They still played hard in the regular season, but the team that tore through the playoffs was something else. They swept the Flames and only lost 1 to the Bruins. Both were exceptional teams that year.
Calgary was excellent no noubt, but the Bruins weren't a great team.

The two Flyers teams they beat were better than the two Bruins teams. Isles were getting old, but were still very very good and had the aura a 4-time defending Champ has.
