Round 2, Game 2
How's that song go? Second verse, same as the first! (love that song despite it being much older than me!)
Point being, tonight's game against the Senators would preferably be a repeat performance of game one on Tuesday night.
Despite the nice win in the opening game of the series, things were far from perfect. Too many times did the Pens have to go on the penalty kill. I will say though, they played more like my team should be playing. Definitely a lot better than they did thru the whole Islanders series.
It seems the plan is going to be riding Vok0un until he makes a major screw up and loses. I'm fine with that.
The other day, Ron Cook wrote an article in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette that Marc Andre Fleury was essential for a cup win. Seriously? If we went with that theory we'd be golfing with Ovi right now rather than continuing our cup run.
As flawed as Cook's logic is, MAF will at some point make a return to the net. The question being just when will that be? For me, I'm all for Vokoun to keep playing in goal as long as he wins. He's been reliable and steady. Shame on the fans who are screaming for Fleury to play, giving little regard to the playoff leading stats Vokoun has posted.
Want a winner? have to go with a winner, and that's what Vokoun has been doing. Ride the wave my friends, ride the wave... hopefully right into the next round.
LET'S GO PENS!!!
