3/4 for the second round. Montreal choked and I should've seen that coming. I just thought the Flyers 4 defensemen would tire sooner and Biron wouldn't have been playing as well as he had.
Oh well, Pens are in it and that's all I care. I go to Philly quite often, and seeing every member of their bandwagon posse was disturbing to say the least. I hate them with a passion.
The Pens are too good to lose this one, and it will make it all the more sweet seeing the bandwagons reside and hate hockey again for at least 4 months. The Flyers are deep up front, but the Penguins are deeper, more skilled, and play better defensively (see Malkin's backcheck in game 5 to break up 2-1 and also see Briere's pathetic D when Flyers lost 2-0 lead late in game 4).
Pens D has played solid and the PK unit is on point - it had better be for the Flyers PP unit. Briere and Timonen on one unit by itself is enough to scare a team, let alone with the addition of Prospal, Richards, and Lupul. The Flyers big forwads also may create problems in the crease for MAF.
Goaltending - regardless of how well Biron is playing (for Biron, let's face it), Fleury has still outplayed him, and will continue to do so in this upcoming series.
Dal - What can you say? Turco is a beast, Ribeiro is always dangerous, and Morrow gets down and dirty. They find ways to win.
Det has looked downright scary as of late. I'm hoping it was the depleted Avs that made them look as such, but Kronwall, Rafalski and (of course) Lidstrom carry the puck so well and always make great first passes. Add to that Frahnzen is lighting it up, Zetterberg is FLYING (and scoring sick goals), and Pavel Datsyuk is...well, he's Pavel Datsyuk, what else needs to be said? Osgood has done little to warrant me to question him so I won't...yet!
