At least the Pens aren't playing Detroit, plus a thought on Jarome Iginla

By Finesse (follow me on Twitter)

We lamented the Pens' bad Game 3 loss, then quickly regained our perspective and realized things weren't that bad.  More evidence that things aren't that bad:  The Pens could be playing the Red Wings.

Good read from Dejan Kovacevic about the Pens' misuse of Jarome Iginla, especially on the power-play.  As we wrote yesterday, there's simply no point in having him stand on the goal line feeding Letang and Malkin for one-timers.  Beyond his points, Iginla had a dramatic effect on the Islanders series -- you'll recall he almost killed Evgeni Nabokov in the first period in Game 1.  And then the Pens went on to score at will against Nabokov for the next 6 games.  Coincidence?

There's an argument that was the simplest yet best play the Pens have run all postseason.

Again, please.
