The Flyers beat the Penguins in the first round of the playoffs last year, yet it wasn't as simple as that. The teams combined for 56 goals, hundreds of penalty minutes, and multiple suspensions. It was simultaneously the ugliest and most entertaining playoff series in recent member. But the Flyers did win it.
So why is NBC, in this promo for an opening day rematch, teasing that "the Flyers have their sights set on revenge for last season's playoff loss to Pitt?"
But hey, hockey starts in two days! Aren't we all excited?
