Thursday, May 20, 2010, 11:41 PM
MONTREAL _ Flyers captain Mike Richards called it a “good old-fashioned ass kicking,” and no one would disagree.

BOSTON _ As either a writer or a fan, I’ve been fortunate to be at several memorable sports events in the last five-plus decades _ some good, some not so good. Some stupendous. Like the Flyers’ had-to-see-it-to-believe-it 4-3 win in Boston Friday. We probably use the word “epic”... Read more
