  1. Tyler Kennedy? Just sayin’

  2. Hope the pens continue aggressive PK and pressure the puck carrier both in and out of the zone. And they continue with defensively responsible play in their own end.

  3. Tonight’s game is also on NHL Network

  4. Man they look terrible, FIRE them all :-)

  5. 12:53 1st shot ! Strange Days!

  6. Yikes crappy start….
    And no that wasn’t “FIRE BYLSMA”

    It was “yikes, crappy start”

  7. Are they hoping the Islanders wear themselves out? Really fortunate to only be down by one goal. Could’ve had some penalties called on them too. Just need to keep this close going into the 3rd.

  8. The only way Glass scores a goal this year is a deflection off his body. He may as well not even carry a hockey stick – he can hit without it.

  9. Really outta sync- nothin clickin- have not seen this in a while.
    I have not posted a “Go Pens” yet tonight maybe thats it! LOL
    OK I done it , maybe get the voodoo hoodo workin!

  10. What a backhand pass! Good gracious….

  11. If they keep this up, they’re NEVER gonna get this guy fired.

    Go Pens

  12. Georgetown loses!! Now Pitt doesn’t have to feel too bad. They only lost to a #9 team that was a mirror image of themselves. Georgetown was a #2 losing to #15! Ha Ha Ha!! Let’s go Pens. Get another goal to gets some breathing room.

  13. More brilliance from Orpik.

  14. 11 in a row for Pens, I hear their coach sucks….

  15. Abysmal 1st period and Pens comeback to win from 1-0 and 2-1 deficits to beat the lowly Islanders 4-2.

    Another solid performance by Martin and Sutter.

    Great work by Vokoun

  16. Playing much better defense. Unreal how much better Paul Martin is this year. Vokoun looked shaky at times with his glove, but got the job done.

  17. From a sports perspective, something historic is happening here.

  18. Dang who you going to fire now?

    Trevor Smith looked pretty good as well. not afraid to get in the corners and fight for the puck.

    • Premature crowing about Bylsma’s job status until we see how the team and he perform in the playoffs.

      Things are going great right now. He made some adjustments, we’ll see how it finishes and if they play well in the playoffs and make it out of the first round, I’ll gladly eat crow.

      • With Bylsma and Dixon the grass is green, it’s not always on the other side.

        I would rather have someone get me to the promise land. Once there, it is up to me to own it and make something of it..
