Oh, Canada!

The Mitchell & Ness office is buzzing about the excitement brought by the NHL playoffs right now. Last night, the Montreal Canadiens defeated the Washington Capitals in game 7 to became the first No. 8 team to come back from a 3-1 series deficit to knock off a No. 1 team since the NHL adopted its new playoff format in 1994. Next up for the Habs are the defending Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins. 

One M&N staffer even yelled, 'Go Habs', as he walked in this morning, not because he is a Canadiens fan, but because the outcome of last night's game determined the Flyers' opponent for the Conference Semifinals...the rival Boston Bruins. These two teams have not met in the postseason since 1978 when the Bruins defeated the Flyers in five games.  Four years prior, the Flyers upset the Bruins in the 1974 Finals and went on to win the Stanley Cup. Obviously, we are hoping for a repeat of '74...
