Any team with a competent lineup and a smidgen of defense will bring down the Yankees in 5 games. I didn't think so before this series, but the Angels tried, with all their might, to hand this series to New York in three games, and the series still went 6.
It's going to be an easy title for Philadelphia. New York has one reliable starting pitcher, one reliable reliever, and one reliable bat. Ryan Howard sez hi.
Lucic Crew 5, Flying V 6
We were winning 5-3 with 5 minutes to go. I hadn't given up a goal since halfway through the first period. I then allowed the same guy to score three consecutive times on the same shot from the same place to lose the game.
Positives? Well, I only gave up 6, which is a new personal best. I had a clean second period. I had a nice glove save and I'm pretty sure I stuffed a breakaway, but it might've just gone wide. I successfully skated from the crease to the bench with 50 seconds left without falling on my face. I played the puck up to a forward from above the circles. I had a nice butterfly slide.
Negatives: I gave up a goal on the first shot, again. I gave up three consecutive goals on the same shot from the same place to lose the game. I didn't see anywhere near as many shots as I usually do, so the 6.00 GAA is misleading. I left out a rebound but didn't get a whistle when I covered up and got run over by 4 skaters in the crease.
