I’m surprised the pens weren’t crying for a suspension for oshie 🙄🙄

I'm not surprised the Washington fan is crying.

Looks like there was a bit of a very unwanted meltdown last night, going from up 3-2 to losing 3-6 in 20 minutes.

It was a great run with back to back titles.     A few pieces nex4 year, a better start to the season and the Pens can contend next year.    After the bad start I'm surprised they even made the 2nd round.    

CANNOT keep a team like tho Caps down forever.   Can they get by TB?  I think with this monkey off their back of not getting past Pitt will allow Wash toease that pressure.   Now its....ugh......just following tho Reds...

Naw Pens will easily come back and win this series and the cup.  Greatest team of our generation and they will show why tonight.

Wouldn'tthat be great?!  In a few weeks watching the Pens one night, the Cavs the next when they are beating up GSW?

 

Unfortunately its the Caps year..

Yeah, I think they'll come out hard and with enough desperation to win tonight (although I could also see them start nervously and get buried), but I don't currently have much confidence they'll win at Washington in Game 7.

So far, it's seemed to me that the Caps have outworked them for a good portion of the series, being more aggressive in controlling the puck, and Pittsburgh seems to be good for a couple moronic turnovers leading to breakaway looks by Washington every single game. If they can't improve on puck handling, they won't have a chance.

Tough one ........both goalies played well.  You are right about the puck handling...........not as sharp as we have come to appreciate.

The last play of the game resembles the bolded comment.

That play happened in slow motion.   Ya could tell it was gonna be the end.

Solid season and let's come back strong next year. Sid and the boys have played a lot of games the last few years.  Cannot end every season with the cup.  Need to start the season a bit better but no reason why they cannot contend again next yr

Caps can’t seem to win at home this playoffs which is crazy. They completely dominated last nights game but stupid ass penalties once again killed them.

I would say of all major sports, home advantage seems to mean less in the NHL

Pens won't win three in a row this year, but Marc-Andre Fleury still can, since Vegas is in the finals.

The people who jokingly threw a couple bucks at Vegas to start the season are going to be pretty happy if they end up winning. Westgate had them at 500-1 in the preseason.

How the hell did the NHL allow an expansion team make it to the Stanley Cup Finals?
