Wonder how many Q I'm gonna get now about my injury. Lol #whocares #oldnews #playtowin
I think the results of the Isles series were partially due to it being a bad matchup (the Isles gave the Pens a tough time all season, even when the Pens were playing sound hockey), but mostly due to the Isles being the hungrier team for almost the entire series. I wish I knew why. Probably because the Isles have been in playoff mode for the last 3-4 weeks.
Whether conscious or subconscious, the Pens played like they could beat the Isles without their best game...and they did. But they can't beat Ottawa like that.
I'm sure they know it, so I say Pens in 6. I still believe.
