honest question: has letang displayed his mean streak at all this season? i remember him being pound for pound a very physical presence in the defensive zone at times in years psat, but that aspect of his game seems completely absent post-stroke.
He was on the ice for the closing seconds of game seven of the '09 Cup, he was the one who dove trying to stop Lidstrom's shot.
He was also the one that with about 1 minute left in game 7, he was going down the right boards with TWO, count'em, TWO guys open to his left, but his tunnel vision was so fast he basically tried to flip it over Lidstrom into the open net.
It is disturbing that it seems like Adams has a playoff gear and Glass doesn't. Adams is still awful but he now has someone to make him look less awful in comparison. Those two are a special kind of terrible.
I won't deny that. He's certainly done his part in the past. I guess I could be mis-remembering... but I feel like he was much more limited (as far as icetime goes -- he's always been limited as a player), back then.
He was also a good player for the Canes.
Well, that seems to be the story of Pittsburgh sports right?
We just never know when to say goodbye.
This board has been insufferable for over a year now...gawd remember when the highlight of an entire season was Morozov grabbing his jersey's logo...good times
One of my favourite Pens memories from when I was a kid. Morozov was great; though I was more of a Fata fan personally
Call me optimistic, but that 3rd period last game has me thinking that this team may have finally found their spark. They looked hungry for the first time in a long time. If that carries over today, and every game after that, we may not be out of lord Stanley's reach yet.
It's funny that the original post doesn't have the D pairings listed for us. Since none of them have decided to show up in this series, I can understand the omission!
Maatta paired with Letang?
I am feeling a Fleury meltdown moment tonight. Then again, I had the Bolts, Wings, Flyers and Kings winning last night. So don't quote me.
Letang's advanced numbers tend to look better with Maatta and Nisky seems to be the only option left to help Scuds not be horrible. I'd prefer Borts of course but hey, this combo seems like the best they can do if Scuderi is in the mix.
