Most of the team played hard, but not smart. For that I blame the Torts D first system.

Sure D should not be ignored and blocking of shots as needed is in order.

But while we could use another sniper, we have enough horses. We don't have to go shot block first crazy on D every single effin shift.

Rangers had a coupla minutes here and there and most of the last 5 minutes of the third. Pens had most of rest of the game with a very strong 2nd period. Can't win like that.

On top of that, we were very lucky.
Last year we had min, of injury, only collapsing from exhaustion at the end.
But if we continue to press our luck, there will be injury, and that will worsen the load on those trying to fill any gap.

We can win being the best OVERALL team.
That is our only play, not this torts first D, D, D, D, D, D, and more D, all the friggin time D.

Pittsburgh is our greatest threat.
They had the most goals last year, and no/ineffective Letang. He's back, looking good.

We have an edge -- not huge, but edge in G.
Our D are better.

We have to allow our Fs to step up.
