Oh they have to be expecting ridiculous ratings for Game 4.
And I also say they have to be hoping Pittsburgh wins tonight so they can milk it for at least 2 more days
Faster than a bullet from a gun
He is faster than everyone
Quicker than the blinking of an eye
Like a flash you could miss him going by
No one knows quite how he does it but it's true they say
He's the master of going faster. -George Harrison
BTW, it seemed to me that the referees' called eveything during the season and now they seem reluctant to blow the whistle. Am I wrong?
Have a very blessed day!
Here we go...Flyers - Pens on NBCSports and Rangers - Senators on CNBC. I'm as nervous as the proverbial cat in a roomful of rocking chairs.
@#$!* Bryzgalov...stop a darn puck! Flyers too passive.

Both goalies in Philly look like Crap so far
Rangers have a 2 goal lead already.
Well, the refs in Philly have made it clear they are going to call everything. Flyers 2 PP goals, back up 3-2 still in the first. Phew...
4-3 Pens end of one, Pens start 2nd on the PP. Looks like pond hockey. If I'm Lavi I really ought to think about starting Bobrovsky next period. He cannot be worse than Bryz.
Ugh...6-3 Pens now. Bob in goal, but this one is over IMHO.
Holy jumpin' jellybeans...Bob wasn't the answer. 9-3 Pens. Complete embarassment, terrible effort.

This game was the anti-Game 3 from the start in that there was no point where I was really enjoying the game. The call 17 seconds in on Kennedy was a joke, just as bad was the awful call on Malkin on the face off. It continued with Read being given two minutes for a shoulder check. Either way, this game has lived up to what was expected - a continual PP for one team or the other.
The best action in this series was when it was 5-5. There's been what, 3 minutes total in this game?
And Slim - any questions about Bobrovsky now? Sullivan and Staal's goals both show exactly why he's a 10-games a year back up. Shoot high and if it's on net it's in. He's Niitymaki but worse.
I'm just seriously stunned right now. I have no words.
Ugh, here we go. Let's see if 9 is enough....
I'm almost ready to see them both sit and start Leighton. He's with the team and did get to the Finals in 2010. Complete turnaround from the first three games, Flyers with no defensive prescence, passes aren't crisp, just a terrible effort in a close-out game at home.
Man that Roethlisburger is some QB
I don't think there needs to be a replacement for Bryz. He was outstanding the second half of the season. It's just that he has to find his game for this team to succeed. And a lot of that is the Flyers playing a sound game in front of him (no differently than Fleury. How many of the goals he gave up did not have him in the splits? Maybe the couple fluke goals, but those can often be the consequence of not being compact because the goals being given up required him going post-to-post.)
akh - don't forget they tried the Leighton route last year and it blew up in Laviolette's face.
After tonight, I'm honestly going to predict a 3-2 final in Game 5. I think Fleury is starting to get confident and was looking much more settled in the second half of the game. I also think that giving up 10 goals will have the Flyers playing an almost Tampa-style trap.
Fleury is looking more confident, but he's facing almost no shots, no traffic. Flyers are 2 steps slow, playing with no spirit. I can't express how disappointed I am in this performance.
Well, nice to see the Penguins actually play tonight. You're back home in Pitt on Friday. Continue the momentum.
Time to watch the end of the Rangers/Ottawa game...They are going into OT.
LA leads Vancouver 1-0 in the first. Goal to Kopitar.
Oh, we heard that word over the air in the 3rd period during the Pens game...
Now I'm hoping LA takes out Vancouver so we can quit hearing about D.Sedin being out of the lineup. Plus,I like Jonathan Quick. Watched quite a bit of Kings games this season.
Vancouver survives. Onto game 5.
