Preview: The final battle of Pennsylvania is finally (unfortunately) upon us

In the past, the very late season Flyers-Penguins matchups were always something to circle on the calendar. They’ve often held playoff implications or served as a preview for the first round. This year? Not so much. The Flyers are one of the worst teams in the NHL and we’ve been rooting for them to lose to maximize their draft position for at least a month while the Penguins are a 100-point team gearing up for the playoffs for the 16th year in a row. It’s, of course, still in our best interest to lose today, but why, oh why, does it have to be to Pittsburgh?
