But the Penguins ... they're seen by many as rather fragile. It starts with Fleury, who was benched last spring and never got it together again. The playoff doubts are going to haunt him until he proves otherwise. Also, the Penguins do not like getting hit. Neal, Orpik, these guys ... they lower the boom and take borderline shots, but when the tables are turned they have this expression of incredulity, as if the other guys aren't allowed to play that way. The Flyers have figured this out and just rattle their cage with no mercy. They would love to play the Pens in the first round. If the Blue Jackets don't play with a sense of awe, they've got a shot.
