    Figures the Pens play their worst game of the year against the Habs

    It didn't effect the outcome as the Pens just flat out did not play well and the Habs brought their A game, but what was up with the 9 million penalties last night :lol:

    I thought the Pens looked far sharper at times, Montoya however stole that game.

    Yeah Montoya was fantastic... but the Pens had some TERRIBLE breakdowns in their own end. I'm sure the Yinzers will be bitching about Fleury now :lol:

    Ah ..... It was tied for so long I was hoping they'd pull out the win.

    Oh well, Bs pulled out a minute within a minute and fifteen seconds, so I'll take it.

    Oilers are 4-1 after taking down the Blues. Lucic is a beast.

    Its about damn time this young team started to deliver.

    I'm surprised to see Vancouver is on top of the standings at 4-0, after just about every analyst predicted them to finish dead last in the league.

    Leafs lost their first in regulation. I know we're going through a rebuild and it's going to be a *real* ....ty half decade or so, but man...it's been a real ....ty 15 years already.

    Being a Leafs fan is the most annoying thing in the world as there are already other Leafs "fans" who are calling for like ....ing everyone to be fired and replaced and blah blah blah. Just like ever ....ing year. Just shut the .... up and let them do their thing. Or stop giving them money so they actually feel pressure to do their thing.

    Damn Pouliot finally gets into the lineup and ends up going out on IR after the game :(

    6-1 after rolling the Caps 4-1. This team is finally different this year. Larsson is an absolute BEAST of a dman and is making that trade look like a win-win for both teams. Russel was signed right before the start of the season and has arguably been our best dman since. Balanced scoring from all the lines means McD doesnt have to carry the team every night. Talbot has been lights out since the 1 bad game (and only loss) against Buffalo where he let in a knuckler from half ice.

    Good to see Edmonton might finally no longer be the place #1 draft picks go to vanish in obscurity :lol:

    Man the Caps stunk in that game. They are atrocious on special teams and can't score 5v5. They always stink when the play out west, maybe I should trade watching the rest of the road trip for sleep.:lol:

    McDavid leads the league in points right now with 11.. and has yet to register a shot on net during a powerplay....

    Can only rely so much on Ovechkin's cross ice one-timer. Every single time I see a Caps highlight, it is always this exact play. I am surprised at how often it still works, given how predictable it is.

    Eastern Conference heavyweight game tonight :partyhat:

    Actually they score just as much from the slot man in the 1-3-1. The PP is just not moving the puck well though. Standing still doesn't work no matter who is on your PP unit.

    I think I'd rather see the Flyers just throw all their young players out there, especially on D. It's the veterans that are making all of the mistakes right now.
