    They played like a bunch of bums for 57 minutes... They have to get their shti together! I still think they need wild man Bortuzzo in there...

    A spin-o-rama, toe-drag goal from Brooks ****ing Orpik

    If that isn't a miracle on ice, I don't know what is.


    It's a sign

    Quote of the day from Jack Off Johnson:


    Game 4 can't come fast enough. We're pretty anxious to play them again. They're nothing special. We're a pretty damn good hockey team too. We're not shying away from anything. We're in this series to win the Stanley Cup, and they're in our way to win it.

    — Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Jack Johnson said after his team's loss to the Penguins in Game 3 of their Round 1 Stanley Cup Playoffs series

    interesting...


    Any real chance Scuderi sits for Bortuzzo/Engalland?

    Dejan Kovacevic: We'll know for sure after practice, but I seriously doubt it. It's worth noting, though, that Kris Letang was paired with Olli Maatta quite a bit later in the game, and that Scuderi logged a low total of 14 minutes of ice. You might see more of that sort of thing, but a scratch ... man, imagine the embarrassment after signing him to that big contract.

    Don't misunderstand. I wouldn't play him. I'm just saying the Penguins will.



    When you say the Penguins try to control what is said and or written about the team, does that come from the PR Department, coaching staff, Shero, or even higher up?

    Dejan Kovacevic: I don't know where it originates, though I know it's manifested at the level of the communications department. No other team in Pittsburgh behaves that way. No other team which I'm aware, though they might well exist, behaves that way. The Penguins are obsessive about controlling their message, to a freakish extent.


    Heard your update on TribLive Radio. I agree 100% about Crosby. The biggest issue right now has to be that he isn't enjoying himself. Is there too much pressure on him? Is he frustrated about something?

    Dejan Kovacevic: What my point was today on Ken Laird's show was that Sid just looks like he needs to start having a little fun. As I mentioned on air, Marc-Andre Fleury looked delighted with the game afterward last night, all slumped back at his stall looking like he could use a cigarette. Brandon Sutter visibly enjoyed it, too. Sid's a little tight right now, no question.


    Craig Adams took a reckless high sticking penalty in the offensive zone in Game 2. Did Bylsma bench him the way he benched Jokinen for a similar offensive zone penalty, and if not, why not?

    Dejan Kovacevic: If I told you that there are certain players on the team who flat-out scare the coaching staff, you wouldn't believe me, so I won't bother.

    All I'm saying on that right now, too.


    Is it true the Pens D are timed by the coaching staff to make quick passes forward regardless of whether it's a safe play or not? If so, are they unhappy with this?

    Dejan Kovacevic: There are a lot of things about the current system that the Penguins' defensemen, current and former, do not like. An awful lot. That's one of them, but the biggest is the lack of protection on the forecheck. Everything has to go exactly right in the neutral zone for those guys to avoid getting killed, and everything doesn't always go right.
