    Pens should be up 3-0......nice choke job last night. I can't put this on Vok.....when you have a power play to close out regulation, you should not be so passive as to give up a short handed goal. That was absolutely inexcusable.

    true enough but hardly a choke job when only up by one late

    the goal was pretty much all on Malkin

    when you have possession of the puck on the power play with less than a minute left, it is a choke job to give up the tying goal.......

    by definition, you cannot choke away a one goal game, regardless of situation

    Traffic is gonna be crazy tonight. Pens,Pirates then some country concert. Main tunnels from east side into Pittsburgh closed as well. I was given tickets to Pens games and sold them for a pretty penny. Im not dealing with all that tonight.

    Well the Pens lost, that sucks.

    The Boston D was outstanding, as was the goalie play.

    Still, Pittsburgh had some bad luck, knocking at least 3 shots off the post.

    So hats off to Boston for the game 1 win. Hopefully Pittsburgh has shaken all the rust and cobwebs off from their layoff. Time for them to get back to playing the kind of hockey they are more than capable of playing.

    GO PENS

    Yeah not smart to book so many events on the same night. On a positive note, it is the Pirates so there shouldnt be all that many fans going to that game.

    Serious question.

    Has Crosby always been such a whinny little pansy or is that Mario's influence?

    Watching him throw his fits is just like watching Mario and his antics in the 90's.

    Was Crosby this way before he hit the NHL?

    He's always been that way. They call him "Cindy" in Philadelphia.

    Best player in the league though.

    skill wise he is the best in the league.....however, he can be a drama queen. still, since he stepped foot into the league, he has been resented by the rest of the teams and they have gone after him and taken cheap shots at him, maybe to teach him that you can't expect to be handed the world without earning it. he does annoy me sometimes with his whiny ways.....but he is still the best guy on the ice......and even though he does whine a lot, he has shown to be a lot tougher than I thought he would be.

    You could wind the clock back to 1995 and these exact words could be said about Mario. I wonder if that is pure coincidence or if Mario's mentoring has something to do with it.

    I'm not sure it is envy of his instant success and the marketing of him as the face of the NHL that causes teams to get after him. I think it might have more to do with it being an effort to get him off his game and because of his attitude. He is certainly no angel himself. You can't two hand slash Seguin and then cry because you got two minutes to think about it. You can't get in the opposing goalies face after the period ends then take a jab at an opposing defenseman while literally hiding behind the ref. He needs to leave that stuff to Cook and sack up and act like a captain should.

    I love his game but have little respet for his entitlement attitude.

    Should be a great series.

    Bruins in seven.
