He looks so gassed at all times.


Re-signing him is certainly not a priority, maybe not even a consideration. Only if he's willing to play for small change.


He's only 34... and he's not a fast player. Why do people seem to think every single player needs to fly around like Crosby, Kennedy, or Vitale? He's not a speed player.... he has drawn so many penalties for the pens in the playoffs... you people need to open your eyes and realize how much he is doing for this team. Not to mention at the end of this game killing as much time he did in the corner.. and scoring the game winning goal. It's not all points people. Christ. Stop doubting Morrow.

Maata and Harrington on TV now in the Memorial Cup. It'll be nice to watch 3 future D men in this tournament.

That was choke-hold shift by #10 to crush any late game charge by the Sens. I'd really like to see him play with a real center....


Morrow is tougher than leather


Morrow's found his niche on this team as a crash-and-bang 3rd liner.


Except jussi jokinen saw as much ice time as him tonight (and yes I know he was a scratch)

Haven't the Pens blown a 3rd period lead only once all year? Against the Isles in Game 3?

I know that was a sloppy goal to make the score close, but the Sens never threatened after that. I don't worry about the team's ability to close games.

If you were criticizing MAF after games 2 and 3 last series, but not criticizing TV after this one, I'm thinking that you just don't like Fleury. TV looked worse in this game than Fleury did in any game but game 4 against the Isles. Vokoun is losing steam...and fast. If you go with him in game 3, he's got to have a short leash. He let in a horribly soft goal, a momentum sucking goal 40secs after we took a 2 goal lead, and a goal when he was 15 feet outside of his net. He also made 2 huge saves, but wasn't really challenged most of the night. If he's not going to be better than that, then he's not the answer for the Pens moving forward.

I'm pretty bad with my negativity and I admit that...but you're in a big time complaining mood.

I think you're trying to start some sort of message board brawl. Lol.

Yeah, the Pens have been the best team in one goal games all year, Ottawa couldn't even pull Lehner until like 45 seconds left, exceptional defensive effort there.

Losing steam and fast? He's given up 4 goals so far in this series, what the hell are you talking about? Also, Fleury gets criticized more quickly because he has a save percentage below .900 the past four years and is 1-3 in those series.

All the talk from Ottawa about how much better they would be tonight, and they surrender 42 shots and their starting goaltender gets the hook. If the Pens would have connected on a few of the chances they usually bury, this game could have been 8-3.

Even if Ottawa plays better, the Pens could easily elevate their game as well. If this is the best Ottawa has, this won't be a very long series.

Ottawa's just not all that great. They scratched and clawed all year to squeak in because of great coaching and goaltending. In an 82 game schedule, the Flyers or Devils would have probably taken their spot. This is the 1st round series we were expecting happening in the 2nd round.

:face:

3 goals in this game...2 of which were 'bad', and the other was 40 seconds after Crosby's HT (momentum sucking). He was fumbling pucks right at him, and somehow lost the ability to play the puck behind the net...turning the puck over or putting his D in bad positions. He was excellent on the 2 big saves he made tonight, but he was outplayed by a 21 year old at the other end.

Again, if you were critical of MAF after 2 and 3 last series, how can you not be hard on TV tonight?

Because the Pens won and have firm control of a series that can bring them to the ECF?

Better tonight. Had a bit more flow.

Pens zone exit was awful. Sens have their forecheck working very well.

Sutter and Engellend should be out. Joos and Despres in.

I'm with you here. I'm fine with riding Vokoun until he loses, but he looked dangerously close to blowing this numerous times tonight for the team. For every excuse of someone saying "Well he made this stop!", Fleury makes about 3-4 of them. Everyone here knows Fleury's numbers after being benched/pulled...I don't even know why it's a concern at this point. The defense played like absolute crap in games 2-4 vs the Isles and have been significantly better since. This is no coincidence, it's happened every single time Fleury's gotten shelled and the backup's followed him throughout his career. The team plays tighter defense during those occasions, as they should, and people get in this "our backups are gods" mindset that Pittsburgh sports has that they somehow are better than our starters.

In NOT ONE of those goals did he score on himself. That alone makes him better than Fleury. And there were several huge saves, and a save % (fraction, actually) over 0.900.
