Just a few things that caught my eye ... The Preds' power-play was featured on America's most wanted tonight. O-for-14 in two games? So much for regular-season supremacy. Tell me again why Sean Couturier slipped to eighth in last year's draft. Then again, how did Claude Giroux fall to 22nd in 2006? Aren't the first and last minutes of the period supposed to be sacred? There had to be some kind of record snapped tonight. Wow. Steve Sullivan -- a classic illustration of the dangers of using a forward on the point on the PP. Dan Hamhuis -- classic example of the dangers of placing a pylon on the point for the same purpose. There's no way a team should score two shorties in one playoff game. No way. Claude Giroux is an exceptional talent, but an even better leader. I am more than impressed ... in fact, I think I'm gaining a whole new respect for Philly.

Flyers come up with improbable 2-0 advantage heading back home

Flyers come up with improbable 2-0 advantage heading back home I was watching the Phillies last night in a loss to the Mets and saw that the Sixers were going down against the Nets. Then I switched to the Flyers after the Phillies game. The game was tied 5-5 and whew, I knew the Penguins were good. Then it happened. Jaromire Jagr turned 180 against his old club, let his only shot...

Tim Panaccio: Couturier Doesn't Look Like a Rookie

Jaromir Jagr was looking for a word to describe the performance from rookie center Sean Couturier in Game 2 against the Penguins. "Awesome?" he asked. Not only did Coots have a hat trick, but he shut down Evgeni Malkin, who had 2 assists and was -4. "Don’t forget, he had to play against probably the best player in the league, [Evgeni] Malkin,” Jagr...

Is it too late for the Pittsburgh Penguins to make a come back?

The Philadelphia Flyers aren’t so much winning the Round 1 series of the Stanley Cup Playoffs as much as the Pittsburgh Penguins are losing it. For the second time in two games, this Penguins allowed the Flyers to come from behind for a win. Last night’s 8-5 result was anything but usual.

Flyers want to come out focused

There is no shortage of suggestions, from serious to silly, for how the Philadelphia Flyers can stop falling behind so early in games. Start the backup goalie for a period. Spot teams a 2-0 lead on the scoreboard and knock 10 minutes off the clock before the opening faceoff. Skate harder, come out more focused. No matter the ideas batted around the locker room, the song remains...

Eklund: What the Heck Just Happened Out in Pittsburgh?

This is nothing we saw coming. Not by a country mile did I see the Flyers giving up 8 goals in Pittsburgh and winning two games, and the thought of putting 11 past Fleury???? Not happening. What we are seeing in this series is actually quite simple. When teams get scoring from their bottom six like this they simply can't be beat...If Brayden Schenn and Sean Couturier are...

Don't clean the garage when the game is on, you might miss something

I stepped out to clean the garage and I missed this fight between Sidney Crosby vs Claude Giroux and this bout between Kris Letang vs Kimmo Timonen. The moral of the story is that you can clean the garage some other day. Related articles Playoff Previews: Penguins vs Flyers (pubpools.wordpress.com)
