PITTSBURGH (93.7 THE FAN)–The Penguins are moving on to the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs after defeating the New York Islanders in six games. To recap the series, and look ahead to the semifinals against the Ottawa Senators, the Fan Morning Show talked to ROOT Sports’ color analyst Bob Errey.
Bob says that the team won game six by getting production from five guys who did not start the series with the team. Namely, Thomas Vokoun was the reason that the team won.
Errey said last week that he would have stuck with Marc Andre Fleury through his struggles.
“At this point, I would probably start Tomas Vokoun,” Errey said based on how Vokoun played in Game 5 and 6.
Evgeni Malkin has 11 points in the series, but many say he has struggled. Bob tells us his thoughts on the play of the Pens’ star, and how sometimes he can look like the best player in the world, but sometimes he looks average.
Matt Cooke is hated in Ottawa because of his incidental play that resulted in the Achilles injury to Erik Karlsson. In order for Ottawa to have success, they have to move on and not let Cooke get under their skin.
