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.
I mean when it really comes down to it, Malkin's plays set up both of those goals (the tying goal and the GWG) so our offensive power DID win us the game, but I agree that we were outplayed in at least 3 of the 6. Game 4 wasn't too lopsided, althought the Isles played well, so that one to me was just a bad game by both teams. No outmatching there.
