NBC!! YAY!!!

</heavySarcasm>

If we drop this one, I'm handing thread duties to someone else. Have too much ground to make up to sit on a stale thread-starter. (Which will be known from here on out as "Keeping the Boswell")

Still irked by the loss to the Ducks. Should have won that game.

Winning tonight will make that go away.

Some will say that Wilson knocked Oleksiak flat but it goes farther than that. Wilson came with the intent on fighting and sometimes when you have that mentality you have a great advantage especially to start the game.
It was a nice punch but I don't think #6 was ready at all to fight.

I would like to see those two fight after both are prepared for such.

Not a good PP.
Top line never got it setup because of terrible TO's by Kessel and Crosby.

Maata and JJ are slow, turnover-generating bums. It’s just amazing to me how careless they are with the puck.

When your partner is JJ you are hamstrung. Maata is light years better than 73.

We talk about TO's all the time here on the board but the Caps were giving it up to us time and time again in their own end and we didn't get it done. Just another reason why the frustration with this team continues.

And Tom Wilson is such a fucking bitch. Fuck him and fuck the caps and their dumb fans.

Exactly the Pens played a great period and nothing to show for it.

How the hell didn’t we make a run at Jeff Skinner? Have I been under a rock? He’s got 25 goals?

Hopefully the Pens continue the forecheck and keep getting the chances. Malkin just needed another split second and he would have beaten Holtby. Crosby and Rust have been bank lately but Rust isn't a setup guy and he missed Sid twice in the first period when the Captain worked himself free in front of the net. That shit drives me batty.

Why does NBC keep the focus on the early fight? Wilson jumped Oleksiak and he won the fight-big deal. It figures that they can't talk about much else except the dinosaur part of the game.
Sports media is total shit.

Are you kidding me? Ovie hits Letang in the head and then he is 'taken' down by Rust who he out weighs by 30 pounds and they call that?

Come on NHL<

Because he's expensive, offers nothing defensively, and the Pens really didn't need another winger

Only Malkin and Crosby and do that. That was classic.
1-1

But for one crappy shift the pens have played a great game.

Finish strong and start a win streak in D.C.

Any idea what Crosby was yelling at the bench after the fight?

So far, possibly the best games I've seen them play all season.

Need to do it for one more period.

And that's been the rub this season.
