MAF comes unhinged tonight allowing 6 goals. Isles tie the series up.

Flower doesn't have the mental make-up to ever make it in playoff hockey. Defense and him are ****ting the bed as usual. I will not be watching the next games. **** 'em. They suck.

The one time since Game 1 where we actually lock them down to 24 shots and we still give up 6. Vokoun needs to start in Game 5.

I like the adjustments made by the staff but the goaltending needs to get better.

It was brought up in intermission if MAF should be pulled, of course Milbury is an idiot and said they should leave him in.

What a series that is. Love it when Therrien and co. are having a cryfest after every game.

Someone needs to explain to me how Rask got snubbed for the Vezina finalists. Part of me is glad, because it gives his agent a little less ammo this offseason, but damn, that was a huge snub IMO.

Niemi getting the 3rd spot is a travesty, both Rask and Howard are better candidates - although it is all academic since Bobrovsky will run away with the trophy in a landslide.

I also disagree with Henrik Lundqvist getting a spot. I know that stats aren't supposed to be the be all end all, but he wasn't above #5 in any category, other than those based on playing more than anyone else. Talk about a reputation vote.

Lundqvist was always going to get the nod, he is top 5 for all the important stats and he is the only guy who has been considered a top goalie for a while to put up the numbers this year.

Not to nitpick, but he's not top 5 in GAA, which is arguably the most important category (granted, he's 6th, but still).

And he only has 2 shutouts (good for 20th in the league) despite starting more games than anyone else in the Vezina discussion.

He is 4th, Emery and Crawford didn't play enough games to be seriously considered for a trophy on that basis.

Fire Sale? Is that a reference to Vancouver burning and looting their town after losing in the Finals a couple of seasons ago?

Where do you draw the line in a lockout season?

You're ruling out Crawford, with 30 out of 48 games; but including Anderson with 24?

My bad, I meant Anderson not Crawford. I definitely draw the line at 50% of games, that is not enough. I think Crawford is borderline with 30, but the fact that Emery has better numbers rules him out.

My rule of thumb for the Vezina is that you need to start at least 65% of your teams games, have a GAA less than 2.20 and save rate above 0.920.

Feel free to talk ****....we've deserved it. The funny thing is we actually turned it around this last game and held them to just 24 shots.....but goaltending killed us. I liked the slower controlled breakout to counter the Isles taking away the stretch passes.

I hope Vokoun can step up in Game 5. I'd also like to see a 1-2-2 to slow them down....they are having issues with NYI speed. We will see...best of 3 series. It should never get to this point...but it did....and we gotta deal with it.

I have no ill will against the Pens like most. They gained my good graces by beating the hated Dead Wings in the finals. What made that cup even better was how Hossa jumped ship to play in Detroit only to come up short again. I predicted them in the cup but with MAF playing like garbage again I don't see it unless the Pens can score 6+ every night. We will see. I though Chicago has looked like the best team all year so they are my pick to win it all.

And that is why I don't miss Elliott. Weak goal in OT.
