The second grouping has three 'rookies' on the same line. On the road, when the opposition has last change, that line would completely outmatched more often than not.

Not saying we could have beat the wings but they looked tired, were without their MVP for the first 4 games.

Yea we lost in the first round, but it kind of changes when you lose to the stanley cup champ...
The Flyers were a regular season Game 82 loss away from a first round exit last season, as well. This year, the Flyers dropped the ball in Game 82 and had to open the playoffs on the road.

Nothing changes when you lose to the Cup champs. Success is measured by the number of Cup banners hanging from your rafters, not franchise winning percentage or trips to the Conference/Stanley Cup Finals.
