Me too. It was close as hell and certainly worth the risk.

Forsberg channelling his inner Henrik Sedin.

Even if the puck didn't go over before him it can still be onsides if it was deemed he had control as he entered the zone which you could obviously have argued he did

I have no idea where the "had control" thing suddenly came from. Offsides has never been called like that. The only time an attacker can precede the puck into the zone is if a player is skating backwards which Crosby objectively was not.

Already established. That doesn't mean you give up, though, and it's a shame Nashville took two and a half games to cram that into the space their brains haven't heat-expanded into.

I kinda wish the Pens' PP wouldn't spend so much time along the side boards

Taking a penalty near the end of a period is the worst though, it means the other team can use its PP1 the entire power play

Which is especially bad in the Penguins' case since their PP1 scores like 97% of their power play goals

It amazing how much the NHL stands to benefit from the Pittsburgh Penguins Hockey Club win the Stanley Cup for the second time in a row. I mean how bad would it be to have a first time champion in a potential hotbed in the south by leveraging its unique environment from other sports. It would be POISON for Bettman with Nashville wins. It definitely keeps him awake at night....because of his uncomfortable greed boner because holy loving poo poo

it's from the rules, which are of course, consummately vague

However, a player actually controlling the puck who shall cross the line ahead of the puck shall not be considered “off-side,” provided he had possession and control of the puck prior to his skates crossing the blue line.

No no no, the proper argument to make is that NBC controls the NHL, and thus the refs, and, if the TV schedule is any indication, the only two teams whose existence NBC is even aware of are the Penguins and Blackhawks.
