I honestly think a victory over the Pens in the first round means we carry pretty far in the playoffs. Not only because I believe if we beat them we can beat anybody, but I'm sure it would give the team a collective jump start that would make them feel pretty good. I am however hesitant, not only because of what you said with yet another first round effort, but because I would think at this point the Pens are probably in their heads. After getting knocked out by them two years in a row, then getting pretty much manhandled by them this season, I could see why.

Dittoes. Even if we got swept in the second round, while I would still be very disappointed, I would just love the satisfaction of having their fans see how it feels for once.
