Agreed. This is the best they've played in the last 6. I'm more upset about the lack of penalties by the Caps. They committed multiple penalties and no calls.

In 2009, it was a coaching change and some big trades at the deadline. In 2012, all it would take is a healthy lineup.

Seriously, there's really nothing that can be done.....I think we over a third of our salary cap tied up in injured players....so were basically playing with a 40 million payroll in a sixty million plus league....Right now we're on par with Columbus.

Too kind. That dud cannot get out of town fast enough. He never hits, has turned into a giveaway machine this year and is an absolute joke offensively. He makes me pine for Hans Jonsson.

There is never an excuse for losing six games in a row. Never. And all in regulation mind you.

Great effort. Horrible scheme/strategy on offense.

If Shero doesn't do something before Saturday that speaks volumes.

If the team was completely healthy and was in the process of losing 6 in a row, I'd be way more miffed than I am now. Right now I just feel complete disbelief that this is happening.

You know - the pens have played somewhat poorly in that they can't put the puck in the net.
But I have to say - not that I think it really makes a difference - the officiating has been rot gut awful.

I as at the Ranger - and in bad in the game, and in the faceoff circles... just linesman being dicks all over... I'd love to see numbers on that, but in general - the officials have missed even the easy ones.

First of all, you cannot tell me with a straight face that the team on the ice tonight resembled the one the last five games.

Second, I overreact when I think there's a reason to actually be worried. Maybe I'm too much of an optimist, but I started watching as many games as I could in the 02-03 season, and this is nowhere near that bad. Letang should be skating next week, neal is still playing, and malkin is still dominant.

Third, if Vokoun didn't play out of this world, you cannot expect me to believe the Penguins don't at least tie this game. The effort tonight was very different from the past five games. It was for 60 minutes, and consistent. Sometimes, the bounces don't go your way, and that's just how it is.

I don't mean to come across as hyper-aggressive against you personally, I'm just baffled at the debbie downer mentality on the board. Sometimes more shows on the ice than the scoreboard, and this is case in point of that.

Just my two cents.

What would you suggest he do? This is just going to be a write off a year with the injuries....You can't overcome losing the top player in the league, your top defenseman who is so crucial to your transition game, it's unreal....and now your top penalty killing forward is gone....ever since this new
arena opened, this team is cursed.

Pens are beating themselves. Every game they give the other team at least one goal. Then they make the other goalie look like a brick wall.
