Hard not to see last night as the (somewhat recently) traditional beginning of the end just before the playoffs begin. But, as with every other year, I'm going to bury my head in the sand and hope it was just a bad dream.

I have zero concern here. This team has - for probably five seasons now - really thrown it in neutral and rolled over in games where they know they don’t have it. I’m not saying it is wrong, but I feel like the don’t want to waste the energy trying to win those games.

We gave the Caps a wedgie on Saturday so I'm not overly concerned. If we lose 2 out of our next 3 and limp into the playoffs I'll be concerned though

hi, we're a professional hockey team in the biggest and most prestigious professional league in the world. all the members of our team are highly compensated and our work environment is second to none. nevertheless we'd like you to know there are some games where we throw it in neutral and roll over because we just do-o-n-n't wanna wo-rrk that hard. waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Ahh. The old “these guys are rich and should constantly entertain me” argument. Do you constantly give 100% effort at your job? Every burger that you flip, do you strive to flip better than the previous one? Get bent.

My oops post was an edit from an incorrect point I tried to make. Gist of it is, the Penguins are champions of winning playoff series, not divisions. I seem to remember many of the recent Cup runs where they had a chance to win the division, but petered out at the end to take 2nd (or 4th - stupid 3 divisions). Once the playoffs start, we'll see where they are.

Biggest concern at this point is avoiding Boston in the playoffs. Gimme WAS or NYI any day

This is like losing when you’re the far better player at something and the other guy saying, “get rekt nub.”

Thank you for this.

You aren’t paid well because you work harder than the next guy. It’s cause you’re more talented than the next guy. The common thread being youre both humans who have to relax sometimes.

Pens lost 3-1 to the Flyers last game of regular season in 2016 and Pens lost 6-2 to the Flyers near the end of the regular season in 2017. End results were just fine.

This fanbase loses it's collective minds when it's a beating from the Flyers.

I was just about to look that up, and you saved me the trouble. Thanks, Bev.

Good for the psyche, definitely.

Hah! Yes. Those games and Morozov beating Brodeur like a rented mule were highlights of those seasons.
