B’s team effort trumps superstar Pens

Posted by Scott Holstad on June 8, 2013

Stanley Cup playoffs 2013 — Boston Bruins’ team effort sweeps away superstar Pittsburgh Penguins – ESPN Boston.

I knew it was coming, but I’m still so very disappointed. I kind of hope Boston goes on to win it all. It’s less hard to lose when you lose to the champion. And their team showed their overall dominance against the Pens, while their goaltender was out of this world. They deserve it. The “superstar” Pens cracked under pressure. It’s a real pity. For the life of me, I can’t figure out why our scorers kept clanking shots off the posts rather than guiding them into the nets. Maddening. And our goalie was good too. Just not good enough. He only gave up three goals in the last two games, but they were enough to beat us. We need a world class goalie to get back to the Cup. I think Pittsburgh should do everything possible, including trading Malkin if needed, to get such a goalie. It’s a shame to waste such talent, especially such offensive talent. We need a goalie who can match Rask and then we need to teach our forwards and centers to go to the damn middle and in with their shots! Boston kept clogging the middle and we couldn’t score. I heard Boston’s goalie had the best series a goalie has had since Hoover was president, allowing in only two goals over the series. That’s also maddening. We average four and a half goals a game! What went wrong? Why did Crosby, Malkin, Neal, etc., disappear offensively? What was with the poor passing, the bad defensive alignments? I suspect Pittsburgh’s coach is probably going to be sent packing after this. I don’t know how I feel about that. The team has done pretty well under him, including winning the 2009 Stanley Cup, but he hasn’t gotten them back since, and with superior talent. Would a better coach have gotten more out of them? Who knows? All I know is we need a world class goalie. Please go out and get one Pens!
