Agree, and I tried to allude to that. The match-up against NJ was a very good one, working toward the sudden lock-down D strength. Second round was, of course, the historic comeback against Boston, and I wouldn't trade that in for anything (besides the Cup). The Flyers met the Canadiens at the best possible time: they had expended their playoff legs and pixie dust on knocking out Pittsburgh and Washington, and had nothing left against the Flyers. It's a shame San Jose couldn't have made a better series out of their round with the Hawks, and worn them down a bit more.
