That's why Geno was jawing at the fans at the end.

... the optional skate is comical. It should be mandatory at this point. 3 games of playing like garbage. Just unbelievable.

that's another fun thing to think about. everything about the islanders organization is absolutely repulsive. their fans are the biggest pieces of **** on the planet, their organization tells their players to flat out assault people, matt martin's face...it goes on. and we're handing all these people their best moment in 20 years. yaaaaaay, pride!!

It may be optional, but do you really think anyone dares not to take part?

I sure hope not. If they do they should be benched.

I guess it's just the fact that it is optional. There shouldn't be an option. Every player should be there and be ready to work to fix what's wrong.

I certainly would not have made today and optional day, even with the travel last night. This team needs their butts kicked by the coaching staff.

Well, that was a nasty bit of work. The only positive I can take from it is that going forward the Pens should have the potential advantage of being the more desperate team...at least I hope they are feeling desperate, very desperate, and play accordingly. I agree with some of the other posters that getting angry isn’t the answer. We’ve all seen where that leads and it isn’t the destination that anyone wants.

The Islanders are in total kamikaze mode right now and we are not making them pay.

Imagine Duke playing a #16 seed in the first round of the tourney. This team comes out to play 40 minutes of full court press. Perhaps they get a couple of quick turnovers and scores. Coach K calls a time out and tells his infinately more skilled team "hey, they are doing X so we should start doing Y". Post correction, the #16 seed has to change because the superior team has adjusted and is making them pay for their aggressiveness.

Mind you this recognition and adjustment happens within a 5 minute stretch of a single elimination tournament game.

Imagine this same coach not making the adjustment after five minutes, or a half, or a game, our a series of games, or a similar series of games the following season.

You don't have to imagine, like me you are living it.

Its kinda hard to imagine the Pens getting out of this round.

If we don't see Vokoun, and dont see 9-87-12, 14-71-18, then DB is officially garbage and they should take his Cup ring and give it to FHCMT.

Any guess on when a possible Sunday game would happen?
It's not scheduled to be on NBC proper, so I guess at night?

I won't be able to watch Saturday's game....I suppose if they go down in flames, I'd rather hear it than see it.

I was under the impression it would be a noon game. Hope I'm wrong.

Sorry if this has been mentioned, but on NHL Network, they said it's been 40GA in Fleury's last 10 playoffs games. Are you kidding me?

Are you saying they are supposed to play Saturday in LI, then Sunday in Pittsburgh?

I, personally, would also be tempted to reunite the Morrow-Jokinen-Bennett line. That line showed immediate chemistry during the regular season, but I would also hate to diminish Cooke's role. Phantom penalties aside, he's been one of the team's best, most consistent performers this series, and the only one who has displayed constant playoff intensity.
