Anybody else notice how much Winnipeg totally shut down the big bad pens in the 3rd period. Pens only had 1 shot with a few mins to go. When was the last time the pens did that to another team?
All the outmanned situations the D look bad in come from bad transitions and turnovers in unexpected spots.
It's easy to look at the 3 seconds before the goal and say to yourself, well Orpik/martin/letang shoulda had that guy's stick, but if you back the play up another ten, almost without exception the guy in question didn't because he was scrambling to catch up after someone else's giveaway.
This has been a recurring problem for a long time now, no matter who's been on the blueline.
