= Tanger now literally refusing to shoot on the PP
- If I have to nitpick, Tanger looked REALLY lazy on the first goal.
He also was cheating up ice when Martin lost the puck in the middle of his own zone and Fiddler was behind everyone for that point blank shot.
Tanger actually has had a few rough ones in terms of defensive coverage (the give and go goal in LA, for example).
That said, it's a nitpick.
Frankly, as a team, the Pens defensively did a better job on the Stars than just about any other team I've seen this year and they did it without Michalek.
Side Note: I live in Dallas, so I got the Stars feed. Love listening to a game announced by Razor. Guy was really impressed with the Pens and announced the game as someone who actually was familiar with the Pens (beyond the soundbite level of knowledge).
