Manchester United, meanwhile, look like the Pens did a few seasons ago (I'm thinking 2010, but not sure): they never seem to get a real sense of urgency until the other team hits first. There's only so many times you can come back, though.
--- Edit: I seriously need to type more about these games. Every time I write a message, it seems like United scores.
This comparison to the 2010 or even spring 2012 Pens looks pretty spot on in this Reading game. It reminds of those couple games last spring against the Isles when the Pens had a chance to move past the Rangers, but just were too lax defensively and allowed the Isles to keep banging in goals. United looks about the same right now, thinking, "Sure, we could mark on set pieces, but screw it. We'll bring on Chicharito in the 2nd half; he'll score a goal, draw a PK, and we'll win in the end."
