Not sure what it is about the CONSOL Energy Center – which, ironically, had energy problems before the game last night – but the Flyers are now 10-1-1 there. Maybe the Penguins would’ve been better off had the lights never came on.
Nice gesture from the Yinz having O Canada sung before the game:
But am I the only one here who thinks that the anthem singer having to switch mics for our national anthem is the weirdest thing ever? Like, that mic has an LCD screen, right? Why not just remotely change the flag to a USA flag? This can’t be that hard. I’m very perplexed by the digital mic flag. Very perplexed.
Whaddya say, whadday say? Let’s play some sport, kid!
When one door closes, another one opens. We may have lost Dan Bylsma and his glasses (#respect), but we’ve gained old timey-looking Mike Johnston. I’m in agreement with reader Mike here, but I think MJ looks a little more like someone who’d play a major supporting role in Argo or Frost-Nixon.

You could almost hear him yelling, “Someone get the Post on the line! We need to go public with this before the President gets word. Ah, bully!” In fact, forget about “looks like,” MJ is basically Bryan Cranston:

I wish I got video of it last night (because it doesn’t exist anywhere right now), but Pierre McGuire speaking french to Pierre-Edouard Bellemare after he scored his first goal made me extremely uncomfortable– more uncomfortable than that Coots interview last year. After naming every Podunk European town Bellemare has played in, McGuire started speaking in the Pierres’ native tongue. I’m fairly certain that even if Bellemare had not scored, McGuire still would have wanted to interview him – or at the very last, cuddle him – just so he could do that. Weirdo.
