Can't believe Fleury and Vokoun are so stupid as to start playing their best now. What idiots.
Seriously, that game today was pretty solid, but Vokoun bailed them out of several brain cramps as well and faced 32 shots. That is what I was talking about with the symbiotic relationship there. The D keeps rolling with another 1 goal allowed, but in reality we were outplayed - especially after Letang went out. He made saves on Seguin and Horton that there was NO way he made in his slump.
If you ask me we sat back TOO much in the 3rd, and Vokoun stood tall. That is every period since Fleury was pulled in Philly, and Fleury rebounded like a champ from that as well.
If you think that this team was missing Letang and Malkin for the better part of this game, Malkin obviously for the whole thing, we handled the "best" team in the East pretty well.
The themes through the last 4+ games has been based on better PK, better defense, better goaltending and supporting scoring. You can't play this well without all 4 being positive.
