The tail of Game 3 has found its end. The talk, mud-slinging and discussion has snuffed out every storyline. It’s time to move on. The fact is, the Flyers still have to win another game, and Game 4 will either send us into a week-long euphoria, anticipating a round 2 opponent, or a two-day panic about can the Penguins do it?
Speaking to the media for the last time before Game 4, the Flyers and Penguins had little to say, but here are the notable quotes:
“That’s one of the nicer things they’ve said about me here.”
"I think (Crosby cover) its stupid. That doesn't reflect what Sidney Crosby is."
Concur. A vagina would have been more appropriate… but it's a family paper (except for the nudey ads in the back).
"I think we’re like the rest of the league and the rest of the hockey world. We’re a little confused."
Confused that the guy trucked a puckless Sean Couturier and elbowed Claude Giroux in the back of the head? I’m confused.
Finally, and somewhat boringly, the Flyers understand that the Penguins are streaky and capable of pulling off four-straight wins:
"You don't want to give life to Pens. They are kind of a streaky team that can win a lot of games in a row."
"That's our goal to finish them. (Pens) one of those teams you don't want to give confidence."
Puck drops in too many hours.
