The Flyers didn’t win the series, of course, and momentum means only so much. Maybe the Penguins could have planted a seed of doubt with a dominating victory. Maybe the Flyers gained confidence with yet another comeback. Maybe none of that will matter after Game 2.

Especially against the Flyers. As Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said: “They don’t stop.”
