I'm sure there are a couple here who can find fault.

+Starpower in full effect tonight
+A composed Fleury looks like an entirely different goalie, he'd be elite if he could do that all the time
+The bottom-6 looked solid and gritty
+Comeau and Dupuis again
+Ehrhoff looked great, as did Maatta, Despres and Martin

-Letang needs to get off the PP. He can't complete a pass, can't catch a pass and can't shoot. He got lucky as hell tonight on his goal

Otherwise, there's not much to complain about.

+ Fleury
+ Malkin
+ Crosby
+ Letang outside of the PP
+ Kunitz actually tried
++++ Despres was a beast
+ Bottom 6 was solid all around.
+ Defense was solid all around

- Nobody did anything extremely stupid to get suspended

Would've liked to see a little retaliatory blood spilled at the end, but against an out of conference opponent I can understand why it wasn't.

Fantastic game boys, ++++ all around.

Anyone think Fleury has a shot at the all time wins record?

Nice game.
Shutdown the "best line in hockey".
Liked Downie and Comeau stepping to guys again.
That 3rd goal shift was just awesome.

There is no words to describe how much I love Hornqvist. This guy is EXACTLY what Sid needed.

Now, if you can only get a winger for Geno we would be in REALLY REALLY good shape. Bennett coming back and a trade would make us a dominant team.

Great allround effort tonight. Maatta is such a stud, we are REALLY gonna miss him.

Aaaaand he got that chance, tried it but his shot is soooo weak. So yeah he can definitely **** off now, right ?

If he stays on the team long term, he has a shot, yes.

+ for everyone and everything except a - for not *****ing with their stars. A big minus, actually.
But not to be too negative.
Great game.

Lots of positives, and one huge negative.

+ the defense...pretty much the whole damn group
+ K-C-H
+ Geno
+ MAF held it together
+ Downie...the only guy who at least tried to defend Sid and Geno

- TOTAL LACK OF PACK MENTALITY

Our stars get slashed and roughed up and the end result is even-up penalties. Then some goof like Adams comes out and takes a dumb penalty at the end of the game that accomplishes nothing.

"Cheap Shot Our Stars With Impunity" is practically on the Consol marquee in big, flashing neon letters.

Good game. I've got nothing to complain about. Do think we would need more size to beat them in a seven game series.

Idea that we should have spent the third period retaliating is dumbfounding to me. All the kings were doing in the third was trying to draw retaliatory penalties, knowing with a 6-2 pp differential, the first slash would never be called. If we had slashed back, I'm sure they were under orders to dive. That was not intimidation; they were pulling an 18 man Ruutu. You lose when you humor that.

For such an average goalie that's pretty awesome.

+first line
+Malkin
+Sutter
+every defenseman - Martin and - 1/2 Hoff
+++Despres

++++++++++++++++++FLOWER PLAYED SPECTACULAR

Sill, Comeau, Kuntiz AND DESPRES were particularly physical..

1 MORE GAME FOR MAATTA for a few weeks

WHAT A GREAT ********** GAME. Everyone played well and stood up for themselves and others when we were playing a bunch of cheep whack-a-wrist type of players

It was a very good game I'll grant you that. I'm just saying there are some people here who can find fault with just about anything.

I think you missed Downie going after Stoll several times.

I think it must be the apocalypse, because we agree on something vis a vis toughness. This was not the game or the game situation to be out there proving something.
