Philly ties the game 2-2 entering intermission.

Could be a 1st round matchup, maybe 1 vs 8 or 2 vs 7.

As usual they had to beat the Pens AND the refs.

Why, because of the extended 5 on 3 late in the game? I watched last night and though the Pens got the short end of the stick more often than not in terms of calls. The elbowing call on Adams, I think, was brutal.

In terms fo the 5 on 3 (total of 3 penalties called), they were all automatic calls, 2 highsticking penatlies + Talbot not only covered the puck in his end with his hand (which I think is automatic now...new rule), he picked it up, turned around and then dropped it.

I'm not sure how anyone can complain about any of those calls.

After watching that game though, it is so obvious that Philly knows how to play against the Pens, they get them off their game so easily. If they aren't goating them into retaliation penalties (they've been able to do that a lot with Malkin and Neal), they are at least getting them away from playing their game. They are totalling in their heads. Seems pretty easy to fix, but that is one of the problems with a young team.....it's hard to avoid getting rattled.
