Yeah the aberration happened in Carolina, but there's a reason defense carries the day 99% of the time. History has proved that.
What was the score again in the game the Flyers eliminated the Penguins? Are there actually implications here that people miss Stevens? I think I'm going to shut down and lie down with a cold cloth on my head.
