Man, I can't even be pissed right now. That was extremely entertaining. Don't think I've cheered like that for a game since... ****. Probably Game 7? Perhaps the Gold Medal Game in 2010?

I dunno. That was fun to watch though. They never quit.

That goal pretty much means Vokoun won't be playing in the playoffs at all, unless he seriously redeems himself between now and then.

Two questions I have:

Is it a goal when a player kicks a goalie's stick into the puck and it goes in?

Why do the Pens go full ruhtard when they play the Flyers?

Unless we play the flyers or devils in th layoffs


If we can't beat them then we don't deserve to win the cup. If that's the case, so be it. I'll wait to see if they beat us in a 7 game series before I make that call.

it was a carbon copy of the playoffs. it makes me feel ill that we still don't get it. so "comfortable" isn't my first reaction



I don't remember the flyers getting three ridiculous goals like they got tonight in the playoffs.


Me neither. I remember them getting like 8

Vokoun looked awful trying to get back into the net, really showed his age there as he should have been well rested.

The constant crashing of the net by the flyers is going to expose that, and the penguins do not have the defense to stop it. Of course your going to see goals going in off penguin sticks when the front of the net gets that crowded, not to mention the two harlam shake goals with no whistle.

That's why Martin is a better power play option IMHO.

Not even close.

How was that a carbon copy? You mean the horrible calls, Malkin's 1st goal that was in but not counted......TWO LATE whistles on Vokoun.... Malkin getting cross checked 10 times before losing his mind and going after that pippy lipped ***** Courterier?


Just a stupid, stupid game. And Vokoun loses his mind at the end and allows a stupid bank shot, probably exhausted from having to sit his ass on the puck for minutes before getting a whistle.



But NBC got what they wanted. "Rivalry night". Hopefully this didn't inspire the officials.

Entertaining game, but that's not the way they should be playing. When you get up 2-0 early in the game, that game has to be a win every time. Instead they start playing the way the flyers want to play. Obviously that doesn't work. The good news is I really don't think the flyers make the playoffs this year so should have to see them there.

He can't prevent his star players from taking stupid penalties. He takes timeouts at random occasions. He cannot teach his team to keep the lead. Ray Shero please do something about this mess. I just do not want the Pens to be in this "game" anymore.



I laugh at this. How the hell can a coach stop a player from taking stupid penalties? You can preach and plead and stress all you want but a dumb player will take a dumb penalty any time. Other than benching him (you gonna bench Geno? didn't think so.), you can't totally stop it. The players have to take it upon themselves to not be dumb.
