They showed the replay on TSN2. The Pens' player, I think it was Cooke, clearly sticked Pronger right in the face - and they showed Pronger's bleeding nose too.

yeah I figured it was legit, Pronger wouldn't take himself out of the play otherwise.

After what cooke did to savard, and tries to do the best players on any opposing team i would love to see him kicked out of the league. He never makes a hit where he doesn't leave his feet.

Well Briere and Carcillo are probably two of the worst divers in the league, but I really don't think Pronger would have faked a high stick in the defensive zone, with Pittsburgh attacking. Briere was trying to buy a high stick in the 3rd, but it didn't work

It's getting as bad as soccer out there sometimes.

Even Briere's hooking penalty could have been holding the stick the other way.

He did put it in there, but the Dman grabbed it with the crook of his arm and held it.

Pity that players feel they have to do stuff like that instead of just fighting through it.

Yeah and the worst part is that it works most of the time unless the ref has a really good view of what is going on

if they called unsportsman like for every player that embelished there would be 10-12 PP per team per game. players dive and embelsih all the time.
as the saying goes it is what it is

Hey guys have we thanked the NHL for suspending Shelley? Without them, Z would have been out of the lineup and couldn't have scored that second goal! Thanks NHL!!!

If called, it would have been a 6on3, and it would be hard to imagine the Flyers winning in regulation. No call was made and the Flyers held on to win.

Not that it disproves any of the other things you're saying (because it doesn't), but didn't that high stick happen to Langenbrunner with like four seconds left in the game?

Carter was plain dirty last night in the defensive zone.

The Pittsburgh/Philadelphia NHL game Tuesday night was the most watched regular season game ever on VERSUS (beating the 2010/11 season opener on 10/07/10 featuring Philly/Pittsburgh, 730,000 viewers). It was also the most watched regular season NHL telecast on cable since 12/04/03 (Detroit/St Louis on ESPN; 758,000 viewers).

Opening night was different, but I suspect this game benefitted from being on a night where there weren't many other games.

Let's not forget about the Finals' numbers. Examples...

Game 1 -- was the highest rated Game One in the U.S. since the 1999 Finals with a 2.8 overnight rating.

Game 2 -- The game was viewed by 5.91 million people in the States, the highest rated Finals Game 2 on record. Through two games on NBC the Finals averaged 5.16 million viewers, the highest for the first two games on U.S. broadcast TV since 1997, when Philly and Detroit drew 5.69 million on FOX.

Game 3 -- was seen by an estimated 3.6 million viewers on Versus, the highest total in the network's 15-year history.

Game 6 -- had 8.28 million viewers and was the most-watched and highest-rated NHL game in 36 years, since Game 3 of the Boston Bruins-Flyers series in 1974 when 8.9 million watched. The four games in the Finals carried by NBC averaged 6.1 million viewers, the best showing for hockey on network TV in 13 years. Game 6 averaged 4.077 million viewers on CBC, the highest audience ever for an all-U.S. Stanley Cup Final on that network.

Yes, but what does it mean?

The NHL has shown no reason to believe they can market anything. The Winter Classic will not be on in my house because it's another Crosby/Ovy love fest being shoved down our throats. The Rangers should have been in this year's Classic, IMO.

It would be abdurd not to consider the Chicago factor in the spiked ratings. It's why we saw markets in places like southwest Florida and Arizona have unusually high numbers referenced -- transplanted residents. That said, we also see the Flyers mentioned in these ratings whether its the 70s, 90s or 2010.

Exactly. Since I can remember, I see Flyers' fans at every road game. And not just a few, either.

EDIT: What I mean is, they're popular all over.
