Who we'll hate, who to be scared of, and more.
Read more for the breakdown...
1. WHERE NEW YORK SITS IN THE EAST.
p.s. the 1 vs 8 seed. yikes
2. WHAT PREVIOUS OPPONENT FANBLOGS SAID:
Via Broadstreet Hockey on the Rangers 2-0 over the Flyers:
Most of the credit really has to go to the Rangers. They were in the faces of the Flyers all afternoon long, and they didn't give up any space or give the Flyers any room to work. They blocked 21 shots, and the number of strong scoring opportunities by the Flyers were really, really limited.
3. PLAYER THAT WILL PISS YOU OFF.
So, so many to choose from.
Sean Avery will be on the loose, but that is almost understood. The one player we hate is Brandon Dubinsky.
If you remember Dubinsky started trolling Crosby last year.
He called Crosby a dirty player. He also said this:
“I don’t want to turn this into more than it is". “I’m not going to sit here and talk about Sidney Crosby because I don’t really care what he’s doing and I don’t really care what he does on the ice.”
4. PLAYER THAT WILL SCORE
It feels like Anisimov always gets some lucky goal against the Pens. Especially in MSG.
His career stats against the Pens indicate he has all the makings of a Penguins killer.
His 9 points against the Pens are tied for the most against any team with the Leafs
