I live in the Philly area.

Either way, this is going to be epic.

Pens cannot fail in this series. If they're going to fall, they can't fall to the team in the city with the worst fans imaginable.

Calling on an 18-year-old memory...yeah, that sounds like a Flyers' fan.

:lol: :lol:

Funnily enough, I actually saw the end of that game. I had given up after the second OT and gone to bed, but woke up at about 2:15 AM or so and couldn't get back to sleep. So I flipped the TV back on and was like "What the FUCK? This game is STILL going on?"

PS Jim's is quite good.

I remember when Ron Hextall's dad and uncle would take on Shultz and Co so, being old has it's advantages

People get all nuts about the Philly cheesesteak, but the best sandwich in the city is DiNic’s roast pork.

I tire of the old legacy that seems to follow this current Flyers team and teams from the past decade that says they are goonish.
Hasn't been that way for a long while.

If the Pens PK improves and if we can keep the Flyers top line somewhat in check the Pens win the series. My fear is that the Flyers top line is an early catalyst and we end up dropping home ice early.

good fact check...... i found my mistake, I should have said they had their least penalized season in their history. Not lowest of NHL 2018

Yea anyone expecting the fireworks from 2012 is out to lunch.
Also for those not following the past 2 years of the NHL, NJ is not a trapping team and is in fact one of the FASTEST teams in the league

Agree on the PK...been saying it for the past few weeks: if they lose, their epitaph will have "PK" written all over it

And DiNIC's for the best sandwiches?

For the all bad talking Pittsburghers do about Philly you can’t deny that it is a pretty damn good foodie destination. You’ll get thirsty though. Can’t drink out of two crusty old cups.

There's a place in Reading Terminal that makes a cheese steak with andouille sausage added that's no joke.
