Penguins have generally had a hard time playing MSG. And everyone knows it, so that is prolby how they knew that piece of info so early. Also good to see them get the first win at MSG, that is huge! Confidence is everything in this game

My prediction went to Sh!t...

Laraques goal was actually pretty sweet. Dude pulled the puck in from the Ranger then just wristed that sumbitch. Dudes got some puck skills for being such a big dude, not just a goon.

They outshot the Penguins in the last two. The powerplay is working for one team and not the other.

Did anyone catch Jagr's post game? Dude is emotional right now and said he has a "special feeling" about the series now.

For the sake of Jagr, I hope the Pens sweep them. I really don't want to see him get boo'd in his last game. He did a lot for the Penguins in the past.

I could care less if they boo'd him now. Dudes done nothing but make excuses this entire series, along with his teammates and media.

5 goals on 17 shots. Malone's was a tip-in, Malkin's two were both PP and screened blasts, Hossa's was a cross-ice feed, and Laraques was a shelfer. Nothing could've been done about Malone's, but the NYR PK small box obviously isn't working so they need to expand it to get forwards more locked in on the point-men. Hossa's goal was bad defensive coverage and Laraque's was a breakdown behind the goal that led to the pass. The Rangers D is definitely being exposed.

Jagr walked off after a reporter mentioned how he would react after the series is over (or something along those lines). Jagr cut him off, "Is it over?!" and walked away.

I agree with you 100%. He has acted like a POS this season, but you can't ignore what he has done in the past for the Penguins' franchise. The guy has an 2 cups, 1 MVP, 2 (?) Art Ross, and has scored over 430 goals while wearing the Gold and Black. Give the guy a break - he's a legend.

Apparently Sean Avery has a lacerated spleen and is done for the season, and maybe his career, so I've heard.

Sharks for the come back baby.

Starting Halak was a bad bad idea. It showed how little confident you have in the Price, so who they gonna put in for the next game? Both guys can't win right now.

Anyone else starting to think a Red Wings v Penguins final is going to be a good time? Both teams can skate, and have a ton of offence with suspect goaltending. I like, I like.

edit: Danny Briere is the Conn Smythe winner right now. Not even a doubt about it.



TEAM LORD:
1. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
2. Nate Marquardt
3. Goran Reljic
4. Amir Saddolah

RANKING: TBA
TOTAL POINTS: +TBA
