Ugh, don't do that. Former Philadelphia City Council member Jim Kenney won the Democratic primary for mayor on Tuesday night, which in this city means he's likely to win the mayoralty by a landslide in the November election. Kenney is also a very big Flyers fan, judging from his tweets. Some of those tweets are great and show off his true support for the team! 3/2/93 - Lemieux Returns One of my proudest and emotional experiences as a lifelong Flyers Fan! http://t.co/O9l6g1Szpz — Jim Kenney (@JimFKenney) March 3, 2015 And on a Flyers superstitious note; the # 31 issue needs to be put...

During those restless hours overseas, after his duties as the head coach of Team Canada were behind him, Todd McLellan would just let his thoughts wander to the prospect of coaching Connor McDavid. That’s one of the perks coming with his new job as the bench boss of the Edmonton Oilers: The chance to tutor the best player to head up an NHL draft class since Sidney Crosby went first overall to the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2005.

It looked like it was going to be another epic showdown between two classic hockey superpowers, but this one wasn't even close You don't get much closer to perfection than this. From start to finish, Team Canada was utterly flawless at this year's IIHF World Championship. They dropped Russia 6-1 in Sunday's Gold Medal game to cap off a perfect overall record of 10-0 in the tournament. Canada completely dominated Russia in the deciding match, owning puck possession and finishing with a 37-12 advantage in shots. Sidney Crosby, Claude Giroux, Cody Eakin and Tyler Ennis all notched a goal and...

Canada and Russia are in Sunday's gold medal game at the IIHF World Championships in Prague, where Crosby and Malkin will be opponents for the first time since your last message board trade proposal. Saturday, Team Russia beat the United States by a 4-0 final to earn a spot in the title game, where they'll be awaited by Team Canada. That is to say, Evgeni Malkin and the Russians will be awaited by Sidney Crosby's undefeated Team Canada for a shot at Gold. It's not the Olympics, but in the absence of the Games and still awaiting the NHL's rebranded World Cup of Hockey, the IIHF tournament is...

Canada's quest for gold begins this morning in Prague, Czech Republic with their opening round robin game against Latvia. While we are grateful to Latvia for giving us Ronalds Kenins, the niceties end there. While some of the stars in the NHL decided to take a pass on this tournament (and true to form, Drew Doughty and Jeff Carter of the Kings declined, must have had some crazy partying in Vegas scheduled during the tournament I guess), but one who did not say no was the best player in the NHL, Sidney Crosby. It speaks volumes to his character when he answered the call for his country...
