They’re gonna be calling Dan Bylsma “Unemployed” if he doesn’t get this team playing with some discipline pronto.

They need to play and win a “playoff” style game, 1-0 or 2-1. Enough of these 9 and 10 goal games.

And maybe Fleury needs to sit on the bench. He’s giving up too many stupid, ridiculous goals. Once is a fluke. We’re past that now.

I know I’m the only one, but I’ve been saying for years that Fleury is overrated. He caved when he went fetal on that last goal. My blind dog could have stopped it!

People rarely complain about wins.

When you spend large amounts of time flailing about in your own end and are basically relying on the hockey gods’ luck for the good bounce or timely screen, that’s no way to run a railroad.

They need to get back to a style of play that can preserve a one-goal lead, not relying on their superstars to answer every goal with one of their own.

Back in the 1950s, the Rangers had a mediocre team that featured a mediocre goalie named Lorne(Gump)Worsley. His best season was with the Minnesota North Stars in 1972, where he was second in the league in goals against average with 2.12 and was named to play in the 25th National Hockey League All-Star Game, He was 43 years old. When asked to explain his excellent performance at such an advanced age, Gump said that his reflexes were fading and he couldn’t move fast enough to get out of the way of the puck. Incidentally, he was one of the last goalies to play without a mask.

Without a mask. Unimaginable, isn’t it? I think they’re nuts to play without visors. These play-off games have been great to watch, no real blowouts, all close contests. It’s more enjoyable when you don’t have a dog in the fight.

That’s true, the recent games have erased any memory of that one game. You know I like your defensive guy but I cannot stand Malkin. He instigates and skates away to let others fight his battles. He couldn’t do it last night, with the Islander hanging onto his jersey.

You mean LeTang? Yeah, he’s good. He’s up for the Norris.

The refs were letting the game get a little out of hand. With the history of these two teams (remember the epic brawls a couple years ago?), you’d think they’d do better.

At one point one of the Penguins was sitting on an Islanders back in front of the Isles’ goal hitting him and nothing got called.

And as far as the Norris, I hope ANYONE but Suter the traitor gets it. Funny how it was all about the Dman who could score the most goals last year.

OMG that last goal was RIDICULOUS! it didn’t look like the guy even expected to make it, he was just getting it over near the goal and the goal sucked it right in. We literally LOLed at it. Fleury, once you shake him, becomes a veritable sieve and that was very much in evidence tonight. I love Bylsma and i don’t want him fired. I also love Torts. Their styles are sooo diff. As i told my friend Paula, the stoic eastern european sits there seething and the volatile dago is melting down every 5 secs!

and OMG Crosby? if i was his mother i would be on his butt to quit the game. Even with 99% of players bending over backwards not to even breathe on the eggshell capt [and believe me, Hobbes b!tches about it constantly with the Islanders backing away from hitting him] he has pucks coming at his head like they were magnets and he was steel [gratuitous 80s song reference ; )] The puck to the neck so soon after the broken jaw was horrible! and he STILL isn’t talking right, the bottom of his mouth goes one way and the top the other!

You have to fire the guy if he authors a 4th straight early playoff exit. Especially with the talent they have added this spring.

This is his moment. Hopefully, this is the dramatic “turning point” in the highlight reel.

NBC hockey pundits, like Milbury, LOOOOOVE pitsburgh. So it was pretty gratifying to hear them calling a spade a spade last night on how the Pens were not playing hard and just assuming they were going to win.

This is where the polyonymous Chris Matthews aka FatPantload aka ChrisTingle had dinner with his wife last night. xsteen and her boyfriend went out to dinner with the bf's uncle who was in town on business and that's where the uncle took them. I told xsteen she should have gone over and given Chrissy my regards! She could have legitimately approached him to ask how his daughter, her classmate, was doing, but she isn't quite as ballsy as i am.

It is 62 and cloudy-rain predicted tomorrow...

The frantic attempts to redefine
Boston’s bombing were in error-
It is no matter how polyonymous,
The “real” word is still terror

Those who believe driveby media
And those blissfully unaware
Are part of the mooing masses
Who never seem to really care-

But take their bread and circuses
To awaken them from their dream,
And stop handing out the koolaid
If you want to hear them scream

I’ve been watching the MTL-OTT series, so haven’t seen much of the Pens vs. Islanders ... But despite how good you think your offense is, you can’t leave the floodgates open in the Playoffs.

The viciousness on the ice will be matched by the Montreal press & fans, and Therrien may join Bylsma if he doesn’t stop the bleeding pronto. Price being hurt doesn’t help; he was being seriously outplayed by the Sens’ Anderson, but even when he was more on his game the Habs (and backup G Budaj) managed to gift-wrap a win for Ottawa.
