PHILADELPHIA, PA - APRIL 18: Pascal Dupuis #9 of the Pittsburgh Penguins celebrates his goal at 14:59 of the second period against the Philadelphia Flyers in Game Four of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals during the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at Wells Fargo Center on April 18, 2012 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

What more can you really say about the Pittsburgh Penguins 10-3 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers except…do you think the NHL will let the Penguins give a couple of those goals back so they can use them on Friday instead? After all, a blowout is nice and all, but what they really need right now is a second win.

Based on what Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said, it doesn’t sound like the Penguins will let the blowout go to their heads.

“We had one goal in mind today and that was one win,” Bylsma said. “That will remain the goal Friday. It’s still 3-1 Flyers and our focus still has to be one win on Friday.”

The Philadelphia Flyers have three more chances to beat the Pittsburgh Penguins, so they have no reason to panic yet. That being said, they should know more than most that a 3-0 series lead can be overcome.

    I think the pens fans stopped watching after Sunday and the Flyers fans are a taking a mulligan and went to bed early.

      No we just got tired of the Flyers fans on here that have nothing better to do than talk about how “Dirty” our team is.

    Rough night between the Flyers sh!tting themselves and the Phillies losing 1-0 in extra innings. Philadelphia just needs to hit snooze a couple times, but we’ll survive.

    Pens fans are still here but we learned talk is cheap. Can’t wait for Friday.
