Look last year at the series against the Devils, or even the Bruins. I knew pretty well that the Flyers would handle the Devils because of how they played against them during the regular season, and Kovalchuk was not going to be a difference maker. The Bruins I kind of knew the same thing, even when down 3-0 I told my coworkers who are all Bruins fans to watch out, Gagne was back and this series would turn on the next game....boom, done.
I agree with you, but it doesn't really matter in context of the original discussion. The Pens have done much better then us in the regular season, they've done a hell of a lot better in the post-season, and their record against us for the last three seasons is really good (for them).
No matter how you slice it, in recent years, the Pens have owned us.
