Flyers closed it to 4-3 on a sweet PP goal against the Caps.

Rodrigues with a pretty nice first period. Scrappy every game he plays.

The last 10-12 minutes was a lesson in puck possession in the OZ by the Birdies.
Rodrigues got pulled down at the end of the period and there should have been a call. I'm not sure he gets the respect he deserves.

OH, the NBC/NHL talking heads are on drugs. Some of the shit they have spewed today has been crazy talk.
Crosby is the most underrated superstar in the game? That is rich.

Earlier Rupp and some other asshat were talking about Giroux and how he was the best player in the game 6-8 years ago for a couple of seasons. Sheer lunacy.
Dumb fucks.

Glad I muted the TV during intermission.

The Rodrigues goal was 100% the result of Teddy Blueger doing Teddy Blueger things - beautiful steal on the forecheck followed by a great feed.

And Buffalo gets it right back :x

That penalty on Jankowski was absolute garbage.

And Buffalo pulls within 1

Looked an awful lot like a penalty to me.

Whew. They hold on.

Really wasn't expecting Dustin Tokarski and Carter Hart to have strong outings in these last 2 games, but here we are.

Pens jump into 2nd place.

I feel as though almost every time the Pens play the opposing goalie seems to be able to stand on their head and make plays. That giant of a human Vladar for Boston this year did the same. Carter Hart the other night was getting peppered pretty good and stood tall through 65 mins and eeked it out during penalty shots.

And we got excellent goaltending the last two games as well. Jarry made some incredible stops today.

What Irked me was the defensive posture the Birdies took to with half the third period to go. They got away from the trap and were happy to just get the puck deep and then defend in the DZ.

Thankfully NBC isn't covering the game tomorrow. Bob Errey might be shy a full load of bricks but at least he is entertaining.
