Iím tired of these blown games.  Flyers score with 18 seconds to send the game to OT. Then they score with 3 seconds left in OT to win.

Absolute crap.

Very disappointing weekend for the Pens as they only get 1 point out of a possible 4 and yes, I agree with KR, that game against Philly was absolute crap. I just had that feeling that the Flyers were going to win that game when the Penguins just couldn't beat their goalie one more time but of course, stupid Penguins fans decided to chant 16,000 to the Flyers because it has been 16,000 days since they have won the Cup but the Flyers were able to embarrass the Pens again as they did in the outdoor game but that didn't stop Pens fans from making asses of themselves

Pens have to figure this out because they have a huge week of games starting Tuesday against Carolina then Nashville and Dallas. All three of these teams are trying to position themselves for the playoffs and won't be taking any games off. Penguins need to start realizing this or they are going to slip in the standings quick

Tampa beats Arizona last night to clinch the President's trophy for best record

Vegas also wins last night 7-3 but I was keeping an eye on that game because I assumed Fleury would start because they played back to back games and Subban started the first game but nope Subban started again and they beat the Sharks soundly. Was wanting to see if Fleury could get his 440th win for his career but they must be giving him a rest before the playoffs. He has started 59 games this season

Read that MAF is injured.

Malkin also "week-to-week" from Bortuzzo hit. I'd guess some kind of rib injury.

I didn't hear that about Fleury. Damn that sucks

Everybody is assuming Malkin is hurt from that nasty cross check Bortuzzo hit him with and of course, the refs never saw it either

Just went on the Vegas website and nothing about Fleury being injured but he must be because they recalled their Minors goalie Maxime Lagace on an "emergency basis"

I really hope it wasn't another concussion


Just found it: Lower body injury they are calling it

Great! Here we go again! Pens were up up 2-1 with 2 minutes left and Murray canít catch a weak shot that goes right in his glove and the rebound gets put in and this game is tied 2-2 and now JohNson takes a penalty so the Canes are on the power play for the rest of the game !

Hopefully the Pens can get this to OT and salvage a point

Amazing effort in OT killing the penalties, but nobody can score in the shootout for the Pens as they lose 1-0 there and 3-2 overall.

I mean any kind of points are good, but would be nice to win some of these games in OT.

Other games Montreal gets a win and puts another nail in Phillyís coffin.  CBJ currently losing which would help the Pens greatly.

Just hate the Pens' shooters shootout strategy. They are way too slow and too much dipsy-doodling. This is the way most teams do it, but I think going in fast and getting off a hard snipe would work better.

It is getting to be a common thread where I read or listen to on the radio when someone talks about the Penguins they say or write Murray played really good BUT. And when that but gets thrown in there that usually means he gives up a bad goal to either tie or lose the game. I wasn't happy with either of the goals he gave up yesterday. 2nd goal was flat out bad because he has always had issues with controlling the puck when it goes in his glove. Looks like a kid playing baseball for the first time and a pop fly was hit to him. First goal maybe he gets a pass because Carolina had good center drive coming down the ice so he really couldn't square up to the shooter but IMO, he just always keeps his glove and blocker down way too low and it is easy for good shooters to snipe high on him.

I just have no confidence in this team right now to close out a game that is close and the power play has looked flat out awful lately. Maybe it will get better in the playoffs when teams try to block everything going to the net but we will see. Good note is the penalty kill has looked really good for a while now. Johnson has really cemented his place there and saved that game in OT last night to at least get it the shoot out by blocking that shot late in OT with his skate that was going to a wide open net

Columbus loses 4-2 to the Flames
Islanders lose 5-0 to the Bruins
Capitals beat the Devils 4-2
Montreal wins 3-1 over the Flyers

So Carolina in the 1st Wild card spot with 87 points, Columbus holding on to the 2nd Wild card spot with 84 points but Montreal is only 1 point behind. Flyers 5 points back with 9 games to play. Penguins with 89 points are 2 points behind the Islanders for 2nd place in the Metro. Washington on top of the Metro with 93 points

The Penguins, apparently, just aren't that good anymore.
