@datsyukian13 It was really deflating to watch that Wings/Yotes game. It was over after five minutes.
@LittleArtie He would start the celebration of his own death prematurely.
That image at the top with Moore screaming while Kennedy is in the background celebrating...what a picture.
@staplerova You know he'll study and prepare his ass off for Game 3 now. Just the type of player he is.

@staplerova They really know how to make intros, that's for damn sure.
Fleury was out walking his dog yesterday.
Saw a stat on Twitter earlier that since the lockout, 70% of teams that have won Game 2 went on to win the series. Now we all know that Pens are certainly capable of winning a series without winning Game 2, but it does put into perspective how important this game is.

@Paul Martins Summer PuCk I've always been more of a Futurama guy. I do own the first three seasons of Family Guy, though.
@Paul Martins Summer PuCk After seeing the same joke recycled over and over again through 7 seasons worth of episodes, anyone would be a zombie.
@Nassau=Gag @Paul Martins Summer PuCk @STFD His diving exhibition last night was embarrassing, to say the least.
I can't help but feel as though the PK is going to be huge tonight. After Tampa only got one PP in Game 1, I would expect them to get at least four chances tonight.
Gold help us all indeed.

Pens played better against the Devils trap last game than they had in quite some time; let's hope that continues tonight.

I continue to be impressed by Lovejoy's play as of late. Engo will probably still get the 6th spot if everyone is healthy, but Lovejoy is making his case to get some playing time come playoffs.

@OlTwoNiner @kkobers Asham at least showed he has a bit of a scoring touch, something that Talbot is sorely lacking. Talbot may be valuable on the PK, but I'm pretty confident that Staal/Adams/Dupuis/Cookie is good enough that Talbot isn't really needed there either.

FYI: Live press conference on the Pens website at 1pm with Shero and Bylsma to talk about the extension.
@zirky Thought he played one of his best games as a Penguin.

What a logjam we're about to have at forward (who would have ever thought). I mean, who do you even sit at this point? Connor would be the first canidate to make room for Kunitz obviously, but after that? Jeffrey will stay with the team the rest of the year, as he's probably our most consistent offensive player at the moment. Kennedy, for all his faults, has been scoring when no one else seems to be able to. Rupp has stepped his game up, Adams in invaluable on the PK, and even though Talbot has been anywhere from mediocre to awful at even strength, he still kills penalties and is "a voice in the locker room."
The numbers game might mean that even if they are healthy that Comrie and Asham don't see the ice unless there are more injuries.

@akus I'd rather not have to listen to Pierre gush about how much better the Caps defense is any more than I have to.
4 years, 1 month ago on LINK CITY: NYI Trip Info, Standings, Buffalo, NBA sucks, more...
Big game between the Caps and the Lightning tonight. Hoping the Caps can pull it off just because I'd rather face Tampa "Who needs defense" Bay, honestly.
On the positive side, it was nice to see all that work that the Pens put into beating the trap work well. Best I've seen the Pens play against a Lemaire-coached Devils in a long time.
On the other hand, this is a really tough game to swallow. Really disappointed that the refs would let so many obvious calls on both sides go all night, then call that weak shit in overtime. NHL officiating in a nutshell.
Staal needs to come alive here. I keep waiting for him to take the next step and its just not happening. Neal continues to work hard and get some decent looks, but the shots aren't going in for him. Letang just needs to not be an idiot.
Again, I'll take the point, but I'm getting tired of saying that.

Let's see if Bylsma can beat the Lemaire trap for once.
I'm not optimisitic about this game.

When I saw that the Pens hadn't won a game in regulation since Feb. 4, I sort of just sank back into my chair. This team is fighting its ass off every night, but the execution is just not there. If not for Fleury, we'd probably be looking at a team fighting for its playoff lives. Instead, we can go .500 the rest of the way and still probably get home ice for the first round.

I'm hoping against hope that Orpik's injury is not serious, but just from the way the puck hit his hand and then he didn't return, it sure seems likely that he broke something in his hand.
Getting pretty tired of losing close games.

Guess I'll just have to listen to Mike Lange via the Pens website for now.
@BTrain87 @2PaekShakur Yep. Actually had this same problem with last week's Pens/Islanders game as well. No clue why there aren't any streams; even the usual Pens streamers aren't touching this one right now.
@BTrain87 Having trouble finding one as well.
I always give Devils fans crap about not showing up to games, but then games like this happen and I'm reminded as to why I wouldn't go to games if I were them, either. Even when they win, its boring as hell.

I actually play for WVU and will be there on Saturday night. If any of you end up going, be sure to watch for the #13 on defense.

Well earned, and really, a great signing salary-wise by Shero. A center that has enough flexibility in his game to be moved up and down the line-up effectively for only $625k? I love it.
