The Penguins did'nt need to reach into their bag of tricks vs. the Panthers because they schooled them all over the ice and in every facet of the game. The Panther however needed alot more power plays then they dived to get just to make the game close.
Roberts gets this one for his work during the final seconds of the 2nd period. Somehow somebody must have clipped Roberts above the eye because he was cut. He and Scuds chased after the puck in the corner and Roberts roughed up Scuds pretty good. Scuds barely touched him with the blade after that and then Roberts took the dive. It was well timed but the theatrics were hilarious. He landed himself on his head too LMAO. Whatever happened during that comedy of errors isnt entirely clear, but if he doesnt dive he doesnt get anything for his cut. When your trailing by 3 going into the second, you have to think of your team and getting that power play, provoking Scuds and then diving was classic Roberts.
I was surprised the Pens only got a two minute penalty there. He looked like a wrestler with the amount of blood falling from his brow. I though he pulled out a razor while he was behind the net.
