Ok, that's it.

This game was lost in the first minute of play when Kunitz flubbed a prime chance. And they then flubbed like 19 other prime chances.

BOS leads 1-0.

Again, another 2 inexplicable missed chances. We've scored 6 ****ing goals in this game. Ridiculous.

Pens got raped on faceoffs, allowed the B's to not chase your team around. That was key IMO.

They did lose the face off battle which was not surprising and Rask played well, but they truly could have scored a TON of goals tonight despite both of those things. It just didn't go in......I haven't seen this many near misses in a long time.

I'm happy with the effort except for the third period. Play the same way in Game 2 and hope to get the breaks.

Yup, managed to land a whole one punch on a guy with one career fight on his resume.

You played a good third period in response to that...but I was happy with our effort. Most nights it would result in a 5-3 win. It didn't tonight and you won. Looking forward to the rest of the series.

Lol. I didn't have a problem with it. Rask was giving him some business and Sid was frustrated because they had Boston on their heels for most of the two periods yet had absolutely nothing to show for it. It's frustration and for anyone who actually cares and doesn't view this as purely a mercenary business they will occasionally boil over when the score isn't reflecting reality.

Frustration at that point of the game? I don't know about that...I think it's a lack of discipline. Dan Bylsma needs to get his guys under control because the Bruins talking trash and doing extracurricular activity between plays is designed to get the Pens off their game, and it worked.

shocking, but I bet you would have been some upset if lucic came over and started laying the boots to cindy for touching the goalie right ?

Exactly, I thought I was watching last years flyers pens series, if fleury was in net it would have been 5 or 6 nothing. When Malkenstein gets up and goes to chase after a guy to make a hit, instead of trying to do something with the puck, you know hes coming unglued.

Why do you keep insisting that the Pens were the only ones that didn't capitalize on scoring chances? The B's hit two posts and had at least two unforced errors on a 2 on 0 breakaway and another 3 on 1, yet you keep ignoring those and focus only on Pittsburgh's blown chances. It very easily could've been 6 or 7 to 0.

A post is a post. It happened both ways. Aside from the holy roller there at the end of the period, Rask made his own luck. He was ridiculous last night. And the B's defense was at the top of their game. Outside of the first half of the opening period, the B's either held serve or dominated. The final score reflected reality as much as any other score usually does.

You're right. One punch clearly could never do any damage.

Not to nitpick, but it's pretty clear Sid started it to try to get in Rask's head. Sid never even faced him until after the physical exchange that HE started with the elbow, so it's obvious there were no words that caused the frustration. Even the Pittsburgh announcers knew what he was trying to do.

And then he very clearly started with Chara who wasn't even facing him or talking to him, after he made sure there was ample referee support around him of course. And then there was the slash to Seguin that he thought he'd get away with, but didn't, then complained about for 2 minutes and somehow didn't get a misconduct.

He's a worse instigator than Marchand, if that's possible.

This is not how you want to play Boston. It plays right into our hands. If they continue to get frustrated like this and let it get physical, they literally stand no chance in this series.

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.
It's all a set up given Crosby complained postgame

You see, they need to create drama/attention for the series. Keep an eye on the PP discrepancy as the series goes on...same thing happened in the caps/rangers series.

btw, Pierre favors everything pens. Come on now, you know that

It's not the infractions on the opponent that's the issue in most of these games; it's the non-calls against the "favored" teams.

In other words, it's not the penalties against Boston that's the issue, it's the amount of non-calls on the pens and this will widen as the series goes on and that will be your huge PP discrepancy. It's funny to hear Crosby b**** about officiating, considering no one is allowed to hit him per league mandate.

Kudos to Boston though, they are implementing the Flyers plan from last spring. Now we will see if Bettman comes in to save the day. Last spring, even he couldn't help the pens spotty defense and ****ty goaltending

Yeah I was taking your post and your points very seriously until I got to the he's a worse instigator than Marchand part. If you really believe that then there is nothing to discuss.
