Flyers Win 4-2


This is gonna be one great series. I'll go on a limb and say Flyers in 7.

I'm really going to go out on a limb and say Flyers in 5. Pens have home ice advantage and considering the Flyers haven't lost yet at Consol... :P

And if the hockey gods are fair, Pittsburgh will open the series without Orpik after his attempt to injure via kneeing tonight.

I'll be watching the game on Saturday, and for sure this series. I'm saying it's the roughest one out of all the playoff games.

"It's a cheap, dirty hit. I wonder what would happen if we did it to their two whining stars over there," Tortorella told reporters after the game, referring to centers Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin.

Tortorella didn't stop with Orpik, who received a five-minute major and a game misconduct for the hit, which occurred with less than five minutes left in the game.

"It's one of the most arrogant organizations in the league. They whine about this stuff all the time, and look what happens," Tortorella said.

"They'll whine about something else over there, won't they, starting with their two (expletive) stars."

It's really a shame Pronger won't be playing.

Flyers have their number. The Pens would've been lucky if NJ had the 5th spot instead.

John Tortorella's comments tonight.



Orpik has previous wrt knee-on-knees as well. Franzen in the pre-season, Helm in game 6 in 2008.
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

I think the Pens power play will be the difference in this series. Pens in 6.
Jordan Tootoo will wreck shop.

If this series plays out even close to its potential, it's going to be my favorite non-Wings series of the playoffs. With Pronger out, I can safely root for the Flyers. Even if the Pens take the series, they should take a serious beat down in the process. I for one am looking forward to it.
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Wow. #Penguins recall enforcer Steve MacIntyre from WBS. Season finale vs. Flyers on Sat. just got more interesting, in a scary way.
MacIntyre has no points and four PIM in his previous 11 games with the Pens.
