Philadelphia Flyers’ Scott Hartnell was the toast of social media after he taunted a Pittsburgh fan during the Flyers’ 6-4 victory over the Pens on Sunday with a classic taunt and hype move made famous by the former wrestler Hulk Hogan. “To quote the Hulkster himself “Watcha gonna do when the Hulkster runs wild on YOU,”...Read the Rest...
Scott Hartnell decided to have a little fun at the expense of a Pittsburgh Penguins' fan on Sunday.
During the waning moments of the Philadelphia Flyers' 6-4 victory over their Atlantic Division rival on Sunday, Hartnell mocked the fan - who had a striking resemblance to Hulk Hogan - by doing the former pro wrestler's signature move of cupping his hand to his ear.
“This is a much different building than the Igloo,” Hartnell said. “You were almost scared coming into the Igloo, people were right on you. And how dumpy the place was, it was tough. I think it’s good we have the confidence to play here. We know in our hearts and our heads we can beat these guys.” [ PHT ]
Hard for Pens fans to defend this statement...
If you missed the Flyers vs. Penguins game yesterday, then you missed quite possibly the best fight of the season…and it wasn’t between the players. I unfortunately was stuck in my vehicle for 5 hours and had to listen to it all unfold via the radio. Flyers head coach Peter Laviolette went ape $h!t and started screaming at the Penguins coaching staff, most specifically Dan Bylsma...
The Philadelphia Flyers have continued to struggle early, as they fell behind 3-0 yesterday to the Ottawa Senators and 2-0 today to the Pittsburgh Penguins. I have not hidden my disdain for playing less than 60 minutes of hockey in the past, and I will not be changing my tune now. The Flyers seem to have a mentality of not minding digging themselves holes. They often come out flat...
Scott Hartnell must be a Wrestlemania fan. An eccentric Penguins fan started a tradition of wearing a fake Hulk Hogan mustache at home games. Only instead of referring to himself as a 'Hulkamaniac, he calls himself a 'Malkamaniac' in reference to star player Evgeni Malkin. During the Flyers-Penguins game on Sunday afternoon, Hartnell decided to have a little fun with...
This is straight out of the rock em sock em hockey collection.
In case you missed it, the playoffs are just around the corner and I think that a potential series between the Flyers and the Penguins could very exciting, but also very explosive and nasty playoff series.
The two coaches were fined for the behavior during yesterday's game...

Consol Energy Center - Pittsburgh, PA
There's a 94.1% chance that these two teams will meet up in the first round of the playoffs. The Flyers have had a lot of success against the Penguins this year, so this is a huge game. Both teams will be looking to set the tone...

Play physical defense. Face top competition. And chip in with the occasional goal or assist. Those were the duties of Wayne Simmonds during his first three NHL seasons as a member of the Los Angeles Kings.
The Philadelphia Flyers, on the other hand, see Simmonds as a far different player.
In his first...

I hate that the Flyers are 3-1 against the Pens. It’s pretty annoying. The last game between these two was [...]

The New York Rangers have a chance to do something they haven’t done since 1994 – take home the Atlantic Division crown and secure home-ice advantage throughout the first three rounds of the playoffs by clinching the Eastern Conference.
It couldn’t be a more perfect scenario. Just two years ago, it was the Flyers who clinched...
