In sum, it was a sloppy game, not pretty, but a win is a win.

Beat the two best teams in the NHL within a week by just scoring more than them, defense be damned.

Okay, this game is now in the books. I and they had to move on from playing Flower in PGH. It was bizarre.
2 points moving up!

Good Lord, we played the best team in the NHL who’s known for late game heroics and were more pissed we won ugly that we won at all. Comments like this from all of you is why we’re one of the most insufferable fanbases in the NHL who are never happy unless there unhappy.

Great win and great to see MAF back and proud to say I never once tried to run him out of town....unlike many on here who thought he was trash from 2009 until he was actually gone (remember the shutdown goalie controversy on this forum for example?)

I don't know, I think it is more that our Pens have been lucky enough to be spoiled with more generational talent on our team than most other teams.

So we have witnessed high levels of excellent hockey, in recent history, and when we fall short of that, our fans are probably more quick to criticize because we know we can be better considering we have witnessed it recently (back to back cups).

Also, we played terrible to start the year, so I think there is a higher level of urgency with our fanbase at this point in the season with big games, because we realize we have less margin for error. Everyone wants to see a legit opportunity for a three peat.

I don’t know that we’re one of the most insufferable fan bases in the league. Chicago, Philadelphia and Washington leap to my mind. Detroit... when they were good. And I think a message board skews thing, being a vocal minority of the larger fan base. But yes, some people could never get past 2012 in their perception of him, ignoring some really solid performances in later years. The unified love of MAF didn’t happen until he was taken by the VGK.

Actually, it is actually just not being blind sheep and not being fair weather fans. Critical of negatives even in good times, point out good things even in bad times. Wins and losses are not the end all, especially in the regular season. It's being a fan of the game, not just a baaaaaaa...
