I want them to win on Tuesday and run over whomever comes next, and then repeat in the finals.

Did anyone catch Crosby cross checking the player non stop while he was on top of the pile at the end of the period? Did anyone catch Crosby give the old crown jewels a stab with his stick? (don't defend it because the player had his stick, he's just as guilty as others). Did anyone catch Crosby give Boyle a crosscheck in the kidneys 3 seconds before the end of the game?

Take off your black and gold glasses people, it's embarrassing when you look past these things and yet point out all the other things the other team does. We're just as guilty.


Crosby is a little crybaby.

Which hockey league do you guys follow? This is only "news" because Sidney Crosby doesn't normally do those things. But none are uncommon in NHL games. Again, Mario had his fits too. Sid is retaliating by doing the kind of things that get done to him all the time. He shouldn't, but it's not a big deal. And it's not why the Pens lost.

Crybaby? How old are you?

Weak fairweather fans. Pathetic.

Nope just pointing out that our team does cheap, unclassy things too. Don't throw stones.

I always want my team to win. Apparently you don't.


Yeah, I still don't get the "it's good if they lose 'cause Bylsma will (maybe) be gone" crowd

There is only one good outcome here. Victory.

Personally, I'd like to see Disco get a second ring and keep his job. Then make this team a little tougher to play against in the future.


Yes. The only correct answer here is: "WIN."

Pertinent to the question, I want the team to win Tuesday. I'll 1,000% take my chances against either Montreal or Boston.

BTW, the hype surrounding the Bruins has reached absurd levels. Boston's not out of their series yet. They've looked very human at times.

If we don't win Tuesday, I bet we'll see changes. But I'll never wish for losing in order to see them. Personally, I think that's weak. Just me.

Betting against the Pens in a game seven at home seems like free money to me.

Crosby needs another Bill Guerin on his line. They said Guerin was great at calming Sid down, loosening him up. He needs a veteran guy like that to play with him and Kunitz. I thought Iggy might be that guy last season, but apparently Sid didn't want him there because he's loyal to Dupuis and felt like he was cheating on him. Who could fill that role?

You mean a veteran presence like Iginla or Morrow. Yeah that really helped the grown man in his late 20's.

I went to bed after the 2nd period (yes, I'm a terrible fan)...I see that was the correct choice.

From that article:

Dan Bylsma tops the list, and there should be no question that he should.
Can anyone convince me why his job should be safe if a choke is completed?


Ok, let's hear it....

Oh Bill Guerin the guy that fought teammates in practice and wasn't considered to be a good locker room guy prior to coming to the Pens? Come on. Crosby is beyond needing a mentor. He's a seasoned veteran at this point and one of the highest paid individuals in his profession. If he needs someone to babysit him then the problems he has are much bigger than any of us think.

Yes you made the correct choice. It takes me 2 hours to unwind from a game like that. I wish game 7 was tonight.

I agree with you. That was a really hungry team that had a lot of heart and just came up a little short to the Wings at the end, but it sure wasn't from lack of effort or playing boneheaded hockey.

I haven't been wound up after a Penguin game since June, 2009. They haven't played a game in the playoffs since that has had me at the edge of my seat.

I should learn from you. It is regrettable but I continue have this attachment to the Pens that I cannot shake. At this point, it borders on the irrational.

I've been saying since the Philly meltdown that he should have been canned. Many defended him over and over throughout the years.

I'm curious to hear the supporters thoughts now. It's possible that he blows another 3-1 series lead, continues to have a losing record at home in the playoffs, and loses to a lower seed once again.

There's no defense for him if this happens. Heck, even if they win tomorrow, I don't think he should have saved his job.....save for a trip to the finals.
