The Penguins were two time Stanley Cup champions. They finished the year 17-0-1. They rolled through the Devils in 5. The Isles mind you had some talent of their own however no Pierre Turgeon thanks to a Dale Hunter mugging, but we had something more. Here is what Glenn Healy had to say about the series:
“The Penguins were better than us for 82 games,” Healy said. “We just had to be better than them for 12 days. And anybody can be better than anybody else for 12 days.”
Repeats are twice as nice!!!!
