This IS the Eastern Conference Finals. It just happens to be being played in the first round, thanks to the seeding rules.
Philly is a helluva team, and it's no real embarrassment to be down to them, quite frankly. It would be an embarrassment to be down against Ottawa, Washington, or Florida; but they're playing the one team in the East that actually has a chance to beat them.
Calm down. I sure hope it's not as freaked out in the lockerroom as it is here.
I disagree. The Pens have been exposed. Maybe in an alternate universe they survive a round but even the Rangers amped it up for the playoffs.
Pens d and depth is horendous.
