I'm still at bit dismayed at Rust. He must have had 2 or 3 scoring chances he completely flubbed or got robbed.

But all in all, a nice recovery from an ugly first. We know what the pens are capable of and as long as goaltending isn't swiss cheese bad, this team can change the complexion of the game in a matter of minutes.

(frank) its gonna be a long wait till Wed

Murray is 9-1 after a loss in the playoffs. Game 2 was hardly his fault. The Penguins issues are ride or dying on special teams, and the pathetic 4th line.

There Are teams in these playoffs just killing the first round. We still need to be better in all areas. But great win, win when they needed it. Home ice restored. Business as usual.

Sid v philly lol, just tap out Philly, you can’t win. If they didn’t boo him so much, he probably wouldn’t skate out of that barn with the first star every time. A big thank you to flyer fans for driving our captain!

One shift at a time, well done boys.

Well I think Ruhwedel moves the needle for the Pens. I think he's highly underrated in what he brings back there.

He's solid, but I wouldn't say he moves the needle. Would replace him with a solid pk specialist if we had one.

A lot of people on here whined about the refs last game. It's just NHL officiating. It comes in waves for everyone.
- Rinosaur

It's a lot of the same guys complaining to each other here too. Nobody really liked the call on ZAR and at least some hated the dive on Horny, but other then that I didn't notice much otger than the normal suspects like taleisyre who always complain about the refs. Maybe I missed some stuff though.

Yeah, Murray came up huge in that first period. The Flyers came out strong while the Penguins were scrambling all over the place. If it wasn't for him the Pens would have been down early.

The Pens finally found their legs and got the PP working.

See you in Game 4. I expect another strong start from Philly

Giroux got totally curb "Powned" (Isn't that what you kids say?) on the Faceoff following the PP goal by Sid, then compounded his mistake by not covering the trailer (Doumo). 5 seconds of suck on his part.

The flyers best players are killing Them. Bottom line is they just can’t hang with the pens which we were pretty sure would happen. Maybe they can squeak in another win here

No, it was just your arvo nap. Puck drops in 10. Let's go Pens - I feel Sid is going to play with Giroux psych in this 1. Teach him how real players play the game.

@sundin: All the "passing the baton" talk from Sid to Claud after the 2012 disaster series where both teams kind of decided that goaltending wasn't fun anymore.

Crazy stuff happens. You never know, but I think there are too many matchup issues for them to overcome.

it would require Elliot being superhuman, pens PP going stone cold, and the flyers top crew somehow balancing out the pens crew. A lot of variables would need to fall in line just like game2.

Giroux prob tried to start grabbing his own ass, letting Sid blow by him.

Watch the video, Giroux is following Sid's arse with his eyes & completely loses concentration allowing Sid to walk by & set up another 1. Giroux only had eyes for 1 thing - well technically 2! Be careful about saying 'blow' & Giroux.
