Good first day of playoffs. All the games were very intense. How did Weber not get suspended?

Shea Weber is a dick! Congratulations to the refs for the winning the game. Seriously Those were some of the worst calls I have ever seen

The Canucks are playing terrible. Constant hard passes into the other players skates, or missing them altogether. Lame passive little box on the penalty kill, panicking on the powerplay because of LA's aggressive penalty killers and Alex Edler has been coughing up the puck a few times in this series in their own zone which cost them dearly the last game.

Maybe they can regroup on the road and start over. Perhaps throw Schneider in the net to give themselves a change. Something needs to be done quickly. One more loss and their chances would be slim to none getting to the next round.

And WTF is up with Adrian Aucoin from Pheonix throwing that puck around the boards already covered by a Hawks player yesterday. The guy just panicked. What a friggin' boo boo man. **** I hate the Black Hawks and really needed comfort in seeing them down 2-0 yesterday and I was 5.5 seconds away from getting my wish.

either the 'white out' blinded him, or he thought he was hopping onto the bench, because that was a terrible move. and awesome nbc sports coverage was looking at the benches when the goal was scored (although i don't want to be too hard on them, because having every game on tv is absolutely incredible, and ratings are obviously, up across the board).

avoided this thread for a reason. hated the matchup with the philth to start and i still hate it. i don't see us getting out of philly alive if our defense keeps playing like they are, and we keep making stupid mistakes in the offensive zone. trying to be too cute against anyone in the playoffs is stupid, and has always been the pens mistake. we apparently need niskanen back because lovejoy has been terrible.

dropped first two games in 09 in both the washington and detroit finals series, but those were all on the road. hopefully we play better on the road than we do in consol.

We're the only two teams down 2-0 so I'm as close as anyone to understanding your pain at the moment lol.

That brutal offside non call never helped in gm 1 either which began Philly's comeback. The linesman was looking straight at it, motioned his hand to his mouth to blow the whistle, then waved it off. WFT! He was offside by a good 4 feet. And Fleury's save percentage at .767 is unacceptable. I'm not too familiar on the Pen's back up situation so not sure if they're looking to sit him the next game or not. I still like the Flyers though and hope they win this and I'm rooting for either them or Washington if the Canucks fail me.

That Philly-Pittsburgh series is getting a little out of hand. It sure is fun too watch though.

QFT.

IMO this has been a problem for some time, but we don't have anyone to get the bounces, and Philly ALWAYS has someone in our zone to bounce one in (not to mention just attacking Fleury's right side.)

The Penguins have done something few teams have ever done, make a sports team from Philadelphia LIKEABLE, i can't stand the Penguins and it all starts with that whiny little ***** Sidney Crosby, he is the biggest cry baby in nhl history, and boy did he embrace it today.

He was doing this whole tough guy act, and when someone wanted to square up with him one on one(Schenn) he backed away.

I don't know how he is off the ice or if maybe he is indeed a good guy, but man for someone who the NHL is trying to brand as there main guy he sure is hard to have people root for, guy acts like a complete douche bag on the ice.

He acted like an idiot tonight but **** I wish he had actually been backing down.

Anyways, after game 2, I finally knew what it felt like to be punched in the stomach (figuratively).

After this game, I'm not even mad anymore. I'm in a state of hysterical denial/nervous breakdown. There are a million and one things wrong with the Pens right now, our D especially like Franklin said. I don't even know what team I'm watching.

It's Hindenburg, Titanic, and Chernobyl all in one man. Dear God.

Awesome Kings win. Hopefully Quick can sustain beast mode.

Super shocked by the Pens and Canucks. Pens seem to be standing around watching and then take a dumb penality which Philly pounces on and scores. My prediction of Pens in 7 is still alive but frankly if the Pens lose the next one I woulnd't be that surprised.

And what is up with the goon hockey in the first round????

I like good hard fought hockey, but the philly-pittsburgh series is getting a bit out of hand in my opinion.

Also what is up with all the diving? Anybody see Kesler's dive?
