Yes it sucked, and as a 10 year old I cried that night, but this matchup is about now and now then.
Not for the team, but for the fan base... Yeah, it does.

Yes = Game 3 or 4 and/or things aren't going well
No = Penguins are manhandling the Isles and let him rest.
honestly unless the pens lost game 1 and or game 2 i would let crosby sit until round 2. We have more than enough talent to win this series without Sid so please dont come back unless you are 100%

This team hasn't played a meaningful game in awhile and while the switch did appear to be on the 2nd half of last game, Bylsma was still tooling with lineups and honestly Peters just looked like absolute garbage. Nabokov gives us fits until we finally get one past him so I see it entirely possible Isles take a close game 1.
