The Stanley Cup Playoffs begin in less than one hour. Your Philadelphia Flyers will visit the hated Pittsburgh Penguins. Bryzgalov vs Fleury. Briere and Grossmann are back. You know all the story lines. At 7:30 tonight, the puck will drop and nothing else will matter. Not the whining and the crying (but enough about Crosby…ZING), not the Flyers 4-2 mark against the Pens this year, not Bryzgalov’s struggles early in the year or the huge point total Giroux accumulated in the regular season, nothing. All that will matter is the final score tonight, and every game after that. And hopefully there are a lot more wins to come.
16 wins and the cup comes to Philly. Let’s get that parade.
Here’s to hoping we hear “Knock Knock” blasting from the away locker room tonight. Let’s do it.
Flyers in six.
