Briere & Co. Knock Off Devils in Game 1 of SemiFinals, and Giroux May Be The Second Coming of Christ

Naturally the Flyers tend to start their tilts a bit slow. It's why this season's team has been nicknamed The Comeback Kids.   Because of that and the defensive way the Devils play, I figured our first game of the series could quite possibly meet extra periods.

Watching The NFL Draft Tonight? LOLOL JK, Two ECQF Game 7's

But, hey, we all gave the Capitals the same doubt. Hell, we never thought Ottawa would take the Rangers this far. And for the love of Joe Pesci, EVERYONE believed the Penguins would have no problems ousting our Orange Soldiers!

ECQF: Battle of the Game 7's

Minus the Flyers, each Eastern Conference squad in the post-season is facing elimination the next couple days. Surprisingly all the underdogs have taken their favored adversaries to Game 7 of their QuarterFinals series.

A Farewell Tribute & Eulogy to the 2011-12 Pittsburgh Penguins

I've enjoyed reading these eulogies so much that I've decided (and been asked by a reader of mine) to partake and write my own. Below is the celebration of the life and mourning the passing of the 2011-12 Pittsburgh Penguins

"I Want That First Shift"

Pittsburgh had been playing desperate since Game 4 which obviously tipped to their favor for two straight contests. Yesterday's Game 6 did not lack similar desperation for the Pens, however this time it was just as imminent for Philadelphia to skate away victorious.

Time for a Legend to Rise

With the Flyers slipping ever closer to the abyss, it is time for a hero to rise.  There is no better person to take the reigns, and lead the Flyers into the second round, than Claude Giroux.

From Here On Out, It's Got To Be Skill vs Skill | PIT Unsettles PHL, 10 - 3

From here on out, it's got to be pure skill vs pure skill. The Penguins have proved to everyone, and -- more importantly -- to themselves that if they avert the frustration and rough stuff, they can take each game...game by game...with a victory.

There's Just Something About Cooter...

For Sean to draw comparison to a player of Francis’ caliber is of the highest compliment.  There is no question that the future is extremely bright for the 19-year-old.

Oh Shanny, Oh Shanny, Pass Me Your Brandy

Well, I thought Asham would get 6-games, and Neal would get two separate $2,500 fines. The explanation from Herr Shanahan in his suspension video is what has my blood boiling.
