Evgeni Malkin said during Game 3 against the Flyers that the Flyers simply gave up when they went down 3-1 against the Pens. I think most people who watched the series would probably agree. The Flyers didn't belong on the same ice as the Pens for most of the series, and I'm not even sure that was a pro team the Flyers put out on the ice Game 5.
And my guess is the NHL didn't exactly approve of this. Why? Well, because they're currently taking a shot at the Flyers on the NHL Shop home page. Take a look at this.
Yes, you too can get a free sleeve of golf balls when you buy a Flyers golf hat. Be just like the team that seemingly had its mind focused in on the golf course after Game 2.
It's still up on the NHL Shop home page when I posted this, so check it out if you want.
Hey, with any luck, you might run into a Flyer out at the old country club. Although be careful, he's probably been mentally prepared to play for more than a week.
