IT IS NOW TIME FOR THE NIGHTLY SPORTS CALL WITH RICH WALSH HELLO AND GOOD EVENING EVERYONE I HAVE GENE COLLIER HERE TONIGHT THE NUMBER IS 412-575-2600 OR YOU CAN TWEET US WE HAVE A LOT TO GET INTO

THE PING ONES CALLED THE PRACTICE TODAY FOR SOME THAT IS THE WRONG MOVE AND FOR OTHERS THAT IS THE RIGHT MOVE I GUESS IT DEPENDS ON THE RESULTS AND GAME FOR THEY DID NOT GO THROUGH A PRACTICE EVEN THOUGH IT LOOKS LIKE THEY NEED PRACTICE TRYING TO SOLVE WHAT WE HAVE SEEN FROM THE EURO NEW YORK ISLANDERS IT IS TIME TO NOT BE SURPRISED WITH WHAT THE ISLANDERS DO

THEY HAVE BEEN THIS WAY ALL SEASON LONG WE KNEW IT GOING AND BUT WITHOUT THE STAR POWER WHAT OVERCOME THE TENACIOUS, FUNDAMENTAL TEAM THAT STICKS TO THEIR GUNS AND DOESN'T LEAVE ANY LOOPHOLES GENE COLLIER IS HERE WHEN I LOOK AT THIS SERIES I DON'T THINK ANYONE THOUGHT IT THE NEW ISLANDERS HAVE TOTALLY SMOTHERED THE PING ONES IN MANY GAME WAS A PRETTY BIG ONE I THOUGHT THE PING ONES WERE THE BETTER TEAM AND SHOULD'VE WON

HAD THEY WON, BUT THEY LOSE IT AND GAME THREE IS EVEN MORE OF A SHUTDOWN FOR THE FIRST GAME THE OTHER NIGHT I THOUGHT EVEN IF YOU BELIEVE THE PING ONES WERE GOING TO WIN THIS GAME OR THE SERIES OR EVEN FIVE OR WHATEVER YOUR OPINION IS, THAT STILL LEAVES TWO GAMES YOU ARE NOT GOING TO WIN IF ONE OF THE GAMES YOU DON'T WIN IS IN OVERTIME AND THE OTHER TEAM IS BUILDING, I DON'T THINK THERE'S ANYTHING NECESSARILY WRONG WITH THAT THESE LAST TWO GAMES HAVE REALLY BEEN OUT OF CHARACTER FOR THE PING ONES I WOULDN'T PUT MONEY ON THE ISLANDERS BEING THE PING ONES FOR GAMES IN A ROW UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES

I USUALLY DON'T GET FEELINGS ABOUT GAMES ONE WAY OVER ANOTHER AND WHEN I DO THEY ARE USUALLY WRONG BUT I WAS REALLY SHOCKED THE PENGUINS DIDN'T WIN THAT THEIR GAME I WAS REALLY CONFIDENT I WAS MORE SHOCKED AT THE WAY IT HAPPENED THERE WASN'T MUCH PUSHBACK WE ARE GOING TO SHOW YOU SOME SEQUENCES ON HOW GUYS WERE SMOTHERED AND THERE WAS NOBODY OPEN AT MANY TIMES

THE PENGUINS HAVE GOT TO STRIKE ON THE POWER PLAY WHEN THEY GET THOSE OPPORTUNITIES THEY HAVE A LOT TO WORK ON WHAT WOULD YOU DIFFERENTLY FOR GAME FOUR IF ANYTHING? THEY HAVE TRIED JUST ABOUT EVERY CONCEIVABLE LINE COMBINATION I THOUGHT MOVING THOSE GUYS AROUND THE WAY THEY DID PRODUCED ABSOLUTELY NOTHING THERE IS A LOT TO THINK ABOUT THEIR

THE ONE THING I WOULD TRY TO DO IS NOT TAKE ANYTHING THE SECOND GAME WAS LOST ENTIRELY BECAUSE THEY TOOK A PENALTIES AND NEVER ESTABLISHED ANY KIND OF MOMENTUM THE PING WAS CAN'T GET ANY KIND OF FOR CHECK COMING IT IS THE WAY THE ISLANDERS SET THINGS UP THEY HAVE A STRICT STRUCTURE ON THE WAY THEY DO THINGS ON THERE AND

THEY HAVE A LAYER OF A DEFENSIVE SYSTEM THAT HAS PROVEN TOO MUCH FOR THE PENGUINS AT THIS POINT HAVING SAID THAT, THEY WILL PROBABLY WIN FOUR IN A ROW ONLY FOUR TEAMS HAVE DONE IT THE ISLANDERS DID IT TO THEM BACK IN 1975 I WAS 15 YEARS OLD

EDDIE WESTFALL GAME-WINNER THE CAROLINA HURRICANES RETURN HOME WITH A SIMILAR SITUATION WITH THE PING ONES BUT THEY RESPONDED THE OUTSHOT THE WASHINGTON CAPITALS 45 Ã14 19-YEAR-OLD ALEXANDER CHALLENGED ALEX OVERSCAN TO A FIGHT WHEN I FIRST SAW IT, I THOUGHT WHAT ARE YOU DOING? THE GUY IS 19 BUT THE GUY WANTED TO FIGHT SO HE FOUGHT AND GUESS WHAT HAPPENED? HE WAS KNOCKED OUT WITH A RIGHT THAT MIKE TYSON WOULD'VE BEEN PROUD ABOUT

HE LEFT THE GAME WITH A CONCUSSION AND DIDN'T RETURN THAT POINT FORWARD, CAROLINA OUTSHOT WASHINGTON THEY OUTSHINED A LOT TONIGHT THAT IS GOING TO TURN INTO A LONG SERIES, I THINK THAT WAS A STUPID PLAY GOING AGAINST HIM LIKE THAT

SHOULD HE HAVE NOT DONE IT? SHOULD HE HAVE SAID, YOU'RE 19 YEARS OLD, I'VE BEEN AROUND THE LAKE AND I'M A PHYSICAL PLAYER I DON'T NEED TO FIGHT YOU I THINK EMOTIONS TOOK OVER ON BOTH ENDS OF THAT I THINK:DON'T PICK ON HIM OR TOM WILSON OR YOU WILL PAY A HEAVY PRICE THE PIRATES TAKE ON THE TIGERS AND MERCER IS ON THE DL DID YOU KNOW THE NUMBER ONE STARTING E

RA IN BASEBALL SO FAR BELONGS TO TAMPA THERE 117 AND THE PIRATES ARE UP 1

98 LAST NO IS PART OF THAT AND BOTH TEAMS HERE THEY ARE COMING UP WITH PROSPECTS THAT ARE DELIVERING THEY HAVE DEFENSIVE CONCERNS BUT TO BE 8-6 RIGHT NOW WITH ALL THE PLAYERS YOU ARE MISSING THERE IS NO DICKERSON, BACKUP CATCHER THAT IS GOOD BASEBALL WE ARE GOING TO TAKE A BREAK AND WHEN WE COME BACK WE WILL TELL YOU ABOUT A SPECIAL COMEDY SHOW THAT GENE COLLIER WILL BE PART OF COMING UP IN THE NEXT WEEK AND A HALF
