Can someone, anyone, tell me how were up 2-1 in a fucking shootout and this little cocksucker lets up 2 more for the win? You stone Backstrom but let in Ovie, Semin, and Knuble? I'm gunna fucking hurl. Clutch in the playoffs or not, I would kill to see Ryan Miller in a Pens uni. Fleury isn't showing shit. Hasnt been showing shit. And at this here particular point in time, Im wondering if he will ever show brilliance again. Motherfucker.
Flower was money last year in the playoffs, I'm not worried about him. I just don't like the shootout being the tiebreaker. I don't think winning the shootout is really indicative of who the better team was during the game. We had the momentum going into overtime, and we carried the play in that period, but you can't carry momentum into a fucking shootout.
Also, what was Bylsma thinking making Guerin the # 3 shootout guy and Kunitz the # 4?
Staal should have been the 3rd shooter. He played amazing all night, and he was fired up. I really think he would have scored.
Who is the team most likely to win the west?
I say it's Detroit.
Detroit has experience and are playing really good hockey right now, but I don't see them beating Vancouver or Chicago in a seven game series. The Coyotes are playing out of their minds right now too. They could very conceivably make run for it as well.
Penso, you probably should start another Pens Playoff Push thread. It was magical last year.
Agreed, it would be madness not to!
