I was surprised Sullivan didn't challenge that goal. Probably wouldn't matter as it will take 4 or 5 to win this game anyway

I saw this game a few nights ago.

No choirboys on either side but Oshie doesn't have to do that to Letang.

Give credit to the Caps for staying in it and working a tie. The Pens let the Caps dictate play after going up 2 and the Caps took it.
Effort:
Crosby all game, Hagelin as well. Most of the other forwards, not so much.

Can you challenge a hand pass?

Kinda lousy period by pens. Maybe just on WAS 2nd goal, lots of lackluster skating leading up to Orlov coasting in and blasting one.

Have to win this game.

Malkin touched the pass on its way over. That’d have stood.

Not a defensive gem by any standard.

Is this an NBA game disguised as hockey?

Kessel 6-4

Malkin with a real nice defensive play in his end and up the ice they go.

This one isn't over.

Holtby clearly doesn't know whether to cry or wind his watch.

I don't know what the rest of yinz think, but Lipps is making a strong run for this seasons Pens MVP. Turned our season around with the game thread mojo he has go'in on.

All about the positive vibe, brother.

When you look for a reason to be negative, you’ll invariably find one.

Stay positive, and you’ll see the good things the team has to offer.

Can you give that a shot with stillers.com over there on the ZoneBlitz page?

That team is fucked. The Pens are Pittsburgh’s team and have been for a number of years now.

Pens need to keep winning and stay healthy. I think Sully has dialed in the lines. Oleksiak was an stellar pick up.

Like I said back in October-November...this is why I don’t pay any mind to how the team is doing until right about this time of year.

As bad as the team was through the 2017 season it is understandable to be critical.
They were no fun to watch-the compete level was sad. So much so that the coach seemed to be the only one who seemed pissed off.
Am I glad that they seem to have turned it around-fuck yes! Still though, it was disappointing and brutal to watch a championship caliber team sleep walk through the first half of the season.
I'll give praise when due and call them out when they aren't giving the effort.

Wow, it is easy to make such a proclamation months earlier then finally come around when the team is doing well to say 'I told you so.'


One last thing, 17 goals in 15 games-Malkin.
Hardly any of you are giving him any due. I get it.
I'm sure if Crosby were on this tear most of you would be making multiple trips to the store to get extra napkins because you squirted all over yourselves constantly.

I love Geno and appreciate how he’s said “fuck it” and turned this thing around almost by himself. And the best thing about Geno is that he seems like an awesome teammate. Immense talent and awesome teammate, can’t ask for more than that.

And Kessel doesn't get enough credit either. He carried the offensive load the first third + of the season and is still continuing his stellar play.
Not lost in all this is that Crosby has been on a real stretch of fine play as well. His point total the past three weeks is insane. Credit Sullivan for finding a way to get him going and I believe it started with Simon being given a spot next to the franchise.
Of course the big three want to be great and win championships-we have seen it for a long stretch right now.

What we saw Malkin do in January is something I doubt we ever see from him again, so I want to cherish it for as long as possible.

No doubt whatsoever the entire team is playing better. The late November through December stretch was bad. Worst hockey they have played since pre-Sully Disco Dan firing.

At just the right time...not only moving into playoff form, but enjoyable as hell watching this team after the Steelers swoon.

Hell...FOUR 3rd period goals last night, none of them an empty-netter.
