    ++++ Whether you agreed with me or not this team is 100000% playing good solid hockey. The bounces aren't going their way. It sucks but oh well. THey deserved to come back AGAIN from 3 goals. Against a strong defensive team that doesn't lose leads.

    This looked NOTHING like last year's playoff series. We controlled the play , IMO. At least edged them 5 on 5. And we deserved a point and i'm glad they came back from 3 goals.

    +++ Geno, Rusty, McCann: Great line. That has to stick. Good energy and good chances. Really strong play. Their heart/energy was HBK like. And they were awesome.

    ++ Bjugs: Whether you like the guy or not, that was his 2nd best game as a Penguin. And it's 2 in a row. Both being great games by Bjugs. If he can keep building, we got something.

    ++ Defense: Everyone but Riiko/Marino are really putting on a shot.

    Rust with the 1st star. This team's got Jam. Well deserved win and sigh of relief. Streak crushers, crushed their own losing streak by breaking the Isles 10 game streak

    Pens suck and can't score goals.

    for real though, I love this team.

    +I get to make fun of my old roommate, who's an Islanders fan, because he quoted me in our messanger chat when the Islanders were up 3-0

    Well I only saw the last 5min of the 3rd and OT. Seems like the only part I needed to see. :sarcasm:

    True story. During the game, before I was able to watch, @ColePens texted that Geno and Rust belong together forever. I replied the problem is they need another speed guy on the other wing. Like McCann. :D

    Great game. Feels nice to exact a little revenge on that team.

    And Jusso Riikola is easily a top-6 dman on this team when everyone is healthy.

    Well McCann-Geno-Rust seems to be a "don't **** with this for a long time" line.

    You know what . . .

    THIS!

    Pens don't win if Murray doesn't shut the door in the 3rd, and the Isles certainly had their chances.

    Good on them for fully completing a comeback, but let’s try to not get behind 3 goals in the next game...

    @KIRK I know it's a legit strategy to just get guys tired but once they are out there long enough you actually have to start generating something for it to work :D

    As I said in the GDT, 0-3 is our comfort zone apparently. I feel like the fundamentals are there the past few weeks, crazy amount of shot attempts and once again great morale!

    I knew that if the team kept playing well, they'd eventually get some puck luck. What a win! What a game!
