Pittsburgh can look to its own history as an example. The last team to go down 0-2 in a conference final and come back to win its series was its 1991 team - against the Boston Bruins.

Pens D has been shaky and hasn't helped what is above avg goaltending. I think the Bs win in 6.

I don't feel the defense or goaltending is the problem at all.

I always knew the Bruins would score 2-4 goals per game. The Pens normally aren't a team that holds other teams to 0 or 1 goal.

Normally, the highest scoring offense of the last two seasons and the offense that was on pace to score the most goals in the Playoffs - simple scores more than their opposition!

No....the problem is only 2 goals in 3 games and Crosby/Malkin/Neal/Iginla being pointless.

The Penguins played better than the Bruins in game 3 and still lost. I think both teams will be bringing their A game tonight. However, if Boston manages to go up a goal or two early in the game it may be too much for the Penguins to deal with mentally and they may fold. Their best shot at winning tonight is to set the tone themselves early in the gme by getting on the board before Boston.

I'm not sure they'd mentally fold, but I agree that getting up on Boston is important since, just like when Claude Julien coached the Devils, they are happy to stifle the life out of you with a one goal lead.

Boston blew a 3-0 series lead on the Flyers three years ago and almost blew it in the 1st round this year. One game at a time!

You got beat. Sad that you didn't win one. Maybe the Kid is more hurt than stated...but no one else stepped up to score.
