Crosby admits Pens didn’t ‘deserve’ to win Game 2

Even with a 3-1 lead, Sidney Crosby seemed concerned about his team’s play during a first intermission interview with Pierre McGuire on Friday. In hindsight, that discussion foreshadowed the Pittsburgh Penguins’ 4-3 defeat to the New York Islanders in Game 2.

With that in mind, it’s not surprising that Crosby was critical of his team’s play.

“We know that we didn’t play the way we needed to,” Crosby said. “I don’t think we feel like we did enough to deserve that one”

Still, the 25-year-old said that the Penguins need to put it out of their minds as Sunday’s Game 3 approaches.

“That’s the playoffs,” Crosby said. “You can’t dwell on things whether you win or lose. You’ve gotta turn the page pretty quick.”

In other words, the Penguins can’t panic.

    So how many articles can be posted about the same game in one hour? It was a good game, no doubt, but pump ya brakes.

    Pens were sloppy tonight. It could be a bi-product of never even having this lineup on the ice together all year. Either way, they have to regroup and not play so frenetically on the rush.

    Let’s see if the isles can handle all the adrenaline in game 3. They’re not a good home team, but great on the road. The Isles were one game under .500 at home this year. It won’t be easy.

    Gotta thank the isles for one thing keeping Pierre McGuire quiet for at least the last five minutes of the game man talk
    about a homer for the pens

    Jumpin’ Jiminy Crickets! How did this happen?

    It’s Stanley Cup Hockey, that’s how!

    There are no absolutes..except that the playoffs are a grueling march and the team with grit and determination wins it.

    Oh ok sid,,,,,,, thanks for your approval now go brush your teeth ! Sid just one question do you hate the Flylanders more than Flyers ! Sids answer I don’t like they why because I don’t like them !

      Damn eiggles ever hear of xanax? You need to relax with the excessive comments on Pens pages. I know it’s exciting to see that the Pens are mortal afterall, not the infallible Greek gods we’ve been hearing about all season, but you’re just continuing the cycle of trolling. And, in many comments, making Philly fans look like idiots. Try to limit your posts to 2-3 per page, instead of your usual 10-15.

      As for the game, it was pretty exciting. The Isles looked like a different team from game 1. And Fleury’s play looked a little reminiscent of last years playoffs. I wouldn’t be worried if I was a Pens fan, but maybe a little doubt would be creeping into the back of my mind about my franchise netminders psyche. For the Isles to have a chance they obviously have to take advantage of these next two games on home ice. They’re not a great home team so we’ll see.

      • eigglesnosuperbowls - May 4, 2013 at 1:53 PM

        I don’t care what you think so try and limit your post to 2-3 words !

      • phillyphanatic77 - May 4, 2013 at 2:06 PM

        I’ll try. Good?

  7. bobhpine - May 3, 2013 at 11:32 PM

    I’m so sorry this is all that you have to do man. For as much as you write, and it’s a staggering amount, it’s all unintelligent schadenfreude. I hope you find a life a little more meaningful than this. Eigglesnospuerbowls deserves our sympathy.

    • eigglesnosuperbowls - May 4, 2013 at 8:04 AM

      I will stop when the pens are eliminated! Man up,, sack up,, put your big boy panties on do what ever you have to do to deal with me I told you I would see you in the first round and maybe beyond even though its looking kind of shakey for ya right now ! LETS GO FLYLANDERS CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP !!

      Dude I see your posts on Flyers posts all the time, you do the same thing. I’ll admit I do not condone what Eiggles is doing, that his posts are terrible, and that I have difficulty understanding them, but for you to do the same thing and then complain about it is weak sauce. Sack up

    Hard to believe the dedication some of these trollers have in hating the penguins. I think eiggles has commented on every single pens related article this entire season. Then he brings them up in articles not even related to the pens. If you dislike the team/players so much, why do you pay so much attention to them?

