Did you see the shot differential?

We were in their zone basically for the whole 3rd period. GREAT goaltending.

Exactly. There should definitely be credit given, and it goes to Caron - amazing saves and a whole lotta luck.

Pens were lulling them into a false sense of security...hehe

last 4 games
Leafs Vs Pens shots 46 to 17 final score Pens 3 Leafs 2

Stars Vs Pens shots 45 to 19 final score Pens 4 Stars 0

Rags Vs Pens shots 31 to 42 final score Pens 7 Rags 4

Ducks Vs Pens shots 28 to 27 final score Pens 2 Ducks 1

shot diferential doesnt matter... to bad its the score that does

Because everyone knows saves are made entirely on the merits of luck.

Who cares if the saves were flukey or not? We still won.

Seems to me that the Pens underestimated the Leafs.

Give credit for what? The Pens were still awful. It was all on the Goaltenders.

So, then credit to the goaltenders. Simple solution.

Are the goaltenders not Penguins too? Three penguins also scored.. give them credit for taking advantage of their limited chances, unlike Toronto who had shot upon shot but only finished twice...

...and that is why it was all on the Goaltenders. Kidd was horrible and Caron wasn't. I give Caron credit, but the Pens skaters were still brutal.

I wouldn't say Kidd was brutal. The first goal was great by Jackman while spinning, and I'm sure that's hard for a goalie to figure out where the puck is going to go. The second one he really didn't have much chance on.

The goalies got lucky.

Very lucky.

But they managed to win... so good game by Aubin and Caron.

He let the worst team in the league score 2 goals on him with 3 shots. Brutal.

4 on 19 is not 2 on 3. Turco had a bad game, Kidd plays like this all the time.

Look, the undeniable truth here is that no one can stop the Pens momentum wagon. We will continue to win and win and win out just in time to finish two seasons out of the playoffs and unable to win Ovechkin.

YOU CAN'T STOP THE MIRACLE PENS! BUCHBERGER WILL DESTROY YOU!


Seriously though, can't we just get some recognition here? We didn't win 4 in a row on accident people...

kidd is not that great of a goaltender.. we should've put tellquvist instead of him.. it was funny when the fans mocked kidd when he made an save tho .. its becoming like a trademark for toronto fans lol

I pray to God the Pens go 11-0.

It would be an awful shame to have Ovechkin play for such a pathetic organization.
