Penguins-Flyers Rivalry Can Be More Heated Than Political Confrontation

Heated rivalries are at the heart of every competition. As the playoffs get under way, the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers provide one of the most intense matchups.

Game 1 on Wednesday night didn't disappoint. After spotting the Penguins a three-goal lead, the Flyers stormed back to win 4-3 in overtime. Those are the games that make political battles look bush.

Such a great opening game can make Democrats and Republicans go equally crazy enjoying playoff hockey.
