WBSpenguins.com has a feed, but beware...even as a Penguins fan their guy is the most biased son of a ***** I've ever heard.

Kris Beech scores to give the Penguins a 2-1 lead and LaBarbera is hurt. Had to be helped off the with 2 teammates and a trainer. Steve Valiquette in at goal now.

i may actually switch over to hartfords broadcast to hear from the other side. the pens announcer is very very very biased and overexagerates alot.

How did Labarbera get hurt and how serious is his injury?

I'm really worried, I hope LaBarbera's injury isn't serious.

Another thing I always wanted to know was how much of McGill's success should be attributed to Labarbera, I guess we will find out, I have a feeling McGill is not as great coach as stats show, I think that team lives and dies with Labarbera.

Just a little info on LaBarbera's health...

WILKES-BARRE, Pa. -- The Wolf Pack lost a game - and a MVP - Tuesday night.

Goalie Jason LaBarbera, all-everything this season, left with cramps in the third period after Kris Beech scored what proved to be the winning goal in the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins' 3-1 victory in the opener of the Eastern Conference finals before 6,812 at the steamy Wachovia Arena.

LaBarbera, the team and AHL MVP, lay on the ice several minutes after Beech converted Tomas Surovy's rebound for the Penguins' second power-play goal at 8:26 of the third period. Trainer Tim Macre massaged LaBarbera's left leg before defensemen Lawrence Nycholat and Bryce Lampman helped their goalie off the ice.

After treatments for nearly an hour after the game, LaBarbera was noncommittal about his injury. He was said to have started cramping in the second period and played through it until going down trying to stop Beech's shot that ended a team record eight-game playoff winning streak.

"I don't know what happened, but I feel good so there's nothing to worry about," LaBarbera said. "It was weird. Nobody hit me. That never happened before, but no big deal."

Coach Ryan McGill said LaBarbera was "fine, just a little dehydrated. He's not hurt. He'll play Thursday [in Game 2]."


I'm a little skeptical on how he really feels and if it'll happen again, but I guess we'll see on Thursday.

Yeah, I am very skeptical about McGills ability. Without Labarbera in net his record is pretty bad. None of the promising young players like Moore, Heerema, Stals, etc. have not developed like most thought they would.

Maybe the problem is that Stals and Heerema are just not that good. Moore played ok, but what are you expecting from him? Top-end, he is a 3rd/4th line center. It is not McGill that made Labarbera, but the other way around. McGill installed an air-tight system that masked any defects in Labarbera's game.
There have been numerous prospects that have elevated their game under McGill.

it is possible, but unlikely. Stals had a great camp, Heerema in the past 2 seasons had great numbers in AHL, Moore seemed like a great 2 way player who shouldn't have problems scoring in AHL. And if McGills system is so tight then why does he have a losing record with Valiquette, Osaer, and St.Germain in net?

Stals was never projected as a top line player or an A level prospect. Heerema has never been able to put it all together and reach his potential. Moore played well in stretches but was very inconsistent.

I'm not sure why you think all of this is McGill's fault. The goalies you mentioned are hardly AHL superstars, Valiquette is probably the best of the bunch and that's not saying much.

Come on, now. Osaer & St. Germain? Come on. Valiquette is not an NHL-caliber goalie. Heerema has now been wiaved by 2 teams. Calling Moore a great 2 way player is a little reach. We all like the kid, but if he puts it all together, he's a 3rd liner. If not, he's either a 4th liner or an AHL veteran. Stals has not been that good.

who said anything about NHL caliber goaltending? We are talking about AHL here. Heerema being waived does not take away from a fact that he was a very good scorer in AHL.

You are blatanly ignoring all the players that have performed very well under McGill and focusing on those who will likely never see the light of day of the NHL and some that are not even good AHL material.

This season, besides Wiseman and Labarbera, nobody really performed very well. The rest were either solid, or somewhat disappointing. So who did you have in mind?

I thought that Tyutin played really well. Lampman made very sound improvements from the beginning of the year to the end. Nycholat played well. Heck, he made Weller look like a borderline NHLer.
Every player brought up from Hartford played very well. Actually, they played a much more sound game than anyone with the big club. Murray really improved from the prior year. Like I said, too numerous to mention.
