They played their butts off. The Isles were blown out in Game 1, on the road for Game 2, down quickly 3-1 and Crosby returning, yet they were going at it like it was an elimination game and got some fluke goals simply because they were working hard as hell.
I didn't like the Pens' effort from start to finish at all, but the Isles came to win that game and I give them SOME credit for accomplishing that. Pens' playing like they were already crowned SC champs hurt a lot, but the Isles showed that you had better respect them or they may in fact beat you no matter what your talent level or who is in the line up.
