The Wild sneak their 44th shot past Allen to send it into OT.

 

Central time zone teams in the West...

 

Wasn't that an 8:45 local start too? Rough.

Something like that.  Just underway in OT at 11:30.

Well well well well well well well... Party's not so fun when you lose, is it Edmonton?

 

Gotta play the full 60. Looking at you too, St. Louis.

Edmonton loses in OT. Edmundson wins it in OT.

The playoffs sure are tiring when your team is in it. Really shoddy effort by the Oilers tonight, Sharks were all over them for most of the game, and while the refs were pretty bad the discipline has to improve or they'll get steamrolled. On to game 2!

Still not counting them out. Maybe if the Pens win Game Two I'll feel more comfortable. There were some stretches of that game where Columbus really carried the play (16-3 in shots after the first? Yeesh.)

 

Fleury isn't one to count out, either. He's backstopped two cup runs (one of which was a winner), after all. If Murray is really hurt and Fleury's the guy this spring, then I hope he's able to prove that those abysmal playoff performances for a while there were mostly due to those teams' total lack of defense.

 

I also wouldn't consider only being without Letang a "wrecked defense". If anything, it's more defensively solid without the turnover/stupid penalty/out of position machine back there.

 

Even without Letang, this isn't exactly a shaky blueline corps after him ala, say, 1996 outside of Zubov.

 

They weren't exactly giving up goals by the bushel.

First 20 minutes, Sharks looked like they were picking off where they left off last June- a step slow against a faster team.

 

And then the old guys turned it around just like that.

Game 1 of the "You bastards divided by zero series" goes to the Blues.  Yay.

In addition to that poor performance, Donatos delivered an undercooked, overcheesed pizza to my house and I felt sick after eating it.  They're usually my favorite pizza.

I was more referring to a previous poster's comments about a wrecked defense. I'm inclined to agree with you, the Pens have a damn solid defense. Even when their bottom four became the top four, they held it down this year.

You're clearly not familiar with Ron Hainsey.....
