The Pittsburgh Penguins put on a show of force in Game 5 with a message sending 6-0 victory. The Penguins were led by Sid the Kid, Ryan Malone (he’d sure look good in a Ranger uniform) and Marion Hossa. The Pens just looked like they were in high gear, where as the Flyers looked like they were skating with 2 left feet. Whatever hope Philly had coming off of Game 5 was quickly and decisively extinguished early and throughout the game. The Penguins smothered most of the offensive attempts by Philly with everything it takes to be a Stanley Cup champion: hitting, goaltending, good defensive play, and a terrifying offense to defend against.
I know how good the Pens are and so does the hockey world, however they have had some help by officiating (just ask the fans of teams they laid to waste). If you are a true fan, you know it too. That’s the part that is tough to swallow, they don’t need that kind of help. They are that good and the record speaks for itself! So, now we will wait and see who the next victim is - Detroit or Dallas. Whomever it is, they better be ready!
