 I will eternally hate the hens.

they get a cup having been outplayed, on balance in every series.

 I've got a hell of a lot more respect for Nashville!!!

 They are officially my number two team!!

I think I hate the don't-we-expect-Pittsburgh-to-win narrative from NBC more than the hockey team itself.  Just bugs me...you know, fans narrating the games.  I'd like at least one guy in the booth to take the pro-Nashville side.

Good point!

they just add gas to the fire.

they don't even try, in my opinion, to act neutral

Did you see the articles about a week or so back where Trotz suggested favoritism of the Penguins by the NHL?

Was it Trotz or was it Leonsis?  I do remember that.  I wish tons of people in the stands would have banners and signs to that effect--for every away game Pittsburgh plays.

Conn Smythe trophy announcer, get crickets when announcing Cindy as MVP. Love it

 Never seen a more awkward hoisting of a cup!  The Nashville fans know what the deal is!

 Can't watch anymore of this stuff. 

Good night all, catch you later

Oh, it was Trotz a year ago, and Leonsis almost exactly the same time this year.

I did think I heard Leonsis' name attached to the story a few days ago on the radio (106.7).

Can't help but see the image of that flat-footed ref not doing his job behind the net on the disallowed goal.  The game still would have been close, I'm sure, but they earned that goal.

The fans should have emptied the place before the Hens lifted the cup.

That would have been funny.

So sad that hockey is over this year...but so glad I joined this forum, even I did it a bit late.  I look forward to checking in periodically this summer to see what people have to say.  See everyone soon!

it's hard not to say conspiracy. the pens always seem to get the calls. it's an embarrassment to the sport.

NBC cameras were VERY careful with closer-than normal focus angles of the hens on-ice with the cup. Rare glimpses showed sparse audience remaining from what I saw.  Especially after Nashville thanked their fans and left the ice. Sound from crowd probably turned down, as well.  Despite NBCs effort,  still heard some derogatory comments against hens!

AWKWARD, barely describes it! LOL  😂

And fitting for those damn hens who, generally speaking, were mostly outplayed in both Nashville, and Ottawa series.

Rush
