The Old Dog Still Has Bite!

Saturday, June 6, 2009

What can you say about a total ass kicking that the Detroit Red Wings laid on the Pittsburgh Penguins by a score of 5-0? Domination, suffocation, you name it - it was there. Pittsburgh had one chance and once chance only… and that was wasted in the first 5 minutes. A lousy PP and she was all over from there.

Crosby: no show. Malkin: no show. Marc-Andre Fleury: no show. I think you are getting my point! The Red Wings had their way with the Penguins, the “new NHL way” and no one does it better than them. I really don’t think Osgood had to make a tough save all night! The big red blanket of the Wings was draped all over the Pens and their efforts to create offense were just shut down. This was a crushing blow to the Penguins after coming off of a big high from Games 3 and 4. Now the question is… can they bounce back? I hope they can, but it will be tougher than most people think. I could get into making plenty of excuses for the Penguins, but this was Detroit’s finest game yet and even I can’t take that away from them. When the Wings are on, they are a real tough team to beat. Not only that, but they are allowed to do it with the comfort of the NHL’s umbrella in the new age game (very tough combo to overcome). Good luck Pittsburgh, you’re gonna need it!

One last thing. Can someone please put a cork in Pierre McGuire? What does he want the Penguins players to do? They know they can’t win the game, so you want them to just be choir boys? Sorry, Pierre. The NHL has taken just about everything that they can out of the game when it comes to physical and nasty play (something that should have a place in the game, just ask the fans) and you want some more composure? It’s alright though for Helm, Holmstrom, Franzen, Kronwall, etc. to run around and hit everything in site? Of course when they are challenged, they cower like dogs. Or in Franzen’s case, he gets hit with an elbow and then acts like he’s in excruciating pain - yet somehow manages to contribute on the ensuing PP. Give me a break! Over and out!

Good job all year Kotsy on your bog. The game how has actors in it when crosby slashed the wins player he went down like a sniper got him. I think the game yeasterday was so boring that I might give up my season tickets with the Rangers this year.

Leatherneck, Sorry to hear about your troubles. Keep your chin up and be positive because there is no other way.

I think you are right, but I don't have to like them!!!!!

I81U812, Nice name LOL. Hey, I know Detroit is a good Hockey team. However they have used the rules changes over the past few years to their advantage better than anyone. Smart? Yes! fan appealing? NO!

I just don't understand how one can cover up the BS that they get away with in this New Age NHL?
Frustrating to watch.

Whatever you do "DO NOT" give up your season tickets for the Rangers. It will get better....I hope?

I think the game last night did more for Detroit than just get them one victory closer to the cup. It likely game them confidence that they can still play their game (whether fans like it or not) and drape themselves all over the opposition. They will probably come out relaxed, with all the pressure on the Pens. This may nullify somewhat the effect of the crowd. Should the Wings get on the board first, the Finals would likely be in the books.

Jason, I would have to lean toward your way of thinking. If Pittsburgh can score first that would obviously change things, but if it's Detroit....Well as Scooby Doo always says Rut Roh LMAO.

Kotsy's Korner said...

Leatherneck, I seriously hope not, but you never know? Hang in there.

I am still not ready to comment on the tragedy that was Game 5 yet... haha

Kotsy's Korner said...

Krista Lynn, Let's face it the Pens sucked big time, but that was then and this is now.

Time to regroup and make it a series again.
