Pretty substandard period by the Birdies.

Getzlaf is still one of the biggest cunts in all of hockey and just gifted us a 4 min PP. Gotta tie this shit up now.

And for those keeping score at home (ahem), Kahun scored an absolute beauty for Buffalo tonight, a team on their way to another top 10 draft pick.

Ryan Getzlaf is a bitch. And the only bigger asshole in the league I can remember is Corey Perry, and to think both of these dipshits were on the ducks at the same time. My god.

For fucks sake Zucker, a 2 on 1 to Crosby and that’s the pass you come up with? Next time just flick it into the stands.

Re-watch the goal by Guhle and tell me if Matt Murray even looks like he wants to be out there.

The fucker is just drifting side to side into oblivion and not in control of his crease one bit. I don’t understand the guy.

Dude - you need to push off your edges and get your ass back into position in order to stop shots like that. If you had moved your ass, you would have been in position for that routine save. What the hell are you doing?

I’m firmly of the opinion that Jarry should be playing 80-85% of the games now. We’ve been alternating goalies for what feels like an eternity.

If Murray wants to coast out there, then he can sit on the bench.

Pens PP starting at 12:45 in the 3rd period might have been the worst I’ve seen all season. I’m not sure what I’m watching anymore.

Well if you play like shit for 55 min a game, you will lose.

If you didn’t watch the game, then please do yourself a favor and find something else to do tomorrow for 2.5 hours.

It’s odd; the Pens team chemistry looks like hell right now; yet we have all of this talent.

Here who is officially on notice and needs to start playing some fucking hockey;

Johnson
Tanev
McCann
Simon
Shultz
Ruhwedel

Trotman should not see a game jersey the rest of the season. Riikola played pretty damn good against the Kings and he’s rewarded tonight as a healthy scratch?

I’m puzzled. We lose tomorrow we are a wildcard team come Monday morning. Fucking lovely.

I started watching right when they started their meltdown. WTF is going on? I realize the roster has changed, but seriously?

They look like shite. Didn't bother finishing the game last night.

I agree with a lot of what Orange wrote though I'm not down on Tanev. He still brings it every night and he is close to matching his best #'s this year compared to any other seasons of his career.

McCann, to me is the most disappointing player. He just disappears and his defense is suspect at best. I don't see why the organization is in love with him. I just don't see it.

Another thing, this team has been wildly inconsistent since Guentzel went down. A stretch of good to sometimes excellent hockey followed by what we have seen the past 2 weeks. Up and down. I know this won't be popular but Crosby has been that way this year. Not questioning his effort but he goes off for three or four games then has a four games or so where he might not have a point. Same goes for Rust.
With the injuries our big guys need to be more consistent.

I only watched the last half of the game last night but the thing that stuck to me was how ordinary they looked(again) against a bad team. They need to own those teams.

And the dumb little things are killing this team. Malkin gets called for a penalty when there is none. Instead of accepting it and moving on he loses his shit, confronts the ref and gets called for two more minutes for unsportsmanlike conduct. You can't do that when trailing.
