Heisenberg's goalie, he's either great or lies on the ice out of position dead and you can't predict which.

Worst case scenario: Murray starts Game 5 but gets chased, MAF gets a 47 save shutout in Game 6 and then makes 49 saves in a 1-0 Game 7 loss, followed by the Penguins deciding to keep him and trade Murray away ahead of the expansion draft

If the Preds have to win the Cup then I at least hope it's in 6 games for this reason

I kinda wouldn't mind making it illegal for goalies to play the puck beyond the hash marks. Goalies coming out to play the puck kills a bunch of breakaways. The Preds forwards actually held off there fearing that Murray would play it past them.

This game's pretty exactly what we all worried about coming into this series though: Pens are pretty good, get some chances, but the defensemen are just too drat weak to hold up.

And it looks like Sully is prepared to go down playing Hainsey and Maatta near 20 minutes each to the bitter end, which I may never quite understand

I wish they would get rid of the trapezoid and let goalies actually play the puck more.

I wish they would just let goalies go anywhere they want but make them fair game if they leave the crease

It bugs me the way they're allowed to just chill out behind the net basically sticking their tongues out at opposing forwards and saying "neener neener"

You seem to have forgotten Turco and Brodeur acting as a third defenceman in the trap. It suuuuucked.

Good news is the Pens can expect probably two power plays in the third period

Yeah Rinne has pulled a few bonkers saves out his rear end to keep it this score.

I hope the pens don't take away the wrong lesson there and think that they need to make pretty passes to beat Rinne instead realize they are not calling interference or hooking in the slot or crease so just get yoke some dudes and take away their hands.

Where goalies are concerned, Hasek is the exception to every rule. For that one Gaborik flip there have been ten thousand breakaways taken away by the goalie rushing out to play it. If goalies were forced to stay in the net there would be another breakaway every game or two which is a good thing imo and worth losing the very rare cool goalie forward collision.

I'm worried about Sully taking the wrong lessons from this and scratching Archibald and/or putting Kunitz back in the top six. These lines have actually worked decently well.

I would swap Hornqvist and Rust though. Horny plays better with Sid and Rust plays better with Malkin.

The trap in general blows, but good puck moving goalies are artists that should be stifled.
