TK 2 chances to get it deep, and just like his three chances to clear earlier, complete utter failure.

Trying to flip the switch off and then back on usually means lights out.


:face: they are not even playing bad


Did you even watch the third period? They were horrible. Giving the puck away every chance they could. Also, please start Vokoun for the playoffs. He's better statistically for his career and for this year, and clearly wins the eye test as well.

Ah, whatever. The Pens are just trying to preserve their bodies at this point.

So the Devils and Sabres are the only teams to have beat us in a season series unless the Canes beat us Saturday.

Thankfully none of them made the playoffs. 25% of our losses came from the Devils, that's funny.

Well....hope the Pens are not falling into their traditional end-of-season funk......get a 2 goal lead, slack off, give up a couple of goals, then lose it at the end.

Poor discipline. Champions do NOT play that way.

People should let Malkin know the Pens could use an elite talent like him.

This doesn't mean anything. The Pens clearly didn't give 100 percent. They number one goal right now is to stay healthy. No big deal.

Skill guys get back (Malkin, Letang) or close to back (Neal, Martin) and the team stops playing hockey. Almost the same thing as last year, except they already had glaring holes that only got magnified when Crosby came back.

Malkin needs to get surgery on his shoulder this season and go rehab with kadar and then come back and win the scoring title

Hurt or not...but just having "good jump" isn't good enough for his talents.

I'd have liked the Pens to have played better against a team who played like they had a playoff spot on the line. But, yeah, meaningless. I'm impressed with how NJ didn't give up. Good for them. But I'm so, so glad none of our guys got hurt.

I hope these slot-machine line combos were just experimenting. I don't believe HCDB when he said what lines we're going to use in the POs.

Iginla won't be with Malkin in the postseason so the fact that they don't gel is ok.

Malkin was one of the few Pens to show up tonight. But his line looked like they were down a man the whole game.

Neal will be coming back to play with Malkin; that's a good thing. But Malkin has to shoot every now and then to be effective. I think his shoulder is still hurt. Also, getting Crosby back will be huge -- if he doesn't get hurt again right away due to trying to play the same physical game without getting his full strength back.

Maybe Bylsma needs to reduce his minutes a bit in the next game to preserve him a bit if he is hurt still and to send a message that his level of play is unacceptable. Forget egos. But Bylsma wont do that, unfortunately.
