If you are referring to Malkin being "open" you are dead wrong.


No I am refering to Whitney passing 6 feet in front og Gonchar 3 times so that Gonchar had to stretch out with his backhand just to get to the puck, and one pass behind Malkin when he was open in the corner area.


Oh that, yeah well on my tv, the camera man has the shakes and he is zoomed in 100000 times the norm. So other than the color of Biron's eyes I don't know what to say.


You could just say the truth and admit that Whitney F'd the pooch big time on that 5 on 3... but as it's not possible for you to say ANYTHING negative about Whitney...

Oh yeah, and when our top guys leave the ice on the PP, the Sabres PKers can relax, cause the rest is gonna be easy. According to those TSN jerks. Man... :roll:

All in all, I'm happy we're within a goal. But that 5 on 3 was frustrating to watch. How can they seriously expect to score when they just pass the puck around the perimeter? And I was disgusted with Gonchar's laziness going back to get the puck with about 30 seconds left in that 5 on 3. You don't get those opportunities very often. Get on your horse!

I hate to say it, but if this game were the first time I was watching the Pens, I might come to that conclusion too. :?

Sure I can. Ryan Whitney was ba...he was baaaa.... He did not play very goooooo...Dammit, you're right I can't say anything bad about Whitney.

Seriously though his passes were not crisp to Gonchar but regardless of that fact Gonchar did not have much of a shooting lane even on the 2-man adv. The Sabres had an easy time of it as the Penguins hoped beyond hope that they would forget about Malkin for that one split second.

The thing about that power play is that it was designed to get Malkin a shot from the high slot. Ouellet had that passing option and Whitney wanted to dish it too him too but the Sabres were ever mindful of those passing lanes to Malkin.

I think the Pens will switch up their next PP oppertunity and allow Sid to roam from low to the poinnt and maybe even send Whitney's big body through the crease just for some crazy misdirection. At least that's what I would do.

I didn't know we were on a 5 on 3 either. I was too busy wondering what happened to the movement I FINALLY started to see on the PP in the last game. Hopefully, they play a LOT better in the second. Gotta give Tbo credit for keeping it 1-0.

Our second power play unit is Moore-Thorburn-LeClair-Orpik-Scuderi. What did you expect them to say?

I'm sure Ovechkin and Kovalchuk have gone through periods without shots though.
