Title: What is up with the Pens?


Wingman - May 28, 2008 02:56 PM (GMT)
I don't get it. I like the Pittsburgh Penguins alot, since I like Sid and Malkin and the rest of the Crosby show, and the fact that I live an hour and a half from Pittsburgh. I rooted for them as they handled Ottawa, New York, and Philly with ease. The sports critics everywhere were hailing them as the next Edmonton Oilers team, the new Gretzky, Messier, Kurri, Coffy, Hall, and Fuhr.


Then they play the Red WIngs.

This has been hailed as one of the best Finals in years, with, at least on paper, two amazingly talented teams that both value puck possession and can get physical if the game requires. My true love is the Red Wings, enphasized by my sig, but since the Pens and they never play in the regular season, I was able to comfortably root for both teams without fearing having to take sides. Now they were going to play this young, very talented team that blew out all their opponents. I was sweating a lot, not knowing if the experience and grittiness of the Wings could match the youth and talent of the Pens. My friends, who are all Pens fans, had their own reasons to sweat about the Wings.

And then they play, and until the start of the second period of play in game 1, I saw some REALLY good playoff hockey. With the start of the second period, however, the Pens fell apart. Now, Detroit has won two games and has thoroughly dominated the Pens in every aspect of the game, except maybe hits. I'm not saying I'm not happy, but I am curious as to why this contest has turned so one sided. Super_wolvie, my condolences to you, and I truely hope this match can get more even sided before the Wings sweep.

Any comments anyone?

they've all been kidnapped, by aliens from the planet of ZALAGATHARAKATAAACAZAD, (their huge redwing fans), and several ZALAGATHARAKATAAACAZADIANS have disguised themselves as the pens. Hopefully, the real penguins can break free and win the cup.

As of right now, the Pens are no longer undefeated in their own building. The Wings are up 3-1 in the series. GO WINGS!!!!!!

Yeah (sigh), it was.

The Pens didn't deserve to win. They got outshot, outhit, and outplayed almost the whole game. They blew a two goal lead. The only reason they won were a few lucky bounces and an incredible performance by Marc-Andre Fleury. Whatever the heck they're paying him, it's not nearly enough.

Meh, i dont watch hockey a lot, so i dont know what's up with the pens.

*GASP*


You're Canadian, born and raised, AND YOU DON'T WATCH HOCKEY?!?!?!?!?



Man, that's almost as bad as an American not watching baseball, or a Brazilian not watching soccer, or a Frenchman not watching tennis, or a Japanese not watching a Karate match, or...

OK, you get my point.



*grins sheepishly*

And in reality, I don't watch baseball. I hate it. So that tells you how much of a hypocrite I am.

hey you can take 8000 shots a period, but they don't mean a thing if they don't go in!

and besides fleury had an unbelievable game 50+ saves!
