You know, this might have been a good thing to say. I haven't really seen SIDNEY CROSBY do anything tonight either.

If they can get a whistle after about 1 min on this PP they should call a timeout.

I like that call. Nothing to lose. Hopefully we get one 6-4.

If Gonchar gets to the puck sooner he doesn't need to take that penalty.

Gonchar is terrible. Alot of people praise his offense, but even on the PP he is terrible. He has to be one of the worst ever at being able to keep the puck at the blue line. Whenever he is faced with any pressure, he usually turns it over. He is terrified of getting hit.

One of the few times that I was actually into it, ahh...just **** this game to hell. If Gonchar hadn't shot it straight into the Canadien's legs, he wouldn't have had to rush back and take that penalty. One of the many bonheaded moves tonight. ****

2000, first round, game 6 comes readily to mind. Giveaway to Straka, series over. Sadly, when I heard about the signing, that was the only thing I could remember about Gonchar.

Ach, thought we'd almost got that one. :?

Gonchar looked dumb, but he saved the goal there -- and kudos for all the other guys who got saves :!:

Gonchar really needs to work on his shot selection. He can't keep trying to shoot through defenders like he has done all season. I want to know how many of his shots got blocked tonight.

No one cares that Welch scored on his own net? I mean, even Gonchar hasen't done that. (yet)

I live in Maryland so I get alot of Caps feeds. I watched Gonchar a good bit when he played for the Crapitals. I think he is even worse defensively now, compared to then. I say this for two reasons.

1. It looks to me as if Gonchar has lost a step, maybe two. He does not seem to skate nearly as fast now as he did back then.

2. When he played for the Craps, he played harder IMO, because he was not being payed a huge amount of money. Now that he signed this monster deal with the PENS, he just seems to be going through the motions of playing hockey, with very little passion.

Yeah, it was a bad mistake. No argument there. On the other hand, Welch is in his second NHL game. He's going to make big mistakes as a rookie defenseman, so while it's not excusable, it's understandable. Gonchar has no such excuse for his mistakes.

Gonchar's mistakes are a result of him being lazy and/or stupid. Welch's mistake was just an honest mistake, trying to do the right thing.

That's right, in the AHL they don't count goals shot into your own net. Just takes some time to adjust.

Welch minus the brainfart of putting the puck into his own net may have been the Pens best d-man tonight minus Melichar.

Har har.

You know what I meant. He probably got nervous and didn't think about where he was. It's a boneheaded move, but what does it cost us, a playoff berth?

Like I said, he's a rookie defenseman just getting his first shot at the big show. Rookie defensemen almost always make stupid mistakes. I guarantee you Welch won't ever make that particular mistake again.

I remember seeing Paul Coffey shoot the puck into his own net in a playoff game late in his career, so I'm not going to jump on Welch too hard for that.
