Bad start for Penguins against Flyers

It was one heck of a way for the Pittsburgh Penguins to open the Stanley Cup playoffs Wednesday night.

They had a 3-0 lead and plenty of momentum.

So much for that, along with home-ice advantage in their series against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Stanley Cup contenders don't go around losing games when their up three goals or two goals in the third period.

Luckily, it was only one game, and it was the first game of the series.

There's plenty of time for the Penguins to rebound.

However, the Flyers have owned the Penguins this season. Now the Flyers know they can recover from being three goals down in a game.

I'd like to think that one game doesn't make a series.

But this one left Penguins' fans with a sour taste in their mouths.

There’s no teaching that’s going to correct it. It just comes down to it’s a physically violent game. Football players are in a car wreck every week.
