What if there's an exception?

 >>> def test_1():
...     try:
...         print('statement1')
...         raise ValueError()
...         print('statement2')
...     except ():
...         pass
...     print('statement3')
...
 >>> def test_2():
...     print('statement1')
...     print('statement2')
...     print('statement3')
...
 >>> test_1()
statement1
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
   File "<stdin>", line 4, in test_1
ValueError
 >>> test_2()
statement1
statement2
statement3

So, no, it's not equivalent.
