It could have easily worked for them. If MAF didn't **** the bed the way he did, the Pens would have been a VERY dangerous team. They were cup favorites going into the playoffs (essentially tied with Vancouver as the top 2). It's about putting your goaltender in a position to succeed and getting hot goaltending.

Even the lowly Oilers had some amazing stretches of hockey due to hot goaltending from Khabibulin and Dubnyk (at different times).
