#Pens lines in morning skate:
Guentzel-Crosby-Rust
Hagelin-Malkin-Hornqvist
Sheary-Brassard-Kessel
Kuhnhackl-Sheahan-Simon

Is it any coincidence that Rust has gone absolutely quiet since being put with Sid?
Look I get rewarding players for hard work and promoting them and Rust has earned it, but he just does not go with Crosby

Hags- Geno- Horny
Rust - Brass - Kessell

Those lines WORK. We know they work. Don't fuck with them. Just worry about finding a combo for Sid...


Sullivan is far from perfect. Then again his team has been way too lazy too often this year.

Looking forward to this one. Been a hellish work week; I’ll be opening a nice red once I’m off the clock.

Cheers. If it wasn’t such a pain in the ass to get a 6-pack here in PGH, I’d be looking forward to opening one too

Jersey tilted the ice those last 7 minutes. Kinkaid has been a thorn in our side every time we faced him.

It’s getting better. Distributors can sell six packs and singles now.

Grocery stores can sell 6 and 12 packs if they follow a few dumb rules.

Another 30 years and we’ll have sensible beer laws.

That was a hell of a goal by Coleman but the Pens aren't finishing(yet) and the chances have been there most of the game. This Pens transition from offense to defense is like watching the Steelers secondary at times-losing guys up ice too many times.

Spotty call on Dumo.

What the hell is with Murray? Coleman’s goal was a great effort but hardly a good shot. Remove your head from your ass Murray

Period to period this team never fails to impress or disappoint.

Definitely not feeling a three-peat. Prove me wrong boys.

So let me declare that I’m in the Swissvale “I don’t know shit about hockey” club, but is it maybe time to acknowledge that Murray is a pretty average goalie. The guy gives up too much weak ass shit....
Please...someone show me that I’m wrong..

Where were the weak goals in that game? And that one handed backhand was sick.

Pens got a lot of chances and I thought actually effectively managed the Devils until it was 3-1 on some goals where you just tip your helmet to them.

That loss bothered me less than many. Good to fight back and get the point.

I’m not happy with Sheehan getting 5 min of ice time through halfway in the 3rd. He was playing great hockey before the trade and is rotting away now carrying Kuhnackl.

And thanks for asking- my mom is stable, hanging in there. Nursing home now.

As for beer: understand that I buy about 95% of my for-home alcohol purchases while grocery shopping at trader joe’s, and this is practically the only Trader Joe’s in the world that doesn’t sell alcohol.

He definitely has his moments, but I don't think any of us can say he hasn't come up strong in the last two playoff runs. Also, he may still be trying to knock off the rust from being out. You may be right, but going to give him a little more time. It's all about the playoffs now.

This definitely doesn't have the feel of the past two seasons, but since Sully hasn't yet lost a playoff series as Pens' coach, I'll keep trusting him to come up with something until the moment he doesn't.

He's earned that.

A lot of the third goal was on Murray-he wandered too far from his net and left it gapingly open.

What concerns me about this team is the lack of consistency. Like I said last night, from period to period you don't know what to expect.
The defensive coverage in transition has been an issue all year even when they were beating teams on a regular basis at Winter's end and before.
Glad to see that Crosby is more engaged the past week-that would go a long way to helping us keep our heads above water.
Don't know about the D corps being physical enough. Olieksiak came in and played really well his first few months. The past 4 weeks he has been average.
Where are all the points from Schultz? He was way better last year.
Letang is the poster child of the inconsistency that plagues this team. I don't think we are going to see the 'old' Letang again.


I believe that Sullivan's strengths are making adjustments in the playoffs. He has a knack for making the right change nearly every time the past two years.

I just hope that we don't get through these last few weeks playing average hockey and killing our chance at any home ice advantage. The way it is we are going to have to be road warriors(something they haven't been this year) to have any chance at winning it all again.
And the PK has to get better but not sure how that happens with the pieces there.
