So far so good. Fleury still scares me with his flopping style of goaltending though.

Good series against the Sens. I think the way the series unfolded helped to mold the the team for the rest of the Stanley Cup run.

Great effort by all of the Penguins. Let's Go Pens!

If by 'good series' you mean: way not to blow it in game 6, then yes, great series.

Pens look bored and Fleury shaky.

I'm still confident they'll at least get to the Conference finals and have a good chance to go back to the Cup finals, but they have to start enforcing their style of play. Depending on how one looks at it: right now they're either in cruise control or in post-championship slumber.

I think Fleury has been allowing more soft goals than usual and I think the reasons are:

1.) Many times he doesn't control the rebounds.
2.) Many times his first save puts him out of position. He is down and out flopping on his back or stomach with the play is still going on around the net. If our defense isn't there to clear the puck or block other chances, it's an easy goal because Fleury is on the ice. The only thing left for Fleury to do is to try to reach up and make a glove stop. He has made some great stops with the glove while doing that but they have to be spectacular. Sorry, but his "acrobatic" style of goaltending has become bothersome for me.

Pens beat the toughest team they will have to face in the east.

While some of the goals have been soft...Fleury hasnt had a real strong defense out there in front of him either...

There were times in Game 6 he should have yelled 'rape'...There were red jerseys all over him...

Yeah, defensively, I would agree.

However, the Caps could turn into a series of 8-7 OT games.
