seriously. this is barely entertaining, it's ******* ludicrous. Okay, yeah it's entertaining because I can't stop laughing. Put bob in for christ sake.

Yeah it's entertaining in a different way than a couple of the previous games...I guess lol. In all the games defense has been non existent, but not quite as bad as this game thus far.

At this rate the first one to 10 will win.

I still like it though, much better than a 1-0 grinder.

And we are still whinning about Howard's bad goaltending.... he is still far better than those 2 goalies there...

This series is just a joke in terms of defense. I'd love to see Rinne in there and see if he would be as stellar as he is against us.

We pay Howard like a backup goalie and we get a good quality starter out of him. Howard is NOT the problem on our team at all.

I wish Nashville were playing this loose...we would have put 6 a night on him with all of our talent. Too bad there's no room to move...

goaltender

noun

1. the soccer or hockey player assigned to protect the goal [syn: goalkeeper]

2. the defensive position on an ice hockey or soccer or lacrosse team who stands in front of the goal and tries to prevent opposing players from scoring [syn: goalkeeper]

For the goalies who seem to have forgot.

Yeah but they have defense....Game 3 and 4 so many blocks to cover empty nets.... in here defense is inexistent such as goaltending.... scary knowing that you can't sit back with a huge lead in this series. I mean leading 3-0, if you support the losing team at that time you're like ok we'll come back. In our series, when nashville takes a 1 goal lead you suddenly (as a supporter) have the fear we won't be able to come back....

The difference between those two series is stunning.

Definitely stunning differences...I have to think the rivalry in the pitt series is playing a part. The teams hate everybody on the opposing team. It's a real hate-fest. Probably to the point each wants to embarrass the other and take cheap shots to injure each other. I don't think in any other circumstance that both of these teams are THAT bad defensively.

Mind boggling though some of the goals allowed by both goalies...some really atrocious goals, starting with the first one tonight.

Does anyone take Pierre seriously when he talks? I wish they'd fire his ass...he's an idiot.

The pitt fans don't even like him...and that's surprising since he's up Pitt's ass.

Well this is what we miss during the playoffs. The only rivalry we had the past 6 years (penguins aside) have been Anaheim and San Jose... Rivalry we could somewhat still notice during the regular season.

What's surprising is the fact that it will take this series to finally maybe start one (well i would have loved to see more actions like game 2).... in the end we have been one more time too much of gentlemen during the playoffs....
