Post-Game 2 quotes

Some interesting stuff coming out after the game.

Pittsburgh coach Michel Therrien on Chris Osgood drawing two penalties: "He's a good actor. He goes to players and he's diving. Took away our power play. Got to get focused. I know our players are frustrated right now. It's tough to play the game. But Osgood did the same thing against Dallas under Ribeiro.
"Our team never goes to (the) goalie. We never did it. And we don't target the goalie. But this is ... want to talk about experience ... he goes to players and he knows what to do, I guess."

Johan Franzen on being hit in the head: "I got to expect that almost. I've got to be ready. I've got to put my hands up and protect myself."
Franzen on the scrums: "We like to play hockey. We have more fun when we do that and just moving the puck. We try to stay away as much as we can from scrums. What happens, happens."

Sidney Crosby on Osgood being hit by Sykora: "And I don't think he's a guy who purposely stays out of the way from that kind of stuff. We have seen them against Dallas. He's not afraid to get in there and stir things up. I thought on that play, and maybe a couple, he didn't necessarily try his best to avoid the situation. So that's playoff hockey, though.
"You gotta expect those kind of things. And sometimes the calls are going to go your way. Sometimes they're not."

Bad sign for the Pens when your coach and captain are focused on Osgood's "acting" and the Red Wings' "obstruction".

If the Pens want to win their home games, Therrien and Crosby need to mature in a hurry and let that go.

But as a Wings fan, I'm hoping they continue to harp on this the next two days instead of focusing on finding some offense, improving the first pass from their D, and getting to the net.

Hey Bruce, noticed you got to pick the three stars of the game. I thought Stuart should've been 2nd star and Filppula third.
