Game 3 Pump Up Video

Tonight, it’s G’s night. Calling it, just like I called the meth lab. My first game of the year he scored his first goal of the year. Going tonight and he’s starting his playoff scoring.

That’s pretty good, actually. Of course, the joke might not be on bloggers. Those Snow Bowl sweatshirts alone paid for my honeymoon and several years worth of utility bills.

This post originally appeared on the site on May 13, 2011, the day after Dan Carcillo manually stimulated what turned out to be a CB reader in an Atlantic City hotel room. I was told, at the time, that “her dad would be proud” because she denied Carcillo sex… and instead settled for a stand-up triple. 

 

When Dan Carcillo (@og_carbomb13) Tweets to fellow NHLer Paul Bissonnette, good things are bound to happen.

Car Bomb quickly disarmed and removed the Tweet.

Just another day inside the head of Dan Carcillo, folks.

There’s a cross-state battle looming on the horizon. It’s just far enough off to keep from talking about it, but just close enough to think about. Tonight, the Flyers can inch closer to a showdown with Pittsburgh in the second round. So… let’s start our Yinzer hate now, especially since the Rangers are kind of boring and don’t really have anyone we intensely dislike (yet– Dan Carcillo may play tonight).

I have no idea what this wayward Penguins fan is doing in Flyers territory, in Delaware. I can only assume he’s protesting his mounting debt at MBNA. But that’s not the worst part about this picture, which is obviously the customized sweater. Under no circumstances, no matter your allegiance, is this acceptable. If you’re going to do this sort of thing, at least have the decency to make it dark enough so that people can read it, or use duck tape. I hate the Penguins with every fiber of my being and even I’m slightly offended by this.

ROOT Sports made a delightful – if not intentional – error when spelling Sergei Bobrovsky’s name. You’d think it was just a simple mistake, but then you’ll be reminded of the time one of their producers intentionally withheld evidence of a Flyers goal from the league and figure that, yeah, they probably did this on purpose. Boobrovksy. Heh.

Matt Cooke 

He’s not a Penguin anymore, but he’s still got some of that blood in him:

Carry on. Is it 8 yet?

Not bad. I’ve got to admit, I don’t hate the #ClutchTime hashtag. It… actually fits the team. But might I recommend a Wolf of Broad Street shirt, also orange, for all your crushing needs?

Good man, Keys.

OH MY GOD IT’S TOTALLY LIKE THAT SANTA BEARD WITH 25 SPACES FOR COTTON BALLS COUNTING DOWN TO CHRISTMAS! I LOVE THOSE THINGS!*

Flyers equipment manager Derek Settlemyre – whom you may recognize as the guy who gleefully assaults head coaches after big goals – was on FOX Good Day with Jenn Frederick this morning. He showed off a board containing 16 spaces for game pucks from playoff wins. Right now there is… one… one puck on the board, but there’s room for many more. The idea is that the Flyers will collect a puck from each win and adhere it to the board. Which means that pucks will undoubtedly start disappearing before the Flyers can get their hands on them. Unless, of course, Chris Pronger is earning his $5 million per year salary(!) by serving as a consultant on retaining game pucks.

Settlemyre also mentioned that Claude Giroux was unable to get his pre-game grilled cheese in New York. So now we know the reason for his struggles.

*My mother-in-law-to-be bought me a chocolate Christmas countdown this year and it was awesome. I’m 12.

Jeremy Roenick joined Anthony Gargano and Rob Ellis on WIP today and recounted a story about the time Craig Berube, then a Phantoms player-coach, walked into the Flyers’ locker room and punched him in the face.

Roenick had sucker punched Berube earlier in their careers and, as Roenick puts it, Berube chased him around for two or three years, but was never able to get back at him. So, some years later (2003-2004-ish), once Roenick was a Flyer, Berube was able to exact revenge, somewhat unexpectedly:

The Phantoms’ and the Flyers’ locker rooms are connected together, and Chief obviously feels very comfortable because he’s been a part of the Flyers’ organization for such a long time. So he comes into the Flyers locker room where I’m getting ready and just hanging out in the locker room. He walks in, I’m like, “Hey Chief, what’s going on?” He’s like, “Hey JR, what’s going on?” BOOM! Just slugs me. Just cracks me, right? And I kind of went down onto one knee and I kind of got up, and he’s like, “I told you I’d get you.” And believe it or not we played golf later that day… with me, Boucher, Tocchet and Chief.

Culture.

I included this in the Roundup, but figured it was worth calling it. As you know, Crossing Broad Tickets rounds up the best available seats on the secondary market and makes them searchable, sortable and filterable. And it actually works. Last night I bought tickets for Game 3 for $170 a pop in the 15th row behind the goal. Not bad considering that’s currently the average price of all tickets available on the secondary market.

Anyway, if you want to go to Game 3, 4 or any other game, got you covered. Check out what’s available– I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Thanks to our friends from TiqIQ for putting this infographic together. And yes, we do get a small commission for each sale.
