Just saying luck plays a part is not saying it is ALL luck. That is just playing all or nothing with people's words.
Yet, you make a great point. The Penguins have NO ONE in front of the net, and that fact should be questioned by the coaching staff.
You need ..........wait for it.......... a little luck when the goal tender is playing at the level that Tukka Rask is. They need a re-direction, deflection, bad bounce, off a skate, off a arm, leg, my pet dog, Voyager 1, what ever it takes man.
But it starts with people in front of the net and getting their stick on the puck.
sure, it was a lucky goal to hit perfectly off niskanen's skate. but the bruins had a full shift of domination in our zone before that shot happened. it was luck in game 1 when krejci's shot hits martin, but crosby left him wide open for some reason. it was luck that the 3rd goal was the result of the puck popping up like it did, but letang decided to swat it with his stick instead of making an easy play with his glove.
this isn't dumping a puck from center ice that hits a divot and veers into the goal. this is a bunch of junk from us that ultimately results in a few goals. the minute that boston even comes close to our lack of discipline is when we'll start seeing some "luck"

I think many people maybe denied their own minds because you had to know this was going to be pretty even, though I felt Pens would prevail in the end. I am rooting for Boston to win the Cup if they beat us.

DontToewsMeBro wrote:The bottom two lines have been making a difference? You do know that Julien shortened his bench to 10 forwards, and was basically rolling 3 lines throughout a double OT game? The single biggest difference between the two teams is that THEIR first line (Krejci/Lucic/Horton) has been dominant, and ours has produced what, 1 point in 3 games.
