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
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

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 .

Not that Canucks have potent powerplays, but when was the last time they got one? Seven periods ago?

If sportsaction had a category for which team gets the next penalty when 1 team has a 2-0 lead I would be a rich man,although the odds would be 1-1

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

We all know that Pitts will be getting at least 1 pp in the 3rd.

Sooooooo ..... Why exactly did he make the more difficult play by trying to lob it out on his backhand instead of hammering it out on his forehand . It was a dumb play . Why do you and Toopy constantly defend this scrub of a player ? It's borderline trolling and frankly fucking nauseating .

Listen to PJ and Hirsch it sounds like Pens could use Prust and Higgins. Turn up that violence.

Was thinking the same thing. Dorsett would also be a great addition for them.

Ya when you watch the replay you see he had it on the forehand with time to ring it opposite way around the boards but for some reason put it on his back hand and.....well Malkin scores.