    Seriously man, is hating Crosby and the pens the most important thing in your life? There are plenty of sports teams and players that I despise, but your unrelenting commitment spewing hateful nonsense is inexplicable to me. I know you get some sort of strange satisfaction in annoying other hockey fans, which in itself is a weird and sad way to get your kicks, but at the risk of sounding cliché, you really need to get a life, or a dog, or a hobby.

    I should mention, if your posts were at least creative and funny, it’d be worth your time, but you just repeat the same mindless dribble over and over. You have the passion, but lack the delivery. Take some creative writing classes or listen to some stand up comedians so you can get some ideas for better material.

    • valoisvipers - May 4, 2013 at 1:42 AM

      Great post and you deserve a slow clap and eiggles need to grow up or get banned from PHT.

      • eigglesnosuperbowls - May 4, 2013 at 7:47 AM

        You deserve a slow slap ! Your statement ” I deserve to be banned from PHT ” shows you deserve a slow slap ! None of my post are vulgar for starters … PHT don’t care how many times you post if they did there would be a daily limit in fact post are what they are in business for here ! In fact I would love to count the amount of post my post are responsable for,,, so its a win win for PHT ! So it comes down to the only reason I can think of just, as sid said about my FLYERS “I don’t like them ” I should be banned because I don’t like sid’s team ! You deserve a slow slop slap ! Get use to it Iam here to stay until the pens get bounced ! This is the entitlement the pens fans think they have that they can get actually some one banned for not agreeing with them on their wittle hockey club LETS GO FLYLANDERS !

      • broadstreetbeatdown - May 4, 2013 at 5:26 PM

        Wow he should get banned for posting things that are not flattering to the Penguins? Man, thats the height of arrogance. You should be banned, for ummmm being a dope.

    • eigglesnosuperbowls - May 4, 2013 at 7:35 AM

      Your right and I will comment right up to the minutes after they get bounced out of the first round again this year ! LETS GO FLYLANDERS

      Thank you for noticing my dedication bro ! Now lets get to your long winded bloviating speech that took you all day to craft ! I don’t care what you think ! So pretty much you just wasted a whole day crafting a speech that has no impact !

      • billsboy88 - May 4, 2013 at 12:04 PM

        Took me minutes to craft considering I’m a writer…

      • eigglesnosuperbowls - May 4, 2013 at 12:19 PM

        Not a very good one !

      he brings it up for two reasons, he probably on welfare and has a lot of time on his hands and two, he gets a response from pens fans. leave him go root for the phillies and ignore him.

      • eigglesnosuperbowls - May 4, 2013 at 11:25 AM

        Quite the opposite on the finances very wealthy “STRAIGHT CASH HOMIE ” ! Number two… you are correct sir I love that these yinzers can’t take it ! R u a yinzer ?

      • broadstreetbeatdown - May 4, 2013 at 5:30 PM

        Yes, he is a yinzer. Apparently the fanboy legion can dish t out but can’t take it.

  9. amehta256 - May 4, 2013 at 1:46 AM

    Crosby is amazing

  10. operwapitsai - May 4, 2013 at 2:09 AM

    again…. just like I said a few posts ago. enough about the same stuff about your homer teams. can we have some coverage of the other 15 teams in the playoffs or even the other 29 in the entire league. anyway im a caps fan and I say 2 articles about the caps after their win in game 1 And about 4 or 4 about the pens when they weren’t even playing. wtf guys…

    • nicknyhc - May 4, 2013 at 3:50 AM

      Agreed. I’m a Rangers fan, and I’ve noticed that the Caps and Rangers are the two teams the PHT writers like to hate on. They called last year’s Rangers/Caps series a “snoozer” in another article. Guys are the biggest Pittsburgh homers.

      Does NBC give out bonus paychecks for hyping the Pens?

      • drone501 - May 4, 2013 at 8:57 AM

        yeah i think they do.

  11. letsgopens8771 - May 4, 2013 at 7:20 AM

    No need to fret. The clock will strike midnight for Cinderella real soon.
