I'm on board. Tickets please! Do you not understand the situation? We have a chance to win now. That is all that matters. What more can you ask for? Winning this round is enough for me to call him a savior. He wants a cup badly and he will shine.

the Pens played great Thursday. They woke up. That is why they won. Vokoun didn't show up and steal the game. He showed up and the rest of the team decided to play defense. He was solid. He did exactly what a backup goalie is supposed to do. Fleury will be back.

Tico Rick, I agree that we'll see Fleury again if we advance.

From Dejan's blog:

http://blog.triblive.com/dejan-kovacevic/

"In general, the Penguins’ room was about as calm/businesslike as I could recall before any playoff game since … wow, can’t even remember. Not sure what that might mean, just sharing.

"Strongest quote of the morning came from Bylsma when asked if his team is treating this like an elimination game: “That is our mentality, that we don’t have six periods, we have just three.' ”

LET'S GO, PENS!

Just a feeling. I have no problem with Vokoun playing again tonight- he definitely earned it. I think Bylsma rides the hot hand. If he has an off game, Fleury will be back the next game. Plus I am not comfortable potentially playing a 36 year old through 4 rounds. Yes, I know Brodeur did it, but Vokoun isn't Brodeur, and that isn't a slight on Vokoun in any way. I really think Fleury sitting and watching Vokoun's play is going to help. Watching good positional goaltending

MSG is playing the "highlights" of the 1975 0-3 playoff comeback by the Isles. :face:

Time for this team to show the killer instinct and take them out now. No need to go game 7 and get all nervy. If this team wants to go on a prolonged playoff run they don't need to go into game 7 the first round.

Take care of business and be done with them tonight...

Pens are averaging a 20.4 local rating on Root Sports for this series. This is more than double any American team in the playoffs. Would be interesting to see how this compares with Canadian teams' local ratings, but they may not use a comparible rating system.

Sorry, I thought you meant we'll see Fleury tonight. IMO, DB will ride Vokoun until he loses, so we'll see Fleury again, just not tonight - and hopefully not tomorrow night either, as the Pens won't have a game scheduled!

If the Pens stay off the boards and get center ice, I really like their chances.
