2 PP goals and a garbage tap in. Then a fluke in the shootout

I really want to play the penguins they're easily rattled but as somebody mentioned earlier the Crosby reffing might make me lose my mind. Also it looks like fleury could redeem himself this year

So, big takeaway? For me...if our special teams can improve a bit and Z and/or E can return a little early, a series against the Pens is absolutely winnable. They only won tonight because we let them.

Nah. Guy is always out of positioning, and his saves only look amazing as a result of that. Kinda like Hasek, but he's nowhere near Hasek's league. Gustavsson is too wild in his style. No wonder he gives up so many bad goals.

This. He plays like Hasek except sucks at it. He lost us the last game we played in and he lost us this one, in both game modes. He overplays pucks and is constantly out of position, I can't stand that in a goalie. I guess resting Howard was more important than winning this game, but I'm still pissed because we needed this win to stay ahead of Columbus.

Rather play Boston tbh..would be a great series..Pitts is a dirty team

No way. They played us with respect during the season because we're new, playoffs is a different animal. Marchand would be whacking at Datsyuk every shift, Rask could be a wall. Huge motivation to win the next 2 games and hope one of the Florida teams can knock off Columbus.

And much like Hasek he also wins games very consistently, pretty well done for a clown.

Yeah....except the fact that hes only 5 games over .500 for his career......

With about 6 min left in the 3rd we finally saw the real Pavel show up. I think that may be when Pav got his groove back.

It's winnable without Z. It'll have to be too as I don't think he could or should rush back.

they have had lucky bounces in pretty much every game, and that is one of the luckiest ever there.

Our goalie sucking isn't luck.

You guys are forgetting Malkin didn't play. Not sure if he's going to be ready for the playoffs or not but he's an ENORMOUS factor. I would have loved the win to cap off a great night though. 23 years it is. Go Wings!

That's an anomaly. Team has scored more for him this season, but his save percentage isn't that good.

I can't imagine him in a 7 game playoff series. It'd be like a heart attack on every shift.

I would say when/if E comes back sit Lashoff. Kindl I think will look much better not playing with a rec league player and I hate Kindl. He has good flashes

Still think it would be a great series..we have seen Det/Pitt before..like to see 2 original 6 teams go at it.

We lost....

I meant tying, but with making the playoffs that's close enough.

Eddie is climaxing after that Pittsburgh win. I hope the smoke monster from "Lost" greets him one day. :P

Let's raid Linus's closet tomorrow tonight.

Its its been a full month since Franzen has showed up for a game...any guess on how many more it will take him to?

That little speech he made really set him straight...

LOL.

Pretty much summaries Gustavsson's goaltending skills. Totalf****** clown.

Yeah that third goal given up was pretty weak. Simple shot from Letang...

You're forgetting Cleary will be back in the playoffs.

This is the time of year he lives for. He doesn't care about the rest of the season. He rises to the occasion in the clutch, when most of us would fail under similar pressure.

Playing in Toronto can do that for you... I meant during his time with us.

But we were playing for our lives, they were playing because the schedule said they had a game tonight.

Are you forgetting that Zetterberg didnt play, and that was our backup?

And were missing our #2 d man?

The w would've been nice.

But I'm happy.
