Penguins Isles Game One

Post by Ice » Sun May 16, 2021 3:47 pm

No Malkin last practice, so Carter moves up. We can never have nice things.


Nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile...

Hopefully this is the beginning to a steak.
Ice, could you start these earlier please?

OK, I'm watching an infomercial about Luminess prior to the NBC shit show. Great way to ease into hockey.

No Malkin and it isn't surprising because he didn't play the last 12 minutes of the season ender and his practice time has been sparse. Did he get re-injured in the last game when he got hit in the lower leg or did they bring him back too soon. He looked good the second and third game of his return.
In 2016 Malkin missed the first playoff game and played with a bad elbow and look how that turned out.

The Count is out as well for the Islanders. I expect the Isles to clog things up early and try and force the Pens into mistakes.

On a side note, the NHL network spent the better part of last night blowing Tom Wilson who did have a great game. Fucking media.

Why was Jarry so deep in his net on the goal?

What a tremendous PP even though they didn’t score.

Pens are flying. Really damn good period. Thank god Jake wasn’t hurt on that trip. He broke his shoulder going into the boards in a similar fashion.

And dumb fuck Keith Jones said it was an accident. That was a pure trip. I hope they run Sorokin's ass next period. Run him the fuck over.

Letang was outstanding in that period. Really stood out in all phases.

Good to see Rust has the burst, there was some question about it those last two games.

The Pens really did display their speed in that period.
One thing that has me worried is that when Pens D linger at the blue line then shoot it in late. It allows the Isles to block the puck and go the other way. You can see the Islanders are trying to do this.

On the score sheet is says the Islanders had 30 hits in that period. Whoa.

Jarry is on point. Has made some awesome saves.

Oh come on Jarry what the fuck. Hell of a shot but that was yours to save.

There was a stick waved in front of him, though.

I'd blame the defense for even allowing that shot.

Pens are getting out worked, out hit, and out hustled right now.

Not denying that. Just sayin' on a clear day, a bird flying in front of you can obscure your concentration.

But the defense prior to the shot wasn't good.

The closest player was Cece and he half assed it. That goal was all on Jarry, same spot he got beat on for the first one. This time he got out of his net but was a bit off his angle.
No obstruction on the second goal, none at all.
That is a goal Jarry has to stop considering it is the playoffs.

Some guys have disappeared this period.

I don't want to be argumentative, but a penguin defender was waving his stick in front of the shot in an attempt to block it. That's all I'm saying. Yeah, he should have caught the shot. I guess I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt.

But I don't know shit about hockey

Pens really need to play 3 periods of hockey though. In the playoffs you don’t get to take one off.

Amazing how poor the Pens puck control was that period compared to the first two.

I’m smelling a Jeff Carter game winner right here.

On the Nelson goal I don't know why Letang didn't challenge him stick to stick. He could have played that better.

Jarry looks unsure, kind of like he did to start the season. The Islanders have beaten him to the glove side three times. He is better than he has shown so far.

Kap, thank you.

This is what drives me crazy about this team. First period they owned the OZ, really controlled it. Pretty much the same in the second. Then the third period happens and they become counter punchers.
The Islanders are great at insulating the tender and blocking shots but the Pens can't match them in that regard yet they played most of the third period trying to do exactly that.
Drives me crazy.

Go look at Guentzel's playoff #'s for his career. First two years(cups back to back) he was on the level of a superstar. More than a point per game.His last 9 games he has two goals and something like 5 points.
Come on Jake, send the fans home happy.

Well, that sucked. Pretty bad start to the playoffs to blow a lead like that at home.

I remember some stat from last year like the Pens were 1-9 in their last 10 playoff games. Are they 1-10 in their last 11 now?

History just likes to torment us sometimes.

We held Barzal in check for much of the game. He only had a few great chances. Yet, a former Devil who was a Pen killer in the past comes up big for the Islanders today-Palmieri.
At least Zajac wasn't available.

Tuesday night isn't huge, it is must win.
