What they're saying:
But losing games to teams like the Bruins, which suddenly suck as hard as their fanbase (it's almost like Tim Thomas decided to turn down invites to the win column.), isn't going to get it done, so I think the Flyers should try to win all the rest of their games this year.

Just a huge hockey game in a week that was filled with huge hockey games. The last time the Penguins had a long streak like this one going, it was the Flyers that broke it. Plus, the Flyers are still only three points behind the Pens and they're still a likely first-round opponent.
And they're the Flyers so... you know.
Penguins/Flyers games are always a big deal and always entertaining. And now Sidney Crosby's back.
Back-to-back afternoon road games against division rivals. This weekend is where legends are made. Buckle up.
