Would Pittsburgh have beaten boston in the playoffs in 91? An admin said I could remake this poll if I omitted the inappropriate poll options I left in the last one, so here goes. The last poll was left at 17 votes for boston winning, 7 for the pens still winning, and 5 for undecided. Now ill give my point of view. Cam Neely had 5 goals 1 assist in 2 games vs Pittsburgh in the 90/91 playoffs. Boston was up 2 games to none while he was in the lineup. In game 3, Ulf Samuelson was persuaded to take out Cam Neely, which is widely known. This turned the tide by removing Boston's biggest physical presence and top scorer, who was scoring around a goal a game. Pittsburgh came back 4 games in a row to go on to the finals. Either team would have easily beaten the Minnesota North Stars like the Pens did then, so really, this was a cup deciding injury. Its up to you, the fans, to vote a nice quote from before. also, a quote for those who say it was not intentional or dirty.
