Penguins Update: Facing Flyers May Not Be Fun

00ppfront When the Penguins and Flyers resume the Commonwealth Cold War in Philadelphia on Thursday night, it’ll be the definitive case of two foes headed in opposite directions. While the Pens have zoomed to the top of the Metropolitan Division, the Flyers are off to a ghastly 1-6 start. Indeed, the Pens are firing on all cylinders while Philadelphia [...]

Penguins Must Wait ‘Til Next Year

00ppfront As a long-time Penguins fan, writing the summary for yesterday’s Game 6 loss to the Flyers was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do. It was somewhat akin to writing an obituary for a dear friend who suddenly had passed away. Watching the game was even more painful. With dreams of a dramatic comeback from an 0-3 series deficit dancing [...]

Flyers Throttle Penguins 5-1, Advance to Second Round

00ppfront The Sports Illustrated jinx is alive and well. Seven days after SI posed the question—“Who Will Stop the Penguins?”—on the cover of its April 15 issue the new-look Flyers provided the answer. Paced by Claude Giroux’s three-point effort and some stingy defense (40 blocked shots), the Flyers eliminated their surprisingly subdued rivals in Game [...]

Penguins Show Heart, Destroy Flyers 10-3

00ppfront The objective in any survival situation is to adapt, adjust, and overcome. With their playoff lives on the line the victory-starved Penguins achieved all three of those goals during Game 4 on Wednesday night. Three days after the Flyers delivered a beat-down that left them teetering on the brink of elimination, the boys from the ‘Burgh respon [...]

Flyers Outclass Penguins 8-4

00ppfront Prior to the “Battle of Pennsylvania,” Flyers forward Scott Hartnell boldly proclaimed, “It’s going to be a bloodbath.” The Philly villain’s prediction came true—in spades—on Sunday afternoon during a raucous Game 3 at the Wells Fargo Center. In an ugly affair that featured 158 penalty minutes and battles galore, the Flyers outclassed the Pen [...]

Flyers Torch Penguins 8-5 in Barnburner

00ppfront It’s no secret the Penguins and Flyers have one of the most heated rivalries in all of sports. But they also play some incredibly entertaining hockey. Such was the case Friday night before a packed house at CONSOL Energy Center. In one of the most riveting games ever witnessed in Western Pennsylvania the never-say-die Flyers—paced by hat tric [...]

Flyers Rally, Smoke Sputtering Penguins 6-4

00ppfront In all likelihood the Penguins and the Flyers will clash in the opening round of the Stanley Cup playoffs during the very near future. If Sunday’s matinee contest at CONSOL Energy Center was a preview, the Pens could be in big trouble. After striking for two quick goals, the home team crumbled like the dome on the old Civic Arena en route to [...]

Penguins Doin’ Fine without Jagr

00ppfront As our Penguins prepare to battle archenemy (and likely first-round playoff opponent) Philadelphia on Sunday, I thought it might be a good time to reflect on the Flyers’ signing of free agent Jaromir Jagr last summer. Kind of a hockey version of Back to the Future, if you will. Just to refresh your memory, the former Steel City great decided [...]

Flyers Stun Penguins 3-2 in Overtime

00ppfront Just when it seemed as if the Penguins might never lose another game, the bottom fell out against the archrival Flyers at Wells Fargo Center on Sunday. After piling up a two-goal lead (not to mention a 27-10 advantage in shots) through 40 minutes of play, the Pens watched as the Flyers roared back to snatch a 3-2 victory on Scott Hartnell’s d [...]

Penguins Cooke Crumbles Flyers 6-4

00ppfront Once upon a time the Penguins used to come down with a strange malaise called the “Philly Flu” whenever they traveled cross state to take on Philadelphia. While the Flyers remain one of the NHL’s elite teams, visiting the “City of Brotherly Shove” no longer evokes the same stomach-churning symptoms it once did. Take Saturday afternoon’s match [...]
