    Hey im one of the biggest Pens fans here and neither blown call had a bigger impact then the other. The Pens flat out blew it the bigger issue is the second goal they got one of the weakest goals i ever saw.
    I hand it to Philly they came out hard the 2nd, 3rd and OT Pens played like crap. Pens blew the game no team should give up a 3 goal lead in the playoffs on home ice. The calls were not the problem the Pens were. If we lose tomorrow night we are in serious trouble

    And the main point I'll continue to make: if the Penguins didn't want to lose, they shouldn't have given up a 3 goal lead, no matter how the goals went. Or they shouldn't have given up 3 goals after the mis-called offsides goal.

    It was still 3-1 with 30 minutes left in the game.

    The Pens have an issue closing out games. They get cute, fancy, and too soft with the lead. And have done it all season against us. At the same time, I really hope the Flyers stop going down 2-0 and 3-0 in games. Sure we've won a couple of times, but very soon, either the Penguins will get it through their heads to play 60 minutes, or we'll play a team like NYR, who plays 60 minutes, and we'll lose.

    As happy as I am about last night, I do fear that the Penguins are finally going to play us 60 minutes. And if they do, and we cannot get up early in games, we might be finished.

    I'm really not.

    Fact is, you've got two die hard hockey markets, and probably the best rivalry in the sport. Two awesome teams. Bad blood.

    It's great TV. I'd even say it's a top 3 rivalry in all of sports, right now.

    But the stretch pass was the offside.

    Like I said...Pens didn't lose because of it, I just don't think the two are comparable.

    I'm still pissed off at Dan Bylsma.
    "...more talking went on between us all until [Roethlisberger and his entourage] left the bar. Then I seperated with [name redacted] and the other girls and went with another group, and everything else happened, and I was told about it this morning and felt I needed to give my statement. Looking back and hearing all of the details, it seems to me that it was a set-up, and so I think this needed to be told."

    They are absolutely one and the same. The only reason the Briere goal gets more attention is because it was the beginning of the comeback. Yes he was WAY offside but on the Pens 3rd goal Coburn and Bryz stopped playing because the ref had his hand up for icing. To say one was more important than the other just shows your homer tendencies. Both were horrible calls (or in this case non calls) that lead to important goals.

    i'm not ya he backed off but he isn't the one who let the soft 2nd goal in that was crosby and flower. He isn't the one who played sloppy D bottom line we didn't execute not the coaches fault in this situation.

    Overall, yes, it does come down to the players not executing when they needed to. That being said, it was pretty clear that once we had the 3-0 lead, Bylsma clearly wanted the team to go into shutdown mode when it should have been conservative mode. The Flyers knew our D wasn't going to try and pinch and our forecheck was basically nonexistent, allowing them the time to establish their offense and not feel hurried whatsoever

    This. I'm really concerned at our tendency to give up early leads. We're not going to keep coming back in the playoffs like we did in game 1. We need to put the hammer down early, and keep it down. I love the resilience and heart the Flyers show when they are down, but...I'd like to see 60 minutes of that.

    ...And did you see that Giroux goal?

    I agree with you. I hate playing prevent...imho, the best defense is offensive zone pressure. If you sit back and don't pressure the other guy, it allows the enemy offense to get in a rythem, and get sustained o zone time of their own, and eventually something will go in.

    If you continue with a disciplined attack, you keep the other team playing D rather then trying to play O...and they aren't scoring when they are playing D.

    A friend of mine said Letang is not a good defender, he is a great offensive Dman but not good in his own zone, that's something i'm going to be paying attention to tonight because the guy gets a lot of praise. Malkin's gotta get it going, he's been the best player all year this is the wrong time to go into a slump.
