I find games when goals matter so much more to be more exciting because every buzz near the net could be the game winner.
Dont get me wrong, I loved the Pens/Flyers game, but this is just as (if not more) exciting IMO.
It has become an exciting game for sure, but I wasn't really interested for the first 30-40 minutes when it was 0-0. You don't know ahead of time that each time is only going to score 1 goal for that sense of anticipation to be valid. I do agree with you on principle, but I expected this game to have a lot more scoring after what happened Thursday.

I just really like this sort of chess game, it isn't like watching the Wild play the Devils (no offence to either team intended) back before the lockout when it was a 0-0 tie with no chances at all
I love a low scoring game with high levels of tactics and high levels of intensity exactly because goals are hard to come by....everything for the fans and the players is multiplied because if you go down there is not necessarily a chance to come back...
when it gets to 5-6 I just get a bit disinterested, feel like there were a lot of sloppy breakdowns in the penguins-flyers and a few weak goals....if it happens once or twice a season it can be exciting because it is different, but I would never want it to be the norm
I can definitely relate. Perhaps after watching the Rangers all season I am uniquely starved from games where there's a lot of back and forth and lots of breakdowns and goals given up by BOTH teams. The Rangers don't ever blow out their opponents and don't usually get blown out themselves. Our games are very disciplined like these ones between Caps and Bruins.
I will say though, when it's the playoffs and one mistake in a game like this can cost you your chance at the cup, it does make it more thrilling then a slugfest between two rivals.
