Other then that I agree with you. I really thought they were playing not to lose. They did do a pretty decent job defensively for the most part considering Gervais and Foster were in the lineup. Bryz played great tonight. he did his job. If it was'n't for Tanner Glass they likely get shutout.
The problem with the penalties is how many the Pens get away with. Orpik nailed Giroux at the blue line and he'd never even had the puck. Blatant interference, then he crosschecked Voracek. If our guys did that to Crosby, it would be called. That's the bullcrap double standard I hate about the NHL.
