07:31 AM ET 11.21 | After being run out of his own building by the Pens on Wednesday, coach Adam Oates was in no mood to sugarcoat anything. The building, which was filled with electricity at the start, fell quiet in the third period, except for occasional boos and a loud cheer when James Neal made it 4-0 on another unscreened shot. ... "We're not the type of team that's going to go out and have three guys start a fight," Oates said, referencing the Nov. 1 donneybrook with the Flyers in Philadelphia . "That's not who we are. We all know. We're all big people here. The air gets taken out of the building. The fans are booing. They have a right to boo. They're frustrated, too. We had done well at home before tonight. You gotta take your poison."

Wow....if I could make deflections like that, I could lead the league in scoring

Ugly game by the Caps.

And I mean Rosie O'Donnell ugly.

I am not going to put down the Caps. They get plenty of that everywhere. Just gonna say anytime Malkin would like to remove that ugly head from his arse and play to his potential, it would be fab-u-lous!

Sick goal by Sid.

I am glad we are getting a break from the "Rivalry" night, as I can't take PM sucking off the other team. It is ridiculous. Better them than us though.

finally, someone that isn't a total nancy boy.

From a non-partisan.... very puzzling game by the Caps. I expected a great matchup and was disappointed. Pitt did a great job keeping the pressure off MAF

Indeed, to Sid's goal

PM? .... nothing else to say

If Holtby makes a couple decent saves, its an entirely different game. I didn't think the Pens played all that well last night, but when you can score on a wrist shot from the blue line, you don't really have to come with your "A" game.

Epic fail on the warning. Watch the above at your own risk. :-)

Wait...What?

What exactly don't you understand?

Last three rivalry nights, when the Pens would do something right, PM could only comment on how it was because (basically) the Pens "got lucky," they didn't deserve the goal, etc., etc.

Just proves my point that contrary to popular believe around HERE, he does NOT have any bias for the Pens. Quite opposite. He had to acknowledge the above goal (although "cute") otherwise, he would look like even a bigger idiot. Although, I am surprised he didn't suggest the Pens didn't get "lucky."

I didn't notice this, but ripping PM is never a bad thing

The man doesn't bother me as much as the rest of you. However, I just disagree with him having Pen/Crosby fever. Just don't see it. He's been ridiculous the last few times.

Here was a doozy (not verbatim), goal off a face-off: "The only reason the Pens got that goal is because the Caps couldn't get their tired guys off the ice because of the icing. They got lucky."

Oh, then we don't need to pay them all that money. Good to know.

A quick look at the schedule showed the last two Wednesday nights (i'm guessing that's what rivalry night is) before last night the Pens lost 2-1 and 4-1. Maybe he was calling them lucky because they were playing like crap? You can only polish a turd so much, even if you've got 87 tattooed on your lower back like Pierre does.

Sure, if the turd you are polishing is Claudine and the Cryers.

I watched the games. You have your opinion. I watched the games. I have mine.
