Seriously? Is Pittsburgh that clean of a team? Another penalty against.

Our penalties don't bother me, it is the no calls against us that do.

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

What a bad call on Bartkowski, refs what are they good for?

Absolutely nothing...

Is there a professional sports league anywhere that has worse officiating than the NHL?

Why throw a soft backhand up the middle of the ice? Sbisa should've fired it on the forehand around the wall and hoped it got by the defender. That soft backhand was probably the worst option.

But yeah, 5-on-3 vs that PP with a 20th ranked PK? Lucky to get out of that stretch giving up only 1.

Weird I thought most NHL players could shovel a puck out.

Does this game remind you of the Tampa game when the Lightnings got 10 powerplay?

Still odd as to why Virtanen puts himself at quite a distant from his two linemates as they battle for the puck down low along the boards with two opposing players between him. 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
