Game 3 Vs Flyers

This afternoon Game 3 was a disaster for the Penguins and everything that could go wrong did.     All of the things that made them great during the regular season imploded against the Philadelphia Flyers in a 8 to 4 loss.  The goaltending was awful Marc-Andre Fleury had the worst game in his career.  Fleury was pulled before the 3rd period replaced by Brent Johnson.  The Penguins gave up 3 power plays goals, and a short-handed one.   The was a lack of discipline, and the team had a meltdown.   Arron Asham had a match penalty in the 1st period and might get a suspension.   Kris Letang was in a fight and got a game misconduct.   Craig Adams was in a fight during the last 5 minutes of the game, and might get a suspension.   The defense gave up too many shots, and the Flyers took advantage of it.    Matt Read, Daniel Briere, and Max Talbot had two  goals each to pace the Flyers, as well as Jaromir Jagr who had 3 assists.   The Penguins had two goals each from Jordan Staal and James Neal.  Only 3 teams in Stanley Cup Playoff history have come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a series.    Can the Penguins do the impossible and win 4 straight games.   After watching the first three games anything is possible.  The task starts game 4 Wednesday night in Philadelphia.
