Not to be a homer myself, but I have to agree with this, kinda. Especially about game 6. The Pens were down by a goal with less than 6 mins to go in the game. Did you see the shot that went in to tie it?
The Pens were out shot, out hit, had more giveaways, had less take aways, won less face offs, and had less PP in that game. Also, were out shot in the 3rd and in OT. Game 6 is not a good example to use. I think that was the only game that in the series that the Isles out played the Pens AND the Pens offensive skill didnt get them the win.
