 4 or 5 goals, they could rattle rask a little bit, who has a history of blowing his fuse. Simultaneously, it could give some of those elite threats some confidence, which they are probably lacking right now.

The pens are still trying to find their level. If they find it, they can win 4 straight against anyone.

And yes, philadelphia did do the trick against boston in 2010. Game 7 was ridiculous because the bruins jumped out to a 3-0 lead, only to lose the game 4-3. It was a synopsis of the entire series in one game. I'll never forget it.

It depends though. With Boston you started with a very good team. It's not like chemistry works wonder when you have a poor team and yet only improve by having chemistry.

If you have to bring in 3 or 4 guys, it tells you 2 things. There were things missing. And frankly, have a team been able to bring in 3 or 4 really VALUABLE guys?

Impressed to see how Vokoun stand tall there. Would have been so easy to panic and get on his knees.

Not against a team playing at this level. Goaltender through player 23 Bruins are the better team.

I was banned for the last three weeks but I still continued to read you guys. And it's interesting that you said "Of all people...Adam McQuaid" because probably one week ago you wrote: "I don't believe in Karma".
