Pens Finish Off Flyers

By winning Game 6 5-3.  Remarkable turnaround.  The Flyers scored twice late in the 1st period and got a 3rd goal early in the 2nd to take a 3-0 lead and it seemed certain this series was heading to a decisive Game 7 in Pittsburgh.  However, Max Talbott picked a fight and it seemed to completely change the momentum of the game.  It did nothing to quite the Philadelphia crowd, but it awakened a slumbering Pittsburgh team.  They scored 2 quick goals right afterwards, got it tied by the end of the 2nd, and went ahead early in the 3rd.  After that it was all Marc Andre Fleury somehow stoning several great Philly scoring chances.  Crosby added the empty net frosting on the cake and it was time for the handshake line.

If the Rangers finish off Washington, they would play Boston and the Pens would get the winner of the Carolina v New Jersey series.  But if the Capitals come back the Pens play them if Carolina wins, or they play Boston if New Jersey wins.  The Pens would have home ice on Carolina or open on the road with the other options.  I assume Game 1 will be somewhere between Thursday and Saturday.  Should be fun.
