Bobrovsky fell apart. The workload of the season caught up with him. I don't see the Pens doing this against Washington. Holtby is unlikely to out-Fleury Fleury the way Bobrovsky did.
Pens have the offense, but Fleury is a roller coaster in net. He's either lights out or a disaster, and you're never sure what Fleury is going to show up, and his athletic (read: reactionary, poor fundamentals, bad positioning, worse rebound control, ill-advised pokechecks) style makes the team chaotic in their own end.
Plus the Pens are missing Letang. I want to believe, but it's tough. I'm hoping Murray is back sooner rather than later.
