They're definitely trying to make a statement. Pittsburgh wouldn't call MacIntyre up for nothing. Who knows if he'll play another NHL game after tomorrow, if he plays. Who sits for him, though? Joe Vitale? Eric Tangradi? Asham and Adams will likely play. One would assume Shelley will be in Philadelphia's lineup, in addition to Rinaldo. Philly recalled Harry Zolniercyk today, and Giroux has been sick, supposedly. I don't think this will be a game where there is one fight early, and then the game will settle down.

I hope Philly beats the hell out of them tomorrow.

It's too bad Pronger's out because he could really lean on the top line players.

When I think of this series... Oh man... I feel like that one Halloween episode of The Simpsons where a haunted house turned the whole family against each other. He watched the characters circle each with weapons and chanted, "DIE... DIE... EVERYBODY DIE... MUAHAHAHAHA!"

Aren't these two teams locked into playing each other in the first round no matter what happens today?

It that's the case, honestly I think they may just save it for when the games really count and play not to get injured today.

They're locked. Today they're just playing to get the other team fined over sound bites.

:lol:

As fun as that would be to watch, I'm guessing the league has had conversations with both organizations prior to this game. And they don't want anyone getting suspended for the postseason.

Who knows though. I could be wrong and there's an all out brawl off the opening faceoff. Either way it should be an entertaining series.

I can't wait for to see this series, it is going to be great. I'm hoping the Flyers will win but I think the Pens will. Either way it should be a great series!!

I think the Pens power play will be the difference in this series. Pens in 6.



Only because the Pens will get a boat load of them when needed.I don,t think there is a team in sports I hate as much as the Pens.

John Tortorella's comments tonight.



Can,t argue with anything Torts said.

Should be really competitive, I say the Penguins in 5, with 4 of those games being one goal games. It might resemble the Det/SJ series two seasons ago.

This is WAR. By far the most interesting 1st rounder besides the Wings/Preds matchup. Hoping the Flyers take it.
Thank You TeeMan

This series will be fun to watch. I'm obviously rooting for Philly. I think it will be too close to call, though.

Any news on what the lineups for each team will be in game 1? Grossman will play, and it sounds like Briere will play, as well. Maybe Lilja sits on defense? JVR sounds like he will be a few more weeks before he's ready to come back.
