i'm glad they're letting them play, but seeing Gill being able to mug guys after they dump in brings back clutch and grab riding players to the boards memories that I don't really enjoy.

I'm also a bit annoyed that a 20 second 6 on 5 was never called.

yeah, at least doc and co are all over it. i'm sure bettman's frantically drafting a memo to them to shut up, that the league retains the right to not call too many men, because the intent was to prevent too many guys from being involved in scoring opportunities, not just having too many men on the ice because you're an idiot.

Reminds me of another game 3 when pens down 2-0.

One little, two little, three little penguins. Four little, five little, six little penguins.

I'm not against the trip. Stick was there. Adams played it right. Thought the orpik interference was a little sketchy. Funny seeing sid turn into a cross checking machine after the arm went up though. Of course they weren't going to give the 5 on 3 there against the pens.

the league's game stats are all over there being 6 guys on the ice. It's funny.

Got to love helm. What energy. What balance. What puck control. They let the pens get away with a few but had to call that.

That 7 aces commercial is so apprapro (sp) given the 6 pens skaters plus a goalie.

Quickly developing a mancrush for Helm. 5'11, 172lbs. WOW


Pens got some amazing non-calls in their favor early. Wings just breaking down defensively. Not having Datsyuk is a killer blow. Gotta say....not impressed with Hossa at all.

I have long feared that my sins would come back to haunt me, and the cost of the pens winning the cup is more than I can bear.


The pens have played pretty well I must say.

What a goal by Kronwall.

Brett Lebda has really impressed me this post-season. Nothing spectacular but quietly steady.

Classy by Pittsburgh to slash Datsyuk in the foot.

Getting pretty bad outside. Last year the power in my whole area went out the night of Pittsburgh losing the cup, so I missed the game. While I'd like the Penguins to lose the Stanley Cup tonight, I'd like to be able to see it.

Stupid. Tippett is a hell of a coach. Crawford... meh. Doesn't seem like much of a motivator. Also is too conservative on young guys. Not a good combo for Dallas imho.

But whatever gets him of HNIC.

wrt Scuderi. Always loved the guy. His stick is amazing especially as the 5-3 pkr down low. Glad to see his defensive aptitude get shown to the public for idiot flyer fans who poo poo'd him in their series. Well, not glad as I wanted those pucks to go in. Game of freakin inches. From posts to MAF's leg just pushing the puck to his right to Scuderi playing goalie at the end.
