Really garbage start for the Pens. Why isn’t this team fired up at all? I don’t understand it.

This power play continues to suck my nuts. Complete waste 5 on 3 for about a minute and a half.

I only started watching recently. I've seen them go 2-6, about to be 2-7. I'm getting tired of watching them lose. The craps are making them look like they suck.

We might be the worst 5 on 5 team in the league.

And Beth, remind me again how many days it has been since your fucking loser bunch has won a Cup?

You are right about the 5 on 5. We are a fucking disaster. Did I count about 6 odd man rushes that period?

But for maybe 2 guys, the Caps are top to bottom a better skating team than we are.

Try watching a Pens game and see if Sheary can go the whole contest without falling down on the ice.

The issue about motivation is really irritating me. I think Sullivan is a great hockey coach, but I just don’t think we can continue to ignore these dreadful starts. And here, it’s a home game against the Caps, and we come out this flat?

That’s eventually going to make Sully’s seat hot whether we like it or not.

This is terrible. Caps aren't playing all that well lately either, but man are they kicking our ass.

Looking like an early playoff exit again this year unfortunately. What a terrible time to start playing like shit.

Yeah, the Caps have been the worst defensive team in the league since the beginning of February. Giving up something like 3.5 goals a game.

I think the Caps are in the Pens heads.
The slow start and they got behind then the cautious play which backfires most of the time. The aggression isn't there but the dumb fuckery sure is.

I thought Hornqvist and Marino came to play.
The rest of them look like they don't want to be there.

Jared McCann is lousy. End of a story. We should have shipped him off.

Yeah. That was a lame effort. Although holtby isn't a shitty goalie.

Did I hear that right? Pens are 0-4 in penalty opportunities?

And is it me, or are our defensemen really bad at hitting the net with their shots. I think I’ve seen every defensemen miss the net by a wide margin today. That last shot by Letang wasn’t even remotely close.

Correct. 13 shots through 2 periods. There is absolutely nothing redeeming about this game.

Another thing really irritating is this game reminds me of how good Tom Wilson is. He’s a cheap bastard and I can’t stand the guy, but he’s an excellent hockey player. We need a guy like that.

Haven't scored on the PP against the Caps all year.

Better effort but when you come out flat you leave yourself a mountain to climb.

From all reports recently the Caps have been sloppy but today they have smothered the Pens. Give credit to them.

I hate to single one guy but Letang has handled the puck today like it is a grenade. He isn't an elite passer but he looks like Mr Magoo after two.


I'm not getting the McCann love. He isn't even streaky.
