The simple answer is: the Flyers built their team to beat the Penguins, and did so successfully. They've completely dominated the match-up over the past two seasons. The onus is on Shero, Bylsma, and the Penguins to do something about it.
I still don't understand this theory. How do you build a team to beat one team? What specifically did they do to build a team to beat us but not New Jersey? Also, what is the point in beating just one team and losing to others? Isn't the goal to build a winning team, not a team that will beat one specific team? What specifically should RS do to build a team to beat the Flyers? To me, you can either compete with the good teams in the NHL, or you can't.
