I'm doing a shot of Jager in hopes of Carts and Lupul paying the Wizard a visit between now and Saturday.
Over the course of a postseason, many lines and players will step up... and many lines and players will be controlled.
We all know that that Carter line can get white hot... Right now the Pens have been able to throttle them as well as Richards' lines for the most part; the lesser lights have shined bright and the scoring has been spread out. If the Flyers play the way they have after Game One, they can come all the way back and advance... Marty has to play like he has, and like he did last postseason.
In my mind they win and lose as a team... Today the team in orange and black won... I'm getting there early Saturday and party the afternoon away.
I wasn't able to watch this game, but I'm so glad we won.
I was wondering if someone knew where to find the replay of the Malkin kick? I watched the highlights on NHL.com but it isn't very clear as Biron is blocking the area near his foot from view. I'd really like to see it's blatantness...
Oh, and as far as Richie and Carter's lack of production... I wonder how much of that is because the Pens are trying to shut then down. They clog them up, and others get open or the lines don't have the "shut down" guys on them for the 3rds and 4th....
