And to the Pens fan base that still harp on the Murray versus Fleury decision_get_over_ it!

▶︎


I was a MAF backer until 2012, and then did I finally become convinced he had some sort of mental block. Then I hated him until last year.

We don't win the Cbus or Wash series without him. And to top it all off he bails out the team by waiving his NTC. I mean he could have fucked the Pens in multiple ways during his last couple of yrs, but was always a good soldier. I mean he was kind of the OPPOSITE of what James Harrison pulled and was all about the concern for the franchise above anything else.

I don't think I respect an athlete more than how I think of MAF...even Mario, yea he saved the Pens but he still had financial incentive and skin in the game.

That being said it was the correct thing to move on from him. It's kinda like the girlfriend you knew forever and got along great, but you knew you were both holding each other back. If the Pens don't win it all I'll definitely be pulling for him and the Knights. I hope the ovation is great for him and he feels appreciated.

agree..felt the same way on maf...
I blamed him mostly for the early playoff losses to lesser seeds..he was awful in those series..glad he got it together last year.

Not really sure what you're going to find out about him in WBS and this opportunity seems like it was tailor made for him.

Maybe they'll wait a couple of games before doing it so he doesn't feel entitled?


Me thinks Sully doesn’t appreciate his millennial attitude (JK I really don’t know much about the situation other than he seems to be on Sully’s radar and not in a good way).

I'm telling you-I don't think Sully trusts him.
Benched Sprong the last West coast trip against SJS in the third. Scratch next game and sent back down after that. It has happened several times under Sullivan.

I agree his skill would be better served in the top 6 then some of the other choices.

It would be something if Sid scored #400 against the Flower tonight.

MAF is owning us.

Jake really poor pass there at the end of the period. Dude needs to make the most of his chances or get him off that line.

I liked the start to the second period. Smart play.
Have to think Murray lost the puck on the second goal because that should never have gone in. Dumo was late to react as well.
Of course dickface had to score the goal.

The Knights are doing a good job of standing the Pens up on the blue line. Some guys don't want to dump and chase tonight-missing Horny.
Even without Sheary in the lineup we are faster but they have done a great job of taking away space.
Speaking of that, the Pens have faced two deliberate/structured teams the last two games and have struggled mightily to get shots on net or build any OZ time.
That worries me.

And there is Reaves getting us back in the game-I'll take it!

Finally get a D man to engage-Cole.

It's weird watching the Birds score against Fleury.

And now we're making the top team in the West look silly...

Malkin is unstoppable.

I don’t follow as closely as some of you guys...what’s the root of the James Neal hate?

He's known to have a douchebag personality. Supposedly wasn't all that well liked in the locker room when he was here.

Also has a reputation for taking head shots, although that seems to have died down a bit in the past few years.

Great to get that win. Rest of the division isn't doing us any favors.


Thought we saw some of Good Letang tonight. Seemed to be everywhere with the puck and making some things happen in the offensive zone.

Would love to see that rend continue.

Definitely need to get Horny back.

For all you guys that have had great success with nhl streams reddit, you'll have to clue me in on what the secret is.

9 goals scored and I saw exactly 2 live. Well, with a delay.

I know I'm running old equipment with an old ipad(but updated software), but jesus fucking christ. Not easy. Found one link in the entire thread that worked, and it locked up after stalling earlier at the beginning of the third after intermittent sound throughout the whole game.

Whatever.

Go Pens! Glad Flower got a good reception and missed a few shots.

You can get Pens the rest of the season on nhl.tv for not more than $40 total.

I watched until the MAF tribute and then only bits and pieces after that

Good news: Looks like our 5 v 5 play is normalizing
Bad news: Looks like our PP is normalizing :lol:

I saw Reaves score and I thought Hacksaw was going to kill his dog...

Neal could have had a fine career in Pittsburgh, if he hadn't gone out onto the tiles. Drinking problems(rumored), head hunting and the breakdown of his chemistry with Malkin all led to his being run out of Pittsburgh.
Scores 40 goals one year(Malkin his primary center) and then he goes almost rogue and becomes a cheap shot artist in the 2013 season.
It was like the guy morphed from a top winger into a sometime thug.
Anyway, the Pens got Hornqvist for him(along with Spalding) and that trade worked out for both teams.
Sometime after leaving the Pens he stopped with the cheap stuff.
By the time he was dealt he had basically run himself out of Pittsburgh.

Last night was a weird game. Talk about momentum swings. That period of time where the Pens dropped 5 on Vegas was some of their best play of the season.
Then came the 'old' hang on and it almost cost them.

Both tenders made nice saves but gave up some weak goals. The Reaves goal went through Flower and the last goal Vegas scored was bad positioning by Murray.

But they won and that is all that matters except...

Two more injuries.
Getting thin at winger.
It should be interesting who might be the next call up from WBS.
