Penguins vs. Flyers

This is probably the most hilarious series that has been played, and may not be surpassed. Obviously there is a lot of bad blood between these two teams, but wow, I'm not sure if I'm watching hockey or MMA on Ice (Coming Soon to an Arena near you). The best thing about this series is that some of the best players in the league are involved. The star, Sidney Crosby, his teammate and probably the second best in the league, Evgeni Malkin, and Jordan Staal are all studs on the Pen's side, along with their goalie Marc-Andre Fleury. For Philly, they have Scott Hartnell and Claude Giroux to counter the Penguins, along with James van Riemsdyk, whom I absolutely love. But, the issue that is the Flyers downfall, that they don't have a goalie like Fleury. I've been thinking this for a while and it was proven this week. Ilya Bryzgalov stinks, and the Flyers will not make it past the Second Round if they win this series. They can win this series by tiring them out, and with a strong game by Giroux, but if those two things don't happen, the Penguins will channel their inner 2004 Red Sox and come back from an 0-3 deficit against a bitter rival
