    Ouch :rofl:

    Reminds me of some of the Pens schedule last year, except it would have been 2 back to back games as well...

    Acquisition of LA King's Thompson today and my only thought is: "How does a player I have never heard of have a no-trade clause?" :lol:

    Probably because he is a veteran player with almost 700 games.

    The guy is on the final year of a 2-year contract @ 1.6 AAV I believe... he must be the greatest 4th line center of all time to have negociated a NTC into that.

    Leafs outshot the Rangers 56-30 and lost 4-1. That was one of the most crazy goaltending displays I'd seen in a while from Georgiev. Sparks actually played pretty well and made some Monster saves but he looked bush league compared the Ranger's goalie. Leafs dominated the game for the most part, definitely chalk this one up to the, "Shit Happens," category.

    Seems like there's been a lot of that going around... Flyers outshot the Pens 51-28 and lost 4-1 :lol: Of course the Pens played most of that game with 5D since Maata got hurt. Murray was amazing. The Pens took the 2nd period off and gave up 28 shots.... and then Flyers only got one in the net on a 5 minute major powerplay at the end of the 3rd.

    Bunch of insane games lately...

    Also congrats to Malkin for being back from injury for one game and managing to get suspended :facepalm:

    Final was 8-7 :nuts:

    That weird moment when the Pens are paying Carl Hagelin to play for the Caps...

    All it currently takes to make it into Western Conference wildcard position is to be marginally above .500 :barf:

    Meanwhile in the East, 10 game over .500 :frantic:

    Looks like Columbus is going for broke, they just traded to get Duchene as a rental and gave up 2 first round picks to do it.

    I believe the 2019 1st rounder is guaranteed, but the 2020 1st rounder is conditional on Duchene resigning.

    I don't know much about the prospects, but it almost salvages the terrible deal they made to acquire Duchene in the first place. The real tragedy here is that they gave away their own 1st rounder to Colorado, which could very well end up being Hughes.

    Eh, it's Ottawa. They're one of those weird teams like the Oilers that have proved that no matter how much talent they have they can never seem to be better than decent.

    Maybe Columbus will manage to make it out of the first round this year...

    Yeah they are insane... I can't believe Kucherov has 100 points already :nuts:

    Assuming the Pens hold it together and make it in I don't see them going deep this year but it should be a fun playoffs regardless. Going to be a lot of great series.

    Well, that may be the end of the Pens season... Letang and Dumoulin were both injured on the same sequence in the first period of this stadium game. Pens are nowhere near deep enough to hold up with all three of their best defensive defensmen out for any period of time and Maata is already out indefinitely.

    I'm also hating this pairing of Johnson and Schultz as Schultz is MUCH better offensively than Johnson but Johnson keeps jumping up so Schultz is forced to play back.

    EDIT: Dumoulin has a concussion and Letang is being evaluated for an upper body injury. I also put the loss last night squarely on Murray.. that game tying goal he let in should never end up in the net. Just a huge let down after outplaying Philly with 4 D to give up a 3-1 lead and lose in OT.

    I feel that. I'm still incredibly pissed off we gave up a 3-0 lead to Toronto. Let them come back in the 2nd period with 2 powerplay goals (one of the penalties was completely careless and unnecessary), eventually giving up the go-ahead goal with 2 minutes left in the game and an empty netter to add insult to injury. Meanwhile every other team in the playoff race got points last night.

    2 Empty netters. The game was a lot closer than the scoreboard would lead one to believe. Still, Toronto was already on their worst losing streak of the season, so I'll take a sloppy not as dominate as the score makes it look win.
