The only thing I'm worried about is Bylsma's insistence to not get matchups. You are at home, get Crosby and Malkin away from Bergeron or Chara and out against Krug as much as possible.

Instead he puts Crosby against Bergeron all night and does nothing to keep either away from Chara.

I shudder to think of how often they'll see Chara once the Bruins get last change.


You do realize that how much ice time Chara is logging in these playoffs. If Bylsma would follow your idea then Crosby and Malkin might see about ten mins of ice time. Chara is out there a lot more than he isn't. They are going to have to fight through those battles.


I'm also not saying that his lack of matchups lost us the game, but it certainly makes the games easier to win when you at least get some good matchups.

There's a game within the game that needs to be addressed too.

I still loved our chances and the chances we held them to for the most part.

Wasn't surprised at all. Typical head case Malkin. Just like when he got dumped in the second period, he immediately gets up and goes and tries to decapitate Lucic.

Geno has to just skate away from that, knowing we had a PP to open the 3rd on fresh ice.

Just wasn't our night. No need to panic. Ice was horrific and we just didn't finish.

We did give up on getting the puck deep after the first goal.

He got their best PK'er off the ice. I'll take that tradeoff all day (even though we didn't score). We have plenty of guys who can score.


Malkin was one of few (maybe the only) forward with a pulse tonight. He needed to be out there, not in the penalty box for not just the power play but an additional 3 and a half minutes.

Bergeron took the 2nd best player in the league off the ice for the ensuing powerplay. I think the B's would take that tradeoff as well. I guess it's how you spin it.

I'd still contend that we had enough guys who could put the puck in the net on the ensuing PP, but with the way Rask was playing, I don't think it ultimately mattered either way we spin it.

yes he is a head case, and Bylsma is terrified to say boo to him about that. It has gone way beyond ridiculous how Bylsma just turns the cheek on that garbage.

Million dollar boy or not, Bylsma is the coach and needs to find a way to reach those guys without them crying and sticking their lip out.

We'll see a very determined and desperate team on Monday.

When will we hear anything about Cooke?

then I am sure the Bruins are going to celebrate even more. They got to Crosby enough that he is going to complain about the refs. Yeah, they are celebrating over that fore sure.

Yeah I don't get that either


If they didn't lose their focus, they better at least refocus and play better Monday. I thought they played real well in the first and parts of the second, but mailed it in, in the third. Shots were basically even and that should never happen with this team. You just have to be a little concerned about this loss. Home game with everyone rested and healthy and the team averaging over 4 goals per game gets blanked. Not sure I will be able to sleep Sunday night, what a huge game Monday has become.


Shots even with the Bruins?? I'll take that every single day. Our shooting percentage is like 11%--theirs is maybe 8%. That is a pretty wide margin, the difference between making a goalie look good and the same goalie being pulled.


We should have easily outshot the Bruins and dominated the game. We have a lot more offense than they do, but didn't show it much tonight. We should have hammered Rask till he broke, and not missing the net so much would help also.

Got that right. Too many times tonight the Pens were making that extra pass and is was too many passes. They passed up so many opportunities for a decent shot in the attempt of getting a better one...resulting in no shot completely :thumbdown: :thumbdown: :thumbdown:

Hard to get offense when you have to kill a 5 minute penalty (yeah, it was only 3 minutes, but that's a significant amount of time).

We missed a lot of 2nd opportunities off rebounds. Rask is just leaving them out there, and no one is there to pick it up. I think we would've had more shots had we gotten to those, but in the end, shot count doesn't really determine who outplayed who, IMO.

I don't like this move. Whining is for losers. Can't see blaming the refs for that loss. We had our chances on the PP but got absolutely nothing.

It wasn't really whining...

"It was just hard to gauge. Interference calls where you barely catch a guy, and then you’re allowing punches to the head. Are we going to play, or are we going to call those little things once in a while? It’s hard to get a temperature on the game when that stuff is going on. Then you let a few of those go and everything starts getting out of hand. We’ve just got to focus on playing."


I'd say he's spot on.

You do realize that many of the "missed shots" on net were likely because they were frustrated by not beating Rask early and then started to shoot for the corners trying to make the perfect shot resulting in a higher percentage of missed shots on net, right?

Kennedy gets lambasted on here for shooting too often into the goalie's chest, but guess what happens when you shoot for the corners folks...you miss the net a lot of times.

Good game. Pens played well enough to win. They just didn't have lady luck on their side tonight. They had a lot of posts, whiffs right in front, and glorious scoring chances. A couple of those usually go in. I didn't think the officiating was all that bad other than the 5 minute major and ejecting Cooke.

The only thing that I don't like to see is the run and gun trading odd man breaks that they reverted to many times during the game.

The Bruins are definitely a level above the Sens.

We could scrutinize the goals a little. I feel the first one TV should of had. The second one: terrible play by Eaton on the wall and then, WTF was Letang doing. Play the man there and no goal would have been scored. The third goal was another defensive breakdown. Everyone was following the puck. Two defensemen on one side and no one covering in front. Nisky and once again, Letang (who earned his -2).

Overall I'm not too worried. If we tighten up the D a little and keep getting the same kind of offensive chances, we'll be fine .

Cooke will not have a hearing for his second-period hit on McQuiad, which got him a major penalty.
