I don't even feel like writing about this one - it was just that damn bad. Thibault kept the team in the game for awhile, but he couldn't stop Olli Jokinen from anywhere, especially on a slap shot. You have to think that Fleury would have been fast enough to rob Jokinen on his two slapper goals - I can't remember Fleury getting beat much on those.
The Pens were sluggish again. They're appearing on national television this Saturday afternoon in Philly. That would be really embarrassing if they were beat by the Flyers, especially now that Floppa is back playing.
The Pens need to get the ship righted, and do so in a hurry - these inconsistent efforts won't get them into the playoffs.
My oddity of the night - have you ever seen so many players tossed from the face off circle in one game? Especially the Panthers - Jokinen was tossed twice in the second period alone...
Next up: at Philadelphia on Saturday. I wouldn't want to be a Flightless Bird for the next two plus days... I get the feeling Therrien won't have nice things to say after tonight.
