I guess Sutter should have been on line 2 all along instead of on line 3. (Tonight)

Rematch this weekend will be nuts.

Got nothing from TK, Cooke, Adams, Vitale, Jeffrey, Glass yet still pulled off the win. I didnt think we'd be able to do that vs a deep Boston team. Very nice win.

I think the last ten mins of that game is what you're going to see this weekend. Physical and intense.

Oh well, what else can I expect from people who don't understand.

Agree.

Bottom six need to be upgraded badly. Its amazing, but Kennedy is getting worse with every game and Glass is just worthless.

I honestly believe the reason Sutter stayed with cooke and kennedy is to allow them to gel as a unit since Malkin isn't going to be out for an extended period of time. I think they are hoping that Jeffrey will somehow up his trade value too. First reason, though, I feel is 90% of the reason it was handled the way it was.

So glad it paid off for them


Yeah, those late stretch passes while trying to protect a lead against a team you DON'T want to ice the puck against (due to amazing faceoff numbers) were extremely smart!

Sutter is fine where he was.

A 24-15-48 line actually frightens me.

QFT. And yes, it's ridiculous to play Ain't go-nna get there over Despres. And we do need some depth. And a stronger defenseman and better PK. Champions have all of that. And I am not a hater. It was a great comeback win.

This was an impressive win by the Penguins for a plethora of reasons.

Once they went down 2-0, carrying the puck into the zone wasn't going to work in the face of that system. The Penguins decided to play it patient, stick to the game plan, and make a physical investment in the game.

They kept making the Bruins defense turn around, and the repeated punishment reaped some serious rewards when it mattered most. The Bruins D got abused in this game. It had the feeling from mid-second period on that if the Penguins could just solve Khudobin once, they'd open the floodgates. They did just that.

Great presence of mind by Sutter to cut straight into the passing lane on the Bruins and, more importantly, to take the shot once the Bruins defenseman laid down and completely took the passing lane to Sid away.

Make no mistake about it, this team's best defense is its ability to prolong pressure in the offensive zone and really punish the opposing team. During this 6 game run, the Penguins have knocked off two top teams in the East, Montreal and Boston. They've also beat a tricky and speedy Toronto club. And two teams that are right on the cusp in Philly and New York.

This is a pretty good hockey team.
