    lol wow thats a tough call they both can score yet they both are amazing passers. I would have to say whomever wears the C on their jersey is better.

    Malkin you tend to notice more. Crosby seems to lurk and then make the amazing pass. I'll take either. Better yet, both.
    Son's game for tomorrow was moved. I get to watch the game.

    Yep. Need to get past the blue line and start the cycle that they'd been so good at. Grind it out for a bit to open up the big play.

    I didn't expect it to be like this. I am sure it will be a different game when they play in Pittsburgh but my god is Detroit a powerful team. They just have all the experience. Pittsburgh has all the star players but lack to connect. Look at Franzen, Zetterberg, Datsyuk... who the hell are these guys anyways? No one heard of them 2-3 years ago and look at them now. Osgood isn't getting tested like he should, the pens had opportunities but still. The score in game 1 didn't reflect the hockey game as most goals were scored in the third but again a goal was called back in the first which clearly was a goal for Detroit. Game 2's score was legit. Game 3 will be crazy, can't wait. I predict Pittsburgh will win both their games at home. If they don't I'm a douche bag.

    Both games? If the Wings survive the first 10 minutes of game 3 the series is over. The Pens are so frustrated they are punching Franzin in the head. I feel bad for Roberts he is having a hard time keeping up with the pace.

    That is a little hard to speculate. It all comes to match ups.

    However Detroit is pretty damn impressive.

    Zetterberg and Datsyuk have been on the radar since they joined the league. Remember these are both relatively young guys. Zetterberg is 28. Datsyuk is 30 and has had over 80 points the last few seasons.

    I still Hate Detroit.

    Yeah sure but they're not household names yet. I personally have taken notice since the playoffs started at their performances.

    I agree with Marcus, Roberts is taken a beating trying o keep up. He's sacrificing a lot of skill just to hit. He's one of the few pens who's even finishing the checks. At his age he's playing great. Watching the game now and the pens are damn good at home.

    Yeah, it was fun. Not just the win, but that 7 minute stretch in the third period was as good as any hockey I can remember ever seeing. That one shift Orpik had was amazing. That hit on Crosby was something else too. Was that draper? The game just had everything. For the most part the officials let them play physically while keeping it in control.
    At least the series will be more interesting now. Don't see them coming back, but at least they started to fight for it.

    Great game. Crosby did earn some respect, he picked up his game and acted like a captain finally when it mattered. Pittsburgh definitely are strong at home. They were comfortable controlling the puck and not just shooting it away blindly. Although Detroit didn't play all that bad either. Zetterberg is just amazing, every shot he takes on net is an opportunity. Can't wait for the next game. I'd like to see Pittsburgh win again to make things even more interesting.

    Do you guys watch the game via ESPN?

    Yes Draper hit the Captain. What impressed me was Sid's back checking 100% hustle he is scary when he is flying full tilt. He led his team to victory. Orpik was like a freight train during that shift he buried 3 wings on 1 shift. That was just a downright demonic shift. After that game ended it felt like I had been doing cardio for 10 min It was so exciting.

    I like the cardio comparison. I felt the same.
    ESPN? They lost the contract a couple years ago. Versus or NBC now. Up until the finals I could watch it on CBC, but now all I get are the US feeds.

    Yeah, didn't want to spend even more money on a league that was losing viewers. Outdoor Life jumped on it. I guess the ratings for the playoffs have been way up this year, so that's good.
    Thing that sucks about Versus is not everyone has it. I was up at the cabin this last weekend and I had to go to three bars before I found one that had that channel. Nice place, but they ran out of Summit. Had New Castle on tap so I guess it was a win/win.

    What I have noticed this series (I dont watch pittsberg ever) is that Andre Fleury gives up SOOOOO many rebounds. Dont get me wrong, he's great at stopping the intial shot and moves dece but my goodness!!!!!

    If detroit would crash the net a little more they'd have triple the second chance oppertunities and score atleast an additional goal per game.

    Ya but crashing the net and getting a goal in the cup finals the refs will for sure find some way to call it back. Franzen is the only guy that I know of who can do that cleanly. Roberts does it well too.

    Pittsburgh played an incredible game last night. They Dominated the first period, then got dominated from periods 3 and 1st of over time then manage to get a goal in the last over time. Just awesome. Malkin is really struggling. The no look passes are coughing up a lot of opportunities for Detroit. He needs to get use to playing on the outsides. I'm not a big fan of Fleury but boy did he ever pick up his game in the moment of truth. I was hoping Pittsburgh would win to push a game 6.

    That was a hell of a game last night. I somehow knew that Pittsburgh would tie it up in the 3rd, but I had no clue how OT was going to go down. This is one of the many reasons why there is nothing like playoff hockey.

    I was pacing the room for hours. I felt the same way about tying it up, but everytime the Wings had the puck I thought it was about to end. How about Malone staying in the game? Gonchar coming back....Fleuery...yeah, he does give up rebounds, but how he moves that fast....
    Getting respect for Zetterberg. Seems like he can weave through anything. What a game. Bummer it ended on a penalty (ok, I don't mind), but at least it was a real penalty. The other three in overtime were weak.
    Anyone else sick of the guy between the benches breaking in with the same comments over and over?
    Just glad I didn't meet some friends at Old Chicago to watch. I'd be dragging worse than I am.

    Yea the wings D just tosses around Malkin and Crosby like they're rag dolls. I am really surprised by that (in a way) I figure those two would have a lot more impact but it's the others that are really stepping it up.

    About crashing the net, it seems that most the pens critical goals are off crummy rebounds that the Detroit guys just seem to stand around and watch.

    Im just a big fan of crashing the net hard on every play

    Detroit has been able to smother off the opposition for years now between the left-wing lock and the new system that Babcock put in after they fired Lewis.

Other then the first period, where it was relatively even, Pitts just happened to score. Detroit dominated them. Pitts looked horrible out there. Very sloppy play not hitting passes, giving away the puck, not chasing dump ins. They should have been Slaughtered.

    I read alex's post differently. He pointed out that they got dominated much of the game. But...despite that, they sucked it up when they needed to and ended up winning. Incredible game.
    Anyway, Detroit took it to them after the first period and for much of overtime, but couldn't put it away. Looking forward to tomorrow.

    Yeah, it was actually dumb luck. Ended up getting them from a vendor. I'm glad they made it this far, the press all gave it to Detroit 4-0 and they're tough as hell. But regardless of the outcome the Pens team's so amazingly young so we should have a soild team for years to come.
