Absolutely shit the bed on PP tonight… how do you give up more shots than you take on 5 on 3? As a playoff team… I mean wtf?

Not going to pile on a 3rd string goalie… sucks but is what it is

Anyone who has played goalie at any level has had something like what happened to Louie happen to you. That puck never behaves. Marty Brodeur once said "You know why they call it a 'puck'? Because dirty rotten bastard was taken".

Looked like it might have glanced off the stick in front and that was enough to change the angle it hit his blocker and sent it upward. I just hate it for him because mouth breathers who have never played the game are gonna pile on the poor guy who has been fucking incredible considering the circumstances.

Agreed. Fluky shit can & will happen to goalies. It’s just unfortunate the timing of it. But even more unfortunate the “fans” blaming him for the loss. Pens fans are an angry breed.

Motte had a very impressive final 2 mins of the game in his first game back from injury. 2 shifts playing 1:41 of the final 2:05 of the game.
