Shesterkin Taunts Penguins During Postgame Scrum

Pittsburgh Penguins, Igor Shesterkin taunts Pens

Things did not go well for the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday night. Sidney Crosby, John Marino, and Radim Zohorna were sick (non-COVID). The New York Rangers beat them for the third time in two weeks. Igor Shesterkin had an answer for the Penguins best scoring chances.

On Thursday, New York beat the Penguins 3-0 at Madison Square Garden, but things got chippy late in the third.

Old school hockey message sending, you know.

Penguins defenseman Mark Friedman was in the lineup. He’s been platooning with Marcus Pettersson, but Marino’s illness guaranteed the Penguins resident pot-stir a lineup spot on Thursday.

Things heated when Penguins fourth-line forward Anthony Angello leveled Tyler Motte later in the third period. Motte had his head down, and Angello was on his way to make contact, but Angello’s hit contacted the shoulder/head area, and Motte laid on the ice after the hit.

During a late third period Penguins power play, Evgeni Malkin and Rangers forward Barclay Goodrow tangled. Mark Friedman subsequently tangled with a couple of Rangers. And, at the final horn, Friedman got a good shot on Krieder again.

Bodies hit the ice, and the Pittsburgh Penguins did not leave the ice for a few minutes, thus delaying the Rangers customary center-ice celebration after wins.

Shesterkin, who stopped all 30 shots, bid the Penguins adieu. The goalie mockingly waved goodbye as the Penguins began to exit.

My view….
#1. Tonight was Geno and Letangs chance to show Hex that they are needed next year….they failed
#2. The Pens don’t want to show their A game and will catch everyone off guard…..LOL.
#3. As a Pens fan thank you ESPN + for not letting me watch this and secondly how can any fan be looking forward to the playoffs. This virus will probably hit Jarry in a few weeks. Every team in the east must want the Pens the first round. No bright spots at all.

What about 2 weeks ago when they got their asses handed to them 5-1? Who blew that chance to show what they’re made of?

Try again…and please do better next time

Sid was in that 5-1 game and Geno was on the second line.
I’m betting the Rangers would want an easy team in the first round and are glad it’s the Pens and not the Capitals

Did you think SJ would bounce VGK in the first round back in 2019? Did you place a bet on the Blues winning the cup that year back in January? You know, you never know.

Pens can’t score in Shesterkin. I’d do the same. Rangers in 5.

No because that is an Americanization of my family name, my grandparents came from the general Ukrainian region, that is why I hate Russians.

Please search Sullivan saying I/We believe in this group”

Search after the Montreal series sweep. Search after the islanders First Round series sweep. Search after the 2nd Islanders series First Round loss.

And listen last night after the loss.

The problem isn’t the group. The problem is refusing to change and living in the past.

Tick tock Tick tock.

Just remember what happened the last time a NYR Goalie pulled some “baby stuff” on the Pens. 😉

Slip Sliding away to the bottom 8. Washington may over take them the way the Pens been losing. Not an easy schedule. Let’s see what transpires with the Washington game. Can’t wait to see what they do in the off-season after playoff loss. Hope it’s not disappointing but probably will be resigning Malkin for one! Step up Burke!
