    I went kind of “old-school” here going back to the days of domination from the Edmonton Oilers. Obviously the Pens will be tough but it’s been more than three decades since a team won the Stanley Cup three straight times. Even those powerful Oilers teams didn’t do that (they got 4 in 5 years in their heyday.) But they’re going to be back this year.
