'Live From the Newsroom' tackles Flyers' chances in Stanley Cup Playoffs
There is good news, better news and some bad news on the sports front today.
The good news? The Phillies game vs. the Braves got rained out last night, so we were not treated to another gruesome look at what constitutes the Phils' bullpen these days.
The better news? The Sixers will play their final game in this God-forsaken season tonight at the Wells Fargo Center vs. LeBron James and the Miami Heat. If they had a conscience they'd make admission free. If they wanted to make money, they'd make the people then pay to get out.
And the bad news? Brace yourself Flyers fans.
We used our 'Live From the Newsroom' show last night to preview the Flyers first-round matchup in the Stanley Cup playoffs vs. the Rangers.
All three of our sports writers, Flyers beat writer and sports editor Rob Parent, Matt DeGeorge, who just covered the Frozen Four, and Bob Grotz like the Rangers.
Most believe the Flyers will fall in either six or seven games.
The key likely will be whether the Flyers can muster a win in Madison Square Garden, where they have dropped eight straight games.
It was left to me to stick up for the locals. I'm picking the Flyers in seven. And yes, I have my fingers and toes crossed.
