The Boston Bruins, it is said, will have revenge on their side when they play an NHL Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Flyers.

It's another way of saying that they lost to the Flyers last year, and in embarrassing fashion, wasting a 3-0 series lead.

Don't buy --- don't ever buy --- that the team with revenge is somehow more capable of winning the rematch. If it was, it would have won the first time.

The Flyers escaped Buffalo, and it wasn't easy. Since they haven't won a Stanley Cup since 1975, apparently winning one is never again going to come to them stress-free.

But they will win this series, in seven. They'll concern themselves with the dreaded double-revenge possibility next year.
