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
Give Nashville credit, they won those two games. Just because they didn't get 50 shots doesn't mean they didn't deserve it. The final score is what counts.
Just like the Habs. People will go on and on about how they outplayed Philly. I don't think so, Philly won in 5, how were they outplayed? They jumped on opportunities and took it to the Habs and made it count. To me that's hockey and the Flyers outplayed the Habs.
And that's this year's example of a less talented but "Canadian" team taking it to a talented "European" team and winning based on style of play.
