Yeah, I gotta admit, the Flyer fans have talked a lot of smack and now they are eerily quiet.

Although to be honest, what can you say?

It's 9-3....a good ol' fashion whooping!

I'm p*ssed about the way the Pens played, I'm p*ssed about the way they reacted, but the one thing that still really p*sses me off is how in the hell did they not call offsides on Briere in Game 1! If they call offsides, this series is 2-2. Oh well, at least we're not getting swepted and Philly talk radio will have some issues to discuss tomorrow and Friday. LOL!!!

This has easily been the "best" series (at least to watch) of the playoffs so far.

Even though I'm rooting for the Flyers (ONLY because I don't like Crosby) I'm kinda happy we're going to have a Game 5.

Hell, as long as the Flyers win, I hope this goes 7 games!

Relax. The Flyers are still going to win the series but it's fun as hell watching the Pens put up 9 in Philly.

Well this has gotten quite boring. Never thought I would get so little joy when seeing the Pens hang a 10 spot on the Flyers. Just hope Philly keeps their heads over the last 14 min here. 1 nasty bit of play is enough for the series.

That sucks man. I'll be stuck in Baltimore for work, so I will probably miss yet another game of the series...

Cooke getting a misconduct for receiving? Leave it to Simmonds and Kubina to dash my hopes of having this one end amicably.

I wish they could play the last 3 games in Philadelphia where the Pens play better. Weird to say, but I'm not liking this game on Friday in Pittsburgh.

Both fan bases seem to be cowards....
Oh give it a fking rest, just because we aren't at the computer doesn't mean we were cowards...not everyone lives at their keyboard. Unlike certain Pens fans, I won't "go on vacation" after a pathetic loss.

I myself had an amazing view of the game. 12th row, dead center ice. Probably the best seats I'll ever have to a playoff game. I feel like I just had a front row seat to watching a pet get slaughtered.

Pure embarrassment. Terrible terrible game. I mean I don't even know where to start....so I just won't bother.

Luckily it's just one game. That's what I can tell myself

I got beat to the punch...they started up the "Crosby sucks" chant (which is one of my least favorite) before I had a chance to get in there.

I think the NHL wanted to fix the series to make it longer. I am a Pens fan (and a Flyers hater) but Philly has played really well, the Pens were a bunch of thugs in game 3 and were disgusting...

All this being said, I think the Flyers deserve the series, and will win it, and the NHL didn't need to interfere in game one at all...

Yeah, that game sucked, but the Pens looked so much better all-around. Definitely played like a team that was facing elimination and determined to do whatever it took to keep their season alive. Kudos to them.

And Rinaldi was an idiot for doing what he did, no doubt about that.

10 goals is 10 goals, and it luckily only counts as one game, but man it sure did expose some underlying concerns we have all had.

At least we get another home game in Pittsburgh tomorrow

I'm just pissed that the Flyers can't get a consistant playoff goalie. How hard is it to get just 1 consistent goalie? I mean seriously $50 million just went down the drain. Our russian goalies are both incompetent.

Consistent statement since 1975.

That was the ugliest game I've seen in years. I switched over to watch Ottawa beat the Rangers that game was so awful.

No effort last night by pretty much everyone in orange and black so they got what they deserved. One penalty after another, no skating or back check and no goal tending at all. With all the guys on D out the forwards need to back check a hell of a lot better than they have in this series and obviously Bryz has to better than he was in BOTH games in Philly. His rebound control has been bad all series and now last night he looked slow as hell going post to post.

Losing Grossman on a hit to the head last night could be huge if he isn't around for Friday. Matt Carle is still playing like Matt Carle which is terrible without Pronger to carry him and Kubina plays like a guy who never wanted to leave Tampa..oh wait he said he was upset to be traded and wanted to finish up in Tampa.

Really ? A guy named Hextall and his '87 Conn Smyth says you're clueless.

Flyers playoff goalie problems began in the '90s when they traded him in the Lindros deal. Prior to Hexy they had the best goalie in the league in Pelle Lindbergh who won the Vezina the year before his death and prior to Pelle they had a young Pete Peters who took them to the Finals in '80 so it goes back to the '90s not '75 as you say.

No worries or Now there is worries? Seems the Philly papers are more inclined to believe the 2nd. Like I said, the chances of the Pens winning this series are like 3 out of 100 but Philly has big problems in the 2nd round.
