Yup, and it was more than that. Pit and Philly only played once as the Pens were bad for most of the 80s and the FLyers were bad in the early 90s. But, you had Rangers-Flyer 4 times in 5 years, Isles-Rangers 3 times in a row, Isles-Caps 3 times in a row Caps Rangers played 3 times in 6 years. Rangers Devils didnt really become a rivalry until their first round match-up in 92.
