Chris Kunitz Bundles Kimmo Timonen

Finally the Philly/Pitt series is staring to heat up. To tell you the truth I’ve expected a lot more from both teams. The Pens have jumped out to a 2-0 series lead, but now as the series has moved to Philly, the Flyers look to close out game 3 with a win. Half way through the third the Flyers have a 5-2 lead, and don’t look to be giving up their lead.

Anyway, a few things about this series:

  • This Kunitz hit on Timonen is the biggest hit of the playoffs so far. It happens in the first 8 seconds of the clip, and then is replayed, but if you’re not looking for it, you’re not going to see it. I like how Crosby crys and looks for a call at the end of the clip, all the while Kunitz is getting his lunch fed to him by Hartnell. (Although Kunitz stood his ground)
  • It has taken 3 games for these teams to warm up to each other and start showing some fire. Philly needs to get into a more physical game if they plan on turning this series around. The Flyers do not have the skill the Pens have, therefore they need to play physical and slow the game down.
  • NBC wake up with your coverage. If there are scrums in front of the net or in the corner, don’t cut to commercial. Casual fans watch the game for the fights, much like casual Nascar fans watch for the crashes.
