    It was ugly but I’ll take the 2 points especially vs the pens.

    Girardi is terrible and he was pretty good last year. He need a to sit. Every game.

    Aside from that, what a game.

    Were any of the goals his fault though? Feel like Girardi is just often out there at the same time as Kuch.

    He needs to find his offense though. He had a good first shift and after that nothing all.

    Uh, we dominated pretty much everyone before the break. Go back and look at the scores.

    Imagine Cernak-Hedman playing full time.

    I'd love to see:

    Hedman-Cernak
    McDonagh-Coburn
    Sergechev-Stralman

    I'm done with Girardi full time and we don't have anyone just quite ready in Syracuse to call up yet.

    Looks like January 8th was the last time we actually dominated. Some big score games after that but those were not very convincing.

    If we do face them again I swear I will have an aneurysm if we put any D-men other than Hedman, Strals, Cernak or McDonough in the game when Crosby is out there. You somebody who if they cant get the puck from him behind the net at least make him work for it.

    Also 13 people had a point on our team today, kuch wasn't one of them. That's beyond bizarre lol. Coburn got an apple on his 900th game though

    I don't know if he was the same, worse or better, but I know this, the amount of Girardi bashing has not changed much year over year.

    Kuch-Stammer-Joseph. Because the other side is too slow, they were able to double Kuch. Put some serious size and speed, rough a diamond as Joseph is, and Kuch will get freed up.

    Or make a new TKO line, something. But quit thinking that having Palat out there is helping, he's a 3rd or 4th liner 12:00 TOI at best right now.

    I feel like Girardi has been decent this year. One bad game isn't enough to get rid of him completely.

    And if we bench every defenseman that has a bad game soon Cernak will be the only player left.

    Have we tried McDonagh - Coburn before? I really hope Sergachev puts together some good performances would love to see him play with McDonagh. I feel like Cernak got much better playing beside McDonagh

    Pretty annoying how the Pens would start a scrum after every whistle. Just go away and lose gracefully.

    Stralman-Serge have played, not sure about Coburn.

    But the speed factor of Stralman-Serge against the other team's transition would be fun to watch.

    On the good good news besides the W:

    We are still 13 points up on the pesky NHL Refereeing HQ, aka, Toronto.

    It was clearly part of their game plan. It didn't work, not enough anyway.
