#5 Philadelphia Flyers vs. #4 Pittsburgh Penguins

For the record I don't really think there is some league wide conspiracy to prop up Pittsburgh (I think the Pens did it through a series of fortunate top draft picks).

There's no conspiracy but the NHL is a big big business. If Crosby landed in Toronto then I wonder if we would hear about him even more, which is a little sick. It shouldn't surprise anybody (perhaps past the age of 18-20?) if the NHL brass give a little more preference to certain teams, players and markets over others. It's Bettman's job to follow the money like David Stern did, for better? or worse.

The definition and extent of "preference" are what the "conspiracies" are based on.

If you would have told me that the Pens would lose both home games after having big leads, I would have never believed it. What a crazy series.

Philly has sucked balls at home this season though.

What happened to Fleury?

7 goals on 30 shots. And the Pens faithful were saying that Bryz sucks. Hah.

Double hat trick for the Flyers?

Yup, Giroux and Couturier.
