I haven't felt this excited about ice hockey since the Flyers won back-to-back Stanley Cups in the 70's. I admit I'm not a diehard, watch every regular season game kinda' fan, BUT these play-off games are really exciting even though I'm probably atypical, I don't love all the fighting. If its allowed because of ratings, I'm even less for it, but that's just me! Part of me is saying its OK if we don't sweep Pittsburgh in 4 games, if we do, I'm afraid one of the Flyers will end up severely injured. I don't really understand the rules when it comes to when fights are broken up or not.
As far as the last game with the Penguins ~ WOW!! I have pity on Pittsburgh and actually I feel really sorry for Crosby and at the same time, I lost so much respect for him. His behavior to me was all about feeling so desperate, which is really sad. Why would anyone who has traveled the road he has with concussions, deliberately put himself in harms way like he did-he started it? Stupid, silly and sad and I'm sure so frustrating for him, he has had a frustrating season...but its just a game... And the hair pulling on Hartnell? I felt like I was watching playground stuff but in adult bodies.
Some of the tension between the Flyers and the Penguins goes back to a few weeks ago. Funny about this Hulk Hogan Penguin fan mocking the Flyers and then the Flyers end up winning in an amazing come from behind.
