Because of seeding I was actually hoping for Montreal to make it over CBJ. The Habs for nothing else aside from mystique are seemingly alwaysna tough out. Tampa will probably sweep the Jackets.

Still a lot to be decided this last day at least!

Pens dominated most of the first period and had a 1-0 lead from a goal from Crosby off a nice feed from Guentzel but Wilson makes a really bad turnover and gives the Rangers a mini breakaway to tie it up after one period 1-1

Went right over Murray’s glove. He should’ve had it but not good to give it away like that

If Murray just stays up, that shot hits him in the chest, but these goalies all want to flop right away.

Kind of a blah second period as it is still tied 1-1. Pens had 2 power plays but barely got the puck to the net. Kessel is passing up allot of opportunities to shoot. Something is really wrong with that IMO. Murray wasn’t tight on the post late in the period and one almost got by him but luckily, almost doesn’t count.

Letting a bad team stay in the game usually doesn’t wind up turning out good

Also the islanders and Carolina are winning their games

Luckiest goal I think I have ever seen someone score! Goes off Hornqvist ‘s skate and right to Bjugstad who almost whiffs on the shot but it trickles in to give the Pens a 2-1 lead

All the Pens need is a tie to finish no lower than 3rd, but coach genius puts out another 4 F PP that backfires allowing a SH goal and 3-2 NYR lead. Now the Pens are going to end up playing Wash in the first round of the playoffs when all they needed to do was play smart, safe hockey.  >:(

Guentzel scores late to get the game to OT and secure a series with NYI.  Pens lose in OT but didn’t matter.

very disappointing game. Pens played really sloppy and continued to let a bad team stay in the game and they wind up losing because of it. I know a loss doesn't matter because they got a point but IMO, that's not the way you want to be playing going into the playoffs. Power play looked just awful today and Murray is giving up questionable goals.

I said it before. This team can either win the Stanley Cup or be bounced in the first round. Such a Jekyl and Hyde team this season. I will still be rooting for a Pens vs Vegas Finals!

I'm hearing Pens vs Islanders might be starting on Wednesday

It's so obvious that it hardly matters who the head coach is. The players just play however they want. Of course the owner set the precedent, so no wonder. They were somewhat more disciplined than the 1st game at Det, but they faced a team that wanted to skate and play pond hockey and the Pens were more than willing to accomodate that. The Pens are undeniably a highly skilled team and they love to show their skill off. No surprise they were fortunate to get the 1 pt they needed to clinch 3rd.

On the plus side, it was nice to see Sid get 100 pts and Guentzel 40 goals.

Pens open on Wed at NYI. I'll bet NBCSN's audience will be enthralled to see the clutching, grabbing, trapping, interference-based hockey as practiced by the Devils, er Islanders.
