You can Lose 3

Was game 5 a must win? Not really. Would it have been easier to steal a road game before game 7? sure. Well depending on how long you've watched Penguins Hockey you should know that the Pens often like to take the long road. That way there are no excuses. I don't want to say the Pens handed the Wings game 5 but it definitely wasn't the type of game i was expecting.

Going into game 5 it was a best of 3 series, which means you can lose one. Well now that the Pens got that out of the way, it's time to take care of the 2 wins. Make no mistake about it a 5-0 ass beating will wake you up. The embarrassment will wake you up. It's different now. There is no more "whose the Better team". It has now switched to who wants it. Any team can be beat, on any given circumstance. If I had to pick any team to beat the worst of odds, I'm picking the Pens, They have answer the call over and over again.

Unlike most people I'm not giving up just yet, and unlike most people I'm not blaming Maf for the game 5 situation. You win as a team, you lose as a team. If Fleury would have made 4 more saves we still would have lost. The Pens still have a chance to beat the Wings until the final whistle of their 4th loss. Down 3-2 in the series with a game 6 on home ice. When a win is needed good teams go out and get it. Tuesday a win is needed.

The Wings had something to prove after taking an ass beating in game 4 and now the Pens have something to prove from the ass beating that happened in game 5. The Pens will game 6, and we will go from there.

Go Pens
