Re: Pens v. Redwings 6/2/08 - Who Gets Your Game Puck?
im not one who thinks a gameball (puck) always goes to the best, most important, or outstanding player of a game. i think it is a great way to show appreciation and reward an unsung hero sometimes.
if i were fleury and the team gave me the puck, i would walk over to talbot and hand it to him. if the pens can pull this off, none of this (especially fleury's OT heroics, would be possible.
after all, it is easier to block a shot, than it is to score a goal.
as for BOTH goalies in this series, they have both been amazing. ive watched plenty of roy, hasek, and brodeur in the playoffs/finals (and even fuhr back in the day) and i must say that osgood is playing as well as any goalie i can remember.
fleury has been great, and i understand osgood is the beneficiary of a superb defense, but he has stopped some awesome firepower that the pens possess.
