Impressive Penguins

From Gene Collier at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,

The Penguins are simply too much.  Too fast. Too precise. Too disciplined. And too reliably backstopped by the consistently brilliant Marc-Andre Fleury. All of it too much of a mountain for anyone on this side of the Conferencial Divide.

Even within the mandatory confidence of professional athletes, did anyone in the room think this team was capable of winning 11 of the first 12 postseason games?

“You never think that way,” Ruutu said. “It doesn’t matter how you keep going, just so you keep going.”

You might change your thinking now that the Penguins walked into this building where they hadn’t won all year, where they were supposed to get jumped by a desperate hockey club stung by misfortune, and turned the Flyers into the jumpees.
