That's the quick narrative that I have for the end of this year. OT game 1 loss versus the Rangers. Home ice for Con Finals last year and we got shutout. 3-1 versus the Flyers in game 1 in 2012. Giroux is not called off-sides, but still was behind our defense when we have a 2 goal lead and it changes the Pen's luck for the game (and I believe the series.) 2011 we won the opener versus Tampa and did good to force 7 games. MTL in 2010 mirrors the Rangers series in we lost a winnable game 1, won the next 3, then lost 3.
