Pens vs Flyers - What is your Round One series prediction?

Postby Penspal on Mon Apr 09, 2018 8:07 am

For every round the Pens are in (all 4 for sure), I'll put up a prediction poll to see who can read the crystal ball, the tea leaves, the whispers of the hockey gods, etc.

Have Fun!

Let's Go Pens!

I say a 4-2 win, we will be in control of the series but the Flyers will still win 2.

Pens in seven but almost nothing would shock me (same goes for most of the other first-round series, in both conferences). These teams were separated by 2 points in the standings. Two of the four regular-season games went to OT.

Pens have not hit their stride yet, and the Flyers are a decent team. Pens are going to lose a couple in this series for sure, so I'm going 4-2 Pens.

Pens rediscover team defense and limit the opportunities. They live with the puck and Philly won't be able to combat it. Pens will continue to put up 4-5 goals a game with Philly's mediocre goaltending, but will have a hiccup in game 3 since it'll be the Flyboys first playoff home game and they'll have a little extra juice. Pens in 5 and getting a little extra rest awaiting the winner of WAS-CBJ.

I'm with you. I have the Pens in 6. But with our Pens this year, anything could happen.

Pens in 6. We have the edge on offense and goaltending, but I suspect we'll have enough defensive lapses to keep it "interesting" (i.e. nerve-wracking).

Though I'm hoping for a sweep. Screw the Flyers.

My sentiments to a "T". Can't stand 'em. Their players may change, but my contempt for them does not.

I know the Flyers will win a couple but I don't want them to win more than that. Preferably less. Pens in 6.

I voted Pens in 6 although I hope it is 5 or better yet 4, I guess I just think that the Cryers will squeak a few wins out maybe in OT but I hope we mop the floor with them, I can't stand listening to it all here 55 minutes North of Philly!

I'm calling a sweep; you've got to believe! An 8-0 season against Philly would be just so delicious. Let's go Pens!

Same here. Feel confident with a win eventually but the Flyers can beat us.

Last year, game 1 we didnt come out ready to play.... we faced 16 shots on goal and MAF came up big for us. We turned it around in the 2nd and 3rd. Hopefully Sully has these guys ready to go for game 1 tonight.

This is what concerns me, their readiness. They can be a Jekyll and Hyde team. Philly has everything to gain and nothing to lose.

Going to go against the grain here.. Pens in 7.

Pens win 4, lose 2 and the Flyers win 1. This match up, I believe we're our own worst enemy. The Pens may turn into the November Pens for a pair of games, which doesn't require the Flyers to do much for the win.

But they're still going down.

If the Pens take 7 to beat the Flyers, there is no chance of a three-peat...

I feel like this is our Rangers series from 2016. As long as wr can keep Zakoff from needing to play, we should be ok.
