@Craig Ross @Con_Soul11 I blame the D more than I blame 29.

@Komrade Konfidence i thought it was right, im too lazy to go back and find the replay. Either way, if it was a left pad he would have had his glove hand on the ice and save the puck like a shortstop would.
@Craig Ross right pad save.......EDIT
@Craig Ross SO instead of 29 making a left pad save, you want him to reach across his body with his glove hand and make the save? sounds legit.
@Bing_87 @Con_Soul11 Is that where Jt Miller is from?
If we pull out a W tomorrow, hold onto your gluteus maximus
1st pd was meh. Yea its the Playoffs and ref's usually put away the whistles but 4PP's for the Rags in the 1st and we couldnt even get the calls blatant calls in our favor, perplexing. I'm still optimistic about the series in favor for the Pens. Other than a couple of plays and the Rags being a fast team, there wasnt a whole lot that stood out to make me think the Rags will make it past the 2nd rd. I'm OK with losing by 1 goal to a #1 seeded team with how the Pens have been playing.
How about an Honorable Mention for Billy G, that son-of-a-b has enough money to build a replica rink in his backyard.

What about 87's fight during the Columbus game, honorable mention at best? 87 only ever fights once every 35 years
Another thing I noticed last night with 4-5 mins left in the game, 71 could barely stand up but he didnt leave the ice, it led to a couple scoring chances by Ott. Get off the damn ice if your not able to do anything, your only making it worse by being out there.

I dont know what to think anymore, I want the Pens to win the next 2 games and make the playoffs but I know we wont make it past the 1st rd. On the other hand, if they dont make the playoffs, my changes of getting a stomach ulcer dramatically drops.
@Farnsworth Then 87 better have a sleepover with Babcock
I probably sound like the dude from Ancient Aliens with the blown out hair-do, but my only reasoning for this garbage is to hopefully make Babcock feel sorry for us and decide to coach us next season.
@LoranMannIsTheMan technically he lost the face off twice, the first face off a whistle was blown and the teams reset, and then he lost the face off again.
Sutter couldnt win a face off if he was the only one in the face off circle.
Lets not forget either, Pens with 0-3 on the PP.

Pens are playing this way because they want to get the Wild Card Spot, that can be the only explanation.
4 weeks, 1 day ago on Conversation @ http://thepensblog.com/2015-archives/gameday-74.html
@LoranMannIsTheMan I dont expect 87 to score every time he touches the puck, but when he's alone infront of the net and misses an open net, I expect a goal.

I dont get why Adams decided to drop the gloves with Ott. The team was up 2-0, why give the Blues an extra push by fighting?
Also, 87 misses an open net, yeah it was a backhand but c'mon man. I dont even want to talk about Bortz, Goc and Michalek.
Yet again #10 gets injured, Beau's bad luck with injuries must have rubbed off on #10.

Trade Sutter for Staal.......
When we traded Staal for Sutter I got horse whipped by 9/10 Pen fans because I expressed my opinion of how shitty the trade was. Everyones excuse was, "Look what we're getting for the price, beats Staal anyday of the week".

@Hibbits @tramp_stamp @Con_Soul11 Depres has 64 penalty minuets in 59 games, he doesnt even have a full NHL season under his belt. I'm not knocking 47 by no means but do you want this guy on your blueline come playoff time?
@Hibbits @hardtotell @Con_Soul11 All we heard this year is how 87 and 71 are in their prime, that there isnt a lot of time for another cup run. Why wait on that for a young defenseman? Lovejoy has evperience.
Lovejoy is 8 years older then Depres. 8 years more experienced, but also 8 years older.
Lovejoys 50 SOG's are nice, especially since the team would rather pass then shoot as of lately. I'de rather have Lovejoy on the blueline in a deep playoff run over Depres, Depres bad penalties and mediocre plays have been a concern.
IF Man-Bear-Pig scores a big goal in the playoffs against the Pens, I'll drop kick my TV.

Call me optimistic or just weird, but the team is pulling a 180, I can feel it. There are still those lazy turnovers here and there, but the overall play style and mood is changing. If we can beat the caps on Wednesday I'll be happier than a pig in shit.
@FuuManChuMan Yea, it was -10 in the way to work this morning.......SWIDT

I dont get upset anymore, whats the point? If it wasnt for 29 last night the score would have been 7-1, fans would have left way before the start of the 3rd.
Balls and weiners.
The team doesnt need to pick up another player, the team needs to start calling players out and holding them accountable. By the time we add a new player and Steigy discusses the guys family history all the way back to the 1800's, the playoffs are here. The team loses in the playoffs and then everyone's excuse is, 'Well, the new guy didnt have time to build any chemistry with his line mates".
We need to win games with the players we have, not trade for someone.

Anyone else notice Adams ball tap Perron after the OT win? Peron immediately puts his hand around Adams' neck, those crazy kids.

Side Note: Apparently a move is in motion to try and get 68 back.
I'll say it again, Pens went 0-6 because Hornqvist isnt there to pitch a tent infront of the opposing net. Putting 87 and 71 on the ice during Pk's is hit or miss, all that needs to happen is for one of them to take a puck to the ankle and guess what, Mike Kadar is living in Russia this summer bc 71 needs rehabbed.

Pens went 0-6 because 72 isnt there to post infront of the net. Calling it right now, tonights game will be a nail biter, the team will play out of their minds tonight. Always happens after we lose to a shitty team, (for the most part).

Hate to say this but if the playoffs started tomorrow, I dont think we could get past rd 1 if we had to play NYI, NYR, Bos, WASH or Philly. We have to win tonight, we cant afford to give up 2 more points, especially to a team that wont make the playoffs.
Go out there tonight, play fast and physical the entire game and ease up on the turnovers.
@YorkPens Craig Adams. 4th line PK guy, who somehow for as bad as he is has a +2 rating for the season and 101 hits, not counting his blocked shots.
