If I remember my Hockey lingo, the Power Play comes when a player from the opposing team is in the penalty box, giving the team with the power play the advantage of numbers.

I thought it meant your goals count as double or something. Or maybe you are allowed to aim for the face. That's pretty rubbish if it's that; just about every other game has 'power play' too, they just don't call it that.

Now that I think about it, the name Flyers would also go well with the theme of recent SC winners

I wish that were so, it would be way more interesting.


I was just at the Blue Jackets store and I'd like to know why, even though they never made it anywhere near the playoffs this year, they still have the gall to put $35 pricetags on t-shirts.

Never buy t-shirts at a game.

As for the Flyers, they seem to have things well in hand so far. Looks like they are going to the finals

This wasn't even in Nationwide Arena. They have a store at the Tuttle Crossing mall in Dublin, I go there a few times a year. It's weirdly posh for a hockey-and-hockey-accessories store.

Actually, I wanted to get a jersey for my kid and that ended up being ridiculous, so I walked off with a(n?) "I'm a Blue Jackets Sweetheart" tshirt for $15 (actual manufacturing price about $1, I'm sure).

So what are your expectations? Flyers have huge momentum, but I don't think it's enough to overcome Chicago.

I'd say Hawks win 4-1 or 4-2.

However seeing what Flyers did to Boston, I wouldn't be too surprised if they'd be able to win the series.

Either way, the cup is coming to Finland

I never mustered an opinion about the thrashers.

I'd pick blackhawks over flyers.

Unfortunately, If I was a realist, I'd probably agree with you all.

But I'm not Flyers in 6

I gotta go with the Colonel on this one.

We doubted the Flyers before and then they did something done only 3(?) other times in hockey history

But I was on the Flyers have some talent train for months

On paper the Hawks are a better team.

However, on paper, Washington and Pittsburgh should have pounced all over the Habs, and the Flyers should have been bounced by the Devils.

Funny game, hockey, eh?

I think hockey took up three whole pages in Sports Illustrated this week. Four if you count the blurb in the table of contents.

Lookin' good.

Usually it's only takes up a few paragraphs on a page with soccer, water polo and women's fencing.

Nice job for the Flyers OT victory the other day.

My roommate rushed home to watch the end of the game. It was tied 3-3 with a minute left. I was like ".....I'm gonna play Super Smash Brothers, there's only like 1 minute left in the game. Its basically over anyway."

Boy was he mad.
