Louis Lipps Service -- why not? Can you explain the mental difference between having to look over your shoulder v. being replaced, and then coming back into the next game? Of course there are qualitative differences, but it isn't clear to me that one is worse than the other. It also isn't clear to me how Fleury would react to either. He was pretty awful early in the season when he was trying to "win" the job from Murray.

I guess my whole point is that if Fleury is this fragile, then it seems like a good choice to go to Murray.


Because he's proven before in these playoffs that he's perfectly capable of coming back from a subpar game and playing great. I think his coach telling him to get back in there and give it another shot, even with Murray lurking is a helluva lot better than his head coach saying "nah, I'm going with the other guy, even though we're sitting in the conference finals with you as the clear front-runner to being team MVP thus far".

Big different between a coach telling his player he has confidence in him, but keeping a back up plan, just in case, and that same coach turning his back on him the first chance he gets.

Well, he bounced back when Murray was injured / just coming back. A bit different compared to a Murray who just came into an actual game and played really well.

We are outrageously depleted of talent right now; we need a spark.

Murray is that spark.

This.

It's not about the goalie. It's about the team overall.

Really?

This team has 4 fucking goals in the last 3 games played....4

Didn't the Pens lead the league in scoring this season? Maybe Murray can score a goal to give this team a spark?

Maybe we can win 1-0 again with this offensive juggernaut. This team hasn't finished in a long time.

I would appreciate a link-staying at the only fucking Hilton in the country that doesn't get NBCSN.

I travel for work alot. As a Hilton guy, I can tell you that most hotels don't carry NBC Sports. I actually keep a spreadsheet so I know where to stay during the playoffs.

First time I ran into this at Hilton and I stay with them on a regular basis.

But you need to be a subscriber to NBCSN, yes? Or do you mean just the regular NBC website? I wonder if you can use it with an NBC app on roku. Guys at reddit used to post urls that could be plugged into pear tv app. No more.
