    On this night, @Bingo71 eternal pessimism > @ColePens eternal optimism . . .

    Jokes aside, you have to tip your cap to Greiss, because he read EVERYTHING the Pens were throwing his way.

    Sometimes the other goalie is just dialed in.

    I mean... ++++ Greiss. He absolutely won them that game. That's all I can say.

    Gotta give credit where it's due. He was freaking incredible.

    Did the team ever get off the plane? They seemed slow out there tonight.

    Garbage effort. Garbage result.

    They absolutely CANNOT take it to a SO with Murray in net. No way.

    And the “stars” better figure out how to score on breakaway goals. It’s the same tired, lackluster garbage that doesn’t work time and time again.

    Isles gain 3 points on the Pens in two games...

    Greiss pulled that one out of his butt. Not much else the Pens could do.

    Does Murray have to do everything for this team?

    Every tendency. The Geno one timer on the PP. Phil's wrister. The poke check on Sid. Everything. He was one step ahead of every Penguins shooter. Sometimes, you just have to tip your cap and call it a night.

    Greiss was the difference. The team with the best goaltending usually wins the game.

    I'm not really worried.

    The last two games look like a team that should've won games versus where we were at to start the season where we were winning games we should have lost.

    Murray looks dialed in.

    Letang looks off still.

    Props to Sprong for stringing together some good games.

    Johnson was terrible on the 2 - 1 goal. Dude is seriously costing us every time he is on the ice. Coaching staff is noticing. Wouldn't be surprised if my absurd prediction of him being a scratch by January actually becomes true. What an absolutely mind numbing contract.

    Third line was pretty much a no show on the offensive side and out there for the Isles' ES goal, although that was a great play by Lee. Hopefully Brassard will come back soon.

    Guess that Canada trip wore them out.

    It’s not even Murray that bothers me in shootouts. It’s the guys on our side trying to score. They lollygag down the ice and then just ho-hum throw it on the net...if they even hit the net. Frustrating.

    The Barry Trotz Factor.

    Don’t matter the horses. Holtby, Greiss. Ovi, Bailey. Carlson, Cizikas. The man knows how to beat this team.

    I don't even know how you can complain about that game, it was a great game by both teams in November. One team has to lose every game. No one really stood out as being a minus, the closest is Grant who is continuing his best "warm body" impression.

    I don't even care that the Penguins suck in shootouts tbh, there aren't any shootouts in the playoffs.
