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.

@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.

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.
I was at the last Pens/Bruins game and the CEC was loud. Granted though, the Pens were playing good hockey that day, none of this lackadaisical stuff thats been happening the past 2 games.

Call it what you want, but watching the game yesterday I felt as though the players spent too much time on the South Side Saturday night. Spurts of playing hard and challenging the opposing players turned into, "meh, go ahead and take a shot on 29, I'm tired".Or, "here, take the puck because I dont feel like carrying it into the zone".
I've said this over the years, the Pens need a new strength and conditioning coach, Kadar isnt cutting it anymore. Granted, you cant foresee blood clots or concussions but if I remember correctly, the Rags have 54 man games lost to injuries. Pens are 5th in the league for man games lost, most of the teams a ways out of playoffs excluding Anaheim (248 Man games lost, 1st in WC)

@cblack66 and by laying down, you mean score 7 goals? After a dirty hit, players should automatically drop the gloves every time, thats what your're saying.
As a player, if you think your team needs a pick-me-up because they are showing zero enthusiasm on the bench is one thing, but fighting everytime there is a dirty is is another.
Thats like me bitching because my co-workers wont stand up for me when I get shafted by my boss.

Did Cookies hit on 10 ( I believe it was 10) knee-to-knee not justify dropping the gloves?
@cblack66 "thats a bold strategy there cotton"
@The Hockey Hooligan Adams hits Suter, Minn player hits Malkin, Bortz hits a Minn player, Minn player takes a run at 87. Boom, 87 is out 4-6 weeks.......No need to start a chain reaction when the Pens had the game in hand.
Scoring 7 goals, 5 after the penalty and forcing a new goalie is more of a retaliation than fighting.
That will hit you right in the feelers.......
