Sweep, Pens in 4. Already envisioning the stunned looks on the Bruins' faces.

I also went with Pens in 6. I was thinking in 7 but I have a feeling that if it gets to 7 games Pens won't advance.

Let's Go Pens!

Pens in four extremely close 1- or 2-goal games (the 2-goal games including ENs), simply because according to many Bruins fans, the Pens are incapable of winning playoff games like that at all, let alone vs. the Bruins.

Realistically (which is how I should have voted--sorry), I think Pens in 6. We need to jump out to a 2-0 game lead, I think, to pull it off.

1. Pens
2. Pens
3. Bruins
4. Pens
5. Bruins (loss at home sends Pens fans to the bridges)
6. Pens (at the Gahden, yesssssss)


Like luv66, I also don't like the idea of going 7 games.

The Bruins forecheck will cause the Pens many problems. Too many turnovers plus a dropoff in goaltending play will cause the Pens to lose this series. Sadly Bruins in 5. Hopefully I am as accurate as the last round when I picked the Sens in 5. :P

Pens in 7. It's going to be epic.

I think you'll see a totally different Pens team this series.

A team that is absolutely defensively focused.

I'm not talking 1-0 games, but I think Sutter and Martin have given interviews over the last couple of days that give an insight to the Pens new found emphasis on team defense.

Sure, our top lines will still produce, and defensive lapses will occur (I'm looking at you Malkin and Letang) but I think you'll see more forechecking, more overall physical play, and a defense that works to take care of their own end.

The Pens will try to wear the Bruins down, it's going to take patience, and faith.

LET'S GO PENS!!!

Sweep. We are a nightmare matchup for them. They may steal one, but I doubt it.

Pens in 5. Though it might be funnier to do it in six, then we can skate around their rink celebrating just to rub it in their faces.

They are going to goon it up early in the series... I think they will take alot of penaties in games 1 and 2 trying to rough us up and we will cash in on the PP!! Games 3 4 5 they will try and not take penalties and that wil take them off their game. One of those they will steal in OT. But overall Pens in 5.

I'm saying Pens in five. The way the Pens handled Ottawa inspires confidence. They manhandled a lesser opponent the way they should have. They put up huge offensive numbers against a team that had the second best goals against in the league during the regular season. Even after they blew game three they came back with even greater dominance. They were able to put a team down even without their backs against the wall. I think that was a big step for this team.

Regular season doesn't always mean much compared to playoffs but they also swept the season series. Boston is a pretty strong team, no doubt. But there's no reason they should beat this Pens team. As always, the Pens biggest potential enemy is themselves. Against Ottawa, they finally showed they can still get through a playoff series without bringing themselves down.

I like the Pens in six. With that said, the Bruins are no joke. They roll four legit lines. Their fourth line was huge for them in the Rags series. The B's also have a few rookie D-men that are playing well for them. Krug and Bartkowski have played well, with Dougie Hamilton being the odd man out since Seidenberg is back. This series is going to be a war and I foresee each win being hard fought for both teams.

We should bring Ulfie back to ritually knee Neely again after winning it in their building.

Liking the Pens in 6 here.

The Bruins do good work on the forecheck. That is a bane for the Lazy Pens (the NYI series). If the Diligent Pens (Ottawa series) shows up, this won't matter much.

At the end of the day, I think Vokoun plays serviceable (as he has been) and the Pens offense is too much.

The only way I see this going wrong is if the Lazy Pens show up.

My older brother thinks Pens in 5. Bruins win one game at home.

Can't say I disagree with him, especially if the Pens play up to their abilities.
