I wonder how many shots that were blocked during that series with the Caps. I bet the number is astronomical.
They're firing right now on defense, PK and goaltending.
If they bring all that again against the Pens, then we are in for one hairy and ugly fight.
True, but the Habs put all that work and effort into one series where a team puts that much in an entire Stanley Cup run. They will not have the energy and physical effort to repeat what they did against the Caps, and after a loss or two will feel the pain from the series. Halak can be great, but I just don't see their effort continuing.
Pens in 5. LET'S GO PENS!
