I love how the only time Perron appears remotely physical is on faceoffs before the puck drop.  Once play starts, he's as powerful as a fart in the wind.

If it wasn't so frustrating, I'd be impressed with how quickly this Pens team can crush our optimism.  From hope to hopeless in 40 minutes of play.

Maybe Lundqvist just dozed off from lack of activity and fell over.

Pens on pace for about 11 total SOG.  Catch the playoff fever!

@jovi0055 The refs just assessed a 5 minute major and game misconduct to that penguin

I guess the lesson we learned today is that we didn't take enough penalties in game 1.  I expect no less than 14 in game 3.

Over to ANA/WPG to see how the Ducks try and come to grips with trying to win a playoff series without perennial all-star Benjamin Lovejoy

Edited for stupidity.  I'm so used to the penalties being against us that I forgot what it means to be on the PP.

We're about 45 seconds away from a Downie penalty.  I can feel it

You can take the player out of Edmonton, but you can't take the Edmonton out of the player...

There is a 98% chance Fleury strangles someone to death in the locker room during the first intermission.

Maybe we should send Kunitz out to feebly bounce off of Backes a few times to let the Blues know the Pens won't be pushed around without consequences.

@DoorMatt Nope, never does.  I'm just sad it took me this long to catch the twin Fleury jerseys that pass behind them at the end of the gif.  That couple is even walking the same exact way (drink in right hand, left hand in pocket).  So fitting.

I have to conclude that people who incessantly complain about the Pens and their players are the same people who play NHL video games on the easiest difficulty setting as a stacked all-star team against no one but the Carolina Hurricanes.   "Waaah, we pay Sid and Malkin a lot of money and they STILL aren't netting a hat trick every game!  Sure, we're winning and racking up a lot of points, but what about MY expectations of how the team and its players should perform?  Shouldn't our 'so-called stars' be setting NHL records every night?"


In spite of a brand new NHL coach, continuing injury problems, and the fucking Mumps, the Penguins are the second best team in the league behind only the Ducks, who have played 3 more games than the Pens.  No, the Pens aren't perfect, but look around the league and try to show me another team you'd rather having playing in this city.


If you can watch the Pens play night in and night out and find nothing better to do than complain about it, then maybe being a hockey fan isn't for you.

The recent Flyers teams have been like some sick, twisted version of the Pens' first serious crush.  No matter how cool and collected you are around anyone else, as soon as you get around your crush, you become a bumbling, embarrassing mess.

i'm in no way condoning the 20 minute turd the Pens just left on the ice, but booing makes the fans seem like entitled buttholes.
