8 Obvious Observations Heading Into Game 3

Pens/Canadiens Game 3 is tonight. Skipping the long winded “there’s no reason the Pens shouldn’t crush this team” Game 2 recap, here are 8 very obvious things I’d like to see happen in the series:

1. Crosby needs to score.

2. Malkin needs to score.

3. Fleury needs to play better. He’s quietly allowed 6 goals on 52 shots this series for a Save Pct. of .885.

4. Guerin and Kunitz need to do anything, ever.

5. Brooks Orpik needs to not leave dudes open in the slot then take pointless holding penalties behind the net, directly resulting in two goals.

6. Alexei Ponikarosvky has been playing more noticeably this series than he did against Ottawa, but it’d be awesome if he ever found himself in the same zipcode as the scoresheet.

7. Hal Gill needs to not be allowed to randomly bear hug dudes.

8. Halak? Whatever. Fucking score on him.

    RE: #7 on this list. . .

    The ref’s were just awful in game 2. They hardly called anything when it mattered. I remember at one point Jordan Leopold was open in front of the net with no stick. I think it was Dupuis was passing the puck to him and the Habs defenseman pretty much slashed the stick right out of his hands. No Call.

    You could read Leopold’s lips when he was yelling at the ref: “What the f&$K does he have to do for you to call something?”

    Exactly.

    Although, I do think that the non-calls went both ways, they just seemed to hurt the penguins more.

    But none of that matters if #1-6 on the list happen. Hell, just one of them.

    #9. Pascal Dupuis needs to share his secret with the rest of the team so they can turn into unstoppable forces like PD.

    2. Malkin needs to score. CHECK

    3. Fleury needs to play better. He’s quietly allowed 6 goals on 52 shots this series for a Save Pct. of .885. CHECK LIKE TIMES 20

    5. Brooks Orpik needs to not leave dudes open in the slot then take pointless holding penalties behind the net, directly resulting in two goals. SORTA CHECK

    8. Halak? Whatever. Fucking score on him. HALF CHECK

    We’ll check off number 1 and all of the above on Thursday night. . . you heard it here first!

    (p.s. Love the blog, dislike the swearing.)
