I think we match up better in this series.  I hope we match up better in this series.

Penso. If I recall you are from the NYC area.  Was watching the MSG postgame for shits and giggles.  Not Surprisingly, each of the Isles analysts were so eager to talk about how the Pens were in for it against the Senators and how poorly we matched up against the big blue line of the Sens.  I tend to disagree with what they were spewing and agree more with you... But then again, I thought the Islanders series would be a cake walk.  I sure hope this teams comes out with a different mindset, I.e. sacks up, because this is sure to be physical.

I'm not nearly as fluent in hockey analysis as I am in football, but my impression of the Penguins is that they match up much better with a slower, physical team than a quick one that frustrates them by not allowing a clean carry into the offensive zone. I think the quickness and skill of the Penguins will be able to handle the Senators physicality much better than the Islanders quickness and the way they bottled up the stretch passes and clean breaks.

That is unless the Senators found something in the tape of the Islanders series that they can use to exploit the Penguins.

Merman1983:
Anderson is much, much better than Nabokov but I simply can't see Ottawa outscoring the Penguins.  Anderson is much more likely to steal a game though.

I realize the NHL is waiting to see if they will have the Leafs available for the next two Saturday nights, but if Boston wins apparently the Penguins/Sens will play Saturday night after playing Friday night.  So after game 1 there's 72 hours between games then they'll possibly play back to back Friday and Saturday?  The NHL is still the most poorly run professional organization in sports.


Predicitons:

Penguins in 6, Blackhawks in 7, and San Jose in 7.
