    Nope, though it has gotten a bit more entertaining with 3v3. You can't just glide the whole game or you get embarrassed. Forces them to show a little effort anyway.

    Going to be interesting to see if the Pens can stay on this roll and get into the playoffs. They looked great today aside from taking WAY too many stupid penalties (7 IIRC)

    I guess it would be fair to say that Vegas are now the Cup favorite??

    Seems insane, doesn't it? On the bright side if he stays healthy Fleury might finally get the respect he's always deserved as a goaltender :lol:

    It was hard to tell the Caps were even on the ice. Not only did they lose, it was to a goalie waived twice this year with a 871SV% and 4.44GAA. Beach week was not kind to them, two straight garbage games. I’m thinking the top it off with a bad loss to the Flyers on Sunday afternoon.

    They need to at least rally and beat Philly to keep them behind the Pens :p

    And with the 2-1 loss, made it 0-3 after beach week. 3 games in 4 days never helps, but man do I hate the stupid mandatory break.

    3 games in 4 days is like the Pens whole schedule this year :lol: I think the Pens may have been the only team so far this year that looked better after the break though...

    Isn't this every year? Average starts, then Crosby or Malkin carry the team at a blistering pace into the playoffs?

    IIRC they actually looked terrible after the bye week last year... I think they lost 4 in a row. The last two years they have heated up in the second half of the season though. There was also a lot of depth scoring / pressure that I've only seen from them in a handful of games so far this season.

    They've lost 2 of their last 3 games and the teams behind them are close and have several games in hand so I'll be happy if they make the playoffs this year.
