Shanny obviously going tough on the Russian contingent the past couple days, what with ovechkin and his spear and genie with the attempted elbow ....and both get nothing!!

However shanny really laid down the law on budding superstar andy sutton for a ......body check????

Equal justice for all eh Brendan???.....Oh how quickly you have become corrupted by the midget commish. sick

Convenient of the guy who cut this clip to not include the shot Giroux gave Malkin just prior.

What Giroux did isn’t going to earn a suspension and shouldn’t. Giroux started it but it was a post-whistle dust up and Malkin went over the line, if he connected there would most likely be a suspension or fine. Malkin does this type of over the edge/dirty thing too much for my liking, it’s unfortunate.

Not speaking forPaul at all, but seriously, if you have been to this site at all in the past, and are still feeling like a lonely pens fan…there’s a reason for that.  smile

If you folks have a link of what I missed, feel free to post it.

I am not calling out Malkin, this kind of thing happens often.  I just thought Giroux made a nice deke to avoid the shot.

This garage league is just getting worse.  I need to re-think whether I want to be a spectator of it.

My fantasy hockey team breathed a huge sigh of relief when Giroux avoided that!

Funny Cryer fan calling Malkin dirty, When that’s all the Cryers have been, Good Lord their Senile Owner Thinks Boobie Clarke is God, & He was Nothing but a Gutless little twat who cheap shotted guys & then hid behind the Goon Squad they had

The dirtiness of the Flyers notwithstanding, Malkin tried to head-shot a guy.

Like Paul said, this happens a lot. I’m not worked up over it.

Malkin does Incredibly Dumb shit from time to time, Like trying to go through the hole team at least once a game.

The trying to go through the whole team stuff doesn’t bother me nearly as much as these things - and taking retaliation penalties.  Because he’s more likely to do something good in the former than in the latter…

The Flyers looked pretty good last night.

The Flyers held onto the puck for long periods of time in the Pens zone those first two periods…and the Pens turned the puck over a ton the first two periods.  So, I guess I get your point.  I thought Bryzgalov looked pretty good, though…made some big saves.  They aren’t the pushover I thought they might be after trading away Captain Leadership and Carter, though.

You mean like starting a fight after the end of Game 2 of the SCF in 2009?  smile

You’re damned right I haven’t forgotten according to the rule book he should’ve been suspended.

God help me but… this.

It’s not “isolated incidents” anymore, it’s a trend.

Can you imagine the outrage when he finally gets punished for something at a time when the Pens badly need him?  Imagine him doing something unbelievably stupid in the playoffs and getting 3 or 4 games… and imagine Pens’ fan reactions of outrage, even though they’ll know he deserved it and has been getting lucky to get away with it this long.

Zetterberg twice covered the puck in the crease with his hand in the dying seconds of games.

And that Malkin moment wasn’t a brain cramp, he was electrified and electrified others.
