. That being said, 2 of the top 5 players in the world make them a threat. The only thing that can save the Penguins against the Flyers is Powerplay opportunities.
The Penguins have allowed the second fewest goals in the NHL and lead in PK by a wide percentage. A top 4 of Orpik, Letang, Martin, and Michalek is as good as anyone in the league. The offense isn't what it was a few years ago, but the defense is actually far better than it was.
