Nah, it's purely speculation on my part.

Malkin's a hothead, Ovi can throw him off his game. Hopefully Nicky's back... and I think we have ourselves one heck of a series. Bring on the Pens.
yea, ok....and? what about that doesnt apply to playing the bruins?

I think he's saying so what's the difference in playing Boston or Pitts ? If we have nothing to lose either way, and to some extent I agree with both posts. We get up vs pens could be a great series. But then again Boston has been weaker lately. I don't buy it though I think Boston goes deep again. I can see Thomas going crazy in net again.

My point was Was vs Pitt is a marquee matchup. Our players have always played the Pens hard, always. Pens are on a roll, we're truly the underdogs. We have a past with that franchise. Its Ovi vs Crosby again in the playoffs. Boston is just another team, the Pens are something more. Knocking out the top seed would be phenomenal. There is a big difference between playing the two teams.

We're probably more likely to get swept by the Pens than to knock them out.
