It's funny to me how we are cheering them now, but Boston may turn out to be our biggest rival next year.

Yeah but now is now. Besides who would you rather see win the Cup this year anyway. I say Buston! I'll hate them next season.

Pittsburgh adds 2 captains and a defenseman at the trade deadline and totally forgot that their goalies are Swiss cheese.

This is exactly what I was trying to tell everyone when they were saying "might as well just give the cup to e penguins right now" after those acquisitions. Firepower hasn't ever been their problem.

I knew there was no way Vokoun could stay solid forever. He's always been an above average goalie and Pittsburgh's D isn't good enough to cover his shortcomings.

That 1st goal Fleury allowed....lol

Although I really hate both, it's just LOL, I am sur the media, uncle NHL and all the other Pens bandwagoners are still shocked now.

Totally worth trading away the future for some scrubs *rofl*

seems like the pens acquisitions hurt them more than helped them. they are a speed and skill team. murray iginla and morrow are out of place on that team.

So did anyone else laugh when Pierre was asked who should start Game 3, he said Fleury and then like 2 seconds later Boychuk blasted one past him? lol Unless they want this series to be over quick, they need to stick with Vokoun. In the regular season, he was solid against the B's and I think he just had a bad night last night, not to mention the defense is terrible and Fleury looked like he was in his Isles/Flyers form for those two periods.

With Pittsburgh NEEDING to win two games in Boston, I have really hard time seeing them making it to the Finals now. They needed to win Game 2 and they get blown out 6-1. That speaks volumes about this series.

I've been telling people at work all along that the B's are the only team in the East that could take those chumps down and they all tell me "no, they barely got by the Leafs. The Pens are gonna win the Cup easy". They barely got by a much improved Leafs team that made the playoffs for the first time since 2 CBA's ago. They were fired up and they played great minus a collapse. The Wings barely got by the Ducks and then Hawks barely got by the Wings and now the Hawks are eating the defending champs for breakfast. What a messed up game we love.

Speaking of the Pens losing at home, today is the 5 year anniversary of when we captured our 11th Stanley Cup in Pittsburgh aka the best sports moment of my life!
