    Horseface is out for the opener. Last times Isles played Pens without him it was a close game that could have gone either way.

    Could be our best opportunity

    They gotta go out there and be physical right from the opening faceoff. Finish your checks, hard in to the boards. And Nabby can't allow a goal in the opening 10, at least.

    Nabby's allowed a few soft goals in the opening few minutes this season. That kind of shlt ain't gonna work in the playoffs.

    Safety third.
    Well thank u for looking out! Those will never be opened. After all, they r probably worth a fortune almost like aged wine.

    I got me some ice cold recently brewed iron city waiting.

    Well **** that didn't go we'll.

    What did I say? NO GOALS IN THE FIRST TEN MINUTES! And what happens? A goal less than 4 minutes in. And where's the D? 12+ shots allowed.

    And when the puck hit the ref on the clear I said to myself "and the assist to the ref!" and three seconds later they score.

    Yup, 6 years between playoff appearances and then we get to sit through that. Gotta get the next goal to make a game out of this one.

    yeah, well that's what happens when you get the eighth seed. eighth seeds probably win ten percent of the time. but as i said before, in the nhl and nba, teams that get blown out in game one often win game 2.

    Our defense has been exposed as was previously mentioned. And oh yeah.......****in Reasoner in the line-up

    I'm doing OK because I know what the future holds but I hope Cappy makes some changes next game. This is getting embarrassing.

    They've got o one to blame but themselves for the 8th seed. Limped in to the playoffs, and it shows.

    Game 2 is a new day. Put this disaster behind you and try again.

    Maybe we'll luck out and he'll get suspended for that faux knee to knee hit. Might as well dress Boulton and plan on double shifting some other fwd. Butch was constantly calling for Cark and Boult - personally I agree. Isles couldn't do anything out there as its Martin and a bunch of midgets.

    That was brutal. Although, prefer that to an OT heartbreaker...

    Isles have only scored two goals in their last three games? Do I have that right?



    Not good. The second line carried them last month. The top line has been largely ineffective for some time now. And where has the power play gone?
