I can see it coming from a mile away and I'm already really pissed off.
yeah but Chicago did that in the Det series and was down 3-1. LA played well. it's a good match up.

I just have a bad feeling about it. I don't think they match up well with Chicago if they can advance past Boston. Detroit losing was probably a death knell for us.

What's your biggest concern with matching up against Chicago. My brother-in-law is a Hawks fan so I'm familiar with their roster, and my best friend is a Penguins fan so the same goes there. That being said, again, what is your biggest concern? Goaltending, size...

Sucks for LA they have to do it again tomorrow. There is no time to lick their wounds, and work out the kinks.

I think they are more balanced than we are. PIT has a higher ceiling cause the offensive wizardry of guys like Sid, Geno, Letang, Neal and Iggy is amazing but Chicago has a much higher floor. They are more consistent, especially defensively. They're puck possession game is better. I'm not worried about Crawford, we can easily make him our b****, but I think Toews defensive work could frustrate us a bit and the Hawks will get under Geno's skin and make him take dumb penalties.

The only kink they need to work out is to bring an effort.

Need to see bodies flying tomorrow by bringing back that strong forecheck game they are known for. Kings generally bounce back from losses, so we'll see an improved game tomorrow.

Chicago has significantly more talent on the backend than Pittsburgh and I think it will be difficult for Pittsburgh to match up well against the top 10 of Chicago. It took the Hawks quite a while to work out the Detroit match ups, how they wanted to respond to the Datsyuk and Zetterberg lines and I think it will be the same against Pittsburgh, coach Q will need to work how to best counter Crosby and Geno.

No team has the explosive offensive firepower of Pittsburgh, but right now Pittsburgh is by some margin the worst defensive team remaining - they have the worst backs and the worst goalie.

Based on the Detroit series, I would guess Toews, Sharp and Bickell (with Keith and Seabrook) gets to play against Crosby and Hossa, Kane and Handsuz (with Oduja and Hjalmarson) goes against Geno.

For Pittsburgh to have a shot in that series they will need to take advantage of Rozival and Leddy and try to get Geno or Crosby out against that pair as often as possible, especially when they have last change.

Chicago is good at transitioning from offense to defense since so many of their defenders are good skaters. Chicago also has talent at C and F. So, if you have a shaky goalie/defense, it can be a problem. It should also be pointed out that, if Chicago makes it past LA, they'll be coming off of a series where they're facing Quick (who is significantly better than what Pitt has).

Is there like a magic forcefieldbehind Rask?

We've hit posts and had pucks just slide inches away. We've scored like 4 goals in this game, this is craziness.

Lol...the Bruins got under Geno's skin.

Shocker. He always lets that happen.

Just turning into an all out brawl. Fun series.

At least I won't have RedskinBronco claiming the refs favor us anymore since Marchand didn't get the same 5 minutes Cooke got.

Crosby....way to talk tough to Chara. I'm sure he's intimidated.

When will teams learn? You don't want to poke the bear. This is when we play our best.

Cooke probably gets the Torres treatment. Gone for the series.

Keep it up one more period. Outside of the magic forcefield we are doing what we need to do to win. Keep fighting 20 more minutes.

It was a tap on the back, Neal sort of sold it a little too much.

Russian Judges give it a 5/10.

Who do people want to watch more, someone like Chara or Crosby? I doubt Crosby is trying to intimidate that freak. He's probably trying to get some calls.

It would be interesting to see what would happen if Chara were to injure Crosby. Chara might never play again in the NHL again.
