At this particular point in time, the Philadelphia Daily News can pretty much say whatever it wants about the Penguins. Sidney Crosby may not actually be a coward and surprised us all when he got into it with some of the Flyers earlier in the series, but at the moment Philadelphia owns Pittsburgh. Most of us expected the match-up between the No. 4 and No. 5 seeds in the Eastern Conference to be competitive, with many predicting that Crosby and company would come out on top in the interstate rivalry.
Instead, Philly leads the series 3-0 and has a chance to send Pittsburgh to the golf course on Wednesday night. If ever there were an opportune time to call your opponent’s star player a coward, the day of a possible sweep is it.
