It certainly got things going in the wrong direction. I still can't believe they called that boarding.

I. Can't. Believe. It.

The playoffs are all about moments and that's a HUGE one in this series.

Said it earlier, if not for Letang, it's 0-0 at the midpoint.

Again just like for the Flyers it is just one game. The bottom line is we weren't going to go 16 and 0 and knew this was going to be a tough series. I'm as pissed as anyone but let's just suck it up and split in Philly

The refs were horrible but bottom line is the Flyers reverted to stupidity and the Pens powerplay didn't make them pay when the refs did make the correct calls.

This game was lost on special teams.

The Pens will bounce back like they always do.

Funny how they didn't call that one embellishment. Funny, as in Tim Peel gets paid to referee funny.

Or as Owly would say, Well Called Game!

No more maintenance days for Murray. Show up to practice or sit out next game. He needs the damn practice.

I believe he's a relative of someone on this forum. Not 100% sure though.

I can make a pretty good guess though.

It wasn't embellishment because it wasn't even a penalty.

Sid and Sully didn’t like the Giroux hit but someone here thinks they are wrong because he watched video of it.

It's a different game if Sid scores on the breakaway or with an empty net.

They did not bring their speed game. They allowed Philly to dictate.
One loss! Win Sunday!

Bad effort tonight. Against a vastly inferior team, after a 7-0 win, U cannot allow this team to believe they can win. Play shifts to Philly and Pens need to win next game...

I'm confident in saying he's put more goals in our net than the Flyers net.

It was a weird effort. They took what the Flyers gave them but didn't try for anything more. They owned the offensive zone and got rope-a-doped into stupid penalties.

The best predictor of a series outcome is the Game 2 winner. If the Pens lose Gamre 3, put a fork in them...

I agree. While the officiating did everything it could to alter this game against the Pens, this was still winnable despite all that. If PHL wins game 3, I say that is all she wrote. This team just does not instill me with confidence. This win one lose won crap is tiresome, and frankly they lost a game they absolutely needed to win against a team that honestly did not play that well. This is not the regular season, so if you are taking the night off even for one game, that is evidence of a major issue.

Ehhh Pens are the superior team. I don't buy this they have to win game _ crap. Any four wins will do.

Exactly. The Pens aren't phased by the ups and downs of playoff hockey. This was a mostly well played game by the Flyers but it's difficult (but not impossible) to see them winning three more in this fashion.

Penguins lost game 1 at home last year to a vastly inferior Senator team. Stuff happens, move on to game 3.

Giroux knew Letang was coming...you can see him turn his head after he sees him coming and then leap into him. He already had his hands up before Letang even hit the ice to make it seem like it was an accident.

It had no bearing on the outcome but still not happy with the hit.
