    Doesn't mean much. If I learned anything from football, and it is only more true for hockey, depth of the bench is as important as nearly anything.

    Oh, and ole 71 is my favorite player anyway. Go Malkin.

    The dude is up for the Hart trophy... doesn't mean much? It would be like the Pens without Malkin. You have seen "the goal" right? #13 is insane, no two ways about it

    Of course I have, but no team should be about one player, ever. Yes, it happens, but it shouldn't. *shrug*

    Obviously the Red Wings aren't, as they've still done well, but you can't really say anything would be any different with him out there.

    Hate to tell you Jeff, but the Pens are about 2 players.

    Because Gonchar, Fleury, Staal, Orpik, and Talbot are playing like crap. :p

    Similar to the Wings, they have some better, but they could live without Osgood and the like.

    All I'm saying, is a team that plays noticeably worse without one player, is fundamentally a poor team. Before you say anything, I do not feel that the Red Wings are this, but if what you say is true, that the Wings are sucking at the penalty kill (which, by the numbers, especially in the last two games, it is weak), then they are a poor team in that regard.

    Kind of like, prior to last night, the Penguins were stinking in the 2nd period.

    Tonight was the men playing the little boys. When the Wings come to play the Pens are clearly under matched.

    Just postponing the inevitable.

    If the refs called penalties consistently in game 4, we're watching the Wings hoist Stanley all week this week.

    The Pens have nothing beyond Malkin and Crosby. And I'm right in the same boat as Lyle, Crosby might be able to pull it off from time to time, but 75% of the time he's a liability and worthless.

    I'm sorry Rock but this statement is more full of crap than a septic tank. Pens got away with a couple, yeah, but the Wings have gotten away with a lot as well.

    It ain't over, and I am hoping it won't be over after tomorrow.

    3 PPG with #13 in the lineup. Coincidence ;)

    Not at all. No ifs, ands, or buts about it, Wings butchered the Pens on Saturday night. I'm not one to lie and make up stories, Saturday was the Pens own damn fault, but the Pens earned their two wins.

    I said Game 4.

    If the refs weren't told by the league to swallow the whistles, Motown is rocking.

    Pit has no business being in this series, and would likely have been killed by anyone in the top 4 of the West (except San Jose, who are the biggest bunch of posers ever).

    Pens brought it tonight, gritty shut down performance... boring, but classic old school playoff hockey. It must have been a frustrating night for the skilled players on the Red Wings side, Scuderi, Eaton and Gill were all over them, the kind of stuff you can only get away with in the playoffs. I don't like it, but that's what you have to do to win. I really thought I was watching the 07 Ducks tonight.
