That's coming back, unless this was a HNIC and it was a team from Canada...

Love that phrase, "They take a look in TORONTO" and of course it counts.

If the other team scores before you announce your last goal maybe tone it down a little?

That's a good goal. I hate it, but it's a good goal.

Missed most of game. What is the issue tonight? Is the defense that bad? It seems like they give up a lot of goals this year. Are we missing Trevor Daley.

Listening to this CBC crew makes me long for the times when there are a lot fewer Canadian teams in the chase. Wish the NHL Network took the home feed tonight.

We're missing him and Kris Letang.

Gave up 2 in the first 2 minutes with everyone standing around waving sticks instead of taking bodies.

In order:

Taking lots of goals against, trouble scoring.
Yes, defence is that bad right now.
Yes, we're leaking goals all over.
Not especially.

People that need to come up big aren't. I can count on one hand the contributions to attempted scoring from Crosby and Malkin. I realise Geno scored and Crosby picked up an assist, but that's about all from 'em all game. Only Kessel seems on top of his game. Defensively I don't know where to begin. Switched out Jarry for DeSmith but we're not backing up our goaltenders. Tang, Cole, Hunwick not looking good. Dumo, Määttä, Ruhwedel mostly invisible.

Also, referees are using the Canadian rulebook tonight for icings and some other things. This is however in no way meant as excuse. It's only annoying to watch.

Oh and Sheahan scored a pretty one.

It's one way to light the lamp a few times during a Pens game.

What happened to Sheahan ? Only played 5 minutes.

Hornqvist still out ?

They don't have maple leafs on their jersey so no one is saying on HNIC

Can't give the Leafs a 3-0 lead and expect to win. Maybe they'll learn to start on time someday.
