Weird series. Pens have progressively played better but haven't gotten the results on the scoreboard. It's a matter of puck luck...shit sometimes happens

But Sully continues to put himself in bad positions by the lineup combos and personnel. Archibald (who had a fine game) is supposedly out for Wilson (who has sucked this series)

These should be the top 2 lines:
Sheary Sid Guentz
Hags Geno Kessel

Oh and Hainsey has gotten the most time on the ice this series for us. How does that even fucking compute? Ruh would be a much better option.

For all the griping about Hainsey I think Maatta has been far worse.

Both have had their moments but Hainsey is a complete liability in his own end.

And Archibald should be in over Wilson.

Its Frank Lloyd Wrights 150th birthday today, so win the damn game Pens for the master.

Someone else nailed it: they haven't played that poorly the majority of the time, but their mistakes have all turned into quality scoring chances, because they don't have the make-up speed to overcome. Maata has made a lot of great plays but his mistakes are unbelievably glaring.

Yep. I've started calling it "Highlight Reel Evaluation". People basing their opinions on players based on plays that make the highlight reels (positive or negative), and not paying attention to the non-obvious plays.

Between the two, I think Hainsey has been worse than Maatta. I think Maatta has been decent along the boards and around his own net. But he gets beat in open ice, which tends to be more obvious to people than his down low play, and has had some clearing attempts that have been bad (and have led to goals).

Hainsey constantly looks like the slowest guy on the ice and just isn't winning enough puck battles, and has been even worse on his clearing attempts than Maatta has.

If the trend of the Pens playing better every game continues, this should be a win.

It better be a win. If they lose its over.

Hainsey is approaching Scuderi territory with all these minutes he's piled up and that's not exaggerating. He struggles to make a simple breakout/clearing pass

Maata is what he is- he can mitigate his foot speed issues with positioning and can make a pass. Has some offensive instincts.
Hainsey is none of those things

No matter what anyone thinks about who will win tonight, the one thing I think we can get board consensus on is if they lose tonight it's over.
