Staal wasn't ready for that pass.


I'm NO Whit fan, but Staal is building a track record of folding under the pressure. Simple things, taking a pass, knowing if the puck is even still on his stick, he's blown a few of his own tires.


Not that Staal couldn't have done better with it, but I thought the pass was a little behind him.


Like I said... track record. Unfortunately, they're so glaring because it's usually a high pressure situation. Wrong place, wrong time? The spotlight's on him during those moments. We all expected the pass, why didn't Jordan? I'm not giving up on him, but his confidence really seems to be waning.

A question to Center Ice subscribers: how many other US teams air non-hockey programming during intermissions?

This irks me. :?

Dagny I agree. But that could have been a shot that even if it doesnt go in, there are three guys there for a rebound.


Amen! I guess they're just not used to actually having players in position to pick up a rebound. :wink: :lol:

You didn't? With this team it comes as a suprise when someone actually takes a shot *instead* of trying another pass... :lol:

Nah... they NEVER pass the puck when they can shoot from in front of the goal with 2 men supporting to pick up the junk...

Yeah... I expected a pass... :P

If Pittsburgh plays the third period like they did the latter half of the second period, the Penguins will win this game.

In that situation, I did. :D If you are a defensmen who is going to go into scoring postion then shooting is usually what happens when you get that puck. I guess the next time I see #19 I'll expect a 100 MPH 5 foot pass next time.

have the pens earned a comeback approval for this game or did they just get lucky with those 2 goals and will still lose and if they do lose by only 1 goal is it still an ok game or does the ugly play with a loss still mean a bad loss?

Since there wasn't a guy 3 feet in front of him I never expected him to shoot either.

Normally, you'd have been right, but you must have lost track of what team you were watching. They don't shoot when you expect them to. :lol:

Punctuation is your friend. But I'll take a stab at it and try to interpret your question and say....B, all of the above.

If they stay out of the box, they are the better hockey team on this night. They could still win it, in fact they could win it by 3 in regulation with acouple breaks.
