That was great Hatcher gets stoned by Sid at the blue, then he cant put it in on a open net!

Screw you Hatch :lol:

Hatcher with a wide open net and can't find the puck between his feet. :roll:

This is going to be the best Flyer's defense unless they move Kapanen and Nedved to a team desperate for some scoring help who have a surplus of defensemen.

I'm surprised that the Flyers haven't tried fighting any of the Pens yet.

Are you sure this is the Flyers we're playing?

Solid? Yes. But I expect more than solid from him.

Center is a more difficult position. He's an OK center on a bad team but a bad center on an OK team. I wouldn't mind seeing Staal get some time between Malone and Recchi if Malkin is going to be out longer than another 2 weeks.


He is not an NHL center. That's not negative is it? :(

Heck no considering how deep we are up the middle, but if he can play center in a pinch, that's a commodity.

That's what I'm saying... Gonchar has been staying out the whole power play, regardless of whether it was first or second unit playing. If it makes you feel better, I rewound the HD DVR... it was still Gonchar. 8)

Flyers know that we'll kick their tushies in if they go man to man, so they're resorting to cheap shots.

I defer to the guy with the tape... guess what though it's still 4-0 :)

I think it also has to do with the Ruutu factor that is they continue to cheap shot us and go too far that Ruutu will destroy Gagne on a clean hit.

If Staal keeps this up I'm all for a limited scoring line of Leclair, Staal and Ouellet and then we have Moore, Ruutu and Thorburn as a very solid checking line. Staal was one of our better PK'rs and everytime he's been on the ice he has caused a turnover.

Marc-Andre wore out their entire team over the 1st 2 periods. he almost single handedly demoralized their entire team. #1 star by far.

Pens are having an easy time of it in the 3rd, this is just beutiful, to me it's like _whao hot blond in row 8 -



anyways great game!

I agree. He's been a little unsure with the puck at times, but I think that will improve quickly with experience. He's done a whole heck of a lot right in this game, though.

MAF looked absolutely exhausted after the final horn. That's the most deserved Pens SO I've seen in a long, long time.

Kicksave, what class at RMU did you have? I had Intermediate Accounting. It should be called "watching paint dry."
