Found March 08, 2013 on Sportress of Blogitude:
It is hardly surprising that the rivalry that exists between the Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins, given the geographical proximity and hailing from the same state (Pennsylvania, for you half-wits out there), is an often heated one, chock-full of animosity and intensity with a healthy dose of vitriolic back-and-forth. The bitter antagonism between the respective fanbases of the two proud NHL franchises was on full display on Thursday night when the Penguins visited Philly’s Wells Fargo Center for a showdown with the hometown Flyers. A fan seated behind the Flyers bench let his feelings towards Philly’s presumed “Public Enemy No. 1 on Skates,” Sidney Crosby, via a crass but clever t-shirt, which as you can see below, read, “Sidney Crosby is a whiny little *****.” A sentiment I am sure is shared by nearly every Flyers fan. How rude! Nah, not really. But to give credit where credit is due, at least the Flyers fans haven’t ever cheered a Sidney Crosby injury, something Isla...

There’s even a former Bruin among those to once hold the title of Flyers captain. Can you name the former Bruins forward who also served as Flyers captain from 1984-89? Answer The...

Black-and-Gold Update: Penguins Show Tons of Heart in Victory Over Philly

They say confession is good for the soul. If so, I must confess here and now that this isn’t my favorite Penguins team. I think they’re too small. They lack defensive structure, especially in their own end. And coach Dan Bylsma seems rigidly resistant to making meaningful adjustments. Still, I couldn’t more proud of our boys for the way they stormed back on March 7 to snatch...

Flyers surrender three-goal lead, fall to Penguins

The frustration was apparent after the final horn as the Flyers blew a 4-1 lead against the Penguins, falling 5-4. On Feb. 15, the Flyers led the New Jersey Devils, 3-1, after one period of play before squandering it away. That may have been the worse loss of the season until tonight when the Flyers found a way to top it. They controlled the play in the first 20 minutes against...

Keys To The Game Vs. Philly

For the first time this season the Bruins are going up against the Philadelphia Flyers. The Bruins and Flyers have had bad blood in the playoffs more than the regular season. In 2010 the Flyers came back from a 0-3 series defecit to beat the Bruins. The next year during the 2011 cup run the Bruins swept the Flyers in 4. So far this season the Flyers are 11-13-1 and tied for...

Matthew Barry: Kings Beaten By an Old Man

The Flyers past mistakes continue to benefit other teams. First, they got rid of Carter and Richards and they won a cup in L.A. Then, they didn't want to pay Jagr enough $$$$, even though he loved playing in the city of brotherly love, and father time continues to help the surprising Dallas team remain in the playoff hunt. 2 timely goals and some great goaltending by...
