The Flyers 09/10 Stanley Cup Playoffs, expressed through the CotN

The Stanley Cup Playoffs: The second season; the real season. 

Call it whatever you want but it’s simply the greatest sports championship tournament in the world. 


We just finished our first BSH street hockey gathering and were happy to have at least an extra 10 days of hockey.  Who thought a shootout would be so important!

During the first playoff game we reached a record +1,300 comments and 56 fantastic hockey filled days later comments reached well above 3000.


Game after game, series after series, the improbable run made for a fantastic spring. As the quality of play improved on the ice, so did the insights, insults, witty remarks and in game breakdowns on line.  Tons of new fans joined BSH and lots of people who would come to read the board became inspired to type a comment too.  Because the enemy of my enemy is my friend, comments from other teams fans as well as friends from across the globe loged onto BSH to join the conversation.   After the jump, enjoy the Flyers incredible 09/10 Stanley Cup Playoffs, expressed through the CotN

Everybody wins this one today.  Every single comment was epic, timeless, and a part of history.  Give yourself a pat on the back.

The Philadelphia Flyers are in the Eastern Conference Finals.  They've already secured a place in immortality, but the playoffs are not even half way done.  What a time to be alive.

Go Flyers.

Fifty years from now, what the Flyers did this post-season will be still be marveled at. That can never be, and never will be, taken away from us. The 2010 Chicago Blackhawks will be on a lengthy list of Stanley Cup Champions. But for as long as professional sports are a big part of American culture and society, the 2010 Philadelphia Flyers will never be forgotten, and will eternally be remembered for what they have done over the last several weeks. For as long as I live, I will never forget what I have seen over the past two months.
