@PITTinNC If you call 1 penalty on an NHL team over the course of 2 games, you didn't do your job. Seems like even the refs are scared of the Pens power play. Don't get me wrong, it isn't the reason we lost the second game. But that very well could have been the game changer in the first and there were penalties to call.

When it comes down to it, MAF could have been better in net tonight. A couple of those goals looked stoppable. Then again, his D left him hanging out to dry as well. But it comes down to the shootout and well, he didn't look good there. Saturday night, bring it.

Ok, as dumb as that "let that sink in" picture is, I can't stop laughing at it. Lets go Pens.

Well that was just fucking brilliant right there. Made me feel like when I was a teenager watching the Pens.

@PittJosh81 Indeed. That commercial always weirds me out because she won't look directly at the camera. 100 bucks says when they were planning the commercial she or one of the commercial producers talked about her "good side" and they came up with that brilliant idea. When your commercial takes away from what you are selling, then it's a failure. Exception for those that have long established their business, their commercials are just reminders and entertainment. (i.e. Geico).

There are a hand full of regular season moments that I have witnessed that I will never forget. One just got added to that pile last night. Look at the Pens after the game was really over, it was like they won a playoff series. That is what this kind of swing will do that. This one goes up there with Billy Guerin scoring with 0.4 seconds left which also happened in November. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hU3v3yopqcc

I love you guys but this post is rather hypocritical. You guys hate it when the fans boo Jagr who helped the team get 2 Stanley Cups. But it's okay to trash Bylsma on a regular basis who had more influence in the Pens winning their 09 Cup than Jagr did in the 91-92 Cups. Personally I respect them both.

All these advanced stats really puts a damper on Craig's complaints of overpaid, lazy, whiny players. Keep this up and he might jump off the West End Bridge.

@atopolski You do realize that every sports franchise that has ever existed and ever had some run of success has been accused of having classless and arrogant fans, right? Your comment is honestly completely meaningless. Oh and news flash, neither Lemieux or Crosby did it alone. Team sport, bro. They had help.

I think I figured it out. Johnston's reactions aren't really that insetting. It's just that this blog was looking at emotionless Dan Byslma for so long, Mike Johnston looks like Dion Sanders in the end zone.

It's a good signing. Hell, it just might be a great signing. Because all you haters out there just don't realize how hard it is to come by a goalie like MAF, much less one better than him. You want better than MAF? Okay, first one needs to be available, then the team needs to sign him to $7-8 per year contract. Oh and there goes the Penguins depth as they dump some players to keep that super goalie. Just like quarterbacks in the NFL. Please piss and complain about how a good one isn't as good as someone else. But someone else isn't available nor is he cheap. By the way, super star goalies Lunquist, Miller, and Luongo all have something in common. What exactly is that?

You say the Letang mistake can't happen, it did. And it didn't cost the Pens the game. As I recall a Crosby mistake lead to a goal against and the eventual game loss earlier this season. The stars will make mistakes sometimes. Let's not get bent about it happening once in a while.

While this was clearly a men vs. boys game, it was still an NHL team and the Pens were flawless. They could have very easily let their guard down thinking the game was going to be a cake walk. Instead they dropped their balls on the chins of the Sabres, put up 3 more PP goals, and a shutout. The Pens have been lights out for the past week and damn isn't it fun?

Solid effort all around by the Pens last night. They scored when they had to on a very good defensive team and a really good goalie. The Pens power play continues to be unreal. And the really good news is that the PK is coming together. Pens were 30th in the league on PK, as of last night they were 21st. That is some good progress in just a few games.

I didn't like the idea of Steve Downie being on this team. But I have to admit, he did his job yesterday and it helped lead the team to a win. That check he put on that dude was epic.

@jonesmalaco I saw the slo-mo replay. It was clear that the puck coming off Malkin's stick was flat. Just after you see it passing Hornquist, it was wobbling. Clear sign that someone or something tipped it. But does it really matter? The goal was for the Pens and either way, Geno still got a point.

After seeing that goal waived off, I had a really bad feeling it was going to still cost us. That was a really bad call and Dallas was pissed. It put them on a mission which they clearly succeeded. Bad penalty Sid took at the end, even worse PK to try to stop it. That PK is so bad. It's hard to watch when we used to be #1 at it.

@Craig Ross You of all people has been the most delusional about this franchise. All you ever did was shit on it. Even during the high times, you went out if your way to find some negative. Now after 2 games you want to pound your chest and tell everyone how you were right and the Penguins are achieving a dream? Seriously, go fuck yourself, Craig. 2 games does not make for a dream, it simply makes for a good couple of moments. And where will you be when the Pens hit a 3 game losing streak this year? Right back where you were, shitting all over them. Don't insult the actual fans of this team by claiming you too are a fan. I honestly don't know what the hell you are other than a miserable person happy with seeing the failures of others. You really don't understand what it means to be a fan.

@LoranMannIsTheMann Sid didn't seem to have problems scoring goals under Bylsma before. Pretty sure it was that wrist injury they admitted to after they were eliminated. Bylsma wasn't the answer for this team anymore, but he wasn't the reason Sid couldn't score last playoffs.

2-0 and no bridge jumpers to be seen anywhere. Feels pretty good. But I won't get too high. Sill, our PK is brutal. IMO that is the number 1 thing to fix. Not sure about Flower so far. He hasn't be meltdown terrible, but he is still far from his best right now. Hopefully that will come in time. But offense is fantastic. People love to see goals. The Pens already put up 11 in 2 games. Good lord.
