Quick Hits

from Stan Fischler of The Fischler Report,

* Right now the Broad Street Bullies are being bullied by the non-Smurf Rangers.

* Put it another way, as I predicted before the series, one major advantage New York has over Philly is in the area of coaching.

* Say this for the Bruins; when they finally get serious against the well-coached Red Wings, it was for the most part; series over.

* Did Brad Marchand fake that "injury?" If so, then shame on the Bruins; times ten.
