In other (good) news, the streak is over, despite help from the refs and quadruple shifting Crosby.


Why wouldn't they quadruple shift him? He is the best player in the world by far right now. The hatred for Crosby makes me laugh. He might whine but he is passionate as hell about being the best. He works at the things he needs to get better at and i'm pretty sure his resume speaks for itself. He's 23 yrs old and won everything. I'm not a huge fan of him because he is a Penguin but saying the refs help them out? cmon stop being such a baby.

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

I think it was your threat to turn off the game too.


I am not watching them... have the TV on, and am in the kitchen doing dishes. One of four games I've been able to see this season, and they play like this?

All of his points have been on the PP.

Tonight he's got an even strength goal but he was also on the ice for Richards' goal, although the play was nowhere near him.

Nice save Jimmy.

Quadruple shift? It's a team game. It's ridiculous to quadruple shift him just so he can keep his precious little scoring streak alive. Now seriously, I will admit, he is the best scorer in the game. But he is not the best player, nor is he as great as everyone thinks. I'm a Canadian, and it SICKENS me everytime they show him scoring that goal in the Olympics this year.

Crosby's stats are inflated because he only plays 5-5 or on the powerplay, and the majority of the Eastern conference teams suck.

What bugs me the most is the Pittsburgh Penguins in general. The team tanked for half a dozen seasons, almost went into bankruptcy, and what does the NHL do? Here, here you go, here's Malkin, Staal, Crosby and Fleury. You deserve them for all those years of poor management and shotty GMing. The NHL should not award horrible teams with the best picks. With the salary cap now in place, any team who misses the play-offs should have an EQUAL shot at the #1 draft pick.

The other Pens players didn't even seem interested in scoring when he wasn't on the ice. Quadruple shifting him throughout the game and then having him play the first 2:00 of OT? That's not even necessarily caring about the team anymore. If anything, that's opening up a guy for injury, but hey, if that's what they wanted to do to keep a personal achievement going.

Then the refs call a too many men on the Isles in OT and why? Because a Penguins player tripped an Islanders player on the way to the bench. You can't deny that - at least in the league's eyes - it was in the league's best interest for that streak to continue.

Guess with the Pens, it really is about the name on the back, not the crest on the front.

But I digress, because I'm horribly off-topic.

Shooting gallery between Phoenix and Los Angeles in the first period, yikes. 4-3 Phoenix after 1.

spin it any way you like, the bottom line is the guy is good. 571 career points and he's only 23. that doesn't happen unless you're real good.
