Pens Lose Game 5

I didn’t get to see much of this game due to technical difficulties experienced by Fox Sports Pittsburgh (Versus coverage being blacked out) but what I did see was some solid goaltending by Martin Biron of the Flyers but also not the most inspired of efforts by the Penguins.  They just couldn’t get a concerted effort started very often.  Also, the Flyers used a good strategy on their last two goals; take a shot on Fleury with the express thought of using him as a banking board for a rebound to someone trailing down the other wing.  Like Game 3 the Pens simply have to do a better job marking that guy coming late on the rush.  The Pens still carry the 3-2 series lead back to Philadelphia, but its also true the Flyers could very easily have this thing won 4-1 by now.  They led late in Game 2 before the Pens got it to OT, and they dominated Game 4 but Fleury stoned them.  This thing ain’t over yet.
