Official GDT: ROUND 2, GAME 6 - 5/7/18 Pens vs Caps

Postby DelPen on Mon May 07, 2018 5:25 pm

First must win game of the year, Penguins haven't lost one under Sullivan. Need the following very simple things to happen to get this to a game 7:

1) Brassard needs to play like a guy we sent a lot out the door for instead of Alexei Ponikarovsky
2) Murray needs to play better than Holtby, and this isn't hard because Holtby has been more lucky than good
3) Rust needs to play his normal elimination game

4) Need to score the first goal.
5) Need not give up a goal in the first minute of any period.
6) Need to avoid lazy, stoopid penalties.

1. Murray
2. Letang
3. Rust

Get good games out of all three and there will be a game 7. If not? Season is over.

Calling it. The Pens will have a multi goal lead for the first time this series (not counting the empty net goal in game 4).

Was hoping Sprong would be in for Simon. I don't get Simon in and especially don't get him on the top line but whatever. Go Pens.

Holtby lifetime playoffs: 2.02 GAA, .931 save%
Holtby playoffs this year: 2.16 GAA, .924 save%

I guess he's just always lucky. Or he could be a good goaltender. As the numbers clearly show, the Caps failures in the playoffs have little to do with him.

It all starts with Murray. The "soft" goals that he lets in are back breaking, momentum shifting, killers that have cost us 3rd period leads. He needs to be above average which he hasn't. If we had Fleury, we would have won this series already. Murray needs to step up.

then Malkin, Kessel, and Brassard need to step up as I expect the most from those (in that particular order.....even though Brass has been a bust).

If we had Fleury playing like he has all this year and this year in the playoffs yes. But when it came to playoffs with the Pens... you never know what Fleury you would get.

There's no way of knowing we would win if we had Fleury. There's no need of even bringing it up.

We have Murray. He's our goalie. He can be great, but has not been in these playoffs. Lets hope the thought of being knocked out of the playoffs will wake up the Murray we have seen win 2 Stanley cups.

How about no breakaways, odd man rushes, or goals in the beginning/ending of each period....that would be a great start.

Line shuffles for WAS - trickle down from Backstrom's absence.

Good idea, though I'd like that rope to be about 15 feet.
