“It’s easy to hate the Flyers. They’ve been the Broad Street Bullies, their fans are loud and obnoxious. If you’re from Philly that’s great, if you’re not you hate them. It’s fun to hate the Flyers, just like it’s fun for them to hate our fans and our team. It should be a good series as far as hate goes.”
– Canadiens defenseman Hal Gill.
