That certainly could happen, but if you watched the entire game less the goal scoring plays and you had to guess who won, would anyone guess that the Pens won? They were dominated most of the game.

Someone mentioned it last night, about how the Penguins defenseman don't really seem to "box out" so to speak down low, and I think the result of that, for better or worst, is that opponents will be the first ones to pucks that bounce back off the boards. Not much you can do if it bounces right to their stick and the roof it.

Seems like the question in soccer whether to cover the posts for a corner or not. No respectable team covers the posts anymore, I think.

Yeah, can you believe it? They shut down the league for the Olympics!

Oh the whole league? I was wondering how many games in hand they were going to have.

I was watching and thought the exact same thing. It nearly had a preseason feel to it, IMO.
