it could be a very boring game (see Seds, nothing to miss). Between the Penguins having already moved their pacifiers into their golf bags, the huge spotlight on their antics, their petulant response to even the slightest of league discipline, they will just go through the motions.
Which may not help the Flyers. It would be nice for them to have to play one game of solid defense-first hockey before the next round. Maybe they could treat this like a scrimmage and just play that anyway, it could result in a 1-0 win.
Not that I want it to happen, but could you imagine the response if the Flyers had to take the series in Pittsburgh? The Pens fans would destroy their team!
