no, the Pens defense is not that great.
Disagree completely, one of the best defensive teams in hockey the last month+.
The addition of Eaton and Murray have cemented the back end stability the Pens needed.
3 straight shutouts, and 11 games last month with 2 goals or less allowed.
When healthy, the combination of offensive dominance, solid goaltending from Fleury and Vokoun, and solid defense, well, 15 straight speaks for itself.
Funny that three quarters of that streak were without Letang, the quickest defenseman and a guy who pushes the puck up out of our zone fast and as well as any defensive in the league.
