it bothers me the players probably think it was just a few bad bounces but screw that. If they cant see that they are playing horrible i dont know what to say. This team is a mess right now i dont get it

In a series where speed seems to be a pretty big deal, the Penguins 2 fastest skaters (Vitale and Kennedy) are scratched. Glass and Adams haven't done anything wrong but you could sit them for 2 faster guys and boom, overall team speed is improved.

McDonald out? Who cares, pens can't get he puck into the isles zone for more than ten seconds at a time anyway.

Apparently there was a "We want the Cup" chant tonight. Now both cities have chanted for the Cup in round 1

I'm guessing Kennedy for Glass. I'll be surprised if Vitale gets in.

the speed improves for 2 guys that will be lucky to see 10 minutes of icetime, and a person who turns the puck over as much as anyone in tk.

not to mention, the only thing the pens have done well is kill penalties so we're going to remove 2 of our top pk's. yeah right.

I will just say one last thing before i go to bed.

1. Bylsma needs to grow a pair. Bench flower. Move Iginla to RW on Crosbys' line and put Kunitz back with Geno and Neal. Enough. If Crosby has an issue, tell him to STFU and STFD. This is about winning. Not being comfortable with your linemates.

2. Bylsma needs to have mandatory practices now. Enough with empty platitudes and saving your vets. That garbage can be reserved for Mike Tomlin. Not the Pens. There very well might not even be a game 7 if this keeps up.

3. The Players, especially Crosby, need to take the bull by the horns to tear into this team. Malkin needs to be taken in a room like Michel Therrien did and demand more. When this team got dysfunctional after the Montreal game, Vokoun stood up and told the team what was up. Time to do this again. If you aren't on board, you are benched. The end.

Also niskanen played almost 20 mins. Everytime he plays extended minutes we see why he isn't big money. I thought he was pretty bad tonight, especially early on.

He has been awful the past 2 games.

He's supposed to be the speedy "get the puck and move it out of the zone" guy on that 3rd pairing. He's been getting to pucks but turning them over at an alarming rate, forcing that Nisky/Murray pairing to be in their zone too much.

I just finished watching the game on DVR. Now I'm sick. WTFH!!!

It's last year all over again. Even if we squeak this series out, we'll get demolished by any competent NHL team.
Fleury needs benched.
Malkin has moments of brilliance along with moments of stupor.
Sid did not look himself tonight. I think that shot to the throat hurt him.
Iginla is not what we thought he was.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

I want to see Kennedy out there instead of Glass. We can use his speed.

I like what I've seen from Adams so he gets to stay.

Also, what's up with this "the ship is sinking" attitude. So the series is tied 2-2, no reason to freak out. The Canadiens should be the ones freaking out and lighting the team on fire.

As humiliating as last year was, he's topped it this year.

Honest to god, I'm a MAF fan (big time) and I've lost faith in him.

Old time "Yinzers" will know what I'm talking about when I say this, but MAF is the Penguin version of Steve Blass. (just make sure you give me credit if you repeat this) :)

I have zero confidence that this coaching staff will make the necessary changes in order to win this series. I just look at 2010, 2011, 2012, playoffs as the reasons why. Goes was beyond Fleury, although he's one of the problems.
