How can you say that so easily? The Flyers were 3-2-1 against the Devils this year. Furthermore, the last two Philadelphia wins in that disrupted home-and-home series were games the Devils could have won. It's hard to say how things might turn out in a best of seven. Scott Stevens and Brian Rafalski will make it much harder for teams to score on the Devils. Stevens has also been known to turn aournd a playoff game with a big hit. That coupled with a pair of Elias goals might be all the Devils need to get past Philadelphia in seven.
