Thanks to the Philadelphia Flyers

Anger, Inc.

There’s a moment in the latest blockbuster “The Avengers” that I think we all in Philly can all relate to. We all know the story of Bruce Banner, brilliant scientist, who played with Gamma rays and turns into a green monster when angry.  He has been able to keep “The Other Guy” in check and when asked his secret, he continually deflects the question.

Negadelphia: Fixing The Philadelphia Flyers

***Negadelphia is an exercise where I channel the opinions of Philly’s worst into a post. No idiots were harmed in the making of this post, unfortunately.*** Another year and no Stanley Cup for the Philadelphia Flyers.  I’m getting fed up with this garbage!  These underachieving losers have a lot to do in the offseason if they actually want to be contenders.

Ponikarovsky Beats Bryzgalov In Overtime, Gives Devils 4-3 Win

After a pair of failed power-play attempts in overtime, the Flyers let Alexei Ponikarovsky’s first goal of the 2012 playoffs be the game-winner in the Devils’ 4-3 victory tonight at the Prudential Center. The win gives Jersey a 2-1 series lead. Ilya Kovalchuk jumped on the Flyers’ clear in the neutral zone and caught Philly’s skaters in a line change when he hit Ponikarovsky with a pass at the Orange and Black’s blue line. With only one defender back, the Devils’ forward decided to shoot rather than pass. After Ilya Bryzgalov denied his first shot, the former Los Angeles King jumped on …
