    I'm a Habs fan but they aren't looking too hot.

    Best of luck to the Pens and all my Steel City friends!

    Pens up 2-0 in opening round against BJ's - MAF playing like he's 10 years younger - Sid and Geno hitting their stride. Sweet. :dancing::dancing::dancing:

    as Sonny Bono once said: "And the beat goes on.......". Up 3-0. Feel sorry for the BJ fans - they were so raucous and excited to have a playoff game at home - but it wasn't to be. Can't believe the Nashville/Blackhawk series - that's so bizarre - 2 shutouts on the road against the Hawks. Chicago worried me if we were to get to the finals against them...now maybe not.

    Pens should wrap the series up tonight, I'm glad they didn't finish them off in game 5. That would have been too long of a time off until their first game against Washington. Sometime the Pens get flat for the first game of a series if they have too many days off after closing the previous series out.
    I think the next series against the caps will be their toughest one. They are on their way to a repeat.

    I agree with the first point but Maple Leafs are tied with Caps right now and anything's possible, though not probable. I'm shocked with Nashville vs Chicago up 3-0.

    It's nice having Malkin and Kessel in a playoff pool. :hehehe:

    OK - you're prophetic on both counts - very pleased with the first, not so much on the second - Caps will be tough but........they haven't proven that come playoff time. I hope they continue in their ways. Opening on the road will be a challenge - Pens have been average on the road.

    Caps have a history of choking in the playoffs and I hope they continue also. This is the same as last year when the Caps were slight favorites and had home ice advantage. We need to repeat what we did to them last year and the rest of it should take care of itself.

    Agree 100%. I was surprised to read that the Pens have beat the Caps in 7 of 8 playoff series - sounds like Steelers and Pats in reverse. For what it's worth we split 4 games with Caps this year - each winning their two home games.
