'Buffalo has been so banged up on defense that it should be apparent to everyone that the Pens have needed to dump it in and make the Buffalo defensemen work. Force them to go back and chase it every rush and rattle their already bruised bodies. Instead, the Pens have stubbornly try to finesse their way through a team that is much faster and deeper. It's not working, and there isn't much time left to make it work.'
