I may be wrong, but I believe one of the reasons the Rangers had success against the Flyers was that they bum rushed Giroux, and that really dampened the effectiveness of the PP.
If you lose every faceoff, it's hard to kill a penalty. Almost none of FLA's pp goals came off a rush. It was all after winning a faceoff and getting a rebound or point shot.
