My worst was last season in Atlanta when Recchi scored the SO winner after being traded. Right when he stepped up to take the shot, I knew it was over. Karma won that night. Ugh.
Tell me about it, I was there as well. God that pissed me off, oh and then the next one I went to Crosby wasn't playing.
yeah, those games were not fun but the second one in late jan. was even worse. the first game crosby had two goals and lehtonen just got the tip of his glove on crosby's shootout attempt to keep it from going in and winning the game for the pens. the second game in atlanta was ten times worse, the pens had a legit goal called back, looked flat, and it was one of the few games that conklin lost. plus philips was like half full and there was no energy in the building. that call on ruutu for "kneeing" and the fighting major he got when he did not even throw a punch was some of the worst officiating I have ever seen. seeing that punk kovalchuk laying on the ice was the only redeeming moment all night.
the game when kovalchuk pointed at sid back in october of 2005 was pretty bad too. the pens came back to lose 6-4 but were down like 5-0 at one point. It was a home and home and nobody went after kovalchuk the next night like they should have. I have been to every game the pens have played in Atlanta since the thrashers have come into existence and this one was probably the worst. I was SURE that somebody would step up for sid but nobody did, except Talbot, and it was just disappointing to see a team with so little heart. Thank goodness things have changed so much since then.
