Following the game everybody was trying their best to play amateur psychologist/hockey coach and figure out what it is about the new building that has allowed Philadelphia to be so successful.
Flyers coach Peter Laviolette, in what was one of the more bizarre moments of a completely off-the-wall day, said it's all because of the ribs his team purchases after the game from a place in, of all places, Weirton, West Virginia.
"We buy ribs from DeeJays in Weirton after the game and have them delivered to the plane," said Laviolette. "And those ribs seem to be doing the trick. It went back to last year, too. Whenever the ribs are ordered, we win. I want to thank DeeJays."
In the end, it always comes back to food.
Scott Hartnell, seemingly public enemy No. 1 everytime he plays in Pittsburgh, said it's because the new building is much easier to play in because it's not a dump like the old building was, and because the fans aren't right on top of them, even though Hartnell did have one encounter with a fan on Sunday.
Yes. This playoff series is going to be great.
