Tonight the Penguins (46-17-11) will play their final game of the season against the Philadelphia Flyers (34-32-8) at PPG Paints Arena. The Flyers are garbage, the city of Philadelphia is garbage, and you're garbage if you root for or support their teams / city. Hell, apparently Pittsburgh even has better cheesesteaks than Philadelphia now. One thing is certain, no matter which team you root for Rocky is fake. I've never seen a city so emotionally attached to a fake boxer.
The Flyers are coming off a 1-0 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night. Columbus sucks and I hope Dubinsky steps on a lego, but anytime the Flyers lose it's a great day for not only Pittsburgh but America as well. The Penguins are coming off a 4-3 shootout loss to the Islanders on Friday night. The Pens played well but the Islanders had a #66 on their team, so that's why the Pens lost.
The good news about tonight's game is that we won't have to hear Lauren Hart sing the National Anthem. It's been reported that when Hart sings the anthem, millions of puppies jump to their death. That's not good.
Also adding to the great news, the Penguins will be wearing their sexy black and 'Pittsburgh Gold' Stadium Series jerseys that they faced the Flyers in back on February 25th. Hopefully the Flyers wear their Stadium Series jerseys as well. I am not going to lie, those Flyer Stadium Series jerseys are beautiful. Ok back to hating on Philadelphia... did you know that Rocky is fake?
To be honest, I don't know who even plays for the Penguins anymore. Everyone is hurt. Legit everyone. I probably just accidentally injured a Penguin player by typing this. But seriously. Cameron Gaunce is good at hockey now? Pretty sure he had a goal and an assist last game against the Isles. That's impressive. Bryan Rust came back, I knew that. That's good. Letang, Malkin, Maatta, Daley, Hagelin, Guentzel, Sestito (apparently), Hainsey, and Wilson are hurt. It's hard to get motivated to watch a regular season game whenever your team is essentially missing 69% of their starting lineup. However, this game is against the Flyers and anything involving the city of Philadelphia or the Flyers makes me mad. Naturally, I am going to care a little bit more about this game tonight than most games.
I just double checked to confirm.... Rocky still isn't real...
Pens are starting their backup goalie tonight after their starter played very well on Friday night.
Claude Giroux, notorious for having the baton passed to him for being the best player in the NHL, only has 14 goals this season.
The guy that passed him that baton has 42 goals...
The Flyers are really bad.
Gostisbehere is listed on DailyFaceoff as the Flyers 3rd pair RD, but since he's good at hockey I bet they scratch him. Classic Flyers.
Never forget when Bellemare didn't take his helmet off to fight Bobby Farnham. I'm mad. Coward.
Friendly reminder: The Flyers are paying defenseman Mark Streit to score goals against them. Never forget when the Flyers traded him to Tampa for 8 seconds before Tampa sent him here. Good times.
The last time these two teams played, the Flyers beat the Penguins 4-0 back in Philly on March 15th.
Per the Penguins website, the Penguins are 22-2-3 in their last 27 home games.
Not an expert, but I feel like that's really good.
Phil Kessel is currently on a five game point streak, look for that to continue.
Penguins recalled defenseman David Warsofsky - Defenseman Frank Corrado was sent back down to WBS.
hahahahahhahahahahaha never forget
The Flyers are pretty bad and I really don't know what else to write...
Oh yeah, Rocky isn't real.
Do it. Go Pens!
