Seriously ... hey, Geno, thanks for putting the team on your back and carrying us through the regular season when Sid was out, and Staal missed a lot of time and our defense was such a mess ... but hey, **** you 3 goals and 5 assists in the playoffs just doesn't cut it. Yeah, your playoff performance was just ass ... and, it's not a team sport, buddy, it's all you.
You're not only mixing the kool-aid, you're drinking it too.
Anybody with a functioning brain knows Malkin was a non-factor. Did you even watch a game, hell, even highlights? Everything was showing how Couturier was in Malkin's head. Getting him off his game, playing him very well, are you truly denying Couturier's excellence?
Of course it's a team sport, but your captain showed up in crunch time. Getting scoring started twice, double shifting to get things done, etc.
Malkin had 1 primary assist, and it wasn't even off the PP, and only had one goal that even mattered. (Sorry, but scoring the only goal after you're down 3 goals in an elimination game means nothing at that point, other than "at least we scored!")
Explain to me, how Malkin was a factor at all in the series?
