Is a complete Ranger implosion in the 3rd period too much to ask for? It probably is.

Rags do tend to lose composure every now and again.  But I wouldn't count on it.  The Pens just need to be smart.  But that's something they just don't ever seem to be good at.

Penguins look frustrated.

Can't believe they've let the Rangers back in..

I knew it would go 7 when Pittsburgh took a dump in game 5.

There's just a sense of inevitability here. Similar to what I was feeling with the Kings and Sharks.

We need the Penguins to win on Tuesday. Obviously I want the Rangers out as soon as possible but a Penguins loss might actually force to Shero to make the changes necessary for the Pens to become a playoff force. I mean how many times do you have to watch guys like James Neal, MAF and Letang melt down in the playoffs before you try something different. Isn't that the definition of insanity?

Penguins suck, at this point ill be surprised if the Rangers don't win game 7. Oh well, I wouldn't expect anything less.

 

At this point I'd be shocked if they don't win Game 7.  Hell I'd be surprised if the Wild don't beat the Hawks at this point for that matter...the Hawks look like they caught hubris disease.

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

Yeah, in first rounds against sh!t teams. He can't run with the big dogs in the late rounds

 

When has Lundqvist ever had the better team and lost in a series?  I can't even say '09 against the Caps though they were 3-1 up.

Under Bylsma, Pens are 1-7 at home when having a chance to clinch a series. They are 2-6 all-time in Game 7s at home.

Play with "worst case scenario, Game 7's at home" in mind, and the worst case scenario will happen.  Great job, Pens.  Better not blow it.

When has he ever had a weaker team and won is the question that I think we should be asking. The great ones find a way. If he wins in Pittsburgh Tuesday more power to him, that would probably be the biggest thing he's done in the postseason.

Bylsma really is awful. Nobody does less with more

Totally unfair. Unless you are saying Brodeur is not a great one. I can't think of one series where Brodeur ever found a way to win a series by himself or was the big difference for an underdog Devils playoff team.

 

Hate the Rangers. Hate Lundqvist, but let's not bring him down unfairly.

2003 Ottawa comes to mind right off the bat. People talk about Hank like he's a tremendous big game player or the second coming. Even the "king" moniker. What exactly has he won? In ten years in the league he has one trip to the conference finals where he was out dueled by a 40 year old

I wouldn't say Brodeur was the difference. The Sens had a lot more talent, but the Devils were a historically good defensive team and Lalime was terrible at times. You need a better example than that.

 

I get many of you are around Rangers fans that want to crown him as the greatest goalie. He isn't that, but he is a damn good goalie and one of the best in the NHL. He's won an Olympic Gold. That's something.

 

If he loses this series, does he deserve to take blame? I guess it depends on what happens in game 7, but the Rangers have been shutout twice. They are the underdogs and Lundqvist has done his job to get them here.

 

A lot of success is all about situations, and Brodeur has been great but also in great situations. Lundqvist has not been in great situations. But guess what, he's got time, and he still has a chance to win a game 7 again.
