Not true at all.

A slight improvement, but since February 1.3 GAA. The Pens for the first half of this year sucked defensively as badly this year as they did last year. To the point where we all were calling for Bylsma and Shero's heads, Bylsma's in particular.

Since the Pens changed whatever you come up with that they changed they way they play they have been a team who actually looks like it is built for playoff hockey. Adding all the grit that they did at the deadline made it even more so.

But this team since February has ZERO resemblance to last year's team, or even this year's team for the first half of the year. You do not need to look at stats, the eye test will tell you that.
