New Jersey Devils
Today was one of those days in sports that made me proud to be a Philly fan. More importantly, it made me VERY proud to be a Flyers fan.
That isn’t something you always hear from a Philly sports fan, but today it is a distinction worth mentioning. The Pittsburgh Penguins came out today, looking more interested in hurting people and disgracing themselves than actually winning a hockey playoff series. For years now, I have heard about how horrible Philly fans are and how the Flyers are dirty and so on and so forth. It has always made me sick. Today, the team that the NHL has embraced and tried to protect because the future of hockey rests on the shoulders of Sidney Crosby came out and embarrassed themselves. Today, Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Arron Asham, Kris Letang and the rest of Penguins were the disgrace.
Arron Asham cross-checked Brayden Schenn in the throat, then leaned down and punched him as he laid defenseless and motionless on the ice. What a criminal. Common fol...

Sid the Kid is letting his fist do the talking this afternoon.
During the second period of a pivotal game 3 showdown between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers, the usually mild-mannered Crosby scuffled with the Flyers Claude Giroux. As this fight was wrapping up, Kris Letang and Kimmo Timonen started throwing punches, with Letang opening up a cut on Timonen’s...
Coming into the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, there was a league wide consensus that the series between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers would be one of the best series that the opening round had to offer.Even with all the lead up, what has unfolded in the first three games could not have been seen by anyone.Through three games there has been 32 goals scored...
Hey...Hey...There's no hair-pulling in hockey except when the Philadelphia Flyers face the Pittsburgh Penguins in the playoffs.
Check out Pittsburgh's Craig Adams who decides to grab Scott Hartnell's curly locks during a fight in the third period:
The Flyers would win game three and take a three games to nothing series lead.
Danny Briere recorded his second two-goal performance of the series and added an assist as the host Philadelphia Flyers outslugged the Pittsburgh Penguins 8-4 to seize a commanding 3-0 lead in their Eastern Conference quarterfinal matchup.Rookie Matt Read and Max Talbot tallied twice and fellow former Penguin Jaromir Jagr notched three assists. Claude Giroux collected a "Gordie...
Pittsburgh Penguins forward Craig Adams was suspended one game Monday for instigating a fight in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals against the Philadelphia Flyers.
The incident occurred late in the third period of the Penguins' 8-4 loss Sunday when Adams drew a minor penalty, a fighting major and a game misconduct.
Adams will miss Thursday's Game 4 of the series...
The Pittsburgh Penguins have played, by the admission of a lot of their beat writers, the worst hockey of the year at the worst possible time...A Friday 13th game ended 8-5 in favor of the Flyers for a 2-0 series lead. That led to today's game three and an, almost, identical result...The game completely degraded into what happened below with 5 minutes or so to go in regulation...
Arron Asham should be gone for the rest of the NHL playoffs for this cross check and then punch on Brayden Schenn. There was nothing wrong with Schenn's hit on Paul Martin, yet Asham attacks Schenn.
Penguins forward James Neal should have been thrown out of the game for this questionable blindside on Sean Couturier. The refs really blew this call and their inaction...
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...
OK, tell me if you've heard this story before: The Philadelphia Flyers fall behind in the first period only to come back to win a playoff game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
On Sunday, after letting Pittsburgh score first for the third straight game, Philadelphia battled back and put the game -- and perhaps the series -- away with style in an 8-4 win that gave the Flyers a...
Hockey This Week The majority of people, whether it be fans, players or otherwise in Wells Fargo Center yesterday were sporting huge smiles as the Flyers thumped their Keystone State rivals from Pittsburgh for the second straight game. But nobody’s grin was bigger than Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren. Holmgren, who came under fire in the offseason for trading his pair...

The majority of people, whether it be fans, players or otherwise in Wells Fargo Center earlier today were sporting huge smiles as the Flyers thumped their Keystone State rivals from Pittsburgh for the second straight game. Philadelphia's second eight-goal outburst in as many games chased Marc-Andre Fleury from the Penguins' net all while pushing them to the brink of elimination...

Wondering why the Pittsburgh Penguins are behind three games to none in their first round series against the Philadelphia Flyers?
A five minute stretch by Chris Kunitz late in the second period helps to explain.
With 7:30 remaining in the second period and Pittsburgh trailing by only one goal, Kunitz dragged...
Sunday’s Pittsburgh-Philadelphia game featured at least three shocking scenes in which the player’s clear intent was to deliver a blow the head: Arron Asham’s hit on Brayden Schenn and James Neal’s cowardly back-to-back attacks on Sean Couturier and Claude Giroux.
That’s bad enough. But it seems there’s been at least one vicious head shot in every frickin’ game since...
