Game 20 vs FLA - Thoughts from the Morning After

Postby Penspal on Wed Feb 27, 2013 8:25 am

Pens lose 6-4

- Vokoun looks questionable a little too often for my liking :scared:
- Pens did not show the jump they usually do. Most of game lacked emotion (Engy woke the Pens up with big hit - NHL site vid clip calls it "The Right Engel :roll: "
- Stupid penalties are a huge part of the games the Pens have lost this year, this game is no exception
- Paul Martin's offensive skills have emerged.... I like it
- Glass is taking penalties and not getting ANY points.... Craig Adams at least scores (wow, did I really say that)
- Zebras were not good. How does Adams not get a cross checking call after Canes goal.... and Pens get a powerplay?
- Don't often fell that Bob & Steigy are "homers", but they seemed to overly favor the Pens in their call of this game.
- Another 5-3 against (see stupid penalties earlier). A different (VERY TIGHT) collapsed triangle and Pens PK'ers almost never broke it to pressure a lose/free puck
- Anyone else feel with Malkin in this game, it could have been a 9-8 score :o
- Bortuzzo kept his streak of falling down in a game alive

True, a really crappy way to break a winning streak

I wonder what would happen if Letang tried playing D versus roaming forward? There have been many times this season where I have wondered if he thinks more highly of his offensive skills than he actually has.

He just needs to watch himself on the PP to the set the record straight on that.

The Florida TV crew wouldn't let the Adams non-call go. And, man, do they like saying Huberdeau...

Vokoun is not good, but Fleury is worse...which is why he was given the loss.

Letang is becoming a serious defensive liability

I actually like the Florida Crew. Way better than Steigy and Bibs.

I've been able to get over Steigerwald's stupidity lately, but he said something so incorrect last night that infuriated me and I was screaming at the tv. Can't remember what it was anymore though, I think I blacked out from anger.

I kinda give Volkoun a pass for his poor performance in this game. While I'm sure he wanted to play well against his former club, I think the home cooking effect of being able to see his family after so much time on the road took it's toll. Like the first game at home for a team after a long road trip, distractions take their toll. I hope HCDB goes back to him on Thursday in Carolina, with Fleury starting in MTL on Saturday for shure.

I hate 5-3's. They should only be called if there is a clear infraction, not ticky-tack calls. I hated how both Tampa and the Pens were granted them on Monday and thought last night was horrendous as well. The league needs to NOT be a special teams scoring display in order to promote the game.

I can see how the Pens treated this one like a home game with more Penguin jerseys in the seats than FLA.

I know what you are talking about, but I forget that moment because I punched myself in the temple.

- Vokoun is a weird goalie. I can't get used to him at all and last night didn't help matters. Currently a waste of cap space IMO.
- Paul Martin.. need I say anything more?
- Getting really tired of the 5 on 3's. Dumb penalty after another.
- Powerplay is exciting for the first time in years.
- This was one of those weird games that I wasn't angry that they lost but I wouldn't have been excited if they had won.

My two cents:

Letang is a liability on the pp. Doesn't shoot and bad decisions.
Hands of glass.....enuff said
Vokoun is a drunken old fart
Kennedy is a waste of space
Neal is not a very smart playerand tends to be lazy
Shero's drafting is going to kill this team....They almost have to trade a big name player to get a few pieces to goanywhere in the playoffs
Bring back Michel Therrien

I would rather listen to Steigerwald x 100 than Pee-Air.

Who is the smartest and hardest working player in the history of the game in your opinion? Whoever it is, they have a hooking penalty.

No one. I can get them at a pretty good price too.
