Losing Cooke hurt a lot. Broke up what has been the Pens' best line lately.
I know some are upset about the hit on Talbot toward the end of the game but I thought it was alright. I was more angry about the two blatant trips the Canucks got away with in the last three minutes of the game. Just absurd.
Overall, I thought this game was boring. Just meh.
After the fight, dean martin and jerry lewis(
) took ~ 10 mins, it felt, to figure out the calls.
The players were coming onto the ice to keep legs loose. Then Luongo goes down...six mins of the 1st period must have taken 30 mins in real time.
Again, the the refs by calling everything in the 1st / 2nd and not in the 3rd affected the outcome of the game. Call every penalty the entire game or make no calls the entire game, that is all I ask of the refs.
Pens just weren't sharp enough this afternoon, to lift pucks over pads, a second or 2 slow in passing.
Brooks Orpik had a strong and physical game, maybe he doesn't fight often, to protect himself and his opponent.
Power play practice time coming up...
Sedins'; they're just an oddity. Good players for sure.
Loved Dean, the anthem singer, I don't think everybody did.
