Gut says Pens in 6.

Head says Marathon bombing means boston is team of destiny and boston doing to iggy what we did to hossa is bound to happen.


I'm with Pens in 6 though in a very tough and close series with every game being by 2 goals or less.

I think anybody who votes Bruins should identify themselves and provide an explanation. I only see a couple of brave souls here.

The Pens, with their depth, could do this in 4 games, especially given the fact that Rask was exposed a bit by the Rangers, a lowly offensive team. If he's off even a little, the Pens will chase him. It's a shame this series is delayed because Chara looked completely gassed in the Rangers series. The Pens will hit him early and often. Vokoun will be a kay obviously in these close games.

Bottom line, dumb turnovers by the likes of Letang and Malkin are a concern, and the Bruins are tough to beat in Boston, so I'm going with Pens in 6, even though it shouldn't take that long I think it will.

I think our ideas of "exposed" differ pretty greatly. Its pretty surprising how many people think the Bruins will be an easy team to beat. Especially considering they just walked through a series in which they were missing half of their starting defenders.

This Bruins team would have beaten the 2012 Penguin team, hands down. But this is a different team. Everyone said the Ottawa series would be close, low scoring games, and that Pittsburgh would not be able to score on Anderson the way they did against Nabokov.

The likes of Wade Redden and the other no-name rookies the Bruins had on defense may be able to compete against the Rangers offense, which consists of Rick Nash and a bunch of 3rd and 4th liners, but it will be a different story against a Pens team who can not only score all the way through the lineup, but play physical as well. I think it will be a close series with close scores, but the Pens can win it in 6.

Some people may see certain confessions as brave, others may see them as disturbing.

If the Pens play like they can and should the Bruins are irrelevant. If we see little to no mistakes and confidence in playing Bylsma's system no team will beat the Pens in a 7 game series.

They beat a team who can't score, and it took them 5 games. Whoop-ti-do.

Went with Bruins in 5. I feel like they're going to feast on Vokoun's rebounds.

The Pens in 5 predictions are the most funny to me. I can understand in 6 though.
