Because they took it to the Red Wings, they played old school and it almost worked.
Was the game they played "old school" the pivotal game 5 where they let the wings take 50 + shots; hit multiple posts... and took less than 15 at the other end.

A few posts and the goaltending performance of the playoffs by Dan Ellis and yeah the score was very close.... but they didnt "ALMOST WIN" that game.... or that series... far from it.... The wings were always in control and the series was never in doubt.

The Pens gave the wings more trouble than Nashville.... Once the weak link (aka Hasek) was removed, the wings wouldn't lose another game to Nashville... and wouldn't lose again till game 4 of the WCF
