Maybe. But we have been driven made by this crap that shero and Bylsma have pushed on us. This is completw garbage we are seeing. This is a sweep. Can't play with a lead. Cant come from behind. This team is flawed.

Blow it up.


I agree. With Sid and Geno entering their prime years, we have a short window of time to win the cup, and this team is obviously not even close. Time to rethink the design of this team.

If the Pens go out in the first round I'm definitely considering a coaching change. I honestly am not sure what DB does. I think Granato coaches this team more then DB does....

This team hasn't found their identity since Sid has come back....what a joke...

Honestly starting to believe Max Talbot was the heart and soul of this team. Without him they are just an empty shell with no emotion, no drive, no will to win.

We score 5 goals and people are complaining that Geno and Sid aren't scoring enough...

What?

I'm sorry but when you let up 7 goals plus an empty netter it is not Crosby or Malkin's fault. It is DB and RS for building this lousy defense.

I kind of saw this coming, the way the team played when Sid came back. I don't know what changed, but it sure is disappointing. There's just no compete level in their own zone. I just don't get it.

He was around for Montreal and Tampa, by the way.

No, Max Talbot's absence isn't the reason for this. It's something far, far worse.

Offloading on this board with a bunch of other similar fans is the place to do it. I will probably be pissed another hour and then it is done.


I'm not pissed,I'm disappointed.The Pens playing with this much lack of focus against their biggest rival in the playoffs no less.But oh well,night everyone.

There is no point criticizing either. Philly has been abusing them. We just can't compete physically with them.

It is not Crosby or Malkins fault. We do not have a scoring problem. We have a defense problem. I literally feel sick. So much talent and 2 humiliating loses.

I'm going to watch game 3 knowing this series is far from over. I'm going to have faith that this team can dig themselves out of this hole like they have in the past. There's no other way to go about it. They're going to win this. Period. Arm chair coach it all you want, if you don't believe, I really don't know what the point of watching is.

Go Pens. It starts Sunday.

Henry Hank wrote:Series is over, folks. Bury your head in the sand if you want - honestly, I admire it. But it's not reality. The Flyers own the Pens, end of story. The Pens may have a better team on paper, but the Flyers are a better team on the ice. Simple as that. They just showed you why. They take the lead and they go into shutdown. They counter attack and put it away. The Pens get a lead and they let Flyers get behind their D. The Pens team D became a joke once Sid came back.

And no, it's not just one game. It's not even two games. The Flyers have owned the Pens all season. Think about how retched this is: the Pens have blown leads of two or more goals in four of the last five meetings between these teams.

The Flyers are the better team, but it's still a disgrace on the Pens' end. They put themselves in a position to be up 2-0 right now and they're going to go into Philly down 2-0. This has been coming for a long time. They stopped doing the little things that made some successful while Sid was out. It's a black mark on the coaching staff and the players that they couldn't address that over the last few weeks.

Philly is legit. They'd win the Cup if Bryzgalov doesn't blow it for them, which he can easily do to a good team that actually knows how to play D and play with a lead.


Series isn't over, but the Pens need to get to their game. The teams are evenly matched, regardless of what everyone was saying going into the series, but Philly is playing at the top of their game. The Pens don't look comfortable in their own skin. This is a series of confidence, and 100% of it is on the other side. If it doesn't change Sunday, the Pens are making tee times for Thursday morning.

I would trade both Martin and Michalek for Scuds at this point.

Sorry, but a Conn Smythe winner and a guy who ripped it up in a contract year are never immune from criticism.

Geno stops scoring when Sid is playing. I'm telling you, the "2 headed monster", it is not.

The defense of this team needs blown-up and re-made in the off season. They could also use a more defensive system to settle the games down.
