Wait til PK breathes on him and he falls down easy. He even has a good excuse to do it now with that stank breath

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.

Yeah I don't know it must not have been close either way or Nashville would have surely challenged

Shoot gloveside on Murray.

I like how the media trumpets this like it's some great discovery. Every goalie sucks on shots high. The elite ones just stop almost everything down low. That's the only difference between them and a backup.

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

Their d has been fine this game. Murray's just been out dueled tonight. Chances have felt about even to me.

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.

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 Pens still have home ice advantage for a best-of-3 so they're still better than even money to win the Cup... but, man, I wish they'd try something different instead of the "let's just keep doing what we're doing and hope Murray dramatically outplays Rinne 2 games out of 3" strategy Sullivan will actually employ.

Feels like it took him two games to figure it out but Laviolette knows how to attack their glaring weaknesses (hint, they wear #65 and #3) now and that's changed the tenor of the series.

They've been fine dude. This has been an even game and the Preds just so happened to have finished better/gotten better goaltending. If the Pens play like this again moving forward they'll be fine.

Well, it'll be a coin flip, but yeah still fine.

And coin flips usually go to the home team since NHL reffing dictates that the home team gets more powerplays.

Either that or the Pens win in game 7 with a huge powerplay disparity that causes sas to melt down
