      Didn’t watch the video but I’m assuming it’s just a 2 minute tutorial video by Crosby explaining how to change a tampon.

      Except with home ice advantage against the 6th seeded Devils, evidently

        i’m a Flyers fan and even had to thumbs up that comment. Yes beating the Pens was fun, but you have to go a little farther and not too lose to the pathetic Devils

      Much better video than that stupid penguins promo.

    Prediction: Every career and single-season NHL record currently held by Wayne Gretzky will still be held by him when this season ends. This is especially true of his 51 game points streak. :-)

      Hey genius, this stupid video is already the first comment posted here. There really are a few IQ points missing in those from Pittsburgh.

        So you’re an admitted bandwagon fan. That’s soooooo much better.

    I am praying that Derek Roy left with the skirts that some of the Sabres seemed to be burdened with the past few years, they now have three solid lines Vanek, Pominville and Hodgson, Grigorenko, Ott and Leino and Ennis, Stafford and Foligno!!! Hopefully Myers grew a set and learned some tricks while spending some time with Shea Weber over the summer. Better come out hard and fast, playoffs in about 100 days! No excuses this year. Get Rob Ray to work with the bangers and Perrault and Robert to groom the ones with the scoring touch Terry. Ruff and Darcy better not screw this one up!
