Well I thought that the Flames came out pretty well in this game, matching Pittsburgh’s speed with some desperate energy of their own. However the Pens aren’t going to lose a game like that to a team like Calgary, and they pretty much showed us who’s the boss in the second and half the third. Calgary did make it interesting though, I was happy to have something to cheer for in the last 10 minutes of a game.
Neither Malkin nor Crosby registered a point, which is quite a feat against that team. However Fleury played really well and the Penguins are deep enough to take out the Flames without too much effort.
