Sad, but true.

At least they aren't the 2004-present Washington Capitals though!

You gotta remember; the Penguins are coached by the same guy who coached the second-most talented team in the 2014 Winter Olympics off the medals podium altogether, and had the players openly questioning his gameplan in the aftermath.

The trouble with being a fan is when you know that somebody is holding your team back and preventing them from being all they can be, like Dan Bylsma is with the Penguins. On one hand, if they win, then it just gives everybody a false sense of hope, and the problem remains. On the other hand, people will label you a dick if you'd rather the team blow the short term out its ass in order to finally get the problem removed and the team better positioned (and coached) for the long term.

Seabrook got three games for this.



Then, Duncan Keith proceeded to say "Wakey Wakey, Backes" to a concussed player. The logical response is disgust, but Blackhawk fans have different ideas:

They made shirts. Spoilers for language.

 
I hope we sweep them out of their own fucking building. Pieces of shit.

There's definitely something to what you say.

Overall though, I think it's just time to move on. It's not all Bylsma's fault, but after five years (assuming another pre-Cup Final exit) it's pretty obvious that this team needs a new motivator.

It will be an unfortunate circumstance due to stakes.

Danny boy has a few rounds to get things done though.

Stay Classy, Blackhawks fans. That is just disgusting. If it would've happened to one of their players, they would be raising all kinds of hell.

As for the Pens tonight. I missed the game, but I DVR'd it. I had checked the score on my way home and saw that we were down 3-1 in the 3rd. I almost deleted it without watching it. Then I saw on Facebook that we came back to win 4-3. So I watched a fast replay of the game to see the goals. It definitely put me in a better mood. Orpik's goal with less than 1 second left in the 2nd period was great and it seemed to spark the team in the 3rd. They could've easily went flat again after Columbus scored early in the 3rd, but they kept up the pressure. Maata's goal was deflected off of 2 Blue Jackets before it went it. I loved that.

They were lucky to escape with this win though. I'm so sick of them playing flat in the playoffs. Sid, Malkin, Neal, and Kunitz need to wake up. At this point, even if we win this series, we won't make it beyond the second series.

Chicago sports fans are just like Pittsburgh sports fans: nice compared to sports fans in New York, Philadelphia, Boston and Los Angeles, but total fucking assholes compared to everybody else. You can also group Detroit, San Francisco and Washington DC in with us. Even Cleveland sports fans are too nice for this group, mainly due to having more humility.
