How pissed off do Pirates fans have to be at these players for waiting until this year to put it all together?

From my stand point rout about sums it up. I give a lot of credit to the Bears...both teams were pretty evenly matched on the 5-5 and the teams started off hesitant but the Bears quickly took advantage of the PP and that is all that mattered tonight.

It was actually a pretty good game until the 3rd Hershey goal. Portland came out with a jump in the 3rd but took a bad penalty and that was all she wrote. 4 PP goals...what can I say? If Portland is going to give up 12 PP chances and can't convert once in 8 they don't stand a chance.

For two periods the game was pretty even but the minute the 3rd goal was scored the air went out of the Pirates. Cassivi was the difference early and Hurme was very weak for Portland. Honestly Hurme looked tired and that is another reason now for Portland fans to worry. Portland never had control of the puck long enough to exploit Hershey's D and being the only weakness for the Bears it was a shock Portland didn't do more to get in tight with Hershey's D.

Tonight was the exact opposite of what I expected to see from Portland...they weren't aggressive physically and took a lot of bad penalties (well so did the bears for that matter). All in all the Bears performed better when it mattered and pretty much took control of the series tonight and set the tone for tomorrow's game.

Konopka saw his 24 game point streak come to an end and being that he's carried the Portland team now for weeks he let his frustration get the best of him at the end of the game. Gordon and Kane were in his face all night and if the Bears shut him down they for all intents have shut down the Pirates.

Not that I think Portland was totally outplayed but they were smoked on special teams and if the games are going to be called this tight I honestly don't think Portland's PP/PK hold up at all to Hershey's.
