The Pens definitely took their foot off the gas a bit but they didn't outright stop playing. On that extended PP, they were pouring it on and on and on, kept hitting posts, then Souray walks out of the box into a breakaway for a goal. That's just excessive bad luck than anything. They didn't deserve to have this one slip away. The Washington game, they did. Not this time.
I agree. The Washington and Rangers games come to mind when I think of the Pens shutting it down too early. Crosby was a mad man trying to score in the 3rd and had some really good chances (as did some other Pens) but they could not finish. I'm not too worried about this one at all.
