Nope. Any Eastern team over Dallas or Detroit. Not a fan of the Flyers at all, but better than the West....Moot point anyway, I think.

Looks that way. The Pens are the only team that can give the Red wings a run.

I was hoping Dallas would make it a series just to tire the wings out a bit.
05-13-2008, 09:28 AM
Same thing I had hoped the Rangers would do.
The unsettling thing for Flyers fans is the Pens didn't even play well in game 2, yet they were still a strong enough team to keep winning. The Pens are very well coached and they are shutting down the Flyers #1 line. Much props to the Pens the Flyers will be lucky to win 1 of 2 at home.

Downey shows what a retard he is again. Why is this guy still playing hockey?
I wish someone would two hand him across the head.

oh I wouldn't hold that pass against him too much, he's young and they tend to make mistakes now again -- Malkin did the same stupid cross ice pass that led to the breakway goal last game.. BUT I really didn't like the frustration hit he put on Sykora after he blew that pass.
05-14-2008, 12:44 PM
Malkin's was a brutal pass for sure.

Your right AP. No philly fans expected them to make any noise or even make it to the playoffs for that matter. Its definitely a positive year. I got to hand it to the Pens they are extremely well coached and stuck to their game plan and Gonchar is just flat out awesome. I said Pens in 6. We shall see how tonight goes.
05-16-2008, 08:29 AM
Flyers did what they needed to do last night. Wish Laraque was on the ice at the end when they were slashing Crosby off the face off.
05-16-2008, 10:04 AM
Ya last nights game reminded me of the habs series. Philly really boxed out the pens and made it hard for them to score. Even with chances Biron stopped them. Good job to Philly for at least getting a win in the series, even if they go out it's not 4-0, that would suck. Now their going back to Pitts and a win there is almost impossible but we shall see.
05-16-2008, 10:52 AM
I think Biron saved almost 40 shots -- he played great
05-16-2008, 11:28 AM
Yeah he played solid. I think the Flyers can take 1 more in Pitt. But after that the show is over the Pens have to much skill.
05-18-2008, 10:09 PM
I thought Flyers would lose in Six and the Stars in 5. Guess I had it backwards. Congrats Bum M Your Pens played very well!!!
05-19-2008, 08:21 AM
Yeah, they looked good. I know they are scoring a lot, but their defense has been pretty solid too. Got the deflections they needed. Congrats to the Flyers, what a turnaround season. Even though it was 4-1, it seemed like a closer series.
05-19-2008, 10:04 AM
Time to put my Flyer's gear away. I already have my Phillies apparel on. lol.
05-20-2008, 07:17 AM
I agree the flyers had a great run but the pens just have too many household names, so much skill.... Looks like Detroit and the Pens in the final. What a series that will be.
I think the best goal of the flyers series was when Malkin did his power shot right in front of Biron, that was just awesome.
05-20-2008, 08:45 AM
That was the most amazing goal. I actually thought he was going to fake the shot. LOL your right AP that shot was awesome.

Without a doubt. I am glad the Pens are representing the East instead of the Flyers. Flyers would not be able to skate with the Wings that would have been a sweep just like 97'. I can not believe not one game in the east or western conference did not go O.T.

Probably biases, but Pens in six. I can't see Detroit closing it out in Pittsburgh in a game six.
I just read on CBC that Franzen is close. But they had so many typos in the story that I won't trust anything they say, lol. Said Detroit won the series 4-1.
05-20-2008, 05:28 PM
It's going to be a crazy match up, can't wait for Saturday. Two power house teams and if I'm not mistaken they didn't meet in the regular season?
05-21-2008, 08:17 AM
I think maybe in preseason is all.

Guys, enjoy the games the game Saturday. I'm heading up north to work on the cabin. Small town, but there's a lodge that will have the game on, so I'll be watching with my Ulf Sammuelsson jersey on, lol.

Number five, black and gold from 1991. Here's who I have....
Lemieux (black), of course. Coffey (ugly ass yellow), Kasparaitis (white), Francis (black), a nameless blue one, a nameless white and blue sweater one....
But Ulf seems to come out this time of year....
Maybe I do need help.
05-22-2008, 03:41 PM
Hey, I have an autographed Ed Hospodar puck....Hmmm, calling a shrink right now....
I have a lot of odd stuff. One of our oldest family friends is one of the announcers with NBC and Versus, so I've been to a number of events and he's picked me up some stuff.

Sykora didn't play in the pre-season? He's extremely underrated for what he does, I think he's top 3 on the pens right now. Malkin has to be the best player though, Crosby's good but Malkin is just amazing. What do you guys think?
05-24-2008, 04:01 PM
Oh ya can't wait for the game. Definitely gonna surround sound that when I come back from the gym.
05-27-2008, 09:52 AM
Well, I love Malkin and Sykora, but it would be nice if they would show up for the finals at some point. Detroit has just shut everyone down. Only signs of life I've seen are Dupuois, Roberts, Orpik? Crosby has had a few nice plays, but....the wings have the Pens in total lock down. Hoping things will change in Pitt. I think they will, but I don't think there is any way the Pens come back.
05-27-2008, 09:52 AM
I need a Domi jersey.
