Explain one thing to me Blob. Why are teams that are losing by 2 goals get the next PP 80% of the time?

Is that a statistical fact? Or is that an optics stat?

Yeah it's not like he had nothing but room to get rid of it. He had a guy all over him not to mention it was 5 on 3, but hey feel free to say stupid shit, it's entertaining
bu bu bu bu bub butttttttt garrett said he had plenty of time

3 of the Pens goals were poorly played by Miller. as outstanding as he's been, does he get a break on this game?

Does he not realize that when the puck comes loose those opposing players hanging outside the scrum will gain control of the puck. I don't get it
No shit why doesn't he just fly into the fray with them ? They should all be arms lengths apart right !? Support the puck for fuck sakes .
Lol, you don't think Jake is a little lost in this situation? Sometimes
hes as far away from the board battle as his his own defenceman who are manning the point
Honestly I noticed the same thing in the last two WJC he participated in . I'm curious if he has a bit of a concern to make sure he gets his ass back into his own zone because he has been burned defensively in the past . I get being high in the zone to accept a pass and get a good shot off but he seems to be too far away . I don't think anyone is ever going to refer to him as a crafty player
That's my take, caution.

Weird I thought most NHL players could shovel a puck out.
And Sbisa is the only D man in the NHL on a 5-3 PK with pressure on him to fail at clearing a puck out? Let's do the math, there are two less players on the ice to help support Sbisa, lessening his options by 40% which may explain the open ice for the Pittsburgh players 5 man unit to get one of their extra two players on top of Sbisa as he attempts to clear puck, but hey carry on with your great analysis of the play
Great point, it was a great play and I'm just betting coaches around the league hope their D start lobbing waffles up the middle of the ice.

I was merely pointing out that Topper has called out Sbisa's abilities with the puck on his backhand a few times now. He would have had better luck hammering it up the glass the other way. At least the PK could have set up even ic their d blocked it.
The canucks had no-one on that side, over the was not a bad decision

Lol I like the no time excuse . He took the time to move the puck to his backhand to lob the beachball to the point because obviously that's way tougher to handle then a slap shot blasted off the boards . These guys are fucking hilarious .

Fuck me am I hungover , or maybe drunk again ... Not sure .

You are still blind drunk. Host that pewter tankards of warm urine, IN just removed the teabag, and toast a Canuck loss.

A wake make on my save on points was a great deal. Made my kid waffles this morning for breakfast.
