    The penalty was terrible...the disallowed goal is consistent though as there was the same call Thursday night in Pittsburgh though it was more obvious. It was disallowed because they said his skate pulled the goalie's stick out of the way to open the 5 hole which was where the puck went. Definitely not as clear cut as the one for the Pens though, as in that case DeSmith was already down and his stick was flat blocking the ice and was pulled out the way and to the side of the net by the first shooter and the second shooter scored a second later on the 5 hole that was opened by the stick move.

    To be fair I didn't see the goal by Chicago but if the puck is already in the paint and not frozen it is a free for all so it wouldn't be interference.

    I am amazed they made that call on McDavid when Bruce Boudreau was literally standing screaming fuck you at the referees and was caught on camera against Pittsburgh on Thursday night and they did nothing.

    I've been reading rumors of a MTL- EDM trade for Pacioretty. Not sure who we would send back, but Chairelli has lost his last few trades with over payments. Another lost trade for Pacioretty would cost him his job.

    CBJ has been sounding a likely dance partner for awhile now and I read that we had a pair of scouts at their game last night vs MIN. I would be far more interested in what they have to offer than EDM.

    So it was nice seeing the Pens roll four lines again while it lasted... Dea is back in the AHL and Rowney is back in the lineup, while Rust has been moved to the top line since Shearey is injured. So the 4th line is back to Reaves / Rowney / Kuhnhackle and will likely get 4 minutes a game in a checking role.

    Why not, I mean it worked so well for the first half of the season... oh wait no it didn't :facepalm:

    That was an insane game... both teams had a goal scored on them by their own defensemen, Holtby went nuts about something and nobody could figure out what (nobody touched him but his own defenseman but he was screaming and thrashing has arms at the refs like crazy), and a ton of goals.

    I'm curious how they look tonight against Jersey after that crazy game...

    Those are the same writers that were claiming the team was done and maybe Crosby should retire while he was on top a month ago ;)

    He thought Hornqvist was trying to pull a “Sean Avery” and intentionally block his vision when put his hand up in front of him. Looked like he was just calling for the puck or for the play to move to a certain area. He should try focusing on the puck, because he has been garbage lately.

    Hopefully the Pens show up to play tonight against Vegas... otherwise this is going to be ugly

    They can't even fail at failing anymore!:facepalm: I am hoping for 3rd last place, in order to draft high, and now they start winning! I am however still enjoying hearing about the younger players getting more opportunities at the NHL level, with potentially more to come. Also still enjoy hearing Pens general misery (and potentially miss the playoffs too?!?! :fawk:)

    I hope someone bites on Pacioretty with a Duchene-like deal. Even considering how dumb of a move that was, Pacioretty should honestly still be able fetch more.

    Here's to hoping a lot of defencemen get replaced too!

    Maybe I am just spoiled with the level of crowd-engagement here in Montreal, but I felt the Pittsburgh crowd's reaction to Fleury was underwhelming for a 3-time Cup winner.
