    Yeah, Dobbs might have a Preds shirt underneath, Mr. Vols himself. Juju probably has a Kings shirt.

    The haters are out in full force for this series. Let's hope the Pens keep winning and continue to give them something to whine about.

    How do you guys feel about that 36 mins without a shot on goal? Does it worry you moving forward?

    Not really - they had just come off a very intense 2-OT game and there have been a couple of other games the Pens have "taken off" over the course of the playoffs so far. I have a feeling they will play much better tonight.

    What a job that Mike Sullivan has done since he is the HC of the Penguins.

    Especially this year with the several injuries than the penguins have had and they are 2 wins away to become the first team since 1998 to win back to back stanley cup.

    Not quite sure how to define awful here... I think they let a lot of physical play go which probably led to things escalating. More penalties "could" have been called though, but I think they let 'em play for the most part... because hockey. Everything that was called, was a penalty. Only one against Malkin for hooking was incorrect... and that gave them a 5 on 3 with the Kunitz crosscheck earlier in the play.

    Nashville is playing a physical game. Pounding the forecheck and bodying anyone given the chance. Crosby most of all. I have no issue with that, but you can't let it get out of hand. Otherwise, they will keep testing the limits based on non-calls. Sticks to the face, punch/elbow to the head, crosschecking a player... especially when already on his knees (which Subban could have gotten an embellishment), plowing a guy in front just trying to get position when the puck is nowhere near... these are all penalties that were legitimately called, imo.

    Talking about the inconsistency for both no calls and dubious called penalties

    This from Joe Starkey in the P-G today

    The officiating again was atrocious and again featured the rare “daily double” minor call — two minors whistled nearly simultaneously, resulting in a two-minute five-on-three. This time the Predators were the beneficiaries. One of those penalties was a terrible Chris Kunitz crosscheck to P.K. Subban’s head (instrument of crime: hockey stick), the other a phantom hooking call on Evgeni Malkin. Both came after a bad case of Matt-on-Matt crime: Matt Irwin’s brutal hit from behind on Matt Cullen that went uncalled.

    Pens lost game 3, 5-1, in the conference championship round and lost game 3 in the finals last year. We'll see what happens next.
