Back to the Finals

It will (more than likely) be a Pennsylvania showdown in the Eastern Conference finals. The Flyers vanquished the Canadiens in 5 games, culminating with a 6-4 victory tonight. The Pittsburgh Penguins will look to eliminate the New York Rangers tomorrow. The Flyers are back in the conference finals for the first time since 2004 when they lost in 7 games to the eventual Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning.

This picture was taken from CBS SportsLine and the caption is false. Very false. The Flyers actually were in the Eastern Conference finals in 2000 and 2004 (as noted above). The last time the Flyers were in the Stanley Cup finals was 1997. A good job from a major sports provider. I do not speak much about the 2000 finals. Damn you, E!*

Continuing the trend of bad captions, here is the shot of the NHL front page on ESPN. Um, guys? The final was 6-4. At least the rest is true.

*The Flyers led the Devils 3-1. Obviously the Flyers lost the next 3 games. Game 7 was in Philadelphia. I was there. Flyers lost 2-1. It sucked.
