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...

The Philadelphia Flyers were on a roll, winning 6 straight home games… well, until yesterday’s game against the Penguins. Although Mitchell and Ness is based in Philadelphia, we try not to pick sides. We stand by both teams. And, since our company is rooted in sports history, we found some interesting footage on both teams ---the birth of the Philadelphia Flyers and the early history of hockey in Pittsburgh. So, for all of you Flyers fans out there, check out the videos below and learn something new about the Penguins. And for the Penguins fans, let’s do the same for the Flyers and spread some brotherly love. Words can’t do justice to some of the old photos, film clips, and vintage uniforms in these videos…. So take a look!
A couple of weeks ago we gave you a sneak preview of a Cam Neely Bruins jersey that we are currently producing. Well here is the completed version in all it's black and gold glory!
A 2005 inductee into the Hockey Hall of Fame, Neely spent 13 years in the NHL. He was drafted by Vancouver in 1983 and played there for three years before being traded to Boston in 1986. In ten seasons with the Bruins Neely led the team in scoring 7 times. He was a key member of the 87 - 88 and 89 - 90 teams that reached the Stanley Cup Finals. His #8 was retired by the Bruins in 2004.
This is the first Cam Neely jersey that we've made and we're thrilled to be able to bring it to you. Look for it in late August.
"If you are going to write the description of a power forward, you just put down Cam Neely.
You don't need to put anything else." Wayne Cashman
