It's a terrible matchup for the Pens. If that's the first round matchup, I don't think I'm going to be too happy.

5 pucks they shot at MAF have ended up in the net.

Please let's not overreact just because the Pens are not sufficiently motivated against a lousy team.

Our team defense has been atrocious since 87's return.



um... it becomes a trend when it happens more than 2 times in like over 30 games.. :pop:


Fleury has been bailing their asses out a ton lately - not so much tonight.

well you see a guy playing for the islanders takes this thing made of rubber, and with sheer force and will shoots that object into some type of netting. This happened 5 times... :pop:

They are giving up a gazillions chances nightly. You cannot be thrilled with that trend.

You also can't expect MAF to stand on his head every single game. They are leaving him out to dry. He's been our MVP (next to Geno of course), but he won't be able to keep that up.

Thanks, NAN.

Is it Goaltending, or is it team defense, or is it lack of effort?

:D I'd say a combined effort of suckitude between the D and MAF. Just a bad game.

defensively? They've had at least 5 as far as quality scoring chances are concerned.

I'm not worried about their offense. Their defense is REALLY starting to scare me.

Pretty much. MAF's had a terrible night, and the Penguins are playing their typical "lack of defense" hockey.

Spoiler:
And I bet the Pens in Pro-Line tonight... KISS OF DEATH! How do you think Detroit's home win streak got broke earlier this season? ;)

Hence why these type of games are called wake up games. To get you out of a "we can do no wrong mentality"

The "it's just one game crowd" - it's really not just one game, they've been sloppy with D for a while now and it's starting to bite them. This is the third game in the last week they've given up four or more goals. It's a legitimate concern for this team, they need to tighten things up before the playoffs, especially since they're likely headed to a match-up with one of the few teams that can hang with them offensively. It's aggravating that they're losing a game to a crappy team when they desperately need the points to win the division, but that's secondary. I just want to see them playing good hockey going into the playoffs. Fortunately, they've still got a handful left after this to pull it together. This was bound to happen after the big winning streak, now they need to get re-focused.

The D really isn't playing much different than they have been, it's just that MAF hasn't been sharp - so he hasn't bailed them out tonight.

Fleury's out, hopefully not because of the collision.

Honestly, I personally think this is the case. There is ebb and flow all through out the season. They are in a lull right now and have been for the past few games. Fortunatley most of those were wins. Key is to refocus and hit that hot streak of sound hockey in the next two weeks.
