    What was that? The only thing I can figure is that we went in thinking that since we kicked their asses last time, it would be easy, and weren't as prepared as we should be. That and with Crosby back, we were way too overconfident.

    *it's only game 2. it's only game 2. it's only game 2.*

    The Pens power play is awe-inducing. Excellent fight from the Isles last night, making Pittsburgh earn it.

    The Pens have been great on the power play, but the Islanders have been carrying the 5-on-5 action...that's how favorites get upset in the playoffs. Pens can't continue to allow the Islanders to out shoot them.

    And Fleury needs to be better as well

    Okposo is also playing out of his mind.

    Meh, I've been focusing on the World Hockey Championships since the Jets missed the playoffs.

    Probably would have won if it wasn't for those freaking turnovers and a couple of defensive breakdowns, Gardiner was great though

    Yeah but you can't put it on him entirely. The Pen's are making sloppy passes in the neutral zone, terrible fore checking and aren't playing the system when up.

    Yea, totally, but Game 2 is on him especially that game winning goal, that was terrible

    I haven't been able to watch much of the playoffs yet since I spent last week in Hawaii for a friend's wedding (tragic I know). But I'm going to Game 4 in San Jose tonight and I am totes excited! [face_dancing]

    Go Sharks!

    Yes, that wasn't his finest moment, but he's done reasonably well. He had some nice saves in Games 1 and 3.

    I dunno if I can watch Game 4 tonight. I feel like crap (sinus/cough/general grossness) and I all want to do is sleep. But...playoffs :(.

    Take a nap, get some fluids and be ready for puck drop.

    SWEEP!!!

    Great game tonight but the Sharks had me nervous in the 3rd. Thankfully we had another clutch playoff goal from Patrick "Gutless" Marleau. Man, I have no voice now. :p

    When was the last time the Islanders won a playoff series?

    EDIT That would be 92-93, when they beat the Caps and Pens before losing to Les Habitants.

    One of my co-workers insists that the finals will be Pittsburgh/San Jose.
