Yes, the Pens were very hot at the end....and the Caps sucked, even more after trading Bondra/Nylander/Gonchar/Grier......still the Pens finished last, It doesnt matter how much ground they made up
Playing Chiodo was not one of these suspect management decisions as you suggest. Aubin and Caron were struggling, and Fleury had been banished to the minors b/c that was what was best for him. Makes perfect sense that Chiodo would get play time, the same cannot be said for Yeats.
