If their goaltending stays strong, I definitely agree.


You think so? When they get less than 15 shots a game?

That was all on our horrible PP and Giguere being on fire.

Way too much East/West from the Pens tonight. Never gave up on trying that and it cost them.

More like the Eastern Conference Finals against the Bruins.But I digress the Pens are still 7-2 and lost to a great team 1-0.This team will be that much better when Letang and Neal return.

Bit harsh, no?


No for real. They can't win faceoffs, they have no possession time at all. They gave up tons of quality chances. They took a bunch of retarded penalties. They looked like absolute horse **** and got bailed out by a goalie playing out of his mind. Seriously they have an average goal tending display tonight and they lose by a touchdown easily. They deserved nothing they got today other than their goalie. If that's how they've been winning games they are going nowhere. That was a pathetic display by them.

And Zero net front presence. Not one screened shot all night. It was downright pathetic.

Keith jones thought Colorado played patient? They were scrambling ALL NIGHT LONG. There was nothing patient about it.

Tough game, but nothing to be upset about. Beyond the awful power play percentage, the Pens played well. I actually thought the Pens outplayed everyone except Giguere.

The Pens played fine this evening; just got their butt handed to them by one player.

Games like this happen over the course of an 82 game season. Time to move on to the next one.

I think if Neal were healthy and playing the Pens win this game. I think he would have gotten one past him on the power play.

Colorado's goalie stole them the game. Happens all the time in this sport. Further analysis is just looking for somebody to blame for axe-grinding purposes.

I believe Letang would have done the same.

Let's see where the Avs are in Jan, they play an exhausting type of game, didn't see the entire gane but I never had that OMG what a save reaction to what JSG was doing, was he that smooth?

7-2 without Neal and Letang. I'll take it. I didn't think we'd be any better than 78-4 anyway.

Love Jay telestrating how Orpik is picking up the goal scorer while the tape clearly shows him backing up and screening Flower. $4M we will never get back.

He was the only reason they were in the game at all. Pens should have blown them out in the first period otherwise. Colorado had one good power play and did diddly squat the rest of the game.

This why I thought the Pens would wear them down in the 3rd. I was wiped out just watching them.
