Seriously.....did you guys see the goals?

A giveaway right in front of the goal line with no other defenders around, and left completely uncovered at the side of a wide open net on the PP.

Clowe's had EN goals that he had to work harder for than those.

Great to see him finally bank a couple and he was way overdue given some of the looks he had earlier this year.

But to me it just kinda encapsulated the difference between the caliber of goaltending/defense between the two conferences.....

In the West, Clowe fires at an open net and some other defender dives in front of the shot to keep it out......over in the East, the opposition blindly hands him the puck and politely gets totally out of his way.

The only way the Penguins could've been any nicer to him on those goals is if Fleury had congratulated him on his goals and then handed him a gift receipt after each one just in case he wanted to exchange it within 30 days for store credit.
