What he was saying is that in Game 3 Pittsburgh lost in a most embarrassing fashion (almost as embarrassing as we are right now). Based on your "It's how you lose" theory, Pitt should have been garbage tonight. WRONG.
I expect us to play with our best effort on Friday. The group will not let this feeling go and the memory of tonight fade and accept it. They will be there on Friday.
Luckily, we put ourselves in a position to where we could afford to not show up because we had 3-0 lead. Now it's 3-1, and the fact the Pens will have severely rocked a boat that was in cruise mode will help us.
We finish it in 5.
That's not what I'm saying at all. My "It's how you lose..." comment was a response to someone saying that it doesn't matter if the Pens score 100 goals.
That's all. Nothing else to read into the statement.
