Philadelphia Flyers (47-25-9) @Pittsburgh Penguins (50-25-6)
Consol Energy Center - Pittsburgh, PA
This is the Pittsburgh Penguins' record against the Philadelphia Flyers at the Consol Energy Center:
"This is a much different building than the Igloo... 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."
-- Scott Hartnell
Maybe it will throw the Flyers off if the fans make the building seem nothing like the Consol Energy Center by actually cheering...
Season Series: 1-3-1.
Last meeting that counted: April 1st, 2012. Penguins lost 6-4
What we said in our recap:
As for the ending to this game, it was beautiful. We would be singing a different tune if the Pens had sent out guys that we...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Evgeni Malkin scored his 50th goal of the season and added an assist to lock up his second NHL scoring title and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Philadelphia Flyers 4-2 on Saturday.
Malkin finished the regular season with 109 points and became the ninth player in Penguins history to reach the 50-goal mark when his wrist shot with 12 seconds left in the second period beat Philadelphia...
The Flyers made a very smart move today by signing defenseman Nicklas Grossmann to a multi-year contract extension.
Grossmann was acquired ahead of the NHL trade deadline in February, and has done a tremendous job for the Flyers. Grossmann’s size (6’4″, 230 pounds) has given the Flyers a big presence in front of the net, something that had been sorely lacking since Chris Pronger’s...
As we all know, the Flyers are set to play the Penguins in the first round of the playoffs. Entering the postseason as the 5th overall seed in the Eastern Conference, they will not have the luxury of having home ice advantage against Pittsburgh.
The Flyers only have 1 loss all-time at the Consol Energy Center (yesterday), so we're not too concerned with their ability to play...
War has been declared.
It was expected that the Pittsburgh Penguins would retaliate the first chance they got after Rangers head coach John Tortorella lashed out against them following last night's game, calling them an "arrogant" organization and referencing Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin as "whining stars".
But the actual retaliation, which came...
Head coach John Tortorella blasted the Penguins following a game between the teams, calling them "one of the most arrogant organizations in the league."
In his post practice press conference today, Sidney Crosby said this about John Tortorella calling him a whiner..."I don't know what he's talking about. I mean, if you want you can put a camera on us all game, put a camera on (Ryan Callahan) all game. You'll see who's over there more. He should worry about his own players."...Is he effin kidding me? Absolutely...

Evgeni Malkin added his 50th goal moments later as host Pittsburgh

his 33rd birthday by scoring to extend his points streak to 17 games.

It could be that Shanny is too busy looking at himself naked in the mirror, but it appears there is no hearing scheduled for Brooks Orpik via The New York Rangers blog.
Update, 12:47 p.m.:
Zipay reports that Ryan McDonagh says that Stepan was sore this morning, but doesn't think it's anything serious.
...Dr. McD to the rescue.
Zipay also reports...
As I reported earlier tonight on CSNPhilly.com, Nicklas Grossmann's new deal with the Flyers is 4 years for $14 million.
His cap hit is $3.5 million. This is a terrific, manageable contract for the Flyers.
They get a physical defenseman who is a crease-clearer and just 27-years of age at a time when Matt Carle will likely not be re-signed and Chris Pronger's career...
Flying sticks. Pointed fingers. Postgame putdowns. And that was just the coaches.
What can the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers possibly do in Saturday's regular-season finale to top their last meeting, a 6-4 Flyers win at Consol Energy Center this week that served as a preview of what will be a contentious first-round playoff series?
The smart answer might be nothing...
I'm usually a big fan of Brooks Orpik as he is the exact type of defenseman the Rangers have been missing since Jeff Beukeboom, but after his knee-on-knee hit on Derek Stepan last night, I've lost a lot of respect for the guy...
Hey Torts, how'd you feel about the hit? (watch here)..."It's a cheap dirty hit. I wonder what would have happened if we...
Well, anyone who watched the game last night saw that in the third period, with the Penguins well on their way to a victory, Derek Stepan carried the puck through the neutral zone, and was hit by Brooks Orpik. The hit was a knee-on-knee hit, and Stepan was down on the ice for a while before skating to the bench. Video is below:
When watching the video, different angles show different...
What a season for Evgeni Malkin. Last year at this time he was starting the long road to recovery from a torn ACL. This year, he capped an incredible year with his 50th goal late in the second period against the Flyers:
The final score and pretty much everything in the game has and is ovcershadowed by the hit by Brooks Orpik on Derek Stepan. Give Pittsburgh credit for winning and clinching second place while the Rangers came out flat and in showed in their performance. That prior sentence is pretty much all that has to be said about the game, though I will touch on a few things, as there were very...
The New York Rangers (51-23-7) lost to the Pittsburgh Penguins (50-25-6) by the score of 5-2, tonight. For a box score and recap go to Yahoo! Sports....i thought the Penguins were known for their slew foots, not their cheap knee-on-knee penalties. Let's hope Stepan is ok....to the game, really hard to take anything away from it other than the...
