Ovechkin managed that two penalties on one play...play. I was impressed.

Also, even without Malkin the Penguins are a juggurnaut. Letang is the best offensive d-man in the league right now, Kunitz is flourishing now that Crosby is healed from his concussion and the addition of Bennett makes the Malkin-Neal line that much more dangerous.

I would be surprised if we don't make it to the Conference finals.


The Flyers have shown that the Penguins don't play well when faced with a physical opponent. All it takes is one series against a team that plays the body, and the Penguins can be stopped.

This is why I hate the schedule this year with no inter-conference play.

It was certainly an exciting game. As much as I would have liked the win, taking a point away from a game against the Pens is nothing to be ashamed of.

Interestingly, the Pens and Leafs were the only two teams without an OT or shootout loss, before that shootout.

No it doesn't. All it shows is that Philly is Pittsburgh's Kryptonite.

Pretty much this. I mean, I sort of agree that physicality is the best gameplan against a fast, skilled Pens squad but the Flyers are by far the best at it. We're 2-8-0 against Philly at Console Energy Center which is turrible.

Anyway, we played a great game tonight. Doubled up Boston in shots and despite missing a few open-netters in the first two periods we put the pressure on in the third and scored three.

Guess we're going to see Detroit a lot next year.

Also, 7 in a row, bitches. Four without Malkin, arguably the second best player in the league.

DETROIT
Man are we struggling this year. Currently trailing Edmonton 2-0 on the road. We've scored 1 power play goal on the road all season. ONE. For fucks sake.

Well, we got our second power play goal (on a gift from Jeff Petry, who shot the puck into his own net), and Datsyuk won the game in OT. So, finally got a win.

Just look at how Zetterberg and Brunner have been playing over the past 2 weeks. They have a combined 5 points in March, over 7 games. For your top line to put up that kind of production, you need someone better than Jimmy Howard in net.

Ducks over spent. No way either of them is worth as much as Crosby.

Overspent now, bargain in the future due to inflation. Players should be learning by now that long-term contracts aren't in their best interest as the cap and player salaries rise every year.

This is hockey, you also have to consider the injury factor. You might earn more, or you might have a season with injuries that won't give you the potential to earn more, you might even earn less or none at all.

Mind you, the association is trying to reduce that as much as possible, but there have been some nasty hits of late.

yeah, it's a bit of a surprise that they were to get Crosby-like contracts. At least the Ducks will have long-term security barring injuries.

Also, Pens extend their streak to 10. Thankfully they heard my whining and have only given up 6 goals in 6 games. I can say they'll safely extend their streak to 11 as I'll be at the Islanders game.
