There is nothing wrong with being concerned if this style of play keeps up going into the playoffs. We've learned from the last few years that they've tended to have mental meltdowns as May rolls near.
And I agree 100% about the "THIS BOARD IS A JOKE IT'S HILARIOUS" stuff. There are people that are way over the top negative about everything, and of course they are annoying. On the flip side, there are people that are over the top pollyannas that stake their reputation on a "everything's cool mon" approach to the Pens.
I was fully expecting (perhaps even wanting) the streak to end soon. But the team has played like crap from top to bottom the last two games, and missing their stars is a peripheral reason for that. And I truly hope that Malkin finds the gear that he has been missing all season in the playoffs. I saw someone call him the dumbest player on the team last night, which is hardly true, but boy oh boy has he made some hilariously stupid decisions this year
