I remember the 1979 Playoffs. The first round the Isles had a bye. Round 2 they had Chicago who was not very good at the time. In fact Chicago could not get their rink for game 3 because it was being used for a Led Zep concert concert so Chicago's home rink was the NVMC . Isles sweep the Blackhawks in 4. Play Rangers next and lose in 6.

The excuse at the time was that the Isles had a cake walk and were over confident
The Rangers had 2 tough playoff series prior and had their playoff game face on.
