I'm only singling them out because they've been our only consistently good line, but it was scary how much the Crosby line sucked today. Outside of a couple nice plays by Sid, they had no puck possession and couldn't create opportunities. They were just awful for their standards.

The Malkin line wasn't very good either. Their two goals were the result of complete Islander breakdowns. I think next game I would go with 9-87-12 and 14-71-18. It may be reactionary but what isn't tonight?

It's not reactionary. Iginla has been relatively invisible 5 on 5 with Malkin since he arrived. Kunitz proved last year he can play with Geno. Why not switch it up?

It's not like last year's series where we're getting obliterated. You can tell we're the more skilled team, we just made a few mistakes and are tied (yes, you read that right, we're tied) in the series.

We're still in the diver's seat.

Can you blame them? The proof stares everyone in the face when they look at tape.


That has to be humiliating to MAF.

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) :)

Encouraged by NYs lower shot totals. At this point it's about whether Vokoun can be just decent. If so...we will advance.

It's not the series standings that have people fired up. It's the manner in which the Pens have decided to conduct themselves in the past 3 games.

The series being tied 2-2 doesn't explain enough how disappointing this has been. Really, the fact that this is an even series in and of itself is a bad thing. There's no way this match-up should be this close after four. The Pens are actually lucky that it's tied because it's been all Islanders since game one. And the fact that it's tied doesn't help inspire confidence in this team moving forward, even if they're fortunate enough to find a way to turn this around and beat the Islanders. If the Islanders are doing this to the Pens, what are the Bruins or Capitals or Senators going to do? This isn't going to end well.

Bylsma and Fleury are likely going to be the scapegoats and they deserve plenty of their share of the blame when this ship finally sinks. But I think there's got to be more wrong with the rest of the team, maybe even including Crosby. It just makes no sense how a team with this talent and experience can appear, at least on the surface, to have such little urgency. Game two should have been enough of a wake-up call. They shouldn't have needed two more even worse efforts. I can't say enough how disappointed I am with how this team has changed since the Cup win. Every year in the playoffs I think less and less of these guys.

Watching Roenick reminds me of the "punchable face" thread. He has a very punchable face. I think that enhances, and not in a good way, some of the stuff he says.

It scares the crap out of me that if the pens win game 5, they have to go to Long Island to close it out.

The Penguins right now are the hockey version of "Schrodingers Cat", they can be thought of as both alive and dead. :pop:

And guess who has all the momentum and spark right now? And who has the self doubt? Not exactly what everyone expected. Obviously, the Pens are the most talented team, but they're playing like a bunch of clueless dunces. They were lucky to get a win in game 3. Isles could actually be up 3-1 right now after the way the Pens played in that game.

The fact that Crosby took a full slap shot to the throat and came back and played two shifts later would be so much more amazing if we won this game.

It scares the carp out of me that this series could easily be 3-1 Islanders and the Pens would be facing elimination.

This team is just so crazy. They are bat freaking in the head crazy. When pressure is high they collectively poop the bed.

I've stopped celebrating Penguin goals because I know the Islanders are going to inevitably score next and take over play.

That Penguin PP was really a missed opportunity to go up by 2 goals.
