The pens played much better once they fell behind 2-0, they need to bury those chances though. I wouldn't write this game off just yet...


PP was not good. No possession, no zone time.

Well, either they are doing what the coach says or are tuning him out, neither is good.


I have a hard time believing they are tuning him out and refusing to take the man who is parked there. They're clearly told to leave him alone. It's been that way for quite some time....and you know, seeing as it works so well.

For the record. Eaton was in the far corner going after the guy with the puck. Letang was the one behind the net.

I'm sure this is the case with every team, but when the Pens PP is off it's ugly as sin.

The U wrote:Not going to draw too many conclusions from this potential Conf Final since Malkin is out. I think our bottom six fears are reaffirmed tonight though against a good/deep Boston team.

Their 4th line is better than our 4th line and possibly better than our 3rd line. Their 3rd line is better than our 4th and 3rd line.

I don't see us getting physically manhandled (yet) as I had expected but I do see that we have 4 forwards on the roster that don't bring much to the table. You can't have that many passengers on a deep playoff run.

The saying goes "in the playoffs the team with the best 3rd line wins". If you believe that, Shero has work to do.


I agree with this whole post.

They need to start playing in smaller spaces. They cannot stretch the ice effectively right now.

Bylsma has no idea what you mean and wants more stretch passes.

Letang chased the puck to the left of the net. Eaton had just returned to try to make up the coverage after covering Marchand in the corner.

There are posters on this board I'd rather be the ones taking that shot instead of Kennedy.
