Too bad it won’t be Pens-Sens in Rd. 1. Was looking forward to stories in Ottawa about Matt Cooke burning down orphanages, drowning puppies.

I bet Mario still has dreams about David Volek.

I don't like the matchup because of the physical style the isles play. I think the pens will make it past the islanders but I think their style will weaken the pens for later rounds. Unlike the sens, who are more of a finess team.

Wednesday - Friday looks like the set-up. Consol has the Pittsburgh Power on Saturday.

I was 13 on a camping trip when this happened. It ruined my weekend.



The pens need to destroy this team. For Lemieux, the 92-93 team, the city, Kevin Stevens face, us older fans who still cringe when they hear the name Dave Volek.

Playing the Islanders now has nothing to do with that 93 debacle. It shouldn't even be a thought 20 years later.

Yes it sucked, and as a 10 year old I cried that night, but this matchup is about now and now then.

The Isles power play will keep them in a game or two but the series will never really be close even if they are able to string some momentum at points or pull out an emotional win.

The Islanders are the white trash of the NHL and I will enjoy their suffering.

Not for the team, but for the fan base... Yeah, it does.

Crosby back this round?

Yes = Game 3 or 4 and/or things aren't going well

No = Penguins are manhandling the Isles and let him rest.

Agreed. It's not like that was 1 year ago. They've only played 3 times in playoff series before too so there really isn't much history there.
