It isn't like the Pens were playing lights out during that time frame. Several games they would show up for 20 minutes, get a few bounces and walk away with a win. They had a lucky streak but I'd hardly call it peaking. I thought they looked much better in the 10 games or so leading into the playoffs, at least in the sense of playing a more complete game.
