"We may have given them too much respect and not done what we've been successful at all year."Have I missed the "respect" that the Pens have been giving the Flyers?Then Crosby is excused by his own coach with this:"A little bit of what we saw yesterday was him trying to spark our team and trying to get back in this thing and scratch and claw to do it," Bylsma said. "(It was) more calculated than losing emotional control."Yes, the whole thing was all part of Sidney's Master Plan to Make It All Right And Good by acting like petulant bantam players who didn't all get dessert at postgame pizza.Throwing punches once the officials arrive. Grabbing Hartnell from behind. Flipping Voracek's glove. Chopping Bryz's glove. Letting your teammates settle the scrums you start. "Inspiring" other acts of hockey like Neal running a 19-year-old; Letang grabbing a guy who hadn't been in a fight in years; Asham's attempted decapitation of Schenn.All of this as part of a Grand Plan to get Marc-Andre Fleury to stop pucks better?Just what his coach was hoping for, apparently.
