stunning,
more sustained offense with 8, 71, 87 playing together

Maybe next game he will put them together down only 2

wow buffalo is fast that last shift looked like they were on the pp and they weren't just awesome puck control. maybe MT should tape this game and have the boys watch it tomorrow, buffalo is doing some good things the pens could learn from them.


Don't forget, though...the core of this Buffalo team has been together for quite a few years now. There's also a slew of younger guys on their roster who all pretty much played together at Rochester and came up to Buffalo around relatively the same time. Chemistry like that goes a long way in this game, especially when your roster is filled out with guys who play their roles very well within that system.

Oh okay.


What's that supposed to mean? Yes, I would rather lose now and have Crosby, Malkin, Fluery, and Staal to cheer for than...um the Buffalo "choking city" Sabres. They're good but who cares!

So basically, the game isn't over yet. But, if we get another full duration power-play and don't score, I'll probably kill myself.

so are you trying to tell me to be patient and in 3 or 4 yrs. our young, talented team, after having time together will do the same thing. Well maybe i'm just to impatient and don't want to wait i want it now. it's all about me you know. :lol:

not to change topics but Crosby loves to check the boards when he scores.

It depends on how comes up next in his special deck of cards. He has Dana Heinze shuffle them, then he picks three cards at random and sends those guy over the boards. :lol:

If you want to try and keep up with Crazy Coach T, take a look at the NHL.com shift chart for this game.

And what point do we start scratching LeClair? When Petrovicky returns, he's the guy I'd scratch. Not Ruutu, not Thorburn, not Armstrong.

How about LeClair!

He doesn't kill penalties, he doesn't hit, but he does fall down in open ice turning the puck over which results in a goal.

I've never seen a guy fall down more without anyone around him.

Why in the hell is Leclair even on the ice? The guy is a complete joke. Thankfully this time he just coughed the puck up that led to a goal, instead of injuring one of his teammates instead. GRRRRR!!!!

He is in pretty good shape. In fact, he could kick this entire message boards arse just by thinking about it. :shock:

Amen. I have totally had it with LeClair. You know what else? I am taking away his capital "C". Leclair. How do you like that!!! JOHNNY! :twisted:

You would think that someone in the media that covers the Pens would ask WHY do you keep playing LeClair at Staal's expense.LeClair SUCKS OUTLOUD!!! If he was a horse he would of been shot years ago :evil: :twisted: :twisted: :evil:

HOLY CRAP!!! FSP showed hockey highlights during the intermission. :shock:

The bad news is that Paul Alexander did the highlight play-by-play. The pace of his call is never on with the actual play and he screws up every other name involved.
