So someone tell me what makes the Pens so unbeatable? What makes them so worrisome?
Is it the win streak? Caps last year were the only team to go into the playoffs with more then 3 wins in a row...how'd they do?
The last 10 games they went 7-2-1 ohh so scary, right?
Beat the Kings, Flames, Rangers, Devils, Lightning, Islanders and Canadiens
OT loss to the Canes
and a loss to the Panthers and oh yeah Flyers.
3 game win streak? Lightning, Islanders, Habs forgive for not being impressed.
Is it MAF?
MAF: 62 games, 35-18-7, 2.67 GAA, .912 SV%, 4 SO, 1850 Shots
Marty: 55 games, 29-19-5, 2.76 GAA, .915 SV%, 2 SO, 1718 Shots
You'll have to forgive me for not getting on the blame Marty band wagon. For as up or down as the guy has been he sure hangs in with all the names people like to throw around by the numbers...
It sure as hell can;t be an issue with scoring - the Flyers are as deep as the Pens when it comes to putting pucks in the net..
Is it defense? Really would anyone trade the Flyers blueline for the Pens?!
