Murray in net and maybe Kahun is ready to return.

At least the Caps lost as well.

OK, let’s try this again. Go Pens.

We need guys to start scoring; see here:

Tanev has 1 goal in his last 15 GP, his longest slump of the season; McCann 0 goals in his last 14, his longest slump of the season; Rust has 1 goal in his last 9, his longest slump of the season. While this sucks... I'm glad this is happening now. Get it out of their system and keep up with the Caps

Man, not sure what is wrong, team looks out of it to me the past few games. Just out of sync or something.

Caps are thugs.

I'm not in the group that thinks McCann is that great. Way too inconsistent.
Yesterday Malkin set him up point blank range, no one around with time and he doesn't even get a shot on net. Normally he would just shoot it into the goalies chest.

Damned if you do, damned if you don't. Now Malkin won't be on the ice for the PP. Cheers to him for standing up for Horny but in that situation it might have been better to skate away.

Nice period right there. Playoff game feel.

It looked like the Caps were more intent on hits then getting a cycle going. I'll take that every time.
Weird game-both teams score on their tender.

The between the legs of the defender pass to himself was sweet.

Could our defense be any worse? If Letang and Johnson keep running into each other like that behind the net, this team is going to get scored on.

We need Marino and Dumo back in a big way. Complete dogshit in front of our own net.

Ywah, complete horseshit. We gave up 3 dumb as goals today. Not going to win when that happens. Lose 3 in a row not good.

What a joke of a period. Should be ashamed.

Two weeks ago we win games like that.
There were some guys who didn't show up today, especially in the third.

That third period was top three worst periods by the Pens this season.

Yep, it was bad. Caps aren't really playing well either, just got a few bounces and better goaltending.

Anyone think the Flyers might make a run and win the division?
