I thought orpik made the right play staying on kessel. Kunitz left bozak to attack the guy with the puck since it was 4 on 3.

Probably should have let flower play the high guy and stay on bozak.

That's what I saw. No idea if even close to being how that should be played.

Originally, that was Kunitz's guy down low, then he wanders away from him and doesn't get the pass...I haven't read any messages but I assume they all blame Orpik, who makes a good read on the switch with Letang and he holds Kessel - a known shooter - at bay with good positioning. Letang takes his man to the net and sticks him, Kunitz takes the trailer behind Orpik and then he just abandons him...assuming the Penguins play more man than zone in their own end (even if they don't, it's hard to figure a good way to call for a switch there), if Kunitz sticks with his guy, nothing happens...

Just pre-empting assumed anti-Orpik propaganda...

Relax guys, Tyler Kennedy is going to shoot the Pens to a win. Assuming he can get one past the defender.

Because no other team has talent.Only the Penguins have talent,so if a team scores against us it's because someone on the Penguins doesn't care to try.

You make a valid point. But Orpik could have went down low and try to get his stick in the passing lane and let Kunitz take Kessel.

Just got home but from what i've heard and seen so far, they sure don't look interested, especially on the power(less) plays
