Want to take your Flyers hate on the road?
There’s an app for that.

No Penguins fan needs to be given a reason to hate the Flyers.
And no one needs any motivation to get up for a game against them.
The fingers are being secured as we speak.
There’s a rumor going around that the Flyers have been starving Scott Hartnell for two weeks so that he’ll be hungry for this game.
Of course Hartnell is the only professional athlete that takes the phrase “hungry for a game” literally and tries to eat someone.
It will definitely be tough out there, but the Pens are up to it.
The Flyers will no doubt be looking at this game as a chance to prove themselves.
It’s the first time the Flyers will be in Mellon Arena this year.
Also, remember that tonight’s game is on Versus, not FSN.

Oh John Stevens.
How we will miss you.
But even the Flyers eventually realized they had no shot of winning with you behind the bench.
It’s not like they’re tearing up the league this year anyway.
You’d figure that they could succeed based on the leadership of Mike Richards alone but, for whatever reason, that doesn’t seem to be the case.
The team is 2-4 since Peter Laviolette took over.
Of course, we’re not ones to criticize a coaching change.
Sometimes those moves are very beneficial to a team. For more information see Bylsma, Dan.

Tonight’s lines:
Chris Kunitz – Sidney Crosby – Bill Guerin
Pascal Dupuis – Evgeni Malkin – Ruslan Fedotenko
Matt Cooke – Jordan Staal – Tyler Kennedy
Mike Rupp – Craig Adams – Eric Godard/Max Talbot

Sergei Gonchar – Brooks Orpik
Mark Eaton – Kris Letang
Jay McKee – Alex Goligoski

Marc-Andre Fleury

Bylsma has said that the team’s healthy scratch will be a game time decision.

From the Flyers website:
“Santa Sacks?”
“Lower Level Package?”

Even Charlie is embarrassed.

Do it.

Go Pens.
