A half-way decent offense, plus good D and great goaltending and the Penguins are beatable. Fleury has looked awful baring game 1. If Sens win their series and Penguins win this one, Send could take them with Anderson in net on his game.

I don't know who has been worse this series, MAF or Nabakov. They've both been brutal at times.

He is an incredibly talented goaltender. He just... struggles. His technique and consistency are suspect.

Fleury has been bad, but the Penguins are also bad defensively. Isles are dominating them in the corners and on the boards. The Penguins D can't handle the Islanders forwards when their forecheck is up and running.

They're also an undisciplined group. They collectively, as a team, try and go for the fancy plays instead of playing with composure and positioning.

we dont' have an offensive game that bombards and "rattles" goaltenders with shots from all angles.

Actually, I think he was 14-15 when he went to Shattuck's. After that, he was drafted #1 overall by Rimouski of the QMJHL. Rimouski (in Quebec) does not have an English high school, so Crosby commuted between Moncton to Rimouski (quite a ways actually) on Via Rail for high school courses and such. He was not your normal student, and did not attend classes daily.

I note the rest of the quote after the above was left out:

Should have kept reading, lol.

How the hell did he have time to go to school? I though junior players have tutors or something.

Where do Islander fans come from? You gotta get them on board when they're young or they won't go down that path.

It was probably a penalty for hitting Malkin earlier.

Lol, missed high stick. Typical. Tavares should have pulled an Ovechkin.
