Nearly the same record. That’s almost uncanny.

A lot has been made, especially on Twitter, about booing Jaromir Jagr and Max Talbot.
I am firmly in the boo them camp. It’s not the fact that they left per se, but the circumstances. Jagr is a clear-cut case of a necessary boo. Talbot is not as open and shut but in my opinion he is just a douche. Talbot is the type of guy I would boo regardless. The only thing he had going for him was being Mr. Penguin, something that is counteracted by going to the rotten Flyers.
So please, boo these gentlemen to you hearts desire! Two peas in a pod, or two douches in a bag.
The Pens lost to the Flyers in the first meeting in Philly 3-2..
James Neal and Evgeni Malkin scored the goals for the good guys, but it just wasn’t enough in the end.
Tyler Kennedy vs. Harry Zolnierczyk
Kennedy can be a little beast, no?
