In case you missed it: Penguins, Flyers fight it out

Yesterday’s game with the Flyers was just crazy.  Not only did they own us after we opened up a 2-0 lead in the first period but things got out of control with about a minute left in the game.  I mean it was an all out brawl on the ice, even the coaches got into […]

The NHL itself couldn’t be happier with round one as every series was competitive, except for the […]
