Lot's of people fawn about Letang on these boards. If he made those two plays at the end and was on our team, people on here would be trading him in posts in seconds.
There would be a full meltdown calling for Letang's head if he played here and did that. God Pitt's these teams haven't changed a bit from last year's playoffs. Holy crap though that was a bad goal by Vokoun. Just not buying Pitt being equal or even above Boston in the east this year.
Vokoun is the biggest jekyll hyde in the league right now. He sucked with Washington last year, and I watched him play quite often. The stats looked pretty good, but his play did not. He gave up a lot of crap like the one we just saw him give up. I thought Lou would go after him too before Washington traded his rights to Pittsburgh.
Same this year. Great some nights, then comes in and pitches a stinker like tonight.
It's hilarious to read the Pens and Flyers boards right now. The Flyers fans are ignoring all the horrible play from the game and celebrating winning that cluster****, and the Pens fans are frustrated with their soft team that's looking like a powerhouse regular season team that will bow out in the first round.
This was just another game of bad defense by both teams. It's like no defense is played between these two. And bad goaltending, but I thought Bryz was fantastic and none of the goals were on him. Vokoun kept leaving the net, and couldn't get back in it. Then that last goal ooofff.
Vokoun would have played tonight anyways - after MAF let in 5 he would have been in by the 2nd period.
"Devils just trap trap trap trap. Sure it's a modified trap different than LeMaire's but even with two forecheckers they have the defense sitting back with the third guy clogging up the middle of the ice." - explanation of how the Devils still employ the trap
