I agree with this. Pens D is this bad. Credit due to the Flyers but the Pens entire team D has been putrid. Fleury letting up those huge rebounds again doesnt help either.
Yeah NY is 6-0 against them, they have a very solid defense that won't get bullied the way the pens are getting bullied. I don't think Paul Martin has won a single board battle this series. And to think Philly is missing Pronger, Mezsaros, and JVR...
I mean, it was a fear i had. We needed to pull this one out but we couldn't. It's one thing to have the charachter to come back in a series and the players and systems and coaching in place to do it. I just don't see it happening folks. Out coached, out matched, out played.
Hey atleast some of the bandwagoners that thought we were gonna blow out the Flyers can go cheer for other teams now.
Malkin looks like he reached his goal for the year - winning the Hart and Art Ross. Crosby is trying, but hes got a mountain to climb. Fleury is back to playoff form. Everyone blames the defense, but Bryz is making miraculous saves while Flower is getting beat left and right. Theres no confidence back there.
