- the most amount of saves Osgood has had to make is 21 in the playoffs. Nashville, Colorado and Dallas offences are meh.
Detroit will have a rude awaking when the Penguins play them. There D will be exposed. If that Swede wants to park in front of Fluery, I hope Hal Gill becomes Hal Kill.
I had not considered all of that, quite honestly. And after watching them tonight, it left me just as unimpressed as you. The Stars have ZERO offense outside of their top line, and yet they still managed to stave off elimination. They're still going to lose the series, likely in their next game, but I'm feeling better about the Pens' chances when they meet up in the Finals. And if Holmstrom tries to park his big ass in front of the net, I hope Fleury channels Billy Smith and hacks that big bastard down. He'd get a penalty for it, but it would send him a strong message.
