A couple things, LETS GO PENS....first off, bitter much? Attacking the octopi tradition as some sort of Detroit cop out for getting excited? Ha! No one was trying at the end of the game? So you're saying that the Pens just decided they can't compete and said F it? I guess you're also saying that Detroit doesn't even need to really try to score on Fleury, huh? Please. And last but not least, name me one game this year where Osgood "broke down and started letting goals in". You can't. Because Osgood is consistent. Had you said Dominik Hasuck instead, I may agree. I understand you're angry, as I would be, and am any time my team loses a game, but coming up with poor excuses and bagging on the Detroit fans makes you and the fans you're representing look pathetic. Shame on you for that, as any true and fair Pens fan would agree with me. Fleury played awesome, and the first half of the game lived up to the hype, but the Wings wore the Pens down, as they do with most teams. There's no shame in just admitting that maybe you underestimated the Wings just a tad. As for the question, it's kind of a dumb assumption to make after one game. Detroit may have been more prepared, Pitt a little more nervous, (as noted by Fleury's pre-game face plant). Pitt will be more prepared next game, but do you honestly think Detroit won't prepare for that as well? Anything can happen, and I'm just glad Detroit played stellar, and set the tone for the series, with coming away with a game 1 victory.
Here's to a great series! Go Wings!
