Halak In the Pens Heads?

from David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail,

Are the Pittsburgh Penguins letting Jaroslav Halak get inside their heads, as the Washington Capitals did?

The Penguins say no, although there is growing evidence the Montreal Canadiens goaltender is doing just that. All concerned insist they simply have to stick to their game plan: make Halak as uncomfortable as possible in his crease and everything will work out Saturday in Game 5 of the NHL Eastern Conference semi-final series.

“A-1 is you have to make sure you don’t let the way a goalie is playing change the way you play and change what makes you successful,” Penguins defenceman Mark Eaton said. “We aren’t going to change too much. We’ll just keep – and I hate throwing clichés out there – but keep plugging along and not let frustration set in. When you do that, you’re giving in and you definitely can’t do that, especially in the playoffs.”
