You know it would be awesome to have just one game where Letang isn't directly responsible for a goal against either by terrible play or a stupid penalty.

The Caps are just plain bad. Everytime Grubauer is in net, they are getting blown out.

It's really frustrating how bad Dallas has been.

Even more so because on paper that lineup should be killer...

Figured you guys would slump after the lineup losses and injuries... but not this bad...

Freaking Letang needs to stop taking stupid penalties... seriously who the hell takes an interference penalty on the power play :facepalm:

After watching the Flyers I know what that dude from Casino felt like when his head was in the vice.

This should be ugly, Malkin is out. The Pens are struggling to score goals consistently and he's their #2 goal scorer behind Kessel... and he centers Kessel's line.

Man...I checked the score of the Pens/Bruins game a little while ago, and I see: SOG - BOS 26, PIT 9

WTF? I haven't been able to watch much hockey lately thanks to my job, and maybe that's been for the best since the Pens have been so frustratingly mediocre. But regardless of who our third line center may be, this complete lack of offense is ridiculous. These guys must be exhausted after playing over 200 games over the past couple years, because the only one I see scoring regularly is Kessel.

Last game they had 42 shots and still couldn't score.

They had a terrible first period today, and Murray gave up 3 goals that should have been stopped.

The biggest differences this season have really been too many stupid penalties followed by being sloppy in their own end and no secondary scoring... and Murray being an average goaltender. Fans will argue about Murray, but stats don't lie and he's got a 2.88 GAA and .907 save percentage.

Previous seasons if the top two lines got shut down in a game the third and fourth lines could still score. This year they're getting no production below the top two lines and Murray isn't stealing any games.
