Tampa & Winnipeg in the final. Winnipeg wins the cup🏒🏆🇨🇦
I love that the same Caps fans who defended Tom Wilson's bullshit and told us to quit complaining about him are outraged over this. What goes around, comes around.
I miss Kunitz :(
Jesus Christ, I loved every second of it. Fuck Tom Wilson!
And then Kunitz pulled off his Lightning jersey revealing a Penguins jersey.
Remember that rumor years ago that Crosby and Malkin secretly disliked each other? So dumb.
Source is Anna Kasterova's insta but you need an account to watch so I posted a twitter mirror.
Pens 1st round draft pick in 2034? We'll probably be up for the 1st overall again.
It's awesome how these guys are friends off the ice, too. We get caught up seeing them as these NHL titans but then you have Crosby just rolling over to Geno's place to hang out. Love it.
Pittsburgh media is awful. After the 2016 Cup win, Malkin posted a photo with himself, Crosby and the Cup on Instagram and wrote "Best friends" as the caption. That basically put the kabosh to that unfounded rumor.
I felt that we could all use some positivity today.
Because there's so much Penguins news to gear up for right now?
Don't be a wet blanket. Fleury's one of the GOATs. Enjoy and appreciate said Penguin GOAT or just tune out.
Some of us are always gonna consider Fleury a Penguin. And again, there's not much else going on at the moment for Pens fans to care about, so why not let us have some positivity for one of our favorite (past) players? If you don't like it, don't click. It's really that easy.
I think Matt Murray said it perfectly and speaks for most fans too....
This made me genuinely emotional. We all know he went through a lot this season but he still came back and gave it everything he had. Matt Murray is a fighter and I couldn't be more proud to have him on this team.
Oh Big Murr... you sexy sonofabitch
Like a sexier Aaron Rodgers
Might be a little "duh" but Crosby deserves a shout out. Thanks for carrying our asses for 12 games Cap'n. Still solidifying his status one post season at a time.
12 games 9 goals 12 assists. Fire. Above average performance even for him. We demolished Philly at least. Rest up tuxedo birds. I'm grateful in a way they finally get to.
True this sentiment; it's amazing how far Crosby, Guentzel, and Murray carried this team.
Crosby Guentz Rust Hornqvist and Dumo were consistently good IMO.
Murray was ok. Maatta and Schultz and Sheahan and Oleksiak were ok. Brassard was ok but he is supposed to be more than ok. Simon was meh. Hags was ok.
Ruhwedel was shit. Sheary was shit. Kessel was shit. Malkin was eh.
I'm sick of Ruhwedel. and Sheary is problem spot too. Letang was shit but he also made up for some mistakes with goals and had some moments but yea overall shit. I used to fucking adore Sheary.
Most of Murray's goals were him being hung out to dry, deflections, turnovers, and yeah, his glove hand.
I think Malkin was alright until he got hurt...I do think Sheary was lack luster on the scorecards but if you actually watch his shifts...he's always grinding and skating harder than most on the ice... As for Kessel I think he was gassed or hurt from something not disclosed. But our line 1 was pure fire. Anytime Crosby took the ice you'd better pay attention or you'd miss greatness!
Fleury is the best. I will still root for him even if he doesn't wear the black and gold.
Smiley Flower is the best Flower. :) I'm deliriously happy for him...not a Knights fan, but a Flower fan forever. If the Penguins can't pull off a 3-peat (I'm rooting for them till the bitter end, but trying to remain realistic), I'd be thrilled to see him get it, at least. He deserves it, after everything.
he's wearing a black and gold, but not the black and gold.
Soooo, you would have rather gambled on an aging player than a young, franchise goalie who won two Stanley Cups in his rookie year? Got it.
Look, Fleury is a fantastic goalie and everyone loves what he has done for the franchise, but the FO would have been fools to keep him and expose Murray. For one, we wouldn’t be able to have the cap wiggle room with Murray and Fleury's contracts. Second, Fleury his 33, has another year on contract, and will eventually lose some of his athletic ability as he ages. Fleury is also having a career year; who knows how long he'll be able to keep this up. Murray is young and has been successful early on. This is definitely has been a down year for Murray, but he's had to deal with injury, losing his dad, and handling the responsiblity of full time starter. If a guy at 23 is able to handle all that and make it to at least the second round of the playoffs, then has a had a good year in my book.
Hindsight is always 20/20. Would it have been great to have Fleury this year? Absolutely. But could have we bet on him and other goalie prospects for the future? No. The FO made the right decision, we will be fine.
Get hyped for Game 5!
I'm just a little superstitious and this worked for game 4 so...
Get in here and FUCKING GET HYPED! Anybody's series now, I'm fucking amped. Pens in 6!
NOOT NOOT MOTHERFUCKERS!
Let’s win in 6 so we don’t have to see Tom Wilson again! LGP!
Today is my wedding day!! LETS GO PENS!!!!!
Happy cinco de Mayo and de Series everyone!
I struggled through the hot dogs, and Phil struggled through yet another game. I just have to believe that soon he will bust this slump and silence all of us who are insisting he is too hurt to play.My intestines are begging me to not continue on with this.
But what do we say to the God of Heartburn? Not today.
that's a shitpost I can get behind
Shazier celebrating makes me happy.
Ovi being taunted with a celebration makes me happy.
Shazier taunting Ovi by celebrating makes me just so damn happy I can’t explain.
When you play Pittsburgh you really do play the whole city
no kidding, Shazier, Juju, and Talbot all there and that's just who the showed on the big screen. Love it.
Joe Haden was there as well.
Apparently it was Haden's first hockey game.
