When Sid popped in the equalizer, I thought it was our destiny to win that game. I guess the hockey gods saw it differently.
They just want us to end it on on the Cap's home ice, so we can watch their fans sit in stunned silence while Ovechkin rushes his way through the handshake line with tears in his eyes.
In all seriousness though, it sucks that we have to go to game seven, in Washington no less. It will be a shame if we lose this series, given that we've outplayed this team for all but like 10 total minutes.
Not making excuses for Fluery, because you can't give up 5 goals on 25 shots, but Hal Gill played a shitty game (as has been his habit this postseason) and Orpik played the worst I've seen him play in a while (which I don't expect to see Wednesday). Also, you need to fucking score on that PP at the end of regulation, end of story.
I still expect the Pens to win this series as they are clearly the better team. And regarding Varlamov, that dam has to break eventually. It just sucks that we're now in a position where one bad bounce can end the season.
